So are Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles really going to look sort of like his Transformers? Behold our first piece of concept art from the TMNT reboot — which looks, uh... interesting. It's very blocky and stocky, with the same kind of chunky aesthetic that characterizes the Bayformers. On the other hand, it's apparently the work of co-creator Kevin Eastman.

Rapper Kid Cudi posted the above sketch on his Tumblr, along with some hints that he's involved in this film in some way. He also tweeted:

To everyone with doubts & concerns about the new TMNT reboot, trust me, there is NOTHING to worry about. Trust. Everyone will be pleased!


The sketch apparently was given to Cudi as a gift by Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, who run the production company Platinum Dunes along with Bay himself.

People are taking this to be official concept art for the movie, but it could just be a dorky sketch created by Eastman for the producers in five minutes. We'll find out soon, I guess. [via Huffington Post]
