Johnny Cupcakes Pop Culture T-Shirts

Johnny Cupcakes The Ramones Inspired T-Shirt “Lets Bake”

Last weekend Johnny Cupcakes released a new batch of t-shirts that had The Blot written all over them! All three designs were influenced heavily by pop culture, two are based on classic movies and one pays tribute to the greatest punk rock band of all time. Can you guess what they are!?!

Johnny Cupcakes The Wizard of Oz Inspired T-Shirt “Bakers of Oz”

I keep going back and forth on which of these designs I like the most, but I starting to think it’s The Wizard of Oz inspired “Bakers of Oz” tee. I just love the simple portrait of a winged monkey and its striking use of color. The Karate Kid inspired “Crane Kick” is also pretty solid, with the JC crew replacing Daniel-san with a portly baker. And then there’s “Lets Bake,” which is based on The Ramones’ log (which in turn is based on the seal of the President of the United States). I have to imagine this is definitely going to be the most popular of the three designs.

Johnny Cupcakes The Karate Kid Inspired T-Shirt “Crane Kick”

All three of these Johnny Cupcakes Pop Culture inspired t-shirts are currently on sale at the Johnny Cupcakes online store for $35.99. The shirts are available in both men's and women’s styles, sizes S-3XL.

Copter Boy Custom Munny by Huck Gee

Copter Boy Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Huck Gee just unveiled Copter Boy, his newest custom Munny, and it is seriously freaking awesome! It also looks like the start of a brand new world more fascinating than the last. What kind of wonderful characters will we meet and adventures will we go on during our trip through Huck’s Three Wars? Only time will tell!

Copter Boy Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Long before there was the now legendary Hotaru Copter Squad there was simply "Copter Boy" who, with his sister's help, introduced a revolutionary and last minute innovation that turned out to be pivotal in the battle for Mount Shirokuri. The siblings, strapped into their magical, flying contraptions, rained fire down on the enemy, spreading fear and breaking ranks wherever they flew. The tale of Whiskers the Wizard's bumbling stablehands and their preposterous flying experiments turning the tide of that battle is an unbelievable yet jovial chapter in the history of The Three Wars.

Copter Boy Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Each Copter Boy custom Munny comes signed and numbered by the artist, includes all of the accessories show here, and will be packaged in a padded, hand assembled and laser etched wooden box. 10 Copter Boys were created in all, with each figure retailing for $875. To reserve one of these hand painted, hand crafted vinyl figures email sales@huckgee.com immediately, because once these Copter Boys fly out of Huck’s studios they’ll never been seen again!

This is definitely a print I could see hanging in my house one day.

Iron Man The Avengers Screen Print by Kevin Tong

Mondo - Iron Man The Avengers Standard Edition Screen Print by Kevin Tong

The fifth print in Mondo’s The Avengers Screen Print Series features goes on sale today and features the film’s star, Iron Man. The Blot’s never been a huge Iron Man fan, but this print by Kevin Tong is freaking amazing! I pretty much love everything about it. Mondo has done a killer job matching up each Marvel super hero with an artist whose style matches their look.

Lovebirds Vinyl Figures by Kronk

Kidrobot - Teal, Black, Orange & Purple Edition Lovebirds Vinyl Figures by Kronk

I know a lot of diehard Kronk fans who have been eagerly awaiting today’s release from Kidrobot. It is my understanding that the South African artist gave away the ultra limited edition white colorway of these Lovebirds as party favors at his wedding, and now Kidrobot is making the cute little figures available to the rest of us!

Kidrobot - Orange & Purple Colorway Lovebirds Vinyl Figures by Kronk

The Lovebirds by Kronk go on sale today in four alluring color editions: Teal, Black, Orange and Purple. Each 4 inch figure stands on its tail with its feet in the air, ready to connect with (or push away) any potential partners. Stellar on their own but perfectly complete when mated, the Lovebirds are both half and whole. Like yin and yang, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly…you will enjoy just one, and fall in love with two.

Kidrobot - Teal, Black & Purple Edition Lovebirds Vinyl Figures and Packaging by Kronk

These affectionate vinyl animals come packaged individually in an artist designed box and retail for $19.95 each. Pick one up starting today, Thursday, April 26th, at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com and select retailers worldwide.

Support the Tenacious Toys x Scott Tolleson Noir Uncle Argh Qee Kickstarter Project – Only 5 Days Left!

Tenacious Toys Exclusive Noir Edition Uncle Argh Mini Qee by Scott Tolleson

You probably remember The Blot’s post last month on the exciting new Kickstarter project from Tenacious Toys and Scott Tolleson. The two had teamed up to produce a limited edition second colorway of Scott’s Uncle Argh Mini Qee. Well there’s less than 5 days left and the Kickstarter project is 96% funded. But it still needs your help to reach the finish line! Tenacious Toys is less than $250 away from starting production on its exclusive monochromatic Noir Edition colorway but it still needs a few more backers to bring this cute little figure to the toy craving masses. So let’s help them get there!

Head over to the Tenacious Toys Exclusive Noir Edition Uncle Argh Mini Qee by Scott Tolleson Kickstarter page to find out more about this great project. There are some really fantastic rewards for backing this project, including stickers, sketches, papertoys, t-shirts, paintings, and of course the Uncle Argh Noir figure itself. There will only be 500 of these figures produced, and for just $30 (shipping included) you can reserve one for your collection through Kickstarter today! But remember, the Noir Uncle Argh project ends May 1st at 9pm EST, so be sure to head over to Kickstarter this week to get your last minute pledges in.  And don't say The Blot didn't warn you!

The Incredible Hulk The Avengers Screen Print by Ken Taylor

Mondo - Hulk The Avengers Screen Print by Ken Taylor

The fourth print in Mondo’s The Avengers Screen Print Series features goes on sale today and features the green behemoth, the Incredible Hulk! This is a beautiful poster by Ken Taylor, and I love his version of the Hulk. I just wish Mark Ruffalo wasn’t the focal point of the screen print. Ruffalo is the only member of the Avengers not to appear in any of Marvel’s official tie-in films, and because of that no one really knows what to expect from his version of the character. It’s hard for me to get into a print of Bruce Banner when I don’t even know if I’ll like this third take on the character in the past ten years. Hopefully Whedon knows what he’s doing! Then again, I doubt Banner gets all that much screen time with so many great heroes in this film.

There will be seven posters produced in all for Mondo’s The Avengers screen print series, one for each member of the team and one for the movie itself. Hulk by Ken Taylor is a 24”x36” hand numbered screen print with a limited edition run size of 320 pieces. The print will retail for $45 and go on sale at a random time on today, Thursday, April 26th, at the Mondo online store.

Captain America The Avengers Screen Print by Phantom City Creative

Mondo - Captain America The Avengers Screen Print by Phantom City Creative

The third print in Mondo’s The Avengers Screen Print Series features goes on sale today and features the first avenger, Captain America. While I love Cap, The Blot’s really not feeling this screen print by Phantom City Creative. I think it’s the composition. While the shield looks awesome, the way the poster cuts off the top of Captain America’s head is really distracting. I almost wish they had just focused primarily on the shield itself and ditched Steve Rogers all together.

There will be seven posters produced in all for Mondo’s The Avengers screen print series, one for each member of the team and one for the movie itself. Captain America by Phantom City Creative is a 24”x36” hand numbered screen print with a limited edition run size of 340 pieces. The print will retail for $45 and go on sale at a random time on today, Thursday, April 26th, at the Mondo online store.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster - D.J. Cotrona as Flint

G.I. Joe Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - D.J. Cotrona as Flint

Last Friday when the internet was bombarded by G.I. Joe: Retaliation character movie posters The Blot questioned where was the Flint one sheet!?! D.J. Cotrona (who will be portraying G.I. Joe’s popular warrant officer Flint in the live action film) has been featured prominently in the movie’s trailers so far, but was a no show last week when G.I. Joe 2’s character movie poster set was finally unveiled. Thankfully this was just an oversight and now we’ve got this pretty bland poster of D.J. as Flint. I guess beggars can’t be choosers! Regardless, I’m really looking forward to finding out whether Cotrona’s Flint will be romantically linked to Adrianne Palicki’s Lady Jaye in the film, since these two characters are almost always linked in the various incarnations of G.I. Joe comics and cartoons. 

See the rest of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 here. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to premier in theaters on June 29, 2012.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Screen Print by Graham Erwin

Mondo x Sideshow Collectibles The Nightmare Before Christmas Screen Print by Graham Erwin

Mondo and Sideshow Collectibles continue their popular line of Disney screen prints with this fun The Nightmare Before Christmas screen print by Graham Erwin featuring the Mayor of Halloween Town. Honestly, I’m a little surprised by the timing of this print’s release. While I love NBX, you’d think a print like this would be better released say around the end of October or December. Regardless, Erwin killed this print! I just hope this means we can look forward to more Nightmare Before Xmas character banners in the coming months.

The Nightmare Before Christmas by Graham Erwin is a 12”x36” screen print and, has a limited edition run size of 325 pieces. The print will retail for $50 and go on sale at a random time on today, Wednesday, April 25th, at the Mondo online store.

Image Comics 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso

Image 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso - The Walking Dead

On April Fool’s Day at Emerald City Comiccon, Robert Kirkman and Chris Giarrusso tried to pull a fast on the ECCC fans in attendance for the Skybound/The Walking Dead panel. They announced a new project entitled The Walking Dead for Kids, which would be a panel-by-panel recreation of early Walking Dead issues drawn in Giarrusso’s trademark, kid friendly art style. While the new comic series was a hoax, the image would actually be used as part of a new series of variant covers in honor of Image Comics’ 20th Anniversary.

Image 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso - Youngblood

Image 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso - Spawn

Since then Image has announced that in honor of its 20th anniversary, Giarrusso will recreate twelve classic first issue covers as variants. First to get the “too-cute” treatment is Youngblood #17, which is especially appropriate because Youngblood was the very first Image title. Thanks to iFanboy, we now have pics of the Giarrusso’s first six Image 20th Anniversary variant covers: The Walking Dead, Spawn, The Savage Dragon, Youngblood, Shadowhawk and Morning Glories. My only question is which book will feature the Shadowhawk cover?

Image 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso - The Savage Dragon

Image 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso - Morning Glories

To be honest, The Blot’s a huge fan of Giarrusso’s work. I’ve been reading his Mini Marvels and G-Man Comic Bits strips for years, and my copy of G-Man: Learning to Fly (featuring a sketch by Giarrusso) is my favorite comic purchase from my one and only trip to San Diego Comic-Con back in 2009. Honestly, we need more quality all ages material like Giarrusso’s published by the comic book industry!

Image 20th Anniversary Variant Covers by Ghris Giarrusso - Shadowhawk

The first six Image Comics 20th Anniversary variant covers by Chris Giarrusso will be released sporadically over the next four months (May, June, July and August 2012) and The Blot wants them all! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled to The Blot Says… for more details on these awesome variant covers, and hopefully pictures of the second batch of tribute covers.

As you all know The Blot’s a Muppet fanatic, so of course I’m all over this newest release from Dark Ink Art (formerly Acme Specialty Art). The “Muppet Theatre” screen print by James V. Carroll celebrates the 35th anniversary of the gone but never forgotten original Muppet Show. What really makes this print special is Carroll’s connection to the Muppet franchise. The San Francisco artist is not only a known contributor to the Muppet fan community, but he actually worked with Palisades Toys for many of their classic action figure designs.

Threadless Mr. T T-Shirt “Gentleman T”

Threadless Mr. T T-Shirt “Gentleman T”.jpg

Gentleman T by Sean Anton 

Growing up as a young child in the 80s, I still hold much of the pop culture from that decade close to my heart. And one of my all time personalities from the “Me Decade” is Mr. T! From The A-Team and Rocky III to his Mr. T cartoon series and lunch boxes, The Blot couldn’t get enough of the gold chained, Mohawk sporting actor. I pity the fool who didn’t love Mr. T back then..heck I pity the fool who doesn’t love Mr. T right now! Because of all that 80s nostalgia, how can you not love this Mr. T inspired t-shirt from Threadless featuring Mr. T drinking a spot of tea!?! I can't lie, I got pretty excited as soon as I saw the “Gentleman T” design! 

The Mr. T t-shirt “Gentleman T” comes printed on a silver t-shirt and is currently available for purchase at Threadless.com for $20. The shirt comes in both guys and girls styles, sizes S-2XL.

EE Exclusive Sheldon Batman Variant The Big Bang Theory Bobble Head

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Sheldon Batman Variant The Big Bang Theory Bobble Head by Funko

Last week Funko released a third colorway of its popular Sheldon Big Bang Theory bobble head, and it’s possibly the best one yet! Just check out the new Entertainment Earth Exclusive Batman T-Shirt Variant Sheldon for yourself. The original Sheldon figure sported a Flash t-shirt (seen here) and the second colorway featured Sheldon wearing a Green Lantern tee (seen here). One of my favorite aspects of The Big Bang Theory is all of the DC Comics paraphernalia that shows up in each episode. And more often than, Sheldon can be seen wearing some sort of DC super hero logo t-shirt. It’s become a trademark of his, and now you can buy a Sheldon bobble head featuring each character’s logo! 

The Entertainment Earth Exclusive Batman T-Shirt Variant Sheldon Big Bang Theory Bobble Head stands 6” tall, and comes standing atop a name display base. This limited edition Wacky Wobbler Bobble Heads is not scheduled to ship until July 2012, but you can pre-order one directly from Entertainment Earth here for $13.99.

Over the weekend The Blot got introduced to Matt JOnes’ newest custom 8” Qee for the Heavy Metal Qee Project taking place now at Forbidden Planet in London and it blew me away. Entitled “Waves,” this Custom Knuckles Qee features waves both made of water and the ones you make using your hand. “Waves” is controlled by “Quite New,” who while rising up from the murky depths is seen waiving his hand in a welcoming gesture (while sporting a Lunartik t-shirt naturally).

The Blot was so bummed when I learned this awesome collaboration between Brutherford Industries and Brown Magic Paint Company was already sold out before I even found out about them! That’s what I get for falling way behind on my email. But these metallic colorways of Brutherford Industries’ signature figure, the Ice Scream Man, were just too cool not to blog about. BMP Co. did a fantastic job giving these figures their trademark sparkly magic metallic treatment.

Brutherford Industries x Brown Magic Paint Company “Stainless Steel Strawberry” Metallic Ice Scream Man

Two extremely limited flavors were hand painted by the Brown Magic Paint Co., “Heavy Metal Mint” and “Stainless Steel Strawberry.” Only five of each flavored Ice Scream Man were created, and these bad boy sold out almost instantly upon release. Each figure retailed for $115, came signed and numbered by Brutherford and Brown Magic Paint Company, and was packaged in a pinstriped box customized with hand painted details by BMP Co. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled to Brutherford Industries’ online store for even more exciting Ice Scream Man releases!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Posters

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock

Yesterday the internet was bombarded with exclusive looks at G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s first set of character one sheet movie posters. The Blot’s been wondering for a few weeks now why no posters for the film had been released and then BAM! nine different character posters show up. I guess if you’re finally going to release a set of posters for a big summer blockbuster you’ve gotta go big, and the marketing team behind G.I. Joe: Retaliation definitely went big with this set.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Bruce Willis as General Joe Colton

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Channing Tatum as Duke

Character movie poster sets are often pretty boring, but the team behind G.I. Joe 2 did a great job picking out photos for these one sheets. I have to give them credit, other than a few boring duds (Duke and Joe Colton), these are actually pretty cool looking. I’m especially loving Roadblock, Jinx, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow’s poses in these posters with Roadblock and Jinx’s being the most intriguing. Plus, we get our very first full look at the new Cobra Commander. Boy is this a huge improvement over the character’s look in the first film!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Adrianne Palicki as Layd Jaye

G.I. Joe: Retaliation International Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Adrianne Palicki as Layd Jaye

I’m also glad to see Channing Tatum’s Duke got a poster because based on the film’s trailers there has been heavy speculation that his character is killed off in the film’s opening scene. I’m hoping that’s not the case, but clearly he has not been featured in much of G.I. Joe 2’s marketing to date and after a huge 2011/2012 it’s arguable that Tatum is the film’s 2nd biggest star after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (sorry Bruce Willis). My only question now is, where is Zartan’s poster!?!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Ray Park as Snake Eyes

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 - Byung-Hun Lee as Storm Shadow

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Character Movie Poster Set 1 features Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock, Channing Tatum as Duke, Bruce Willis as General Joe Colton, Byung-Hun Lee as Storm Shadow, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Faran Tahir as Cobra Commander, Elodie Yung as Jinx and D.J. Cotrona as Flint.

Sweet Demon Custom 8 Inch Dunny by OsiRisORion.jpg

This weekend OsiRisORion is unleashing his newest creation at Tenacious ToysCandy Coated Custom Show on Saturday, April 21st, at The London Candy Company in New York City. The Blot’s always been a big fan of OsiRisORion’s custom figures, especially his Demon and Space Junk characters, so of course I’m really digging this brand new 8 inch custom Dunny entitled “Sweet Demon.”

This bad boy includes all of the classic elements that make an OsiRisORion custom great! Just check out those eyes, teeth and amazing paint job! I also love the peppermint the Sweet Demon is sporting in its chest to go along with the candy theme of the show. I’m just bummed I won’t be able to see this crazy looking custom in person, but hopefully those of you living in the NYC area will be able to hit up the show on Saturday!

“Assemble” The Avengers Movie T-Shirt by Lain Lee 3 Design

“Assemble” The Avengers Movie T-Shirt by Lain Lee 3 Design

Although Lain Lee 3’s “Clothe Yourself in Awesome” Kickstarter project didn’t get funded, the San Francisco designer didn’t let that stop him from following his dream of launching his own line of pop culture inspired t-shirts. Lain3 kept grinding and earlier this week he released his “Assemble” design in honor of this summer’s The Avengers. I love his unique take on the movie version of Marvel’s Avengers and how he incorporated his "III" logo on both the front and back of this tee. There’s definitely no better shirt to wear to opening night of The Avengers than “Assemble” by Lain3!

You can pick up Lain Lee 3’s The Avengers tribute t-shirt “Assemble” from at Lain Lee 3 Design’s online store for a limited time for just $25.

Support The Variants Season 3 Kickstarter Project!

The Variants Season 3 Kickstarter Project

The Variants, a web series about life in a comic book shop, is a must watch for comic book fans everywhere. The Blot’s been a huge fan of the series from the beginning, and when I heard the show’s executive producers were starting a Kickstarter project to help a third season I knew I needed to get involved! After two seasons of being an all-volunteer production, the cast and crew of The Variants need your help to move forward with filming of a third season.

The goal for this Kickstarter project is to raise $8,000 to make season three a reality. As Richard Neal, the owner of Zeus Comics, explained on Twitter, by raising these funds they can film all of Season 3 at one time, which will allow them to release the series weekly and add Chris Haley and Curt Franklin of the webcomic Let's Be Friends Again to the cast. Haley and Franklin guest starred in the season finale of Season 2 as potential investors in taking Zeus (the comic book store where The Variants takes place) national.

The Variants Web Series

The Variants Season 3 Kickstarter project is already halfway funded with almost 40 days still to go! By raising the $8,000 through Kickstarter, The Variants can produce six all new episodes. If they are able to raise $10,000, they will produce 8 episodes, and if they make it all the way to $12,000, they’ll produce 10 episodes and additional content for the series. The Blot is a huge proponent of supporting web series and webcomics whose creators give out free content on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, which is why I have already pledged to this exciting project. Hopefully after watching The Variants and finding out more about the great incentives involved with this Kickstarter project, you’ll want to support this fantastic show as well.
