Received my donatello today.

Positive = The arms are tighter.

negatives = his bo staff holder dropped straight off out of the box and his right knee joint is super floppy, his stiff left leg is holding him up.

At the moment I much prefer the yellow on my leo, will be interesting to see how the others turn out.

After reading everyone's replies about quality control and all the issues they have it's an easy pass. Which is very unfortunate because if these were higher quality I would grab a set.

Also I'm not sure if it's intentional but the red bandana on my Donnie is a darker shade of red than the leo red bandana when posed next to him.

Got my Donatello yesterday and really happy with him.

Panicked a bit when I first opened him as it looked like there was some green paint on his nose but it rubbed right off so all good.

The only QC nitpick I'd have is that the seam on his regular (purple bandana) face is really noticeable, far more so than Leo's ever was (I wouldn't have noticed Leo's if people hadn't raised it as an issue online). His comic face is fine, you can hardly tell there's a seam.

But that's it. Head definitely pops on and off easier, bo staff went into his hands much easier than Leo's katana ever did, seam on the comic face is better, so all round a definite improvement (and I say this as someone who loves Leo and didn't really have an issues there).

Bring on Mikey and Raph! Let's get this team finished

Mondo said recently late July/early August for Mike, and Raph to follow a month later.

I really don't want to be the dude who goes online and complains about something they bought online, but...

Spoiler:
I'm really bummed on my experience with buying these figures.
I got Leonardo and Donatello, and I wish I hadn't. They're great looking figures, but to pay $180 and have this kind of experience definitely sucks.

For those who it may concern, I got a notification of Mikey shipping in the beginning of August from Sideshow.
