Rocksteady by BezerroBizarro Rocksteady by BezerroBizarro

This is Rocksteady, as seen in the TMNT toy line.

When I watched TMNT II movie for the first time, I got really disappointed that the two new evil mutants that were going to be created by Shredder's team weren't Bebop and Rocksteady. Recently, I've read that the original idea was bringing both Shredder's mutant henchmen to the big screen, but Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the Ninja Turtles, didn't want them in the movie. So they created Tokka, a mutant sea turtle, and Rahzar, a mutant wolf, to replace Bebop and Rocksteady in the movie. They're cool characters, but I think that the original idea would have been better.

Hope you like it! =)

I like this design. Simple and eye-catching, and his important physical features are there. I love that you kept the action figure colour scheme, I always liked that better than in the cartoon. I'm happy that those guys are in the IDW comic series now.

Thank you!
I like the designs of the toys. They're tough like the comics but visually similar to the cartoon.
Bebop and Rocksteady are cool characters. It would have been great if they had appeared in the movies and in the most recent cartoons.

Kevin Eastman likes Bebop and Rocksteady. It's dickhead Peter Laird that didn't want them.

From what I heard, the reason the original TMNT creators didn't want Bebop & Rocksteady in the TMNT2 movie was because the makers of the movie wanted to tone their characters down alot, (make 'em even stupider, and less mean then they were even in the cartoon wich already toned them down a bit after the second season) wich they didn't want to do.
So they made Tokka & Razzar instead. (Admittedly, I kinda liked them to.) So maybe it was a good thing they didn't put Bebop & Rocksteady in the movie. Hollywood might've ruined them, or might've made them kinda weird. (But who knows?)

Also, great work on Rocksteady. :) He looks great in your drawing style, and I like the unique proportions you gave him, and comically hairy arms.
I also like how you have him holding his machete wich I think he only used once or twice in the cartoon. (Due to network censors thinking such a weapon was to "violent" for a kid's show, or something.)
