Not sure exactly where Action Toys got these images of the toy line based on Michael Bay's new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle' movie, but it's not pretty. We'd already gotten an inkling of the horrors that await our childhood memories come August with leaked Halloween costume images, but this is the clearest look yet at what Bay has wrought on our radical dudes. Brace yourselves... Photo Credit: Action Toys via Comic Book Movie Guys? Are you okay? Do we need to have a talk about the dangers of juicing because I'm 800% sure Ooze doesn't give you bulging neck veins and biceps so large you might as well be in a puffy coat ready to play in the snow because you sure as hell aren't putting your arms down...ever.

Nickelodeon liked what it saw and fast-tracked 20 episodes of Breadwinners, which premieres Monday, Feb. 17 at 7:30/6:30c. (The show then moves to Saturdays at 11 a.m./10c starting Feb. 22.)
