Wow. I wonder what the reasoning is behind that...

I don't know if it's already been said, but these aren't fresh interpretations at all. They're based off the Dave Rapoza fan art drawings that everyone has already seen.

I just checked and mine is too...odd-they must have sent my tracking number late.

Hopefully this will arrive mint and make up for my Mondo Donny fiasco

I went to pick mine up from DHL.

I am really happy with the quality, putting Leo on the sewer pipe was a little awkward because of the way the peg is shaped.

I especially like the swords - they are made of metal. Quality feels good.

It seems a little underwhelming. The first turtle is all haunched over looks lonely sitting by himself next to 3 NECA brothers, 4 figuarts counterparts, and Mondo Leo...he needs some brothers!
I feel like the other 3 will be more impressive in statue form due to pose and size.

Packaging from sideshow was INSANELY good!

Oh yeah the packaging was very well donE.

I completely agree with the hunched over look, definitely not the strongest pose of the four. I guess appropriate for the leader to take charge.

I think Im looking forward to Mikey most in this line. I love his look. The Donny is also very well done

I'm loving Leo but I had a hell of a time getting him all the way down on his base. The peg is really difficult to cram into the knee without fear of breaking the model. After 5 or 6 times of putting him together and taking him apart it's been a bit better but I still can't get his feet all the way down to actually touch the base. Anyone else have trouble with that?

Mine does not have this issue. Both feet are touching their bases.

I'm applying quite a lot of pressure and still I'm about 3/16" shy of the feet on the base. Guess I just need to keep on working on it. I had no issues with the rest of the pieces. The scabbards were a little bit of a pain, but with a little force they went in fine.

This is what mine looks like. I focused the images on the knee where the peg is. See if you have a similar gaps...

FYI I did not have to push it down at all. I had to rotate the knee a bit since its a square in there.

Oh! That's actually quite helpful. Mine is quite similar. Maybe just a bit worse, but that does seem to be roughly the same issue I am having.Even to get it that close took a bit of work. i was afraid of accidentally snapping his belt/sash, but it looks like the foot on yours is off the base a little bit as well. I guess it's normal then. Thank you for that.

I assume you mean the front knee, the front foot (other leg) is resting on the higher portion of the pipe and the rear foot toe is off the pipe but the middle part of the foot is fully resting on the pipe. There are 3 full points of contact.

Yes sir. The knee looks similar to yours but each foot is just off the base by a small amount. I see where they are supposed to rest. The bump out on the foot shows how is should sit along the lip of the pipe on the front facing foot. Anyhow i think it will just take a little breaking in to get him all the way down sitting flush.
