That was enough to spark a big outcry from fans everywhere. As a fan of TMNT myself since the 80's Fred Wolf animated series, I can't even begin to describe my reservations for the "new direction". It's funny how Bay gave his own twist on Transformers with the 3 movies he already did, and we all know how those turned out. The franchise still made millions of dollars regardless, and one has to wonder if he'll add babes and explosions to his vision of the once mutant turtles now turned "aliens".
