That's More Like It: Shredder And Leonardo From The New Ninja Turtle Movie

January 29, 2014


Remember that kid's Ninja Turtle costume I posted last week that had us all scared Michael Bay's turtles were going to look like total shit? "I wasn't scared." That's because you are not a namby-pamby like I am. I haven't slept since I saw that picture. "Wow, you need to get a life." I need to get a lot of things, the first and foremost of which is a doctor who will actually prescribe drugs instead of meditation verses to repeat to myself. This cough isn't getting any better. So, maybe the Ninja Turtles are actually going to look decent. That's a relief. Maybe I'll actually be able to get some shut-eye tonight. Well, provided my roommate remembers to move his bed. You know how many times I've woken up to his headboard banging against the wall? Too many to count. And you know how many of those times he was actually with a girl? ZILCHEROONI. That guy masturbates like an earthquake.

Keep going for a couple shots of Shredder and a closeup of Michael Bay playing with his Ninja Turtle toys.


Thanks to Rene and my buddy Terry, who both offered to take me to the movie opening night. It's a date!

    Good thing their masks are so big, otherwise people might recognize who they really are.

    Michael Bay stop fucking my childhood

  • FryanBlores

    I'd like to point out that Shredder might be an incomplete or design-in-progress as we see a poster of him rather than a model like the other two.

  • Must admit, like many I've been a bit wary of this film. On one hand, I loved the turtles as a kid and would like to see a more modern film with them in. On the other hand, it's being made by Michael Bay. So how long into the film before the whole cave gets blown up by the Foot and we're treated to a slow motion shot of Splinter diving into what looks like suspiciously clean sewer-water while fire and turd-explosions cascade overhead?

  • I like that they still stick to the ninja masks... as a means of... eh... stealth?

    Police: "So you are saying you have no idea who rescued you"
    Man: "Nope. No idea."
    Police: "Was he a giant turtle with human limbs"
    Man: "Well yes, but his identity was concealed under his ninja mask"

    Turn off all the damn ads on this site or give people the option to mute them idiots!

  • DrZanz

    He needs ads to run the site. If you don't want to see them, block them. L2internet

    When I play internet, I mute it. It lets me focus my skills on the keybindings.

    Wait, does Leo's wrist guard say 'Nike'?

  • Lurker111

    looks like a baseball batting shin guard

  • Erswi

    Biggest problem is that the armor/gear that Leo is wearing screams Samurai... not Ninja.

  • Football pads and a nike soccer shin guard on his wrist screams samurai?

  • But it does appear to only be on one arm. At least on the top picture. Besides, wouldn't ninjas and samurais have emerged in the same area at around the same time? If they were, then I think it'd be safe to assume they'd use the same types of armor adapted to slightly different purposes. But IDK, I'm not a virgin.

  • Izakk133

    The Samurai came first. The Ninja were formed as a bid to overthrow the Samurai.

  • grimbldoo

    Why do you assume historians are virgins?

  • I don't. I assume that most people who would comment on Ninja Turtles posts with "expert opinions" about ninjas, are.

    It's not what they are, it's the way they are used.
