It's the Tardis. The phone booth would just be silly.

I completely and utterly agree... that would be an instant recognition.
I've never heard/seen this "Tardis" thing before.


Seems to have been referenced in a ton of places, though, I never would have realized it.

THis is my sig, deal with it?

I think even people over 12 but under 18 or 20 probably won't get it either.

To be honest, I wasn't even aware of Dr. Who until a few years ago and I am in my twenties. But then again, I think Dr. Who will be less know here in the states... it is one of Britain's longest running series after all.

Well, that's the phone booth I thought it was. I did a quick check and this is not theirs, so which telephone booth is this? (What movie is this one from, then?)

Edit: Just figured it out. I haven't watched much Dr. Who but it's the same.

I agree that it should have been from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. More people would "get it" when they saw it, at least in the US.

I got the Dolorian from BttF but not the phone/police booth from Who. Who's not in my generation's arsenal of pop culture. At least not extensivley.

Now, a Starfox vs. Tails dogfight shirt... THAT would send me in a laughing frenzy. XD

EDIT: *looks at the button* It's throbbing??? Already!?

My woot! purchases: The Original Blue Hedgehog; To The Top in the Style of Da Vinci; Deforestation; The Owliminator; Yeti & Robot; Electronica (The holy grail of all shirts... THE SYNTH SHIRT! Wahoo! ^.^)
...and 1 Random. (I hope Woot! doesn't pull another Random Roulette on me for a long time; I need to hang on to my money!)

I also thought of all those rejected derby entries for having an image of the tardis and Woot saying there were copyright issues. And most were better than this shirt.

I was just saying to myself last night how I'd like a cool Tardis shirt, but the presence of the Delorean just ruins it for me.
Back to the Future was just - meh.

There's a giant geek somewhere inside of me that's really tempted to buy this shirt, but I'm not sure I'd actually wear it...

EDIT: Just sold out. It was available right before I made my post. I guess that solves my problem. I would have paid $10, but not $15. I'm a geek, but a geek who likes to save $5.

Just bought one as a gift for my son's 16th birthday. His geeky friends are going to be sooooo jealous when he shows up at Sci Fi club in this shirt.

The teen geek crowd will get it ... and fully appreciated having a shirt that not everyone gets.

Boss shirt, boss!

LOL! Went to bed early - woke up around 1 am and wasn't going to check, because the shirts have been SO blech lately - did out of force of habit.

Looked - freaked!

Looked AGAIN - FREAKED

Looked again - and didn't see a SOLD OUT sign...

In for my first 3fer...!!!

Wow.

Redwing air hockey gets reject from the tourney, even though that was a true parody, and on Monday they sell this shirt which is a copyright infringement of two series and available on another site.

Seems like a bit of a mixed message.

Or maybe they only want to produce designs that they think will have a wide appeal, I mean how many people are actually left in Detroit at this point?

Shame on you, shirt.woot. Either be consistent or do not reject any designs.

I'm upset this shirt is sold out already! I just woke up at 630am MT and am fans of DocWho and BTTF. :'(

Initially looked cool until I noticed the shirt color. If I buy this shirt and put it on, can I go back in time and change the shirt color from such an ugly gray to something decent? Or maybe go back and prevent "heather gray" from being invented?

I just decided to cave in and get one for a sci fi convention I am going to in June and it sold out. >_<

I'm surprised by how many people in the U.S. aren't at least familiar with Dr. Who. I catch flack all the time from my geek friends because I don't know all the fine details of the series. And my husband grew up watching it on late night TV. Guess it all depends on your "sphere of entertainment".

I loved this shirt last night and decided to wait 'til morning to buy. Which makes me a chump. Won't be the first time I've had to make a Reckoning purchase for hesitating. You'd think I'd learn by now.
Need this for a sci-fi convention coming up.
