In lieu of blog updates, at Botcon I will hold my robots in front of my stomach under where my shirt says "LOOK WHAT I BOUGHT: LATEST GALLERY"

The Transformers internet fandom is cashing in on the tremendous consumer demand for ugly shirts to wear at Botcon. Good for them! If the official awful Botcon shirts weren't so expensive we wouldn't have to resort to making our own. Is it just me or have the official convention shirts sucked ass since about 2003? If I'm going to wear something stupid with robots on it, I want to at least make it myself so it sucks on purpose. Here are two fantastically obnoxious shirt designs I'm thinking of making for the big Carbiecon:

Sign me up for a shirt with one of those image on either side. It's a win-win.

Also, I'm thinking of blogging here again. Is it difficult to upload images? I remember it being a bitch when I opened my account here and was a major factor in my non-use.

You can actually buy the unmolested version of the Shogun Warriors shirt over at Kurt's Shirts. I am seriously considering buying that to wear at Botcon. Or I may just make my own and replace the text with "The Fart Party".

Blogger has implemented a new format that is supposed to make things easier but I still use the old Blogger so I have to edit my own image code to make it work how I want. I wouldn't be able to tell you if switching over to the new way is any easier in terms of photo uploading.

Would you hate me if I said we jokingly might have some Plastic Crack shirts?

See... since we do toy shows around the area now, I wanted a unifying store approach and I've sorta begun the process of turning Plastic Crack into a side business here in Ohio.

Though honestly, I'd rather no the general populace knowing who I am.

I would buy the Overcompensating shirt in a hearbeat.

I don't hate people for wearing shirts Nala, but I do think it's funny how some of the podcast shirt designs are so bizarre they're scary. From the look of Plastic Crack it's obvious you have an eye for design so I doubt your shirts will come out scary.

I run into the problem with legality.

I really need to undo Shockwave if I plan to finalize any of the sales stuff.

I even feel bad about using art that is not my own for my site design (and hence why the earlier version throughout the site uses mostly small photos of the toys).

It is unlikely that I'd do my final stuff with anything even remotely smelling of Hasbro or Takara.

Legality? Who cares?

Wow. I should forward that D&R logo to Nintendo.
