DeLorean Time Machine Schematic

In 1985 Dr. Emmett Brown invented a time machine out of a stock DeLorean DMC-12. Since then, interest in the DeLorean has remained as people try to recreate Doc Brown’s game changing time traveling device. This T-Shirt from 80’s tees provides a glimpse into the inner workings of a Doc Brown tweaked DeLorean. Interested in making your own time machine out of a used DeLorean? This shirt is a great place to start. You can pick up the DeLorean Schematic tee from 80’s tees for an astoundingly cheap $20 (you’ll easily make up that money once you go back to 1998 and invest in a new and little known company known as Google).

And for you non-believers, here are a few more examples of this resurgence of interest in the DeLorean. The Los Angeles based streetwear brand, The Hundreds recently released these DeLorean tees to the small but loyal group of followers. In retrospect, The Hundreds popularity is astounding, might their unparalled popularity be due to them actually already owning a DeLorean time machine and having had gone back in time therefore gaining knowledge that their style of clothing would be in high demand in this day and age? We might never know.

Cassettes by Upper Playground

Back in the day I used to be all about the mixed tape. I’d have so much fun making my own mixes by recording music off the radio. And then the CD burner was invented and I never looked back. The mp3 has pretty much caused the extinction of the mixed tape (for me at least), although I still consider the iTunes playlist the modern day equivalent of the mixed tape, albeit with less soul. How many of you made your own mixed tapes?

Cassettes comes to us courtesy of Upper Playground and was designed by artist Denis Kennedy. The shirt is available now for $24 in a variety of sizes.

MacGyver Is The Father

Do I ever tire of witty MacGyver tees? No, not really. For some reason, MacGyver tees are always awesome (to me at least). And this shirt from SnorgTees is no different. Necessity Is The Mother is yet another excellent MacGyver themed T-Shirt, and guess what, this tee was made out of a toothpick, a rubber band, and some tin foil. Pretty amazing, huh. Pick up this tee from SnorgTees for $18.95 and remember that if you spend $60 or more you score free shipping anywhere in the United States!

Mgyver by TeeZeria

Growing up “MacGyver” (contrary to the name of the shirt, this is the actual spelling of his name) was on constant rotation in my household. My mom was a huge MacGyver fan, which later turned into a general obsession with Richard Dean Anderson (but that’s a different story). So as I was perusing the collection over a TeeZeria, I couldn’t help but notice this black MacGyver themed T-Shirt. First off, everything within the bubble is brilliant – love it! The only problem I have (and maybe the biggest) is that other than the mullet – that doesn’t look like MacGyver! That might just be me though. What do  you guys think?

Pick up Mgyver from TeeZeria for $20 and since the store is themed after a Pizzaria (TeeZeria – get it?) all orders are shipped in a custom pizza box.

Oh, really Michael!

Ever wished you could be K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider? Well now you can with this shirt from Etsy designer, rubyred. Rubyred, an artist we’ve featured on the blog before, had this to say about the design:  “I’ve been playing around with a new halftone technique and created this as a test, it looks a little like that strange talking car from the 80s!” I have to say that paired with a blazer, this shirt looks slick!

Pick up “Oh, really Michael” from the rubyred Etsy store for $26.13.

McFly Till I Die

Back To The Future is easily one of my favorite movies from my childhood. Everything about that movie was iconic. So when I saw this shirt from Cuttin’ Up Hookers I was instantly drawn to it – it’s the 80’s kid in me. And need I say that image on this shirt of Marty McFly is epic! It truly is. I all of a sudden feel like watching this flick on DVD.

McFly Till I Die is available now from Cuttin’ Up Hookers for $19.99 but unfortunately it is available only in very limited sizes – small, extra large and girls large. Too bad I can’t go back in time to get myself a large.

One Eyed Willie

The Goonies is one of my favorite movies of all time! It’s one of those movies from my childhood that I would watch over and over and over again. I remember the first time I watched The Goonies, my dad had brought it home after “testing out” the local video store. I was super excited and blown away by this movie. Thanks, Dad!

One Eyed Willie is in reference to the fictional pirate that died on the The Inferno. Of course, if you’ve watched the movie, kids set out on a hunt to find One Eyed Willie and his fortune to save their town from being bought out and demolished and then all hell breaks loose. The Goonies is such a wonderful film, if you haven’t it already seen it then add it to your Netflix queue today!

You can pick up One Eyed Willie from SnorgTees today for $18.95.

Castle Grayskull: Home Sweet Home

For the record, I was a HUGE Masters of the Universe fan growing up. HUGE! I had all of the “action figures” and I even had the epic Castle Grayskull! In fact, I still have all of the figures tucked away in a closet somewhere in my parents home. Having said that, I was blown away by this tee from Robit Studios. It’s appropriately titled Home Sweet Home and it undoubtedly features the characters of Castle Grayskull. Sweet! I’m a grown man and I want this shirt – nothing wrong with that because this shirt is epic.

Home Sweet Home is printed on an asphalt American Apparel tee and is available now for purchase from Robit Studios for $21.

And this is the toy Castle Grayskull that I spoke of above in all of its epic glory:

Rising by Yaiagift

Go Ape Shirts lives! This is the first shirt we’ve seen from Go Ape in nearly three months and it’s called Rising and it was designed by the mysteriously named artist, Yaiagift. I have to admit, that for me, it seems like an odd departure from the typical Go Ape look and feel. It’s definitely different but admittedly clings to the fun themes we’re used to from Go Ape Shirts. I’ve been seeing so much neon as of late. Neon is taking over the Internet in 2009.

Rising by Yaiagift is printed on a white American Apparel tee and is available now from Go Ape Shirts for $18. Wear this shirt and spear a dragon. I dare you.

ZAP Exploded

The Exploded guys (that’s what I’m calling em’) have done it again! This time, they’ve deconstructed the original Nintendo Zapper for our geek pleasure. Designed by artist Garry Booth, this design brings us all the way back to the 80’s when Duck Hunt was a fresh faced phenom and not regulated to the used video game bin at the local video game store. 

Growing up I LOVED playing Duck Hunt if only because using a gun to shoot flying pixels resembling ducks on my TV screen was the closest I would get to duck hunting in Hawaii. 

This gem can be had from ZapExploded.com for $17.
