    Picked this up today lurking gram comments on some heavy metal icon fig. A response to someone complaining about their Japanese Wrestling figs.

    As much as I love wrestling and NJPW I am glad I decided not to bother with Super7's NJPW figures. Some of them looked nice enough but the price, delays and subpar articulation were the deal breaker. Not even getting into their QC history.
    It's a shame as their Andre figure was pretty cool looking.

    It feels like it has taken forever. Here's to hoping everything is perfect!

    Someone reported that the paint do scrape off easily in TMNT Raphael isn't a good sign.

    TMNT Raphael is quite a mess.
    Aside from the poor articulation and some questionable design choices, a video review also said it felt very hollow and cheap.
    Also the joints were very loose.
    Some of his sais we're also very warped...even on the weapons rack.
    Even his head looks slightly too big.

    I only saw one review, by some guy named dragonsoul. Fig looked fine, aside from the teeth sculpt had an issue and one of the sais had a slight bend. He didn't mention any paint issues at all and the joints looked maybe too stiff rather than too loose. I'm holding out hope it was more of a bum batch than an overall production quality issue.

    I don't know why some people complain about the joints, we knew exactly what they were doing. Ultimates lines are made to fit with other Classics lines. Even so they improved the MOTUC joints.

    Aside from them being loose people complained with the range of the joint.
    Speaking of joints it appears their wrestling figures will not have any thigh joints.

    How long are we expected to wait for this line? I know Covid has messed up a lot of plans, but it feels like we've been waiting forever.

    Brian said in the Pixel Dan vid from Sat that the first wave is about 2 weeks out from reaching the port.

    Yes! They look superb. I can't believe I'm this excited for re-releases, I must have TCat fever.

    Someone on the he-man board was saying Panthro colors looked off(?) but they look fine to me. Hands look like they might be light (but that could be lighting)? That's all I can find after scrutinizing. Hopefully the ear isn't getting bent like the MattyCo. Anyway, glad these and the ReAction figs are on the way.

    Panthro's trunks are the wrong colour.

    Right, that was what they said. Is that first hand or based on the pic or from some discussion to which you can link me?

    They do appear to be the wrong color. Dag nab it.

    I don’t see it. It may just be the light. Let’s wait until we see ToyBro’s review.

    I mean, it’s definitely looking lighter than the belt. I’m just really hoping it’s lighting. Really, reallllly hoping.

    Any chance these could be samples before the final production? Since the figures are supposedly still “on the boat?”

    One of Panthros hands looks discolored and the other picture posted of LionO on that account has me a little concerned...

    Just based on the picture.
    It's not lighting, it's the same colour as the shoulder straps.
    It's not lighting. The trunks should be the same darker blue as the bely, not the same as the straps.
