Chosen answer: He had moved away - he says in the third movie. We are never told as to where it was he moved to though.

Question: In the TGRI lab, when the Professor is disposing of the Ooze, he places it in a weird looking machine. It has a pyramid like structure with what appears to be a rock of some sort in the center. What is that machine and what is that rock? If it even is a rock? (00:23:05)

Chosen answer: The machine dispose of the ooze. How exactly is not expressed in the film.

Question: Does anybody know how soon this movie takes place after the first one? The foot soldiers are regrouping at the "fallback spot" and Shredder digs out of the garbage pile which would suggest anywhere from 2-24 hours later. Yet somehow April has a brand-new fully furnished apartment and it sounds like the turtles have been there for weeks by the manner in which the neighbor complains about the noise.

Answer: Shredder could have been unconscious for days before he even began to dig his way out. Also, some apartments come furnished. The neighbor is likely one of those neighbors that always has to complain about something, and exaggerate at that. It's probably been about a week or so.

That still doesn't explain the scene with the foot clan.

Answer: Maybe they went into hiding for a while before meeting at the junkyard. It's unlikely they'd be remembering where to go after a huge battle from the previous TMNT movie. It was hectic after all.

Question: How did Shredder escape the back of a garbage truck after it was turned on by Casey Jones?

Answer: He didn't escape. He just managed to survive somehow. Hence, we see him escaping at the dump after the truck drops off the garbage.

Then how exactly was he not crushed while inside a garbage truck?

People have survived (badly injured) in real life. Being crushed in a garbage truck is very dangerous but can be survivable depending on how much and what sort of garbage is in there, when the victim gets rescued and what medical care they get afterward. Also Shredder is a movie supervillain in armour so he is stronger and better protected than the average person.

Continuity mistake: When the Turtles first arrive on screen behind Keno, they leap over the boy to attack the thieves. Their order from left to right when they walk up is Mikey, Leo, Donny, then Raph. The very next shot shows them in the air, and the order is now Mikey, Donny, Leo, then Raph. Donny and Leo switched places between shots. (00:03:35)
