Super7 is proud to announce three new additions to our series of Star Wars Designer T-Shirts!  Created in conjunction with Mighty Fine and officially licensed from our good friends at Lucasfilm, each of these shirts will make their debut at San Diego Comic Con.   Designed by and available exclusively from Super7 booth #4729.

Imagine an 80s coin-op arcade game taking place in the ASTEROID field from STAR WARS.   Crisp vector graphics of the Millennium Falcon, Star Destroyer, Space Slugs, and more stylized ships from The Empire Strikes Back!  Sharp grey printing on an athletic-cut black t-shirt.









Trudging through the woods with bowcaster in hand, the famous PATTERSON BIGFOOT photo was not of a sasquatch….but of a WOOKIEE!    This iconic black & white image of Chewbacca is printed on an athletic-cut white t-shirt.







As if it wasn’t difficult enough to escape from the Death Star, imagine how much more mind-bending the battle station would have been if designed by the legendary artist MC Escher. Taking cues from Escher’s Relativity,  Luke, Obi-Wan, Han and the rest of the gang find themselves upside down when trying to getaway from Darth Vader and his Imperial goons.   Each character has been exquisitely rendered in an homage to the fine linework of Escher, and is overflowing with fun details and Star Wars universe easter eggs.    You must see this black & white print (on a black t-shirt) in person to truly appreciate the hard work that has gone into creating this design!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
