The New TMNT Series

Postby Ult_Sm86 » Mon Oct 08, 2012 5:16 pm

So what do we think of the New TMNT series?

I've seen some of it and so far, besides Splinter's design, I appreciate most of the changes.


I wish it wasn't so "kiddified" all the time, but I like that they use their weapons more actively. Granted it's against vegetation-monsters, cyborgs, etc... but at least there's "blood" (oil) and such things. The direction of the show seems to be more mature too.

An April O'Neil & Donatello romance is... interesting. Impractical, but... I'd like to see him stand up for his emotions against the likes of Casey Jones.

Haven't seen any episodes yet, will try and catch it when it gets to SA shores in a year or so, but of what I have seen, I do agree with you on the "kiddified" part. Then again sometimes I wish they wouldn't kiddify most of the cartoons you see today. :\

Haven't caught any episodes lately. Has it improved or worsened? I heard Casey made his debut in just episode 5, is he relevant to the turtles yet?

nope, no casey in episode 5, it was baxter stockman, and he didn't turn into a fly, this baxter is just a ticked off employee of a bank that made a robot suit to get revenge.

I'm following the shows and frankly I love the animation. I haven't seen tv animation done this well at all. I love their design, the humour is sometimes very nicely done, however I'm not a big fan of the kiddiefied villians.



I was hoping the previous episode was the making of bebop and rocksteady. it wasn't, it's two others, a dog and a fish

Well I know Casey Jones has been in there 'cause there's a toy for him already! LMAO!

But that's good to know they're being original while trying to do jazz it up. I have to agree, I love the animation as well.

I really can't remember ever seeing Casey or heard him being mentioned. At all. Then again, they probably made the toys in advance before the shows were aired. Remember, they don't make up these stories and animate them in a week, this all is done months in advance.

That's true, but I gotta figure... if the "Volume 1" or "Season 1" toys are out, and in that set is everyone we've seen... and Casey Jones?

At least I think it was Casey Jones :shifty

Now I'm not even sure.

I'll try to find 'em.

I saw the set (what I believe was the whole set?) early on Black Friday. As always, Splinter looks silly. I don't like his design in this series.

Here we go, from PlayMates toyline.

.... Metalhead, huh? Missed that.

Metalhead was adorable.

SOme people actually like splinter's new design. He's more of a father than a sensei in the show

*looks at the toys* They didn't get the look of the turtles right. They're not angular enough like the show's. It's like making a batman forever with nipples and clooney jaw, and selling it as a dark knight rises toy.

Probably an attempt to get the old-school fans to buy and collect.
