You really have to be the kind of person who likes making new friends to wear this kind of shirt. I can see the many strangers now coming up to me with confused expressions on their faces to ask the inevitable question: "What's your shirt mean?"

I'm not sure I'm ready for the pressure of it.

I totally see where you're coming from. It is a lot of pressure.

It's the Atari symbol plus Vader's mask.

Same here, but is this a joke about Vader playing the game of Asteroid by Atari?

You have to be a (man)child of the 80's to really appreciate this shirt.

I'm not sure there is any joke, or anything to catch here. I think it's just a shirt design trying to be clever by fusing the Atari logo and Darth Vader together. If there is something more to it, it's gone right over my head.

That's how I took it. Plus they are both similar time periods.

While I can appreciate the mashup (kind of), I had immediately thought of the recent deals posting extravaganza on the same topic... I guess I'm the only one.

I guess that's it. I, too, thought I was missing the joke... but now I realize there probably isn't one.

It just is.

The Atari 2600's nickname was "Darth Vader" because the console looks like Vader's mask.

Or a (woman)child of the 80's. That'll do too.

Eh?. I don't get it. Vader's mask doesn't look like two back to back ski slopes. It looks like a slightly pudgy McDonald's sign.

I’m old and old school. Good old Vader in Empire 1980, chopping off his son’s hand and hiring scum Bounty Hunters = awesome. Retro Atari, in its heyday, black on white sexy, iconic logo and pioneer gaming company = awesome. Atari logo shape like Vader’s mask and 2600 console reputation (well, it was in my mind, I had been drinking) = *hic*. ATARI five letters, VADER five letters = rock on! And hey, if you want to think Vader chasing Han & co into an “Asteroids” field then all the better :D Nice visuals for a SW tee – enjoy! Cue heavy breathing *housssh-shhh*

Great writeup! Too bad Vader himself couldn't make a cameo.

The shirt doesn't look like Vader's mask and the console doesn't look like Vader. Go make some toast and see if the Virgin Mary pops up.

Evidently you don't remember the well known "Atari Vader" - just search the phrase. The shirt-designer didn't invent this on their own!

Not every Atari 2600. Just the 'Vader. ;)

I mean, c'mon, there's the 4-switch woody, the heavy sixer, the light sixer, the Junior...

Hmm, interesting point out of the reprint ... thanks for the link.

Love the Jedi Swoosh hoodie, although I question the wording - should it be "Do or Not Do" versus their "Do or Do Not"?

Wondering if George was playing ATARI back then and just drop the "SPACE IN" for his Movie? HUMM!

American Apparel or Anvil? That's new, isn't it?

American Apparel tees are all US Made, I think. But Anvil appears to do some offshore and some onshore.

Is it possible to know where the Woot Shirts are made?

Judging by the winning shirts lately it looks like a lot of designers are still staying away.
And at age 55 and after the horrible prequels anything Star Wars is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.Kind of like a song you loved that got run into the ground till you can't stand to hear it.You remember loving it but never want to hear it again.

My first thought was that it looked like the engineering fountain at Purdue University. I guess only a Purdue grad would see that though.

I am going to buy the shirt that fits me, which is Anvil. AA, not so much. Has nothing to do with where it is made. And I am not going to buy American made just because of where it was made if it does not fit me as well. Has nothing to do with the price.
