Please no more Ninja turtles close ups! Mikey's head might be one of the ugliest things I have seen in my life.

Anyone remember the 4 player arcade TNMT game from the 90's?

The turtle van will be part of the movie lineup so it should somewhat resemble that version, though I don't think there have been any leaked pictures of what that will look like.

 

EDIT - Nevermind.  A quick google search shows this is what the movie version will look like.  It should be better than the Shell Raiser, though I don't know if we should just expect giant stickers on the side of it to recreate the custom paint job.  Ideally we would get a van based on the 80's/90's cartoon but I don't think that will happen.

The Ninja Turtles sets were never going to be aimed at the AFOL, investors asside adults must make up such a small percentage of their sales.

Is it just me or do the turtles look like Gremlins a little bit?  In fact the more I look at the movie poster the more I am convinced, they ARE Gremlins :)

Someone on Eurobricks said the exact same thing.

 

Bay slowly destroying my childhood memories :growl:

There is a fine line between 'artistic interpretation' and 'throwing out the book to do everything your own way'. This will probably end up being the same as the Batman & Robin movie all over again....

This is what frustrates me the most.  If you are going to make a movie about an established franchise then make it about that franchise.  These "artistic" changes drive me crazy.  I don't want to see Shia LaBeouf making out with a female robot and I want my turtles to be teenage and mutant!

What do people actually think is wrong with the TMNT sets?  I think the figures are well done, not sure about splinters slope brick legs.  People say about the shellraiser falls apart but that is said about other sets too.  I think there is potential for some of the sets that may be hard to find once the movie has been out a while.  Like other set themes (I'm looking at you Lone Ranger) much will depend on the success of the film.
