So I guess this answers the question on how many dark lords does it take...

If I hadn't sworn off Star Wars shirts in protest, I'd buy this. Such a clever design!

What's that powder clinging to your credit card? Oh wait, this is capitalism.

That's some precision light bulb changing. A little bit higher and you might stop breathing.

You think we're going to ship shirts on the day Thomas Jefferson gave birth to baby America? How unpatriotic of you! No we'll ship your shirts on Thursday, July 5th. I loved the disclamer. Happy 4th Everyone.

The minimalist nature and huge distance between Vader and the light bulb is what really makes the shirt. It wouldn't be the same if he were closer or more stuff was going on.

The Darklord finds the lack of light disturbing.

Just think of the shards of glass all over the floor from the young padawans learning this in Jedi school. Poor Yoda and his bare feet.

Wasn't there a running out of jokes/mining for puns writeup a while back? Doubly ironic, if so.

So is he replacing a burned out bulb with a new bulb, or a working bulb with a dark bulb?

I don't know.

Vader isn't worried about the planet, he isn't using energy efficient bulbs.

I don't know.

The first thing I noticed were the bulbs as well.

True story: Using inefficient incandescent light bulbs were his "Plan B" for destroying Alderaan.

It would be funnier if it was Yoda since he's much smaller. Besides, too many vadar shirts.

Wonder if this was plan B after ruling out Vader changing the bulb on his light saber?

Don't despair Woot. There will not be a pun shortage on my watch. If you run out of pure puns, you can always resort to crossing puns. Fortunately, that's not as dangerous as crossing streams.

For example...

Well Vader, I guess you've finally seen the light.
Vader: Yes, I have seen the light... I'm putting the band back together.

phileoca wrote:It would be funnier if it was Yoda since he's much smaller. Besides, too many vadar shirts.


No way. It can't be Yoda. Wouldn't work. Yoda never turned to the dark side. Don'tcha get it, dark lord, light bulb. eh? eh!

This is symbolism at its finest. He's replicating The Creation of Adam. Where he (Darth) is reaching towards Adam, aka The Lightbulb, aka Luke Skywalker. Since Luke is Adam, and his sister is well.. you know. That means Adam and Eve were brother and sister, and yes, technically that IS true. So Luke and Leia are Adam and Eve, and the artist is depicting that Darth is God. But, he wants to change the bulb, he wants to CHANGE Luke. Or rather, replace overall. As you all know, the Mayans predicted the end of mankind (Please don't research too much into this. Just take my word. 100% of it.) as we know it by Dec 21, 2012. I believe this shirt is telling us that God (Darth) is going to replace MAN with a different sub-set of species, one more worthy of his image. And so, we are the Lukes of this planet, but soon, our lord and savior will have us replaced. It's just a matter of time. And this t-shirt depicts that. It's only a matter of time until He uses "The Force". Because waiting and using calmer matters such as reaching up, reaching OUT to US, obviously didn't work. And so, he will have to resort to his godly powers to truly make a change.

God bless us all. It looks like our time has truly run out.

yes it's me lol

I admit that I giggled. I wouldn't wear it on a shirt. If only because no one will notice the bulb by the neckline and it will look like he's reaching for my left boob.

Exactly. I can't spend $12 for a grope. MAYBE if it was Mace Windu.

Why does everything sold on the 4th of July need to be Independence Day-related? We're celebrating our freedom to sell whatever the heck we want on a t-shirt.

You want a patriotic shirt? Go to Old Navy.

No come to WOOT. Woot always serves up plenty of Holloween/Xmas/Easter/Turkeyday Shirts. I expected something similarly cool today. Even Woot is celebrating, they arent shipping till tomorrow.

Although I would admit that in many ways and unlicensed tshirt paying tribute to one of the greatest movie franchises of all time is festive in its own way. Happy 4th all!

My first shirt purchase. I hope I selected the right size and I hope I'm not disappointed with the quality of the shirt.

Why would anyone (who had to ship) sell a patriotic shirt on 7/4?? It won't arrive until next week at the earliest and then I would have to wait a full year to wear it! You get 2 weeks, tops, to wear holiday clothing BEFORE said holiday to wear festive garments, with the exception of Arbor Day, that salt water is good year round!

Prime time to sell is 3 weeks prior to the holiday. 1 week to ship, 2 to wear.

I thought Vader was a enjoyed the dark side? Oh well.

Just when you thought there were no more creative ideas for a Star Wars shirt, this one waltzes in and puts all others to shame. Well done..

Yeah, so there's that...

Agreed! Love the design but placement doesn't work really well for me. Put this on a Tote for me Woot and I'm in!

Awesome! My second shirt purchase for my husband. He loves Star Wars and it sort of reminded me of this commercial, which is his current favorite.

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!
