2012 TMNT Wallpaper by DeathGoddess1995 2012 TMNT Wallpaper by DeathGoddess1995
This is a little preview of what the Turtles would look like in the new series by Nickelodeon. Who knows, i guess it might be interesting. But, i hate the fact that they changed Donnie's and Mikey's weapons- besides it looks like that Mikey doesnt use his nunchaku anymore. Instead, he will use kusarigama.....:no:

The animation used to create was similar, though there are different looks. 
even if i am not a big fan of the new tmnt style, i really like this wallpaper.
Nickelodeon just HAD to ruin the TMNT style,didn't they?
But I still kinda excited for it...sorta.

I love this pic
I don't like how they changed Donnie and Mikey's weapons, either. I'm excited, but I don't know what the show will be like -- I mean, if they're willing to give all of them bladed weapons, I'm not sure how true they'll stay to other things. (Like, Donnie's pacifism, for example.)
Personally, I like the weapon changes for Don and Mikey. In the past, they were made fun of for their weapons being basically sticks. With a kusarigama and naginata, it added a new level of badassness to them both. A naginata is basically Don's old weapon with a blade at the end but that makes it barely any different and probably won't change his combat style all that much. However, a kusarigama is a big change for Mikey. It's very difficult to master and dangerous to both the enemy AND the user if the user doesn't know the proper way of using it. The chain and weighted end of it can be used to either disable an enemy of their weapon or movement, letting the user strike with ease with the sickle. Or used as a blunt weapon and strike the enemy from a distance. You could also swing and strike with the bladed end. Really, Mikey got a better weapon for a change (unlike that grappling hook or those tonfa sticks). I know both their old weapons are classic but changes are gonna happen from time to time but those changes are never truly permanent. All I'm saying is just go with it 'cause it's not gonna stay like this forever.
But Donnie's a pacifist! It's just my opinion, but I think giving him a bladed weapon takes away from that part of him, and that's a very big part! It's something that really defines him in the most general sense. And Mikey's all about having fun and not worrying so much. He's not really innocent anymore, but that's still what a lot of people think of when they think of Mikey. Fun and innocence. And his new blades would take away from that image, too.
I don't like Nick's decision to change their weapons, but it's really too late to do anything about it now.
A change of weapons DOES NOT affect the turtles' personalities! Even with these new weapons, Mikey's still gonna be fun-loving and energetic and Don's still gonna be a pacifist by default. Besides, they're NINJAS, they gotta have skills in working with different weapons from their main ones. Remember when they took on that robo-turtle that knew every one of their moves with their signature weapons and the only way to beat it was to swap weapons with each other and attack using another turtle's main weapon? Did they change personalities? No. They were the same turtles we know and grew up with but with changed weapons. You're pressing the freak out button over nothing more than a item change. Just chill and quit acting like the world will end.
