Also does any one else wish we could get after market head like a happy leo, Raph, and Donnie and an angry/ ready face for Mikey. I love these figures kinda weird Donnie have a different neck though limits him slightly can't wait to pose these with my neca and classics line

I'm pretty jealous of you guys. I had to cancel my preorder. We just bought a home, and have been doing some renovations to it. I was hoping to have some money set aside for these figures, but... figures, or house? House of course. Eventually, though, I'll have these. I may pay out of the ass for them, but, from all the pictures I see, I have to have them. They're amazing.

Hello,

I have ordered Leo, Raph, Don and Mike on HobbyLink Japan. It says you can pay without having a creditcard.

I want to transfer the money for the order as I received the payment request, but unfortunately I don't have a creditcard, visacard etc. I just have a normal bankcard. So I want to add money to my PayPal account and then transfer the money to them via PayPal account. But to do that I must input an e-mailaddress. Which e-mail can I use? orders@hlj.com? If I do this I still must choose a creditcard into the following menu, I don't get it.

I have matched my bankaccount with my PayPal account but I only must prove that I'm the owner of the bankaccount via inputting two small amounts PayPal had transferred to my bankaccount. Haven't received those yet because it's weekend. So maybe this is the problem? I also mailed them but they probably not are open now.

Anyone have suggestions or the same problem?

Hey you guys who used the EMS shipping method, are there any extra fees you should pay in the US?
Thanks a lot.

no import fees of any kind in the usa. Once you pay for your items and the shipping, that is the only cost. if you are in another country you'll need to know if that's not the case where you live.

by bank card i assume that is the same as a debit card. in which case i think it should work just like a credit card? does it have a visa, mastercard, discover etc. logo on it?

be warned that unless you do a direct bank transfer via paypal to pay for overseas items, paypal may impose a fee on you for currency conversion. I believe it will warn you about this during the check-out process. it probably won't be a big fee but any unnecessary costs can be avoided if you pay by bank transfer.

Yeah you may want to wait for those small transfers to your bank account to show up before paying, I bet it will show soon.

anyway just follow hlj's instructions on their site as well as paypal's own instructions i'm sure you can figure it out. you should have your bank account linked to your paypal though for these situations if you want it to go smoother.

sorry if this was not very helpful

Around two weeks (to the USA) but it could be longer, there are various factors that could cause delay as it is impacted by the current cargo situation on planes which carry the SAL deliveries. If there is a period of not much room on the planes then it will cause delays.

i got SAL with all 4 and im still waiting on Leo and Raph, when you choose a shipping method it gives you a estimated wait time SAL is the slowest speed which is 10-30 business days.

Got mine via SAL just under 2 weeks to Singapore. I'm guessing it could be closer to 3 weeks to the United States.

Yes, these use revoltech joints, I could put the arms, head or legs of a completely different figure all together on them, so I did.

I didn't know we have The Incredibles figs! That's terrific! *_*
Nice that the joints can be used across all of their figures.

NECA Don vs Revol-Don Vs Playmates Don size comparison


Revoltech likes angry faces.

Completed- this has been standing like this for over an hour now. Pretty stable. Donny is attached to the 1 way diorama piece.





For the record I had already done this with the 2012 release tmnt figs:
(I seem to have lost the pic where I was able to take my hand away- it only stood for about 10 seconds- its somewhere here on the drome)
Spoiler:





More pics in my imgur album if you are interested in how it was assembled.
