Nope, I canceled my order through HLJ and went with Amiami. Why? Because of them being cheaper and shipping will more than likely be slightly less. Not much... but any bit helps.

I love BBTS, but all the Japanese retailers pack their stuff much better. My latest gets were wrapped in tissue paper, then bubble wrapped, taped, and padded in a box.

Last shipment from BBTS? Bunch of figures in a box with no padding.

BBTS is good for the POL and a fine retailer, but HLJ, AmiAmi and HobbySearch all have at the bare minimum, as good of shipping and in my experience, much better.

These look amazing. If these do well, do any of you think Nick/Viacom/Fred Wolf would let an OT set come to fruition? I'd be excited to see how Revoltech would do it

These look to be the best turtles we've gotten ever since the NECA ones!

It is done, thanks.

Mikey does have that very nice spinning nunchuck accessory. Why didn't playmates come up with that?

I emailed them and they informed that I can't combine the orders as they are in separate calendar months. What a bummer

You mean they won't be released all together?
Good news for my wallet !!!

With them being so expensive and valuable, these will definitely stay MISB.

Leo and Raph are late Sept... and Mike and Don are early Oct... so they aren't spaced that far apart.

Two weeks maybe? Three? Who knows for sure.
