    I loved how large General Traag was, perfect that he was 5 Turtles High

    I really wish they would show Krang Prime already.

    The only thing this version is missing is Rocksteady and Bebop.

    Why does everyone think the Kraang are after April?

    My theory is she is half Neutrino and her dad has been hiding her. Maybe she is royalty?

    That or she is a robot and does not know it but I would rather she be part alien as it opens up things from a story standpoint.

    Great episode! Traag is a little big, but hopefully they'll scale down the toy a bit whenever they make one. As for the whole portal thingy, it looks like it's sort of a homage to this old poster:



    The whole big cylinder thingy and the base (and of course the robots with the brains in thier chests - you can even see the guns they are holding are very similar to the guns in the show!)

    I love this damned show. I haven't loved a turtles show like this EVER. 2003 I started to get into it but they lost me at Utrom shredder. if this shredder is an utrom, I won't like it but if they keep it up as they are going, I'll still watch.

    I like the idea of april being half Neutrino or her having psychic powers.
    It makes sense that they are after april remember when she sent in her DNA as part of the genome project that the Krang was beind.
    I hope we get to see Irma soon since this time they made her a goth.
    Also nice old school poster.

    Can't find any info on who is the voice of Traag in this. Overall the casting for this show is wonderful yet quirky (Roseanne Barr, Elvira for example) which is ok if they cast the right people in this case they did. Corey Feldman is a cool touch as a reference to the live action films too.
    Rob Kerr- 1979-2006. I will always love you.

    I really like how the show integrates past characters (Leatherhead, Tragg, Rat King) into the current story. I really enjoyed the Leatherhead / Tragg pairing in this episode. Leatherhead is a much more interesting character than he was in the original cartoon. I can't wait for his action figure!

    I came across this article about the cartoon.

    It seems that Mutagen Man is appearing at the end of the season and is going to play a big role in Season 2. Awesome!

    I think there's a new episode this weekend, actually.

    I'm happy to hear Mutagen Man's upcoming, and the bit about the original voice actors (well, three of them - Rob Paulsen's already back) is cool - the nods to the original cartoon make me hopeful for an eventual appearance by Bebop & Rocksteady!

    Yes, the article mentions that this week's new episode is about Baxter Stockman. They are going to flesh out that character.

    I like that the other Turtle voice actors are coming back even if it's a cameo .

    I am beyond excited to hear about Mutagen Man! That was my favorite figure in the vintage TMNT line. Mutagen Man is my "Mosquitor" of TMNT, so I am stoked to hear that not only is he debuting in the show this season, but that he'll have a large role in season 2! Which also pretty much guarantees we'll get a new action figure at some point! Excited!!!

    ditto. I am most excited about this news. ESPECIALLY the figure potential. One of the best of the original series.

    I love that they are making him a big part of season 2. I wonder if/who he is to begin with? I wonder if in this series they will turn baxter stockman into mutagen man lol. fly, cyborg and not mutagen mutant.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I would love to see Baxter as the fly again, but as long as they do not make him a cyborg I will be happy.

    it looks like they are going the cyborg route though, but fly baxter was one of my favourite TMNT toys.

    I agree, I've always liked the fly Baxter of the 80s, this new one is OK though much better than the one from 2003. How about if they made him a cybernetic fly? that would be cool.

    Given the proliferation of the ooze in this version, I wouldn't be surprised to see Stockman sprouting fly wings before long. Excuse me, sprouting the "Fly Wings of DOOM!!!!"

    As I've mentioned before, they really are taking the best parts of the previous incarnations and mixing them well here. The baddies are more of a real threat like the 2000 series (well, except maybe for Baxter), but the fun element from the original is very strong, too. And they are doing a good job re-introducing some of the old characters with fresh twists, like Leatherhead and the Krang. I hope Nick sticks with this series like they have with shows like Spongebob; they do have a tendency of cutting things off after a few seasons, and I really think this show has the legs to go for a good long time.

    As for the toys, I was afraid the new mutagen turtles were going to block things up, as they initially just sat on the pegs. They aren't flying off now, mind you, but they are starting to at least move some, leaving space for Baxter and company in the next waves.

    I told you guys you did not need to worry about them, Playmates timed it for Easter and that moved a lot of stock. There is always going to be variants of the Turtles that will sit around, but with the way they are refreshing the waves it should not be a problem.

    Well its already been renewed for a Season 3 and Season 1 has not even finished airing so I think that is a good sign. Toy sales usually guide a show but in almost 30 years TMNT sales have never faltered so I think we are good for at least 5 seasons.
