TMNT Comparison shirts

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder's diabolical plan. – IMBD synopsis of 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie

Foot clan? Shredder?  They’re back!  The cartoon made popular in the 1980’s is back – albeit darker and more intense – and in full marketing mode.  Shortly after a trailer previewed at Cinema Con this past March, it boomed in popularity on Youtube.com.  Now with a Facebook page and music video for the song “Shell Shocked”, merchandise is flying off the shelves for the long forgotten cartoon brand.

So how much would you pay to relive you childhood?  Most stores sell these new classic t-shirts for around $20 to $30. With a little Google magic at your fingertips, it’s not hard to see that the Turtles have a new look; less cartoonish and more edgy.  In a perfect world – full of danger and corruption – what would your turtle t-shirt look like?  Logon to the Designer Tool at Whooptee.com and give it a try!

 

DESIGN

OFF-THE-RACK

WHOOPTEE CUSTOM MADE

COLOR

The 1980’s bright, cartoonish colors become desaturated with the film’s portrayal of New York sewers and relentless crime.

Classic gray is always a great backdrop if you choose to old-school cartoon look; it shows you don’t take the cartoon too seriously

STYLE

Thick cotton shirts look a little too new, especially when paired with flat comic graphics.

A pliable burn-out style cotton with mid-cut sleeves looks modern  but not distracting

CATCH PHRASE

Insert TMNT logo or faces anywhere on the shirt

Cowabunga Dude!

Turtle Power or even Heroes in a Half Shell

CHARACTER SETTINGS

Most off the rack options show the four turtles featured as pack, prominently displaying weapons; some enhance a faux-shell and others  have the only the faces

Rather than ripping off TMNT artistry; use a shell or a weapon associated with the character. Or try a Shredder shadow or even Splinter for a new option
