Youmacon 2016 TMNT Panel

 

Review New York City Comic Con 2016

New York City Comic Con 2016 was just this past weekend.  With a lot of cosplayers, shoppers and guests.  Tons of panels to entertain the masses, games to share the swag with the crowd and mascots to bring super heroes to life.  Here is my review of New York City Comic Con 2016.

I got in line Thursday morning with Metalhead and Mondo Gecko.  While waiting for Alopex, who had Metalhead and my badge.  We met a lot of other TMNT fans.  Getting to talk to people heading to sit in the line that was inside.  Besides for the sun, it wasn't a bad waiting spot.  I was able to show them a few things on my laptop and we some of the other fun stuff I brought. 

CCN: NECA TMNT Interview with Trevor!

 

Shellback Artworks : Closing Event

When I became a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, I was only 11 years old.  I did not realize that the age of 38 I would be sitting here still talking about Turtles to this day with other TMNT fans around the world.   I never pictured that I’d get to meet so many people who’ve worked on TMNT either.  I have to say it’s been the wonderful people behind the Ninja Turtles, which kept me a fan all these years.  Which is why I highly encourage other TMNT fans to go out and meet these wonderful folk.  I try to stand behind each of these talented people when they venture out on their own, which brings us to today’s story.  Shellback Artworks, a Gallery, store and school that was opened in Wells, ME by one of those amazing guys. 

We're back 2016

I am so sorry I’ve been gone so long this time.  I will openly state that this was the worse year of my life with health and stress.  But we’re not here to talk about that, instead what’s to come on Cowabunga Corner.

We want to start bringing you stories again here on the website.  Starting this week, Kodak Moments will be returning with photos from my past and present, which may or may not connect to stories already here on Cowabunga Corner.  We have pictures from my personal life to photos from TMNT events dating all the way back to 1990.  Kodak Moments are simple stories, done for fun and usually are posted on Thursdays.

Toy Fair 2016 : Edwin the Duck

 

There are a lot of fun toys coming out for 2016.  From Action figures, dolls, games, and educational toys.  We got to see a lot of these toys at Toy Fair 2016 and want to share some of the awesome booths that we stopped at to see what’s new for the market.  Here is our coverage of “Edwin the Duck”.

Edwin is more than just a toy, it has so much to offer to a child.  From learning, a nightlight, games, and even a bath toy.  We got to see Edwin in action, and want to share this cool product.  Our video is an interview that also shows some of what Edwin does.

Review: TMNT Dimension X 32 Valentines

This upcoming weekend is Valentine’s Day.  A day of chocolate, candy, cards and romance.  Not a Holiday I usually get too excited about, though one where some fun merchandise does come out for the schools that take part in it with their students.  Since January 1st, there has been cards filling the stores, along with candy and dolls holding hearts.  Of course the things that catch my attention are the ones based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  I’ve seen some that’ve been on the market before, but this year I’ll like to share some new ones.  This review is for American Greetings Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dimension X 32 Valentines.

Happy New Years! 2016

Happy New Years, Everyone!  Welcome to the first post here on Cowabunga Corner for the year.  And what a year it’s already shaping up to be.  This year we have a new TMNT Movie coming out in June with Bebop and Rocksteady!  We also have the rest of Season 4 as we see the Turtles finish their space trip with the Fugitoid!  And we get to see if the Turtles stay with the Foot Clan in the IDW Comics!  So many great things going on for Ninja Turtles, so what is going to come here on Cowabunga Corner?  Here are our hopes for 2016.

The wait of a new TMNT Film

Movies are something that people put a lot of hope into.  This one thing that takes a lot of work and a lot of money, in the hopes of millions of people going to see.  They are one of the few joys that people still get excited about in these hard days of unemployment and depression.  Many big cities, like Detroit, are falling apart as businesses are closing down.  Yet if you go to a movie theater, no matter what city you’re in, there is always people there.  What makes movies so appealing?  Why will we line up to see films that last only 2 hours when we can watch a TV series that last so much longer, with more character growth, comedy and action?  Whatever the reason, it leaves people asking me all the time “When is the new Ninja Turtle movie coming out?”  “What do you think the new Ninja Turtle Movie will be about?”
