their logistics office is in Hillside NJ so when the initial order os made it ilists that but then the actual ship comes from Gardena which is close to the container port.

If they ship from UPS it always says 1 day ground from NJ to Boston but then it updates to a few days when it actually leaves from CA

They shipped Leo USPS priority this time and it arrived super fast since its air

Im talking about the labels on my boxes though. Unless they are spitting labels from a central office in NJ as a billable location and actually shipping from CA.

That's where I pre-ordered mine a few months ago, but now it looks like it would cost about the same (including shipping costs to Europe) when I buy him from eBay (Neca).
It usually takes about a couple of weeks since the day Neca ships to retailers, I'll try to contact BBTS CS to have more information. I had the same thought to try Ebay but I'll stick to BBTS, Their service is top notch, I got Don, Raph and Catwoman through them, you have to wait a bit longer but I got them in perfect conditions.

If it helps any- mine arrive tomorrow and I hope to print labels same day and drop off at USPS next day. I think BBTS will take longer just because they are larger.

Fantastic setup (end of video)! Lighthouses look awesome, so jealous. Luckily I can get them in Belgium because I'm living in the Netherlands. Expensive but worth it I think.

Review could be better in my opinion.

I believe Leo comes with an unbroken canister while Don came with a broken one. Also, Leo's shell is different. Really looking forward to receive Leo and place these masterpieces in the lighthouses!

Nope shell,biceps are different. Leo has veins on his legs and biceps that Don and Raph don't have.

So what's up with those 30 dollar eBay Don's? I figured we would have heard if someone actually received one, but I'm curious.

I got a Leo looking to the side variant. I think he is checking to see if all his accessories are there. Ultra rare.

Mine says expected Aug 2.

The page is still up, so that's a good sign.

Does Leo come with the piece of cardboard used to complete the movie poster, or has NECA done away with that entirely?

No all of the boxes have that insert.
