Are they still out there and Are you one of the Lucky lucky people who has one?

Even when I wasn't collecting VB anymore (2004-2013) I always had my eyes out for one of these puppies. And Believe it or not I always wanted it as a garment FIRST and a VB collectable SECOND; that's why in 2009 I had to pass up an XL that sold for around $80 because I'm a LARGE. Then I failed in 2010 to get an ACTUAL Large that sold for over $100 (I had quit a Job at that point so It was best not to spend over that on a t-shirt).

But, has anyone seen any recently? And does anyone else actually think its super cool aesthetically? or do you think its totally uggs?

I sure do, and I think it is super cool from every perspective that one might look at it.

The only way I would consider giving this one up is if I happened to get one with more vibrant colors.

If someone wanted one to WEAR, it occurs to me it would be very easy to duplicate. They make an "iron-transfer-film" that can be copied on, or even printed on; that would easily accommodate the front logo and back images. A can of spray color for the black (even basic cheap spray PAINT will yield a very acceptable effect), and craft stores like Hobby Lobby sells paint pens that can replicate the line figures. Some of those paints are luminescent (glow-in-the-dark).

But imagine using THIS to form the line-drawings:

Some provision would have to be made for removing the EL wire for washing (velcro would lend itself well to the project); but I for one would love to see a shirt lighting up in say, a movie theater, or other dark place...

The front isn't bad, but the back is a little much. If you wanted a similar aesthetic, maybe you could find a company on Aliexpress that would sew up some red/blue t-shirts. Then you'd just have to use vb-fan's paint idea, or have some made at a screen-printing place.

I would personally like to see one with the background designs, but no logos at all. It would be like a secret sign between VB fans

Keith Apicary (Nathan) DID use that stuff for his VB shirt. Hey... Is he on this site? I haven't seen him since I lived in LA.

He is but he only shows up once or twice a year. Usually because he announces something or tells us that he bought something cool.
