And what is the most reliable preorder? BBTS? EE?
From my experience with them (calendars), Leo was in stock maybe a month or so after neca had them on eBay. I have never ordered anything from BBTS, on the other hand, EE took for ever to get Leo in stock. I got tired of waiting and canceled my order with them.

This is how it went down for me so far.

Don: ToysRUs.
Raph: EE preorder but canceled after delay and went with Calendars instead.
Leo: EE preorder but canceled after delay and went with NECAs eBay instead.
Mikey: preorder a few weeks ago from Calendars.

I guess you could say I don't like EE much. I'm not sure if it's just me but it seems like Calendars is stating a date a little after others but the previous releases they had about the same time or even before others. Never shopped with BBTS before.

The best experiences I've had were with ToysRUs and Neca's eBay. I have Neca on push notifications for social media so once they post that Mikey is up on eBay I'll be ordering it asap. Leo came in 3 weeks from when I ordered I believe.

Watched the 1990 movie yesterday. Fantastic movie. It really makes my admiration for the NECA figures even bigger. They are perfect in my view. Just waiting for Mike now!

This may sound like a stupid question but I have noticed that everyone who has Donnie, their Bo staff looks like a light brown color where mine looks like a dark brown. Is it due to lighting or did the 2nd batch of Don's have a different paint job?

I got Leo in the mail last week - took me a little while to get around to opening him up. He's great. NECA did a wonderful job on these.

He's a little walleyed, but it looks fine in person. The mask tends to cast a shadow in his right eye anyway.

If you pop the head off and take a peek inside you'll see how the eyes are attached. You might laugh when you see for yourself. I doubt it would be hard to move that eye.

Yeah, all of mine are that way, to some degree. I doubt anybody's is perfect or if they are it was out of luck. It's pretty hard what with the depth of the sockets and the shadows cast by the mask to even see the eyes even up close (which is a gripe I have with them, even if it is accurate)....so, that helps me live with it.
