Take a look at the Turtle Van and new set pictures from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

For some of us there is nothing more iconic from our childhood than the Turtle Van from the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES animated series. The toy was a must-have for any kid at the time, and even if you didn't own one personally I'm sure you were friends with someone that did. Well, maybe you weren't friends but you probably tolerated the spoiled punk so you could play with the awesome toy van with your army of turtle action figures.

New set pictures from TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES have made their way online, and in a couple we get a good look at the Turtle Van that will appear in the movie. There's also images of Megan Fox as April O'Neil doing a report and Will Arnett as cameraman Vernon Fenwick, but I'm sure most of you are here for the Turtle Van. The van looks a bit more rugged than the one from the cartoon show, but the changes made aren't too drastic in my opinion. And don't worry about the sling on Arnett's arm: it's just for a scene in the film and not because he was injured.

Starring Megan Fox, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Will Arnett and Whoopi Goldberg, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES will be in theaters on June 6th, 2014.

Pizza dude's got 30 seconds!!

I think the van looks pretty sweet! I had the pizza launcher, and the truck that shot plungers when I was a kid.

Wouldn't be shocked

..If this van like transforms into a giant mechanical turtle or something stupid. It would still show more facial expression than Megan Fox though. Keep ruining this movie Michael Bay. You are doing a superb job at it

Screw This.

Megan Fox as April O'Neil. I still scoff whenever I think of that. Whitewashing Shredder and changing his name. Michael Bay overall screwing with a concept that doesn't need screwing with because he seems to get off on it. Fox as April. So many capable, proven actresses out there, and he goes with the one who lacks acting skill. Fuck you, Bay. Fuck you.

I really wish they would have just listened to the fans

I am so confused and disappointed in this whole movie. How is it possible to get this so wrong? Casting is wrong, voice actors are wrong, style is wrong.I have been a fan of TMNT for as long as I can remember. I had all the toys, watched all the movies, read the comics and have watched every version of the cartoon series including the new Nick one, and this just doesn't look like it compares to anything, except maybe the third movie which was ridiculously bad. If this turns out to be good I

oh well....

oh well......maybe the next time they reboot the TMNT's well get a more gritty version. This just looks like Transformers sequels bagged with Ninja Turtles. But you know it will be marketed right and all that crap and it will pull the money that they want. You 'll have the typical dumb fans that attach themselves to anything a director like Bay would do. Bigger, Dumber, more TOY TIE INS!!! I understand that they want to make money on other stuff rather than just the movie itself but this is

Bigger, Dumber, more TOY TIE INS!!! I understand that they want to make money on other stuff rather than just the movie itself but this is overboard....you never sacrifice your movie for the TIE-IN crap....THATS A TOTAL SELL OUT!!
Good luck on this piece of garbage.....
Look, the movie would have been about alien ninja turtles if the fans hadn't said anything...100%!! So you can't expect anything less from an asshole director like Bay. The guy is a total sell out. He cares less if the movie is good or not....all he wants to see is what numbers it makes....he disguises himself as a director that cares about the property he is working with but nothing can be further from the truth.
Transformers part 1 was pretty enjoyable in the theaters....a big summer blockbuster type for sure...but that's it. It didn't have any lasting appeal. The story for it was good because it was the first time the Transformers were introduced in a movie.....you would really have to be a total tool to mess that up...but he couldn't pull off one of the sequels....NOT ONE!! THEY ALL SUCKED!! He wouldn't know a good story if it smacked him square in the balls and worse yet is he doesn't care.

ROFL!

Well you can quash any hopes of this being even semi adult oriented. This is a toy tie in movie plain and simple, they may use advanced techniques to render the turtles but it will be nothing more than a live action poorly done cgi kids movie.

This online fan book was pitched to Bay and Nickelodeon to be a 300 page graphic novel. They passed because it was too mature. I'm guessing this is going to be mostly for children rather than those who grew up with the turtles. The van is terrible and Megan Fox is hot yet terrible.

I'm kind of disappointed that the Turtle Van doesn't look more like a turtle. You know, the way that the Dumb and Dumber van looked like a big furry dog?

I don't like the van. I guess this is gonna be a super kids movie. Obviously it was never gonna be schindler's list, but I thought it could go for a gi joe vibe, but by the van I think it's gonna be more like a smurfs/Alvin and the chipmunks type movie. I'd much rather just have like an old van that's like dark-faded green. A van that was used at Woodstock. Not one that has suped up tires, and painted like a fucking shell. I'm cool with them eventually adding gadgets on but for them to have

I'm cool with them eventually adding gadgets on but for them to have a brand new van like that is stupid. I realize it's a movie about talking human sized turtles (and am a huge fan), but I'd still like a little believability. I guess that's stupid of me considering who's making it.

That's not bad at all. Extra tidbit: The Turtle Van and Shredder's Vehicle - I don't know what it's called but it's a 50s car that on the box cover Bebop and Rocksteady drive the car and Shredder is in the back preparing to fire a cannon.

That's pretty awesome. I'm pretty excited for this movie. While a lot of people want some dark and gritty turtles movie, this is looking like a movie version of the classic cartoon which I think is awesome.

I think we're all pretty prepared for how terrible this movie could be, so as long as it looks good, and is entertaining, it is a win in my book. I'm not going to complain about small details when I could just as easily watch the other movies, tv shows, or read the comics if I disagree with aspects of this movie.

Unfortunately, Megan Fox is starting to look like an old over-worked Courtney Cox as opposed to a hot 20-something like she's supposed to. But I'll get over it.

I don't know why people shit all over this movie. So far from the production pics, it looks like it's going to be pretty good. And the Turtle Van? That looks awesome! This has just been put on my radar for next year.

Because every filmmaker and producer involved in it are awful and have a near perfect track record for exceptionally bad movies.

And Megan Fox, who is terrible, is April, and William Fichter who isn't asian is playing Shredder and for some reason Whoopi Goldberg is involved.


Honestly, take the TMNT logo away and you have nothing worth looking forward to.

Director - Jonathan Liebesman ( Wrath of the Titans, Battle Los Angeles, The Killing Room, Darkness Falls)
Writers - Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec (Both have written shows that have failed miserably)

But people like us get the thumbs down for our comments... interesting

heh

If it doesn't have the side door openning to a turret then they shouldn't bother having the van. I liked that it wasn't in the originals, kept with the whole 'out of sight ninja' theme they were doing.

Okay ...

I think the van looks good. I don't hate Fox's look as April and hell, I'm pretty confident the turtles themselves will look pretty cool. Visually, where I want to be impressed is with Shredder. Or is it still Col Shrader? If its the latter, I'm still ready to ninja kick Bay.

I'm really hoping this is fun, but have the bad feeling it'll just totally piss me off.

these are the same people who gave all thumbs down when we said the green lantern looked like it was gonna suck, or same with Pacific Rim. Let your fandom run wild and dont give a damn about like actual talent working on the movie or anything like that, just keep giving thumbs down to anyone who says anything remotely offensive to the actual children who like turtles...wow!!!
