To those comic book readers who missed reading about the meeting of two of the greatest anthropomorphic warriors, a group of agile reptiles and a rabbit (and those issues are hard to find) there’s no need to fret. Coming this summer is a reunion of sorts. After twenty long years, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are hopping into Usagi Yojimbo‘s world in a special one-shot comic by Dark Horse Comics!
Crossing over to other dimensions or realms is nothing new in either franchise properties. When considering a lot of time have passed since the two last interacted, something is bound to change. I’m wondering if the two even really remember each other.
NECA Toys is looking to make collectors’ heads spin with an announcement of their latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) sculpts. Due to make their debut at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), these TMNT figures are modeled after the smash 1989 Konami co-op arcade game. Figures are available in a 4-pack that when opened will recreate the look of the original arcade cabinets. The Turtle pack comes with Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. The Foot Clan pack will contain Shredder and three of his Foot Soldiers, each Foot Soldier is painted a unique colour that reflects their in-game appearance.
Feldman is to appear at Armageddon or at least that is what he’s hinting at anyways. Corey Feldman the actor known to geeks and nerds the world over as Mouth from the Richard Donner directed film The Goonies (1985) and as the voice of Donatello from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) may be signing autographs come Armageddon day. It’s interesting that Feldman may appear at the same convention as Kevin Eastman, one of the creators of TMNT. Feldman had this to say on his twitter:
AUSTRALIA!!! I am thinking of coming 4 a visit 2 do some gigs n sign autos @Armageddonexpo but 1st I need 2 C how many of U would b there? RT!
