1992

Kodak Moment #92

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 Turtle Con 1992.

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.

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.

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. 

Random Collection Piece 20

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.
