Review: LEGO Leatherhead minifigure

For many years, LEGO has been a staple of many childhoods around the world. As adult collectors, we appreciate LEGO toys not only for their imaginative concepts, but for the amazing quality that is put into each piece.

Review: Motor City Comic Con 2013

In 1996 I made friends with a woman who took the nickname Leonardo on TMNT-L. Before knowing her, I went to SiFi conventions only, though she introduced me to comic book conventions. The first Comic Con I went to was Mid-Ohio Comic Con, I’ve only been to that event a few times.

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.

Convention Tales: Toronto Fan Expo 2005

With all the conventions that I go to, I’d like to share some fun memories from different conventions.  This time it’ll be a day at Toronto Fan Expo in 2005.  I met up with some friends for the event and even made some new friends at this convention, who I still hang out with to this day.

2011 TMNT Merch Review!

In 2011, a lot of Ninja Turtle items came out to stores.  We had T-Shirts, mugs, backpacks, pajamas, blankets, and more.  Spencer Gifts and Hot Topic were two of my top stores for 2011, because they carry these items, most of which is displaying images of the original toon Turtle design upon them.  I am guilty of buying a lot of these items that have come out, so in this write up I’ll like to share about some of my favorite TMNT items from 2011.

Michigan Action Figure Expo!

I have been going to conventions since I was a little kid. So it’s not uncommon to see me wandering the halls of a convention decked head to toe in Ninja Turtles.  Some conventions have become use to me being there yearly, while others I show up at for only the names upon the guest list.  I have worked in all sorts of different areas for conventions from dealer rooms to running panels to even Convention Operations.
