These toys offer a better look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Mar. 14, 2014by: Niki Stephens

How are we feeling about the new live-action/CGI TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES? Anyone having any NEW MUTATION flashbacks? Just me? Okay, so I dont hate this. Im really hoping that everything turns out well. The Ninja Turtles were a huge thing for me growing up, and Im still watching them on Nickeoldeon. Theres a spot in my heart for each of those radical dudes.

When we first saw what each of the turtles would look like, I did cringe. However, theres more to it than that. Youve got to get the attitude of the turtles, and you have to capture that same vibe that the first live-action film did in 1990. That's just my humble turtle fan opinion.

How would you like a better look at the new turtles? Some turtle toys have leaked online giving us more details at what we are getting when the film drops on August 8, 2014. My favorite of the group is Leo. I still dont understand whats going on with Mikey. Raph looks like he's straining to poo. Word is that a trailer for the film will be attached to CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER. Apparently it looks really cool. I guess you can find out for yourself cause you know you're going to go see it. We should have the trailer up shortly after when a legit non-bootleg copy surfaces online.

Check out the turtles below.

if i was a kid i wouldnt want to play with those nor would i buy them for kids. as a collector i wouldnt even put them on the shelf coz they look terrible. the designs are too busy and not aesthetically pleasing. raph inparticular wtf is going on with his tiny head and hulk vains in the neck.? its just so messy look at leo from behind all that brown crap he litrelly looks like a walking pile of shit !!

this whole reeboot weather its the movie or toys or merc has nothing good to show us yet

this whole reeboot weather its the movie or toys or merc has nothing good to show us yet im not just one of those people who hates new stuff and only likes nostalgia turtles. i actually love the idea of a dark edgy turtles reboot like the original comic but theres good and bad ways to reboot and visualize something iconic and what were seeing so far is far from good.

Okay and what was limit for reboots for Ninja turtles movies. Because I'm pretty sure it ended in 2007 after TMNT. I don't know I guess I'll just keep watching the Nick show.

they all look horrible

truly terrible.. yuck. somebody must have said that the turtles needed to "cover up" their turtle parts, that is why they are all wearing rags and spanks and stuff. donnie's three sectional staff? hmmm he'd better use those nun-chucks during the movie really that's his weapon of choice this just does NOT work for me
unless the movie will be a remake of The outsiders or The Warriors or something that places the turtles into a post apocalyptic wasteland or something like MAD MAX . uh not

Meh.

If you like the Nickelodeon version of the turts, then you should check out the current run of the IDW comics. Possibly the best version of the turtles I've been exposed to.
I just hope Mikey still says cowabunga at some point.

Overkill

Then are trying way to had to be different, or updated, or modern or whatever they are doing here....

Donny has some sort of new weapon on his shell cause his staff is "boring", and he's the Tech turtle i presume?
They got rid of Mikey's Nunchucks cause why??? and why is he in track pants, and a hoodie?
Raph is supposed to be what? the Juice head in the family, with a gangster twist?
Leo is the only Normal looking turtle cause he's the leader and supposed to be serious about his role i

-The more they release the more they confirm my thoughts and feelings on this film being a disaster.

Side Note: the new TMNT is a great series thus far, if you haven't watched it and like the turtles do yourself a favour and check it out!

to all you angry fans

I was a huge fan of TMNT. I still have my TMNT underwear from when I was four. The reasons why I am not upset yet with this film: 1. We still have no clue what it will be like. 2. Everything moves forward (updates and new shit). 3. I am older now, and I can care less about Mutant Ninja Turtles and let the new generation of kids enjoy it like I did. 4. The original cartoons, toys, movies, and comics will always be there.

As a big tmnt fan, I dont hate the new looks but it does seem like they are adding things for no reason. I mean, samurai leo works nice, donny with some tech I can see and raph's look is alright but mikey's is so over the top nonsense. Yes, he's a cool dude, but not a pimp. The bling is stupid and his pant and sweater out of place. He needs more simplicity

What annoys me is the possibility that these are now the Turtles that we'll have to endure for the next ten or so years, as all the kids, their parents and TMNT fans are going to flock to this movie simply because of the name that Platinum Dunes has bought and slapped on the front of the poster, just like Transformers. And sequels will be made and made regardless of quality. It's a shame, as the new cartoon and current run of the comics is genuinely enjoyable fare, regardless of age.

Never

Never mind the fact that this movie will end up resembling nothing like we wanted/asked for, never mind the fact that it has fucking Megan Fox in it as April, never mind the fact that Shredder is a white guy, and never mind the fact that it's being made by the most soulless and mindless, movie making company working in Hollywood today.

People will flock to the sequels and continue to make excuses for it simply out of love for the title of the movie and because they dare not hope for better.

As an aside, I've always hated the excuses that "It's not for our generation". If it's not for "our' generation, then why use an existing license that plays on our nostalgia? And just because it's aimed at a younger audience, doesn't mean it has to be awful, the best films of our childhood were films that crossed generational threshold's and still stand the test of time today. I cannot see Platinum Dunes ever being responsible for something like that.

We've seen what the turtles and shredder will look like, but why not the foot clan and splinter?

They all look pretty cool to me. Raphael does have a stupid look on his facebut I would hope he's not go through the movie looking that way.

Overdesigned.

I won't lie, Leo's design is growing on me (he looks very Samurai-ish) but he's the only one. Mikey is so bro'd out it's ridiculous - almost as bad as the twins from Transformers 2...it's so stereotypical it's insane. Donnie's stuff won't bother me if he uses all those gadgets while in the movie but Raph's rebellious bandana is just ridiculous. Just completely trying to re-think the wheel here...as always when it comes to Hollywood and adaptations. They always get their ego on and think they

Sad and pathetic, really.

These designs look like they were overthinking it instead of embracing the simplicity of the original design. That's the problem with Hollywood remakes and reboots, they keep trying to fix something that isn't broken.

What? These turtles look like the original gritty turtles from the old underground comics tweaked up to be more badass, and to fit into the real world with human actors around them. They look much truer to the source than the cutesy kiddy cartoon show. I like the street-wear samurai look. They actually look like they won't only be fun but dangerous too.

Whaaaaat????

What the hell is on Donatello's back? A proton pack? Is he supposed to be busting a ghost in this movie? Why are they doing this to the Turtles? How the hell is it possible that an independent film company, 24 years ago, can make an awesome live action TMNT movie with zero CGI, that appealed to everyone? Yet today....we get this garbage. I miss the hell out of you Stan Winsten.

Not feeling these design at all. Whats with them all having crap wrapped around their waist? To me its too much. Why are my childhood favorites getting this over complicated look to them. First Transformers, now the turtles. just keep it simple with a few minor twist to each character to help give them seperate personalities. Anyways, Off subject - and I didn't know where else to post this question, but has anyone else heard about the director/writer of the Fantastic Four being fired by Fox cuz

Im not making this up, I read it on another site. Anyone else hear this?

Sometimes I do have to wonder - do we need to 'update' everything?

I guess I can get behind Leo and Mike... But what's Donatello wearing? And yeah something's not right about Raph.

I will wait for the trailer - but seriously - these figures have not helped me get behind this movie :-/
