Oh tough choice, let's see now, I like the Mirage design, the 4kids design, the IDW design and the Nickelodeon design.

I don't like the FW design, the movie designs or the Next Mutation design. The FW design looks a bit uninspired, the movie design looks like a bobble-head, Super-Shredder seems cool at first but I don't know and the Next Mutation suit just seemed so cheap.

Back to the ones I like:

The Mirage design was simple but the glowing eyes really sell it.

The 4kids design, well there are four but let's begin with Utrom Shredder and assume that's what people mean, the full metal armor and red eyes imples power and fierceness while the sash gives him a sense of style. Karai Shreddder is the same just with a feminine shape, the Demon Shredder just badass with that tattered cape but is otherwise too similar to the Utrom Shredder except for the colors, Cyber Shredder was prett garrish to look at but servicable.

The IDW suit is not very heavy on the metal, a lot more cloth but I really admire that since it does enforce the important idea that he's a NINJA and NOT A SAMURAI. The black and red is a classic villain color scheme at this point and I will admit that it works a lot better than purple or blue, you might call it a cliché but I still enjoy those colors.

The Nickelodeon design I will admit, is the weakest one of the ones I like, it goes back to being primarily purple, the gauntlets/ankle pads (?) seem too big and clunky for my tastes and I don't like the design on the helmet for some reason. However, like with the IDW design, I do enjoy that he mostly wears cloth instead of armor (even if it's a bit undermined by the gauntlets) and the burn marks are neat.

So really it comes down to the 4Kids and IDW designs. Hmmm, well I really do enjoy that IDW Shredder actually reminds me of a Ninja instead of a samurai and as much I love red eyes, fierce armor and gorgeous sashes, it's still more important for an artist to convey their ideas properly...

IDW shredder it is, simply for looking more like a ninja than he does a samurai.

IDW. Mostly due to the practicality of a fabric mask over a faceplate. I prefer a more minimalist Shredder design.

Nick Shredder with the ridiculously large forearm and calf gauntlets is easily my least favorite.

Voted for Fred Wolf Shredder. I also loved the design for the original TMNT movie Shredder.

OT, Mirage and original movie are the best. Michael Bay's is cool looking, but far too futuristic looking and technical. He's supposed to be a martial arts expert, not a Transformer.

My favorite design is IDW, followed closely by the Movie and OT versions. 2K3 was awesome, but a little too heavy in the armor.

You had to watch the very first episode of Next Mutation to see Shredder as they wrote him out of the show right out of the gates and was never seen again.

Oh, I really like 1987 series design of Shredder. He looks awesome, both with or without his mask. I love his purple cape and his whole wardrobe.

2003 Shredder looked dark and powerful. Couldn't connect his civil appearance to when he's in armor, though. But I love his longish hair and civil appearance.

It's tough. The original is classic, but I also dig the FW and IDW designs. Movie Shredder is pretty good...probably the best we can expect from a live action movie.

lol Next Mutation shredder gets no love... which is not surprising as it it the only thing in Next Mutation that everyone hates, both people who like and dislike the show. Shredder needs to be badass and that just isn't the case with Next Mutation Shredder.

I feel like I should say NM Shredder is my fave now, just so the poor guy gets some love... but I just can't. Even my love for NM can only take me so far!

I voted for the 2K3 Shredder. He does look creepy and menacing, but I like the 1990 movie design of him as well.

Voted Super Shredder, but if I'm completely honest I really liked the 2014 Shredder.

Let your hate flow over me. It's ok.

OT or IDW for me too. My vote went to IDW but it's right there lol
OT is classic, I can't hate him. But the IDW Shredder is handled so well!

I dont think 2014 Shredder did too much... and in a fight he was no martial artist. Resorting to slashing and stomping and throwing
