t2z – the tOkKA bootlegz :: “MONI-ONI” & “Say Everything” SKATEBOARDS (( 2016 )) **src

–>> Hey, Snapper-Keepers and Turtle Legions – happy Solar Eclipse Day, hope it ECLIPSES Tokka’s grumpy birthday. Been struggling for weeks to come up with as decent post to start this final quarter year of incredible contention off to a decent start. Especially when the final quarter of LAST year ended in such a hostile thud. And that kinda happened to everyone.

t2z - the tOkKA bootlegz :: MONI-ONI iIn the uncertain cloud of smoke many of us get lost in  — in the “War of Words”, it’s a good time for your old snapper-pal here to take stock of the good things past & present while moving forward. I’m not good with mincing cliches, but if they are true – what can ya do ??

t2z - the tOkKA bootlegz :: MONI-ONI iiThat being stated – 2016 wasn’t ALL bad. ’16 marked a pivotal year in many regards for the world, on a personal level – – i personally was given solace in some regards to the difficult path i’ve chosen to continue on into my 20th year in industry.

SDCC 2016 :: SDCC 2016 :: Gwendoline Yeo with Tokka & "MONI-ONIskateboardSpecifically with Nickelodeon’s TMNT Animation & Vocal Talent team. Two examples included here are part of that constant distribution of my work to industry talent, writers, designers, acting talents, charity causes, ect. This has to an important aspect on perspective i’m trying top take into 2018. If you reading this can get something inspirational out of this or at least something positive internally, all the better.

The deck posted above was made specifically for Gwendoline Yeo. Many know my obsession with TMNT villain lore, and  the latest FOOT CLAN addition to the animated canon is Gwendolin’s Shinigami.  Likely taking slight design influence from the FOOT CLAN MYSTICS, Shini is becoming an important foil and ally to both the Teen Turtle Team and the Foot Clan itself. All good, bad, lethal humorous, lovely, and loyal to her best friend, Karai.

Details in the first and second quarters of last year about her character were rather nil at least design wise with her general look. Tho’ SHINIGAMI is an important  type of spirit in Japanese culture and in religious beliefs. Also being made popular in Anime & Manga franchises like DEATH NOTE, these “gods of death” seem to have a very mysterious and antagonizing name, so i chose 1/2 and 1/2 portrait of a menacing ONI ( the famous Yokai of Japanese lore ) to face off against Raphael, as a menacing substitute to absence of design reference for the beautiful, funny but deadly Shini.

t2z - the tOkKA bootlegz :: SAY EVERYTHING i

t2z - the tOkKA bootlegz :: SAY EVERYTHING iiGwendoline became surprisingly enamored with her deck, and a wonderful friendship was struck. This is what it’s all about. Making people happy and helping as many as i can. I’m going to try, in the coming months to do more ground work for the Hero Initiative as well.

The second deck here was granted to friend & supporter Sean Astin, who is the recipient of many “TOKKA” works, even a couple to honor his legendary actress of a Mom. The great Patty Duke !!

**In the next several hours i shall be offering your chance for a custom, recycled-art skateboard or so & hopefully one of the video cassettes for top-tier backers for Jay Lawrence’s HIGHLY in-demand TMNT ACTION FIGURE ENCYCLOPEDIA Hardcover and Softcover Kickstarter program which has under 6 days to finalize. Watch this link closely !!

Further #TMNT related crowd-funding campaigns in their final days & / or worth your time & monetary flexibility and some incredible rewards  !!::

Another TMNT comic project from the influencial & infamous A. Modeen. His non-canon TMNT, indy-comic stories, particularly this one invites back Mirage Studios talent Jim Lawson, Dan Berger & others – these hypothetical adventures are so close to the creators’ original MIRAGE canon, they become a “Hypothetical – canon” & might as well be CANON. He’s the scoop on his latest project.

From the same team that brought you the Image TMNT conclusion (Vol. 3 #24 & 25) as well as “TMNT: Odyssey” comes a brand new graphic novel. This one takes place after a couple of years after Mirage TMNT Vol. 4, with Donatello leading an excursion to the center of the universe both to save it (an unknown energy is breaking down all life on a cellular level) as well as get answers for himself, his brothers and the others in his group along the way. Answers will be had, secrets revealed and consequences will be suffered.

 

TOKKA may have missed the draw on this one, as when this post publishes, this Passion Project of TMNT & TICK alumn, Dave Garcia may be up & plumb out of juice. But it’s not like Dave to just up and keel over like a dead horse at a dried up waterin’ hole. I’ll keep you guys updated on further developments & potential re listings of this SCI-FI WESTERN Graphic Novel project, a decade in the making !! **Check out Dave’s site for more info & to read S.O.T.W. yourself !!

As usual, thanks for your patience !! I’m workin; best i can with my skeleton GGM crew to keep ya updated on the latest n’ greatest & BEST TMNT related news bits as my poor ol’ tiny dinosaurian typin’ tips can tap out on the keyboard !!

 

Ok – more later. Heysave some of that 7 day old pizza from behind the couch for me and sticka candle in it n’ wish this grizzly ol’ Snapper the Grumpiest of birthdays NEVER !! !!

MondoCon 2015 :: Tokka - "FEAR BEAR" meets MIKE MITCHELL

In case ya been “buzy” ( like Tokka ) and in case you missed it all  — we’ve been slammed with toy news this month between Austin’s MondoCon & NYCC ’15.

The cool kids at Toyark have us covered on the imperative bits from NYC ::

 

Here’s a quick look at some shots we caught of MONDOCon ’15 & the Toy display of Mondo’s new Classic Comic 1/6 scale TURTLES figures.

MondoCon 2015 :: Toy Display; TMNT 1/6 figures - Pre-mutant SPLINTER & UTROMSMondoCon 2015 :: Toy Display; TMNT 1/6 figures - Pre-mutant LEONARDO

The display was slightly different than the past summers SDCC ’15 Mondo booth with the Comic Casey mask and Mouser figures absent, but a new UTROM figure popped up with a T.C.R.I. canister. One would wonder if this is one of Mondo’s exclusive accessories for one of the next Turtle offerings.

**Remember, Mondo’s MICHELANGELO figure goes up for sale pretty soon here !!
