UPDATE: Do We Have Our First Glimpse Of The Final Design Of The New Ninja Turtles?
A few weeks back, a description of some toys featured at a recent toy fair gave us an idea of what the Ninja Turtles may look like in the upcoming reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. The description, which you can read HERE, listed each of the characters as having a very distinct look that matched up with the individual personalities and characteristics for Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo and Michelangelo. However, we never received confirmation as to whether or not that description was accurate or not.
This afternoon, the folks over at CBM received a blurry but revealing image of some miniatures that show off the new look and they are fairly close to that description mentioned above. You can see Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello, while Leonardo has his back to the camera. They have a much more aggressive and bulkier look than we’ve previously seen, but overall, I think they are a more fitting version for a modern retelling.
Last week, we saw a rather horrific image of a Halloween costume and it was nothing short of breathtakingly bad. It pleases me to see that they look as good as they do. We’ll have to wait and see if this is the final look for the film, which shouldn’t be too far in the future. The film is slated for an August 8th release, so a teaser trailer or other marketing material should be surfacing soon. Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, William Fichtner, Will Arnett, Noel Fisher, Whoopi Goldberg and Danny Woodburn star, with Jonathan Liebesman directing. Michael Bay is serving as producer.
Update: It seems this one blurry image opened up the TMNT floodgates! Doing a quick Twitter image search, some snaps of the Leonardo and Donatello miniatures have surfaced. We can see their backs in the image above so it’s safe to say these are the same miniatures. There is also some pics of alleged concept art for Shredder‘s new look. Those need a little more salt than the other two turtles.
