Hm... I like brown shirts, the colors are nice, the design is cool, I love 孙悟空, and what else can I say about it? I bought one.

This is a freakin awesome shirt but monkey king could be in so much more better color then blue like red, yellow, or even gold!!!

Freaking awesome shirt. I'm a white monkey, so I had to buy one. (Born in the year of the monkey, and a white guy.) My wife has always said I'm like Sun Wukong.

Your giving people a hard time about their money when they come to an instant gratification site? Dave would start a march to get woot shut down on principle.

Can anyone verify the meaning of the chinese characters? I don't want to get strange looks from chinese people because my shirt has a picture of a monkey and says "I enjoy man flesh."

From the artist, tgentry, in the derby thread:


"The text on the shirt reads "Sun Wukong" in traditional Chinese (I spent about an hour verifying this just to make sure)."

really nice colors, the blue is fantastic.


EDIT: I'm viewing the site in 1920x1200 which leaves tons of extra canvas, so get with the program woot and fill it up!

If I don't see you no more in this world, I betcha on the next one you'll know me! Don't be late!

Yes, it says Sun Wukong. You can check the Wikipedia page on the Monkey King where it lists the name in traditional Chinese characters. Also you can find it on several images of Sun Wukong throughout the net. I'm pretty confident that it's accurate.

The 3 characters are "Sun Wukong" which is his dubbed name. In Cantonese it sounds more like "soo mm hoong." But yea that's the name given to him by his master/teacher.

Here's a link to a more modernized TV series in Cantonese.

Keep in mind the right in the beginning the guy is talking fast in mandarin, whereas the theme song and show are all in Cantonese. I just don't want ppl getting confused.
They say his name "Sun Wukong" at 5:48 in the video. Enjoy

Are Sun Wukong and Son Goku the same person?

Congrats on the print. I was disappointed by this derby...I was hyped on the theme, and then the designs didn't grab me, so I decided not to get any shirts from it. Might get this for a friend though...*leaves Jaden in suspense*

In my monthly budget, I have $20 set aside specifically for Woot Shirts. If I did the rollover, then I'd have $50 to spend this month.

I love the design, but I can't bring myself to buy it. I think it's the brown shirt, but it wouldn't have worked on anything else.

Congrats, and there is no * next to this win in my brain.

Yes. Sun Goku is the way the characters are pronounced in Japanese.

Oh, thanks for the quick response. I figured that they were the same but wasn't entirely sure.

In fact, that's simplified Chinese not traditional, they only differ by the first character though
