TMNT movie final turtle designs revealed, look ready for a videogame

We got a first look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the upcoming movie, and they look ready for a next-gen game.

The actual turtles from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie still haven't been officially revealed, but Comic Vine has images of what are purported to be the final design.

The site writes, "Previous details released about the movie's toys do line up with the details in the above image, so this definitely seems legitimate." The turtles bare very little in common with past incarnations, both in animated and live-action form, but in they blurry pic, they look ready to jump into a next-gen brawler.

No video game tie-in has yet been announced, but given the franchise's history, it's safe to assume that that announcement will be coming some time this year as well.

I wonder if Michael Bay is gonna bring a comedic factor to this feature. With these Hard looking (darker/evil) more rough turtles I cant see em cracking jokes. Hoping these pieces are from a certain scene and not the typical look.

A poster on another site said to watch Turtles Forever, so I'm doing the same. It was really good, though the voices are not what I remember, especially no James Avery as Shredder. Otherwise it's really good and the full movie is on you tube. I won't spoil what happens, but it was a 25th anniversary special done right.

Micheal Bay is out-Uwe-Bolling Uwe Boll.

It would've been nice if they looked like 'teenagers'!


If they all wear red bandanas for just a bit, Bay might redeem himself a little

Even if these turtles didn't look completely retarded (which they do) you are completely fooling yourselves for having any confidence in Michael Bay. This movie is going to be terrible, I'm just going to try my best to forget its existence.

As a fan of TMNT growing up (TMNT II: The Arcade Game was the first NES game I saved up for and bought myself), I might recommend the new run of comics that have been going the last couple years to those who still love the Turtles and are looking for more but are skeptical of the film (rightfully so). They're a great mix of nostalgia and refreshment, taking risks while still holding true to what made the Turtles so great before.

Right in the childhood!

Btw, there is a poster featuring all the turtles floating around the internet, don't know if that's their final design or not but they look terrible imo.

As for the video games tie-in...yeah considering the last TMNT game and the general record of movie tie-in games, no thanks.

Well i guess it's official. the Only good thing related to the Turtles was the original tv series (and i guess the ones that aired on CBS in the 90's when they used to air cartoons), the recent comics put out by IDW and of course the arcade game (which is still the best turtles game ever made)

Oh my holy garbage what the FUCK is Michael Bay doing making this movie?  Let sleeping dogs lie...  The 1980's version was bad ass, this pathetic garbage I hope bombs bad.  I wish people could see how bad Michael Bay is.  His movies are absolutely horrible.  I will never watch another one again.  After the atrocious Transformers 1 movie I couldn't even stomach watching the PREVIEW for the other ones.

Michael Bay does suck and all, but at least he made transformers a relevant thing again pop culture wise. As long as the new tmnt isn't god awful it may bring in alot of new turtle fans!

I suspect they're gonna be taking some serious roids to be able to lift those large shells and arms

Why must people continue to destroy the Turtles...God damn it, sometimes things made in the nineties are best left in the nineties!

Also, James Avery is dead, so splinter and shredder are no longer viable characters. Please stop raping my childhood memories, Michael bay...

I never really understood why the turtles needed masks.  Do they need to hide their true identity, as if no-one would notice a giant turtle working in McDonalds...

I really hope there is a circle in hell reserved specifically for Michael Bay.

I saw the rest of the images elsewhere and can help but wonder why does Leonardo look like Jada Kiss and why does the shredder look like a mini transformer..

That's an interesting take on the characters. Each one seems to have their own style. Raphael is going for the Conan look, Michaelangelo the Street Sharks look, and Donnie a Ghostbuster. Strikes me as a bit unnecessary.

On another note, does anyone know when Out of The Shadows is coming to PSN? I was really looking forward to that but they seem to have just ditched it.

@Supperdude9  In all fairness both Michael Bay and Uwe Boll have done some good movies as well. Check out Assault on Wallstreet, Rampage and Attack on Darfur, you won't believe these were made by Uwe Boll lol

@eas022 in addition to erasing his other movies from my memory sure I'd forgive him.

@wgerardi I'm hoping it won't be as bad as that 1998 Godzilla 'reboot', though.


Speaking of Godzilla, there's supposed to be another one coming out later this year. It's from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros., I believe.

@rickphoenixxx You call 2 boring hours of nothing but god damned product placement advertising relevant?

@rickphoenixxx Relevant with shitty shakey camera shots and horrible everything?  Uh no NO he did NOT.  I saw the first one and that was my last Michael Bay film i'll EVER watch again.  I grew up with the original japanese tv show, and that can't be beat.  I can't begin to explain how badly Michael Bay is fucking up the movie industry.  DIrectors like him, and Uwe Bol, should not be allowed to direct anything.

@Gloridel cause they needed colors, or people wouldn't recognize them... people have a hard time noticing the difference between a sword and a nunchuk

@ausfist Gotta have some kind of article that's vaguely or not even video game related in order to get more daily news posts.

@PlatinumPaladin How can you even tell? Don and Leo have their backs to us and I can barely make out Mikey and Raf.

@Tanares @rickphoenixxxi'm sure Bay made it just as relevant to the intended audience today as it was to you back then, when you were a dumb easily-entertained kid.

@-s3r6i0- @Inlex You shut up. He's entitled to his opinion. I also happen to think that Michael Bay is going to butcher the turtles. I mean alien turtles (not to mention ones that look like they are on roids)..

@Inlex @Gloridel  in the original comics, all four turtles wore red bandanas. The colours were introduced later for the cartoons and toys

@Goron24 @-s3r6i0- @Inlex the NT's always looked like their were on roids! Just look at then for god sakes! they are freaking turtles with more mussel gain that Arnold at his prime!

@gatsbythepig @PlatinumPaladin  No, seriously friend I got all of that just from looking at this image. There's every chance that I'm wrong, but that's just the impressions I got by looking at it. :o)

As far as Donnie goes I'm really swinging from the hip. You can see he's got something on his back with a hose leading from it, some goggles on his head, and something hanging from his hip (either armour or a gadget). All that together just made me think of Ghostbusters.

gatsbythepig
gatsbythepig

@PlatinumPaladin @gatsbythepig  got it... haha.

seriously though, there is no way you got all of that from the picture in this article.  2 turtles have their back 2 us and Raf is the clearest in the picture.  

Where did you go to see the better pictures of them.
