My friend Leo (irony?) brought these images to my attention on his Facebook wall. They are the work of Dave Rapoza and the guy is seriously talented. Just check out his full lineup of TMNT characters in the below gallery.
Seriously, why isn’t this guy a part of the new film? With designs like these, presenting cartoonish characters taken seriously on a level that both adults and kids can appreciate, this would be a Hollywood adaptation that we’d actually want to see! If the filmmakers like the idea of aliens so much, can we get them seats on the next satellite launch off planet (permanently)?
Check these out and try arguing that these wouldn’t make a bad ass TMNT movie:
