    Last year, I'd found a poster from around 2005 that features early designs for the Turtles from TMNT. Also, it seems to me that at this point, the title of the film was to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and use a modified version of the logo from the 03' series:

    no no no no no and NOOOOO
    THis is a fan made poster.
    There was a tmnt series cgi pilot made.
    Look here:
    TMNT CGI Pilot - YouTube
    lool familiar, the series was never picked up and the pilot wasn't ever rendered because well they don't do that for pilot due to money
    It looks like someone rendered the pic and made a poster of it

    Weird that Leo's bandana looks dark purple. Either that was a rendering mess up, or there was a plan to make Donatello the leader in the supposed incarnation. :/

    No, this poster isn't fan-made. It was made around 2003-2004 when work started on the film.

    TMNT DVD Bonus- Raphael's Rough House Fight Test - YouTube

    These models were used in the poster as is clearly seen. And the pilot you were talking about, it was only shit-canned because no networks at the time were interested in a CGI Turtles mini-series.

    Nickelodeon did it right with the CG Turtles.

    That looks like Minecraft, My Little Pony, and some cardboard boxes combined and painted up like the Ninja Turtles.



    Just sayin'.

    yes thank you I too think the new cgi series turtles look WAY too box like

    and no, this poster was debunked a long time ago on the turtles boards (and I belong to every one of them) It is fan made thats why the different logos etc.

    If it was fan-made, then why was it reported being spotted around 2003-2004, around the same time work for the film began? And why are the models used in the poster EXACTLY the same as the earlier ones used in the video I just posted?

    This show looks terrible so far in the case of design. I mean why did they get the same design team of shows like The Fairly Odd Parents to do this show?

    number one when it does matter WHEN a fan poster was made if fact if work began on the movie then people were probably gearing up excitement for it and a fan made it, why would a studio make a poster that far in advance?

    number two I don't think it is the same turtles it looks like the turtles in the video I put up

    Why wouldn't they? And how about the RoboCop reboot poster that was released in and around 2010-2011 when the movie isn't coming out until next year? And how do the turtles actually look good (not poorly rendered using a home computer) if a fan made it? And the turtles look exactly like the two in the video that I posted.
