Wow. Those costumes definitely are similar to how the show will look, which is cool.

Raph is wearing his weapons on his back...?

I'm starting to notice that what bother's me more about Don's design,isn't the gap,but the shape of his head.

Pretty hokey and the music sounds porno-esque, but the costumes are cute.

heres a picture i found of on the web of their booth.
It says the preview is today!

So Chris, if you go, make sure to tell us EVERY THING you see, EVERYTHING. And most of all, tell us how the animations looks.

Anyone think this could possibly be online after the event?


Heres where I got the picture from http://nickalive.blogspot.com/2012/0...r-tina_25.html

Just on the train back now. Will do a longer post later when I've had chance to straighten my thoughts out and remember it properly (I'm terrible at organising my thoughts and writing them down on an iPhone, I need a bigger screen).

I've tweeted a few pictures at TMNTMaster on Twitter, I'll take a few more when I get home as Kevin very kindly did some sketches for me and I bought an incredible Leo piece from him. There was an absolutely beautiful piece he'd just done of Eastman TMNT and the new Nick TMNT but sadly I couldn't afford it (great value though as it was amazing). He is probably the nicest guy I've ever had the pleasure of meeting at a convention, really friendly and so generous with his time and talent (he signed and sketched for free!)

Saw the new toys, even better in person, probably my favorite TMNT toys ever from Playmates, I actually think I might even like the look of them more than NECAs!

Toys are due in January over here (due to some licensing stuff I believe, they just missed out on having them on the shelves for Christmas) but best news is show is due here in October this year!!!

Panel was incredible! I'll post more details later but the footage looked great. It did have anime vibe at times but it had a feeling of moving comic book panels in the way it moved between shots. We got a very good look at the TMNT, a decent look at the Foot Soldiers and The Kraang, and brief glimpses of Splinter and a very menacing Shredder. I can't wait for this show!!

I'll go into more detail once I get in, but I will say that I think Kevin reassured a lot of people (he sounds more involved than I thought he'd be) when he said that the show really captures the heart of the Turtles. His kids like it and he says they're always the biggest critics

This just landed in my feed reader:

Kevin Eastman On The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles And Our First Impressions Of Some Footage

I’m not down at the MCM Expo today but that Shaw Williams character is and she called me up to fill me in on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presentation and following Q&A with Kevin Eastman.

She’s rushed off her feet down there, but she’s passed me her notes to misinterpret wildly.

Let’s start with the footage, which comes from Nickelodeon’s upcoming carton reboot. Proof that it’s a reboot, if proof be need be? Hannah believes episode one to be an origin story, showing the turtles “coming up to the surface of the world for the first time.”

It wasn’t clear if the footage screened was from this episode, or if it was clear, Hannah is an idiot and didn’t pick up on it. She said that the animation was good, but some of the writing was a bit off. This she blamed on the use of Michaelangelo as a forced comic relief.

Having seen The Krang in action, Hannah tried to describe their squishy brain in a cyber body look by saying that they were cyber bodies with just a squishy brain thing inside. She did confirm, however, that we’re looking at The Krang, emphasis on the The. This is a whole race, not a one-off Krang character.

The series’ main villain, she confirmed, was Shredder.

One of the points of reinvention was the new April O’Neill who is, now, a young girl. The reason for this, according to Eastman, was that they thought about it for a bit and decided, actually, having a thirty-something lady hanging around with these teenage boys was actually kind of creepy. Less creepy is a human teenage girl hanging out with a bunch of mutated turtles, of course. I suppose that’s the conceit of the piece; that they’re just boys, really, at a subtext level.

The music in the show is going to be hip hop, drum and bass and dubstep. Will the beloved theme tune be coming back? Eastman refused to answer, saying that he liked the original tune, and… Yeah, who are we kidding. He’d have just said “No,” if it wasn’t. I expect there’s a new hip-hop theme coming.

Maybe, just maybe, that’s got something to do with Kid Cudi? Would make a kind of sense.

NEWSFLASH: The cartoon series is going to be supported by a new toy line. Hannah tells me:

The party van is coming back and a motorbike which converts into stealth mode, which basically means it gets a tortoiseshell on top.

Where the heck is that a stealth mode? A beach in Malaysia?

Eastman was also asked about the in-development Ninja Turtle movie. He said that he likes what he has seen – though what this is was not clear. It may have been concept art, test footage, script pages, pre-viz or anything. He didn’t clarify what involvement he has with the film, so it could be as simple as him being on the payroll as chief Man Who Says He’s Seen Some Stuff And We Don’t Need To Worry.

Specifically in respect of the new, alien-world origin calculated for the Turtles, Eastman said that “it won’t get in the way.”

So there we go. “The animation looked quite good” was the bit I wanted to hear, and I did. Look forward to checking it out myself. [source]

Awesome! Thanks for sharing! Did you take any pics or vids or was it not allowed?
