Rise of the TMNT : Raphael's Design

The internet exploded shortly after the designs for the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was released in February.  As fans of all ages found themselves split down the middle upon the new look and feel for the Ninja Turtles, as there’s no question that this is a road they’ve never been on before.  I tried to write one story that would include my thoughts on the Facebook Live, designs, show overall and even the toys.  But it got long and hard to write, let alone read.  Which brings me here, where I’m going to give a short write up about each of the things revealed about “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.  Let’s talk about Raphael and his new design. 

Review: SideShow Collectibles Raphael

It’s me, Leonel, back again to review another of Sideshow Collectibles’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles amazing comiquettes! It’s my mission to tell all my fellow Tortuga Fans why these statues are all so precious, and why they’d be a centerpiece of any TMNT lover’s collection. You will listen NOW, Turtles Fans!

This week, I’m going over the second turtle I managed to get my grubby little fanboy hands on. He’s got the most attitude on the team, known for being cool but crude, and you can always count on him to throw the first punch. He’s mean, he’s green, and he’s got a serious case of Middle Child Syndrome. It’s the Nightwatcher himself; Raphael!

Review "Newtralized!" Nick TMNT #43

I know I am behind in my  reviews of the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  This has not been due to the lack of watching the show, but more the lack of time.  I have kept up every week with Nickelodeon’s TMNT.   One thing I want to do now, is take the time to catch up on the past episodes with some short reviews working my way up to the recent stuff.   Here is my review  of “Newtralized!” from Season 2.

Review: Half Shell Heroes Stealth Bike with Raphael

 

Review: Half Shell Heroes: Drop Copter with Raph and Casey with Metal Head

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures have gone through many changes through the 26 years they’ve been on the market.  One of the most recent versions of these toys by Playmates Toys is the Half Shell Heroes.  These are figured made for the younger fan base, but can be enjoyed by all fans.  Here is my review of Drop Copter with Raphael and Casey with Metalhead.

These are some awesome toys.  The drop copter reminds me of some of the toys I had as a child, the Raphael has an awesome expression on his face.  Casey and Metalhead are both cool.  Of course if you want to see my full report on them please just watch the video. 

Instagram TMNT 2014 Trip

Can you spot Turtle bug in this photo?Every year Miki and I have been traveling across country to California.  Usually on the trip we get to visit a few friends, go to a few landmarks and get to see some of the cool sites that is just that much more awesome in person.  On our trip across country this year I decided to do something for the Cowabunga Corner Instagram account, taking photos with the new Giant TMNT Movie toys.  Here’s a behind the scenes look at this drive across Country.

Review: Giant Raphael TMNT 2014

This week the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is coming to theater.  The reviews keep coming as we got the next one of the Giant TMNT toys based on the new 2014 film.  Playmate Toys is really good at making sure there is great things on the market for us Turtle fans, and this is one of those fun items.  Here is the review of the Raphael Giant TMNT 2014 Action Figure.

Much like the smaller Raphael toys for this new movie, this Raphael has the best paint job.  It’s really well done, and I love the red that they got on the toy more than the color I’ve been seeing with the movie images itself.  To see my full reaction to this toy, please check out the video.

Review: Combat Warrior Action Raphael 2014

With Michelangelo and Donatello reviews done for the Combat Warrior Action Figures, the next in the line up is Raphael.  These are action figures made by Playmates Toys based on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 movie that comes out on August 8th.  Getting as many of these reviews up for everyone as we get closer and closer to the release of the new film.  Here is my review of Combat Warrior Raphael!

Review: TMNT 2014 Movie Raphael Action Figure

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 Movie will be released in less than a month!  The best way to really get hyped for it is to check out the new merch and watch the trailers.  And there is merch appearing on the shelves from the Playmates TMNT Action Figures to the Crush Soda.  I am trying to review as many of the new Playmates TMNT 2014 Movie line, that I can before the movie comes out.  Here is the Raphael action figure review, this is the Raph not wearing the trench coat.

Review: TMNT Hat with sunglasses

There are these great ideas out there that just make you go ‘why didn’t I ever think about that’.  A lot of the time these ideas are only talked about and never seen to happen.  Other times they do make it to the store, some work out wonderful while others disappear with the times.  Right now one of these very cool ideas that will hopefully be around for a very long time is hitting the market!  Hats with sunglasses!  I personally LOVE the idea!  And not only is that notion wonderful, but the fact that they’re doing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hats with Sun Glasses make these even more amazing!  Here is my review of a youth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hat with glasses.
