The first official images from Michael Bay’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reprisal have hit the web, and honestly, they’re not too bad.

Comicbookmovie.com posted the photos from what appears to be the official set on Tuesday.

From the looks of it, Bay’s Ninja Turtles will have less in common with Steve Barron’s 1990 original version of the characters and more in common with the 2003 animated series’ design.

The newest batch of turtles appears to be bulkier, and dressed in more traditional ninja dress, as opposed to a couple of ties wrapped around their elbows and a colourful mask.

From the models Bay and his team have created, the turtles also appear to be taller reincarnations in comparison to their tinier predecessors.

Controversy over the potential Ninja Turtle designs has been stirring online since the project’s announcement.

“Leaked” photos and Halloween costume designs led to questions about whether Bay was going to destroy the beloved group of unique crime fighters through terrible designs.

From the looks of it, people seem pretty relieved with Bay’s aesthetic choice for the turtles, and some have announced they’re even more hyped for the film because of the models.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Bay’s take on the new batch of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or do you hate ‘em?

    So, apparently there’s no association, aside from reptiles and martial arts, and yet he takes ALL the characters, history and personas.
    NICE!

    (NOT)

    He can take a mans absolute dreams and aspirations and RAPE them, then…….wait until the child is born and transgress it too…IN THE A$&

    *sigh*

    THIS IS WHY MANY writers and film makers are nervous – SO MANY BRILLIANT characters and stories COULD be made, but they a scared that some JERK with DEEP POCKETS will come along and, in a drunken stupor, decide to SCREW IT ALL his or her own way.

    I think each year we should have a celebrity UFC with FANS vs. Film makers.

    I may be small, but there is no mercy in this small fram.

    Eastman and Lard NEVER wanted the turtles paraded like this, looking like a mix between a DOG and GUY Pearce, and never imagined them being tattooed hipsters. Sheeeeeeeesh.

    LOL

    Makes me wonder if they don’t actually live in the real world or play with toys or watch movies and read comics – OH WAIT! THEY DON’T!
