Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Final Movie Designs

It has been a long year of speculations and expectations regarding the upcoming  live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Fanboys and girls seemingly got over (quite quickly) the casting of "actor" Megan Fox as popular reporter April O'Neil as concerns turned to the design of the foursome themselves.

You were expecting more from Michael Bay?
Last week, a Halloween costume version of Michelangelo had fans fainting onto their keyboards. The design resembled something your aunt might draw if she had never heard of the comic book or movies and you asked her to "draw your version of a Turtle-Man."

In retrospect, it could have been worse…

These images certainly inspire a lot more confidence when compared with the children's costume. Nostalgia may have us stuck to the perfectly rounded heads of the comics, cartoons, and previous films; this new design, however, goes slightly more realistic. I'm not a huge fan, according to my knee-jerk reaction, but I think this could not only look good to me in a month but also justify some rough-and-gritty action scenes in the story.

The Shredder design is sure to also create some conversations. This is a design poster and not a final product, so things may be scaled down slightly, but if this were a comic book, then he looks pretty bad-ass to me. However, if the new goal is function over form, then this design is a little overkill.

I can't wait to hear what you all think of these images. Do we like our turtles smooth and round like the cartoons or rough and gritty like this upcoming movie appears to offer?
