Raph is not showing up on the TRU website right now. That is weird to me considering he showed up all day yesterday.

He sold out again. For some reason these stop appearing when they are sold out on TRU. If you ordered him search the item number in your order and he should appear. At least that's how it was for me. I ordered him one day. Couldn't find him the next unless I searched the item number from my order. the result was I got his product page but it showed sold out. Was like that with Donnie too.

I hope this means new waves of Raph are getting out there.

I don't see how it sold out when it couldn't even be added to a shopping cart.

It's like TRU found out that inventory/stock was going to be an issue and delisted it. The last bit is speculation on my part.

These might help

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...6&sku=25270409

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...6&sku=23939438

I ordered mine back in February. I ordered in the morning. I couldn't find them in searches by Afternoon of the same day in Raph's case. I did notice that searching the item number isn't working now either. The other thing I noticed is there's no place to sign up for email notice of new stock. There was before. That's how I found out Donnie was back in stock before. So who knows what they are doing.

My pre-orders for Leo are now on the SpaceMonkeyToys.com
LIMITED quantities.

NO ONE ships these or gets them to you faster. I routinely beat EE and BBTS and definitely beat local comic shops.

More details on B/S/T thread

I almost wonder if NECA couldn't give them an idea regarding quantity and so they are waiting until closer to June to make it available for order. I've seen stuff go up and then get taken down or disappear before. This happens with the Playmates figures and Mega Bloks sets quite often actually.

Wow, is Ralph already sold out everywhere?

Where is the best place to buy these guys? I'd love to spend $100 or less on each.

Thanks for any tips.

You won't find these for $100 or less unless you order from BBTS or EE (means you're willing to wait a month or so for them).

I ordered mine from EE in late February and my card still hasn't been charged for them.

Appreciate the quick reply.

Is there any guarantee the wait will only be a month or so?
You know how some websites will fudge the time just so they can get you to order.

No. I've called EE twice and there's still no guarantee of a time frame. All they can guarantee is that they'll get them eventually.

I ordered three for sale on eBay before I knew this. I've had to buy one at mark up on there to appease an angry buyer in Russia who was demanding a refund only two days after ordering from me. I guess he's really mad now, considering it has been a month.

The second person to buy one from me started to rip me a new one for not updating her but the listing said that it was a pre-order when she ordered it from me, and it turned out her daughter knew it was a pre-order when she told her mom to purchase it. I managed to sell them a Don and Leo as well.

Best place is to get them from me I only have one Leo left, but I increased my order again since my pre-orders sold out so fast. No one will get them to you faster...if you are in the US that is.

Guys and gals, I am so torn between Leonardo and Raphael, it's not even funny.

I considered getting both, but budget and space issues killed that pretty quickly.

I wish someone could decide for me.

They are both gorgeous. Don't know how to help you.

I am just going for all of them and hoping I don't lose my job anytime soon.

I'm waiting on the EE ones, apparently indefinitely and with no guarantee they will ever truly show up (?), because $100 USD plus shipping to Canada is about all I can stomach.

I'd go with Raph; having the Turtle with the red bandana as your lone Turtle is sensible, added to which his weapons seem less likely to break.

Appreciated hearing thoughts from each of you.

That's a good reason to go with Raphael.
His face has so much character and emotion in it, which I also love.

Leonardo looks great in his own right too.

It's amazing how alive their eyes look. Agreed about the emotion with Raph.

I haven't seen any close up video reviews of Leo yet (as he's not out obviously) so it's hard to know exactly how he compares.

Hadn't realized that the Leo pre-order was up and that I never pre-ordered Raph... Swung by bbts and placed my order for both as Don is probably my favorite non-art purchase I've made in years.
