It just so happens that the other day I re-watched the J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek for the first time since seeing it in the theaters. I watched it on blu-ray and I have to say that I liked it this time around just as much as I did when I first saw it in the theaters. Watching it again made me realize how perfect the casting choice for Spock really was.
Speaking of Spock, Glenn Jones of Glennz Tees just released his newest parody tee featuring Spock and his familiar hand gesture. Live long and …. party? The shirt is called Party Trick and from the looks of the design it looks like our seemingly emotionless friend is up to some tomfoolery. Know a Trekkie in need of a Christmas present? This will make for the perfect gift!

Bombs Away! by Dale Edwin Murray and available at Tilteed.Pros: Excellent four color print, vibrant colors, fun design, printed on an American Apparel blank so you know I love the it and feel. Shirts come with custom hangtags but mine was shipped before the tags arrived. Perfect shirt for the kid at heart or for those who like to drop bombs!Â Cons: Not tagless, plain mailer. Price: $18
Vince Vulcan by Cloxboy.Pros: If you swear by the Sham Wow then this is the shirt for you! Perfect mashup of two epic characters, the Vulcan Spock and Vince Shlomi. This shirt comes from the guys that brought us the iSteamPhone, Exploded360, and Exploded128. Soft print on an American Apparel blank,Â Cons: Not tagless. I kind of wish that the print was a tad larger.Â Price: $20.
Here’s a T-Shirt that was created by Adam de la Mare in celebration of the recent Star Trek reboot. I did happen to catch the J.J. Abrams directed Star Trek on opening night and I have to admit that, despite my initial hesitation, I left the theater thoroughly captivated and wanting more! Abrams is an awesome storyteller.Â
The Evolution of Spock is essentially a tribute to our favorite Vulcan’s most recognizable characteristic – his pointy ears! You can pick up this tee from RedBubble for $25.94.Â
