New TMNT 2007 Poster

There is a new, crisper, better saturated poster for the new TMNT movie with Leo's eye slightly visible in the upper right corner. Very cool.

[Thanks to Rat King for the link!]

I think they'll look right by the time the movie comes out. That's probably just a sample art kinda thing. I just hate waiting the 2 years!

His legs and arms make him look like a Ninja frog. What the hell could a Ninja Frog do, I guess he could jump real high...and swim pretty fast...oh, oh and maybe it could wrap it's big tongue around the Foot and squeeze the living bejesus out of them...GODDAMMIT THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.

I don't see his upper arms and legs changing. This design is obviously based on that of the early issues of Mirage, where the TMNT weren't exactly bodybuilders.

With the exception of that crappy-looking eye, I think he looks great. I don't see what muscle has to do with his ablities anyway.

Im honestly kind of dissapointed I hope they change their mind or something if is this is the way theyre going to look like Im not that amuzed .... I really like them like they look now ....at least they should look a little bit like on the past movies ....and on top of that we have to wait 2 years

I really wish that the CG turtles didnt have pupils and just had the white eyes like the new show. They look so much better that way.

I wish I could see the character turn arounds...

I appreciate what LAXtitan said about leaving the eyes white. Its really all about the eyes when it comes to a characters expression. The white is great for the Cartoon. I kinda feel for live action they probably need some sort of pupil. I can't get over the quality of the eyes in the live action movies, incredibly expressive. I think the pupils need to be very large and watery if this CGI is striving for realistic texturing.

The arm does bother me it must be the wrist section, Modeling character muscles in A program like Maya for computer animation is ridiculously time consuming from the little bit I have done. Maybe they be taking the easy road. Leaving bulk for illusion of muscle beyond the upper bicep. They made them so muscly in the new show maybe they are trying to find a medium between that and the early comic? Wow I need to see more!

The background is looking good.

I worked on the poster a little to give a glimps of that the entire turtle will look like, but I'm not sure how to share it with you guys. Can I email it to someone and them post it?

considering we lived without the turtles for what...like...7 years... i think we can handle a 2 year wait.

I was working with my turtles today and i paid notice to their limbs...i think now if they go with the big forarms and big feet, they look more turtle. Turtles have big feet, where they're aquatic or semi-aquatic...red ear sliders have HUGE feet...makes sense. My wood turtle Donnie has weak looking upper arm and as the arms goes down it widens into big front hands. So the design does make sense. And he is STRONG. He can almost lift his own weight with his arms.

The white pupils effect is great for the cartoon, and it really is cool, but I'd prefer to actually see their eyes in this movie as with all the other movies. From the looks of the poster, it'd be wonderful, and they are so expressive anyway. If you think about it, it'd really be even more effective like that.

Well, they have plenty of test shots. This is from the people who were selling the stills from the production on ebay. They claim that and SDCC a promo short will be shown.
