Sideshow's Donatello Comiquettes Shipping Soon



Sideshow Collectibles has started sending e-mail notices that their Donatello comiquette, both the exclusive edition and the regular edition, is expected to be in their warehouse in approximately 20 days. These e-mails request that you verify your payment information by February 27, as the cards will be charged soon after as the statues start shipping out to their awaiting homes.

If you have an order placed, make sure those credit cards are in order! If you don't have an order placed, it's not too late to get on the wait list. Right now is when cancellations are most likely as people decide whether or not they can actually afford what they pre-ordered several months ago.

Sideshow Michelangelo Comiquette Preview




Hey there, folks! It's been awhile since we visited. Truth is, there hasn't been much in terms of TMNT news to report (specifically, none). Further truth is that this will probably be the case for the foreseeable future, as things are still in flux with the whole Nickelodeon thing. Also, I've been a little lazy, but I do have some TMNT Flashback features planned that I hope to use to supplement all this down time.

However! Tonight we do have the first preview image of Sideshow Collectibles' upcoming Michelangelo comiquette, the third in a series of four. YAY! (If you live under a rock, you may not have figured out that Mike is my favorite.)

Mike will go on sale with the launch of the January 28 Sideshow Collectibles newsletter. Be alert, as that exclusive edition is likely to sell out within an hour or two!

Playmates Michelangelo Statue for $50



Of the four TMNT statues Playmates released several years ago, Michelangelo is probably the easiest and cheapest to find. But it's only a matter of time before the supply runs dry and he becomes as coveted as the Raphael and Donatello statues from the same series.

As part of their Black Friday campaign, Entertainment Earth is currently selling the statue for only $50! That's a steal you don't want to miss out on!

Grab yours here!

Thanks to TMNT fan Spitfire for the heads-up.

Norwayne High School Benefit T-Shirt



     

Ryan Brown's alma mater, Norwayne High School in Creston, Ohio, is selling an exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shirt to benefit their arts programs. The shirts are also available at the middle school in Creston, and two elementary schools, one in Sterling and one in Burbank. Their mascot is the Bobcat, hence the phrase "I love being a Bobcat!" on the shirt.

Unfortunately, the shirt isn't available online or to the general public, but it's still great to see an effort like this to support the creative arts. As an alumni of my school's band program, I know first-hand just how neglected all of the arts programs can become when schools aren't able to budget properly. Good luck to Norwayne High School and all affiliate schools!

Best TMNT Deal on the Internet!!



If you aren't familiar with mega-TMNT fan Tokka's artwork, you should be. Not only is he the biggest TMNT fan around, but his artwork is the most unique and equally fantastic you're gonna find. If you've ever wanted a piece of Tokka's art for your very own, now is the best opportunity ever to get it. He is currently offering his promotional 1-inch buttons to anyone who wants one, completely for free (plus shipping). If you make a donation to Tokka in addition to the shipping cost, he'll send you a piece of art done to your request along with your button!

All of the details are available on the ordering page, but here's the short of it:

  • $1 donations receive a small sketch
  • $5 donations get your choice of b/w or color art
  • $10 donations are standard sized illustrations on Bristol!

Remember to include in your PayPal note what TMNT character you want and/or what you want sketched.

Offer is only good through Halloween, so don't delay! Tokka is going places, and this is your best chance to get a piece from him before prices skyrocket! If you weren't aware, his art has already been published as the pin-up page for Tales of the TMNT Vol. 2 #48!!

Here are some examples of the sketches he's completed so far for his button promotion:

Sideshow Collectibles' Donatello Comiquette Now Available For Preorder!!




It's here! Sideshow Collectibles' first TMNT comiquette statue, Donatello, is now available for pre-order. If you are at all interested in owning this piece pre-order NOW! Why should you pre-order RIGHT NOW, even if you're not sure that you want it and/or you're not sure that you have the money for it? Let us count the ways...

  1. The item isn't due to ship until the 2nd quarter of 2010 at the soonest. That gives you at least 6 months to save the money, since you won't be charged for it until it ships.
  2. It is likely to sell completely out. The exclusive edition was sold out within an hour of being available on the site, so the regular edition isn't likely to stick around for too long either.
  3. Um, seriously, what reason do you have to not pre-order?
Going back to bullet #2, let's discuss the exclusive edition vs. the regular edition. The exclusive edition of any Sideshow product is more limited in production size and also includes an exclusive feature (hense the name) not available with the regular edition. In the case of Donatello here, you get the option of either swapping out his mask to be red like in the comics, or purple like in... well, everything else. If you want purple, you'll have to get an exclusive edition.


"But how can I get purple if it's already sold out?" you ask? Get on the wait list! NOW! Orders get canceled and Sideshow has a fantastic system in place to fill those orders for people who indicate that they want a particular sold out item. This list works! In fact, I don't think I've ever not gotten an item I went on a wait list for. But the sooner you do it, the better your chances.

So that's it! Click any of the pretty pictures to be taken to the corresponding order page.

Preview of Sideshow Collectibles' Donatello Comiquette



With Thursday night's weekly newsletter, Sideshow Collectibles revealed the preview for the upcoming Donatello comiquette statue, the first in what is sure to be a series of at least four statues.

As stated on the graphic, Donatello will go up for pre-order when the newsletter is released on September 17. If you're not already a subscriber to Sideshow's newsletter, you can easily do so on their Web site. And if you're not familiar with Sideshow and/or have never ordered from them before, I definitely recommend that you get your pre-order in ASAP once you can. Better safe than sorry, even if you have to cancel the pre-order for whatever reason before the item ships, which will be at least several months from now.

TMNT on FAIL Blog



This picture has been circulating for over a week, but it hit FAIL Blog today, so I decided I'd post it. You can also Digg it.


Hopefully we can all use this as a lesson for why unnecessary text should be kept off of merchandise (all of the recent T-shirts suffer from this, too).

"Scratch Attack" Jake Black Benefit T-Shirt!



As you should know by now, occasional TMNT writer Jake Black is currently fighting Hodgkins disease (i.e. CANCER). And that means a lot of big ugly medical bills. To help Jake out, his pals at Mirage Studios have been selling some Turtles wares, the proceeds from which go to pay those bills!

The latest of these sales is a T-shirt featuring the cat burglar Scratch facing off against Leonardo, by Fernando Leon Gonzalez and Ryan Brown!! The shirt looks GREAT and everyone needs to go buy one!! That means you!

Hit up NinjaTurtles.com for all the details!

SDCC 2009 Recap: Sideshow Collectibles Announces TMNT Comiquettes



While it was not an unexpected announcement due to Sideshow's participation in the button run that helped you win a ticket to Friday night's Galabunga party, it was an announcement that sort of fell under the radar during the busy Comic-Con weekend. But I managed to keep on top of it for you.

Here's the short announcement that happened during Sideshow Collectibles' panel Saturday evening. I've replaced my shaky handy-cam video with the video since released on Sideshow's Web site. And since the audio at the end is hard to hear, I've provided text balloons.

Eastman & Laird Reunited!!!!



Yes, the headline is true! You might have thought it would take hell freezing over for the two co-creators of the TMNT to get over their apparent irreconcilable differences and collaborate artistically once again. But no, it didn't take that, it took a much more unfortunate reason. You see, my pal and occasional TMNT writer Jake Black has the Big C. Yeah, that's right: Cancer. The good news for Jake is that the specific type of cancer he has is Hodgkins Lymphoma, which has an extremely high cure rate. The bad news is that being extremely treatable doesn't make the treatments any less sucky and it doesn't make medical bills any less expensive. He's already won a battle with his insurance company to get them to cover his treatments, but you know they're not covering anything. And on top of that he's still got a wonderful family to support, which isn't as easy to do when you're sick and can't work as much as you're used to.

That brings us back to the headline. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird have collaborated to create a commemorative art print, the sales of which will go to Jake's medical bills! I'm pretty sure that Kevin and Peter haven't collaborated in this form since the mid-90s and, honestly, the chances of this happening ever again are rare at best. What does that mean? It means you need to get yourself one of these!!

How do you get one? For now, you have to be attending San Diego Comic-Con next week. They will be for sale at the Mirage tables in Artists' Alley for the (extremely reasonable) price of $25. The edition sold at Comic-Con is limited to 100 pieces, but if you miss out or can't make the Con, don't fret too hard, it sounds like a non-Comic-Con edition of the print will eventually become available. Jake reports that there are also plans to put the image on T-shirts and posters.

The current Mirage crew collaborated on a print, also for Jake's benefit, that was first sold at a Free Comic Book Day event back in May. This print will also be available at Comic-Con next week for $20.

SDCC Exclusive Figure: April O'Neil



A "nifty nugget" of SDCC news comes to us tonight from Randy Falk at NECA via Peter Laird:

"I just wanted to send over an image of our SDCC exclusive for this summer. It will be a brand new April O' Neil figure that comes with a Battle Damaged Mouser and a Regular Mouser with a new head featuring an articulated jaw.

This is the first non Turtle figure in the NECA TMNT collection

This version of April will be available at San Diego Comic Con this July.

We are going to try to make arrangements to offer a small amount of figures online for those who can not attend SDCC."


So there ya go - April figure for Comic-Con! (Now where's my Foot Elite, hmm?!!)
