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.

I find when things are dark, I can't see what's happening...
nailbiter111 - 1/21/2014, 4:46 PM
darker it is, easier to make the CGI look good.
nailbiter111 - 1/21/2014, 4:47 PM
case in point: pacific rim. which was great VFX wise, but would've been interesting to see in the daytime. Just saying.

I'm curious to see how this turns out.

Really looking forward to the trailer.
ALegendaryPanda - 1/21/2014, 5:00 PM
Are we ever getting a trailer for this movie?
FirstAvenger - 1/21/2014, 5:02 PM
nailbiter111 - 1/21/2014, 5:06 PM
ALegendaryPanda - nope. they said they aren't releasing images or trailer for this film. it will just be released without any fanfare. so sad. boo hoo hoo hooo hoo
cetotheizzo - 1/21/2014, 5:08 PM
I want this movie to turn out more like Transformer's 3 and not like Transformers 2. The difference being number 2 sucked hard and number 3 was cool.
Interestein - 1/21/2014, 5:09 PM
I'm actually excited for this.
ALegendaryPanda - 1/21/2014, 5:14 PM

Well I guess we'll all just have to go in blind then! Lol

Although I'm surprised nothing has leaked yet, especially for a big movie like this.

not really a fan of the turtles,the comic was good way back in the 80s but that's about it.
campblood - 1/21/2014, 6:25 PM
basing how they look off minifigs is not a very good reference
Andree24 - 1/21/2014, 6:32 PM
What the heck is this movie gonna look like? It's got train wreck written all over it. But I'am curious.
Inhuman - 1/21/2014, 6:33 PM
Im one of the biggest Turtle fans of all time. I hope we get a good trilogy
ibravosp5 - 1/21/2014, 6:34 PM
We just need some first looks at the turtles... I'm pretty sure that there are at least some cgi-ified versions of the turtles if not finalized.
acidbath - 1/21/2014, 6:37 PM
Yes it was confirmed on micheal bays twitter no trail or images just one still shot of an explosion with the word turtle in front of it.
