I have that poster but it's the regular red... unless they made two versions?

Pretty sure I had seen the Dark Horse minis and had one of the role playing books, as well as a calendar, and so knew that that's how they looked in the comics (which I hadn't read or paid much attention to).

I think the 1989 Nintendo game had more in common with the original comics than it did the original cartoon, and the cover being one of the reasons why. I consider the first game to be the comics game, and TMNT II: The Arcade Game to be the cartoon game.

I liked it a lot too. The artists who drew the originals were...surprised when I showed it to them.

I don't know if I had read the Mirage stuff when that game came out - I don't think I had because I remember seeing that panel and having a moment of realisation. The thing is though, there was a lot of weird variation in merch at the time, so I wasn't confused by the red masks any more than I was by the different skin tones on the figures.

Yeah like I said, felt bad doing it. But I enjoy doing terrible mask swaps now and then. I did an all reds and no pupils edit of the Ninja Rap tape at some point.

I don't think I had an experience of either the Mirage series or the first video game's boxart back then. That being said, I always was bamboozled by how the video games featured the turtles fighting more like actual ninjas against villains that were competent, and the cartoons featured...a sitcom.

That's only in the PAL/USA versions

If you live in Poland/Russia/China and had and knew the japanese who would be shocked as to why:

-There's no Krang
-Why is April Splinter's dauther
-Why the TMNT theme isn't played

The reason the other is becuase...the show was beggining to air in japan, so Konami mixed the comic (hence why Turtles having no pupils) and cartoon (Splinter being human, Rocksteady, Bebop, Footclan, Technodrome) into one, and a japanese feel to it

I was like 5-6 years old when I first played that game? I had noticed indeed that the Turtles all had red bandanas like Raphael did in the FW cartoon... but I didn't really care. I was, you know, busy playing the game. Well, ore mile trying to play the game since it was hard as hell and I kept dying.

Of all the things wrong with that game, its cover certainly isn't one of them.
