‘Ninja Turtles’ Expo Display Offers Best Look Yet at Heroes in a Half Shell

Arriving on the scaly heels of photos of maquettes leaked from the movie’s set, a promo image for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may offer the best look yet at the updated Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.

Comic Book Therapy unveiled the shot of a display from an unidentified toy expo showing the heroes in a half shell with their traditional weapons and color-coded masks, and a few new touches here and there. The general appearance and costumes of the Turtles appear to match up pretty well with those set photos.

It’s worth noting, too, that the display refers to the film as Ninja Turtles, suggesting Bay and Paramount Pictures may have returned to the earlier title.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the film stars Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter, and William Fichtner as Shredder. It opens Aug. 8.

    The sun glasses on Raphael, the glasses on Donnie, and the gold chain (?) Mike has on him, gives me this really 90s like vibe, that kind of annoys me. That kind of look like actual turtles and while that creeps me out I always thought they should.

  • Mario Kruzz Zavala

    agreed !!!

  • Andrew Breneman

    The absurdly garish coloration of the poster probably contributes to a lot of my dislike of this poster. I am not a huge fan of Mikey’s Bling, but I have seen worse on official TMNT merchandise.

  • MikeTR

    Michaelangelo’s jewelry looks like a seashell necklace to me, not bling. Surfer, dude.

  • Blair Brydges

    someone please stop giving Bay money.. hes already ruined too much of my childhood.

  • randomizer9870

    these are just too terrible. Someone just stop giving Michael Bay projects, especially beloved cartoon franchises.

  • BeastieRunner

    In an effort to not be negative, check out Raph’s deltoids!

    Dat delt …

  • DarthTigris

    He’s just a producer on this. He’s busy ruining Transformers right now.

  • samuel

    Zoomed in more and yeah, kinda does look like sea shells.

  • Kenny Pick

    I’m so glad I’m not that invested in this franchise. It seems like Bay has been a slow motion train wreck with TMNT. At any rate, I feel the pain of dedicated fans.

  • Spedsy

    Kids are gonna be scared of these Turtles… I’M scared of these Turtles!

  • BeastieRunner

    Looks like surfer dude puka shells to me.

  • Wurz Razanov

    The. Lips. Look. At. The. Lips

  • Kaine Morrison

    Forget the lips… Look at the Nose! Why do they have noses?

  • Seraphix

    Mikey should have the sunglasses too. Raph would just break them in anger.

  • Living Silver

    They’re elf lips!
    That and the noses! I don’t like.

  • Ronbot 3

    Surely that’s his nunchuks wrapped around his neck?

  • Ronbot 3

    Gold chain? I figured it was his nunchuks.

  • Adam Casto

    you just know they’re gonna speak swag. and that alone annoys me. Blast it Bay why must you keep destroying my childhood

  • Johnny

    You know what? I’m actually fine with this. The Turtles belong to the next generation as much as they belong to us. As long as they are in character (i.e. only Raph or possibly Mikey would speak swag) I don’t mind at all. Donnie should use geek Internet speak or make 4chan type references.
