Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Turtle Power!

Oh no, Photoshop Crusaders! Michael Bay has found his way into our toy boxes again, and he's gotten mutagenic ooze all over our beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now it's our turn to play with his vision. Tonight we dine on turtle 'shops!

The designs for the upcoming live action movie aren't horrible, but it's hard to imagine these top-heavy heroes pranking pizza delivery men or ninja-kicking the damn rabbits.

Mikey here looks like someone beat the living hell out of Shrek.

Let's see if we can't inject the spirit of the beloved comic books, toys, cartoons and live action movies that came before this.

The rules are simple — every valid entry must incorporate imagery from the recently released trailer, seen here. Grab a still, a few frames if you're animate GIF-savvy, or just cut out the bits you like — might I suggest Megan Fox's wonderful reaction shots. Then mix them together with the earlier incarnations of the Turtles of your choice — comic books, movies, cartoons, toys, video games — the shell's the limit.

I'll just leave this here, for inspiration.

Not sure how to upload images? Follow these simple steps and you'll soon be uploading pictures to the internet like a pro image uploading sort of person.

1. Create your 'Shop and save it to your desktop.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click

4. This brings up Click "Choose file" if you're uploading your 'shop from your desktop

5. Alternatively, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image's URL into the field that says "Image URL." Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

6. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I promise I will look at it.

7. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some big-ass animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.
