Anyone preorder from BBTS? Waiting for mine to process and ship.

*Honestly I don't know why I preordered Mikey. That design for his face is so typical, and it sticks out so much compared to the others in a really bad way. I've seen him in person: the orange is a little too bright compared to the other bandanas. I only preordered him just to complete the set.

Just wondering where were all the face profilers in the pre production stage.
I like the look.

They were probably too busy complaining about some other issue. Me too I wasn't very sure about the expression they decided to give him since the first bts pics I saw, didn't really liked the eyes that looked too wide opened, but from pics posted by who already has it in hands I can say that all worries had no reason to be, he looks great, no too exaggerated

You already received a mail from BBTS about your order being processed soon? I still haven't got any words from them and I preordered as soon as it was on

I need some of these for customization so if you can hold it until I get my shipment I will trade you your damaged box one for a good one.

How picky are you? I opened one up for customization because of some light damage to the box's corners.

What you really need is just the empty box in good condition now that I think about it. I will send you pictures of mine of you are interested.

I second this 100%. Originally I had hope he had a little bit more of a reserved happy expression ... like maybe in line with the Playmates 1990 Adult Collector figure he had ... but in hands, this guy is easily one of my favorites in this line so far.

Has anyone else experienced anymore loose-ish torsos with these guys still? I know my Raphael still has a habit on leaning on his front shell which can make posing a little difficult.

Just Raph issues on the torso for me. But thats also the one that my cat nocked over and now has a really loose ankle. With disguise Raph coming im not that mad about it, but had it been any other turtle with how rare these are getting...I would have been MAD.

Yeah ... I almost want to get the Raphael in disguise to test the difference in the upper torso to see if it was just something that might've affected the first batch or so.

I know I saw in some reviews they mentioned how much he wiggled around compared to Donatello and by the time I got Leo ... I was convinced he was a little looser since Don and Leo had more of a shoulder belt to keep them in place. By the time Mikey arrived ... I realized it's just Raph with the little bit of a looser torso. Let me know if you notice a difference with Raph in disguise comes in!

Cats are so funny though ... until I get a proper shelving unit to sit these guys in my spare room (that we're still trying to figure out what to do with) the brothers are just hanging out in a little section of the room. I was taking photos and my cat Moon just walked by.

Yeah, will do ... I'm moreso leaning towards not getting that one at all, but I will hit you up if plans change!

Now that I think about it, the Raphael I had originally that wound up being sent to Tokka when his got stolen did fall over constantly due to a very loose torso. I don't know that it has anything to do with a strapless belt though, maybe just poor QC due to having to meet an unprecedented demand.

Has anyone bothered to catalogue all of the variations that have presented with the re-releases of Don and Raph?

Did anyone notice bright orange highlights to Mike's elbow and knee pads that the other turtles didn't have?

I've seen him in person, and I'm still not into his look.

I pre-ordered Mikey from EE as soon as it became available to purchase. I've only received e-mails reminding me that I had placed the order, but nothing concerning the order finally being processed to be shipped. I know EE is slow, but hopefully they start shipping out within the next couple of weeks.
