Do they really have much faith in this character that they think he can carry the season, over Shredder who will probably come later? At the least it confirms he uses mutagen and not magic.
I agree about the new group shot; it looks good

We know Draxum uses mutagen, but we don't yet know if it's magical in origin or not

Overall, everything about Baron Draxum (name and design for example) really gives me a Lord Dregg vibe, right down to having an insect army.

I'll take it, being a fan of Lord Dregg, but I'm not sure how others here feel about it.

I wonder how the Foot Clan comes into play. I wonder if Baron was a Foot Soldier before he got mutated.

New Group Shot

Raph is definitely large! Raph in size comparison with the others is bigger than I thought he would be.

He is the total size of the other three combined. From the left shoulder of Leo to the right shoulder of Don. That’s a big dude! And April is easily able to sit on him. And his legs compared to the others, dang.

Now I’m not saying any of that is good or bad. Just an observation/thought.

Is it a title? Or just his first name?

I was thinking maybe he's the baron of the mystical land under NYC?

But it's more likely just a name/title that sounded cool to the showrunners

I don't really see a problem with it being a name. Baron has been used as a name before. I've even known more than one girl named Princess.

I don't personally care for Draxum's design, but there's no denying he'd fit right in among other baddies from Red Sky or Fast Forward. There's a precedent for his aesthetic.

People are just desperate for anything to hate on. God forbid a kids cartoon give a villain a name that is simply for the sake of sounding cool, evil, or powerful.

And I've met a girl named Punkin (as in "Pumpkin", not "punking"). Just because it's been used as a name doesn't mean it should be a name

I'm ambivalent on Draxum's design for now but I do like the name; it most definitely sounds cool

I love Baron Draxum's design, it's much better than I could've imagined.

The group shot looks awful.

What do you mean modern, he looks like a character who belongs in an 80s cartoon like He-man, Voltron and Thundercats.

OT, so far I'm not feeling his design it feels so out of place in a TMNT show. He looks too clean and regal for my liking and I personally don't care for the "Baron" since it feels too European. Now you can also make an argument that the writers want to create a villain who wants to stand out from the other rogues in the past and sure he does stand out in a way but so far I'm lukewarm on the design.

First thing my son said when he say the toy 'He looks like Vilgax'
He looks ok, someone else already asked if that was a mask, I wondered the same.

Group shot.... Raph does look a lot bigger but still hard to tell how much from a pose, if he is going to have a tendency to bully then I don't like the physical advantage that goes with that, but guess we have to see what they will do with him.

I like the new character designs so far more than most of the returning characters.

I don't think so. In this artstyle he looks like a character from a modern show.

Raph is a lot bigger then I expected, Playmates really screws the fans over yet again with the toy scales.

Jeez! Isn't Raph a little big?

Not a fan of the eyebrows that Don apparently drew on his mask with a sharpie.

Guys I don't know what to say, this looks all sorts of weird. TMNT in names only. Won't little kids wonder why the turtles they used to watch got completely changed, in appearance, personality and voice? Nick had created a mythology for them already and I'm sad to lose that.
