    Item #1: One Shall Rise

    Let's butcher a famous movie quote and put it on a T-shirt!

    Tranformers Optimus Prime Poster Shirt | Shirtoid

    Item #2: Alternate Universe Autobots

    Jazz has an out-of-robot-mode experience:

    Autobots Roll Out! | Shirtoid

    Item #3: Stupid Pun

    For a moment, a part of you might find this somewhat amusing, and then you realize it's just too stupid and dorky to wear on a shirt:

    Item #4: Fun With Stencils

    If this is "officially licensed," I'll buy one and eat it:

    Airbrushed Transformers | Shirtoid

    Item #5: Blurr Bond

    At least the artist is honest...but would anyone honestly pay $21 for this crap?

    Item #6: "Funny" T-Shirt

    I guess maybe you had to have been there?

    Transformers Decepticons SOUNDWAVE Custom Funny T-shirt - eBay (item 390117325828 end time Apr-05-11 12:37:13 PDT)

    Item #7: Optimized Prime

    Looks like someone swallowed a bunch of paint and threw up on this one. Also note the price tag.

    I'd comment, but I think yours pretty much say it all.

    I believe it's real (although 80stees not having it in stock makes me suspicious). I just have a hard time believing it's officially licensed. It just looks so...cheaply made, but I'll grant that I might have a different opinion if I saw the real shirt in person. Hard to go off a fake image of what the shirt looks like.

    I've seen some other officially licensed shirts I thought were ugly, like this one:

    But I still bought it because on second glance, I thought it would make me look like a paintball target. And I found that amusing for some reason.

    "One Shall Rise" would be perfect for underwear.

    Yeah, I almost didn't put that one on the list because I love that "hulked out" design. But it's described as a "funny" custom shirt and frankly, if it is a joke, it's a poorly-conceived one. If I had to guess at what the artist was going for, it's a really lame attempt to connect the "after these messages" with Soundwave being a tape recorder. But the custom Soundwave design is so impressive, that if the "after these messages" is actually a gag, the design ruins the joke.

    For that gag to work, Soundwave should have been in cassette player mode. And thus, it is T-shirt fail.

    Maybe there should be some kind of convention competition to turn up in the most fail-filled home made Transformers t-shirt. Although perhaps purposefully bad t-shirts can't be classed as fail if they succeed at being bad.

    Ever since he realized maybe he wasn't as superior as he thought. He wants to be Superior in every way.

    I may just be tired, but I cannot, for the life of me, find the problem with the second one.

    I guess a lot of people here would laugh at my home made Victory Leo shirt where I used the G1 box art.

    Their loss.
