Maligna and the Malignoids





















Quoting from the Mighty Mutanimals animation bible:

"Maligna is the evil alien insect queen from Dimension X and mother to the entire Malignoid race.
Her sole purpose for existing is to see to the successful propagation of her malignoid race. She seeks out green worlds that she can turn into vast Malignoid hatcheries. She is friends with the twisted warlord Krang, a being with whom she shares an appetite for destruction."

"Malignoids are the warrior children of Maligna. With their hard insect exo-skeletons and their one-track
insect mentality, they are programmed for destruction. Little to no individuality is found amongst them and they exist only to carry out the will of their queen mother."

Man, These designs are pretty close to the original charachter concepts from the TMNTA and Mutanimals comics. That's realy cool. Again, thanks for sharing!

For some reason Maligna is my least favorite design out of all of these so far..I think perhaps she looks to bland compaired to the rest.
But I do love the story.

-->> Mutanimals would have changed the coarse of TMNT ..the original show.

If Krang teamed up with Maligna ..what would have become of Shredder ??


Why didn't they look at these characters and at least bring them into Turtles show .. i mean outside of Mondo,Wingnut,Screwloose,Leatherhead, & Scumbug ?! I mean ..some cool stuff woulda happened to TMNT had they looked at this from a different angle,least incorporating into the already existin show. Gee.. :( >v<

Yes, Maligna didn't make the transition as well as some of the other characters. There was some talk of simplifying her quite a bit.

The main focus was on Maligna. The TMNT universe with Shredder wouldn't be affected and was happening simultaneously. Krang was there to lend moral support and advice when needed to Maligna. Maybe provide a new mutant here or there too if needed.

Don't have an answer for you there tokka, other than to say Fred and Playmates had their own agendas.
