1991 Coming Out of Their Shells Tour Chicago

It was 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going strong around the world, from the movies, toys, cartoons, and the live concert was still going around the country.  This was a smaller show that was edited down from the original “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”.  They came to Michigan to do a show.  I was staying at my aunt’s during that time and was not able to convince anyone to take me to the show, since I saw the full show back in October.  I was crushed. I wanted to see it alive again so badly.  Disappointed that I missed the show, the only thing I got was a poster that was badly beaten left hanging in a store on their pinboard.

Review IDW Micro TMNT #8 Fugitoid

As I’ve been reading the IDW comics, I keep getting more impressed with the new roads each of the characters are taking.  Recently, we’re getting so many issues back to back it’s amazing to see all of these comics still throwing surprises at us.  Today a new issue came to stand, it’s the last set of the eight Micro Series issues, and this time it’s about the Fugitoid.  I was wondering how they were going to throw him into the mix as we already had so much going on with the IDW comics.  Where could a new character come in and how will just pumping the story with characters help move the story along?

Review: Rob Paulsen's Talkin Toons TMNT

 

In 1989, I was introduced to a TV series that changed my life.  Through the years of knowing this show I have had some really cool adventures, met some wonderful people and have grown an amazing collection.  And the full time I’ve held a deep respect for those who made this all happen for me, the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon series.  This show was truly what got me hooked to Ninja Turtles and I could never thank the cast and crew enough for how much it has helped me in my life.  Really, I never knew if I’d get the chance to meet the cast of the show.  So when Rob Paulsen announced that the cast was going to be on his podcast Talkin Toons, as well as it being recorded live, I knew this was an event I could not miss.

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series #7 April

IDW Publishing is keeping us Turtle fans on our toes as every week something new is coming to the shelves for us to go after.  This week is no exception to the rule.  Today, two TMNT books come to the stores, one in which a lot of fans have been waiting for, the next issue of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series, April O’Neil.  April gets her own story.  Will there be action?  How will this go without the Turtles there to liven up the moment?  Here are my thoughts on the April O’Neil issue of the TMNT Micro Series.

TMNT Nickelodeon Toy Review #2

On July 5th, I shared a review of the TMNT toys that came out and are based off of the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line.   At that time, I only covered the four Turtles with promise to cover the other characters when I could.  I’ve finally gotten my hands on a second set of th  Nickelodeon toy line to be able to share this review.  Just like before, I did a video of me opening the toys.  So here’s the video and then we’ll get onto a bit of a written review. 

Review: SDCC TMNT Panel 2012

Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is coming out on September 29th, 2012. With this information there was no way that San Diego Comic Con could pass up on having a totally awesome TMNT panel, bringing in the cast and creative team behind the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Cowabunga Corner crew, as well as many other TMNT fans, gathered for this event to try and be some of the first to see and hear the news about this new series.

Review: IDW TMNT #13

For 12 wonderful issues, IDW Publishing has brought us a steady pace of awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle issues.  With the great team of Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman and Dan Duncan, the kept us on our toes from issue to issue.  I really have felt it and loved each of those 12 issues.  I speak highly of this comic to many people as I tell everyone about the new comics from IDW, wIth the twists and turns they threw at us.  It’s been outstanding and a real treat.  With issue 13 though, sad news has come to us all.  Dan Duncan has another job and is now no longer part of the new TMNT series.

Review: IDW TMNT #12

A year of stories have been building up to a big fight, Ninja Turtles vs. The Foot!  IDW Publishing has been keeping us on our toes with all these comics building more and more on the characters and stories.  Tom Waltz has been bringing us through this world building up the tension.  With Dan’s artwork flowing right through.  What a comic.  And here issue 12 is finally here bringing us a battle of good vs. evil.  Though this does not end the story, this is only the beginning.

Review: IDW Color TMNT Classic #3

Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume, the classics!  The start of it all.  If it were not for these comics we would of never had a game, cartoon, movies, toys and so much more.  Eastman and Laird brought these characters to life through print.  Through the years, sadly, the comics have become a lost art, until recently when IDW picked up the title of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and decided to reprint the original comics alongside with their brand new Ninja Turtle story.  The Ultimate collection is for the serious collectors who want the best details.

Review: IDW TMNT #11

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle history, the first battle with the Shredder is usually highlighted as a fight for the Turtles.  The original comics Splinter sent the Turtles to kill the Shredder, which is what they were originally trained for.  In the first cartoon series, Splinter was kidnapped by a robot and the Turtles had to fight Shredder and the Foot to save Splinter.  In the movies, Splinter was kidnapped by the Foot Clan.  We don’t even get to see how that happened, but the Turtles have to fight the Shredder.
