Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

If you new designs for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles haven't tickled your fancy, you'll be happy to know that the look for their arch nemesis Shredder and their mentor Splinter are right on the money. We've seen brief glimpses of both in the first and second teaser trailers, but thanks to some new concept art, we get a good look at the designs for the latest iteration of the characters that started in comic books. Idle Hands got ahold of an early copy of of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History, and in the book there's two images showing off Shredder with blades all over, and a very realistic Splinter. Look!

Here's the two concept art for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Idle Hands (via ComingSoon):

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder (William Fichtner) and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Clash of the Titans) and written by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol). Paramount Pictures releases the film everywhere on August 8th.

Except the Splinter in the tv spot had a fu the concept art isn't 100% correct?

Concept Splinter looks WAY better than final design Splinter. Can't just be me, right?

I totally agree. With a suit that well armored and with so many pointy blades, you almost don't even need to know martial arts haha

no one has seen what he looks like in the movie... just a quick back shot.. and a stupid toy.. so im not getting all the fuss. I think as soon as he is in front of everyone on screen a live and moving around people will be amazed

Could have sworn they actually did show a quick glimpse of his face in one of the trailers. Possibly the international trailer. I did not like the fu-manchu and the hair style. But hey, it may grow on me.

The back of his head.. Shredder saw his face lol.
