The new Ninja Turtles movie fell kinda flat with many viewers, and fans who loved all things TMNT as a kid simply couldn’t stomach the redesigned look of the turtles, but as it turns out those heroes in a half shell could have looked even more disturbing.
This rejected pitch artwork for the latest TMNT movie was created by Anthony Francisco, who has done some amazing work on features such as Guardians of the Galaxy and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
His far more extraterrestrial looking Ninja Turtle designs were ultimately rejected in favor of the large nostriled versions that made it onto the big screen, but which version is the best of the worst?
Anthony’s revamped version of the Turtles look a bit too froggy to me, with long legs that would be better for hopping than kicking shell, and a blocky head only an alien turtle mother could love.
