Yeah, I had to cut the roof top portion off, nothing else was cut though, just let the floor dangle below it into the 2nd floor

Had to fold the left and right panels in a different spot too, but all worked well

But what about the lights man; what about the lights! Looks awesome, and I want to do the same.

Theyre just 2 ikea dioder disc lights. But I think theyre discontinued

But any dim light strip should work too, I used multicolor because I felt the white on a multicolor not being a true white. Would look more like flourecent office lighting and more subtle

I still have not opened my set.

Started hunting Target for a second one. Need second Irma so bad.
I'd open that first one if you only want another just to get a spare Irma. I thought I would want two so I could display her mutated form and her regular form, but she's so boring as far as posing goes that I'm fine with not displaying her in rat form. Her skirt just doesn't really let her use her legs much at all. I'm left wishing that NECA had gone the Super7 route and gave us an optional soft goods skirt for more dynamic posing. Plus, I bet she gets another release (like Vernon) with new portraits and maybe other modifications that will make having two from this set seem redundant. There's a 0% chance as far as I'm concerned she remains exclusive to this set.

Well, main reason I haven't opened is I need to open the box with my new storage containers so I have somewhere to put the accessories, but haven't made the room yet. That, and I just hate having to cut all those ties.

I opened up my channel 6 pack last night and followed that up the Wingnut & Screwloose/Dirtbag & Groundchuck packs as well (not to mention the entirety of AoA wave 2 and the Mafex TNBA Batman. I didn’t have much of a chance to check the figures out because opening them all took about 4 hours and after all of that I just wanted to clean everything up and put them away. So perhaps by this weekend I’ll give them all a closer look.

So has anyone else received a shipping notice from NECA and it states on the fedex website “Estimated delivery date: Pending The delivery date may be updated when FedEx receives the package”.

I got this shipping notice last week and it isn’t changing.

Also, I still haven’t found Dirtbag and Groundchuck. I did see another Wingnut and Screwloose but I already have them.

So you spent 4 hours opening them up and then putting them back in?

I put them in grocery bags for now. I just recently moved but I haven’t been able to find any display cases yet for any of my figures so I have to make due with shopping bags

Yeah, you're right. I just wanted it to be the same guy who does those short reviews. Thank you though.

I got my Channel 6 set on Saturday right before I left for work for the day. I haven't had a chance to open it yet, but will get into it all tomorrow.

I stopped into a Target today and saw this:
ImageTarget TMNT by lionpride75, on Flickr

There was:
1 Mondo Gecko
4 Muckman
1 Chrome Dome
5 of the second frog sets
1 Wingnut & Screwloose
1 Dirtbag & Groundchuck

This is the most TMNT product I've seen at one store at one time.

I had told myself that if I saw Mondo in store I would grab him, but I wasn't ordering him online or actively hunting for him. That said, he left the store with me.

I just got my set today. After being delayed to the next day since f***ing Friday.

Also really wish I could've gotten that diorama. :|

So after taking a good hard look at my figures from the channel six sets and the most recent 2-packs, I’ve decided to go back and rewatch the tv show starting tomorrow. And this time with a little more intent. I’m now on a fact finding mission because I have no idea who Wingnut and Screwloose even are. And the same thing can be said for the Triceratons, Dirtbag and Groundchuck and hell, even Were- Irma and Rat Vernon are a mystery to me. So I’m gonna go back and watch the series and this time I’m not going to stop until all of the characters that I have in plastic have been formally introduced on the show.
