So in posing with Raphael more, it's really hard for me to get him in as much dynamic poses without him leaning on his front shell a lot I noticed. I was actually kind of shocked because his joints weren't stiff AT ALL when I got him out of the box compared to Donatello which took some time to loosen everything up. It's not like it's flimsy or anything and I can still get his hands raised and posed, but the arms didn't feel as stuck in place as I think these figures tend to be when you first get them.

Also, I'm not sure if it was mentioned here or on the Sideshow Freaks forum but the paint seems to come off fairly easily on the "metal" part of the sai after messing around with it on his belt. I may have to repaint it if I keep trying to store it in his holster unfortunately.



Is anyone else's Raph having "topple forward" of an ab crunch as this? I saw that some people were having issues with Donnie so is this similar?


holding it up



leaning forward

All in all, I'm still really happy with the figure and can't wait for the rest of them. What kind of poses are you guys sticking with for Raph?

Great pictures, yep that's exactly what my Don does in regards to your ab crunch question.

Hey thanks! Yeah, it's crazy...it's not as apparent on my Donatello as I felt it was on Raphael but either way the figure is still badass. Really excited to get these guys displayed in a proper setting soon.

My EE order says...

"1 Item Shipped, 1 Item on Backorder." Which is confusing me.

I only ordered one item and it makes it sound like I ordered two items and one has already shipped. Not true.

I am hoping before the month is over that it will change to 1 item shipped and I'll be charged my $99. Or maybe not be charged and just get it for free.

I just chatted with them:

Hi, how may I assist you today?

You —
so my order says 1 Item Shipped, 1 Item on Backorder

what does that mean?


Kat
What is your order number?

You —
XXXXXXX


Kat
THe free shipping promo in your order has "shipped" because it is a line item and "ships" automatically. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on NECA to send us the Raphael.

Sorry for any confusion

You -
so it is supposed to come out next week. by pre-ordering am i guaranteed one?


Kat
Yes, NECA said it is still expected this month.

Also, yes, so long as NECA does not short ship us. Which rarely every happens.

*ever

So shipped refers to free shipping and auto populates in orders that qualify? Okay. And backorder refers to preorder items awaiting manufacturer? Okay. So none of the terminology is what one might intuitively think.

Anyway, thanks for the info dude. I hope to have Raph in my hand by first week of March.

Thanks!

So the baby turtles will be part of an accessory pack. I might have to try and get that.

Love theses figures, they're massive though. Not fully feeling Mikey and Don, but Raph and Leo are great. Think I might need to pick up Leo too.

My NECA Raphs are now shipping. Hop on over and pick him up if you want him fast!

Shipping has been overhauled. Should be cheaper for everyone now. See the BST thread for details...


Anyway- this is the pose that my 2 brothers (R&M Joke) are taking:



This is a shot of a chunk of my Turtle display. Here you can see my Figuarts, NECA, Mondo, and Revoltech TMNT. PLease excuse the crappy lighting down here in my man cave/office.
