FanFic: The Day Raph Saw the Light

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan fiction. This is often one of the things that fans rely on when we get very little coming out for the Ninja Turtles. Back in the late 1990s, I would read and write TMNT fanfics. Though shortly after the 4Kids series aired in 2003, more TMNT fans appeared online and it became very, very hard for me to keep up with the different fanfics online. I would like to share a few of these fanfics here on Cowabunga Corner. I'm going to start off with one of my shortest TMNT fanfics. It's been updated with my improved writing skills and my editor. This story is all told by Raphael's point of view and if I lined up my stories in a timeline, this would be one of the later ones.

TMNT Nickelodeon Toy Review #2

On July 5th, I shared a review of the TMNT toys that came out and are based off of the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line.   At that time, I only covered the four Turtles with promise to cover the other characters when I could.  I’ve finally gotten my hands on a second set of th  Nickelodeon toy line to be able to share this review.  Just like before, I did a video of me opening the toys.  So here’s the video and then we’ll get onto a bit of a written review. 

Getting into Karate

Growing up was very hard for me, though my family life was great, school was a total nightmare with all the fights I had to go through.  People would gang up and attack me, and when asked why, it was always “because my friend was doing it”.  Most of the years I would not even attempt to hit back. I hated pain and it would go through my head, if I hate it why cause others to be in pain?  So instead, I would drop down and let them beat me up.  Most superheroes taught you that you needed superpowers or gadgets to be able to defend yourself.  So the idea of fighting back for defense did not come to me till I became a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Random Collection Piece #7

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.

Review: Nickelodeon TMNT Toys!

On the evening of July 3rd, I got a message on Facebook from PangGo asking if I've seen the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Toys and how they're being found at Toys R Us.  This news was a bit of a shock for me, as we've been told we won't see them until August.  Though it was too late in the evening to run out to Toys R Us.   So on July 4th I went to Toys R Us.  At this time, I am on a road trip as we're making our way to San Diego for Comic Con International.  So the Toys R Us I went to is in Mesa, AZ.
