While I noticed his "turtleneck" was purple in the box art, I hope that's not ALL the purple he's getting otherwise it's not that obvious to ID him. Wondering how they'll work the bo staff in.
I think covering his whole head in purple bandages would've been too much. That said, all the others have their knee and elbow pads in their colors, so I assume Don will too.
They do not. They all have the leather elbow and knee pads like the movie figures.
Ha, so they do. When you're right, you're right. My mistake, faulty memory, etc. I was remembering them as muted versions of their individual colors, but nope!

Maybe they will have a translucent head with just the purple bandana floating

That would make the most sense. Or have a partially torn away set of bandages around a translucent head.

If he comes with an alternate head. I know mummy Mikey has one but Raph and Leo have just one.

Well, April also comes with two, and here with Donnie two would make sense.
I wonder if on the final they will incorporate the mask/bandana more into the bandages. Maybe the tails hanging out the back.
This one has me most excited for full figure reveal. Being the best Turtle and all...

Some pics of Leo in this thread plus close-ups on the packaging. It would appear the only unrevealed character is Splinter possibly as Van Helsing.

Looks fantastic, I personally like him more than Frankenraph.

Just got my Hunchback Leo from Cc.123 Store (Aliexpress seller), just to put your mind at ease in case you ordered from him:

- Packaging was top-notch, probably one of the best packaged items I ever received. Came in one of those plastic air bag containers, not a single dent in the box.
- Ordered May 19, shipped May 23 and received it today (May 31). I live in Belgium, delivery times will probably differ depending on where you live.
- Not that I had any doubt about this but this is a 100% genuine NECA product.

As for Leo: probably still an unpopular opinion but I like him quite a bit more than Raph. Much more options for posing, comes with some great accessories. Still a bit weird that these are priced the same since he comes with so much more stuff (not complaining though).

I can see how you would prefer Leo as the Hunchback to the FrankenRaph. Ignoring we are talking about the best turtle, I do think there's a bit more creativity baked into that figure. The storage shell alone is pretty cool. I just have zero affection for the monster here so I decided to pass, but for what it is, I think it looks good (same with Raph).

Oh my God look at his little glasses, he's so adorable. It's like Runaway Ralph but a vampire hunter.

Splinter is a maybe for me.

Looks neat. Not sure how deep I want to go in this line, but so far I am all in.

Seems to me this unofficially confirms Shredder as Dracula? I don't want to judge it based on a teaser, but this one looks like the most boring of the bunch so far since it just looks like the existing movie Splinter with some clothes added on. Maybe there will be more to it when it gets fully revealed at a later date.
