A Short little Comic of shots from the new Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I tossed together for April Fools day.  Hope everyone is having a total blast today and remember to watch out for April Fools pranks!

Review: Nick TMNT #34 "The Good, the Bad and Casey Jones"

With a hockey masked pulled over his face, he beats the bad guys making them pay for all of their crimes.  His weapons are that you can find in a sports store, from baseball bat to golf club.  His mark has been made on most properties of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  His temper usually brings him closer to Raphael as a friend.  His goal is to keep the streets of New York clean of scum.  First introduced in the Mirage solo issue for Raphael, he landed his spot in the cartoons, toys and movies!  Now Casey Jones finds his way into the Nickelodeon Cartoon as the crime fighter we all know him for being.  Here is my review of “The Good, The Bad and Casey Jones”. 

Review: Nick TMNT #32 "Target: April O'Neil"

In Season one April O’Neil was clearly shown not only to be friend to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, she is also the target of the Kraang.  Which makes her all the more interest for Karai, who is out to destroy the Turtles.  Now with the new Foot Bots, Kara is not going to sit back she wants to destroy the Turtles.  Is April truly safe, living a life without the Turtles by her side?  Here is my review of Nickelodeon’s TMNT episode “Target: April O’Neil”

Review: Nick TMNT #30 "Mutagen Man Unleashed"

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series enjoys bringing characters from our past back to get the fans excited within their new cartoon series.  One of the characters we were teased with in Season one is Mutagen Man.  Used once in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series, this character is known by fans more for the action figure which was on the market.  There are those of us who remember the young man who went to deliver a package and fell into Shredder’s Mutagen.  Now we get a whole new look at him in action in episode 30 of Nickelodeon’s TMNT  “Mutagen Man Unleashed”.

Review: TMNT 2014 Valentines Lenticular

Only a few more days till Valentine's Day and we still have more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stuff to share with everyone.  It’s funny how much they can really do different at stores for Ninja Turtles Valentines as Nickelodeon is going all out to give us different products from different companies.  One of those companies is Paper Magic Group which brought us some of my favorite new products, the Ninja Turtles Mailboxes.  I am now looking at the TMNT Lenticular Valentines, which is also made by Paper Magic Group.

Review: Valentines Day Tattoos

This be the season of love in the air and Valentine’s Day stuff all over the place.  Every story carrying something slightly different from the last and it just seems to keep coming.  For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles we’ve had everything from glow sticks, erasers, chocolates to stickers showing up at the stores.  This time we are focusing on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tattoos.  That’s right, Valentine Day Tattoos.  What will they think of next?  Here’s my review of this new item you can get for your children to give out.

Review: Nick TMNT #27 "The Mutation Situation"

What a season, so much Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merch released this year that there was no way to have a review from every item that came out.  I hope that everyone enjoyed all of the reviews that we did share, with great toys.  With the Holiday Season done we are going to try and focus the site back on the Nickelodeon Cartoon and the IDW Comics, as well as keeping the toy reviews coming.  In February 2014 Toy Fair is coming up, which means that toys are still a high focus point for us here at Cowabunga Corner.  

Random Collection #26

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.

CCN: Playmates Toys TMNT Interview 2013

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys are selling off the shelves as new toys are coming out all the time based on the new Nickelodeon series.  I got the chance to sit down with Pat from Playmates Toys and talk to him about the 2013 line of TMNT action figures.  In this talk I ask him about the sizes of toys, the missing joints of characters and even what toy lines are to come?  Movie Toys?  IDW Series?  New Playsets?  A lot is covered in this interview!

Review: Operation Breakout

In the first episode of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles they set up the story line that April’s father, Kirby O’Neil is kidnapped by the Krang and the Turtles have to save him.  Only showing him in a few episodes we have gone almost all the way through the first season without Kirby O’Neil being rescued.  With the season finally around the corner we are now getting to touch base with that storyline as Donatello finds himself on a mission to save Kirby.  Here is my review of Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episode 24 “Operation: Break Out”.
