Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, directed by Jonathan Liebesman and coming this summer, has been a surprisingly tight-lipped production. Very little has actually leaked, other than Vanilla Ice desperately wants to be in it, and the old script was unsurprisingly terrible. But nothing stays under wraps forever, and the design of the Turtles has just leaked, via a crappy Halloween costume.
First dug up by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fansite, here’s the full costume in all its, ah, glory:
I’m still getting over Michelangelo beating up Kick-Ass and taking his pants. Joking aside, the design isn’t terrible or even actually that far from the original Turtles, really. Let’s face it, as long as they have the right weapons and the masks are either properly color-coded, most people will be happy.
Mostly it’s the sheer amount of crap on this costume that gives me pause. So, Michelangelo has sunglasses, a douchey surf-dude medallion and two leather straps across his chest, in addition to a loin cloth, board shorts, and what appear to be Chucks? Man, remember when the Turtles just had weapons and a leather belt?
True, we’d like to see, you know, a script, or a trailer, or any indication that this movie is actually coming out this year, since August is not actually that far away. But we’re sure that’ll turn up sooner rather than later.
