Remember when Michael Bay wanted to call the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot simply Ninja Turtles? Well, there was a reason for that. According to a new toy photo, which reveals the Evolution Figure pack, the four mutant brothers are no longer teens in this version of the story. They're actually young adults traversing the streets of New York City and its underground sewer system. How old are they? We don't quite know yet, but its likely that they are Megan Fox's contemporaries, which would place them at roughly 28 years old. Which in turtle years (they can live to be over a hundred years old)...Makes them infants?

Leonardo, shown in the photo, is actually the oldest of the four brothers, with the unpictured Michelangelo being the youngest. In the comic books and cartoons it's believed that Leo is 16 while the other three turtles are 15. The Evolution figures show the teen turtles as quite juvenile. Its possible that they are tweens, between 11 and 12 years of age, while the Turtles we'll meet in the movie are between 18 and 19, still making them teens? This may not be revealed in the finished movie at all, but one thing is for certain from these latest photos, we'll definitely get a 'growing up' montage that features Raphael running around in his tighty whities.
