Reece Ward X Star Wars

Reece Ward, who I’ve featured on the blog quite a few times before (Tetris Skyline, Love Is Blind, Invisible), has landed quite a sweet gig. He was contacted earlier this year by Lucas Films and commissioned to do some official limited edition Star Wars T-Shirt.

“…Just before Christmas I was contacted by Lucasfilm Ltd. They contacted me, and said they where fans of my work, and would I like to design a couple of tees. And of course, without a moments hesitation, I said yes! I think I would have said Yes! If they had asked me to sell my soul!”

I might have sold my soul as well if given the opportunity!

According to Ward, his designs will be slowly released through the rest of the year and possibly beyond. To start, they’ve just made available Bow TIE Tuxedo and the Han Solo inspired Pyew Pyew designs. Both T-Shirts are available now for purchase for $21.99.

Congratulations Reece! I can’t wait to see the rest of your designs as they roll out!

The Imperial Undead

I’m not the biggest fan of the zombie/gore genre, especially when the shirts take themselves too seriously. Parody shirts, however, I am a fan of. This tee by ShantyShawn melds two of my favorite things, Star Wars and parody designs. The fact that the characters have been turned into freakish zombie types, doesn’t really bother me too much. I think the new look gives Darth Vader some character.

“If you thought the Empire was evil before, now they’re undead and hungry for some rebel flesh. If you love zombies and Star Wars, then this is a must have for your wardrobe. Your Jedi friends will be sooo jealous!”

The Imperial Undead is available now at ShantyShawn’s RedBuble shop for $23.94. If you dig his design, you may also want to check out his online portfolio, Shawn Conn: Snapshots from Hell’s Carnival.

Chucknorium + @-@

So I was checking out the Reckoning at Shirt.Woot and I stumbled on two awesome tees. The first of the two is currently at the top of the reckoning at it pretty much blew my mind, like all other Chuck Norris memes seem to do. The shirt is called Chucknorium and is a parody of the very popular (on the web at least) Periodic Table of Elements. If you’re a science geek and you heart the omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent Chuck Norris, then you’ll definitely love this shirt.

The second tee will appeal to any Science Fiction geek with an appreciation for fine typography. The shirt is called @-@ and was designed by Threadless veteran David Staffell. David did a great job at re-imagining the All Terrain Armored Transport, more popularly known as AT-AT’s, from the Star Wars Universe. If Glenn Jones from Glennz tees were to somehow have his design genes combined with Jeff Sheldon from Ugmonk, something like this would be the result.

A Sad Stormtrooper

What could be more depressing than a sad Stormtrooper? A sad Stormtrooper with tears! Nowhere on the product page do they make any mention of this being a Stormtrooper from the Star Wars franchise, but, don’t you think it looks like one? Sorry comes to use from UK based indie clothing brand, Boom. The design is printed on a 100% organic cotton tee and is available now for purchase for £12.50.

Admiral Ackbar ASCII

Admiral Ackbar has been getting a lot of attention in the tee world as of late. First it was the popular Obama Hope parody tee featuring the admiral called “Trap.” And now Might Tees has released a limited edition (150 shirts printed) Admiral Ackbar ASCII It’s A Trap tee. The design was inspired by the ASCII art that liters the Digg comments section and is part of the Might Tees Death by ASCII Art series. It’s  A Trap is printed on an organic cotton tee and is available now from Might Tees for $35.99.

Kosher Ham Gets a Facelift

Our buddy Jeremy Bloom from Kosher Ham let me in on some privileged information (ok, maybe just a little heads up)! His brand has just undergone a major face life, a kosher one of course. The Kosher Ham website has been redesigned from the ground up and has been built to make the user experience that much better. I have to admit that it does look much slicker now, great job guys!

They’ve also released a bunch of new tees and will also begin to sell all of their designs on tote bag so be sure to keep an eye out for those. 

The New Kosher Ham

And of course I’ve got a few Kosher Ham recommendations for you! In fact, I’ve got three. The first one is one that I’ve been waiting for someone to produce – it’s the Jon & Kate Plus Nine tee! I think they might have to change that to ten considering there have been allegations that Kate might have not been so faithful herself!

All of these tees are printed on American Apparel blanks and are available for $19.99 and remember 1. you get a free tee if you buy 3 (awesome) and 2. you can save an extra 10% if use the coupon code COTYFANS at checkout. Now go get kosher!

Good v Evil by Glennz Tees

Glenn Jones consistently pumps out awesome tee and this one is no different. This one is called Good v. Evil and is an obvious homage to Star Wars. It’s printed on an asphalt American Apparel tee and is available now for $19.95.

“The annual Good v Evil game is watched throughout the universe. Who will prevail when opposites collide? There’s personal battles all over the park and it’s hard to separate them as the force is strong! This design attracted a huge amount of votes in a short time so it was time to print!” – Glenn Jones

AT-AT Anatomy by rubyred

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a Star Wars inspired tee here so I am more than happy to feature this tee of beauty titled AT-AT Anatomy and designed by rubyred. It’s a great tee that I stumbled upon while perusing redbubble and it seems that this particular design has been getting a lot of love (by way of comments) there so I thought it was worth sharing. I have to say that it kinda reminds me of Glennz Tees for some reason, they have a similar style. 

Since the Dark Side started using genetically modified walkers, they found many had to visit the Imperial Veterinary Clinic of Osteology suffering with acute pain in their hip joints. X-rays revealed their skeleton structure was just not strong enough to manoeuvre wearing those heavy boots. No amount of Cod Liver oil would ease their pain.

The tee is available now from redbubble in a variety of color options. You can pick one up now for $26.13 after currency conversion.
