GROM!



I ran into Jim Lawson down at Mirage Studios today, and he informed me of some recent news in the world of motorcycling. It seems that Honda has created special paint and decal decorations for their new 150cc funbike, called the "Grom", using TMNT images and graphics. (I was actually planning to buy a Grom late last year, but the little bikes have proven to be so popular that dealers quickly sold out of them.))

Here's the link:

Apparently the bikes will be displayed at a Tokyo auto show this month, but I don't know if they will actually be offered for sale. -- PL

  1. Is there any reliable way to reach out to you (Peter) regarding a business idea (licensing, technically)? It is impossible to get in touch with someone at Viacom and Nickelodeon and as a young business just starting out I only have so many resources to pour in to the effort. Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if it is just someone else to talk to! Finding out whether my idea has any chance at getting approval is all I really hope for...

    1. If -- as your comment seems to imply -- you have an idea for licensing that involves the TMNT, I'm not the person to talk to, as I am no longer the owner of the TMNT property. -- PL

    2. Thanks for the response Mr. Laird! It does indeed involve the TMNT trademark, and I'm aware that Viacom/Nickelodeon now owns the rights, but gaining the ability to plant a seed in their ear has been extremely difficult for me. Calls, voicemails, emails all have gone un-responded to. If I could run the idea by you, and get a feel for whether it is something you would support - at least in theory - then maybe when I finally do get their attention I'd have a leg to stand on, rather than a entrepreneur walking in there with less credibility. Plus it would be amazing to have you personally involved in it somehow. My email is available in my profile on here if there is any chance to speak (probably not wise to post it right here)... Thank you again either way! Cheers!

  2. Awesome Bike!

    I had a question, seeing how its the 30th anniversary and everything was wondering if you had any ideas as to going to Fan Expo. Currently I am looking at the Niagara Falls Comic Con where Kevin Eastman is slated to be there for the 30th anniversary and this is in June. Im sure you cant indulge on official as Niagara Comic Con would want to announce it themselves. But do you have any interests to go into comic cons for this year, as if I could meet you and Kevin Eastman, I think I would have completed anything I wanted in my life! That would be truly amazing! Thanks for everything you do!

    1. At this point in time, I have no plans to go to any comic conventions this year. I suspect that won't change. Thanks for the kind words! -- PL
