I saw this link to TFWire from Shortpacked!. I rarely listen to TFWire's podcast anymore but perhaps I should gather up the past few months someday and listen in again when I am concrete-free for a while.
Anyway, while I am not into wearing emblematics and and am pretty much a solid-colored shirt man but I have to admit, the thought of wearing adult Underoos kinda has a certain perverted and sick appeal to it.
Baby Jesus crys when I wear red so the Hot Rod and Prime shirts are out for me but I can see myself... and I *gulp* when I say this... buying a Soundwave and Tracks shirt.
Would I wear them?
Probably once or twice around the house or out at breakfast.
No doubt they'll be in the $18-$20 price range so that is usually more than I'll pay for any tshirt but who knows.
Oh. And speaking of TF-related shirts and fandom... if you are and adult Transformers fan... please ditch that Megatron Club shirt that came out a few years ago. It isn't that attractive, it is not a "formal" shirt because it has buttons, and it doesn't look good if you are 20 lbs over your ideal weight. It also goes against all subliminal fashion rules when you and 30 other guys are wearing at the same time at the same place.
Hmmm... maybe I'll create a fuck'd up character at Botcon and do a "What are you wearing?" red-carpet video kinda thing.
I am pretty much outside of TF fandom so I could be the weird asshole at the con making a general nuisance of himself with a video camera.
Cool! I can dig that!
The character definitely needs to be German-ish and speak with an accent of some sort. I'm thinking along the lines of Dieter from Sprockets with plenty of Sacha Baron Cohen's gay Brüno character. Man. That could really unsettle some people.
"Excooze me. That TakaraTomy packaging clashes with your obvious cheap Wal-Mart shoes. Do something about it!"
Oh. Yes. There's annoying potential here!!!
But I digress.
I like the Soundwave and Tracks shirts.
Hell. These four designs are at least pretty iconic. If you have any peripheral knowledge of G1 you'll know who they are.
Shockwave Underoos would be pretty obvious too but pretty boring. Same with Hound.
