Reaction : Rise of the TMNT first article

Cast for Nickelodeons Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesSince 1987 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been going through reboots.  MWS was the first to really change the Turtles, with David Wise as the writer who had the job to make these Turtles kid friendly.  With every new incarnation of the Turtles, comes big changes.  Some changes stay, some changes are only in those incarnation of these characters.  Each ride is it’s own adventure which has it’s beginning middle and end.  As fans, the best we can do is see where the creative team takes us, and hopefully enjoy the ride.  A new ride is starting, with Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Happy Valentine's Weekend Everyone!

Happy Valentine's weekend everyone!  Hopefully those who enjoy Valentine’s day is getting a chance to go out and take in all of the Holiday, with their dolls, balloons, candy and cards.  Every store I go into, I’m reminded of this pink Holiday, as I see people all around the candy and cards, looking for the right ones to give to those that they care about.  While I am not big on this Holiday personally, I do find myself joining the crowd looking for the cool new TMNT Products that are out for the Holiday.  And I found some.  Here is a short write up about TMNT items you can find this weekend, out for Valentine’s Day 2016.

Kodak Moment #50

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from the Turtle Con booth held at Motor City Comic Con 2001.

Review: SideShow Collectibles Leonardo

What time is it? It’s Ninja Time!

Hey dudes and dudettes, Major-League Butt-Kicking is back in town! Oh yeah! He may not be my favorite of the terrapin bros., but Leonardo sure left an impression when he got the honor of being the first turtle we ever saw in live-action glory! Speaking of which, my name’s Leo! I’m back again to bring you my third review of SideShow Collectibles’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line of comiquettes. In case you haven’t guessed it, this iteration of my four-part series covers the Leader in Blue, Leonardo!

Midwest Media Expo 2015 TMNT Cartoon Panel

 

I always enjoy sharing information about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with fellow fans.  Midwest Media Expo is one of the fun conventions that brings me in yearly to talk Turtles, where I often get to share the floor with Andre from Black Nerd Comedy.  Where the two of us can bring more TMNT history to life for fans.  Together we cover whatever topic is at hand, in this panel we’re talking about the history of the TMNT Cartoon series.

Review: SideShow Collectibles Raphael

It’s me, Leonel, back again to review another of Sideshow Collectibles’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles amazing comiquettes! It’s my mission to tell all my fellow Tortuga Fans why these statues are all so precious, and why they’d be a centerpiece of any TMNT lover’s collection. You will listen NOW, Turtles Fans!

This week, I’m going over the second turtle I managed to get my grubby little fanboy hands on. He’s got the most attitude on the team, known for being cool but crude, and you can always count on him to throw the first punch. He’s mean, he’s green, and he’s got a serious case of Middle Child Syndrome. It’s the Nightwatcher himself; Raphael!
