Kodak Moment #56

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 my mom in my bedroom at the old family home.

CCN: NECA TMNT Interview with Trevor!

 

San Diego Comic Art Gallery

In August 1994 I made a trip to Northampton, Mass with my mother and sister.  We were only going to get photos of the outside of Mirage Studios, but found something so much more exciting to do.  We learned of the Words & Pictures Museum.  A museum owned by Kevin Eastman, and nicknamed by the residents as “The Turtle Museum”.  Inside there was original TMNT art, other amazing comic artwork, areas where people could draw and even a store.

Video Review: TMNT Travel Kit

 

There are so many toys on the market for Ninja Turtles, that it’s easy to overlook the other times that can make great gifts.  We don’t want to leave some fun stuff out, so when it’s found at stores or donated to us for review we try to get it up here for all to see.  In this review, I am joined by our guest co-host, Alopex to share a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Travel Kit.  Based on the Nickelodeon series this TMNT travel kit has fun stuff compacted into one box of entertainment. 

Review: "Blast to the Past" a Big Golden Book

Back in the day the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys inspired characters that appeared in the original TMNT cartoon from Groundchuck, Dirtbag to Chrome Dome.  Other times ideas for the Turtles spread from the toys to both the cartoon and archie comics, mainly the Cyber Turtles.  Though this is the first time ever where the toys inspired a full TV Special that is even getting books.  Inspired by the Half Shell Heroes line of Ninja Turtle toys, we get “Blast to the Past”, which also uses the old Cave Turtles and Dino toys, for designs and storyline for this TMNT adventure.  Here is my review of the

CCN: IDW TMNT Interview Michael Dialynas

 

IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has been bringing us all sorts of cool artwork.  The new styles coming with guest artist all the time.  This makes it so the fans are not just excited to see what is going to happen next in the on going story, though we also want to see the new art style as it’s coming at us.  We all have our favorites and the ones we don’t really like, the best thing about that is there’s something for everyone.  At New York Comic Con 2015 I got to catch up with one of the new artist for IDW, Michael Dialynas.

Toy Fair 2015: Tuesday Walkthrough

 

Toy Fair kept us busy for four days.  Visiting booths, seeing new toys and talking to interesting people.  This event inspires me every year to add more to Cowabunga Corner, wanting to share more passion towards the world of entertainment.  The best way to really share Toy Fair, is by doing these walkthroughs so people can get an idea of some of the stories that are coming up.  This is our walkthrough for the last day of Toy Fair, Tuesday February 17th, 2015.

Living Dead Dolls Party 10/10/14 NYC

There’s a lot of great toy companies out there, so many that we can never show them all in our reviews of Toy Fair.  One of the companies that has stood out often to me is MEZCO.  I love their products and the lines of the toys they realize.  From Thundercats to Chucky these guys always have eye candy.  Which is why we support their press releases whenever they come our way.  One of their main products is the Living Dead Dolls, and while we were in New York City they held an awesome party for the Living Dead Dolls at Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum.  Here is my review of the event.

Review: TMNT Hat with sunglasses

There are these great ideas out there that just make you go ‘why didn’t I ever think about that’.  A lot of the time these ideas are only talked about and never seen to happen.  Other times they do make it to the store, some work out wonderful while others disappear with the times.  Right now one of these very cool ideas that will hopefully be around for a very long time is hitting the market!  Hats with sunglasses!  I personally LOVE the idea!  And not only is that notion wonderful, but the fact that they’re doing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hats with Sun Glasses make these even more amazing!  Here is my review of a youth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hat with glasses.

Review: TMNT Art Activity Set

There are a ton of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products coming out help inspire creativity and artistic skills.  From coloring books, paint sets, and so much more.  Of course growing up in a family of artist, I fully support doing reviews on these artistic outlets.  This review is of a Nickelodeon theme TMNT activity set.

A fun set, and for young kids they won’t be as picky about the lack of colors as the older kids are.  It’s got stuff to keep kids entertained at a good low cost.  Of course to see my thoughts and reactions to these items please do watch the video.
