Know that what is in the first post of this thread is fact (confirmed by Nick, or the TMNT newsies who went to the fan event Roseangelo, Vaughn Michael, JoeGro, Machias, Archon...)... everything else is either wishful thinking or just speculation...

Nice, MS, this thread was long overdue!

gobo 04-05-2011 03:06 PM

Good idea, Multiple Sclerosis! ^_^

FearlessLeader 04-05-2011 03:06 PM

This should probably also be sticked, if someone in charge wouldn't mind doing that for us :tgrin:

VaughnMichael 04-05-2011 03:08 PM

The 4 TMNT

Krangs
Baxter Stockman
Splinter

Spitfire 04-05-2011 03:10 PM

Wait is there more then one Krang? Are they going to change the name of Utrom to Krang?

VaughnMichael 04-05-2011 03:20 PM

Some things that need stated.
FIRST OFF "THIS IS A MUTATION IN PROGRESS" MEANING THINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE!


Splinter is not young, he had a family and was human before mutation.
We only had been given a few tidbits about his past.
He had a daughter and Shredder thinks he's dead.
Shredder comes to NYC to destroy Splinter along with the Foot.

The 4 Turtles are all differnt heights and have pretty much the same attitudes from past incarnations.
Pizza is back.
Leonardo was pretty funny for once! (A good thing I think). He tries to be the leader but the other guys don't really follow him that well.
Raphaels sarcasm is back!
Donatello is a tall lanky junk yard parts inventor sort of like the old toon but updated.
Mikey is a silly, fun loving guy, who seems to have some a.d.d. problems. (Think Beast Boy from Teen Titans).

Shredder, from what We know he's going to give Freddy Krueger nightmares.
This guy's not a push over like the old toon one.
He's human as far as we know.
He wants Splinter dead as he thought he already killed him in the past.
Joins with the Krangs, trains them to be the new Foot Soldiers.

Foot Soldiers, they start off as human and later have a robotic army.
Not sure if the humans will stick around as Nick wants the turtles to be able to slice through them.

Baxter does not have a mutation outfit.
Donatello makes a ipod with the most storage space ever and Mikey grabs it and looses it in battle.
Baxter who has a robotic outfit to give him strength finds it after mikey drops it and plugs it in.
The ipod Don built has experimental goverment tech parts that Don found in a dump.
It joins with Baxters outfit and they become one character.
Not much of Baxter is explained but we do see he works at an office when he goes to get some payback.
He also shoots out Mousers from his outfit but they are not explained either.

The Krang are an evil alien race who have come to earth to take it over.
They mutate humans that they kidnap.
Shredder is training them to be the new foot, think robotic foot soldiers.
No word on a leader Krang, right now it sounds sort of like some hive mind race of aliens.

April is a young girl who is found by the 4 turtles when the Krang kidnap her and her family.
They are only able to save April, I'm going to asume the Krang either mutate or kill her parents.
But we will have to wait for the show to tell us that.
She's a flirt, skinny, redhead, doesn't really do anything besides bring the guys food and go to the movies from what we saw.
Donatello has a giant crush on her and I'm not sure if she really notices but she does sort of play into it and leads him on.
She got ticked when he didn't show up to go to the movies with her when the guys encounter Baxter.
Splinter trains April sort of like the Archie comics series, later down the line of show.

Casey Jones will not be in the first season and will be a bit older (18 i think they said) than the other characters (besides Splinter & Shredder).
We will see tags on walls in the city that say "Casey Jones" though.
Also if the love interest between Don & April is kept (please god why! no make it stop!) When Casey comes along it will cause tention because Casey will be the new human male interest for April and it will really tick Don off.

The Foot will be human at first and then from their it seems they want to go robotic so they can have the turtles slice em' and dice em'.

From what I gather we're getting a mix bag of things.
They want to not rush the stories of the characters and give us their pasts over the entire run of the show.
I for one think that is a great idea as we've always just been give it all in one lump.

Oh, sweeeet, I'm lovin' this already!:tsmile:

Powder 04-05-2011 03:32 PM

I loved everything you said, Vaughn, except for the lack of Casey Jones for 26 episodes. Le sigh.

CyberCubed 04-05-2011 03:34 PM

So is THE Krang in this? The leader?

Bebop and Rocksteady?

You should be very excited!
This is a show for fans of all the TMNT worlds in my opinion.

I know man, I wish he'd come in sooner also.
But at least we know he's gonna be there!

The Krang are not just one character, they are an entire race come to take over the Earth. Like the Utrom but evil.
Bebop & Rocksteady have not been shown or spoken of.
I wouldn't rule the idea out though as Mutation seems to play a big part in the new series.

CyberCubed 04-05-2011 03:41 PM

I meant is there a leader who resembles Krang from the OT? This reminds me of the Krangezoids ep from the OT.

Also any other villains? Rat king,'Leatherhead?

TobTurn 04-05-2011 03:46 PM

Sounds VERY promising! Thanks for clearing the whole Baxter Stockman issue up!
Hmm.. The Krang as one race? Don't know if I like that. Do they look like Krang from the OT?
And Shredder is training The Krang to be Foot Ninja? I hope we don't see that soon enough. If The Shredder is to be human, I'd like to have him introduced as a normal crimelord without connections to "weird" things, except the turtles ofcourse. Kinda like in the '03 series, at first he seemed like a normal ninja crimelord, but that changed very drastically.

So how do the characters look in comparison to the previous incarnations? And any sign of Hun? There's been a rumor going around about him.

Roseangelo 04-05-2011 03:51 PM

It should be noted that nothing we saw at the event is actually official, and is still an "Mutation in Progress," as Nickelodeon calls it. :trazz:

We did not see one leader, there is just the entire race.
They got a mention when talking about the wraps on the turtles bodies but we didn't see them and they didn't talk about them being in the show.

No sign of Human or anyone from 2k3, yet.

Indeed, this alone gives me hopes that some things can be changed still.

A little *too* Raph 04-05-2011 03:57 PM

Well I was already pretty excited, but this has settled some uneasiness I may have had. Sounds like it is shaping up quite nicely!

Actually, this sounds more interesting than what I was expecting. April "orphaned" in the first episode could have some nice dramatic ramifications. On the other hand, the TMNT fighting to restore mutated humans could add a layer of drama to the show, ala Sonic the Hedgehog SatAm, especially if April's parents are among the mutants.

Can you say whether the mutation chamber destroys the subject's free will or just turns them into some bizarre creature?

Cure 04-05-2011 04:00 PM

Just tell me now. Was Mikey genuinely funny or still cowardly and annoying?

We just saw the designs for the "Mutation Chamber".
But it seems that whatever the Krang put in with the being it will mix with it via the mutagen.
We also saw the new Layer! It's sooooooo beautiful!
Wait till you see the new playset Playmates is working on, it trumps anything they've ever done in the past.

He was pretty funny but a bit on the dumb side.
Rose and I spoke up about it though and i'm sure others did as well.
So I hope they change it a bit, but he honestly isn't as bad as he was on the last show.
At least I don't think he was, but I hated 2k3 mikey.
