    Hi, first time on Turtles forum and a big fans of TMNT since I was a kid. Since the 2012 show is on break and doing reruns for the moment I have a question:

    Do anyone think the live action movie should take inspiration from the 2012 cartoon like the 1st 2 live action movie took inspiration from the 1980 cartoons, Mirage comics and the Archie Comics? If so which parts of the 2012 cartoon should the movie take inspiration from.
    To me the movie should take from the 2012 movies:

    A.) How the crew made the Turtles look distinctive enough as well as how they remember the "TEENAGE" part or "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES" in the way they act and remember the fact that their brothers. They should borrow the looks from the cartoon for the movie.
    B.)Shredder. He seems like the movie and in a way comic Shredder. I hated when they turned 87 animated incompetent Shredder and when they made 2003 Shredder a Utrom. I like how truly dangerous Shredder of the movie and 2012 cartoon was and how he was more than a match for the Turtles sort of the like in the first issue of the Mirage comics.
    C.) I love how the 2012 cartoon was a darker version/remix of sorts of the 1987 cartoon just like how the movie was sort of a live action version of the 1987 cartoon as well as the Mirage comics. Everything from Splinter's origin(human infected by Rat, Turtle infected by humans, etc)

    And those were just few ideas they could take from the 2012 cartoons. Any one else think they should take a few ideas from the 2012 cartoon?

    Elements from the 2012 show I wouldn't mind seeing in a movie ;

    1. Fishface and Dog Pound

    2. The turtles acting like real teenagers.

    3. The glowing blue look of the retromutagen ooze.

    4. Not feeling Splinter's look, or the man into rat origin, but I do like this Splinter's personality and sarcastic wit and would like to see that portrayed on the big screen.

    5. The turtles using other weapons other than their signature weapons. I think thats one thing this series really touches on, and I like it.

    I think this is easily the best incarnation of Splinter.

    You actually buy him as a ninja master, who could keep teenagers in line.

    I also like that the turtles seem a bit more Japanese, which makes sense, since they're basically culturally Japanese Americans (on account of being raised by a Japanese father). They didn't have to do that, but they did. It's a nice touch.

    In a film, it would be very cool for example, if they had Leonardo and Splinter hold a conversation in Japanese. Or say Shredder and Splinter.

    He's my favorite version of Splinter

    Any news on when we might get to see the rest? At least just episode 13, even if it comes before another session of hiatus

    I hope they don't make him as crazy and "I want to punch to death" kind like they made him in the Mirage studios show

    I trust they'll do fine.

    I like the way they've reinterpreted most of the characters from the 80s series so far...

    This long time fan is disappointed in this dribble they call TMNT.
    the characters look silly, splinter practices parental abuse, the turtles act like under 10s not teens...mikey is a complete idiot.
    shredder looks silly and sounds just as bad. karai is coming soon and she looks laughable. and roseanne barr? really?
    TMNT:TNM is better than this crap! and thats not saying much

    Wow, thats some harsh words. Everyone I know who has seen this loves it. Hell I grew up loving the 80's toon and eventually got into the "real" comics through that. I loved them just as much. This cartoon manages to get everything I love about all the different TMNT and put them together in a perfect package.

    The only problem is Don has Raphs voice. That's it. End of conversation...

    I don't see that as a problem, Rob Paulson makes a better Donatello than Raphael

    I suppose it depends. I mean I grew upwith the 80's toon, I still watch the 80's toon, and to me his voice will always be Raph. Like if I look away for a second and hear him, it's Raph I hear, not Don.

    Understandable point of view
    Raphael is one of two things I still like about the old show, 3 counting the theme song

    I saw it. Was that episode the first time Snakeweed's human collection was mentioned? I liked the spin on the Raph vs Leo fight.

    I just hate the fact the action figures are so expensive. I went to Wal-mart yesterday and picked up the Shredder. I wanted to get DogPound, Fishface and Splinter, but at 8.88 a pop, I think I'll wait to next payday.

    Where'd Xever and his crew go after the chamber broke and the power cell glowed like that? That's my only issue with this week's episode

    Once Casey joins the turtles, I expect the Pulverizer will return as a villain (either serious or goofball). "Donatello...Baxter Stockman." :hehe:

    There was some talk of Karai.

    She's a good addition. It's nice to see Leonardo do something other than be just the designated leader.
