Kodak Moment #76

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 my old bedroom.

This is a photo of one of my display shelves in my old entertainment stand.  It’s filled with Playmates Toys and a sculpt I did of Leonardo in 1997.  And little snow globe pencil sharpeners of Ninja Turtles.  One of the toys from Playmates Toys in the background is Michaelangelo’s Samuria bike, but the packaging is from Japan.  I found that at Motor City Comic Con and just had to have it.  You can see some of the Monster Turtles, movie Turtles and even Next Mutation Turtles mixed into these toys.

This display would change often as I would take something out and add something else.  I liked having TMNT toys out for people to see as I felt these were worth sharing.  Above that shelf was my Michaelangelo head from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3, you can see his headband hanging down on the left side of the picture and on the right is a green strap with Peter Laird’s autograph.  The green straps have the wires that would go from the head to the battery pack in the shell.

Do you display your collections for others to see when they come into your room?  Do you own any of these toys?  Have you ever sculpted a Ninja Turtle before?  Please share thoughts, comments and questions below!
