You are correct. It will be on sale tomorrow for $15. You don't have to go to the sad rat race link though. The first post of this thread by Woot Bot has the link to the "ongoing sale" followed by a number that you can use to buy the shirt. The sad rat race link is a nice compilation of all the current shirts available though. They are an outside website not related to Woot.

Can you imagine if you bought one of the shirts that had the LED displays in it and then set it in the screen part of this shirt?!??!? I saw these shirts in Vegas and they're pretty cool (there was a store in the Circus Circus Hotel/Casino) - they're very annoying but so is this nintendo shirt.... maybe two annoyings make a killer shirt? Maybe.

and equals

Typical shirt.woot. Buncha' nerds make an appropriately nerdy shirt popular.

Congrats to rushblume. Looks like you're going to be making bucketloads on this one.



The Bandolier of Carrots shirt from the Woot-Off yesterday sold 3200 shirts in a little over 40 minutes.

That's a special case though. l o l

Normal shirts (everything but randoms) are not sold based on number of sizes. Once 2500 of ANY size are sold, the shirt is sold out.

You're not making any sense. You're saying it SHOULD be a prerequisite for selling a lot of T-shirts on a website, but the rest of your comment seems contradictory in nature to that statement.

I don't think it needs to be a masterpiece. But seriously, if you're over the age of, like, 14, this shirt is just a little inappropriate. It's time to move on from the Game Boy...

what? why is 14 some arbitrary age where it is no longer "okay" to play gameboy?

Look, I honestly don't think either party involved here (woot or the designer) deserve to be profiting off some third party like this. Same thing with that last zelda shirt (Except that was like my first woot, so I had no idea PAAAaaaAAaaaanCAAAAAKES! was going on to begin with). I also don't see how SO MANY PEOPLE could possibly support a shirt like this. It's not wootish. It's not a shirt you'd look at and go "Hey, that's a woot shirt!" It's not cute or witty or anything, it's just a blatant ripoff of someone else's work. But who cares, because it makes us money, right? Right. GG.

I hate seeing woot shirts that are spinoffs of big franchises like star wars/nintendo/etc. There's no point to them . GRAAAAAAAAAW, WOOT COMMUNITY, WHY DO YOU ALWAYS FAAAAAAAAIL MEEEEEEEE?

It's just a shirt... if you don't like it, don't buy it and move on...

so many people getting their woot-issued panties in a bunch over a t-shirt. sorry this one doesn't appeal to you guys....just buy the other 365 offered this year, and shut up.

i personally love this shirt. I will wear it QUITE often, and will be proud to do so.

I love the people who are spouting off about "this isn't a real woot shirt!".....well, woot's sellign it, so it's a woot shirt. if you can find the "what make a shirt a woot shirt" guidelines you're referencing, I'm sure te rest of us would love to see them.

it's a shirt. if you're THAT worked up over a t-shirt, you need help.

We are Gamer. We are Legion.

I can't remember the last time I've seen a shirt sell out this fast. Not really suprised though, when you have how many thousands of techies watching this site.

I didn't remember to check the site last night, but I am absolutely buying this shirt tomorrow.

I have to agree with the others. If you don't like the shirt, don't buy it.
