    Hi Pinside!

    I'm very proud to announce the first ever official Pinside t-shirt, just in time for Expo!

    With Pinside being nearly 12 years old, I cannot believe we didn't do this earlier! Although, plans to do an official Pinside t-shirt existed for a while but it wasn't until I got into contact with Ryan from Elephant Eater Comics that I found an artist who could visualize a design exactly like I was imagining it. Ryan is a comics artist and professor but also a Pinsider (and this guy is great to work with too!).

    Anyways, without further ado, here is the design:

    The first ever official Pinside t-shirt!

    This shirt is a representation of the Pinside community and all its different sides. After all, we're not just a random bunch of people from all over the world who happen to like pinball, are we?

    This is what the shirt will look like...

    Cool! How much?
    The cost for this beautiful 5-color, screen-printed piece of pinball history is only $18 shirt (*) + shipping

    Shipping within the US costs $6 and international shipping is $8. Or select "pickup" and grab your shirt at Expo 2014!

    Order your shirt now!
    Click here to order your shirt

    If the pre-order form somehow does not work for you, you can also Paypal the amount to coinbox@pinside.com but don't forget to leave all your details, shirt size etc. Thanks!

    Attention, female Pinsiders!
    Female fitted shirts are now also available! If you are a lady who doesn't fancy the straight-cut of the unisex shirts, these are for you. Female fitted shirts run in sizes S-XXL. Female fitted shirts will ONLY BE AVAILABLE VIA PRE-ORDER!!! Once the pre-order ends at the end of the day on Sunday (Sept 28th, 2014), we will not be printing additional female fitted shirts past the amount ordered.

    Now also 4XL and 5XL
    ...it turns out it is NOT too much of a premium. In fact, 4XL and 5XL will both remain the same price as 3XL! (Original shirt price +$4) Woo-hoo! Please keep in mind, 4XL and 5XL may be a slightly different color and quality of shirt (still 100% cotton, but not ring-spun...so not QUITE as soft).

    (*) Note:
    - Prices are in USD.
    - Please add $2 for XXL and $4 for XXXL (sorry, these shirts cost us more too)
    - Colours may differ slightly from this mockup.

    Final note: If you are going to be attending Pinball Expo or the Dutch Pinball Open 2014, you can select to pick up your shirt, and save on shipping costs. Time and place where to pick up your shirt will follow.

    Love it!

    #6 6 years ago

    Ryan is rapidly becoming the official pinball t-shirt design guy. That's not really a bad thing.

    #7 6 years ago

    Looks cool. Will you eventually make it with a button shirt?

    #9 6 years ago
    Quoted from scylla:

    Does it come with a shaker?

    If you are fat enough it will

    #10 6 years ago

    I can't wait to mod it !

    #11 6 years ago

    Looks nice. It does remind me a bit too much of a Bop-It(tm), and competitive pinball in general is quite under-represented. Add a person holding a trophy and saying "Win it!" or similar. Of course, it does seem to reflect the demographics here pretty well.

    OK, Robin, don't hate me, but I just have to say. I'm an old guy and not very "splashy." If you had one with just the Pinside logo without the rest of the artwork, I'd buy one. The artwork is nicely done, just not for me.

    There. I said it.

    Those have been around a while my friend. Front page of the website.

    Of course it's a woman saying 'Rate it'. Always judging.

    But that's you saying "Shop it!"

    How is there not a troll on this thing?

    I've had a simple Pinside shirt for a couple of years. You can still get those.

    Just ordered the new one as well.

    Quoted from DaveH:

    How is there not a troll on this thing?

    Ha! Too true. Should be a troll under the pin or something.

    #21 6 years ago

    Is the bash toy on a Pinside pin a dead bloody horse? Please, oh please tell me it is.

    Awesome!

    That's cool, Bryan. But you don't HAVE to wear it. Keep it NIB and sell it in 2020 for $200 on Ebay.

    Just a shirt with Pinside logo. Hmm, why didn't I think of that?

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Sorry...no pre-orders...and I'll wait for the LE...

    You might miss out, this shirt is gonna be so limited it will be gone before you... Ahhh, darn. Too late.

    Quoted from ectobar:

    Of course it's a woman saying 'Rate it'. Always judging.

    Wait till you see the earlier mockups that didn't make the cut

    Quoted from scylla:

    Does it come with a shaker?

    Yes, if you select international shipping it will.

    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    Poll not working...

    Ah, blast! Apparently you cannot have a poll with just one answer. There, I fixed it now.

    #24 6 years ago

    Is there one available without the person putting the topper on?

    #25 6 years ago
    Quoted from frolic:

    I want that simple logo shirt. Where is it available?

    #26 6 years ago
    Quoted from DaveH:

    FRAX is hiding just behind the machine.

    #30 6 years ago

    Are the ones moaning, bitching and complaining on the backside of the shirt?

    #31 6 years ago

    Just ordered mine to pick up at Expo. See you crazy silverballers there!

    #32 6 years ago

    need a "10k by xmas" and "WIWC" guy.

    #33 6 years ago
    Quoted from DaveH:

    How is there not a troll on this thing?

    Looks to me like the guy "discussing it" is yelling at the troll! Well done.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Feature idea:

    Maybe the back-side could have an all-white patch so Whysnow can sharpie - mod on there all the characters on there he wants!

    #35 6 years ago

    The LE shirts should be ones with collars like polo shirts.

    #36 6 years ago

    I'd vote for a little more ethnic diversity, but like it otherwise.

    You had me until no 4XL or 5XL... This fat man is required to be "crackless" in public at Pinball shows.

    That was a fail. Then again, not sure why I expected any less.

    Look there was already a release of original Pinside shirts. We cannot be having a second "VE" release, this will bring down the value and uniqueness of the original!

    #40 6 years ago

    JJP is the only one bringing any innovation to the t-shirt game these days.

    #41 6 years ago

    Love it. Great work as always, Ryan.

    #42 6 years ago

    Is the design on the front or back?

    #43 6 years ago
    Quoted from Miguel351:

    Is the design on the front or back?

    Unless they've invented a reverse v-neck it appears to be on the front. But hey it's Europe, we can't be sure.

    #44 6 years ago

    Ryan, I love your art! I'm so happy to see all these awesome t-shirts coming out!

    #45 6 years ago

    Someone on that shirt needs to being saying "LED it"

    #46 6 years ago

    Have to agree its a bit too busy for realtively older folks like me...but would love a simple official pinside tshirt. I did buy the ones mentioned above...but would like something even better. glws's

    I'm in , plan on wearing it home from Expo

    Fellow Pinsiders!

    First of all, I've just gotta say that I'm pretty darned excited that this day is here. Robin and I have been working on honing this design for the past couple months now, and it's been tough sitting on this information. I'm so glad we can finally share it with everyone!

    Quoted from robin:

    Although, plans to do an official Pinside t-shirt existed for a while but it wasn't until I got into contact with Ryan from Elephant Eater Comics that I found an artist who could visualize a design exactly like I was imagining it. Ryan is a comics artist and professor but also a Pinsider (and this guy is great to work with too!).

    When Robin contacted me about his idea/offer, I was elated. ...and the enjoyment never waned throughout the project. Robin was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. If you see this guy at Expo, treat him right, or for goodness sake, donate to Pinside. (Did you see that site update yesterday!??!)

    To everyone in this thread...

    ...sincerely, thank you for your overwhelming support and kind words. THIS DESIGN IS FOR YOU!!! Ha-ha!

    To everyone else, I've pretty much been giggling like a school girl reading through the rest of your comments. Keep 'em comin'!

    Dang-it, I love me some Pinside!
