To clear up speculations (though, it's sooo nice to read them haha) there is not too much thought behind this except that I love "strong female protagonists" and Science-Fiction - and the whole "girl fighting a giant robot" motive is probably an image that has appeared a hundred times in our pop culture ;-)



Love the shirt queenmob! The write up is killer too.

Very true. That moves me even more toward the direction of purchase.

The dialect and cadence of the write-up reminded me a lot of Firefly. I kept reading it in Mal's voice.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

But I also definitely love the Yoshimi Song (even though I made the reference not super clear by making the robot green instead of pink).



Awesome shirt design, and congrats on the print!

Honestly, despite everyones looking to find something similar, if someone actually DID happen to produce something completely original with no similarity to anything else in existance, i'm pretty sure no one would bother to buy it, especially among this inbred gaming crowd..

If I pay extra, can this get shipped via TARDIS and get here before Christmas?

Actually the write-up is perfectly ambiguous. I infer that she was vaporized.

SMART POST SUCKS - 2 WEEKS AND WAITING
Two weeks ago it shipped and it is still days away. Woot screws me again. It seems every time I order from Woot I get the slowest shipping in the world. I'm stupid for even buying from them again



ah honey, if you lived in Texas you'd get it in less than 5 days, but...you'd pay tax. in for 2, something for my daughter and me to wear while qualifying for our concealed carry permit.

I saw some others say you should not slam Woot for the already admittedly slow FREE postal service (Woot makes damn sure you know it is SLOW) but I think you are in effect slamming the artist of this shirt, Anna-Maria Jung, which deserves it in no way. Not even taking Anna's exceptional talent into consideration, you are in essence blaming her for something that not even WOOT has control over.

Essentially, YOU are reliably the person who has control over how quickly your shirt arrives. Select overnight and guess what, you got it so fast you can by-pass the pre-wash standards and wear it three weeks straight until you burn holes in the arm pits! But then i guess you would again blame Anna for that eh?

Well. I just got my very first weapon, a semi-auto shotgun (Remington 11-87 12g, EFF WHY EYE), for xmas. And my hair is long and sometimes poufy when blowing out in the dry, hot, radioactive winds of a post-apocalyptic metal-skeletalled cityscape. And I enjoy robots. And I love dystopian SF. And I appreciate the red and aquas on the black. And so I guess I really, really, really love this design.... OH GODS OF ALL SENTIENT AND NONSENTIENT GOODNESS YES GOLDENTHORN MUST HAVE THIS SHIRT NOW.

*clickclickclicks the ridiculously big gold button all the way through*

Ahhh.... much better. Much, much better now...

(Imma wear this for the first time I go clay shooting with my very own zombie-robot-killing boom-boom stick!)

Love the design. Thinks it's totally epic just don't need anymore black shirts. Would love to have seen this on a navy or maybe even a red shirt and have the red of the shirt show through the eye.

I'm sorry it wont make it. I bought one because I want to support kick ass lady shirts.

This has an River/Echo feel to it. I love it.

My son wants to be an astronaut (he;s got the grades for it), and his GF had me snag her this so she can rock her love of him and destroying aliens.

Just got mine. I like to pretend that girl on the shirt was me when i was 14.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.
