How do people get the pointy hand to hold the sai in snazzy photos?
do you mean similar to this?

Right now Calendars.com has Raph in stock. That is the only place that does right now that I can find. Ebay is the place for Don right now, unless someone here has an extra to hook you up with. Also Preorders are open at many online retailers. These are amazing man you'll love them once you find them.

Yeah I do! They won't stay in his hands though. Maybe I'll use clear rubber bands.

I just had to push it into gap a lil bit. He's stayed perfectly fine and they've never fallen out.

You guys I'm an idiot. Please don't laugh schadenfreude style at me. I wasn't trying to be rough with my Raph but it required considerable effort to get his legs to move. As all the videos I watched seemed to be showing force plus that awful ratchet sound, I figured it was okay. Anyway the leg seemed to drop compared to the other leg and loosen, and when I tried to just move it back into its original position and leave it like that forever, it snapped off. So I've attached some pictures in the hopes that someone can suggest something. My thought is to epoxy it where it broke and never move that stupid leg again.

Very sad I can relate.

The below link could be helpful. I would not use the glue pen again.

Thanks for this. Sorry something similar happened to you. This is why I can't have nice things. Of course I'll have to buy another Raph.

Wow, so sorry!
Those pictures of the broken leg really hurt.
Hope you can work something out.

I'm glad mine arrived well here in the Netherlands. I even saw a Raph with no eyes at all.

I've been worrying about those hip joints. I won't be moving the legs on mine very often now. Sorry, man.

Raph seems common on eBay now. Can't help but wonder why EE still hasn't gotten their next shipment.

Contact NECA. They are usually really great about things like this.

I tried to find their contact but their website said over and over again to contact the retailer first. So I contacted CMDSTORE and they are kindly going to send me a new Raph in exchange. I will hair dryer the crap out of his joints before trying any snazzy poses. I think I'll avoid the hips altogether from now on.

I'm convinced they don't keep track of any numbers of orders.

I spent extra for Raph as I knew there was a supply issue, but I put in an order for Don with EE and don't really know if that's something that will come through.

Cool, mine arrives today!!! I didn't realize they are based in Austin, well at least that's where mine is coming from. Got my shipping confirmation yesterday and woke up this morning to find out it's being delivered today.
