King

Review: Nick TMNT #38 "Of Rats and Men"

In the first season of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles they brought the Rat King into the show.  Showing that he wants the rule the city and wants Splinter to work for him.  Even though he was defeated, the war is far from over.  In the episode “Of Rats and Men” from season 2 of TMNT, Rat King makes his next move.  Here is my review for “Of Rats and Men”, an episode that would creep anyone with musophobia out.

Review: Cockroach Terminator & Rat King by Playmates Toys

This summer Playmates Toys released two more toys towards the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  It was time for villains to be brought more out, and we got two villains for everyone to enjoy.  They released the Cockroach Terminator and The Rat King.  Both characters seen in Season 1 of Nickelodeon’s TMNT.  This is my video review of these toys.

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.

Random Collection Piece #18

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 weekly to share one item in my collection.  This week I’m covering the TMNT Bike Horn from 1993.

Review: Nickelodeon TMNT "I, Monster

IMonster 2012 Nickelodeon gave us a great ride with their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  As we had 12 amazing episodes of action, comedy, heart, and pizza.  We watched as the Turtles ventured to the surface for the first time, had their first taste of pizza and first real fight.  We saw the Turtles learn to fight as a team, make new friends and see the danger of facing the Shredder.  We were on the edge of our seats as Dogpound and Fishface would work to destroy the Turtles, the Kraang kept making more mutants and Shredder beat the Turtles down.  Then we had a break, weeks with no new episodes of TMNT as everyone kept asking when are they returning.

Movie Review: Brave

Families are very important, though sometimes traditions can drive a family apart.  A lot of different movies have shown this, people pushing traditions on kids and instead of grasping onto this family lifestyle the kids see something else that they want in life.  Friction happens between family members and we get different types of movies where one family member is trying to get someone else in their family to see things their way.  Sometimes this lesson is learned by putting family members into each other shoes, though other movies take a totally different step.  The movie Brave by Disney and Pixar is one of those movies with a “Brother Bear” type twist.
