As I made mention to on the Karakuri Cast, here’s some design ideas we had in mind for some T-shirts. Hope you like them!…
This one’s a pretty simple idea. Just some of the staples of Yugioh.
We alluded to this one earlier. It’s supposed to look all “old timey” and propaganda-ish, I think it came out really cool.
EDIT: This is the second version of this image. I’ve fiddled with the colors and added an outline to make Card Trooper more visible.
This one’s probably my favorite. It just ended up looking really nice and being clever.
Last is a super basic design that actually has our name on it with an adorable Key Mace!
So tell us what you think! Input is greatly appreciated.
The first, second, and last ones are the better ones.
You should make a Mokey Mokey shirt too, but other than that, good job.
I planned to make a Mokey Mokey one, I just haven’t finished yet. Thanks for the input 🙂
I put some ideas on the topic in the forum. I love the first 2. I would by some.
You should put headphones on key mace.
You’re absolutely right!
Number 2 is pretty awesome. One question: What’s number 3 supposed to be based on or represent? Also, I second the Mokey-Mokey.
Rule Sharks are people who try to call you on rulings a lot and are known for yelling “judge!”.
They usually are trying to get you a game loss by finding some rule you violated.
the support our troops one is awesome. Definitely the best of the bunch
Trooper is the best, but the orange and yellow kinda makes him harder to see.
I’ll work on that, I’ll hopefully update it with one that’s easier to see later this week.
Consider army green or navy blue.
The first design. And one word: lower case helvetica.
Also, Helvetica ftw.
Are you going to make the “All Holo’d Out” t-shirt I’d buy that one?
I’ll probably do another set of four that I’ll post later. That’s one of the other ideas. I just need the time to make it.
The second one is awesome. It looks just vague enough that it could be any number of robots from a variety of sci-fi films and tv series but YuGiOh players will recognize it immediately. Plus, like y’all mentioned on the podcast, there’s potential for variants with Troop Dragon, Vortex Trooper, Fire Trooper, Shock Troops of the Ice Barrier, or even Goblin (Elite) Attack Force.
Be careful with that fourth one. It might be a little too easily recognizable as Key Mace. You wouldn’t want to run afoul of Konami’s licensing restrictions. Just the lawyer induced headache would probably be bad enough.
Ya, I’ve been thinking about the copyright issues. I’ve got a couple of other ideas that involved specific monsters and I’m not sure we can sell them; like an Obelisk Obey shirt parody of those other Obey shirts.
I wanna see that design! And as far as copyright goes, can you just “give” a shirt to people who donate a set amount? Would that get around copyright?
That sounds like cheating…
But, I’ll definitely showcase it with the next few, although if we do get a shop up and running, we probably wont sell it because it uses Obelisk, (whom we don’t own) a variation of the picture of Obelisk on the actual card (which we don’t own) and a clear resemblance to the actual Obey product line. (which we also don’t own)
Parody clause. North Face vs South Butt. Do it anyway.
Interesting… well, here comes OBEYlisk Shirt.
Pot of DEWality
Hahaha, of course.
