New Descriptions of Michael Bay's "Darker" TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (Via Toys)

Sources for Bleeding Cool and Brick Fanatics were at the London Toy Fair today and even though photography was forbidden they did jot down some details of the toys for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Which are darker!



At the London Toy Fair today, LEGO presented some of their brand new playsets. The playsets that we're most interested in, were the ones for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninnja Turtles. An official look at these characters is still a closely guarded secret, so everyone in attendance was warned not to take pictures of the movie playsets. The websites, Bleeding Cool and Brick Fanatics, had some their own foot clan members on the scene and they have some interesting new tidbits for you to chew on. Oh, and perhaps the most interesting tidbit is that the character Karai seems to have a meaty role, as she has her own mini-figure/playset. For those you that aren't familiar with Karai, she is a high-ranking member of the Foot Clan, who sometimes is portrayed as having a familial connection to Shredder. She first appeared in Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's comic book (1992).
There were three movie sets from the Turtles movie: Turtle Van Takedown, Big Rig Snow Escape and The New Turtle Lair. The Turtle movie minifigs were on display and so close to the cartoon themed ones the design differences were obvious. They were certainly darker, literally darker, a darker shade of green and chunkier.

The Splinter figure was chunkier too and had shortened legs to make sure he stands lower than Turtle height. None of them looked too friendly either. You certainly won’t mistake the movie and TV versions of these characters.

I asked a little about and was told some things about the other sets that I didn’t get too good of a look at. One is a motorbike chase with Karai, another is a submarine set and there was also the Turtles’ T-Rocket too, but as far as I could tell, these were tie-ins to the show and not the movie. - Bleeding Cool


TMNT movie sets will be Turtle Van Takedown, Big Rig Snow Getaway, Turtle Lair New figs: Leatherhead, Spiderbytez, Kirby Bat, Karai (movie and show versions). Differently styled Turtles in the movie sets, much darker. Splinter has short legs. - Brick Fanatics


NINJA TURTLES will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman ("Wrath of the Titans"), and produced by Michael Bay ("The Rock"). The script was written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, based on characters created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The cast includes: Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Danny Woodburn as Splinter, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Will Arnett as Vernon and William Fichtner as Shredder. It lands in theaters June 6th, 2014.
