Review: TMNT 2014 Raphael in Disguise

When it comes to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures from Playmates Toys, you can usually find them listed on the back of the box or in their paper, though this toy is a surprise.  Based on the Ninja Turtles 2014 film, this toy is Raphael in Disguise.  Found at Wal-Mart in their display for the new movie toys, this is something collectors can enjoy.  Check out the video review for Raphael in Disguise.

Review: TMNT 2014 Foot Action Figure

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 is coming to theaters in a few short weeks!  Here on Cowabunga Corner I wanna keep bringing out the movie stuff and sharing my thoughts on this film.  We’ve gone through most of the action figures with only a few to share still.  This review is of the TMNT 2014 Movie Foot Action Figure.

Well… um… not my favorite toy.  Not because it’s not a good action figure, really is a well made action figure with a lot of working joints… it’s more the fault of the movie choices.  You want to learn what I don’t like about these toys, just watch the video review.

Review: TMNT 2014 Shredder Action Figure

From the very beginning of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles history there has been one villain that everyone knows and hates.  That is the Shredder.  Until now, the Shredder has always been Oroku Saki.  On August 8th, 2014 a new TMNT movie comes to the theaters in which Saki will be replaced for the first time as the true Shredder.  Or is he?  That question is yet to be answered.  Though I do talk about my theories here, in this review of the Playmates Toys Shredder action based on the new movie. 

Review: TMNT Kraft Mac & Cheese

There are a lot of different foods out there that people relate too when they hear Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  First it’s usually pizza, followed by the pies, then the cereal and the list goes on.  This year a company jumped onboard with the TMNT title for their food, one which has me very happy.  Kraft has decided to make Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mac & Cheese!  Here is my review of this amazing idea!

Review: TMNT 2014 Movie Leonardo Action Figure

With the 2014 Ninja Turtle movie coming to theaters next month, I am going over the products and reviewing as many as I can.  Playmates Toys is doing an awesome job at getting toys out onto the market for us fans.  I am excited to get the chance to pick these toys up and go over them, comparing them to what we see for the movie already and some of the past Ninja Turtles toys.  Here is my review of Leonardo 2014 TMNT Movie Action Figure.

Summer of Shell: Nickelodeon Suites Resort

On Wednesday, June 11th 2014 I received a phone call from Michele while she was driving to Orlando, Florida. She was on her way to the Nickelodeon Suites Resort for Retro Weekend, a TMNT event part of the Summer of Shell. Summer of Shell is an event made to celebrate TMNT in one of it's biggest years yet. With the 30th Anniversary, 2014 movie, and epic storyline of the Nick series, the turtle-power-train shows no signs of slowing down!

This event was so big, that one review just won't be able fit it all in. I'll be covering various aspects separately, starting with the hotel itself.

Review: TMNT 2014 Movie Raphael Action Figure

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 Movie will be released in less than a month!  The best way to really get hyped for it is to check out the new merch and watch the trailers.  And there is merch appearing on the shelves from the Playmates TMNT Action Figures to the Crush Soda.  I am trying to review as many of the new Playmates TMNT 2014 Movie line, that I can before the movie comes out.  Here is the Raphael action figure review, this is the Raph not wearing the trench coat.

Review: TMNT 2014 Michelangelo Action Figure

My favorite Turtle since the first cartoon has almost always been Michaelangelo.  Mikey is the Turtle that has reminded me the most of myself, creative, loves life, a people person, and often just wants to find away to make the family happy.  Often because of this he is the first Turtle I review when new products come out.  This time I am reviewing the new "Ninja Turtles" Movie Michelangelo action figure from the new 2014 film by Playmates Toys. 

Random Review #36


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 a 4Kids Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles book called “The Big Sewer Surprise”.
