NYC Comic con update ::

"Peter Laird and Dan Berger could not attend the New York Comic Con - but Mirage crew members Michael Dooney, Jim Lawson, Steve Murphy and Eric Tablot will be at the show, as will "Tales of the TMNT" artist Dave White. If you've got tickets, drop by and say "howdy" to 'em."

-Below is the latest press release regarding Ubisoft's TMNT video game - thanks to everyone who sent in the links:

MEDIA ALERT: FEBRUARY 21, 2007 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game developers and publishers, announces that a free eight-minute PC demo for the all new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® (TMNT™) video game is available for download at (**Click here).

This exciting demo provides just a taste of the look and feel of the new TMNT video game. In the demo, players embody Leonardo and can also control Donatello and Michelangelo in a ninja-tag sequence. Players perform acrobatic moves and experience over-the-top ninja action across the rooftops of New York City. Players will also engage in a battle with diverse enemies and see how the family bond and brotherly co-op actions can enhance the game and help combat evil. A tutorial provides instructions and information on how to navigate and complete certain co-op moves in the game.

The all new TMNT video game will be available at retail March 20, 2007 just days prior to the release of the CGI feature-length film in theaters March 23, 2007.

-The new TMNT video game uses the same dark and dangerous environments and adventurous themes featured in the new TMNT CGI film being developed by Imagi Animation Studios and Mirage Licensing. The TMNT movie takes place in a New York City plagued by secretive villains and strange, otherworldly creatures. Faced with these perils, the Turtles will experience their most trying time as heroes and as a family, as Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo lose their focus and struggle to maintain their unity and ninja discipline. In the movie and in the highly immersive video game adventure, it’s up to Leonardo and the faithful father figure Splinter to reunite the band of brothers and save New York City from a monstrous evil that lurks around every corner. Video game players will engage in over-the-top acrobatic navigation, collaborative combat and powerful fighting moves.

Major Promotional Campaign for 'TMNT' Movie
McDonald's, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Toys R Us
February 21, 2007
Warner Bros., 4Kids Entertainment, and Playmates Toys have fashioned a major promotional campaign for the CGI Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie, which opens on March 23rd. McDonald's is offering a major Happy Meal promotion featuring eight different TMNT premiums, which will be doled out one per Happy Meal.

-Anyone who buys $10 or more worth of Playmates TMNT Movie toys at K-Mart will receive four TMNT Movie cards, while 1,000 Wal-Mart stores are giving away a free movie poster with the purchase of a TMNT toy, and Toys R Us is providing customers who buy $20 worth of TMNT toys with a $5 gift card with a TMNT image on it.

-TV-Tokyo will begin airing the 4Kids TMNT cartoon in April. The series will kick off with the first episode from the 2003 season, "Things Change", and continue chronologically from there. Each will be dubbed in Japanese, o' course.

-Billy reports that there's a Wikepedia article stating that the TMNT series will begin airing on some Jetix stations in July. Jetix has stations all over the U.K. and Europe, so it looks like some of those channels that dropped the series previously may begin airing it again.

-Josh "Turtle Kid" Rotunda reported that he found the "Future Shellshock" DVD in Target. He also spotted some Movie figures that were packaged with a demo for the new TMNT video game.

- Sadly the gigantic Movie premier looms at what should be an exciting time of year. tOkKa here is numb and blank. Unread Turtle comics are piling up.. and the entropy and decision making that has made me so outcast and supposedly 'controversial' over the years has reached a new peak.

I am very flat-line to many things i used to cherish ..even TMNT. I am just not caring.. not because i don't want to.. or am not trying. I just can't.. i cannot connect to anything.

i have not been this dark in a very long time. Alienated by fandom,industry and the art fields in general ..i'm afraid things may have come to a broiling point for your snapper friend here. While i thru and thru' love & appreciate all my supporters, fans, friends, and fools that have backed me up thru' thick and thinner. I'm also backed into a very lone and dark corner. I have to say ..darker things are winning and i am loosing,crashing and sinking fast.

The schizo snapper is nearing the very end. Cross yir claws n' fingers.. n' bite your lower beak. Things are not lookin' to bright for my future with Turtles.. tOkKa and *t2z are nearin' a close. We'll see what happens .. - - -
