Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

Gonna need to see it in the context of the show.

Getting a weird Frog vibe from Mike and Leo. The changing of the weapons kinda makes sense to a degree. The G1 cartoon took Mike's nunchaku and replaced them witha grappling hook. I can see why they gave Raph tonfas for a similar reason. Still brutally violent but not stabby violent.

Donnie's whole thing here is looking odd to me. He seems like hes being suspended by the hover thing wrapped arpund his shoulders. But he's got his legs crossed like he's sitting on something.

Edit: woof! That Splinter is going to take some getting used to.

Edit 2: http://ew.com/tv/ris...les/april-oneilthe turtles are actually each a different species of turtle. Thats pretty cool (explaining Leo's decorations)

Watched the reveal stream on facebook.. Not much more new info other than each one of the turtles are different species.

 

Raph - Snapping turtle and de facto leader of the group

 

Leo - Red Eared Turtle and more of a snarky overconfident one

 

Donny - Soft shelled turtle, Less into bio sciences and more into tech and coding, creates battle shells for himself, some possibly with their own personality (probably opening up for a new Metalhead)

 

Mikey - Box Turtle, more of an artist but still the youngest and most innocent of the group. Likes to tag his shell with stickers, can possibly retreat fully into his shell unlike the others.

 

Didn't get much for Splinter and April. Splinter sounds like he's going to be less active than the 2012 series if what Bauza's jokes during the stream can be counted on for his personality. And other than seeing April with her glowing energy bat we didn't really get any background info.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Putting this here rather then the other thread: Okay, right now I think we are more or less in an 'First image of Transformers Animated' period, and that these all might look and work much better in motion... but man those are some ugly designs, especially Splinter who looks kinda rabid...

The colors and dynamic 2D-ness of it remind me of the 2003 series, with the brightness and glowing weapons especially evoking the "Fast Forward" sixth season, while the art style itself (as others mentioned in the other TMNT thread) calls to mind the likes of Animated and its ilk.

Well if the title of this thread could be changed it would probably cause less confusion. Otherwise I don't know why we needed to split them in the first place. It's not like the '87 or 4Kids series were ever considered off topic.

The separate thread already exists.  Even if anybody doesn't personally like it, there's no reason to deliberately muck them up.

 

Changed the thread title for clarity.

For some reason I'm getting a very Don Bluth vibe from that Splinter.


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

TMNT has always been odd for me in that despite being one of my earliest fandoms I've always been fairly loose with it later in life. I tried going all in with the first Nick show but burned out sometime in season 2 (only finished that season because I got the chance to interview Ciro and thus needed to have my facts straight).

 

This is getting a lot of hate but my reaction is...eh. Consider we have just had a show which despite doing some new things was by its creator's admission trying to keep things classic. The four brothers, the Splinter vs Shredder feud, etc. Coming right after that this show has to do something different or there's no point. Heck, Nick did that whole series of shorts which was basically pilots for new takes on the TMNT (A nostalgia driven parody, mecha turtles, etc).

 

I survived Next Mutation. I'm pretty confident I'll survive this.

I don't hate it, but I am fully apathetic about it. 

 

I mean I applaud the attempt to do something different, but it doesn't do anything for me. Maybe as the series go along they can tighten up some of the character designs as I actually kind of like some of the ideas but the execution is... a little rough.

Hate that Raph is leader. Yeah, looks like Fast Forward cuz of the weapons.

Kinda cool that TMNT is doing awesome. 2003 was great. Nick was great. Dunno about this but they seem confident.

I really like Mikey's meteor hammer.
Raph is a bit Hulk-like for my tastes, and the costumes are a little bit busy, but otherwise I love the designs and art style. I was afraid of a homogeneous Flash cartoon look, but this looks a lot closer to Animated.
Raph being the leader is interesting. It's cool to have a new dynamic, but at the same time I wonder what they're gonna do with Leo - "Leonardo leads" is basically his whole deal.
(Also, April!)
