My Theory is that, that's not actually Chance and Jake, but their sons we are seeing model of.

Ooh! That's a very intriguing possibility!

And yeah, the designs weren't quite what I was hoping for. But at least it's something. :P

Well, with those previews revealed, I can say I'm officially checked out of this new series.
Your points are totally understandable. It's fine to have some design updates, but it's conceivable that they could end up butchering it too. I'll reserve judgment until we have more confirmation about what it's going to look like.

That said I certainly don't mind if the new show is different, in fact I welcome it. I felt that there were plenty of ways in which the original could have been improved or done differently, even with respect to the show's aesthetic quality. If anything, the last thing I would want is for the show to stay the same as before. That doesn't mean of course that every new idea or design that is introduced is necessarily good.

I thought one of the better looks for the characters came from the SNES cartridge box art. Granted, something like that may be hard to animate, but in my opinion this actually looked way better than the show, and at least a move in that direction would have been very nice to see.

Another thing I noticed is they even changed the color schemes of the outfits/gadgets.

They seem to have completely dropped using yellow (although it was used sparingly to begin with, mostly just on the Turbokat and sometimes on the Cycletrons), and now decided to use grey and even white a lot more on everything.

Not really a fan of those model/serial number markings either...why even put them there? It's not like they're mass produced or avaiable to the public to purchase...

That is rather strange about the serial numbers, like what if a random kat (like Nano, for instance) gets curious about the numbers and traces them back to Jake and Chance? That very well may be how he gets introduced. xD

From what I remember, they are supposed to get better, upgraded equipment to bring them back on par with everyone else in the reboot. It;s possible that the icons and numbers, could belong to whoever is providing them the new gear.

Some funny things going on in that cover. Razor going all Wolverine, the jet packs looking like boomboxes, T-bone's veins visible on his arms THROUGH his flight uniform..
