The Johnny Cupcakes Athletic Collection - Reversible Jersey, Duffle Bag, Water Bottle & Headband


If you know anything about Johnny Cupcakes then you’re probably aware of their love of the great American pastime…dodgeball! In honor of JC’s favorite intramural sport they’ve put together a collection of athletic items for anybody that isn’t afraid to get a little sweaty! The Johnny Cupcakes Athletic Collection includes a fun Reversible Jersey that features a black on grey design on one side and a grey design on black on the other. The grey side features a tiger cupcake mascot, while the reverse has the classic Johnny Cupcakes Crossbones logo!

Last week MAD, one of The Blot’s favorite artists, launched his very own clothing brand entitled appropriately enough the Madness Brand! For its first collection, Madness Brand has released some awesome black and white t-shirt designs featuring MAD’s signature handstyle lettering, his classic Big Money logo and a skull very reminiscent of his popular original character the Modern Hero.

Madness Brand by MAD - Madness Sticker Pack, Big Money Bandana & Button Packs

For its inaugural release, the Madness Brand has also produced a very cool Big Money black bandana, a sticker pack featuring many of its new t-shirt designs and two different black and white button packs also featuring different elements from its first four t-shirts. This first Madness collection really has a little something for everyone!

All of the Madness gear seen here can be purchased now at the Madness Brand online store. Each t¬-shirt is available in sizes S-XL and retails for $25, while the sticker and button packs retail for $6 each.

The Blot’s good friends at Deli Fresh Threads recently dropped two awesome new sandwich inspired t-shirts! “All Star,” the first new design, pays homage to Converse’s signature shoe the Chuck Taylor All Star. The All Star logo is a classic, and it’s true the sandwich really is the all star of any good lunchbox. The second design is a little something for all the sandwich eating kids out there! “Sandwich Parade” features a marching sandwich on the way to your stomach brought to life by the talented Lain Lee III Design. So cute, right!?!

First Look: Kidrobot SDCC 2013 Exclusives Teaser Images!

Kidrobot San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusives Teaser Image

Last week Kidrobot posted a teaser image of their San Diego Comic-Con 2013 exclusives! They look pretty awesome, however I can’t tell how many of these are true “exclusives” rather than wide releases making their debut at SDCC. More than likely many of these figures will be released in Comic-Con Exclusive colorways and the figures will see a wider release later in a second colorway.

San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusive Zombie Bart The Simpsons Vinyl Figure & Zoidberg Futurama Vinyl Figure by Kidrobot

For sure Kidrobot will be releasing a 6” Zombie Bart The Simpsons vinyl figure, a 6” Zoiberg Futurama vinyl figure, a 7” Wolverine Marvel Comics Labbit, a 7” Venom Marvel Comics Labbit and two other figures (an 8” Dunny and another 10” Labbit). The pictures seen here are of the wide release colorways of these figures, so expect some possible variations of these figures released at San Diego Comic-Con 2013. More details as they become available!!!

Con Report: Comicpalooza 2013

Comicpalooza Texas' International Comic-Con Logo

While I wasn’t able to spend as much time at Comicpalooza 2013, Houston’s preeminent comic-con, as I normally would due over Memorial Day Weekend to the birth of my new twin boys, I actually was able to go for more time than I expected with three week old babies at home. It’s amazing how much Comicpalooza has grown over the past four years since The Blot started attending. You would not believe how huge this show is now! It took on special significance to The Blot with the addition of a designer toy element to the show.

The Sucklord, Nathan Hamill & Scott Tolleson will be at Comicpalooza 2013 in Houston, Texas May 24-26

This year Comicpalooza brought in The Sucklord, Scott Tolleson and Nathan Hamill to Houston and I hope it was a great convention for all three artists. Personally I thought it was amazing for the city as it introduced designer toys to a broader Texas audience. All three tables were loaded with killer toys, including an exclusive Occupy Cybertron bootleg resin figure by The Sucklord, an exclusive Deadbeet by Scott and an exclusive Curiosity by Nathan. Anything we can do to raise the profile of our little niche corner of the art world is great, and The Blot loved meeting so many fellow toy collectors from around the area. Plus I finally scored one of Sucklord's bootleg resin Dumnys!

Comicpalooza  2013 Exclusive Occupy Cybertron Bootleg Resin Figure & Dumny Bootleg Resin Dunny by The Sucklord

This was a huge year for celebrity autograph seekers as well, as Comicpalooza brought in some serious heavyweights! If you’re a fan of Star Trek then you can’t ask for more than two Starfleet captains, Patrick Stewart (Picard of The Next Generation) and Avery Brooks (Sisko of Deep Space Nine), along with DS9 stars Armin Shimerman and Rene Auberjonois! They also hosted fan favorites Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, the cast of Lost Girl and more Power Rangers than you can throw a stick at. Comicpalooza also teamed up with Galacticon, the world’s largest Battlestar Galactica convention, to host almost every star of both the original and rebooted BSG series. It was seriously geek heaven!

Comicpalooza 2013 Press Pass Designed by Sean “Cheeks” Galloway

But what really got The Blot excited about Comicpalooza 2013 were the comic book artists in attendance. Two of my all time favorite artists were brought in this year, the legendary George Perez and David Mack. I’ve been lucky enough to meet them at a few conventions over the years, but I never miss an opportunity to chat with these two amazing talents. Both are so gracious with their time and sharing insight into their creative processes. I was also really excited to meet Cheeks Galloway, an artist I’ve followed online for years but never expected to meet at a show. I was shocked to learn he’d created 10 different badge designs for the show, which were all epic!

All in all it was a fantastic Comicpalooza 2013! The show still has some growing pains to work through, but you can tell the team behind it has a strong game plan to continue the show’s success. So many of the negatives other conventions, including lack of space, have already been eliminated. If anything there’s too much space, but I think that’s probably a good problem to have as the show continues to grow. Every year the guest list gets longer with bigger and bigger names across a variety of genres. Here’s hoping this show turns into Texas’ largest and most successful comic-con (if it isn’t already!). Hope to see you all in Houston next year for Comicpalooza 2014!

SDCC 13 Exclusive “Glitter N’ Gold” Jem Doll by Hasbro

San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusive “Glitter N’ Gold” Jem Doll by Hasbro

It’s amazing how retro cool everything from the ‘80s is. From My Little Pony to Transformers and G.I. Joe, the 1980s are back! Even B List franchises are getting a little love, like Jem and the Holograms. While The Blot may be a boy, even I dug this truly outrageous ‘80s cartoon about a crime fighting rock band. This summer Jem returns to San Diego Comic-Con with this exclusive “Glitter N’ Gold” Jem doll.

San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusive “Glitter N’ Gold” Jem Doll Packaging by Hasbro

After Jem made a triumphant return to pop culture last summer at SDCC with a high-end collectible figure from Hasbro and Integrity Toys (which sold out instantly of course), Hasbro’s doing it again with this “Glitter N’ Gold” Jem doll. This edition of the Jem doll pays homage to her original look from the television series, and features a more realistic sculpt and accessories than last summer’s release.

The San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusive “Glitter N’ Gold” Jem doll can be purchased at HasbroToyShop.com’s SDCC booth #3329 for $140. Any remaining stock will be made available online at Hasbro’s online store after Comic-Con.
