EXCLUSIVE: First Look at Bebop & Rocksteady's Motorcycles in TMNT Movie Sequel





Last month news and pictures leaked of Bebop and Rocksteady in costume and on set for next year's TMNT movie sequel, which is currently filming in New York City. Now, Ninja Pizza is giving you an exclusive first look at their rides. The tricked out motorcycles appear to be chopper-style low riders. The bike on the left calls out Bebop, leaving the one on the right to be Rocksteady's.

Here's also a video of the bikes being test driven.

Kidney Transplant Fund for Ernie Reyes Jr.



Ernie and Roseangelo, circa 2009.
If you haven't yet heard, with the help of his sister, Ernie Reyes Jr. has launched a GoFundMe campaign in an effort to raise money to help pay for a needed kidney transplant.

Ernie is most known to TMNT fans for his role as Keno the pizza delivery boy in TMNT II: The Secret of the Ooze. He was also Donatello's stunt double in the very first TMNT movie.

In recent months, Ernie has been undergoing dialysis treatment three times a week due to a failed kidney. The target fundraising goal is $75,000, and amazingly supporters have already raised over $50,000 toward that goal. Every little bit helps, so if you have something to spare, even if it's only $5, I encourage you to support Ernie and his family.
