I've been drawn to The Thing That Scoots for a very long time. But I still can't see myself actually wearing it.

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

I must ask Kristy and Amy what size they would suggest for the hoodies...Are they men's type sizes or women's type sizes?

Hi, I'm Kristy! They are probably better considered men's sizes. I usually wear a ML in our shirts (either AA or Anvil) and a L in our lightweight hoodies fits me perfectly.

Thanks, Kristy! I'm probably going to talk myself out of it...but both the Fat Unicorn and Sky Invaders are calling me, but there can be only one. If any.

May I humbly suggest Sky Invaders, then we can be twinsies! And so, if you ever see another woman wearing it you can point and call her an "aging drag queen" and she won't be offended at all!

What blanks are these printed on? AA or Anvil?

I guess they vary.
Check where they are manufactured - e.g. the purple robot T should be an AA.

Did the writers hear that my birthday was coming up and pick all the best designs for me to have? Are they going to give me the money I need to buy them all, too?

Wonderful taste woot writers! I love you guys! You can count me in for one purple AA retrobot for sure, and I'm going to give some serious thought to the Sky Invaders hoodie.

I have the shirt and love that design, plus it looks pretty sweet on a hoodie.

Kinda weird that this is a collection curated by writers but the original write-ups for the shirts are nowhere to be found.

Is "ratchet" good or bad?

"Yay Taco" - great for Taco Tuesdays and might get you a free burrito.

Out of curiosity, what happened to pullover hoodies? I can't remember seeing any up for a while now (besides randoms). Did I miss a notice of their demise?

We're our own harshest critics. Which takes a lot of work, considering how tough you guys are.

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

I'm pretty sure it's bad, but that's based on a thirdhand account from a coworker's teenage daughter.

It's bad. It's like saying that it's messed up or just not right.

Happy to see Veloceraptor & loving the history of how many people bought up to 8, when 3's the limit. Good one Woot!
If this was on AA I'd totally try to get 8 of them! :-)

I like the Fat Unicorn hoodie, I just wish it was a different color than the last lw hoodie I bought on Woot (Poe-etic)

Bummed that Bats and Yay Taco aren't on AA shirts. Can't buy em. I stopped buying shirts for awhile when you switched - still have a few I never wear. Glad you give the option now. Wish there was an option for these.

I got Suburban Blitzkrieg in a random order and it became my absolute favorite shirt of all time.

Then I had a massive bedbug invasion and abandoned my apartment and everything in it, including my clothes, which including a small stash of Woot shirts. I've vacillated between wanting a new one and thinking that if I do get one, the Lord (or whoever) will smite me with vermin. But still, it was my favorite. Memories. . .

My brain processed it as a misspelling of "wretched".

No don't do it! You need to buy Fat Unicorn! I always by a medium in the lightweight hoodies, btw.

I'm w/Amy. Love my Fat Unicorn heavyweight zip-up so much I bought the lightweight the moment I saw it. If I'm feeling rich (& remember) I'll probably get a second as a backup. (I stained my hw w/in a week or so. )

Size-wise: LW Hoodie = L, and for comparison, shirts AA WXL or MM, Anvil WM-WL. Search the community for "lightweight" and you'll get some other takes on fit.

Side sale hoodies tend to change with the seasons! Probably won't see non-random pullovers until fall, since they're a heavier weight. (Kind of like how there are zero tank tops offered in the fall/winter.)

I'm pretty excited about Retrobot Remix... Robots AND purple?! Cannot resist :D
