hoodies
i09.com has posted an article in regards to fashion. Sorta. Two hoodies have been revealed, one is an Optimus Prime hoodie designed to look like his chest. Pull the hood up and zip up the faceplate and you're ready to do damage to the neighborhood as Optimus Prime! If Prime isn't your style, you can go Grimlock. Pull the hood up and you'll show off your Sharkticon crushing teeth.

Check out these crazy, yet fun, designs by clicking the link above or the title bar.

Neat! I think I need that Grimlock hoodie.

60 bucks? those look like cheap felt from wal-mart...

transforms your outfit to something that will get your ass kicked!
autotronprime
Wow, those are craptastic!
Bountyan
Nerdtastic.

I dare you guys to buy the Optimus Prime one and wear it in public for a week with the hood up and zipper fully up. Do it.
Chalice
Hoodies are pretty much my favorite article of clothing. I'd rock the fuck out of the Grimlock one no probs. Unfortunately I don't have $60 to spend right now.

That said, I'm 6'4" and 250 with a background in wrestling and martial arts, so I don't have a lot of fear about being an ubernerd in public.
j.a.f.o.
Well in that case Chalice, I would argue that you are one of few who could rock one and not get the level of ridicule that would come with wearing one of these things.
Chalice
Fair enough.

That said, I doubt I'd put up Grimlock's 'lower jaw' flap. It looks a bit silly. But I'd definitely do the hood with the teeth and whatnot.

And, in all honesty, Prime's is more useful with it's design. That faceplate will be great in cold weather cities.

Hell yeah not 60$ hell yeah but still nice I'd wear it around and it works for a Halloween outfit haha
Hollywood Hoist
If they had one that was child sized I would get it for my son.
Ravenxl7
Cool, but definitely not sixty-bucks cool.
Obsidian X
Haha
So silly looking, I'd never wear them but I kind of want them anyway.
Timesynch
Haha, if they made some Seeker hoodies I may bite. But these hoody decos are pretty ridiculous. XD
transformerwars
I ever wore one of those in public, I'd be torn apart...
soundwave69
I bought Grimlock days ago as soon as 80stees put it up on Facebook. Had to have it for Halloween. Judging by the responses in this thread, most of you are either cheapskates or 150lb weaklings.
Kylehudson14
Wow, they're cool, but oh so tacky & cheap looking :/
Autovolt 127
I'd buy that.....but not at 60 bucks.
Feralstorm
I clicked the link and laughed for five straight minutes.

Those look like silly fun, but I can't imagine wearing something like that anywhere on Earth outside of a Botcon (and the room is too warm for that )
Spiderus Prime
I like that Grimlock Hoodie.
Deceptigtar
easy alternative for a Halloween costume i guess if you want to be lazy lol.

i would prob buy a soundwave one.

and those are neat but a "please beat the crap outta me" hoodie isn't worth 60 bucks

Those would be great on a baby, on a grown man though...

I would never, ever, under any circumstances purchase an adults sized sweater of that design. That's freaking atrocious. May as well walk out of the house with a shirt that says "PLEASE PUNCH ME IN THE DICK!".

I bought the Grimlock one as well, but that's just because I was looking at 80stees for a new hoodie. I'm 5'3" and I will be wearing a 3X because the 1X I felt would be too "regular" sized on me (I hate wearing clothes that fit.) and the 2X sold out as soon as I went to buy it.

FREAKISH HOODIE WEARERS FOREVER! ^_^
TrueNomadSkies
I kinda like the Grimlock one, but its normally too hot where I live to ever wear a 2nd layer of anything, so chances are that it'd sit in my closet like 90% of my clothes already do. Plus like others in here are saying, they look pretty cheaply made for what they're asking, so I dunno haah.
figsdad
$60 how much is that in uk Money.?
Rotorstorm
Would have bought one a couple of days ago but they went out of stock fairly quickly.

roughly there is $1.5US to the pund so it works out about £40
Stormcrow
Oh!!!
I want one so I can go as a virgin for Halloween!
Grimwing
I like how the Optimus Prime one has the yellow energy bars on the arms.

The grimlock one reminds me of a sharkticon eating his own robot head.

On the other hand the grimlock is in far more neutral colors than Optimus Prime. So if you want one that looks less like a halloween costume for regular wear grimlock probably is the better choice.
lildevilchick
OMG I want that Optimus hoodie!
WarConvoy
LOL I say this just today aswell on IO9
I would like to buy them but donít know if I would ever where them in public.
Ceasar121
Bought.

To those of you worried about ridicule for wearing one of these, there are people with their face covered in tattoos, or wearing Jeans so tight you'd think they were strippers. Long as you wash your ass and dont make transforming sounds every two steps, I think youd have nothing to fear wearing these.
Enigma2K2
I don't care how much of a fanboy you are, you can't make these look cool on an adult.

These should be for smaller kids. And don't get me started on the hoods...
Thebricklord
That guy with the Grimlock hoody looks like this is the worst job ever.
AnAutobot1985
I wouldn't wear em. Botcon and Halloween maybe, like some people said. That's it.
Magneticus
lol nice... it looks chic enough. i might get the Grimlock hoodie.
Gingerchris
I would have one of it wasn't as bright. Maybe if the colours had been several shades darker. Do me one as a leather biker jacket.

I think it's not so much fear of ridicule but fear of a good kicking. It's okay if you're built like a brick shithouse so nobody would mess with you no matter what you were wearing, but if you're a weedy nerd wandering the streets in this you're going to get your lightest hour darkened by actual hoodies.

I wonder how long it would be before the police arrived if you hung around near a school yard wearing one of these...
Fort Max
Well those gave me a good laugh this morning.
Dinodigger97
Man, I want that Gimlock one. And I'll wear it in public.....if I wasn't the size of John Candy after going to Willy Wonka's Factory thing.

Not only would you get your ass kicked for looking like a transformer you'd also get it kicked for looking like a member of the kkk
Jerrymiru
... no. Just, no.

If you're going for the KKK look during your ass kicking, this would be more your style.



But Ya, I wouldn't be caught dead in these
trebleshot
I wish I had been able to attend the brainstorming session when they thought this up.

I wouldn't mind a blue hoodie with Soundwave's tape deck chest design on the front (like a lot of tees out there), but not one that incorporates his head as part of the hoodie.
