2012: The rebirth of TMNT

by Justin W

2012 was a great year for TMNT.  Nickelodeon took a chance on the Turtles and it paid off. The advertising department was pushing the Turtles at Comic-Con.

The online media usage was done very well. Fans were able to choose what side they would join.  Panels were held at the convention and the actors were in attendance to promote the new show.

2012 also saw the re-launch of TMNT comics. There has been a lot of up and down with TMNT comics, but as it turned out this version was different in a good way. The TMNT had micro series that gave a more in-depth look at the Turtles. In addition, they worked with the TV show. This allowed for a detailed story arc.

The toys for TMNT are selling fast. The Turtles are done very well for the price tag. While some characters like Splinter and Shredder are very basic, they are passable. The re-launch has created a bigger demand for classic items as well. eBay is flooded with TMNT merchandise and it is selling.

Pizza Hut was even featured on teenagemutantninjaturtles.com for honoring a pizza coupon. How cool is that?

As for a movie, that is questionable. Many fans were disappointed to learn that  Michael Bay was changing the story line of TMNT, but not all is lost. The movie was put on hold for the time being and many fans are hoping it will never see the light of day. Bay has angered many fans including Transformers fans, as he ruined the franchise in the minds of many.

Co-creator of TMNT, Kevin Eastman, did like the idea of a change for TMNT. No matter if the movie flops, he will get a fat check. Even some actors of TMNT movies think the movie was a bad idea.

I just want a Turtle movie Michael and you really shouldn’t change the story line the fans aren’t mad at you their mad at the new story line. If you don’t want anger fans then take Kevins,and your fans words when we say this…..DONT CHANGE THE STORY LINE !!

Wow that is very well worded! At the moment, a few sources claim there are issues but still, a TMNT movie will hit the light of day. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and its fans are a strong force. Cowabunga!!

Hey Admin so do you think that if you ever meet Kevin Eastman and the cast of the 2012 ninja turtles what would you do ? Like if you could send a week with them and give them ideas of new episodes ?

Gracie,

That is an excellent question and I would like to start it off with a pizza party!! After enjoying some good pizza pies, I would be sure to discuss the much anticipated 2014 film and give all my thoughts. I would tell the director of the new film to get into the history of Master Splinter and Oroku Saki (Master Shredder). I feel its important for fans to understand the origins of a story and it reflects so well in movies when directors take time to reminisce.

Then I would be sure to have a good time after all the important stuff is handled. How about you?

Pamela,

Yes its a great time to share your love for the Ninja Turtles once again as 2012 was such a strong year for them. Now the cast is all set for 2013 episodes 🙂

Well I would have some fun and joke around with them because when I was a kid I was going through things and Ninja Turtles were every thing to me and now their like family……..me family and your my best turtle fan friend and your part of my turtle family along with Eastman , Greg Cipes, and every one eles. Then I would talk about the movie for a while and then some new ideas about new episodes .
