Splinter in my Mind's Eye


















We visited the set of the first movie for a week back when it was being filmed in North Carolina. Fantastic experience! Sleep all day...up all night watching the action. One of the store fronts was plastered with Bade Biker,Gizmo, Puma Blues and Hallowieners comic book covers. Can you find them in the movie?

This was news to me, so I took the challenge.

This is the best I can come up with, and this guess is based mostly on the sign, which seems to read "Crazy Comix," than on the actual spotting of said comic book covers.

Also, watching this scene in slow-mo made me take notice of just how much the foot soldier crushes Mike's shell.

Man, I love this movie.

You win!

At least I think you do. I can't remember exactly where they were put up.

But hey, this is as good a place as any!

Rose knows.

As long as you mention the Hallowieners comic, was it actually released? I saw an preview for it waaaaayyy back in 1990 in a TMNT-themed issue of 'Model & Toy Collector' but I've never seen it or been able to find it all these years later.
