PT Daily Awesomes 9/11

Since I didn’t post yesterday, here are two “daily awesomes” from the PT.

I LOVE this bit from ROTS. In fact, fan site Galactic Binder named it as one of its bad*** SW moments. Yoda may be 900 years oldish but he is still one deadly mo-fo. The animators at ILM must have had a field day with having Yoda chuck his lightsaber like a spear into the heart of a clonetrooper, then before the clone could hit the ground in a heap, Yoda leaps on to his body and rips out the lightsaber. Brutal!

I forgot who made these tie-dye t-shirts back in the 1990s. Somehow the Grateful Dead/Phish world had a head-on collision with SW fandom right around 1997, spouting a whole bunch of (dare I say) loud t-shirts with big graphics and psychedelic blends of color. I remember these shirts were by 1990s standards expensive, around $25-35 apiece, but yours truly bought a few! The TPM ones where the last of the line but IMO, they were probably the coolest ones. I still have the above t-shirt but my favorite is the maroon-colored collage of Queen Amidala’s different costumes.

    Liquid Blue, I believe is the name. I’ve got a few. I’ve got a “Hilderbrandt Star Wars A New Hope” and a “ESB snow battle” collage. But my favorite two are my Tusken Raider collage and my TPM “Lightsaber Battle” T-shirts. Here is a link to a store that still have some.

    It’s where I got my TPM shirt. The first day I wore it I got three compliments on it this first place I went too. And there have been more since. Awesome shirts. I wish they made some for AOTC and ROTS. I really like the one you have pictured.

    One of my favorite scenes from Sith, Yoda kicking arse. I love the moment right before this shot when Yoda cuts off another Clone’s arm.

    Hey SideShow, this would make a great diorama!

    I remember seeing that A/P shirt! I only ever saw it the one time, though, and to this day I’m kicking myself for not getting it.

    I think my sister got the Amidala one – that *was* a pretty sweet shirt.

    ladyaeryn, I snagged that pic off eBay. You might be able to find more of those shirts there.
