Yeah me either besides the fact that the new style reminds me of later human Disney cartoons

Girl, you hotlinked again! The TMNT site doesn't allow that. But have no fear, here's the picture you're referring to:


Indeed, much better than that design. yuck.

Anyway, I have to say this... I don't hate them, and there is definately movie influence to them. it all depends how they look when animated.

Personally, I disliked the human designs for the new Spider-man cartoon series at first, but I got used to them pretty quick. So these may look terrible now, but they may look a little different when animated. So let's not forget that/

oh. I thought their size ratios were almost identical. In the current series they were much closer in size but now back to the sewers has casey really bulked up and april a tiny toothpick

It's not identical, but I saw the comparison you were trying to make. I'm just glad 2K8 April doesn't have those thunder-thighs. *shudders*

I'm going to say I like the 2k3 Casey better, he seemed to have more character, but I kind of like the new April design better.

But I want to see what the main stars of the show are going to look like, and how the animation will flow.

Casey looks ok.. but too nice, but eh, we have to see him in action. It could also be April taming him... As for April... she's cute. A bit too skinny but as long as she has a nice ass, it's allllright.

ooh, teenage Casey is hawt To bad we couldn't have gotten this Casey instead of the goof ball one. Teenage April is...alright I think her hips are too wide (or maybe it's just the baggy pants). But I rather like her loose hair style better than the prudish bun she wears in 2k3 version.

April in this new design would be alright if they just gave her a larger bust and pants that aren't so form fitting. She looks like she may be shorter than the turtles now, she's so petite

Also is it me or does she kind of look like the main character from the Winx Club?

I still don't really like the new designs, but I'm sure they will grow on me. If they ruffle up Casey's hair a bit more and give April some looser pants, I'll be happy.

Seriously, what's with the form fitting stuff lately? Is it just me, or is it everywhere?

April's changed too much. >< She looks a little bit like Casey's big sister now.

BTW, anyone like my anime style April/Casey char design?

Oh, 2-D of course. They were clearly going in the same animation direction as we wound up with 2k3. If they meant it as the 3-D CGI series they planned, they would have had at least some wire frames or unrendered mock ups.

That said:

I dunno about you, but the human designs smack of post 1999 DIC entertainment animation to me. I really hate how their stuff looks now. Gadget and the Gadgetinis? I really really hated that look for Penny.
2K3 seems to be sort of the whole Jackie Chan Adventures blocky superheor action look before everyone in the world started copying it religiously. but something about it really had a more 80's action style to it. At least with the women folk.

But I have to say, I do like the designs for the Turtles themselves. unfortunately, I just can't see them as anything but goofy with that look. I really can't picture them looking that way during a more somber, serious moment. Maybe if they were just a tiny bit closer to the original designs. Just... something in the smile throws me off.
