Expect a new website soon!

Kinda bittersweet, but www.ninjaturtles.com as we knew it is gone.

It's under maintenance as we speak, and I can confirm it was working early this morning.

I'm excited to see what they do with it... great time to be a Turtles fan.

More of a kick in the butt for me to get going on my site even more... There's just so much info!

I'm excited about it, but I think I'm probably more upset. Mirage, how I miss it already (don't get me wrong, I can't wait to see what's coming).

Wow...well, to be expected I suppose. I'm pretty confident they will do something pretty cool with it - let's hope! It would be awesome for them to have lots of info on past incarnations of the TMNT as well as plenty of media/links, etc, so new fans are able to get to know everything the TMNT are and have been (and not have the site be 100% devoted to being a current show marketing channel).

The site will likely only be about the Nick cartoon.

I seriously doubt any info on the Mirage comics, old cartoons, or even the IDW comics will be there.

I could see them having a section for the IDW comic... maybe. And possibly a brief overview of TMNT history, but nothing too in-depth.

Its a shame the old site was trashed. I loved how it had summaries for all the comics and cartoon episodes, as well as pictures of all the toys.

Before I actually bought all the comics I used to read the summaries of them on the site just to see what happened in them. It was a great reference when I was younger.

I actually had been visiting the site since 1997. I remember back then they were hyping up the Next Mutation...lol.

I remember those days. When I was 12 or so, I spent like a whole Saturday going through each comic synopsis. I thought they were the sh*t, but had no way of getting them.

I started to buy the comics around 2001/2002 when Volume 4 was starting, so I decided to go backwards.

First I got all the Image series, then Volume 2, then I went back and tried to get all of Volume 1. Additionally I had some Archie issues from my childhood but there was a large chunk I never had.

Luckily back in the early 2000's almost every comic was available to buy on ninjaturtles.com. I actually bought the entire Image series from them, which I am glad I did as they were all sold out sometime after.

I am glad that I have the site's content mostly saved to my hard-drive.

However, it was convenient to still have the old site around to pull up quick references of episode listings and descriptions.

But... it IS time for a new, revamped website. Let's hope Nick creates some nice for the long haul.

That's probably a safe bet. When it comes to business and marketing it's pretty much all about "The Now," without much regard for the past.

They also still sell the hell out of OT related merchandise.....so, why not promote it all?

As a side note, I think it's kinda humorous when people assume they know all about promotion/marketing when they don't necessarily work in that industry.

The site is to promote the new Nick show.

Nick doesn't even own the original series, Lionsgate still holds the rights.

They might own it, but they definitely don't have exclusive distribution rights.
