    well my thought process is if there's nothing back there, just to shave the bandana hump off and repaint, i just have never liked that giant yellow eye patch, it's why i was 2nd guessing getting this set espc when i'm really only in it for Slash, love me some Turtle figures, crocs not so much outside of Killer Croc

    I got my loot crate shipping e-mail, if I ordered 2 crates are they advanced enough to ship them in the same order?

    How does Leatherhead's neck work, does it have any up and down or side to side?

    Are you thinking about painting in an eye where the yellow patch currently is?

    i think i'm bite for Metalhead on ebay at $55ish, i look at whatever Neca does will look something like this $30+tax+$20s&h puts it at $55ish for an instore item that cost $30-35 depending on your state tax so yeah wait and give Neca $20 bucks or get it now for $20 bucks extra, i've seen everything at least once besides him and all the recently released stuff but i've spend prob realistically $150 in gas doing checks that i write off on being productive uses of gas instead of just cursing and puffing on black&milds so IDK

    oh as if it was like a magnifying glass? that's not a bad idea and prob easier to pull off, i was thinking just shaving done the hump and redoing the yellow part smaller if there's no eye back there

    It has up and down (decent amount of down...just a little bit of up) but it has very little side to side rotation or tilt. His adam's apple really hinders those movements.

    I actually wasn't thinking magnifying glass...but that sounds like a funny idea. Maybe have a little chain attached to it like a monocle or something...or one of those things an olde timey jeweler wears. Or some kind of crazy steampunk shit:

    I have to report what I believe to be only my second sighting ever of any of these NECA toon TMNT figures, wave 1 up until now.

    Funny enough, I saw a Casey Jones/Foot Soldier and 2 of the Slash/Leatherhead 2packs today at Target. The problem was that they were in another guy's basket.

    I have mine already accounted for on preorder, but it was nice to see them in stores.

    My local Target has been sitting on the last two Krang/Shredder sets for a hot minute. I had momentary excitement at seeing a new, third box the other day, but it was only Krang/Donatello. Funny that Wave 1 can show up, but no B&R and beyond.

    Is Leatherhead's ankle joint not supposed to be a peach color? I thought it would be the same color as his pants but it's not :/ Also my Slash had stupidly stuck elbow joints and a wrist peg. Luckily I have bought enough Neca products to know that you have to hot water it!

    My Leatherhead's legs, ankles and feet are all purple/blue...not sure if any parts are peach colored plastic beneath the paint, though. I had to hot water Leatherhead's gripping hand in order to soften it enough to get it around the grip of his ketchup rifle. Overall, most of the joints on mine have been decent...a little tight in the elbows, but they loosened up somewhat after working them around. I used some silicone oil on Leatherhead's elbows, though, just in case.

    Thanks for the info. I might need a replacement Leatherhead then if I can find another. It is for sure not whatever color his pants is! :/

    Yeah same here! All that’s left for me are Splinter, Android Krang and Usagi!

    I saw on another board (can’t recall which board - my apologies) that Leatherhead’s legs are casted in flesh coloured plastic?

    If the picture is real...that’s a weird decision by Neca to me.

    Man, that’s a bummer. If I were you, I think I’d just paint those parts or use a permanent marker or something to color them in.

    So I found a few Casey's on Sunday, at a Target 90 minutes away from my house. Bought one, very excited. Took it hope and opened it. Strap on the bag broke. I was pretty bummed about it Today, wondering what I should do.

    Today, I decided F it, I was gonna go back and find this thing. I went back out there... only to be crushed when all of the Caseys were gone. On the way home I decided to stop at one last Target... and found my prize. Now he has a rightful spot in my collection.

    Oh man, I feel your pain.. I’m particular about paint jobs...however, the good news is that its black - easy touch up.

    Yeah, I agree with your suggestion. I would do the same too.

    May I know how you broke Casey’s bag?
