Fans are excited for the release
dakotagilliland had chimed in saying, “I was thinking the same thing”, while BinchBoii stated, “I feel like it will be Tom in the Funko collection because it’s referencing the original music vid, but that’s not a confirmation that he’s back in the band. Unless they say otherwise when the Funkos release”
meganev seems to be confused as wrote, “Blink releasing Tom merch when he’s out of the band is sort of odd even if it’s tied to the 30th anniversary, but also Tom would 100% allow this likeness to be used if got paid enough. So, in summary, I have no idea what this means.”
Fans have also noted how Travis Barker seemingly teased a Blink-182 themed reunion in an Instagram post. He teased a Box Car Racer reunion in a new post, which was Travis and Tom DeLonge’s band in the early 2000’s.
Blink-182 has released a total of 10 studio albums and debuted with Buddha. The band was constantly releasing new songs up until 2003. After their hit album titled after the name of the band took an eight-year hiatus. They came back in 2011 with their eighth album Neighborhoods. The group has been coming back with new albums every few years or so. But, now fans are hoping that Travis’ Instagram post is hinting at a possible comeback for the classic lineup, or Box Car Racer.
