-->>,,Ya ..dat ees Girlie Turtles here.. NO NO .. we work out ,den we PLAY HARD..DEN WE RUN FO'  GOVUHNAH OF DAH SEWAHS YA !!
..Mr.B's official TMNT sitehas all the production pix up (as reported last week ..) of the Air Ninjas,Ripped TMNTsTurbo Blasters,Knights, and the Big Brawl characters and a few others on the Toy Production page.. with some tentative release dates -starting here !!

--..also on the Main TMNT from RAKA ::
"The current (November 2004) issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) is on newsstands from now to October 19th. The demo disc included with newsstand copies of the magazine has a VERY short peek at TMNT 2:BN. The disc is not format-specific: it's just a regular DVD, so you don't need a game system to view it. That's the good news.

"The not-so-good news is that the look at TMNT 2 is only a matter of seconds: it's not even the length of the intro to the current series. I did slo-mo it for a more detailed look, and the graphics do look nice and crisp. Interestingly, there was more jumping around and avoiding obstacles than there was fighting action - don't know if that's a plus or a minus, we'll see. Most of the demo showed 4-player action, and it did move fairly smoothly at full speed (but again, this was a demo reel, so that's somewhat to be expected.)

"I myself personally would not recommend buying this issue strictly for the TMNT 2 coverage. There's lots of other good stuff on the disc and in the magazine, don't get me wrong. But I can't see spending six bucks strictly for what little space they give TMNT2. Caveat emptor, as the saying goes. But I will pass it along for the hardcore "gotta see it all" fans.

"The current issue of Play Magazine (October) is first up with a final review of TMNT 2: they gave it a B-.

"Gaming Target has posted a preview of TMNT2, neutral slant. -The link:

..Ho'okie,Groovey Gamers.. with advent of Next month's TMNT 2:Battle Nexus may wanna hit up yir local 'Hollywood Video' ger yir gear dressed up.. !! -Here's Why ::

" console skins are selected by Hollywood Video’s Game Crazy unit for retail sales. the world leader in console skins, and Nuby Technologies, Inc. brings many of their hot new gaming title skins to market. These fresh new skins will be sold at participating Hollywood video’s Game Crazy retail stores.

(PRWEB) September 16, 2004 -- is proud to announce a deal with Nuby Technologies and Hollywood Video, which will bring their skins to the retail mass market. This deal will feature some of the hottest gaming titles ever reproduced on a console skin.

These skins will be displayed in a 6 color 24 pack retail counter top box. Each box will feature such skins as Ninja Gaiden, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Ball Z, Soul Caliber II, TMNT, DOA Beach Volleyball, King of Fighters, and more. They will cover all of the major console systems such as XBOX, PS2, and Gamecube.

What these skins do is really two fold. First and foremost they will completely change the look of any gaming console by covering the console case with a brilliantly displayed high resolution vinyl cut graphic. Secondly, once applied, they will cover the console unit and protect it from scratches and markings that can be caused from regular unit wear and tear. This is a perfect way to customize your case without any harm while also adding a form of protection.

These skins will feature high resolution graphics and original artwork brought to you right from the individual gaming studios art departments. These graphics are developed distinctly for designerskins console skin products and are available only to designerskins distribution and retail customers.

These skins and thousands of others can be found in retail stores across the Nation starting September of 2004 and are also available on our main website this holiday season" can find the -TMNT selection here.. on Designer Skin's d0t com !!

..s'cuse me tho' ..i'm so tounge tied with all this sap i think i need to spew..
(gotta stop lickin' those pine trees..)

**Edit.. guess i'm not that smart .. Turkituck sez ::
After many years and about $40 worth of Furrlough backissues, I finaly have the 3 parts of the Ninjara story line in my possession. If anyone is interested in seeing where Ninjara's life took her after she left the guys, lemme know and I'll see what I can do about scanning the pages. ..

...totally blew me away !! ..that's what i get at updatin' at 4 in the mornin' minus sleep. ..Thanks so much T-tuck..fer keepin' the snapper inline.. i'm thankfully mistaken

(**rushes off to find teh Furrloughs..~~)

-- ..don't spoil yourself.. but get the low-down on TMNT's Season 3 courtesy of TMNT Series producer Lloyd Goldfine and Mr.B on the official TMNT -starting here..!!

-- ::from Mr. B ::
Here's an important message to those of you in the Milwaukee area:

I am writing to you to let you know that effective immediately, WCGV 24, the former FoxBox affiliate in Milwaukee, WI, has discontinued airing all FoxBox programming. As a result, anyone living in Milwaukee or the surrounding areas cannot watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or any FoxBox shows (besides waiting for the CN reruns.)

I am hoping that you might consider making a mention of this on your site, and let Milwaukee TMNT fans that they can at least voice their objections by calling WCGV at (414) 442-7050 and speaking to the programming department. Hopefully, with enough phone calls, they could reconsider.

Thanks for reading,
Jim Patzer


**..after last week's little hack-attack.. the updates here had been kind of put on hold as we've been sorting out the future of Mikey's TMNT news page..
..for now we're back up and running. But due to some new blogger changes.. all this will be changing (for the better) once poor Mikey's new layout and news system is in effect..stay tuned as we bite our fingernails and walk on all the broken shards in Blogger's glasshouse .. and thanks for the quick fix,Mike !!

..big news days..!!

Mr.B's offical TMNT site has news of an upcoming synaps of the new TMNT season 3 ::
"We hope to have have season three synopses online sometime next week! Series producer Lloyd Goldfine is working on short, semi-spoiler-proof synopses that will give you an idea of what's going to happen without giving away all the critical twists and turns. Lloyd and the writing staff want people to be surprised by the events that will occur this season (or at the very least, they don't want you to know exactly what's going to happen in the last episode before the first one has even aired)."

..also major props go to Mr.Berger.. he is reworking the old TMNT Volume 3 from Image ..much better detail of some of the inner artwork as well as more details on the storylines.. -starting here..
..i get alot of questions regarding the short lived third volume of TMNT ..and as the time goes by..this series gets rare. The whole volume has been thrown out of Mirage Studioe's TMNT cannon & intrestingly may play a role as far as referance to upcoming TMNT season 3 eps. The series also gets panned alot for it's daring treatment of the Turtle characters and relativly unliked.
I for one tho' think it was a great,fast paced story line and bold enough to take the Turtles beyond the levels of schizophrenia and back. If you are unfamiliar with Volume 3 and possibly the slightest bit curious.. or just wanting to refamiliarize with one of the most contraversial TMNT storylines ever.. -this is your starting point !!

--..i'm really unliked by Splinter at T-drome.. but alls fair in love and fandome.. and i'm relativly a nice guy so hey ya know f7ckit..

.. so as reported on the forums by Machias Banshee (thanks,lady !!) ..and posted by Splint

Long time no see, Turtle Fans. I've been swamped with the summer, but now I'm back with some big news from the land of the green teens. The long unpublished but long hyped saga for Archie Comics that never saw print will finally see the light of day in 2005. A 96 page graphic novel will be produced that will feature the long abandoned storyline that was reported to originally be planned as a massive 5 Issue Finale. This is great news for fans of the classic Archie series, and we here at the Technodrome hope everything goes smoothly.

Response to my email!!!

Hey Aaron. You'll be happy to hear that Dean Clarrain and Chris Allan will be tackling The Forever War as a stand-alone 96-page (more or less) graphic novel to be published by Mirage sometime in 2005!

Stephen Murphy
Creative Director, Mirage Licensing
Managing Editor, Mirage Publishing

And it seems that Chris Allen has someone who's been sending him some some of the excited fan reactions from this announcement. Judging by this lil comic that our own Machias Banshee has been able to dig up.

You can also see some of the inked pencils for the original Archie covers for these stories that never came out over at his gallery. Thanks to Machias also for the link to his gallery.

--.. i got a note inbox today that i just couldn't reply too right away. In fact i'm gonna just reply to it here. The note baisically seems to put me under fire for rehashing and reporting things people are finding out on other fan sites or can easily find out on the main TMNT site. Why this is such a big deal i don't know. Rarely do i get notes of any kind on my reporting here.. or any in general for that manner. I'm pretty devoted to this site and to the fandom in general ..recently real-life events have been taking much of their toll on me.. and maybe you don't like what i'm doing here. Really why anyone would be bothered by me or this news page in general is beyond me. But you know.. i'm judt trying to share one of my passions with everyone else and keep you up to date the best i can with what i find out what is new in TMNT ..merchandise wise, comic book wise or what-not. This takes alot of effort and hard work to keep up on ..but somehow i'm good at it.

So really if you don't like what the f7ck i'm posting here.. really, go somewhere else ..thanks.

Animated Bliss's
Joshua Lane has a possible run down on the TMNT vids ..volume 13 and beyond..

(-original article here)::

.."There's no official synopsis for the disc yet, and we still don't have one for Vol. 12: Croc Attack (Oct 5) either. But given the remaining season 2 episodes not yet on DVD, I'm going to assume the episode breakdown to be as follows...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 12: Croc Attack
Episode 38 What a Croc!
Episode 39 Return to the Underground
Episode 43 Junklantis (continues the "underground" theme of the two other episodes)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 13: City At War
Episode 40 City at War Part 1
Episode 41 City at War Part 2
Episode 42 City at War Part 3

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 14
Episode 45 Rogue in the House Part 1
Episode 46 Rogue in the House Part 2
Episode 47 April's Artifcat
Episode 48 Return of the Justice Force

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 15: Big Brawl
Episode 49 Big Brawl Part 1
Episode 50 Big Brawl Part 2
Episode 51 Big Brawl Part 3
Episode 52 Big Brawl Part 4

"Episode 44 The Golden Puck" was recently included on Vol. 11: The Ultimate Ninja so that is why it doesn't appear in the list above. Keep in mind, this is all speculation, but I'll wager I'm closer to being right than wrong.

All in all, only two (stand-alone) episodes appear out of order, and Season 2 gets spread out over 7 discs, as opposed to the 8 discs for Season 1. "

Hey gang. First off, I don't think anyone mentioned it, if so, I wasn't paying attention, but there is a sneak peak at a cool look at Splinter via a newer BLAST FROM THE PAST.

If you had to ask me about how excited I am about Dribble For Kids, you would hear me just start gabbing away for hours on end.

While you may not be that far yet, I am, and I'm towards the end of book 1/chapter 1, however you wish to call it, and we're getting into the "Action" stuff. We also got some kickass stuff coming from Kidsplitner regarding a cover for chapter/book 3. Which, again, he does some amazing stuff which makes me try to take it to the next plataeu. Doesn't always work, (aka, better than his. Actually that has yet to occur) but I do work harder at my art work. I began drawing a character who is extremely bad ass, and Kidsplinter designed him on a few rough sketches, (really only ONE sketch) I had drawn.

While it does nothing against the original art, I do think he looks completely cool. Just wait a few more pages or so, and you'll see what I mean!

But nuff bout the future. About today's page! Dun Dun Dun! You gotcha! It's Wil Wheaton (see the cover) under, well you'll find out when you read it! I have the feeling that one of you out there will not like the whole "Yellow" lightsaber thing. Personally, I have seen a few yellow lightsabers, officially endorsed by Lucasarts via their video games (See the Young Dark Jedi in Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight) and it personally blows me away. Imagine a black lightsaber. You darn right it's creepy cool. But being the background around the panels is black so it wouldn't just look the kind of "creepy cool" that I'd want.

I digress. Enjoy the new comic!

And away from D4K, on movie news... I'm gonna try to get something moving. Stay tuned for more details.

-- -This Business Wire story from Dierna (thanks, D. !!)::


In their third heart-stoppin' karate-choppin' season on the FOX BOX, the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES find themselves in way over their shells. First up, when an alien invasion threatens all life on earth, the Turtles find themselves as the last line of defense for the human race. And if they survive this assault from the stars, what will they do when a top-secret U.S. government agency learns of their existence and begins hunting them for their rare, mutated DNA? Plus, the Turtles get separated, each one scattered to a different alternate reality. And if that's not enough serious butt-kickin' ninja action for one season, the Turtles have a final, fateful confrontation with their deadliest enemy, the Shredder. Can the green guys shut down the Shredder once and for all? Only the FOX BOX knows for sure... "
