Do I root for the Turtles or for Mario? Decisions, decisions.

In for two, one for me and one for my Grandson. I voted for it in the derby and was hoping it would go on sale today. And It is my 100th woot!

I wonder if Mario's going to throw Michaelangelo at Shredder or Bowser...

I second this, and it's the difference between a purchase and no purchase. The background adds to the design!

It definitely is better with the background, but it did not prevent me from purchasing.

Agreed .. got one for me and one for my son. But, would definitely be a happy camper if the lack of background is just a little SNAFU and they get it printed with the background.

For sure.

As a rookie here, I don't know if this is the case, but it may have been too many colors (different shades) with the background.

If it was something with the colors, the design would/should have been rejected in the derby and would have needed to be resubmitted to the derby for contention. What most likely happened, is, the background got left out of the print ready file the artist sent to woot. Not sure I've seen something this noticeably different from what people voted on and what is being printed (Spelling and word changes have been done before). Still isn't a huge difference, but it's definitely a more basic design without the background.

Also, the design seems really high on the shirt as is.

What's up woot? This is not the design people voted for. Where's the rest of the artwork?

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

Just to echo what everyone else is saying... where's the background that was in the derby submission? This is a no-buy without that :/

Now I'll have the TMNT and Super Mario Bros Theme songs battling it out in my head all day but I can cross off one gift early from my Christmas list.

I actually think it makes for a cleaner/clearer design without the background… that being said, I will hover over the buy button until the question of the missing background is answered.

(Seriously though, awesome mashup, it made me laugh out loud this morning!)

Because they raised the price from $10 to $12 and at the time claimed it was in order to keep using blank Tees that were made in the US (by American Apparel). I was onboard with that and paid the $12 without complaint but a few short months later they switched to Anvil blanks which are made in Honduras and are of a lesser quality (and have sizing issues) than American Apparel. It felt like a bait and switch, given the original explanation for the higher price.

I completely agree. Donatello just looks like he's out of shape, instead of looking up at a cloud.

Maybe he's after Luigi for giving him & everyone else those death stares.

To be fair, calling it "feeling like bait and switch" is pretty extreme. Also, there's a continuous and ongoing thread about the AA vs Anvil, so we could all just go there now instead of seemingly having this discussion on every t-shirt thread. Woot has done several AA vs Anvil designs ($14 if you want AA and $12 if you want Anvil - last I remember it was a week of designs with the option) and, although that makes everyone happy, it seems there must not be enough marketing push to go back to AA. For some of us whose breasts never fit into any size of AA, I'm just fine with Anvil and don't have any of people's reported "troubles."

/Shoot, now I just brought the AA vs Anvil thread into this thread. I hate myself, I really do.

Was seriously hoping for an answer from woot on this question. Why no update, woot! ?
