    I just went to my local Hot Topic to get the Autobot and Decepticons (yes! spelled it right without my keyboard betraying me!) wrist bands. While i was there, they literally had a whole stand (shelf... thingy) filled with brand new (and very soft) t-shirts and other apparel from transformers. Most included the retro shirts, classic Autobot and Decepticon symbols- but the last few had battle scenes from G1.

    These included characters such as (as far as i can recognize, the design of the shirt is called 'worn/faded' and therefore somewhat hard to see...double lines on the characters for effect ) Starscream, Megatron, Optimus, Jazz, Spinger, and various decepticons... which i can't make out who's who- at either Autobot city on Earth or Iacon (it's a tiny piece at thetop of the right sleeve, very hard to make out).

    the second shirt i bought has the decepticons in a fracture, mirror like design. Decepticons included on shirt are (first part) Soundwave, lazerbeak, and frenzy (second fracture) Thundercracker and Skywarp, (third fracture) Starscream (fourth fracture) the Constructicons (fifth fracture) the Insecticons (and final fracture) Megatron. Starscream and Megatron are glaring at each other and has a great shot of every character. Very clear image, and nicely made (in my opinion) has very soft material and can be purchased at your local Hot Topic (or at hottopic.com for those who wish to pay about 6.99 in extra shipping charges)

    They also had belt buckles, wristbands, wallets and hoodies (online store only for hoodies, currently half price to my knowledge). each with respective autobot and decepticon symbols. Not advocating hot topic, but its out there. They also recently got in a shipment of video game related t-shirts from Kingdom Hearts, Sonic the Hedgehog, Resident Evil 5, and Mario... didn't pay attention to any others.

    Just a note for fans. Time for cake.

    (just a side note, yeah i know they've had TF stuff for years, but they have never had stuff like this out! besides, it's fun to comment on what you think about the stuff and what your local stores have)

    My girlfriend came home from a shopping trip with the Decepticons shirt for me the other day. I was shocked, since she mostly rolls her eyes when I talk about TF's. Though she also picked herself up a Bumblee shirt at HT too, so she must not think they're too geeky!

    You are aware that Wal-Mart even has TF-related clothing, right? Heck, I'm still seeing Animated stuff there.

    I don't see anything special to remark upon because Hot Topic has and has had it.

    I never got pre-distressed clothing anyway.

    Then again, what do I know? The majority of my t-shirts are Halloween related (and for a specific haunted attraction company) because I've been getting them free for years.
