Error corrected. The auto-correct on my device is extremely aggressive and annoying.

Glad you are getting a proper replacement. I have contacted NECA through email a couple of times. They have always been great about fixing the problem.

Carefull bending those joints right after the hair dryer. They might be a bit soft

No I did not, I ordered mine on EntertainmentEarth. I must have ordered it right before they got a shipment because i ordered for preorder and it shipped the following week.

Got Raph in mail today from Calendars, 9 out of 10 for condition. Good enough for me to cancel my order with EE. I kept my EE order for Leo though. I'm keeping in box for now so condition is very important.

Thanks for the advice. I'm a doofus. Well actually I just have never owned a 1/4 scale figure. Like melty soft? Is there a safer way than a hair dryer?

It won't melt but don't keep the dryer in one place either. What he meant was if you use the dryer method or the boiled water method make sure everthing sets straight once the plastic is cooled.

The price of Raphael has come down. Considerably. I bought three to fill old eBay orders. The ones I pre-order Ed from EE are up for grabs now. $150 shipped to anywhere in the US except Hawaii or Alaska.

$200 shipped internationally.

I paid $115 shipped thru BBTS
I cannot stress how amazing these figures are. Pics don't even do them justice. Every time I see Raph and Donnie in my room, it feels like the characters are literally THERE.

Guess I shouldn't have canceled my bbts order for EE...Will they likely get Raph at some point or am I better off buying elsewhere at this point? Never used ee before

I have three pre-orders for Raphael (next shipment scheduled for June) that I will have to cancel if nobody wants them. $150 shipped to anywhere in the US except Hawaii and Alaska. $200 shipped internationally.

I don't think anyone knows for sure. I bought him for pricier as he is in high demand. I am waiting for EE for Don to be re-shipped, no idea if it will happen.

I like this figure so much, that I'm inspired to do some Spring Cleaning.
Get rid of some older things and make way for the new.

Anybody think there is still hope for Leo in May? I notice NECA doesn't even have him on the shipping calendar yet.

Am I crazy; or do some photos of Raph make it look like his mouth is closed? That's not a complaint. He is my favorite thus far.

No, you're not crazy. His mouth does look closed in some shots but that's due to his head looking downward.

I kinda like it. More posing options.
