Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

Update:

Greg Cipes will be voicing Michelangelo. If you don't recognize the name you'll probably recognize the voice; he was Beast Boy in Teen Titans and currently voices Kevin Eleven in Ben 10 Alien Force/Ultimate Alien.

Splinter will be voiced by Hoon Lee, whose name I don't recognize off the top of my head.


I think Greg Cipes will make a great Michelangelo.

The new show will be very influenced by the Fred Wolf cartoon. The Utroms will be known as The Kraang and they will work for the Shredder. They'll have robot bodies with the Kraang in the stomach similar to the classic Utroms and they will act as the Foot Soldiers (so a new take on the robot Foot Soldiers from the old cartoon).


This sounds bad. I'm all for mixing and matching elements for a new continuity, but that doesn't mean that the concepts should be put in a blender and re-glued afterwards.

Eh just have to wait and see. Utroms or Kraangs, name don't matter to me much. I just hope they don't try to make it overly campy like the Fred Wolf toon. Don't get me wrong the old toon was what got most of us into the turtles way back when but it's just painful to watch these days.

Though shout outs to Bebop and Rocksteady would be alright for me as long as they try an updated look for both. Do we have pics of anyone besides the turtles yet? Kinda curious to see how Shredder is coming along.

I am 100% okay with the new cartoon doing a spin on the Fred Wolf characterizations and cast. Archie's TMNT Adventures title was an alternate take on the Fred Wolf characters and was excellent. I imagine the new show will be like Fred Wolf, but with more modern animation storytelling techniques (and actual effort with the scripts, not just David Wise recycling the same plots for 190 episodes).

After the 4Kids series, I really don't want to see another take on the Mirage comics and storylines exclusively. I'm ready for a new take on the Fred Wolf characterizations.

I'm not really wanting a rehash of the Mirage storylines either. The 4kids series did an excellent spin on that. But on the other hand I don't want any of the villians to become comedy relief pieces for 50 % of the show. I have a hard time watching the FW series now because I hate how Shredder is characterized in the majority of the series.Other than a handful of episodes with some favorite characters appearing I really can only stand the first 2 seasons and the Red Sky episodes without the turtles mutating. I like having the villain that actually feels like he can threaten the heroes in some way. Shredder in the old toon lost that for a long time until he blew up Channel 6. Plus I hope that Casey comes in early in season 2 because I like having a supporting cast larger than April. I think the cartoon I'd really like to see really would be more of a continuation of the Imagi film.

Besides, if we should avoid using ideas from Transformers just because a cartoon was awful, we'd never see anything from G1!

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for Fred Wolf elements coming back. There were some fine concepts in there, and I actually miss Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady. I just don't know why the foot soldiers, Krang and the Utrom race all have to be the same (group) entity. It just seems like a waste of concepts to merge all those elements, rather than use them separately.

I agree that beyond the opening miniseries, the Fred Wolf cartoon is almost entirely insipid and unwatchable, but I don't think that warrants discarding all the characters and plot scenarios just because they were squandered by typical 80s cartoon storytelling.

As mentioned, the Archie comic spun out from the Fred Wolf cartoon (branching in a different direction after "The Incredible Shrinking Turtles") and made much better use of the ideas from the series thanks to serialized storytelling and less restrictions and censorship.

They were able to use the idea of Krang as an intergalactic warlord to more threatening effect (before they wrote him out) and though Bebop and Rocksteady's comedic elements were retained, they were still threatening and powerful (before they were, again, written out by the #20s). Shredder started out goofy but by the #30s became the best incarnation of the character we'd see until the 4Kids series, being very comptent and villainous. TMNT Adventures also made great use of the idea of Splinter being Hamato Yoshi to the point where, well, I actually prefer it over the Mirage idea of Splitner being an ordinary rat (heresey, I know).

And for a kid's cartoon, I think making the Foot Soldiers robots (or Utroms in exosuits) is a smart move, as it lets the Turtles USE their weapons. When they're humans, all of a sudden all Raph and Leo can do is cut ropes on chandeliers and deflect laser blasts. Make em robots and they can hack and slash to their hearts content!

I think ignoring the ideas created for the Fred Wolf series just because that cartoon was awful would be "throwing the baby out with the bath water", as it were, especially when we already have a perfectly good example of how those plots and characterizations can be effectively handled by writers that, well, give a crap.


Ok after the wall of Quote here. icon-fire.gif

I think I needed to check out the Archie comics a bit more there. I only got one issue and I believe it was the end of the intro of the Mutianimals. I remember Cudly taking the turtles away somewhere. But other than that I think the only other comic I saw had April turn into a turtle with a white headband. Still I do like someof the elements of the show. I want Bebop and Rocksteady. I want Krang. I want a busty April in a tight yellow jumpsuit with the zipper not all the way zipped icon-silverbolt.gif icon-blitz.gif

But then again I don't want the villains to be buffons all the time. I want the turtles to use their Weapons on the Foot. And layoff the Pizza jokes.

Well, "deadlier", yeah, but their foes are going to be primarily robots, so I don't think they'll be killing anyone with em.

*pout* between Thundercats and this, I guess I'm gonna have to cave sooner rather than later and finally see about getting U-verse. (Cable can just go and *insert graphic actions that would get me banned if I listed them here*).

I'm psyched about this. For one thing, it says that the Turtles aren't going anywhere. Like Transformers, the turtles may change from series to series, but it's become a franchise that (in one form or another) seems to be here for the long haul. I can't count that as anything but a good thing.

I grew up with the Fred Wolf cartoon, which, while hard to watch now, is what got me and most of my generation into the TMNT in the first place. The Archie comics were nice in taking the Fred Wolf cartoon and maturing it a bit for the fans who had grown up a tad after watching the cartoon.

I've also read quite a few of the Mirage comics, which were also nice in their own dark and gritty way. The 2K3 cartoon was also a nice blend of the old Mirage comics and going its own way.

Thing is, I've seen all these now. I don't need yet another revision of the old Mirage comics. I've seen it before. I don't need a revision of the old Fred Wolf cartoon. I've seen it before.

I like the way this seems to be going, taking bits and pieces from each of the old iterations and making something new with them.

I also wouldn't mind seeing an updated Rocksteady and Bebop...heck, Tokka and Rahzar would be nice too. I'm guessing Ninjara would be a bit much to ask for, though.

Looks like a proxy 3d model used for massing in animations.
