Earlier this week Super7 announced its newest collaboration with Lucasfilm, a line of Star Wars designer t-shirts! Star Wars x Super7 Collection Series 1 includes three designs, “Star Wars Arcade,” “AT-AT Boombox” and “Camo Walker,” all designed by Super7 found Brian Flynn. Of the three designs my favorite is definitely “Star Wars Arcade” because of the nostalgic factor. I freaking loved that game as a kid! If you can’t tell, it’s basically a recreated screencap from the 1983 Atari game. From a design standpoint, the coolest tee is the “Camo Walker,” which features an AT-ST Walker with a camouflage pattern of the forest of Endor (complete with speeder bike silhouettes) contained within.
Normally The Blot would be super excited about this release. I love Super7 and I love Star Wars, so this has to be good right? But for some reason these first three designs just don’t do it for me. There are so many Star Wars t-shirts hitting the market these days you’ve really got to come up with something unique to get fans excited. I also think the plethora of “a t-shirt a day” websites has spoiled us. Their unlicensed designs have really pushed the boundaries of t-shirt designs and mash-ups. This just feels like a missed opportunity.
All three Star Wars x Super7 Collection Series 1 t-shirts go on sale next Thursday, March 1st, at the Super7 online store. Each shirt comes in sizes S-2XL and will retail for $25 each.
