Let me be the first to take back EVERY unkind thing I EVER said about the Nick show or any of the figures released from it.

We have seen the future of TMNT . . . and it is crap.

meh, not really diggin these toys. i'm not a huge fan of the designs. they should have compromised a little more with the classic tmnt look. the first trailer is set to air with cap2: winter soldier, i'm looking forward to seeing it and getting a better glympse.

I agree, I'm sure there could have been a better middle ground to base these on. Like you, I'll have to wait to see them on the big screen. Here's hoping they look a lot better in action.

i found a post about someone who has seen the tmnt trailer and said it was really good. they go onto describe the trailer. it sounds like it could be legit, so i figured i'll post it here for some chatter.
i got the info from here:

A guy over on 4Chan who claims to have seen the trailer has posted a review.

"So I just got a view of the first trailer for Ninja Turtles...

Oh my god it was great. Not the next Last Airbender by far. Jonathan Liebesmann seriously has his **** together with this. Only thing I can complain about is that there was barely any Shredder. The trailer gave me a Batman Begins kinda feel, as to where it seemed a lot darker than what we've seen before, probably on the level of the first movie in 1990.


>We open to a shot of NYC at night.
>We see quick shots of police cars chasing a lone semi truck.
>cut to black
>we hear the voice of Master Splinter: "You must never reveal yourselves to the ones outside on the surface."
>We get a quick shot of a large, brutish figure running forward on a building rooftop, quickly leaping over an alley.
> Black. "For if they are to discover the truth, they will not understand what you are"
>We get a shot of the figure landing in front of the windshield of the semi and breaking the windshield open.
>Black "They will have fear of you. That is why you must always keep yourselves concealed."
>Finally, we see the semi truck stopped completely. The police cars drive up behind it and stop. The cops get out.
>Their headlights illuminate the open back of the semi, revealing five members of the foot clan knocked out cold and hanging from the ceiling.
>The look on the first cops face basically says "what the **** am I looking at?"
>We cut to black and open on the four turtles, shrouded in darkness and we can barely see them, sitting in front of Master Splinter, who's hair is grey instead of brown. Splinter asks "Do you understand, my sons?"
>Leonardo looks up and says "Yes, Master Splinter"
>We see Megan Fox's April O'Neil looking through the fence at night like we saw in the set photos. We hear a voice ask "Can you tell me what happened?"
>We cut to black again and we see her in what looks like the middle of a very dark factory on the floor with several foot clan soldiers standing over her, rifles in their hands. She replies "...something saved me"
>She looks absolutely terrified.
>Suddenly, Raphael lands in between the foot clan soldiers and April and whips out both Sais. He gives the foot soldiers a grin and-
>We cut to black again.
>We hear a growling, badass voice. We all know exactly who this is. "I want them found. I want them brought to me."
>cont'd


>Music starts up around here. It's only drums, but it's badass. It starts out slow, but gets much faster.
>We see a shot of Mikey and Donatello walking in the sewers, Don with his bowstaff resting on his shoulder.
>We hear the voice again "They cannot hide from us."
>A group of foot clan soldiers walk through the sewers with their rifles trained forward.
>"I will exterminate them...every last one" (This sounded ****ing scary, the voice is awesome. It sounded pretty cliche, but the voice just totally makes it believable.)
>Finally, we see him: The Shredder. He steps out of shadows and looks forward. He throws his arm downward and two blades pop out of his wrist armor.
>BLACK
>We get our montage here. From what I can remember, we get to see Raphael chasing what I'm pretty sure is Karai on a rooftop, Will Arnett's character grinning at April inside her office, the turtle van, Baxter Stockman (pre mutation), Leo dueling foot soldiers in the middle of some high tech room, a motorcycle landing on top of a semi truck in the middle of a snowy forest during a chase, and the turtles captured from the set video that was released back in august. There's more, I just can't remember.
>During the montage it says "HEROES" "IN" "A" "HALFSHELL" in between shots.
>Finally, we get our title card. "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES" and "SUMMER"

Overall, I loved it. My description doesn't do it justice at all, it was a really, really great trailer. I was surprised there was no one liner from Mikey at the end or something. I didn't really like the whole "Heroes in a halfshell" being put in there, it seemed...dated? Not sure.

Overall rating? solid 8/10


ALSO, I FORGOT:

during the montage, we get to see Mikey skateboarding and two men inside a dojo during a thunderstorm dueling each other with swords, which I'm assuming is Yoshi and Oroku Saki. Not to mention Raph on a motorcycle and Don hanging onto the back of the turtle van. Also, there's no big money shot at the end. Just the turtles in battle stance.

Not digging the toys, but I am hoping that Sideshow or somebody do some nice high-end pieces to do justice to the design of the new movie turtles.

Anyone know when these will hit shelves? I did an image search on Google and found a display of the figs in package but it was rather blurry.

I can't vouch for how true this is, but I'm hearing there will actually be two lines of movie turtles. There's supposed to be a more "kiddie" line with limited articulation and built-in play features, then there will be a "deluxe" line with more detail, articulation, accessories, etc.

The basic line is what you've seen so far. The Deluxe line has slashing action or some such stuff. Some kind of attack that you can trigger by pushing a button or somesuch. Then they've got an 11" line of figures, just the four brothers.

Still not sold on the movie figures, they just don't look right with all those colors going on.

I feel a lot better about the articulation question, but they're still butt-ugly figures.

Like the van though.

Apparently, you squeeze the legs to trigger the action feature. Which begs the question, "If they get around to releasing a Deluxe figure of Megan Fox's April, what will IT do when you squeeze the legs together?" :unsure:

splinter is F'n ugly :( i still am not a fan of the clothes. i've given them time and they have yet to grow on me. i guess it's the design in general of all the characters. they look a little over the top...a little to "bay-is" for my taste. i really wish that they would have stayed closer to the classic look. heck, i'd have even been happy with something similar to the new toon look.

And there's your problem right there. If the toon does what every other cartoon and comic book has ever done when they got themselves a big screen adaption, they'll change the Turtles appearance to closer reflect the movie.

The classic look, the current toon look, the CG animated movie look, the 200X look, those are all subtle variations on the same basic thing. And quite honestly, all those figures look about the same (Bandanna, elbow pads, keen pads, a belt that may or may not have their individual letters on the buckle), all those are not radical changes. Frankly, I'm kind of surprised when I see so many people call for a more classic look. How much different would you expect those to be from the toys you've already got? Hey, I like the Turtles and I like that classic look, but don't you want to mix it up a little?

If these new looks aren't your cup of turtle soup, that's fine. I just appreciate when they try something different every once in a while...and that goes for almost anything. The turtles will not be depicted this way for the rest of time, maybe you'll like it the next go around.

Don't take this as any kind of defense for Bay Turtles. My expectations are as low as those for Age of Extinction.

Assuming you possess enough tensile strength to squeeze them together, I'd image they'd just spring back open and lock in place.
...sorry, I couldn't resist.

Went to my closest target which is about two hours away because they said they had the movie figs in. Got there and they brought the box out and let me get the ones I wanted only for them to tell me at the register that they couldn't sell them until July 6. I was really ticked. Tried to talk them into it but they wouldn't.

Give 'em a few months, they'll be begging you to take them!
