Click through for a good look at Shredder, Splinter, April O'Neil, what appears to be a Foot Clan soldier, and a trenchcoated Raphael from the first series of TMNT 2014 movie toys.

It's starting to look more and more like the new, Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie could be one gigantic exercise in trolling an audience.
The newest evidence of that comes from the casting department. Apparently Jackass star and former Duke of Hazzard Johnny Knoxville will be the voice of Leonardo and Tony Shaloub, who played the title character on Monk for eight seasons, will be Splinter.
I don't know, you guys. I'm just reporting it.
Remember those LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie sets we saw at Toy Fair 2014 but weren't allowed to photograph? Two of them have finally rolled online at Canadian retailer Indigo. Hit the jump to see the Big Rig Snow Getaway and Turtle Van Takedown sets, along with their official product descriptions which may contain spoiler-ish information about the movie's plot.
For some the August 8 premiere of the new live action/CGI hybrid Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie can't come soon enough. For the rest of us, here's confirmation that the Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed take on Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's Green Machines is pretty much what you've been expecting ever since you found out the TMNT would have... lips. They just kinda look like a bunch of Shreks, man. Thanks for starting our day off right, Today show.
We've gotten quite a few looks at the upcoming live action/CGI hybrid Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie over the past few months, but as of Toy Fair 2014 Playmates' corresponding action figure line was still under wraps. Chinese language site ACToys has posted new photos of the figures, however, giving us all a look at the hoodie-waisted, puka shell-rockin' quartet in all their ball jointed glory. We're painfully trying to reserve full judgement until trailer footage from the movie arrives in April -- and maybe even through the film's August 8 release date -- but for now we can safely say this much about director Jonathan Liebesman's heroes in a half shell: Jim Lee's 1996 TMNT figure designs were cooler.
You can see what you think of the upcoming figures from Playmates below.
Photos of toys from the new, Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie have been hard to come by, considering all the heavy security at Toy Fair 2014 last month.
So it looks like, at least for now, we're just going to have to settle for the cake topper versions of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael. Are you ready to see some plastic turtles who are wearing shoes? Click on through.
Yesterday, a few photos leaked of early designs from the upcoming Michael Bay produced live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Today, a picture has leaked showing all four turtles, possibly giving us a better idea of what the final design for the characters will be in the movie. And, before we get into anything else, we need to deal with one unavoidable fact: the turtles all have lips, at least two of them have human looking noses, and that is f***ing creepy.
Since essentially the very moment that the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was public knowledge, it's been an object of intense fan skepticism. Would the characters look weird, what with their strange new origin story? What will the CGI/live action hybrid look like in action?
Well, there are now actual images of character designs for the turtles and a heavily-armored Shredder from the Jonathan Liebesman-directed movie in their pixel-perfect glory. Judge for yourself.
