We should be getting our first look at Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soon, as the film’s first trailer is expected to play in front of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in theaters April 4th.  If you just can’t wait that long to get a look at the reinvented title characters, perhaps these new TMNT toys will hold you over.  There are some notable changes to the familiar animated turtles of the 80s, such as their steroid-enhanced musculature, their edgy urban outfits complete with waist drapery to obscure their turtle crotches, and Mikey’s weaponry trade up from nunchaku to a three-section staff.

Alan RitchsonPete PloszekJeremy Howard, and Noel Fisher are assuming the physical roles of the mo-capped heroes.  The cast also includes Megan Fox as April O’Neil and Will Arnett as her cameraman, William Fichtner as Shredder, and Danny Woodburn (Seinfeld) as Splinter.  Sounds pretty nuts, right?  Produced by Michael Bay, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.  Hit the jump to check out the images.
