The customizer I mentioned in an earlier post is also making alternate head sculpts for these!

NICE! Nice nice nice nice nice.

NECA probably would've sold more of the alternate Raphs if they would've included a separate head. I would have double-dipped on for sure.

NECA-- you're leaving money on the table. Release a Raph accessory pack!

That's a pretty awesome costume job, looking forward to see it finished. I really hope we'll get another accessory pack from NECA where there's extra heads.

Man ... taking the heads off these things kind of worries me though. How easy are they to take off and on from the peg? I'd be concerned about doing really bad damage to it.

Be more concerned about hurting your wrist than damaging the figure.

Got in my Raph! Did a video review of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wd1K52bQHf0

Of note - mine likes to lean forward, and it's kinda bent the plastron out of shape. I talk about it explicitly at about the 3 minute mark. Anyone else have that issue?

Yep, same sort of issue with my Raphael I got last year. I donít know what it is ... but the Raphael figures have a tendency to want to topple forward more. I thought it may be a case of it be a little looser since he doesnít have the shoulder straps like Leonardo and Donatello ... but even Michelangelo doesnít fall forward nearly as much.

Itís not the end of the world ... but you just have to work with it a bit.

Mikey

Just got the Mikey figure. My first one. (He's awesome)
Have him doing the around the shoulder chuck pose,
How does everyone store the second chuck?
Do you actually put it in his belt? Just store it with the extra accessories?
I'd love to have it on him like he would in real life but don't want to stretch his belt out or worse yet break it. As I said this is my first figure of this quality.
Thanks

This is how mine are posed (in a temp location due to remodel-dont judge me). I think the Mikey looks good like this. 1 Chuck in hand, and 1 wrapped around the neck.

They can be put in his belt at the back sides of his shell. It was not easy to get them in at first. I had to slide one side in, Work it a little and then slide the other side of the same chuck in. I left mine in for a month or so. Now they do seem to have stretched and are a little easier to get back in. But I sure was afraid I was going to rip the belt or scratch him the first time. I don't think it hurts the figure that they stretched a little, but that is something to consider. I saw somebody made custom holders at one time.
