Last weekend, the Crystal Brush Awards were held at Adepticon. I certainly wasn’t in danger of winning them. And I’m probably not in danger of winning the new TMNT: Shadows of the Past Hobby Challenge that IDW Games has launched over on their website....

Well, it seemingly took an eternity, but it is now Saturday. And, as I expected, from the time I clocked out until even now seems to have gone by very quickly. So, by the time I finish this, I guess it’ll be time for Monday’s Terrain corner… But that’s as may be. Today we have...

For those that watched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, you know that their best human friend was the yellow-jumpsuit clad reporter, April O’Neil. She’s gone through quite a few iterations over the years, with her next one coming for the Shadows of the Past board game from IDW. H...

Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It’s Saturday! So, let’s not wait around. Let’s get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I’m thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix’s algorithms in ...

… Comics really are weird. So, clones are really no big thing anymore, really. We’ve had Dolly the sheep around for decades now. And comics make heavy use of them all the time. But then you’ve got Shredder Shark. It’s a shark! It’s an octopus! It’s a Shredder! It&#...

Dice Masters isn’t the only game getting a Ninja Turtles expansion soon. HeroClix will be getting their 3rd mutant-themed set when Shredder’s Return comes out. And what would fighting against Shredder be without fighting against Foot Soldiers? Nothing, that’s what. Well, the new set...

The characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world have gone through dozens of iterations since their initial comic release. Sometimes they’ve been a bit more dark and gritty. Other times they’ve been more lighthearted and kid-friendly. So just saying, “Ninja Turtles” ca...

Cowabunga, dudes! I very much remember growing up with the Ninja Turtles cartoon. I remember getting my first of the figures, too. And the games! Like the original one on the NES that was friggin’ impossible! That damn dam level! Gah! Well, WizKids is taking us down nostalgia lane with a new Ni...

While the very first Ninja Turtles comic was meant to be rather dark and gritty, subsequent comic books about the group tended to be a bit more brightly colored. But I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising with Gallagher involved with things. Lord knows plenty of turtles got experimented on in...

Those of us that only know the Ninja Turtles through the cartoon from the 80s might think that the Shredder was the supreme leader of the Foot Clan (and that said clan was made up entirely of robots). Such was very much not the case for the comic series. There were many in charge of […]...

Some of you might remember the shipping strike that happened a year or so ago and how that caused a ripple effect through much of gaming, as company’s had their containers stuck at the docks on ships while it all got sorted out. This year, we’ve got something not exactly the same, but the...

No, WizKids isn’t doing a Guns ‘N Roses set for Heroclix… though that’d be friggin’ awesome! Anyway, this preview is from the cartoon show. No, not the one I used to watch as a kid. Those were some of the previous previews. This time around it’s the 2012 animated s...

Show of hands who watched the hell out of the Ninja Turtles cartoon back in the 90s. *raises hand and watches many other hands go up* Yeah, just as I figured. Well, WizKids is bringing more of those characters we loved so much in our youth to your tabletops now. We’ve seen some of the […...

I wanna roooock… steaaaaaady. Steady-rockin’ all night long. Ok, not really the same thing, but maybe I got a song stuck in 1-2 of your heads (if so, mission accomplished). The other day, we got a look at Bebop for the upcoming Heroes in a Half Shell set for HeroClix. And where Bebop goes...

WizKids isn’t satisfied with just one set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix. They’ve been working on a second set, of which they’ve just started showing off previews. To begin, we get a look at one of the Turtles’ regular foes. He’s the gang member-turned-warthog,...

While Shredder might be the first major villain people think of when they think of the Ninja Turtles, Krang is usually just behind. I mean, Krang was a talking brain with pointy teeth running around in a giant robot suit (though many of us, I’m sure, remember his little chicken-legged walker, t...

The Ninja Turtles have gone on a lot of adventures across a lot of different media. They started as a comic book, then there was the first cartoon, then video games, some movies, then more cartoons, and more comics, and just seemingly everything else in-between. They have a lot of allies and villains...

Just because we got that one preview for the upcoming X-Men set doesn’t mean that we’re done seeing figures from the TMNT set for HeroClix. Oh no. There’s still more to be had, the next one of which is the Rat King. I remember having the toy as a kid....

It’s pretty amazing. We keep getting these previews for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set for HeroClix, but all I can think of, whenever I see a new figure, are the old toys I used to have. Even Fugitoid, a character I don’t ever really remember from the old cartoon, but I did...

The previews of the allies that tend to pal around with the Ninja Turtles continues. There really were a whole group of them, when you stop to think about it. One of my personal favorites was the hockey-mask-wearing, baseball-bat swinging, vigilante that is Casey Jones. Of course he’d be gettin...

While it bounces back and forth between Marvel and DC on a very regular basis, it’s important to not forget that HeroClix is open to any IP that WizKids can get (I’m still saddened that the Hello Kitty set apparently never materialized, just because of how funny that would have been). Wel...
