Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the big talk right now.  Nickelodeon is now airing the new series that is giving a whole new spin to the Ninja Turtles.  One of the big changes they have made is the new April O’Neil, which looks and acts different from any version of April.  In honor of the new series we are going through and doing reviews of the new Fall toys based on Rise of the TMNT by Playmates Toys.  In this episode we are taking a close look at April.

Review: Nickelodeon TMNT Ooze

The Turtles started off as four little Turtles that were covered in a strange goo that mutated them into the Ninjas we know and love to this day.  This goo has gone by the name ooze and/or Mutagen.  Back in the 1990’s Playmates Toys brought ooze into the TMNT toy line.  Now for the new Nickelodeon series the ooze has returned.  This video review is of the Playmates Toys ooze that has come out for the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

Review: Cockroach Terminator & Rat King by Playmates Toys

This summer Playmates Toys released two more toys towards the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  It was time for villains to be brought more out, and we got two villains for everyone to enjoy.  They released the Cockroach Terminator and The Rat King.  Both characters seen in Season 1 of Nickelodeon’s TMNT.  This is my video review of these toys.

Review: TMNT Toys - Baxter, Snakeweed, Leatherhead

I use to think filming something meant that we will have it up in a month, maybe two months if it’s not part of the Cowabunga Corner season.  Though with summer long trips to gather interviews and event coverage across the United States some files end up getting dust on them as they wait to be discovered.  With videos sitting from March, May and June for Cowabunga Corner reviews, there’s a lot for me to go through and get up here onto the site. 

Poll: Blind Bag TMNT Toy

At Toy Fair 2013 Playmate Toys gave out Blind bag TMNT toys. I normally leave toys in package from event, though I'm not use to not knowing what toy it is. So now I sit here wondering if I should open this toy for the collection or put it away in package. So for the first time I am asking for the advice from the fandom. If I open it, I will do a review of the toy.

Random Collection #21

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.
