I wanted to post this Friday but I just haven't been feeling to well so you guys get a weekend post lol. Depending on how I feel, you might not get a Monday post either.
Pixel Dan pointed out in his reaction video, April was occasionally drawn as African American in the original Mirage comic book series! As you can see, she is still younger than what most of know her as. She also seems to still be able to do "super-power" like things like in the Nick show judging by the bat construct.
The group all together!
So how do I feel? Honestly I am being optimistic, I already have warmed up to the designs much more than I was feeling on Thursday when I originally had seen them in a leak that morning. As many of you may know as I have been very open on the TOY DISORDERLY forums in the past, I absolutely HATED the Nick Turtles designs. So much so that I refused to even watch it. After a few years, I finally gave in and watched it and after seeing it in action and seeing how good it really was, I warmed up to the looks so this time I won't be making a decision until AFTER I see the show. It obviously has a "Teen Titans GO!" feel (I dislike that show) and hope that its nothing like that. Pixel Dan pointed out that it reminded him of "Samurai Jack", which is pretty decent. One thing I should point out is that we warned that Rise was going to be catered to much younger kids than Nick Turtles was. We will just have to wait and see. One thing I do want to point out is that the turtles are no longer biological brothers and people are saying then they cannot be brothers. Say what? Being formerly homeless I have to say that is nonsense! You can be so close as friends that you feel they are brothers (or sisters) I think of Cassie not as a friend but as a sister! So yeah they can still be brothers, I mean they always called Splinter their father (oh and I am adopted but think of my sister and parents as my sister and parents)! Playmates hopefully will unveil the toys at ToyFair in 2 weeks and then we'll see how they translate in plastic and maybe even see some foes! I am looking forward to John Cena being a heel (foe) in the show as Baron Draxum!
