I agree but from what I remember reading the idea was that Donnie spent more time messing with technology and less time training than others. Funny thing is Corey Feldmans voice plus his general portrayal didn't sell that idea at all

Saw the trailer a couple of days ago. The Batman animation looks fine but the TMNT designs leave a lot to be desired. I mean what the hell happened to Don? Did he get his face squashed between subway carriage doors or something?!

I personally wasn't asking for TMNT to meet Batman. Can't wait for TMNT meets WWE next...

The TMNT fans with the absolute highest-level intelligence all post in this place, and let's be honest, collectively this fandom is a pretty "C+" kinda group. And that's generally thanks to a select number of "A+ Students" who skew the curve upwards.

The fact that they get so hard for stories that read/play like a little kid narrating his action figure wars kinda says it all, don't ya think?

"An' THEN, an' then ALL the Turtles and ALL the Robins all teamed up with Batman an' like, TOTALLY beat up like a BAZILLION Foot Soldiers and like ALL Batman's bad guys too, and THEN they all teamed up and fought Darth Vader and all the Star Wars guys! PEW PEW, KABOOOOOOOOM!!! AWESOME!!!!"
It's okay man, it's okay man (pats Leo's shoulder).

This along with the Turtles playable in Injustice 2 as DLC was great.

The fact that this is happening at all is mind blowing. Go tell yourself this would happen back in 2010 and you'd laugh it off as someones random fanfic ideas.
There was a THIRD IDW crossover???? I only know of the first one, the one with Bane and the TAS/Nick one. What was the fourth one about?

To be fair, it was based on a pre-existing comic. They didn't just pull it out of nowhere.

Oh sure but I was partly referring to the comic as well.

Hey you guuuyyys...

Just checked Amazon too and not seeing it, but I happened to be poking around Barnes & Noble for any TMNT stuff in general and they've got a pre-order up. With a 17% discount!

For British fans

Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DVD released June 3rd it can be pre ordered on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Batman-Teen...4147288&sr=8-1

You can also pre order it on ITunes but it doesn't mention the release date.

Also it was shown at Wondercon yesterday but as I had to go to bed, I don't know what reactions it got.

So there won't be any Elephant Bane. Poo.
Quote:
A lot of the mutations in the comics remained true, from the Scarecrow's transformation into a crow to the Joker becoming a cobra, but there were a few big differences, like having Bane turn into a jaguar instead of an elephant. Also, screenwriter Halpern-Graser reached out to Tynion to tell him that they were changing Poison Ivy into a mutant Venus fly trap because some people mutated into plants in the TMNT world. "He later admitted to us that he would have done that had he known."
I'm all in favor of the Poison Ivy Fly Trap rather than Mantis. That seems like it could look amazing if properly animated.

Granted fan opinion can vary from 'official' reviews, but setting at 8+ sounds promising.

Had sorta hoped someone around here might have hit up the con that premiered it.

They want to do plant mutations, just because the 2012 cartoon?

Lame.

Weird because the crossover comics played fast and loose with continuity "rules" to begin with. I definitely think Fly Trap Ivy will look cool, but I can't imagine Jaguar Bane being as visually interesting as Elephant Bane.

Nice looking piece. I'm only mildly interested but if I see it at Target I might grab that.

Heh, yeah the false advertising is shameless.

I wonder how much more those cases would cost at retail if the steel were the real deal.

EDIT:
Now available for digital pre-order on VUDU:

That's kind of weird to do with Bane. Isn't his whole modus operandi to be as hella strong as possible? An elephant I think would better convey that sense of power and intimidation better then a jaguar.
