Comic Con International: TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel

 

Comic Con International 2014 came and went so fast this year.  With so much going on, I have not been able to share all the awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles events that went on over that weekend.  This year Comic Con went TMNT crazy with panels worth going too all weekend long.  The new movie was in Hall H, the Turtle Power Doc was held that same day, followed by Playmates Toys, Nickelodeon, and the 30th Anniversary Panel.  I want to share a full rundown of the weekend, though going to work my way up to that by sharing the panels first.  This here is the TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel.

Nickelodeon Resorts Retro Weekend TMNT Panel 2

 

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle events of 2014 are piling up from conventions, parties, Galleries and so much more.  With so many events happening, I have not been able to cover all of them.  Though I do try to cover each of the ones that I do manage to get too.  With videos, photos and write ups.  Most of these videos have not been posted yet, which is what I’m working on now.  Going through the events and sharing what I can.  This video is from Nickelodeon Resorts Hotel TMNT Retro Weekend, which was the kickoff of their Summer of Shell. 

Kodak Moments #18

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that have been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from the 25th anniversary tour.

Review: Double Dare Live

Growing up there was few channels that was aimed towards kids.  Saturday mornings was the gold mine of TV hours.  Though a few channels came to the rescue having cartoons and children programing all day.  Disney and Nickelodeon.  I loved Nickelodeon they had programs from cartoons to game shows that we could enjoy.  And everyone I knew loved the game show “Double Dare”.  I’ve gone years without thinking about it, till I was at the Nickelodeon Resorts, where we got to go see their live show of Double Dare.   Here is my review of this awesome live performances in Orlando.

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.

TMNT 2014 Movie Fan Gatherings!

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film coming to theaters on August 8th, some fans are already planning parties and meet ups across the country.  This is something I highly encourage.  Having friends there to share the moving going experience with is a great way to see this film.  To help with this idea we have started up a topic on TMNT-L to help people find TMNT fan gatherings and if their area is not listed they can add it.

Review: Midwest Media Expo

Conventions are one of my favorite things to do.  It takes you out of the stress for a weekend and places you somewhere that you can meet and hang out with people that enjoy the same stuff as you do.  Be this in your backyard or across the globe, conventions are like a second home to those who go.  Conventions usually start really small and have to work their way up, though in Michigan we got a new one called “Midwest Media Expo” which road the success of Youmacon to make it the largest first year event in Michigan.  I was at a guest at this convention and will love to share my review of a great weekend in Detroit.

 

Power Con 2013: Nickelodeon TMNT Panel

Power Con 2013 was a wonderful event for fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  With guests ranging from the original cartoon series to the Nickelodeon series.  There was a little something for everyone.  The Cowabunga Corner crew worked hard to cover every area of TMNT at Power Con.  Here is our video of the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles Nickelodeon panel.
