Review of "Rise of the TMNT : Facebook Live"

The internet exploded shortly after the designs for the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was released in February.  As fans of all ages found themselves split down the middle upon the new look and feel for the Ninja Turtles, as there’s no question that this is a road they’ve never been on before.  I tried to write one story that would include my thoughts on the Facebook Live, designs, show overall and even the toys.  But it got long and hard to write, let alone read.  Which brings me here, where I’m going to give a short write up about each of the things revealed about “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.  Starting with their

Midwest Media Expo 2015 TMNT Cartoon Panel


I always enjoy sharing information about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with fellow fans.  Midwest Media Expo is one of the fun conventions that brings me in yearly to talk Turtles, where I often get to share the floor with Andre from Black Nerd Comedy.  Where the two of us can bring more TMNT history to life for fans.  Together we cover whatever topic is at hand, in this panel we’re talking about the history of the TMNT Cartoon series.

CCI 2015 Nickelodeon TMNT Panel


One of the events I look most forward to each year is the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Panel at San Diego Comic Con International.  They always share awesome character designs for the upcoming season, bring in the voice actors and producers and share lots of fun stuff.  These panels have been at Comic Con International since 2012.  This year they did something different, it is the first year that they brought in someone from outside of Nickelodeon to Moderate the panel having Andre from Black Nerd Comedy.  Here’s the panel and my review of the panel.

Rock the Half Shell


“Crime waves high with muggings mysterious, all police and detectives are furious.”  When I hear that line in a song I get very excited as it’s one of my favorite songs from my childhood.  “T U R T L E Power” from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie.  This remains one of my favorite TMNT songs of all time, equal to only to the original TMNT cartoon series theme song.  This song is by Partners in Kryme, so my excitement when I found out that they were doing a new song in 2014 for Ninja Turtles had me excited.  First time I heard it was at the Epic Party, at that time we could not share the song.  Though now it is up and ready to be shared, the video here is “Rock the Half Shell”. 

Review: Midwest Media Expo 2015


If there is one thing I truly enjoy. It is a great convention, the gathering of fans of tv, comics, movies,books and games alike can join together for epic memories. That is why I try to go to any con that invites me. Last month was Midwest Media Expo, and it was totally awesome. Here is my review of a fun weekend of guests, food and fun!

Returning to Midwest Media Expo 2015


The past few years Cowabunga Corner has been invited to different events.  Getting to share collection pieces, talk with fellow Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, and host panels.  One of those events really stood out, with how great the guests were treated, the variety of types of guests and events, and the mixture of panels that I got to take part in last year.  This was Midwest Media Expo, an event in Detroit Michigan meant for many different types of fandoms to come together as a community, for a fun weekend.  When they asked for me to return for 2015, I was happy to say yes.  Here’s a bit about  Midwest Media Expo.

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.
