Baron Draxum's design

Alchemist
Has nothing to indicate this within his design
Warrior
Somewhat looks the part but his armor is horribly designed,what the hell is that thing on his stomach supposed to be?
Mutant
He nothing to indicate that he was ever human and resembles more of a demon than any kind of unnatural monster.The closest thing unnatural about him would be his shoulders and his horns.but his shoulders look like they are part of his armor instead of growing out of him and his horns seemed to be a bad design choice instead of intentionally making him look abnormal.

I dont care about black April

I dont care about the resign

I DO care about immensely about them changing their fucking weapons. I know they have been trying to get rid of Mickeys nun chucks for years but getting rid of fucking Ralphs Sais and Leos twin katanas? Get that shut out of here.

Nicholas Hill

Who the fuck are they trying to appeal to kids? Doesn't Nick still air re-runs of 2012? Seriously the one thing I always liked about TMNT cartoons was how honestly when it came down to it alot of them were damn good adaptations. 80s is well 80s,2003 is a great return to form, and 2012 was actually pretty alright in some regards. This one looks to be the worst adaptions ever.

Isn't there a rumor it has to do with the UK making those weapons illegal?

Eli Campbell
Eli Campbell

I'm willing to bet the weapon changes (as well as the wildly different designs) were done at the request of the marketers. The previous TMNT cartoons all had a lengthy break in between each other, but this one is coming hot on the heels of the previous one, which has had toys on the shelves since 2012 (and are still there to this day). Parents just bought little Johnny a plastic pair of sais last year, and might be less willing to buy another pair when the toys for the new show come out. However, if they give all the turtles different weapons, parents are less likely to go "I just bought you nunchucks last Christmas!" Same thing goes with the turtle's designs. I think they went out of their way to make everything visually distinct from the last show purely for toy sales.

While 2003 was my favorite, I did like 2012 a lot. It had its fair share of problems, but it felt like it was made by people that loved the franchise and tried to include stuff from every iteration. Plus, I loved the monster movie aesthetic it had, and all the nods it to horror flicks. A lot of the mutants were genuinely disturbing and I really dug that. I watch a lot of messed up shit, and even I felt a tad uneasy about the whole Mutagen Man subplot.

William Martin

In the UK, they made them change Mike's nunchuks to a grappling hook. Also ninjas are illegal, so the changed the name to "hero turtles".
They also had to remove Mitsurugi from Soul Edge and replace him with a white man called Arthur, because samurai are illegal.
Also, they cut all Bruce Lee's fights, took out all the nunchaku fights, repeated kicks, and scary claw hands.

Connor Jackson

Man the UK is full of faggots.

Luke Rodriguez

samurai are illegal in the UK

fucking why? Are knights illegal? How has this affected the flow of anime featuring samurai into Britain?

Alexander Morgan
Alexander Morgan

No idea, but Arthur is literally wearing Mitsurugi's armour and using Mitsurugi's sword and Mitsurugi's moves, he just has blonde hair and a beard.
So really it's Mitsurugi's race that was problematic.

Mason Reed
Mason Reed

but Soul Edge already had Seigfreid though? They have been trying to get of Mikeys nun-chucks for years though. Even in 2012 they made it a sort of Kurisagama

Honestly, I wonder why we're even remotely concerned with saving the UK from itself. Even if they actually pull off the Brexit, they'll still be stuck under a spectacularly awful government system. They need to go a step further and just embrace the civil war they've badly needed for the past half century.

They're all different species of turtles.
I always considered them to be blood brothers from the same brood, not possible with this and it disgusts me so.

Oliver Cruz
Oliver Cruz

They aren't even the same species anymore much less brothers.
Every smartass redesign in Tumblr tried to pull the whole visually distinct character design thing but they didn't go as far make them difference species of turtles. A big part of their identity is being brothers of the same brood thus almost identical in appearance thus the different colored bandanas (I know that they used to all have red bandanas).

April doesn't look old or mature enough. Also, the baseball bat is reminding me of Alfred with a gun in BtB promo (I know that he doesn't really use it often. I gave up on the show after Batman gave the LoA the Soultaker Sword.) Her being Black would be fine if she was more like Elisa Maza rather another Black teenaged girl Iron Man. Who is betting on her being a genius hacker too?

Gavin Thomas

I'll bet the turtles will always need her to come and save the day.

I did like 2012 a lot
I stopped watching once Leo's VA changed. Did the series get better or worse after that?

Elijah Brooks
Elijah Brooks

It got better in certain aspects. The Turtles now have to take things more seriously especially when dealing with Shredder. They defeat the Kraang too early in my opinion and should have saved that for the final season. There's one part in season 4 where they go into space which was fun for a bit. Leo gets better at fighting Shredder and ultimately kills him. Also Splinter dies at the hands of the Shredder. Shredder mutated himself into a huge version of himself with his armor fused to him and now has actual Wolverine claws. He basically snikt Splinter.

Dominic Long

at least it was still a ninja weapon instead of a fucking grappling hook like in the later batch of seasons of the 80's cartoon. This series is going to suck so much.

I actually don't mind if the Turtles used different weapons every once in a while.

In the original comics, in the pre-teenage adventure, when they had Iron Fist do-rags instead of Jackaroo masks, they used tonfa and manrikigusari.

Justin Gomez

That reminds me of the Black Johnny Storm in that movie that no one watched. People act like it shouldn't matter that Sue and Johnny aren't really related but it seems to add a dynamic to the characters that wasn't supposed to be there. Like it or not, siblings are generally blood relatives. It is like turning a character gay for no reason.

Ayden Davis

you could have told me that new design was Shredder and I would have believed it. Even though he's new, even he feels confused as to why he's in the series. It's gotta be trying to compete with nu-Power Puff Girls for worst adaptation.

Hopefully when they mean "species" they are just supposed to be the inspiration for there differences in design and not actual separate species.

It's like I'm looking at a screen of pure unfiltered seizure vomit. And they all look so damn ugly except for maybe Mikey. Leo just looks gaudy as all fucks. Its stylization gone mad.

Weapon changes are the least stupid thing, faggot. Although switching to only one katana and tonfas is about as pussy footed as it gets. Might as well replace the goofy katana with a wooden bokken at this point.

Christian Thomas

Only one that really needs a weapon replacement is Donatello. Also is it just me or did Sticks have thicker legs in the art?

Hudson Anderson

I stopped watching the show regularly after Seth Green's eternally cracking voice showed up. And I stopped watching it entirely after that one episode about the Wyrm which was just a word-for-word copy of that Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go episode. I know that maybe Glen just wanted it to be a throwback to Robot Monkey Team (as it even had a cameo of the genie from said show on one of the computer screens), but at least try to be more original instead of just re-using the same exact script.

Leo Parker

Julian Harris
Julian Harris

Only one that really needs a weapon replacement is Donatello.
I wasn't saying weapon replacement but something that they occasionally switch to. Don's bo staff is cool enough muh reach. He is probably the most inclined to using some gadget of the week so I wouldn't worry. If he does, I'm thinking a three section staff. Leo is the least likely to use a different weapon. His idea of an alternate weapon is a second sword. If he is forced to improvise, he'll probably use kali sticks. I wouldn't want him to not use his sword because it ties in so much with personality but it would be nice to see him use a weapon which can hit non-robots with. It is within Mikey's personality to try out different weapons. However, I don't like the idea of the show changing their weapons because the show just didn't want them using those.

Elijah Roberts

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bō

They will be change it to Teenage Mutant Ninja Repiles. Leo is a turtle, Raph is a Caiman, Mike is a frilled lizard, and Don is a Gecko.

Only one that really needs a weapon replacement is Donatello.

I always like the irony that the brainy one who loves technology uses the most simple weapon of the turtles.

Are they really blood brothers? I thought they were just random turtles from a pet shop. Although if they go with the pet shop origin this time around, it brings up the question of what kind of shop would sell a freaking snapping turtle.

Has anyone tried editing NuApril white? I don't really mind having a black April, but I think the design of this one is just awful regardless of skin color.

Nathan Flores
Nathan Flores

Yeah I think it was Tom Kenny. He did the voice of one of the monkeys on Super Monkey Team Hype Force Go and he did the voice of Dr. Rockwell who's a chimp with the mind of a scientist inside of him and also has telekinetic powers.

I thought they already have Mondo Gecko for a gecko character. That and Leatherback fills the role of the crocodilian mutant.

Christian Rogers
Christian Rogers

I realize that the style would actually look dynamic and actually has varying levels of line width but the reason why it's giving off a Calarts feel is because of those fucking eyes. They look like too simplified and they don't have enough line width nor range of emotions to come off as dynamic. They look like something belonging to a Calarts cartoon where they just draw the eyes as a generic almond and big black pupil.

Bentley Smith

Nothing you do will make this design good. The art style is hideous to begin with, and there's something disgustingly masculine about her face even despite the bedroom eyes and lipstick. Actually, pretty much the entirety of her design can be described as hideously androgynous, as expected of the current year.

Why do they have to raceswap characters? By doing this they can never bring back ginger April without the next author being labeled a racist. Way to go idiots.

Except a wooden bo staff is useless against triceratops aliens in reinforced armor. Even Mikey's nunchuks are made of sterner stuff. The worst part was in the TMNT 2012 cartoon. No other character had their weapon destroyed on a regular basis than Donatello.

That's the point, my dude. The people who make changes like that know very well it's hard to revert them without looking racist. In cases like this, the goal isn't to create a character for the black kids. If that was the case they would have created a new black character to try and flesh out the franchise more, like they did with Carter in the original cartoon. This is a way for untalented people to make their mark, put the show in the headlines, and be able to direct any insults the show receives as being from racists. Just look at how any time anyone shits on this, they always have to preface it with "I have no problem with black April, I'm not a racist! But I hate the designs of the turtles. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH APRIL THOUGH!" We've seen this marketing tactic time and time again over the past few years.

Honestly, I would have preferred almost any of those shorts to be made into full cartoons rather than this generic shit.

What's the source on this page anyways? I always see people bring up this exact page with the argument that April was always supposed to be black. It doesn't look like it's drawn by either Eastman or Laird, so was this one of the weird guest stories from when they split up? I know Laird stated that he originally created her to be Asian, but didn't end up going that route and instead went with New York Irish. Here she is in her first appearance with Baxter Stockman. If she was supposed to be black, why didn't they grey tone her skin like they do with every other black character who shows up in the book? She was also obviously white when she appears on color covers. Even in the color reprints from 1986, which Kevin Eastman colored, she was white.

TMNT (Vol. 1) #32.
The artist is Mark Von Bode, Vaughn Bode's no-good kid.
April is only black in the colourised reprint. Fuck knows what Bode was trying for, he was probably high at the time.

Thanks, man. I just went back and read that issue, well the black and white version since that's the easiest to find scans of, and there's a couple of things worth noting. She's coloured white on the cover, although I don't know what the cover for the reprint where she's black is. Also, for some reason she's a reporter now, like in the cartoon and movies. So I don't think the issue is them most rock solid example of canon. Although, let's be real here, a good portion of the Mirage comics aren't super concerned with continuity.

Don't you know it's racist to depict racial features besides hair?

Jose White

It's a bit of virtue signalling and a bit of racism. You see, for years now there has been a push for "natural black hairstyles" which generally means black hairstyles that aren't straightened or used a ton of chemicals to achieve the look. Usually it means things like braids, twists, or dreads, but sometimes it means fros too, even though a healthy fro would still require a lot of product to keep from being dry but I digress. A poofy hair style admittedly signals "this character is black with a black hairstyle!" If she just had a bun or a ponytail, she might not look like a nig at first glance or uncolored. But it's super important you know she's black and as well know they get it.

It would've actually been neat to have someone like Baxter as the human mc only to have him turn into an evil mutant and force the turtles into a moral dilemma on how to save their friend from his corruption.

Kevin Lopez
Kevin Lopez

Or if they were dead set on having a girl, they could have used Angel. Then they could have had her gradually becoming more involved with the Purple Dragons who turn her against the Turtles. I have a feeling this show won't have any moral dilemmas in it though. I can almost guarantee that if Baxter shows up, he'll be a classmate of April's. She'll beat him in the science fair and then he'll create the mousers to get even with her or something.

Wow… At the very least I thought the animation would be fluid and decent… This somehow looks shittier than TTGO. Only nice thing I can say is that the backgrounds don't look half bad. Also, is that supposed to be Splinter? Looks like a furry pig for fuck's sake. What a fucking dip compared to the badass rat we got in 2012. And April's voice is as grating as her design. At the very least hire a decent VA and give her a not-shitty hair style or have her dye her hair red.

I'll take this over what we're getti-
calling it transgender
not rule 63
They're ruining my fetish.

Almost every pre-2010s comic adaptation of a movie is always inaccurate, probably to get you to want to watch/buy the actual movie.

We can't have nice things. Although that shit about April being a living drawing was pretty silly though.

Is it wrong that I would actually prefer this to what we're getting?

Its basically TMNT meets Super Sentai/Power Rangers and they turn into green-skinned humans (and occasionally robots) for some reason and it uses their 80s designs. I can't say its good or bad, just really weird.

The Turtles in the films and comics have always had a slight color and pattern variation. They have differences. Though Leonardo is the proper species they were said to be here.

I like turtles. But who is the black woman.

I wish the TMNT shows and movies would be like the Old comics. The Old Comics are so fast paced. You get to DIMENSION FUCKING X in like issue FUCKING 5.

But TMNT is all about STAYING IN THE FUCKING CITY. LET DEVOTE TWO SEASONS TO MORE CITY SHIT. I really like the last cgi turtles series. It was really good overall. Overall awesome. The 2003 show was good to an extent. The Jack Kirby episode gets to me.

I love TMNT but the comics source material is such untapped potential for a fast paced show or Movie series. The Very First film had it down perfectly.

Movie two could of been baxter and the utroms but it was "cartooned"

My dad had this notion that at somepoint the turtles made comments about wanting to bang april. As a Kid he wouldn't let me read them.

You wash your mouth out. Splinter was a ninja master's pet rat, and watched every class he taught.
Even Shredder noted, the ONE time he fought the turtles, that they "fought well… in the old style". So Splinter taught the turtles in what was recognisable as Foot clan ninjitsu.

Which, if you accept the later, retarded stories as canon, isn't surprising, as one story had the turtles travel back in time and teach the Foot clan's ancestors. Yeah, I know, what the fuck? About on a level with April as a living drawing, and cyborg Donatello.

As a kid, it always pissed me off that he barely showed up in the original cartoon. He had a cool design and was bad ass in the first movie. I was glad when 2003 fixed that.

I enjoyed the few IDW comics I could find. Does any one else have trouble finding them or are my local stores just crap.
I don't think you're alone there. TMNT is one of IDWs best selling books and it still only sells around the 10,000 issues a month. 10,000 issues spread across every comic shop in North America means that there's quite a few stores that are ordering very few copies or none at all. They're easy enough to find scans online, but it's best that you follow a reading guide since there's a lot of one shots and mini series that tie into the main series tmntentity.blogspot.ca/2013/02/the-idw-tmnt-continuity-timeline.html If you're set on buying them though, the easiest and cheapest way to do that is with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The IDW Collections. They're omnibus releases that include all the main series, one shots, and mini series in chronological order.

Why would you want to buy a comic if it's identical to the movie anyway. The fun of comic adaptations is seeing alternate versions of the movie.

Too bad 2003 essentially toned him down after a couple episodes. He's supposed to have anger issues like Raphael and act a bit psychotic at times but they essentially just made him comic relief after season 1.
