QC Issues
Internal Orange box corner smashed. External box fine.
More rattling parts in box
Paint issues on the following parts:
Orange head-paint issue on eyes
Nunchucks- silver paint on both nunchuck handles where the brown wood is
Back of turtle- paint bleed from dark green shell to the brown belt.
Others that I am just too bored to type out...

Positives
Why on earth has no one else ever used flexible rubber for the nunchucks before?!?
Material change for Red head was a GREAT change...when will we get replacement Leo heads? Flexible rubber solved 100% of all fitment issues
Contact support@mondotees.com and they'll take care of you.

I got my Mikey yesterday in perfect condition. Very happy with him.

Yes, he is awesome!! They fixed the head issue, which was annoying on the other two.

Also, my Donnie box was damaged and MONDO gladly sent me a brand new box so def contact their customer support if you have any issues as it's top notch.

this is great to hear. I'll more then likely get these. As I said in a previous post, I love the mirage look and the fact that we don't get stuff from that era often just makes me want these more.

I was just rearranging all my figures and I noticed the mondo figures share the same exact faces as the NECA turtles. You'd think they'd change it up abit.

Not my first rodeo...I've done this with all 3 turtles that have been released. I am literally done with Mondo after this line is complete.

What's all this about flexible 'chucks? When did flexible rubber, the first of all materials to go to crap over time, become a desirable feature on a "high end" figure?

It's weird to hear the word "high end" associated with MONDO. anyways. I think in this case wood would make a better case than soft rubber.

So I just got my replacement Mikey...and its even worse than last time. This is getting stupid. At this point I am not buying anymore MONDO products...what an utter disappointment. Screw this company...

Orange box smashed inside a pristine shipping box, and a giant black spot on the nose of the orange head. This means they arent even looking at the product before they ship this crap. Couldnt even bother to open the window box on a replacement shipment for someone that had a bad one to begin with.

Screw MONDO

I dont believe its Mondo but who makes the product for them. In my experience working at a production plant at the end of the line they should have an auditor to look the product over and inspect for defects if any are foumd they are discarded. Sounds to me like someone is sleeping on the job and allowed bad product through. Now maybe Mondo should look them over themselves before they ship but that could be time consuming when somebody else should have done their job

I dont blame though for 150 you should be getting a damn near perfect figure
