Earlier this week, DC Direct finally announced the release of its fourth (and probably last) wave of Blammoids! mini figures. Blammoids! Series 4 includes The Flash, Hawkman, the Martian Manhunter, Brainiac, Zoom and Etrigan the Demon.
While The Blot had high hopes for this line of cute designer vinyl figures, from everything I’ve read it doesn’t appear that the Blammoids! toy line is selling all that well. For some reason, I think collectors have spurned the idea of these abstract chunky 3 inch figures of their favorite super heroes and villains. I got to see Series 1 a few weeks ago at my local comic book shop, and they honestly did look better in person. But with that being said, I still didn’t buy any.
Each Blammoids! Series 4 PVC mini figure features three points of articulation and comes packaged on a blister card. Blammoids! Series 4 is scheduled to go on sale on December 1, 2010.

It’s springtime, and that means it’s the beginning of baseball season! To commemorate the start of the 2010 baseball season, Johnny Cupcakes has released three brand new baseball themed t-shirts. The Blot loves this mash-up of Johnny’s Cupcake and Crossbones logo with America’s favorite pastime, and I hope to be seeing many of you sporting these fun, patriotic tees during the dog days of summer. And really, what signifies summer time more than cupcakes and baseball!?!
These sports themed t-shirts are available right now at JohnnyCupcakes.com. The Baseball Crossbones t-shirt in both red and blue, as well as the JC Baseball Team t-shirt, can be purchased from the Johnny Cupcakes online store for $35.99. All three Johnny Cupcakes 2010 baseball t-shirts come in both guys and girls style tees in sizes S–3XL.
