In the midst of all the April Foolery yesterday, StarWars.com shared our first look at the official Celebration t-shirts, but they are indeed for real. I doubt these will be the only t-shirts – I’d expect at least one in-panel reveal, probably for The Force Awakens – but it’s almost certainly the bulk of them.
Her Universe has added new tops, a 77 Logo tee and a Vintage Poster Racerback tank (both $28,) plus there’s a mystery tee ($10.)
Many of the older items are on sale – most of the t-shirts will only run you only $15, and the Mara and Jaina shirts are both only $16.80.
This is a last chance sale for some of the shirts – and I have to wonder if that means our last chance for the EU ones – and the sale will last through May 5.
Ashley Eckstein introduces Her Universe’s Hot Topic exclusives, including a few things we haven’t seen yet.
New in the Her Universe store today is a Fish Fingers and Custard tee and a subtle Live Long and Prosper polo. Both are available in plus sizes.
‘It’s A Trap,’ the above design by Brian Kesinger, is the winner of We Love Fine’s first Star Wars tee design contest. I’m glad to see that the franchise is finally harnessing the massive amount of fan talent out there for t-shirts.
I do wish there were less bounty hunter stuff among the top choices, but I didn’t vote.
It’s official! Her Universe and BBC Worldwide have hooked up to create a Doctor Who collection! The first four shirts feature the Tardis (of course) and a tribute to River Song. And the image Ashley revealed yesterday? It’s “a special Doctor Who logo just for female fans which will only appear on merchandise from the Her Universe collection.”
The graphic looks to be the same as / similar to the one on the Dolman top that Ashley blogged about a month ago – and note she also mentioned racer-backs there! This is almost certainly to be one of the new shirts that will be available on May 4.
