I wish they would release extra turtles heads as accessory in the future, like angry heads , smiling heads and neutral.
But its a quality issue as they say, well i dig that issue and would pay for it.

Agreed. That's the only thing holding these back from perfection, and I assume they plan to eventually rerelease them as "Ultimate" editions with extra portraits. If so, I'll buy them again, and with little or no resentment.

Meanwhile, NECA prioritizes screen accuracy to such an uncompromising extent that it wouldn't surprise me if they eventually release a laughing Donatello head wherein the face of the human actor is visible in the mouth!

I was going to call you crazy, but check this from the previous page. I'm surprised it's not getting more attention.

A few of my recent shots.



















Mikey is my least favorite of the four figures by quite a wide margin; they went a little too Cowabunga Carl on his expression. He suffers the most from the lack of alternate sculpts. I for one would like a more serious or neutral option for him.

Donatello is my favorite of the four, but man, Raph might be the best; he looks ridiculously realistic.

If they are doing Raph in Disguise then Casey is a shoe-in.

Agreed. SDCC2020 exclusive two-pack I reckon (with this new head that's doing the rounds; I reckon it went into production by mistake ).

GS has 25% off $100 purchase of IN STOCK items. You can get 5 of the movie turtles for $87 shipped (plus tax). If you don't have a set yet, now is your best chance!

So, my Michelangelo's nunchucks broke. I was twisting them around too much and the rope kinda broke out of the other 'chuck. Do you guys think I should just super-glue it? Or is there anywhere I can get a replacement?

I donít care for the nunchucks at all. They struck me as delicate at a glance so Iíve essentially never used them.

why were you twisting them? they are meant for pose and display not spinning effect

Got mine last Monday.

Probably one of the greatest TMNT looking figures ever but bending/poseability is very limited due to the straps on the elbows and knees. I don’t want to bend them all the way and ruin the straps.

I don't mind the articulation; it doesn't feel too limited to me. I think they struck a nice middle ground between articulation and aesthetic value.

Also, I visited the nearest GameStop yesterday (90 minutes away) and put ten bucks down on a preorder for Shredder and Splinter. Nice to avoid the shipping charges, and hopefully my order won't get canceled the way some online orders have.
