The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have gone through a lot of changes over the years but their latest incarnation is alienating some fans. ACToys has posted some disturbing looking photos of the new movie toyline by Playmates, simply titled “Ninja Turtles.”
Since the TMNT toys debuted in 1987, the turtles have become progressively more human so much so that now wearing street clothes as part of their uniform because nothing strikes fear into your enemies like a hoodie tied around your waist. Their prominent beaks have been scaled back giving them less comical facial expressions but physically they’ve bulked up to ridiculous proportions.
A webcomic by cartridgecomic.com parodies their appearance with a movie quote from Master Splinter, who tells the turtles they must live in the sewers because their appearance would frighten people.
What do you think, are the changes are too radical?
