Summer of Shell: Nickelodeon Suites Resort

On Wednesday, June 11th 2014 I received a phone call from Michele while she was driving to Orlando, Florida. She was on her way to the Nickelodeon Suites Resort for Retro Weekend, a TMNT event part of the Summer of Shell. Summer of Shell is an event made to celebrate TMNT in one of it's biggest years yet. With the 30th Anniversary, 2014 movie, and epic storyline of the Nick series, the turtle-power-train shows no signs of slowing down!

This event was so big, that one review just won't be able fit it all in. I'll be covering various aspects separately, starting with the hotel itself.

TMNT 2014 Movie Fan Gatherings!

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film coming to theaters on August 8th, some fans are already planning parties and meet ups across the country.  This is something I highly encourage.  Having friends there to share the moving going experience with is a great way to see this film.  To help with this idea we have started up a topic on TMNT-L to help people find TMNT fan gatherings and if their area is not listed they can add it.

Review: Midwest Media Expo

Conventions are one of my favorite things to do.  It takes you out of the stress for a weekend and places you somewhere that you can meet and hang out with people that enjoy the same stuff as you do.  Be this in your backyard or across the globe, conventions are like a second home to those who go.  Conventions usually start really small and have to work their way up, though in Michigan we got a new one called “Midwest Media Expo” which road the success of Youmacon to make it the largest first year event in Michigan.  I was at a guest at this convention and will love to share my review of a great weekend in Detroit.

 

Power Con 2013: Nickelodeon TMNT Panel

Power Con 2013 was a wonderful event for fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  With guests ranging from the original cartoon series to the Nickelodeon series.  There was a little something for everyone.  The Cowabunga Corner crew worked hard to cover every area of TMNT at Power Con.  Here is our video of the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles Nickelodeon panel.

Midwest Media Expo 2014: Pop Culture Panel

 

Kodak Moments #13

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 have 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 2009 TMNT Movie Try outs.

Power Con 2013: 4Kids Panel

Powercon 2013 took place in California it was based on the Thundercats,  He-man and Ninja Turtles. I was brought in as a guest and got to host several panels including the TMT panel for the 2000's.  My guests were all from the four kids series so we did not cover the 2000's we just covered the 2003 Turtles series.  Here is the video of that panel.

MME2014 Black Nerd Comedy Panel

Midwest Media Expo is a new event in Detroit which had a lot of great panels going on, with fun guests.  A guest I got to spend a lot of time talking with, was Andre from “Black Nerd Comedy”.  He got a panel on Saturday night which was a blast.  Here I show an edited down version of his panel, cutting a few things with reason.  This is a fun panel, with a lot of laughs and his introduction the Michigan drink called “Faygo”.  Check out the “Black Nerd Comedy” Panel!

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.
