The concept art from the fourth TMNT movie that never was gives us a look at fifth turtle, Kirby

The next TMNT movie that Michael Bay has a hand in-- happening, not happening, in limbo-- whatever the case, I can tell you that TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES IV: THE FOOT WALKS AGAIN will never be anything other than a couple of scripts and some pages of dated concept artwork.

Currently up for sale at Heritage Auctions is that batch of TMNT 4: The movie that never was. Below you will see a few pages of concept art including Casey Jones with electric powered fists, Super Shredder, and the fifth turtle, Kirby (love the colors on the art). Co-creator of the TMNT, Kevin Eastman did the drawings, which aren't bad, but a little out there concept-wise. Hey, I think we've all seen crazier shit... "The fourth live-action TMNT film was pitched and originally scripted as a grittier, less kid-friendly adventure, and to that end Kevin Eastman designed a more brutish, hardcore fifth Turtle, named for the legendary King of Comics (Jack Kirby)."

Kevin Eastman – Character Designs for Unfilmed Fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Original Art Lot of 25 (1995-97).Many of these 14 pieces also have art on the backs, for a total of 25 pages of art!
