"Drop Bears"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drop_bear

After last week, I got clearance to do minimal work! YAY! *happydance*

UPDATE: Now on green: http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=58295

IMO I'd like either one. I hope this doesn't split the votes. >.<

+1 for the doe-eyed decoy.
+10 for the lunging attacker.
+ a kajillion for the eye-gouger!

GMV!

Re: Drop Bears


cool design, but who wears yellow? No one. I would re-sub on a different shirt color

Re: Drop Bears


This shirt is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Of the few Australians I've met, most of them warned me of the drop bears. I foolishly didn't listen and my family was devoured on a trip through Victoria. It was only the likes of Crocodile Dundee that saved me... er... that might have just been a dream I was having once.

Now 100% chock full of little wind-up robots!

Re: Drop Bears


GMV as always. I do agree with the statement that it should be re-subed in a different color. Most people don't respond well with yellow due to it being a hard color to match with other things and you needing a certain skin tone to make it look good. I like the image on yellow, but with fall coming in it isn't the best color to work with during the season. Just some CC. ^^' I will buy it no matter what color it prints on. hehe

Wow, I really need this shirt!
The koala happily munching in the guy's leg - fantastic! :D

If it was, as already pointed out, in another color, I would even love it more.

Re: Drop Bears


Thanks for the support thus far and I hear you on the yellow. This was on grass initially, before I ran out of ink colors and had to switch. There aren't tooooo many options here. In terms of ink colors, black, white, and red all stay. Peachy skin color stays too, unfortunately, because otherwise the tourists look ill. Gives me two colors to work with plus whatever the shirt color is. I'm open to suggestions.

This was the result of tinkering with grass: http://fablefire.com/dropbearsgrass.png

I have 6 lemon shirts, so obviously I don't mind. I find the color mutes out after a few washes anyways, especially if washed in dark loads.

Alright. It's on green. Let's see if you're right:

Ja, I'm a yellow convert. Liked it after buying the imaginary sock land shirt. It goes well with the shade of blonde I have.

@everyone - Thank you! Eye-gouging koala enjoys his work.

@"no one wears yellow" crowd - It's on grass now. Hoping this won't split the votes but figured I'd give you the option to go green. I have a couple friends who look terrible in the lemon color.

Re: Drop Bears


I actually reevaluated my votes in hopes that this would make it to the fog. As of now, you are 1 away! Here's hoping this one makes it to print!

P.S. I love that it is on yellow.

The expressions here are so priceless. Dang, I didn't think I'd be voting in this derby, but nevermind.

Re: Drop Bears


Hmm. This one's fogged and the other one is climbing towards the fog. I'm kinda wondering what Woot would do if there's ever an instance where a shirt and a resub both hit the top 3. Print as they normally do? Print only one of them? Print both on the same day like truffleshuffle's two winners?

How on earth are dropbears not considered pop culture? Seriously.

In this case, probably offer both colors.

It's -culture-, yes? But it's not -popular- culture. It's a common local myth buy many people outside Austrailia haven't heard of it. Like me.

I voted for both yellow and green.

Has anyone got two shirts in the top 3 with the same design?

Re: Drop Bears


I'm glad you subbed this one first because I really prefer the sunny yellow. It seems a lot more appropriate. (Hope the green one isn't splitting your votes too much!)

Same, no. Similar, yes - Derby #11, the Puffaluffs took 2nd and 3rd.

Re: Drop Bears


not a fan of manga-looking eyes, but the sadism of the t-shirt is enough for me to buy it, too much furriness and cuteness already present in my wardrobe

I still love this design more than any shirt I've ever seen - there has to be another way to get this made? Throw it onto zazzle or something?
