Definitely not the kind of design I would go with if it were up to me, but they're not the total disasters I was expecting.
Yeah. I don't like the nostrils and I'm ambivalent about their sort of hulking look. But this could have been far, far worse. I'm giving credit for at least being relatively close.

They look odd, and mean. It's like Shrek and Godzilla 1998 had a baby.

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.
Great. Now I won't be able to look at the new Turtles without thinking of Warriors of Virtue. Thanks a lot.

Seriously though, the new design really doesn't look bad at all. I was expecting something much more divergent from the traditional look.

I actually kind of like those figures. As for the clothing that some people have commented on, it honestly looks to me like the kind of stuff that you tend to get when older people try to look young and hip, and do it badly.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

I like how the top of Michelangelo's dorsal shell matches the lines of his belt straps. On one hand I like the look of these but on the other hand they're too "busy" with all of the clothing, straps, belts, different masks and such on them. It's too much. Sort of like how busy and over-complicated looking the Transformers were. It's going too much too far rather than just keeping it simple!

Now you are making me want to rewatch the first TMNT movie all over again. Not the sequels though, those sucked.

That's a good way to put it: "too busy." And what's up with the headgear on Donatello!? Do they think we need visual confirmation that he's the techie of the group? Is it not enough that he acts smart but he has to look smart too? And is he going to be wearing that headgear into battle too?
