Favorite Shredder design?

Which version of Shredder has the best design, in your opinion? My personal pick is a tie between OT and Nick Shredder...OT because he's so iconic and is usually the first thing that pops into my head when I think of Shredder..and Nick because I really like the scary and intimidating look, along with the super long and sharp blades. So, which is your favorite?

Mirage comics:



OT/Fred Wolf series:



Original movies:



Super Shredder (TMNT II):



Next Mutation:



2K3/4Kids:



IDW comics:



2K12/Nickelodeon:

I voted for 4Kids Shredder. Partly because of nostalgia, but mostly because it has just the right amount of spikiness; i.e., 80s and 90s Shedders are not quite spiky enough, whereas Nick Shredder is a little too spiky. Also, I like the sash better than the cape.

OT Shredder for me.

IDW and Nick come close second.

I'd say it's a close call between the IDW Shredder and the 2K3 Shredder. Those are the ones that I feel look the most menacing

While I really do like the IDW, 1990 Movie Shredder and 2k3 Shredder, the original wins because, well... it's original.
Definitely the most ninja-esque of the Shredder designs, The outfit looks practical and intimidating without being too over the top (2k3, Super Shredder and Nick Shredder looking at You) and while having one of the best colors for the outfit, tying it in with the Foot Clan (That awesome dark maroon). If it wasn't for the slightly large/awkward helmet in 1990 I would have chosen that one.
While the OT is iconic, it's a variation of the Comic, and nobody likes Next Mutation Shredder. Not even Next Mutation Shredder likes himself...

This, just not the nostalgia part. 2k3 Shredder is the perfect balance and looks really evil.

The Nick Shredder's blades and gaurds, I guess you can call them (the actual metal hes wearing) are just too bulky. I know its to keep in style with the turtles bulky forearms and shins but its too big. Plus extra blades pop out? Its just too much. The scar on his face is little cliche too.

Mirage, followed close by IDW. A nice third is Nick Shredder.

Mirage Shredder follows "less is more", it's not over-the-top ridiculous with the spikes or a full cover armor, it's basically a modified Foot uniform.

IDW is very much similar in the vein of Mirage, it's simplistic and practical looking, and the scarf is pretty cool.

Nostalgia-wise, probably the original movie... but I voted for IDW. It just seems to get everything right.

IDW Shredder Easily. Why even make the next mutation shredder an option?

My favorite is the 4Kids design. I prefer the original design featured through the first part of the second season to the ones featured in Rogue In The House and the Back To The Sewer season/Turtles Forever.

Voted for OT Shredder as I've always had a soft spot for his design, but IDW was a really close second. Nick and 4kids seem too over the top, and Mirage and 1st movie just seem to be lacking slightly (in my opinion). I'm a simple but striking kind of gal, I guess.

The movies, simply because it was cool seeing a real visual Shredder.

Also, Shredder was in The Next Mutation? Huh...shows how much I cared...

based souly on design

2k3 4kids hands down, and you cant really count TNM because of how brief but it does deserve to be up there. this seems vaguely similar to my favorite version thread.
