Re: How excited are you about the new Ninja Turtles movie?

^The only reason the Foot Soldiers were robots in the '80s-'90s cartoon was censorship -- you couldn't show the good guys using weapons against living people on cartoons, so their enemies had to be robots that could be stabbed or smashed without remorse. The modern cartoon does much the same thing with the Kraang robots, whose alien-brain pilots always manage to bail out safely after the Turtles smash the robots (even though, realistically, the Turtles would be much better off targeting the soft, squishy, exposed Kraang directly).
