Get a peek at what may be the final designs for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Jan. 29, 2014by: Paul Shirey

UPDATE: We've been asked by the studio to take down the previous images, but in their wake we've found another new image that's currently up at a toy expo (courtesy of CBM). So, while the previous pics are down, here's a slice of marketing art to tide you over. I'm betting we'll be seeing some Turtles in motion very soon...

Well, now, this could be quite promising.

After a series of setbacks, delays, frown-inducing rumors, and a bad Halloween costume from the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES reboot, there may be cause to get a little excited. From producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman, the reboot was always going to be an uphill battle, especially with characters that have grown with a die-hard fanbase that holds the canon as close to their hearts as STAR WARS. A series of images displaying model molds and concept art seemingly from the reboot have begun filtering throughout the net from numerous sources and they look...exceptionally promising. From the signature foursome of Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo, and Raphael to the main baddie, The Shredder, we now have a look at the "reinvented" hereoes in a half shell and they may well surprise you.

Take a look:

Everyone is going to have an opinion on these, no doubt. Some will champion them, some will loathe them, and some will make a voodoo doll of Michael Bay and break out the needles. For me, these designs look great. I fully expected something much cheesier and granted we still haven't seen these "in action," but the designs themselves look well thought out and perfectly fitting. I need to see more to be completely won over, but this looks like an edgier take on the TMNT without sacrificing their identities and I'm down with it.  As much as I enjoyed the live-action flicks of the '90's I don't want to see them rehashed and this appeases me that it won't be the case. But, that's just me. Let's hear what YOU'VE got on this...

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES kicks into theaters on August 8, 2014.

I hate writing something off that I havent seen yet. But I just cant get excited for this. I was a big TMNT fan as a kid, and would love a good, modern adaptation. It just seems like another studio money grabbing attempt at something that we recognize from our childhood. And these things dont have a great track record.

They all look awesome except for Michelangelo, he looks like the girl gremlin from Gremlins: The New Batch. Mike aside, I'm totally stoked for this movie now.

Okay the models looked great these look terrible, is Mike a girl for Christs sake! And looks like Bey is back to piling on the stereotypes again. Really do you have to have glasses to be smart or a doo rag to be tough, its going to be much worse in the final film I am sure. Its bad enough they have colored bandanas, I am sure people could tell them apart without them, they are just assuming we are all racist, that we need some way to tell them apart. sheesh.

To be honest...

I grew up with TMNT and love,the first two films. I always watch them back to back because it's like one long movie. I'm very neutral with everything I'm seeing except I like the Shredder a bit. I don't expect this movie to raise the bar when it come to TMNT , but I'll be honest all I'm looking forward to is watching the turtles have an awesome 20 to 30 min fight scene with the Shredder. Everything else I can let go of because I'm not expecting an amazing story, but as long as we get that

WTF? Why do they have creepy large overly pronounced lips!? They're fucking turtles, turtles don't have lips. They have lips, and it makes them look creepy as shit. Raphael looks downright terrifying. Is this a horror movie? I guess Donatello is the only one that looks like a turtle and not a roid raging lip smacking monster.

Shocker... people hate this.

C'mon now. Why must we be TOO predictable? I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say I actually really dig their design and I think this flick has the potential to be really fun and entertaining. It's too easy to hate and at some point it becomes a chore and a choice because one thinks they SHOULD hate on things like this.
(And I am actually a total TMNT purist. I consider the 1990 film to be one of the best comic book films, period.)

Kinda interesting. Looks pretty brutal. Also bizarre, but then they are mutants...I liked the japanese animated movie of a few years back. In spite of the badass action, the turtles had nice lumpy simple designs, but then the humans they interacted with had the same cartoonish look.
I just hope the tone is a brutal as the comics are. Or as close as possible while still being fun and kid friendly.

Updated picture. I rest my case.
It's also interesting to see how they cleverly covered all the tattoos on them, except for on on Leo. I guess they are still on the fence about whether or not to keep those. They could also loose the stereotypical tape on the "nerd's" glasses.

The thing about Michael Bay is...

Yeah! It always LOOKS cool. But the story... that is the biggest part of the movie. I hope the story is as fun, entertaining, semi-silly, and full of TMNT classic references as my childhood remembers.
I love the look (shredder is a bit off), but this movie better have pizza, cowabunga, and a kick ass Casey Jones with a dimwitted attitude. Luckily the image of a pizza couch was seen too.

I like how ppl are hating on this movie already. Do ppl realize that the cartoon was a totally different tone than the comic source? Do ppl realize that the turtles only used the weapons one time in the 2nd movie? Do ppl even remember the third movie? So it's not like Bay could do worse, so calm the F down ppl. Btw I like the designs. Shredder looks awesome. Also here's something for the haters to hate on....does Raf have a doo-rag on?!

Why?

It seems silly to me that they are trying to extrapolate their little quirks into their designs. Growing up, I had no problem understanding that Donatello was the brains, that Mikey was a fun surfer type. Do we really need these things plastered on the turtles themselves? To me, it screams that the writing is so lazy that they can't get these traits across otherwise.

I liked the new designs. The original movies kept that cartoonish charm that worked for the 80's, and in my opinion, hold up even today....mostly. The new designs give them a more real world likeness I suppose but my only complaint is their size. I think the shells are too big *see trenchcoat behind the scenes pics online* and they really look much older than teenagers. I would have preferred a more sleeker design, more compact to show agility. Ralph looking like a brute I can believe. The

Shredders mask looks a bit much but I REALLY hope they go the 2003 route with Utroms.
Either way, I will most certainly give this movie the benefit of the doubt and see it opening weekend. Here's hoping it doesn't disappoint.

Looks like the Turtles to me.
Not sure how Shredder's supposed to fight in that get-up, but it would definitely hurt to punch him.
The turtles were always interested in a combination of modern/surfer culture and traditional martial arts beliefs so I don't see any reason why one or more of them wouldn't have tattoos. Sometimes people seem to forget that to a degree they were fun-loving teenagers - they probably would want to make visual statements about themselves and customise their

You know these don't look too bad. I am getting used to them already. I don't think the designs were the big issue, I think the story elements and their origin was what the fans were tense about. We will have to see when it comes out how it all works.

Have zero interest in this but am finding the designs pretty cool. Maybe a bit too muscle-bound though.

I'll be absolutely shocked if the trailers make me want to see it in a theater.

My only first positive reaction is that they did justice to the characters in terms of personality. "Samurai/warrior"-looking Leo, "high tech gear/ genius"-looking Donny, "sportive dude"-looking Mikey and "tough guy"-looking Raph. I like their body shape and their faces,but i want to see them in action and having expressions for a better judgement. But for Shredder, i think he is looking like a total mess. It seems like they overdid with him. I d' like a more minimal approach. But i 'll be

"Samurai/warrior"-looking Leo, "high tech gear/ genius"-looking Donny, "sportive dude"-looking Mikey and "tough guy"-looking Raph. I like their body shape and their faces,but i want to see them in action and having expressions for a better judgement. But for Shredder, i think he is looking like a total mess. It seems like they overdid with him. I d' like a more minimal approach. But i 'll be patient for footage to see him in action...

Awesome

Rafael's full head mask looks BADASS. The DIY samurai theme was a great choice. Love it.

It's what I was expecting; I don't have a huge connection to the turtles so I'm indifferent on this. But Jonathan Liebesman at the helm and Michael Bay in the producer's chair do not inspire confidence. Shredder looks pretty badass but we'll all know it isn't a Japanese actor in there.

It doesn't matter

The characters could look utterly incredible, it genuinely doesn't matter, because the track record of the film-makers behind it scream nothing but a soul-less, messy, train wreck.

Honestly, these look pretty badass. It looks like each is going to have their own unique body type. Raph looks cut.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but

These look EXCELLENT. These excuses that the jaw isnt round enough or that Shredder looks like Megatron?! (dafuq?) are simply the most infantile nitpicks for the sake of nitpicking.

Great look.

Cowabunga

I find the main Leo image to be better than than I thought, anyone else notice the NIKE lettering on Leo's arm?I like that they have gone for a darker edge with darker colours, like the first movie rather than bright and bold and cartoonish, the headband looks a little purple to me although the model of Leo shows a brighter blue so I hope it's more that, not sure I like Raphael's headband covering the entire top of the head should be eyes only, loving the tech gear on Donnie's head. I'm loving

I'm loving the shredder he looks badass the only thing I dislike is the over complicated face I do think it's inspired by transformers, i for one hope this changes and goes back to being a really simple piece of metal. Otherwise his face and and suit is just to much.

These look great

All the people complaining about this, can you please tell what you wanted or expected. Leo looks like he's cobbled together a samurai costume from the sewers of New York. I like how their armour reflects their personalities a little bit.
Can we stop expecting so much from this film. It's about giant fighting turtles. It should a fun movie, and these turtles look like they'll fit in well.

They don't exactly look like teenagers. What throws me off the most is that the traditional round face is replaced with the more square jawed superhero face. There is some serious uncanny valley happening here.

It's not as bad as expected, but that doesn't mean I'm a fan of this design.

I've seen those earlier today, I have to say I am not really surprised by how disappointing these designs are. Shredder on one hand is a little too much. Maybe if they'd cut down on the spikes, razors, all those sharp edges and that silly looking grin on his face mask, then he'd look about ok. Now he looks like he's on razor-roids.
As for the turtles themselves, well just the fact they gave Mikey tattoos should be enough to nuke the internets for most, not me, but there are too many things

Sweet

Leonardo looks pretty sweet. Personally if he's anything to go by I really think people are just whining to whine if they have much negative to say about these designs. Myself, not the most massive of Michael Bay fans, BUT why judge so harshly before you've even seen a trailer?

I think that goes with the territory. The previous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies did not look much better, and it's hard to make the cartoon turtles look anything less than creepy in a realistic setting

Well, I gotta admit, they look pretty awesome. I just wish this whole thing was in the hands of a better director.
