Well I went with Raph, but I'll probably get Leo next if I am really impressed.

I ordered from BigBadToyStore, which says their new shipments should arrive in March. Seems unlikely, seeing as we are nearly in April.
Anyone else waiting on a Raph from them?

Safe to say they don't charge until they ship the item? Was hoping they would charge right away but no big deal

So Leo is slated to release in May, correct?

If so, gotta keep my eyes open when NECA releases them on their eBay page. Ordered both Raphael and Donatello from them and received them in a week. Very happy.

I order from EE. They are the cheapest around. I'll wait an extra week to save $15 each figure. By the tike I finish the set the savings will almost pay for a whole figure.

Yeah I'm still waiting on BBTS. I'm starting to notice a lot of their pre-order stuff gets shipped much later after release. That's really the only problem I've had with them though. They don't charge until the item ships.

Yep, still waiting. I did get one from Dorkside Toys a long time ago but waiting for the 2nd from BBTS.

Extra week? I ordered Don, Raph and Leo from them first week of March. It said Don and Raph would likely be shipping in March. Now it's May for both. Does EE always send it eventually or am I just kidding myself?

If I can actually get hold of them (UK) I'm in the same position as you.

I'm currently leaning towards Leo as his model seems to be almost near perfection (the others are pretty much spot on too, but for me, from the pics Leo just has that something extra).

But even when I think I've decided I then think should I get Raph...

Exactly.

And then I find myself thinking "fine, I'll just get both", but somehow having two of them feels more awkward than just having one.

I went ahead and ordered Raph, but no matter which one you get, you'll probably fall in love once you see it in person.

That's how I finally decided I just had to make room in the budget and shelf for all 4.

I just got my Don today and after having both released figures in hand I must say that I am 100 percent in for all four. I'd advise all of you that are worried about room to make room, and get all four. Sell some stuff to make the space and I don't think you'd regret it. These figures are worth more than NECA's asking price, don't be afraid to pay import fees to get them.

Thats what Ive been trying to tell people. You really cant appreciate these until you have them in hand and then everyone is literally blown away. I love this line.

I'm struggling with this too. I've contacted Coro about the possibility of using a US address for initial shipment, but my card (UK billing address). Should be OK to do, but I need to confirm the US address.

I would prefer to just order and get shipment direct but I don't think this is a possibility for the UK?

If you find anything let me know!

On the subject of which Turtle to buy, I'm also drawn towards Don because he's more of a character, for example you wouldn't be surprised to see him in a wizards hat, as we've seen from previous posts!

Mine was also confirmed. Sounds like they should hopefully ship within a week or two.
