Seeing New York City with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles As My Guide

I love visiting New York City and getting lost. I have a horrible sense of direction. I cannot describe to you just how bad it is and how frustrating it can be at times. That being said, when I’m not on anyone’s time but my own and in an interesting place like Manhattan, it can be kind of nice. I usually end up finding something new. I used to visit New York and get lost once or twice a year, but more and more people I cared about kept moving there and making it harder to take time for myself and do tourist stuff. Last week I decided to take a trip for me and here’s what happened.

Review: New York Comic Con 2015

Every year I try to make it out to New York Comic Con.  This is the second time where I did not think I was going to make it for the event, until the last month.  New York Comic Con is a huge event filled with panels, dealers, and guests.  For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans it’s become one of the best events to go too for a yearly dose of Turtle fun.  Here is my review of New York Comic Con 2015.

Living Dead Dolls Party 10/10/14 NYC

There’s a lot of great toy companies out there, so many that we can never show them all in our reviews of Toy Fair.  One of the companies that has stood out often to me is MEZCO.  I love their products and the lines of the toys they realize.  From Thundercats to Chucky these guys always have eye candy.  Which is why we support their press releases whenever they come our way.  One of their main products is the Living Dead Dolls, and while we were in New York City they held an awesome party for the Living Dead Dolls at Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum.  Here is my review of the event.

NYCC 2009 4Kids TMNT

 

New York City Comic Con is going on this weekend.  If you’re not there today, you’re missing out on the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel.  Thanks to some good friends, I will be at New York Comic Con to cover this event for Cowabunga Corner.  While waiting for that panel to be shared here, we want to make sure our viewers have something to keep them in the spirit of New York.  Which got me to go through my old video footage of New York Comic Con to look for something us Turtle fans can respect.  For my throwback of the event, I found a video taken in 2009 of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animators Panel”. 

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.

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 a shot of me in Central Park at 

Review: NYC Comic Con 2013 TMNT Panel

New York City Comic Con is doing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle panel each year for the new Nickelodeon series.  Very fun panels worth going to.  As I mentioned in the New York City Comic Con review I want to share this panel with everyone.  Which brings us to my review of the TMNT panel with a wonderful set of guests on stage.

Review: New York Comic Con 2013

In October 2013 we had New York City Comic Con.  One of my favorite conventions of the year.  Normally I get my reviews up shortly after they happen, though once I got home from the convention this year a few of my close family members was having some bad health issues so I was not able to do a review.  Really one of the family members that was with me for New York City Comic Con was having her health issues while there, Miki with her broken neck.  At the time of NYC Comic Con we did not know it was broken, though we knew she was injured.  Here is my memories from one of the best East Coast conventions of 2013.

Review NYC Comic Con 2012

New York Comic Con is one of those events that you either really enjoy or not.  And since the first one, I have made it a goal to get to New York Comic Con yearly.  This event has almost as much as San Diego International Comic Con for the fans.  Actually, it has one thing going for it that San Diego does not.  It is for the fans, meaning fans are put first.  Making it a much more relaxing event.  Even though they have big crowds, exciting panels and an impressive dealer room, they have been able to keep it down to earth and very friendly.  The big question is, have they been able to keep this feel as the convention grows?
