View Full Version : Hello....another newbie

Hello everyone...my name is Derrick. I have been a Turtle fan for over 11 years (although a for a few I lost interest when they toys began getting stupid :wink: ). I got my first action figure in 1990 when I was seven years old, it was the first edition Raphael which I still have minus the belt and weapons. I had a mondo collection of stuff but sold it off for $$$ when I was
nine (*stupid,stupid,stupid*). Anyhow, I am slowly trying to get back some of my favorite figures and videos. I love the cartoons as well as the movies.

Turtle power!

Welcome raph90! I don't really collect anything in particular....just whatever I can get my grubby little paws on! LOL :lol:

Thanks for the welcome eveyone. :)

Actually...for about two years I lost interest for a while, but never totally disowned them. When I found the first Raphael I got in my collection (I had lost it years before) it rekindled my liking for the toys a little. A few years later I just decided to get into them again. Although I'm not as rabid a collector as I used to be ;)

The Turtles will probably always be my favorite guys in the world!

Welcome, Raphael90. It is always good to see a new member on the forums.

I don't think my love for the TMNT ever died, but it did take a hiatus for a while. Shortly after the cartoon stopped airing, I walked away from the Ninja Turtles for a while, but it wasn't long before I returned.

Once you're a Ninja Turtles fan, you never go back. :)
