A Great Time to be a Turtle Fan

Awesome 2013 Holiday ads include TMNTBack in the early 1990’s everywhere you went was Ninja Turtles.  They were the #1 Toys, they were the hottest show on TV, their films were breaking their own records, and they even got their live tour.  Christmas times the stores would be filled with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Once the mid 90’s rolled around the wonderful sight of Turtles became hard to find.  As the entertainment kept coming through reruns on USA express, The Next Mutation, Mirage and Image Comics there was sight of bringing the Turtles back to the spotlight.  Even when 4Kids launched, never could it bring back that early year Turtle fan feeling.  Until now.

Random Collection #28

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.  This one is about my very first DVD.

Epic TMNT Party is happening!

Fandom is a wonderful thing when we come together.  And I can’t be more excited to say congrats to Jared.  Jared is a TMNT fan who is following his dream of throwing a huge party.  To throw the size of the party he wanted to throw he needed help from the fandom.  And the fandom answered to his call for help with donating over $38,000 towards the party and the tickets are still on sale!  What type of party would get so much funding?  One that has something for everyone who decides to go.

Movie Review: "Star Trek: Into the Dark"

Growing up I have always known of Star Trek, it was one of those things that I would see on the TV often. While no one in my family is Trekkies, we would watch the series when they were on. I personally enjoyed Next Generation and Voyager. Though by no means would I say I’m a Trekkie or even a Trekker.

Review: Free Comic Book Day 2013

The first Saturday in May is a yearly event that people can enjoy. As Comic Book stores receive Free Comic Books to pass out to anyone who shows up. In the Detroit area each Comic Book store does their own thing and the event takes place in the store. This is how I thought it was done everywhere, though this year there was two events I wanted to go to that was out of state. I was in for a shock with how one town runs their free comic book day like a Holiday.

Fandom comes from within

Fandom

Over 20 years of being a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, many memories have filled my head, some of which I hold very close to my heart.  Even though time has changed, the memories I will never forget are of those who have touched me through the fandom.  I’ll always be thankful for any lessons learned, gifts given, or time spent with me.  This is a chance to share some of those times.  So I would like to share a story that dates back to before the internet, to a younger me reading the letter pages of the Mirage Comic Books, to a Turtle Fan who still thrives in the fandom to this day and the lesson I hold from meeting her online.
