Feb. 1st at 1pm Eastern the first designs will be revealed during a Facebook Live feed!

There is an image going around but it's a leaked image, and no one has confirmed it.  So going to wait to share the designs till we have an official release. 

For those who don't have the Facebook Page URL here it is:

this may be the first turtles series i skip if it doesn't interest me.

Black APril, because she was black in a few comic issues... OK. Black because of diversity change?  no.


The rest of these horridly stylized designs seems like change for the sake of change.

Raph and Don Bother me the least.

Michaelangelo seems like a jared leto joker remix with the stupid art on his knee pads.  and why does his chuck have a yo yo on it?

Leo just looks anymic (sp)  .   

And Splinter.  my god.  Ididn't think anything could look uglier than the PD Splinter. but they just about pulled it off.


It seems almost universally hated on FB comment pages too. VERY little positive comments.

I actually think it looks fun and colorful compared to the more washed out look of 2012..

Nicholas posted this image on TMNT Fan Page Facebook .  Thought I'd share... they're comparing the new art to the 4Kids series. 

For those who have not yet witnessed the designs





Since photobucket has turned into a paid thing, I just used the links straight from Facebook... so a big thanks to those on TMNT Fan Page and Turtle Flakes for having these images up. 

Still working on and off of my thoughts on these designs... got a bit of a write up in the works.

Long time no post (yes...y'know...years...*cough*)

But yeah, I think I could probably get used to the design, though maybe not Splinter, 'cause, dude. Did he get sat on or something? No wonder he looks so irritated.

What I'm concerned with is the potential writing quality. From the character write-ups I've seen, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the changes there. I'll give it a shot, but I don't know how long I'll last, especially if they go the way of Teen Titans Go. I loved the latest TMNT rendition, and I'm sad to see that go.

I have hope for the writing mainly because I know the people behind the series are good people.  They worked on the 2012 series, while they're giving this a new spin I do think they understand some things that TMNT fans like.

Of course, they also know they can't please every fan out there.   

I agree with you about Splinter... but I love his voice actor.  Eric did great at Tiger Claw and Hun!  And he's a very fun guy.  We got to hear samples of his voice during that live FB video.  I just hope they don't turn him totally into the comic relief.  I always loved how the Turtles had a father that we could all love and respect, good family inspiration there a respectable Sensie.  I don't want to see that lost, which is why that is the only one of the designs that I have a hard time with.
