15 Star Wars Themed Shirts That We Have a Good Feeling About

Posted by Mongo

   For 41 years, Star Wars has been a shrine to nerdom.  With the original trilogy, the oft derided prequel trilogy, and the new trilogy set to be tentatively released for Christmas 2019, there is plenty of material to geek out over.  That doesn't even include the spin off "A Star Wars Story" movies and cartoons over the past few years.  Still through all that, I am a child of the originals at heart but have enjoyed sharing the newest movies with my daughter. 

   So, here, is an aggregation of some of the coolest designs I could find out there.  Some, of course, are mine, but mostly, other independent artists have created these awesome designs.  You can find these and more listed on my AngryMongo Star Wars Store at TeePublic.

1. Hans by Warbucks360
A play on the popular skateboarding shoe brand, Vans, this one from Warbucks 360 is perfect for when you make the Kessel Run or just do a sick Ollie.



The old ways are the best ways and 80sTees provides licensed apparel that takes you back to the original look and feel of the artwork for the first movie. I had bed sheets in this art style, when I was a kid...

And in college...

              


This is one of my own, hipster style logos for Rogue Squadron's search team out of Echo Base.  Based on the Planet Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back.



Based on the song Rebel Rebel, by the late David Bowie, this one features A New Hope era Princess Leia with the Ziggy Stardust lightning bolt makeup.




You may be too young to know good music, but this one is parody of the eponymous album from Led Zeppelin but with a Star Destroyer.  Get it...




Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to be released this year and it could be a huge hit or miss depending on how well it tells the backstory of everyone's favorite stuck up scruffy looking nerf herder.  But never tell him the odds of how well it will do.  This one has a classic rock feel and look with a classic line from the old smuggler.

One of the best subplots to Empire Strikes Back was the introduction of Boba Fett as canon as well as the rest of the Bounty Hunters who even got their own novels in the EU.  Is it sad that I can name every one of their scum from memory?  4-LOM, IG-88, Bossk, Boba Fett, Dengar, and Zuckuss...


             

I love everything about this design; the simple clean look, the colors, the minimalism, the angles.  Simple and perfect.


9. Rebel by djkopet
Based on the movie drive, this mashup depicts Han Solo walking towards the Millennium Falcon with Mos Eisley in the distance.


A retro looking ad for Tosche Station. It's based on that throwaway line where Luke whined about needing to go there to get power converters instead of doing his chores.


11. Visit Tatooine bye Rene Flores at FloresArt
Vintage look in the style of the Southwest US, perhaps Arizona or Southern California circa 1968-1976 era.  It's simple and has that Space Craze feel from the 70s.
 
 12. Kessel Run Sticker by AngryMongo
OK, it's not a shirt, but it can be.  It just happens to work better as a sticker on the back bumper of your Millennium Falcon, or Dad mobile.  The popular marathon 26.2 or 13.1 stickers mashed up with the less than 12 parsecs line from Han Solo in A New Hope.
13. A Hero Self Portrait by UrsulaLopez
Technically, you could say this is more of a tribute Harrison Ford than Han Solo, but it still features Han, creating a self portrait of him as Deckard from Blade Runner, while seeing Indiana Jones in the mirror in a nod to the famous Norman Rockwell's Triple Self-Portrait painting.

Parody of Blue Moon Brewery with the classic line from A New Hope. Because it's too big to be a space station?

Borrowing a plot point from Rogue One, this last one posits that there are some kick ass waves to be had... at least at one time, on the planet Scarif thanks to the Death Star.  Also comes in an alternate Orangish/Red color scheme as well.


11 Stranger Things Shirts That Will Flip You Upside Down

Posted by Mongo

   Stranger Things is a bonafide phenomenon. Who knew that a web based television series aired over Netflix could capture the world?

   Borrowing heavily from the 80s masters of horror and sci-fi, like Dean Koontz, Stephen Spielberg, James Cameron, and Steven King, the series about a small town in Indiana and its residents delves greatly into pop culture, music, and themes that us Gen X'ers grew up with.

   And now, you can sport your own tees inspired by the hit show with these eleven awesome designs. Feel free to check them out and see more at the AngryMongo Merch Store at TeePublic.

This throwback design features the hungry Demogorgon mashed up with the old school Adidas logo.

2. Palace Arcade (replica) by AngyMongo
One of the new locations in Season 2 was the Palace Arcade which involved a subplot concerning the hi score on Dig Dug.

What happens when you mix a Gorillaz album cover with the main characters of Stranger Things? Nostalgiaz...

Communication is key to finding Will in the Upside Down. And one of the things the kids rely on is old school ham radios.

Back in the early 80s has D&D was considered evil and demonic. Something only nerds and devil worshippers played.  Today, it's a well received style of gaming and this tee mashes up the old school rule books with themes from the series.https://www.teepublic.com/t-shirt/636971-darkness-and-demogorgons?ref_id=2081&ref_type=aff&store_id=1944 

One of the breakout stars of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown, got to go on her own self discovery trek in Season 2 and briefly fell in with some not-so-law-abiding citizens who gave her a makeover. This design taps into the 80s color scheme and slang to bring you this Bitchin tee!

Hopper is one of my favorite characters and David Harbour plays him perfectly.  His zen attitude about mornings coupled with the D&D theme of the show inspired me to do this one.

This design is another fantastic use of color and negative space to create a window into the realm of the normal world while trapped in the Upside Down.
https://www.teepublic.com/t-shirt/1970365-upside-down?ref_id=2081&ref_type=aff&store_id=1944
I love this design. It's simple and plays the duality of the Normal World and Upside Down very well.  It shows a lot of creativity while only using three colors.

This design is straight up 80s screen print nostalgia.  You can almost smell the old style iron on method of making shirts back then.  It's got everything; faded look, Cooper Std Typeface, and those lines scream "Wear me with 80s sport shorts!"
https://www.teepublic.com/t-shirt/2048704-hawkins-middle-school-av-club?ref_id=2081&ref_type=aff&store_id=1944
What looks like a standard 80s style athletic number shirt holds so much more.  There's great use of the duality of the Normal World and The Upside Down contained in very little space along with great use of shading between two colors, Gold and Silver.

The Walking Dead Inspired Tees

Posted by Mongo

Season 7 started out with a huge shocker.  We were left hanging with the prospect of losing a major character to Negan's bat, Lucille, at the end of season 6, but we couldn't have foreseen what was going to transpire.  

But you can be seen in these TWD inspired tees from my store on TeePublic.  So, check em out!  All tees are from $20 and with TeePublic, you never know when they'll be on sale from $14.
