Every year Johnny Cupcakes releases some awesome unofficial tie-ins with the biggest blockbusters of the summer, and 2012 is no different. These parodies/tributes are the sort of pop culture paraphernalia The Blot eats up! From Batman and Wolverine to Harry Potter, The Blot is always anxious each May, June and July to see what Team Johnny Cupcakes has come up with. While the summer movie season of 2012 just started, we already saw the release of this amazing The Avengers Crossbones four pin set!
The minute Johnny teased these pins on Instagram I knew I had to have them. I was really hoping we’d see a t-shirt featuring one, or all four, of these fun Avengers Crossbones designs on a t-shirt, but beggars can’t be choosers! When these dropped two Fridays ago, like an idiot I thought oh I’ll just pick them up later this weekend when I get the chance. Just my luck, these sold out in no time and are already selling on eBay for around $40 a set! That’s quite the markup from their $4.99 retail price. I guess that’s what the largest opening weekend in movie history will do.
But don’t worry about The Blot…thankfully my Johnny Cupcakes guardian angel was looking out for me. A huge thanks goes out a certain someone, you know who you are! More pics when they arrive!
