The more things change, the more they remain the same—or so it goes for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans. A recent promo campaign encouraged fans to tweet for their favorite turtle team member in order to unlock all-new posters. And it looks like our preference order for the four heroes in a halfshell apparently hasn’t changed in three decades.

We hear you, Zeke. We’re pretty bummed Raphael always seems to come in third. But we’re also excited to see so much love for the gang after all these years. Even the campaign to unlock Donatello’s poster seems to have moved at a ninja turtle’s pace. Check out all of the four posters below. Intense, no?
