Random Collection #29

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.  This one is about a headband I got from San Diego Comic Con International 2009.

At San Diego Comic Con International 2009 there was a booth put together “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Smash-up” held by Ubisoft.  Ubisoft is the company that made the game.  So they had a few promotional items to give away at the booth over the weekend.  One of these items was this TMNT headband.  Really that was the only item I wanted from their booth.  I already got to play Smash up at the TMNT bus while traveling across country.  The hard part was being there when they were giving these away.

This was a challenge to get.  I finally got my hands on one before the convention ended, when they were doing TMNT trivia, I worked my way up near the front.  These were not sold anywhere that I am aware of, so they were Comic Con exclusives. 

The funny part here was when they were asking questions they asked “What is the Turtles Battle Cry?”  Answers they did not take was: Cowabunga, Turtle Power, or It’s Ninja Time.  People were calling out a bunch of different TMNT battle cries and they would only take one.  Can you guess which battle cry they were looking for?  It was used often.

Have you ever won something by answering trivia at a convention?  What did you win and what was the trivia about?  Please share all stories, comments and questions below.
