I never order anything from China or Hong Kong. I always just assume theyíre knock offs or bootlegs. I donít think this figureís been out long enough to have a bootleg though. Iíll be interested to see if you get the real thing or not.

I found great 1/6th scale stands, but what do you use for 1/4 scale?
I use these for all my 1/4 scale figures

Where do you attach these? I am looking at possibly getting a few, but how do you work around the shell for these? Do you have pics?

I dont use them for the Turtles but they do fit around the shell if you bend them open a bit... on human figures they go perfect around the waist, Ill post pics later when I'm home

They make versions with wider clips. These are the ones I used, they fit loosely around the Turtles' "waists" and support them up pretty well:

How'd you finally get him to stand?

Really a question for anyone. My foot soldier fell over 3 times before I finally gave up and just, right now, have him leaning back actually, heh. I got in Shredder but haven't opened him yet. Don't want to risk breakage if someone has found the secret to get them standing.

Mine fell over 4 times before I ordered that black amazon stand referenced earlier. And it works perfectly if you display him with the cape on it covers the whole stand anyways.

I have him just standing with his spear in one hand other end resting on the ground. I found out with Donatello it really helps prop them up. That said Shredder is on a carpeted floor. So even if he falls not likely to do much.

For me in Canada, I went to a Value Village (probably some other 2nd hand store in the States)and found 3 metal doll stands for a whopping $4 similar to that on Amazon. I've tried intentionally pushing my foot soldier over and he stands his ground. I'm glad I have more for when Shredder comes!

Got Shredder today. Man this thing is amazing, the details and realism. Neca knocked this TMNT line out of the park.

Randy said on Twitter that they're not planning on bringing Splinter to the q scale line. That's really ******.

Randy says a lot of things that end up changing. I wouldn't get too wound up about it.

Being that they already have the sculpt, Iím sure they wonít turn down free money. I definitely see him getting made. They will come around to it.

Yeah, you guys are probably right, and I hope you are.

Overall though, NECA is just making collecting TMNT not fun. Everything is difficult to get. They won't commit to any line. They play coy with Every. Friggin. Release. Their lack of honesty and transparency to their supporters is probably at heart of it all.

I get that "it's just business" to get people to buy into their "less desired" release of a figure by making them think nothing else will come out, then release the more desired one later, and get people to double dip, but it feels like that's their whole business model anymore.

I really hope Super7's line looks amazing, because collecting their figures is a lot more fun and easy.

NECA has great sculpts, but over the years I've just gotten more and more frustrated with how they run things. I'm looking forward to competition.

Right now they have NO competition, and if you talk about quality and price point no one can touch them. Playmates? Hell no. Figuarts? Dead and pricey. Super 7 might do it, but even then theyll be 35 each. NECA just has the sweet spot covered of quality and price that no one will be able to compete with.

Pretty accurately sums up how I feel about them, too.
