Review: Turtle Comm (1991)

Today we are going to take a look at the original Turtle Comm role play toy released by Playmates Toys in 1991. I recently found this at Dlux Expo in Michigan. Mine is not the same as it was originally, so I will note where things are missing to the best of my knowledge.

Power Con 2013 Panel: Writers of Classic TMNT

At Power Con 2013 there was a lot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles events that went on.  From panels, booths and guests.  This truly was an event that TMNT fans could enjoy.  We will like to share some of these events through video.  This here is the panel for Writers of the Classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

This panel was originally listed to have six guests appear at it.  Though three of our guests were not able to make it to the event.  The three that were there had a lot to share as seen in this video.  An informative panel for fans of the original TMNT series and inspiring writers. 

Random Collection #35

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 “Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Kampen Mot Soltjuvarna” record book.

Interview: TMNT 2014 by Kidrobot

At Toy Fair 2014 we visited a lot of different booths with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products.  One of the really cool booths was Kidrobot.  They had these toys based on the original TMNT cartoon with characters like Bebop and Rocksteady!  Just one of the areas that we had to check more into for the collectors out there who want to know.  Here is our interview about these awesome new toys.

January 2014 TMNT movie updates.

No pictures or descriptions included

One thing that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies seem to do for it’s fans is leave us in suspense.  Not the type that we like either, while other movies promote and throw their characters in our faces for a year before a film is released to the public.  Ninja Turtle movies, like to wait and leave us begging for glances.  While some glances have gotten out, they were removed and now we all sit here waiting for the official releases.

Memory of James Avery

One could hope for some good news for starting off the New Year.  Though times remain to be rough all around.  Today, I write this with a heavy heart. I want to wish the family James Avery my deepest condolences.  While I have never met James, his talents and career has touched my life more than once.  He will be deeply missed.

James passed away on December 31st, 2013.  He recently had a surgery and things turned for the worse according to a TMZ report.  James was 65 years old, born on November 27th 1948.

Cowabunga Corner #102: Interview Mark Ginther

Hey everyone,

Welcome to episode 24 of Cowabunga Corner Season 4.  In this episode I do an interview with Mark Ginther, the man who wore the Rahzar costume.  Mark has never been interviewed for this role before, so it was a real honor to get to talk to him here on Cowabunga Corner.  Let him share his stories of being Rahzar.

1991 Coming Out of Their Shells Tour Chicago

It was 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going strong around the world, from the movies, toys, cartoons, and the live concert was still going around the country.  This was a smaller show that was edited down from the original “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”.  They came to Michigan to do a show.  I was staying at my aunt’s during that time and was not able to convince anyone to take me to the show, since I saw the full show back in October.  I was crushed. I wanted to see it alive again so badly.  Disappointed that I missed the show, the only thing I got was a poster that was badly beaten left hanging in a store on their pinboard.
