Re: New live action "Turtles"?

I like the van. One thing I was wondering the other day - how do you think it would be if they cast actual martial artists as the turtles?

I would imagine the people who are standing in for the Turtles on set in the motion-capture gear probably do know martial arts.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

First look at Michelangelo...



...'s tie-in costume.

SuperheroHype

Seriously though, it does give us some idea at what the final design will be, especially the face.

I don't mind the face too much, but the turtles wearing pants? Weird.

Does he appear to have a nose because it's just part of the costume? Or is that really how the Turtles' faces will look I wonder.

I've seen some of the concept art for the Turtles and I don't really care for the design. But I'll wait for a trailer before I actually judge the movie, though too be honest it needs to blow me away for me to have any kind of interest in this movie.

I'm actually ok with the clothes and bothered a bit by the face.

Those actually look pretty cool. The way the heads and bodies are shaped is giving off an "old-school-1990s-animatronic-slash-makeup-slash-Warriors Of Virtue" vibe. Which I like.

I'm sure they'll be all CGI in the finished movie, but still.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

Meh, I still don't like them. Personal bias, but I prefer them not looking like a 14 year-old's idea of "Fuckin' badass!" I always kind of liked that the Turtles looked friendly (as much as a 5-foot turtle can) but could kick the living shit out of you.

Just a hater hating.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

I'm not understanding the sunglasses motif they are going with at all.
Maybe in context of the film?
This looks like it was taken at a Retailer booth, probably same time/event as that horrid Halloween costume from last week.
