Star Wars Day: T-Shirt Roundup

This December, Star Wars: Episode VII hits the theaters. Here at It Goes to 11, we’re damn excited! George Lucas did so much damage to the franchise over the last decade that it gave us pause to get stoked about this film. We’re quickly changing our tune however: the film trailers have blown everyone’s mind and this NSFW video of Kevin Smith describing what he saw on the Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens set has pretty much made us all here feel 14 years old again. It’s going to be epic. Let’s hope this film takes us back, back to when we were young and able to be blown away by the big screen.

There are some famous movie & TV weapons out there: the phaser from Star Trek, Indiana Jones’ whip, the pulse rifle from Aliens, Dirty Hairy’s .44 magnum, Ghostbusters proton packs. Yes, we can list probably 25 or 30 weapons from films that we hold dear. But did any other weapon inspire more than the Lightsaber? The sound is instantly recognizable and turned any kid with a stick into a Jedi master with a blazing sword.

Have you seen the Star Wars: Episode VII trailer #2? If you haven’t, the hell you waitin’ for? Go, check it out now. Once you have you’ll understand why, “Chewie… we’re home” makes us all misty-eyed. Probably the best sidekick you could have. Celebrate the Wookie with this t-shirt of the hairy companion.

Stephen Colbert tells a story of how he was a fan of Star Wars before anyone else. He was in the 8th grade and had just won a pair of advance screening tickets from a radio contest. Of course back in 1977, two weeks before the May 25 general release date, nobody had heard of Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia or Darth Vader. But Colbert had! He had seen the movie two weeks before anyone else. He goes on to describe how excited he felt, but none of his friends could relate to his experience… until two weeks later and the country was swept up in Star Wars mania! Inspired by an original movie poster, we hope our shirt will rekindle some of that childhood giddiness.

The Empire. A vicious collection of bad-asses that spans a Galaxy. They care only about advancing their goals for domination, supremacy, and for ruining your day if you were a Rebel. The symbolism behind the Imperial Crest makes for interesting reading. There are several permutations of the crest, changing when events warrant. For our shirt, we’ve chosen to go with the Empire-in-Exile design.

Are you into experimental combat spacecraft? Hell yeah you are! By the way, did you know that NASA has a whole list of sci-fi terms to use if you’re writing a book that’s based in outer space? Stuff like how to describe faster than light travel, and why it’s important to describe in appropriate detail damaged hulls? The TIE Advanced X1 (Bat) fighter is more than capable of creating damaged hulls against its enemies. See it in all its brutal effectiveness here.
