Charity Auction and Fundraising for Stan and Sharon Sakai



Most TMNT fans are familiar with Usagi Yojimbo, the rabbit samurai character who has guest starred in a handful of cartoons and comics, and had a few action figures from Playmates. Usagi has thrived in his own dedicated comic for just as long as the TMNT, fueled by the talent and creativity of Stan Sakai.

Stan’s wife, Sharon, has battled a debilitating illness for some time. After an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is now back home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicines that cost more than their insurance covers. CAPS, the Cartoon Art Professional Society, has decided to provide whatever assistance possible, starting with an ongoing auction of original art. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Stan & Sharon to help pay their ongoing medical expenses.

If you would like to contribute art for the auction, download, print, and follow the instructions found here. Information on the auction will be posted when it's available. If you would like to make a cash donation, please click here and use the PayPal button to do so.

Stan is often called the nicest guy in comics, and rightly so. Sharon has always been an equally bright light next to Stan at conventions, so let's all show our support for them through whatever means we're able to. You can follow Stan's updates about Sharon's progress through his posts on Facebook.

New TMNT Fan Club Website Now Live




Nickelodeon yesterday launched a new TMNT Fan Club website. However, users of the old Turtles vs. Foot website will recognize it as being more or less the same thing. Fans who sign up have the opportunity to enter contests to win prizes by sharing TMNT posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Currently, fans can enter to win Bebop and Rocksteady production action figures, a signed Nickelodeon season 2 script, and an Xbox 360.

TMNT Named as 2013 National Toy Hall of Fame Finalist



The National Toy Hall of Fame has announced the 12 finalists, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to be inducted into its class of 2013.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book was originally self-published by two struggling artists to satirize comic book heroes and action figures in the early 1980s. However the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles found themselves transformed into comic book and play icons, transmedia pioneers, and an enduring popular cultural sensation known as “Turtlemania”—generating toys, television shows, movies, video games, and merchandise over the past 25 years.
The winners are being chosen in part through an online poll. Winners will be announced Thursday, November 7, 2013.

The other finalists are Bubbles, Chess, Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, Little Green Army Men, Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf Toys, Pac-Man, Rubber Duck, and Scooter.

TMNT Season 2 to Begin October 12



Nickelodeon has announced that season 2 of it's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series will begin Saturday, October 12, at 11am ET (10am CT).
In the first episode, "The Mutation Situation," the Turtles find out that alien Kraang has dropped mutagen canisters all over New York. Throughout Season 2, the heroes will have to recover those canisters before more mutants are created. Meanwhile, Kraang and Shredder have joined forces to stop the Turtles.



Here's a sneak peek clip:


TMNT: Out of the Shadows Patch Released for Steam Players




A patch has been released for the Steam version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. After its debut last month, players complained of various bugs that occurred during game play. This patch is hopefully a fix for most of those bugs. The Out of the Shadows team notes, "This is a fairly large update, so make sure to give it time to fully download. You can track the progress within Steam by navigating to Library/Downloads."

The PS3 version of the game, originally scheduled for September 24, has been delayed until an undetermined date, presumably to address the same problems players faced with the Steam and Xbox versions of the game.
