Heart and brain. One thinks too much and the other acts on impulse. They balance each other out and together they can solve any problem and overcome any obstacle.

Or something like that

Raph and Donnie are both cynical about humanity in the 1987 cartoon and often wonder whats the point in helping people when they're not appreciated.

David Wise… can he be considered the “third father” of the TMNT? He was the guy who basically solidified the 1987 series.

I wonder where MM!Leonardo’s crush on MM!April is gonna go. It doesn’t seem reciprocal so… what’s gonna happen with it?

EDIT: Also if it’s almost universally agreed amongst the fandom that the turtles having feelings for/being in a relationship with a human is weird then why is it so prominent in canonical TMNT works?

I don't know who these people are and how they relate to the Ninja Turtles.


Also next time, screenshot these things. People delete their Twitter posts all the time, but not if they're screenshotted. Hide em behind spoilers if you must, but screenshot em. Most of these links don't exist anymore for us to view.

Didn't want to make a thread for it, since I have nothing to contribute on the matter, but someone on the Reddit sub (if by chance not a user here) posted pics of today's dedication of the TMNT manhole cover and historic marker sign in New Hampshire, so just fyi if interested.

Candy canes fit nicely into some 12" figure hands for decoration. Mini candy canes (in wrapper) are a nice size on the ThreeZero Turtles. Just thought you'd like to know. Unless you're ahead of me on wholesome forms of weirdness and already tried this previously.

So if "late November" was when those first sketches happened, then surly by now, so happy creation date 40th birthday, Turtles.

Just me, or is this card just begging to have the masks drawn on? Maybe some weapons added. Wish there was someone I exchange cards with who'd appreciate it.

I actually completely forgot that existed. I guess since I saw Mutant Mayhem recently, I might as well watch the Rise movie too.

It was so good that everyone forgot about it so quickly.

I can't be the only one sometimes mildly annoyed that, simply based some art styles drawing them straight, some people insist that Leo's swords are not actually katana, despite being called katana and intended to be katana... like they demand accuracy for Leo's weapons, but some of the same people will happily continue to believe Raph's sais are bladed weapons.

You mean "canonical" in TMNT works since Laird sold his rights? Because they're apocryphal and TPTB don't care. Which makes me not care about them or their works.

I've seen some artists draw Raph's sais with sharpened edges on all sides. It's idiotic, but it's a thing. And Michael Dooney and Farley are probably the only artists who ever bothered to actually give Leo's katana their proper curvature.

Somehow I doubt Wizard101 is commonly played by this crowd (hey, no judging, it's a cute game lol) so I thought it might be worth posting an Easter egg I came across tonight.

Look who I found!



Friend and I started a zone that's full of dinosaur people (among others) and hard to tell by the posture because it's a zombie, but he is a triceratops.


There's also a Shinobi (also referred to as "Shellnobi") Turtle pet with a pair of sai from an old retired game card, but sadly I don't have it. And Death school Ninja Pigs who are a bit suspiciously green skinned, but that might be a coincidence. Or not.
