Cowabunga Corner #9

In this episode I talk about the Coming Out of Their Shells Tour, that went around in 1990 through 1991. A fun show, made for children. Picked on by many fans, though it was never intended for the older fans. Seeing it live is far better than watching it on TV.

If you have stories to share about the Coming Out of Their Shells Tour, please do share!

In this episode I talk about the playmate toys. I share some old videos of my collection in this video, from Christmas videos to set ups I did around my room. I show how some of the toys are stored through the year before they’re rotated into the display.

If anyone from Playmates is reading this, I do beg of you to release the new toys that you already have done. There are fans waiting to see them hit the shelves and looking for to owning the toys. So please, do hear us and give us something for 2010 to look forward to

Cowabunga Corner #5

In this episode we show another area of the Ninja Turtle History that Cowabunga Corner will cover, this being Kevin Eastman’s “Words & Pictures Museum”.

The Museum was a comic book arts Museum, though the locals called it “The Ninja Turtles Museum”. They had a wonderful set up of original art work from all sorts of comic books, and even statues of the Ninja Turtles on the interactive floor.

Cowabunga Corner #4

In this episode I speak about “Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation”. A series that was loved when it was aired, though is now left in the dark for the most part.

I personally still enjoy the Next Mutation and encourage anyone who have not seen it to give it a try before judging it. A try is more than the first few episodes. Check out some of the later episodes like “Trust Dr. Quease” and “Unchain My Heart”.

In this episode, I do use a little bit of footage from my visit to the set of the Next Mutation. There will be an episode more focused on the visit, where I talk about what I did and saw. Along with more video footage from the set.

Cowabunga Corner #3

In 2009 a TMNT movie made for TV came out called “Turtles Forever” it was aired by 4Kids in November. This movie ia cross over between the different versions of the Ninja Turtles and is a movie that all fans should give a chance. People may be surprised with the way it turns out.

In this episode I will cover my thoughts on “Turtles Forever”. What I liked and did not like about the movie. I warn you now, there are spoilers about the movie through the blog. So see the movie before watching the blog. These are just my personal views of the movie, it does not reflect the views of any other fan.

 

Please feel free to do a review of “Turtles Forever” and connect them as a video reply.

Cowabunga Corner #2

In this episode I cover the tour that took place in 2009 for 25 years of TMNT.

They had a Thomas Bus made into the Turtle Van on the outside. On the Inside, we had a Ninja Turtles Museum with toys, videos, photos, and even storyboard art work. This Tour went across the United States, stopping in cities for meet and greet with fans. This was free to the public, so people could go through and see the history of the Turtles.

The main crew on this trip was Mike and Aaron, as they would drive this bus from city to city. These two people were the only ones who appeared at every stop of the tour.

Cowabunga Corner #1

I decided to do a video blog to cover a bunch of TMNT stuff and a few other subjects along the way. The first few video blogs will mainly focus on the Ninja Turtles though. This one is my introduction blog, who I am, how I became a fan and what this blog is about.

Hope everyone enjoys. I do ask in the blog for video replies of how the viewers became TMNT fans, please feel free to join in on this and share your story.

Movie Review Corner: Ninja Assassin

The title alone made me want to go see this movie. Who honestly doesn’t love ninjas, right?

This movie is definitely for those who just need to turn their brains off for a while, enjoy some martial arts insanity, and don’t mind buckets of gore. Yes, gore. There was so much blood being sprayed EVERYWHERE in this movie. It took me by surprise how many dismembered limbs were flying around and how much brains I saw while watching this movie. Their weapons sliced through bone like it was made out of butter. As one person puts it: “Ninja Assassin opens with a scene of such unmitigated gore as to classify itself more as splatter film than action flick.”

The most interesting parts are those that show the young Raizo learning the way of the ninja. It’s a brutal upbringing, but one would expect so of trained assassins. Doubt Splinter was THAT strict.
