Comic Con International: TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel


Power Con 2013

Power Con is coming up this month.  So I wanted to say a few things about this for the fans who do not know what Power Con is.  This is a convention that covers He-Man, ThunderCats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Held in California this year it hosts over 30 TMNT guests alone.  It is the perfect event for fans to come to for the chance to meet some of the great talents that bring the Turtles to life in the different medias.  See rare items and hang out with fellow fans.  Here’s a bit of what I’m hoping to see with Power Con 2013.

Review: Chiller Theater 2013

Conventions is one of my favorite pass times, getting to meet the neat people who’ve worked on Ninja Turtles.  Go to panels and learn more about the industry.  And hang out with fellow Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans.

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.

Turtle Con 2003 - Fan Booth

When we did Turtle Con 2000, the original plan was to make money to keep doing the booth each year.  Though we did not make money.  In 2001 we held the booth again, but less people came and it still cost as much to hold.  So in 2002 we skipped out on doing a booth at the convention.  When 2003 rolled around we discussed the idea of doing a convention booth for the return of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  So we pulled the money together and did a weekend of friends that took a lot of work and was a lot of fun.

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.

Tales of TMNT Guests #3

Since early on in my TMNT fandom, it has always been my dream to meet the people who’ve worked on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Somehow I’ve managed to meet a lot of those amazing people through the years, from actors, directors, creators, artists and more.  Dreams have been coming true for me, and one of the things I feel is very important is sharing how these dreams have come true so others may take the same road if they so choose.  Here, I’m sharing how I met some of the TMNT guests that have come into my life.

Convention Guide Part 1

This is a guide of how I handle conventions.  This is not saying it’s the right away to go around conventions as everyone enjoys conventions for different reasons.  Though my reasons for creating my own little guide is to get to see and meet guests, hang out with friends, and learn as much as I can with spending as little as possible.

Part 1: Deciding on going to the Event.

Whenever I start planning my trips I first search up all the events I can for guests that I have not met, or have made friends with and would like to see again.  After I get the events listed out I look at it in terms of which conventions would be affordable for me.  Usually conventions within a 13 to 16 hour driving distance wins me over the fastest, since I can get there cheaper than going to a convention across country.  After I narrow it down to the realistic list of conventions I could try and make it to, I list those conventions on the TMNT-L forums.

Tales of TMNT Guest 2

In January, I shared some stories of when I met some of the TMNT Guests.  People seemed to enjoy these stories. So here I am to share a few more of the TMNT Guest stories.

Tales of TMNT Guests #1

Throughout my years as a Ninja Turtle fan, one thing has always been so amazing that it’s kept me in this fandom and making memories that I’ll never forget and making new friends, whom I hope will be friends for a very long time.  These are some of my stories of meeting the people behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
