My replacement heads showed up today, I needed 3 of the turtles and a new foot soldier head, to my surprise they sent me another complete foot soldier which made the wait totally worth it.

I got a set of heads today, but some of them still look like they are staring straight up

Would I be better off to replace my head and neck with new one,
or try to just swap the heads by themselves?

Anybody use boiling water to take these apart?

I boiled and popped mine, but didn't separate the necks from heads. The head and neck came off together on all of mine so I swapped the whole thing.

I ended up setting him in front of a heater for a while. Took this after pulling the head.

Including shipping about 210, I hope they come through.
The order has not been cancelled yet, and the set is still available to pre-order at the moment.

Seems like the best (least expensive) method for fans in Europe at the moment.
I did at 205$ plus 20-30$ less on shipping compaird to bbts its the best deal fore all In europe.just wish Neca did put out a foot pack at nycc instead of nothing because if you want more foots its not cheap to buy the set and you also Get a lot of figurens you dont need

Heat is the trick. I put mine in front of my space heater. Right in front of it gets pretty warm. They need to be soft but not too soft. Plastic should give but not seem like it is going to rip. I think I used vice grips wrapped in cloth to hold the neck while I separated it from the head. Heated the new head and neck to put them back on.

Was pretty cool neca sent me a whole Krang walker when all I needed was one of the feet. They also sent both sets of Shredders extra hands when I was only missing one hand. Great extras to have around.

I've been too scared to try it to be honest but I'll give it a go and apply some gentle heat and see what happens
Shouldn't have to be doing this with a high end product

It's around $245 in USD.
Nothing has changed with my order yet, really hope they do ship it as this was still the best price I could find the set for (for orders outside the US anyway).

I do fear the import costs though.

Good luck. My concern was tearing, as I think the heat softened plastic would do that easily. I error on the side of being not soft enough and having to add more heat.
