Most kids don't really watch it on TV anyway, the whole Nick show is online in numerous places streaming online legally.

I will never understand Nick's treatment of that show after a bit, letting it air/premier all of ONCE on the regular channel before throwing it onto Nicktoons. Gee, no wonder some kids might lose interest and forget about if, to them, the show doesn't even appear to exist. You can't sell your product if you're going to hide it from your consumer. Maybe they'll treat this next crappier one with the respect that the better previous one actually deserved.
I do. I just had limited interest in the series and even less in Rise of the Turtles. My TMNT interest shifted towards IDW.

From the few clips of them we've seen I really like how they "poof" when they're stuck. It reminds me of Zelda enemies, instead of death scenes they "poof" when Link kills them.

Origan ninjas are awesome too, it's a nice change to keep things interesting and new. The best thing about robot/paper foot ninjas is you know they can slice them up all they want.
What was the point with Nickelodeon Footbots, when the turtles could already hack and slash the Kraang's robots into pieces.

Because Shredder needed his own army too, duh. The kraangbots weren't his troops.

I still see no point for them. The Kraang were in so many episodes so the Shredder episodes would still work without the turtles hacking and slashing.

After now having a first ep with them... Eh, no better, no worse, but maybe a bit more boring. The concept is interesting at face value, but it isn't much of a fight if they're destroyed with one small strike.

Instead of intending them be some form of foot soldiers, it might have made more sense that they were created and used as a distraction against Turtles who have not learned to focus on the important things in front of them; let them play pinata while the bad guys do their work. But then that can only last so long until they catch on.

I don't care for the paper thing going on but it's something coming from a show that has the mystical element etc so, just where they wanted to go.

2012 had footbots as well as Kraang droids so the turtles could splice the foot too I imagine.
