BBO : TMNT Hero Clix 2

There’s a lot of products that come out these days as blind bags.  These are toys that you never know which one of the collection you’re going to get till you open it.  For me, it’s a collectors worse nightmare cause you end up buying the same toy over and over looking for the entire collection.  Though I would be lying, if I say it’s not fun opening the bag.  Almost like opening a present, with the excitement build up to see what’s next.  So I decided to film blind bag openings to share with all of you.  This weekly video will be short opening of bling bag toys.  This first set of blind bags to be shared is the “Hero Clixs” Limited edition Heroes in a Half Shell Series II.

Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : Secrets of the Sewers

Preliminary concept digital models, Sewer Lair—Common Room.If there’s one place I truly enjoy seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it’s in Museums.  The first time I saw this was the Words & Pictures Museum, which remains my favorite Museum I’ve ever been too.  They even had an Exhibit for the Next Mutation, and Turtles were always on display there.  Since then I do look and have found TMNT in a few other museum settings, but nothing like what is happening this year as The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has set up the “Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : Secrets of the Sewer” Exhibit!

TMNT Box #1

 

There a lot of Turtle fans out there that don’t have the time or money to just go out and collect everything that hit the shelves.  This does not mean that those fans do not want to get hands on cool TMNT stuff, it just says that some things slip away before they can jump into the action.  If you’re a fan who wants TMNT stuff, if you like surprises, and if you want to save money this is something for you.  This is the TMNT Box.

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.

 

Building TMNT Lair 2012 playset: Part 1

The biggest of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Playmates Toy is the new Sewer Lair playset.  This is the third lair that has come out to the market in Ninja Turtle history.  The first one was based for the original cartoon series in the early 1990’s, the second sewer lair was made for the 4Kids series in the mid 2000’s, and now we have the lair based off of the Nickelodeon series.  Each time the toy gets larger with more pieces and more tricks for kids to have fun with.  This is one of two videos of me putting this lair together.

World Steam Expo 2012 Review

This last month, I went to the World Steam Expo in Dearborn, Michigan.  This is a great event held yearly based around the fandom of Steam Punk with guests, panels, concerts and a great dealer room.  This is Cowabunga Corner's second year covering the World Steam Expo.  We arrived at the event on Friday and spent the full weekend floating around checking out different events and talking to many people.

Review: Shell Shock in Nickelodeon Universe

For the last few months, we have been talking big time about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles new ride coming to Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America.  Well as mentioned yesterday, the time has arrived for this awesome ride as Turtle fans are gathering to see the ride go into action. A few of us went to the park a day early to explore and see what all is offered and to our surprise, there was a light opening for the TMNT ride so people there could give it a try.   This gave the workers a chance to work the kinks out before the real Grand Opening.
