The figures are cooler than the boxes. Donnie is getting released from his cardboard prison the second he arrives on my doorstep. I consider packaging for collectibles to be good for two things-- safe transportation and collecting dust in my attic.

Actually, I wonder why they even bother with packaging for this stuff. It's not like it's competing for your attention on a retail shelf. Put that cost towards the product.

It's like fine cuisine it has to appeal to the consumer I will be keeping mine in their package and I may get a second to open but have not decided yet

My bad I thought you were referring to something different altogether. These figures are pretty sweet

I just got solicitations for Raphael. Shipping date is "Feburary" right now THIS IS ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE

I will order 2 cases again. Still want to see Donny and see how hard it will be to ship these things.

From the solicitation:

----------------------
NECA's second 1/4 scale action figure from the
1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is the loner Raphael.

Of all the Turtles, he struggles the most with anger issues and frequently butts heads with Leonardo. Raphael stands 16.5" tall and features 30 points of articulation, including double elbow joints, to fully showcase his mastery of the martial arts.

The figure is highly detailed and entirely accurate to the movie, and comes with sai accessories, a slice of pizza (of course) and interchangeable hands.


Stands 16.5" tall!
30 points of articulation including double elbows!
Interchangeable hands!
Sais and Pizza accessories!
----------------------
There are a ton of pics here are a few: (I cant post pics inline from where I am)

Thanks those are awesome pics I can tell you from experience that teh Turtles are gonna be pretty difficult to ship as they are 1/4 so you will need some very big sized boxes.

Thats why I am doing small quantities. Only 2 cases and an awesome price point should move these at conventions if they are heavy.

Confirming: http://necaonline.com/events/2016-12/

Could be very close call having Donnie in hand still this year, personal estimate is jan to be honest, no matter how much I like it.

Thanks for the update. I have been checking that calendar often looking for him but now he's there I can plan accordingly. I bet calendars.com will be the last to receive these so I'll probably be looking at next year

Just wondering, did anyone else order Donnie from Calendars.com?
My order status still says 'pending', the product description says 'out of stock'.

Starting to doubt that they will ship.

I think it's out of stock because they sold through their alottment and pending because it hasn't been released yet.

I'll wait and see what happens once other stores start shipping.

I do hope they come through as it was a good price including international shipping.
