"1977 - Dark Side RESUB"

The first version got rejected so I've changed the shape to make it a little less Apple logo-y. I suspect it might still be iffy but figure I'll see what happens.

A mash up of Apple and the Death Star. Since Star Wars came out in theaters and Apple was incorporated in the year 1977.

Thanks for all the votes and comments on the first version.

I believe Woot's issue is with the Star Destroyer more than anything else.

Oooohhhh now I foresee another problem. Now that you've made the death star more spherical and less apple shaped you now just have a fan art piece of 8 bit starwars, which is nice but I think may still draw the rejectionator

LOL yeah that was why I didn't go all the way spherical. I'm hoping that this version makes it less trademarky while avoiding being just fanart.

I would vote for this one but that's the death star from Jedi (1983) not A New Hope (1977)

(Why, yes. I am a hopeless nerd)

Yes, this was pointed out in the first version of the shirt as well. =D

I'm going for a general beginning of the Star Wars franchise, rather then specifically the first movie only. The shape also doesn't actually match either of the Death Stars, I took some liberties to make the joke.

I love this concept.
It's my favorite iPad wallpaper.





Can't wait to get a shirt of it!

I love this shirt! I get that it is a combination of Star Wars and Apple because they both came to life that year, but I also love it because Apple is sort of like the dark empire at this point and the death star reference is very fitting.
