Growing up I have always known of Star Trek, it was one of those things that I would see on the TV often. While no one in my family is Trekkies, we would watch the series when they were on. I personally enjoyed Next Generation and Voyager. Though by no means would I say I’m a Trekkie or even a Trekker. It is however a fandom I can respect who have lived long and through many different versions of the series. Now these fans face a new change their path, as most versions of Star Trek go with new crews, the last movie that came out introduced a new cast picking up classic characters. Some fans embraced the new, the changes, and the cast. While others remain true to their classic series. The sequel to that movie is now coming out, and thanks to Gofobo and Fox 2 Detroit News I was able to see an advance screening of the film. Here is my thoughts on “Star Trek : Into the Darkness”.
It has been awhile since I posted the next part of putting the LEGO Shell Raiser set together, as I did Bag 1 as a video back in early February and bag 2 in early April. I’ve got so many stories that it is hard to get back to some of these videos as much as I would like to. I have finally got some time to breath and put together Bag 3 of the LEGO TMNT Shell Raiser set. This Bag is the beginning of putting the Shell Raiser together. This is part 2 of 3 videos for this one LEGO set. As LEGO did an amazing job on each of their sets.
This month has been so busy that I really did just totally forgot about things I needed to do. Even fell behind in stories for Cowabunga Corner, as we’ve been traveling, came down sick, and working on fixing up the house. So when I saw the new issue of My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic was coming out today, it took me by surprise. My mind raced to remembered the previous issues so that I knew where I was picking up. Luna is on a mission with Twilight Sparkle and friends to save Rarity from Nightmare Moon. I remember the other issues was building up the story and I was not sure how I was going to feel with where things were going with this plot. Here is my review of My Little Pony “Friendship is Magic” issue 7 by IDW.

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing. Every year I get something new that joins the collection. Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more. To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do. Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.

When Nickelodeon got their hands on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they got themselves 25 years of stories, characters, and fans.

Here is my review of Nickelodeon’s TMNT episode #22 “Pulverizer Returns!”.
The first Saturday in May is a yearly event that people can enjoy. As Comic Book stores receive Free Comic Books to pass out to anyone who shows up. In the Detroit area each Comic Book store does their own thing and the event takes place in the store. This is how I thought it was done everywhere, though this year there was two events I wanted to go to that was out of state. I was in for a shock with how one town runs their free comic book day like a Holiday. This day held a few things to make it great, it was Free Comic Book day, there was a new TMNT Comic being given out, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird was going to be doing autographs in locations, it was Star Wars day and my Birthday! Here is my reviews of two different Free Comic Book Day events. One with Kevin Eastman in Rochester, NH and the other with Peter Laird in Wells, ME.
When Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the Ninja Turtles, they named them after the famous artist. This is known through all of the different medias of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And through the years there’s only one name that changed in the way they spell it. From issue 1 of Mirage TMNT Volume 1, Michelangelo’s name was spelled Michaelangelo. There was an a right after the h. Though in 2000, there was a change to that spelling. This was only mentioned once in character, in an area only the online fans know of. People may notice that I use both spellings of the name, here’s I talk about how I decide to which spelling I use. Continue reading
In December 2012 we uploaded an interview with Dario Brizuela for his work on the new IDW Nickelodeon TMNT Comic Book. This new comic has been long awaited. Our first real tease was the book released of “Rise of the Turtles” which was filled with screen caps from the animated series.

This awesome comic is a whole new adventure of the Nickelodeon TMNT Here is my review of this new adventure.
