Realistically though, it's probably the original writer. I wouldn't know to be honest, I havn't been following the story very closely except to watch fan reactions.
I would be VERY stunned to believe to that either Kevin Eastman or Peter Laird would even approve to this blasphemy! They disliked what was done to make the 1987 cartoon what is was, and that was tame
compared to this change.

Through all the battles, locations and stories one thing has remained a constant: where the Turtles came from.

Well, they did get heavy artillery suits of mech armor at certain points in the 2003 cartoon, but those were just supplementary additions to their arsenal that were only used on special occasions.

Its funny how people held him completely responisble for the TF movies since he was the director, but now that he's producing it he's still being held 100% responsible. Not one person in this thread who is upset with the idea of TMNT being aliens has even meantioned dumping responsibility on the director or the company who owns the rights to TMNT. If the fans are so important, why did they sign off on this idea??
Oh, I'm not just mad at Bay, but everyone who thought this aliens nonsense was a good idea. Though, Bay's been the only name mentioned so far (unless I've missed a post), so he's been the main target. Give me some other names and I'll give credit (YMMV) where credit is due.
