I don't usually keep up with or buy figures, but these were too damn perfect to miss out on. My brothers and I each ordered ourselves the 4 Turtles from Gamestop, and the next day my sister who isn't really into the TMNT like we are did too. Really weird, but these things are a goddamn work of art so I don't blame her. Really surprised they've been taking orders for days. Thought they'd be gone quickly. Mine should be arriving today or Monday. Easily gonna be one of my most prized items in my collection.

I am surprised they are still up as well. I do have a feeling that this might be it in the US once they are gone though.

Do you guys think they'll put up individuals though? I have my Leo I pre-ordered, but I still need the other three...

The new NECA turtles apparently have new head sculpts for Mikey and Raph. Mikey is more smiley and Raph has a more open mouth with gritting teeth. Mikey's nunchucks also now have bendy wire instead of the rope/glue

Okay... so how am I going to get my hands on these.

Popcultcha are great, but I don't think I can ask them to go through their stock looking for variants.

no that would be the smart thing to do. Neca didn't think that maybe some of us don't have the almost 100 for the bundle.

These are coming out in the UK in Nov, I wonder if the new face sculpts are for the UK/EU release?

Thanks for that. I wonder whether it's safe to assume any re-stock will be the updated sculpts.

When the 1:4 Donatello was restocked I asked if it was the updated paint scheme (with spots on the snout), but when they checked their stock was told that was it wasn't.

Might just have to resign myself to ebay and actual photos for these two.

Anyone else see the response to an enquiry to Neca posted in Twitter that the Raph and Mikey are "factory errors" rather than new sculpts?

Obviously the running change to the chucks is a thing.

The originals were error, or the new ones?
How do you "factory error" extra wide mouths with extra tooth sculpting onto a figure?

I’m not digging those new head sculpts for Raph and Mikey at all. So grateful I have the originals from SDCC plus the 1/4 ones. If they were going to do a new head sculpt, they could’ve at least done a closed mouth version for Mikey. I think that would’ve looked better. The original scowl on Ralph looks so much better.

I generally agree.

The original Raph sculpt is damn near perfect, but the new one is pretty cool too. I haven't loved either of Mikey's head sculpts. Both look a little too "crazy" for me. Maybe it's the eyes though.

My turtles arrived Monday. Was scared as sh*t getting them out of the box and trying to move their stiff ass joints. My Raph's head came off pretty easily after some careful and slight movement. I stuck it right back on and have been very careful about moving his head. Ran them all through hot water to loosen their joints to some solid results, but they still feel scary to mess around with. They look really amazing though and they've definitely become some of my favorite items in my collection.

My set arrived today. I also have the new sculpts and Mikey's chucks have the wire. I'm pretty happy I have the SDCC, original GS release, now these, and the qtr scale
