Blink-182 Reunion Tour Floods Merchandise Market with Limited-Edition T-Shirts and, Um, Toy Bunnies
Some bands reunite without a lot of fanfare and others, well, let's just say they go a little overboard with the marketing. In the case of the quintessential goofy-faced pop-punkers Blink-182 and their current reunion tour, the more limited-edition, tour-only merchandise the better.

Perhaps the coolest idea for merch the recently reformed band have is limited-edition T-shirts for each date on their tour. Under 200 shirts will be printed for each date and sold on a first-come, first-served basis at that night's merch stand.

Once the shirts are gone, that's it. The band are making it quite clear the printing screens and film will be "destroyed and never printed again," according to their page on Pickrset.

The shirts will list the city and date, and feature artwork by rock photographers Jered Martin and Lisa Johnson.

Okay, now for another, slightly less cool merch idea. Blink-182 have also teamed up with collectible artist, Acorn, for a run of limited edition toy bunnies. What these little three-inch cuties have to do with Blink-182 is beyond us, but it's something else to sell at the merch booth, we suppose. Oh, and ultra-limited 15-inch bunnies are also available, but only 250 will be made.

Finally, the band are also working with Pickrset to allow their fans to pick the set list for each of the upcoming shows. Seriously, how about a one-hour set of "Dammit," "Rock Show," "All the Small Things" and "What's My Age Again?" looped repeatedly until the lights go down? And then it's time to buy a big plastic bunny to cuddle in bed when you get home from the show.
