I also took a pic of one of my sais used in the first movie to compare with the neca version. They matched the leather wrap pretty identical but they are missing the metal showing on the prongs.
Dude! You have Raph's screen-used sais?!

That's freaking amazing!

Yes, I have the same issue with mine. I've contacted NECA CS, they sent me a link to youtube where they show how to fix loose joints using furnitures polish, but to fix this one you have to separate the front shell first , so, unless you're an expert in this kind of operation, I suggest you not to do it. Then mine is not that bad, I can keep it in erect position lowering the belt so that the front shell is a little more tight.

Yeah, I know I ordered mine like 20 minutes (or even less) after they went on sale on Amazon. I contacted NECA since it seemed like so many people were getting theirs and I think it had a lot to do with shipping to region. Seems like a lot of people in the western region got Raph quicker as I'm in the midwest and it looks like he's out for delivery today. So I would check the tracking today and see if he'll be there.

I CANNOT WAIT!!!

My Raphs are set to arrive tomorrow if you still need them. I can get them to you pretty cheap if you are in the Midwest, and can do cash pickup in the St. Louis area.

I always sell these for 100+shipping. The shipping costs vary wildly though. Midwest shipping has been as low as $11, but the coasts have been as high as $60.

I finally settled on a pose for Raph after a few days of changing

the picture is low light and blurry on purpose to make it look like a still from the movie

Finally got Raphael in today and I love it! Gonna see myself posing this guy around for awhile for sure.

However, has anyone else noticed has loose the ab crunch is on this guy? I thought Donnie was a little loose and I know I read some people were having issues but it seems like Raph just falls on his front shell way too easy compared to Don.

That hasn't distracted me from loving him though and with Raph being my favorite I've been pumped on finally having it in my possession.

I actually have both pairs from part 1 and part 2.

Including Leo's katanas. There's a thread in the movie section showing my props.

Coro's are due in tomorrow, so I don't see why BBTS wouldn't be getting their orders around the same time. Probably get the email shipping notice in the next 3 days I'm thinking.

Both me and BBTS are in the midwest. I ordered direct from NECA as soon as possible, so this theory seems to hold water to me. I am unsure why we got them so slow this time around. It seemed like I had Donny before NECA put their eBay page up last time around. I think Toy Fair might have slowed a lot of things down in NECA land.
