Sorry for the multiple posts, but I couldn't insert more than 4 per post; nonetheless, I took a bunch of screen caps, which I just shared in multiple posts above.

I know that some people here are complaining about Donnie's head but Soft shell turtles do have a weird shaped head.





Good thing that they didn't add the nostrils to Donnie's design, otherwise Cube would be complaining a lot

Don't most turtles have kind of a flat-ish head though?

They should have added the funny nose... If we're gonna go on the crazier side, then the heck with it, just, uh, "go big or go home." (They can bring the stretcher for Cubed.)



I'm sure magic powered Not-So-Leo is dropping something into the villain's pants, since I think I recall the character going up in flame, but as a still frame... I just see him using this magic nonsense to try to conjure something out of his pants instead.

Exactly, it's not that hard to have some women around, esp in terms of a few non-Turtle female mutants. One of the things I have to take points away from 2012... That for much of it the closest were human girls who still existed as human girls most of the time. The only true non-humans where what, the lizard lady in the photo, and Alopex and Mira, both one time appearances late in the series. (edit: Sorry, Mona, how the heck did I forget you... But lets stick to Earthlings that are around more.)

Even if 'Rise' itself ends up sucking, it would be nice if they'd improve on that a bit with some additional decent female characters. Many versions seem to bring at least something of lasting value to the franchise and that's certainly one area it could contribute if it introduces any new characters worth revising an better openness of having a few more girls around.

For a while I've wished they'd do something like that. A character somewhat like 2012's Spike/Slash, but female. A similarly large turtle, but an older snapper (but now most of that is redundant thanks to Raph), who is possibly a bit more animalistic minded like Leatherhead.


On the other hand... Tang Shen living and becoming Venus herself and being the TMNT's mom would still be kinda fun. Would be kind of adorable.

Not going to lie that sounds awesome also the more I look at this show the more it looks like Motorcity Lite

Wow thanks a lot, I'm loving all these still frames. The more I see of this show's art the more I like it.

The characterization may be too "kiddy" for me to stick with this show but at least it looks good

Some cool background art, but the characters look weirdly drawn.

I think that object is a shock collar and that meatsweats locked it around Leo's neck earlier in that ep. At least that's the impression I have from the gifs and trailer.

I really like Leo's design, I think he's going to be the breakout character of this show. 2012 Leo also broke a lot of new boundaries with him being more nerdy and geeky than usual, I like that Leonardo is being more teenage-like in newest incarnations.

So just like the 2003 series?

I'd prefer he stepped back into his 2003 level of maturity...

Don't get me wrong, I love the geeky side 2012 added, but combining that with a 2003 style Leo would be nice. There's a guy who has his responsibilities, but would also now and then spend time on a forum like this; like most to of us.

Looking at the trailer, I wonder if this would be the first interpretation where the turtles get equal screen-time?

2012 Leo was okay to me. I liked him in the beginning, but he starting getting on my nerves in season 2 and up.
I thought 2003 was alright as well. I was re-watching the 2003 series a few weeks ago and his constant whining made me lost interest. I didn't like 2k3 Mikey and Raph either. Donnie was tolerable though.

Don't they already have April representing women, as well as blacks?

What constant whining? Unless you're talking about Season 4 which he was purposely written differently for the first half, 2k3 Leo didn't do any more whining than any other version.

I guess because he had more screen-time it stood out to me more. I still found him quite annoying though. But that's pretty much how I feel about every 2k3 turtle except Donnie. I think it was during season 2, the city at war arc when he started to irritate me.

He might have a weird head, but his head shape doesn't invoke a softshell which seems like a misstep when the Turtles are unique species of Turtles

After seeing the designs in motion, I found them really nice.
I disliked Raph's and Donnie's designs at first but they actually look good in the show. Though I still find Leo's the best. Mikey is really cute, so it fits him.
