Animated flames on moving Optimus Prime T-shirts? Check out these sweet TRANSFORMERS shirts!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Moriarty forwarded me this press release about Transformers shirts and I was like, "What the hell is this? Why would I want to post an advertisement for movie tie-in apparel?" Then I saw the gifs attached. Okay, so I'm a geek. Moving shirts get my geek juices flowing. Sue me. Although, I do have embarrassing memories of being forced to wear a Rudolph shirt at Christmas every year that had a light-up nose, connected to a very uncomfortably placed battery pack somewhere around the chest area of the shirt... But these are pretty neat, and for you talkbackers there's even an animated flames shirt, just for you. Here's the release and the pics will follow!

This summer, the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons comes to Earth and you can show which side you’re on with Transformers the Movie light-up t-shirts from Thumbs Up! Set to hit the shops a few weeks before the film’s launch in July, these new t-shirts feature logos from the Transformers film, including the iconic Autobot and Decepticon insignias, as well as characters like heroic Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, and the evil Megatron, head of the Decepticons. Transformers t-shirts have been popular ever since the cartoon debuted back in the 1980s, but now a light-up panel brings these new t-shirts to illuminated life! A small, lightweight battery pack powers five different flashing sequences to make sure that these t-shirts are sure to attract attention! Big summer movie t-shirts are always popular, but there’s never been a range like this before! Since we hit the 21st century, we’re still all wondering where our jetpacks are, but these t-shirts are a true innovation from Thumbs Up which bring wearable interactive electronic style together with iconic logos and characters. They’re not just awesome, they’re a sign that the future is here!

    Now all someone has to do is add NIPPLES ON BATMAN to the back of the shirt. Otherwise, why pay money for the privilege of being a walking billboard if you can't subvert the corporate propaganda machine? But jeez, that Megatron design... vomit.

    CAN CAUSE CANCER

    by SylarTheCylon

    The electricity generated by these kind of things can generate a small increase of temperature that penetrates, sometimes 2 cms deep, into your body. The elevated temperature can alter cellular metabolic activity and can cause an increase in errors during dna transcription. Errors that can induce cancer, usually cutaneous. Nah, just kidding. But i wouldn't buy the obligatory animated underwear if you get what i mean.

  • May 15, 2007, 8:10 p.m. CST

    Living on Earth causes cancer, good luck.

    by Smashing

    The electronics and battery pack usually slip off for washing, meaning you can slap them on better clothes.

    These things last about 1 week, then go out

    by ShiniGamiSan

    I was at the Hong Kong Trade Fair, and was given two made by the company that makes these (Lame-o "Ruby Tuesday logo on it), and it started acting up when I turned it on after a couple of times showing them to people. Had a battery box that held I think 2 AA batteries, and a switch to change how it sequenced when it lit, but letters were going out right away. I just threw them away. I'd rather see them use that new lensticular material they have, that you can put up to 30 frames on in full color. Now those were cool, no batteries, and nothing to short out.

    I am so sick of the complainers. These t-shirts are cool. A first if you will for any movie or shirt for that matter. Yet here we are with a bunch of knuckleheads complaining about the shirts saying how lame they are. Fuck that! Some of these shirts are great and will sell by the truck load. <BR> <BR> So tell me those who are complaining what original shirt idea do you have? What would you do different that would be original and catch the eye to make people go "HOLY SHIT"? <BR> <BR> Kudos to the marketing dept for these shirts. What a "bright" idea. Fuck off to those who will complain about anything related to this movie because of Bay. It's going to be the best popcorn flick of the summer next POTC3.

    the bet they missed

    by Napoleon Park

    has nothing to do with the movie or the property, just the name, but hey should have made a "Megatron Rocks" shirt design with a stamped metal logo mitt umlauts over the vowels, heavy metal music style. Fans of '80s cartoons and '80s music would get it. (Actually I'd be amazed if no one already did that in the last twenty years, but if they have I am not aware of it.) <p> the Optimus Prime flames design is freekken-high-larious, though. It's like they did a shirt just for the critics. Though why they thought they'd buy or wear them is anyone's guess.

  • May 16, 2007, 3:46 a.m. CST

    Wow...guaranteed to keep you virgin...

    Because you really want a neon sign on your chest that states that: <p> A) You are a thirty-year-old man who play with toys.<p> B) You can use your shirt as a nightlight for masturbation.<p> C) You can transform Optimus Prime, but you are clueless about unhooking a bra.<p> D) The shiny, glowy shirt hopefully takes attention away from your small penis.<p>

    OR...If you are a woman who wears the shirt:

    by Bones

    A) Hey Nerds, my breasts are both light-up and 3D!<p> B) Wait! Stop looking at me like Sharks after seal meat!<p> C) This was the wrong shirt to wear when walking alone<p> D) I can't find the off switch and am running out of places to hide<p>

    THESE WILL KILL YOU

    by SylarTheCylon

    Because the current travelling across your chest can interfere with pacemakers. So if you have one of those, i wouldn't use these shirts. Also, Kurt Russel wasn't smiling about these t-shirts las time i checked, so i think the issue is settled.

    What if it starts to rain, and your TINO-shirt gets wet and you get electrocuted? How fucking awesomne would that be? Or how about you get breat cancer from the electromagnetic field? Can women safely wear these?

    Washable? Sure!

    by RatBat

    Just to reply to ricarleite, they're easy to wash - the battery pack unclips and the light-up bit is sealed, so you can handwash them. There's more info on them at: http://tinyurl.com/yol9bq

    I'm not buying this, but if...

    by Abominable Snowcone

    ...they sold full-body pajamas with microcircuitry that made you look like someone from TRON, I'd get that for the hell of it and wear it to movies, concerts, sporting events and funerals. <p> Do the Transformer shirts come with copies of a book like "How to Talk to Girls?" Or do they just skip that and give you a plastic vagina instead?

    Civilization phase III--humanity progresses

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Finally, after thousands of years, so many wars, so much death from diseases we didn't understand, finally, after so much hard work and research, after putting aside our differences as human beings and putting down our weapons, we can reach a mutual understanding and take all the best that medicine and science have to offer, and combine that technology with our heightened level of human sympathy, to elevate our singular condition on the earth together, finally, glowing Transformer teeshirts.

    The glow-shirt crop circle convention

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Get all the emo kids who buy a shirt to gather in some remote rural field some summer night, and they could lie on their backs together and beam messages into space, so that Prime and company know where to land. Hell, maybe some of them could work at an airport and be runway landing lights.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Did I miss him in the talkback? Has he given up his quest to acheive... something... by posting Damn you Michael Bay all the time? If so, I have to say I'm saddened, because I really thought he was building toward something...<p>I will also be saddened if I see anyone over the age of twelve wearing one of these colossal nerd beacons. It will be a heavy sadness, and I may need to find a quiet place where I can weep secretly.

    Nice idea but who's going to wear it?

    by SID 8.0

    The Barricade one is pretty cool for the police motto alone. Reminds me of Triumph at the Star Wars Ep. 1 premiere. He asked a guy in a Vader suit which one of these buttons calls your mother to come pick you up?

    That's right, Michael Bay fans. Nothing says "I know how to give pleasure to a beautiful woman in bed" like a blinking robot tee shirt. Order yours now, put it on, and soon you won't be able to get rid of the smell of fish in your house.
