Albeit an hour late, it's that time again, time for Shirt.Woot to arbitrarily take all the voting power out of your grubby little mitts and exert some totalitarianism on this Derby. We're dipping into the Honorable Mention shirt designs from Derbies 160 - 173. The pain of just barely missing out could be soothed with the healing touch of triumph; or old scabs could be ripped unceremoniously off only to lose out again. Should be fun!

Designers: if in the meantime you've opted out of including your design in the Double-Take Derby, or sold/submitted your Honorable Mention design somewhere else, email us at shirt@woot.com by noon tomorrow and let us know. Any design found submitted for voting to another site, sold on another site, or for sale on another site will not be eligible for the Double-Take Derby and will be removed from consideration. Because we're jealous like that.

This is perfect timing because there are some great 'home for the holidays' designs in the running. (Gimme gimme lucky's fruitcake!)

Good luck to all of the honorable mentions.

I have these three in the running:








I'm quite proud of these designs, I feel like they're very... me. Thanks again to Woot for the second chance. :^)

So pardon my ignorance, but does this mean that new and "never a bridesmaid" designers don't get to participate? I will enjoy looking at all of the great artwork, but I must say that I am very dissapointed that I will not get to submit. Being a holiday, I actually was going to have quality extra time to show what I am capable of.

So do we typically get the theme of next week's derby ahead of time during these double take derbies? I thought I had read that somewhere, and I'm excited to have a full week to work on an entry before it opens.

I haven't been around long enough to be familiar with all of the entries that will be brought forward into this week's derby so it should be fun to see, but I know I've got my fingers crossed that your Unicorn Steakhouse design places Bass. Love that shirt.

I think if any of mine have a chance to fog it'll only be the Unicorn Steakhouse. Halloween entries don't typically do well, and that one did particularly poorly for me, hahaha. (must be the beatup stationwagon's fault) The cave b0ts might do ok, but it will be a very tough field, esp if they include the entries from the actual robots derby. My b0ts would be crushed!!! (and deservedly so!)

Aww thank you! I really like it too, but Double-Takes are always a tough. Thanks for remembering the Unicorn!

Also, sometimes they list the next theme, sometimes they don't. Depends on how benevolent the Woot gods are feeling ^_~.

If they do is it usually when they announce it's the double take or later?

It might be me, but I think the quality of the entries in the last few derbies has gone up considerably. Will definitely make this double-take interesting.

Plus it gives me time to get caught up with work so I can try to enter Derby 175...

Should be a fun double derby. I really felt there's been a lot of good work stacking up that didn't print. Good luck all.

I have one entry in the double-take derby this time:



Curious to see how well this will do... On the other hand, and since I didn´t follow most of the derbys, whose HM´s are now on the running, it will be almost like a regular derby, and so I hope to find some cool surprises.

I imagine those will be pushed back into the next double take. It's been a pretty crazy week.

I imagine this is old news cuz I ain't been round in a couple weeks, but when did woot make the brilliant move of formalizing "we sure do pay that tgentry guy a lot of money"? Congrats!

I'm really hoping for some Draxx/Crescent Debris (Constellation Child or Playground in particular) or the invasion of the tapes entry. Or all three! Cmon woot, you haven't got any of my money in a long time, you know you want it!

I was thinking the same thing. Major kudos to everyone with the honor of going up for print again, but I can't help but feel a little hurt that I won't be able to submit when this is one of the only weeks I have free during the school year. I'll be over here /qqing in the corner if anyone wants to join me ;)

Aww, no corner qqing. You can still work on something. Make it a daily submission, or something for another site. Or do a snowy design. There'll probably be a wintery derby at some point. Chin up!

...I'm not usually this positive and uplifting. I think I'm drunk on Thanksgiving box wine.

Dear people-who-wanted-a-derby-to-work-on:

This would be a GREAT weekend to brainstorm/create a daily/enter a new contest. The derbies are a great inspiration jump-off point, but art can ALWAYS be created. Go go go!

Obviously #173 was the Robot derby, so where are the HMs for it? Perhaps this was a mistype?

Or perhaps the team was initially hoping to announce the HM's prior to the start of the Derby on Friday. Mr. Gentry was recently hired by Woot as an Art Director, so if he says it might get pushed back due to a hectic week, why not believe him? It's not really that big of a deal anyways.
