I finally got my set last week and haven't really noticed any QC issues at all, other than the loose joints on the Turtles legs that seem to be common to most people. Me being in Spain, it would have been a real pain to ask for replacements, so I'm very happy that I got so lucky.

The set is awesome, by the way. I hope NECA can continue to do great things with the franchise for a very long time.

Any suggestions on which sorts of stands to use for the turtles specifically?

The peg holes are pretty standard so any 6" figure stand works, NECA also sells their own stands

Hope so. I contacted them back on 8/1, at which point my issue was "added to the log." (And this isn't an issue of minor paint slop...they literally gave me two left feet.)

At this point, I'm just assuming I'm not getting a replacement part. Otherwise, it's an indefinite wait of frustration.

NECA's customer service has been really disappointing/non-existent, but that's like saying the sky is bluish in color.

Just found one available over here. Mind you, I have t been looking long !!!
I think this set is the best looking of any Turtles set released so far. The case is just awesome. Really looking forward to adding this set to the collection. And, I hope it doesnít take too long to arrive.

I'm not sure how but they are up for pre-order in Australia.

Spenno though, but I guess I can officially stop bitching.

You know what, that's not a bad price at all, 250Ä with shipping costs included is a great price for these tempting tempting...

Yup. Import duties are the real add ons.
Ok for the Ozzies!!!
Iím paying slightly more than their price with the customs and postage factored in.

Oh no I don't, but Customs here in Portugal are really hit or miss, most of the times I don't pay anything, the packages just waltz right through

But yeah, even with those they're not a bad deal, although I might wait to see what the good people of China intend to do with these. (Hey, I'm sorry guys, but if they can't provide everyone with the same kind of service I'll have to relly on alternate methods... ).

Either way I can live without these ones, I have the Figuarts Turtles already so these are kinda redundant, although I would love to get them anyway.

Nothing yet.
All the NECA ass-kissers should watch this video Also I think anyone waiting for replacement parts should give this a look.
Spoiler:
Prepare to be pissed

NECA has a lot of issues but this dude is coming off like a douche bag. He's 30 something and got his boxers in a knot over Randy not liking the same movies as him. You're gonna say you're an adult who can accept a difference of opinion but then you go & make a huge fuss in your video, & claim he insulted all the buyers by giving his opinion on something?

He makes plenty of fair points about the products & stuff but it seems like he only made this video to attack Randy.

Oops, I forgot for a moment that the people of today are just fine getting their info from biased sources.

Living in the EU you have to pay taxes and fee if you buy something from a non-EU country. VAT (+/- 20%) + costums (depends on the value) + handling fee.

Sometimes you are lucky an the package slips through the system.
