Okay, maybe kids will eat up these TMNT designs from the new movie, but for an old-schooler like me, these are a horrible bastardization of my beloved Turtles.
I guess my generation is just in the past. They've revamped all my old favorites for either new cartoons or movies-- Transformers, GI Joe, Thundercats, and not TMNT-- and I haven't really liked any of them.
Okay, I know that this isn't the 80's and 90's anymore. I know that kids need something more... current. Something shiny and complex and "cool", but sometimes the classic designs are classic for a reason. But, at this point, I'm just going to have to realize that I'm probably just stuck in the past and a bit out of touch with what captures the imagination of the younger crowd these days.
(Although Marvel has kept with their original character designs-- for the most part-- with their movies and they do far better than other movies that don't, like X-Men; so maybe that says something.)
So what do you guys think of these Turtle designs? Are they exactly what you wanted to see, or are they a freakish mess?
