If the pics are the actual bootlegs they look good and hard to pass up for the price (I've paid over twice that)

Mine still haven't arrived but are in the country apparently

They are okay I guess

I just got my China versions in last week and I am happy with them. They might not look as nice as the real deal but for less than half the money I am satisfied with these guys. They look the part and I experienced no QC issues whatsoever with them. It is true that Raphael's sai are made of bendable rubber and the color of the joints of Donatello do not exactly match the color of the rest of the figure but that's it. The eyes work, the paint is okay (not flawless but okay), the accessories are all there and look good, the joints all work and hold poses okay. Overall, regading the price of the real figures, I would feel ripped off if I had paid $70 a piece excluding shipping and import tax instead of the $80 I paid in total for all four TMNT.

Huh. Yours actually don't look half bad. Interesting. I guess there are varying levels of quality out there for these, an added risk, but cool in a way. Some folks may yet have a chance.

Dang..thanks for the heads up on that one! $40 for the 4 figures is too hard to pass up! Even if they need a little work on them it's a good deal for $10 a figure. I just hope they have all of their limbs, digits, etc...

My China Revoltechs

Mine have arrived and look pretty ok.

Could see Leo's head wobbling in the box so opened him first.

Like the review earlier the heads both needed some plastic removing from inside to fit properly (eliminating the wobble). The eyes do move. All joints seem pretty ok and hold position.



Problems:

Both scabbards seem to not be fitted together properly. (bit of glue should sort this out)



Main head has a gap at the bottom



As soon as I put the display stand/manhole cover together the peg to hold it together snapped off (Glue time again)



Other than that figure seems pretty great. I was prepared to be all....



Worth noting I haven't got the originals or any other Revoltech products to compare them with.

Will put up pics of the others as I open them. If anyone wants any particular pics taken let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Thanks to Spidergreg for letting me know about these for $40 and to Casey Jones and Schildpad for the additional pics!! I was not going to buy these bootlegs, but for $10 a piece I can live with the minor issues these have. I just bought a set off ebay from the seller Spidergreg mentioned. I'll post pics as well once I have them in hand.

No idea what they are. Just found them in the bay of e. They are pretty sweet tho. Leo and Raph have removable weapons that you can tuck into the armbands like they are holding them. Not a big plushie guy but I like these. Bought another set to sell on ebay this month. Turning a nice profit importing turtle merch.
