Houston Flood Tribute T-Shirt “Hell Or High Water” by Grits Co.

Houston Flood Tribute T-Shirt “Hell Or High Water” by Grits Co.


This past weekend Houston experienced some truly devastating floods. The Blot’s own neighborhood was one of the hardest hit areas in the city. All of the homes around me seem to have taken in huge amounts of flood water, with many families losing everything. Thankfully, my family and I emerged from this disaster unscathed, and honestly I still don’t know how that happened. We were truly one of the lucky ones. Dedicated to all of those affected by these recent floods throughout the state of Texas, fellow Houstonian Levi of Grits Co. has decided to reprint his indie clothing brand’s previously sold out t-shirt “By Hell Or High Water”.

As Levi explained, “We didn't get Hell but we definitely got the High Water. We are sending our prayers out to all that were effected by the storms that hit Texas and the nation.” A portion of the proceeds of each “Hell Or High Water” t-shirt sold will go to the Red Cross of Houston. This heather gray t-shirt featuring Grits Co.’s mascot Roscrow is currently available for pre-order, in sizes S-XXL, at the Grits online store for $32. This design’s pre-order will end June 14th and orders will begin shipping no later than June 19th.

Breaking Bad x Johnny Cupcakes “Breaking Glass” T-Shirt


It’s true what they say, iconic television shows live on forever! Which is why almost two years after the series finale aired, fans are still going crazy for Breaking Bad inspired toys and clothing. Just look at Johnny Cupcakes’ newest surprise limited edition release, the “Breaking Glass” t-shirt. Inspired by the hit AMC television show, “Breaking Glass” sold out in just minutes after its release. It doesn’t hurt that the design is just plain awesome! Printed on a bright “Hazmat Suit” yellow t-shirt, “Breaking Glass” features some freshly cracked “Blue Sky” crystals of candy glass in the shape of Johnny Cupcakes’ iconic crossbones logo.

Toy Review: Batman & The Joker Labbit Vinyl Figures by Kidrobot x DC Comics

Entertainment Earth Sponsored Toy Review DC Comics x Kidrobot Labbit 7” Vinyl Figures - Batman and The Joker

Although The Blot has been covering and collecting Kidrobot for over 8 years now, I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never owned or reviewed one of Frank Kozik’s adorable Labbits. That all changes today thanks to our good friends at Entertainment Earth who have generously provided these awesome Batman and The Joker DC Comics 7” Labbit vinyl figures to review!!! Please check out the pictures and review below and let me know what you think!

Entertainment Earth Sponsored Toy Review DC Comics x Kidrobot Labbit 7” Vinyl Figures - Batman and The Joker

To be completely honest with you, I went into this review with very low expectations. While I’m normally a sucker for any designer art toy that features DC Comics characters, there were two things going against these Labbits: 1) I wasn’t overly impressed with Kidrobot’s Marvel Comics line and 2) The past few years KR’s overall QC has been really bad. That being said, I was seriously blown away by these figures from the moment I opened their boxes!

Entertainment Earth Sponsored Toy Review DC Comics x Kidrobot Labbit 7” Vinyl Figures - Batman and The Joker

The one thing Kidrobot has always done well was packaging artwork and these two full colored boxes rock. I especially love how much of The Joker’s personality they put into the box art of both figures. Plus both boxes feature spray paint graffiti style graphics, which tie in perfectly with Kidrobot’s long history of street art themed art toys. The boxes do a great job appealing to fans of both DC Comics and Kidrobot. This is how you meld the world of designer art toys and comic books!

Entertainment Earth Sponsored Toy Review DC Comics x Kidrobot Labbit 7” Vinyl Figures - Batman and The Joker

While the packaging is cool, it’s the figures we all really care about right? Let me just say, the Batman Labbit is fantastic! The figure’s paint application is seriously perfect, without a smidge or misplaced line anyway. Both of these DC Comics Labbits are some of the best painted figures I’ve seen from Kidrobot in forever. They went all out on Batman’s super detailed face, and personally I’m glad Kidrobot mad sure to includ Batman’s signature utility belt and a number of his bat-themed tools (including the Batagrang). What really surprised me is that the Batman Labbit came with a removable fabric cape! From the pictures I’d see I always assumed the cape was painted on. But here you get a really nice cape that attaches under the figure’s chin via Velcro.

Entertainment Earth Sponsored Toy Review DC Comics x Kidrobot Labbit 7” Vinyl Figures - Batman and The Joker

Fans of The Joker will also love this retro styled Labbit! The Joker Labbit sports his traditional purple pinstripe suit and even has a bow on its back (just like DC’s old school Super Powers designs). And of course it’s not the Joker without his signature green hair. Surprisingly, The Joker’s overall paint details aren’t as complicated as Batman’s, but man is the Joker’s face sooo killer! Just look at that menacing grin and deep black eyes! Both 7” long figures also include a character specific accessory, a Joker playing card for Batman and a squirting flower for The Joker.

Entertainment Earth Sponsored Toy Review DC Comics x Kidrobot Labbit 7” Vinyl Figures - Batman and The Joker

Whether you’re a longtime fan of Batman or a die-hard Labbit collector, these DC Comics x Kidrobot Batman and The Joker 7” Labbits are not to be missed! Both mid-sized figures turned out perfect and you won’t be disappointed spending your hard earned money on these figures with their exceptional paint detailing. They will definitely make a great addition to any collector’s toy collection!

Tomorrowland Screen Print by Kevin Tong

Tomorrowland Standard Edition Screen Print by Kevin Tong

In celebration of Brad Bird’s new epic adventure Tomorrowland from Disney (which opens everywhere today), Mondo will be releasing this beautiful new movie poster for the film by one of The Blot’s favorite artists, Kevin Tong! I can never get over all the amazing details Tong includes in his designs, and this print is no exception! I will say I think I would like this screen print even more if I’d already seen the film. It seems like there might be a ton of Easter eggs throughout the poster that pay homage to actual scenes from the film.

Tomorrowland Variant Screen Print by Kevin Tong

Tomorrowland by Kevin Tong is a 36”x24” hand numbered screen print. The Standard Edition is limited to 375 pieces and will retail for $50, while the Variant is limited to 175 pieces and will retail for $75. Both versions go on sale today, Friday, May 22nd, at the Mondo online store.

The series is based on the many influences MAD grew up with, including comic books, anime, toys and cartoons. It’s basically a who’s who of MAD’s favorite heroes and villains from movies, television and comic books.

This awesome series will be sold in weekly batches of 4-6 different designs, with each limited edition print sold separately for $20 each.

First Look: Kidrobot’s The 13 Dunny Series by Brandt Peters (& Kathie Olivas)

First Look: Kidrobot’s The 13 Dunny Series by Brandt Peters (& Kathie Olivas)

Thanks to our friends over at Circus Posterus we now have our very first look at Kidrobot’s newest Dunny artist series, The 13!!! Designed by contemporary toy artist Brandt Peters (with feminine frights designed by his wife Kathie Olivas), “The 13” features thirteen evil Dunny souls providing a history lesson in the macabre based on classic All Hallows’ Eve tropes and vintage horror exploitation cinema icons. The Blot is a huge fan of Brandt and Kathie’s art, and I couldn’t be more excited about this release. Finally a Dunny Series that puts the artist in designer art toy again!

Legend has it that a shady eccentric by the name of Lord Strange opened up the 13th dimension one blood moon, and in so doing filled his demented 13 floor mansion, Infernal Manor, with beasts, creatures and monstrosities of every type. Lord Strange was never seen again…his lair abandoned and sealed from the public since that horrific evening. None brave enough to venture into Infernal Manor has ever returned to tell their tale. Do you dare seek The 13? 

Each figure in “The 13” Dunny Series will stand 3” tall and be sold blind box style. This awesome Artist Series features 13, including two mystery chases, and is expected to hit store shelves in Fall 2015. I can’t wait to find out the ratios on this one! Even better still, if you pre-order a complete case of 20 blind boxes directly from Brandt through the Circus Posterus online store ($225) you will receive a small 5”×7” original sketch by Brandt Peters!

“The Record Store” The Beatles Screen Print by Dave Perillo

“The Record Store” The Beatles Standard Edition Screen Print by Dave Perillo

Tomorrow Dark Hall Mansion continues its acclaimed officially licensed The Beatles Print Series with “The Record Store” by artist Dave Perillo! This image features a very special moment at everyone’s “neighborhood” record store. It is a quietly meditative piece that catches the Beatles pausing before a record store window, a reflection on all they have accomplished and all that's yet to come. As Dark Hall Mansion explains, “it's as much a meditation on artistry and artistic achievement as it is on fame and identity.” The print is a special one, as it required a number of additional approvals just so Dave could include actual Beatles record covers, tour posters, and television performance imagery.

“The Record Store” The Beatles Metallic Variant Screen Print by Dave Perillo

“The Record Store” by Dave Perillo is a 20”x28” hand numbered 6 color The Beatles screen print. The Standard Edition is limited to 280 pieces and will retail for $65, while the Metallic Variant is limited to just 50 pieces and will retail for $100. DHM is also producing 10 Foil Variants of each version, which will retail for $150.
