Random Collection Piece #6

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.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection. Starting now, we’re going to post a random collection piece weekly.

The Shape of a Turtle Chapter 1

Welcome to one of the fanfics that I have written for the TMNT mailing list last year. This story is told from the eyes of Leonardo, and has some of my own characters, in fact a lot of the characters in the W's and the four Shapers are my own characters. Hope you enjoy the story. A part from the story will come up each week.

 

Movie Review: Ted

Over the years cartoons got known to be something for children or family entertainment.  Though some shows have rocked that boat to remind people that animation is for people of all ages including adults.  Shows like “The Simpsons”, “Family Guy” and “South Park” have got people a bit more wary of thinking that every cartoon is for kids.  Though when you see a soft fluffy teddy bear being animated on the big screen, it’s hard to think it’s not for children.  Which leads us to a new movie coming to theaters this week, “Ted”.

Review: Nickelodeon TMNT Website

In 2009, the news of the sale of Ninja Turtles to Viacom also meant that ninjaturtles.com would no longer be ran by Mirage Studios.  The website soon had an image showing that the new site was to be launched in 2011, as we watched a lot of the areas disappear from the website that we all knew and loved.  Though some cool areas remained, like the history of the old TV series and movies.  We waited for the new site.  But 2011 came and went with no new changes.  Finally, June 2012 the website changes, but is this change for the better?

Random Collection Piece #5

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.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.

TMNT Movie on Hold

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle history there has often been the promise of a new movie, with it falling through in the end.  This past year a lot of talk has been going on about the new film, which was originally promised for 2011, as 2011 rolled around we were told it was going to be released in 2012 and then it got pushed to 2013.  When people came to me asking for my thoughts about the film my main response stood at “I’m more excited about the new cartoon series by Nickelodeon in fall 2012.”  I also told people “I don’t get my hopes up about movies, until I see the movie in filming stages.”.   So was I surprised when I heard that the new Ninja Turtle Film is on hold?

World Steam Expo 2012 Review

This last month, I went to the World Steam Expo in Dearborn, Michigan.  This is a great event held yearly based around the fandom of Steam Punk with guests, panels, concerts and a great dealer room.  This is Cowabunga Corner's second year covering the World Steam Expo.  We arrived at the event on Friday and spent the full weekend floating around checking out different events and talking to many people.

Intro to "The Shape of a Turtle"

Hey everyone, coming soon to Cowabunga Corner is a fanfic I wrote back when I was still in High School, 1996 through 1997. I mainly wrote this throughout the day at school and copying it onto the computer when I got home. What gave me the idea of doing this story was making a fanfic that would crossover with some characters that I created back in 1991, "The Shapers".

Raphael... Death?

This is a Fanfic that I wrote back in the 1999.  Hope everyone enjoys.

Raphael...  Death?

Michaelangelo jumps down and looks up at a Pizza place.   This must be the place.   He thought to himself, as he looks around.   So, where is he?   Michaelangelo, pulls a long coat and hat over himself, covering his looks, as he stands outside.   The dark sky  covers the city like a blanket as the light reflecting from the city hides the millions of stars that could be out that night.   The full moon makes him think of the horror movie he just got done watching.

Michaelangelo takes one more look at a watch hidden in his pocket.  Oh man, he's late. He walks into the building, looking up at the new signs, and the smell of the fresh pizza.   I can't believe he's late.  Michaelangelo goes over and takes a seat.

"Hey, what would you like today?"

Why do I like TMNT?

Ever since I became a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I have been asked, why do I like TMNT?  A question people seem most interested in, hoping that I have some strange answer that will bring it all to light.  Every fan has a different answer for this, as there’s so many different reasons to like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, be it their character designs, their weapons, their enemies, their personalities, their friends and so much more.  Though the real truth about this question is there is no real answer.  If I only liked one thing about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then most likely by now I would have moved into another fandom.  So in this write up I’m going to share the many things I like about the Turtles and why.
