Because I'm too scared to mod/custom the figure... I just pulled the head slightly up off the neck peg. Only adds 2mm height, but the longer neck makes him look slightly less like a child, more teenage.

It's barely worth doing But it is a slight improvement

My hope is that they're in full honor guard gear instead of only just wearing the helmets like the VHS was. I know that's usually NECA's gimmick with the four-pack to model after the VHS box art ... but maybe for this one, they can go the movie poster route with them on the horses. Haha.

I think you could see honor guard GEAR in the photo next to the helmets as well.
Ah so they are planning on it. I say I won’t get them now, but I might cave in when the time comes. Still been on the fence about the Shells Tour turtles. Wasn’t a fan of those designs, but the figures look good for what they are.

I’m too scared too even open my NECA movie figures, cause I’m afraid of accidentally snapping the joints! After my toon Bebop leg joint snapped by me trying to pose it. I hear there’s some way to heat up the joints and loosen them so it’s not so brittle. Gotta do some more research on that before I open mine, although they look so grand in the movie packaging, almost wanna just leave them in package.

As for Danny, even swapping his head to a taller body wouldn’t work, cause the head would look to small. Maybe if someone has a 3D printer they could enlarge the whole figure just a bit so he scales better. I would attempt some kind of mod or custom if I ever have time for it.
