Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Collector Cup

Well I finally had a chance to watch the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) movie last night.  I gotta say it was pretty decent and I actually enjoyed it.  The thing is, the build up to the movie was kind of a bummer with all the negative rumours surrounding it such as Michael Bay playing a big role, the TMNT possibly being aliens, and Raphael being a girl.  Thankfully most of those rumours didn’t come to fruition or were probably cancelled.
While the movie isn’t on the same level as an Avengers movie, it’s still pretty good.  To enjoy it you have to be a fan of TMNT, and what they’re all about.  If you cringe at the word cowabunga, than this movie isn’t for you.  However, if you come into it with an open mind and a fanboy attitude then you will love it.  At the very least this movie is a great start for a new beginning of a beloved boyhood franchise.
So the movie is good, however the reason I’m writing this post is because I also upgraded my popcorn and drink combo to a special edition TMNT version, which included a collector cup.  Of course I had to get the version with my favorite turtle, Michelangelo (which matched the TMNT Mikey shirt I wore).  The collector cup is minimalistic in design by only featuring the hand and weapon of each turtle, but what makes this cup nice is the mini-figure that is included at the top of the lid.  The figure is nicely painted and it was made by a company called Snapco.  This is my first collector movie cup, and I now plan to collect more cups in the future.  These cups add to the movie experience, and create great memories.  Movie Collector Cups I plan to get in the future: Star Wars, Avengers 2, Batman v. Superman

Mike Tyson Mysteries

You know there are some people in this world where they could have great success or mess up big time, and you’ll always love them regardless.  Mike Tyson is one of those people.  I loved seeing him box back in the day when he would knock out a dude within a minute.  He did eventually have a lot of downs throughout his life, but I always felt he was a good guy.  But now, Mike has done it again with a new cartoon that brings a big smile to my face.  The cartoon is called Mike Tyson Mysteries, and it has that Scooby Doo look with an Adult Swim sense of humour.  In addition to this show, they’ll also be a toy line similar to Mego dolls.  Mike you’ve done it again and K.O. two great ideas.

José Bautista Bobblehead 2013

Well, I’m glad to say that I finally have a José Bautista bobblehead in my collection.  This is the 2013 limited edition bobblehead that only season and flex pack ticket holders could get.  I was planning on getting flex pack tickets that year (which in my opinion is the best way to purchase tickets), but I just wasn’t sure if I would be able to attend enough games.  Unfortunately I was unable to get a bobblehead, but thankfully a friend of mine gave me a spare she had.
