Rise of the TMNT : Weapons

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”.  The new weapons that is very noticable with the Ninja Turtles.

Review Nick TMNT : MetalHead

Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has been great at bringing back characters that TMNT fans of the previous series would enjoy like Baxter Stockman, Shredder, and in away even Krang is here.  Thanks to panels at conventions we’ve seen that other characters we care about like LeatherHead and RatKing are coming to this new series.  This week’s episode brought us another character from the past, Metalhead.  In the original cartoon Metalhead was made by Krang, and programed with the Turtle’s personalities to attack them.  The Turtles win and take over Metalhead.  So now comes the fun of seeing how Metalhead is made for this whole new take on the TMNT.

Getting into Karate

Growing up was very hard for me, though my family life was great, school was a total nightmare with all the fights I had to go through.  People would gang up and attack me, and when asked why, it was always “because my friend was doing it”.  Most of the years I would not even attempt to hit back. I hated pain and it would go through my head, if I hate it why cause others to be in pain?  So instead, I would drop down and let them beat me up.  Most superheroes taught you that you needed superpowers or gadgets to be able to defend yourself.  So the idea of fighting back for defense did not come to me till I became a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
