You'd buy this, wouldn't you?

I have no idea how credible this report is, but it's detailed enough to be an amazing delusion if not real. It seems someone got an advance look at some of Playmates' stuff for the upcoming movie (which, knowing Playmates, may of course not represent what's actually onscreen). I'm posting it here anyway because I've found that even mentioning the movie is like feeding chum to sharks, and just as fun to watch.

Here's a sample (possible spoilers):

- Each turtle's mask matches the color from the cartoons.
- Styles of dress are different as well with Leonardo in a sort of pseudo samurai gear get up including shoulder armor, some leg bits, arm bracer and foot wear up to the calf with bindings showing. He might have some armor (non metal) along his chest as well. Donatello's gear is a mix of techy, modern and a dash of samurai with more normal footwear (for a 2 toed giant turtle), some gadget on his head and gadgetry coming off of his shell. The ends of his mask are far longer than the rest, draping down to his waist. Raphael has adopted an urban warrior look with white, bandage-like wrappings on his feet, right leg, and right arm. He wears this very conan-esque loin cloth..thing..with leather straps draping down as if he were more suited for gladiatorial battle. Michelangelo's outfit seems the simplest with a hoodie wrapped around his waist, pants and sneakers with the toes cut out, wrappings on his hands and forearms, a necklace (could be puka shell beads?) and his mask ends drape down to his chest. He looks frighteningly ready to spit out some modern catch phrases.
For the rest, including whether they do or don't appear alien, and what April and Shredder look like, check out the full story at Idle Hands.
