Considering the line-of-sight from the suns to the characters in the foreground, their shadows make no sense.

This reminds me of a joke:

Knock-knock!
Who's there?
Bantha
Bantha who?
Bantha no Banth, I'm going swimming.


Hmmm, it works a lot better with the original panther.

Tatooine's a big planet, long trip. Hope he didn't forget to pachyderm.

Is it safe for an elephant to be under that costume with dual suns raining down heat?

Ok, this made me laugh more than I have at any shirt in a long time! Nice touch with the two suns as well. Apelad, you've definitely made my top five woot artists list after this one. IMO, no one can consistently pull off a joke shirt so well.

The force is strong with this shirt.

I'm sure this joke has never been used. No. Really.

I remember being a kid and going to Marine World (when it was still in the San Francisco bay area) and being amazed at the Bantha costume they had on display... it was worn by one of their elephants in Star Wars.

I want to mention what an excellent choice it was to put this design on a creme t-shirt. It really makes the whole image work better and, in essence, Apelad has turned the entire shirt into the Tatooine desert.

This is a daily shirt picked by the staff it doesn't have to follow the derby rules. =D

They've put a funny shaped blanket over the elephant in the room. Quick, ignore it and maybe it'll go away!

Thanks everyone! You all are too kind, I don't care what they say about you in Tosche Station.

As for the lighting question, I have several perfectly good excuses (pick your favorite):
There's a third sun, always off screen.
The suns you see here are merely painted on a backdrop (an additional low-fi special effect for the eagle eyed).
The true light source is the wearer's head (because that person is so bright).

So is the akin to a car cover for someone's elephant? Keeps it cool for future riding.

Yo uncle Owen, I know I'm on probation,

I got a layaway on a power converter,

Wow, so two of the weekend's derby winners got dailies this week. And the third had a daily the week before.

Heathen! This is a lie, Koford!

According to the Star Wars wiki it wasn't a trunk you could see in those shots, no, it was the bantha's long prehensile tongue. Yeah I bet you feel pretty silly now, huh.

I first read the title as Bantha-plant, and wondered if that meant the elephant is a spy.

Originally played by real elephants in ANH the workforce was shut out and the union was in uproar over being replaced by CGI in TPM. So sad.
Elephants need work too. This will go great with my @@ walker shirt.

My day is made with this shirt, however, now I have to sit down and watch all (as in original 3) of the the Star Wars movies.

Great timing with the Star Wars Blu-rays coming out in a month. Now I can wear this shirt when I go to buy them. Unless of course I order online which won't be as cool.

This shirt will look great on me when I go into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters.
