I'm pretty sure the leftover Spirit of Splinter boxes were sold as an add-on, and went quick. So they weren't guaranteed to everyone who ordered all the crates.

Pretty much. When ordering all three crates you had the option of just getting all three with the bonus figure or pay extra and get the Splinter figure as well.

Which reminds me, did anyone actually get it? I ordered two sets, one with and one without Splinter since I did get a Splinter figure the first time around. But when I contacted NECA about when it might be shipping, the response made it sound like I should have received it already.

My brother ordered the crates and he confirmed that he did order it with the Splinter figure. I'm going to double check with him today to make sure.

I honestly can't find information about this second run of splinter figures.

Has anyone in Europe/UK received the final box (cartoon) yet?
Mine is still not here, it was shipped about a month ago.

"Night of the Dark Turtle" was an elusive episode, as a child. I remember catching the end of the episode on tv and searching everywhere for it after, seeing as we had no internet back then. It was the episode where "a ninja turtle turned into Batman" and I began to think I dreamt it up.

This happened to an even greater degree when I first caught an episode of the "Red Sky" season at my grandparents place. I was blown away by the intro, the edgier designs, and darker atmosphere. I wondered where the hell that came from for a long time because I basically fell in love. By the time I found it on the internet, I didn't really care. It didn't seem dark and edgy anymore.

Can't wait to see someone customize the Dark Turtle into a true Batman turtle.

What's wrong with the three we already have?

Nothing. But I did mean one that looks accurate to an actual DC version of Batman. I just figure someone may well do it, and it would look cool.

I mean, the last one there is actually, canonically Michelangelo wearing Batman's cape and cowl as seen in a DC Comics produced movie. Seems pretty accurate to me.

Mine arrived this weekend, so hopefully it will arrive everywhere in Europe soon!

The inner tray inside Bebop's box is broken, unfortunately this is not the first time I'm disappointed with NECA's quality.

I wish they would just pack the figures better. I hold my breath each time I open the box. At least the boxes have been thicker. Just one sheet of bobble wrap could help a lot to stop some movement.

Got my bunny figures yesterday. Haven't opened them up yet but they seem to be ok. The package was in transit for almost a month.
