Glad I’m Not Alone…

From a comment on Her Universe’s Facebook page:

And many of the selections are limited in stores. The ones in Wal-Mart and Target here are boring, faded “Old Trilogy” shirts – as if no one likes the prequel trilogy or the cartoon. I would love to have an Anakin shirt of his ‘Revenge of the Sith’ appearance, but there are none available here, and I haven’t gotten around to ordering one online. And having various female characters on shirts…not a big thing for stores, based on the shirts I’ve seen. The boys under 10 get Clone Wars shirts, but apparently adults are not supposed to like the animated series. *rolls eyes*

Not that I mind stuff from the first set of Star Wars movies but this “Let’s Ignore The Prequels” bit is what really bugs me. I’m glad I’m not the only fan who has noticed.

    Your Definitely NOT alone! Unfortunately, I notice this kind of thing all time. I can’t help but feel that Lucasfilm is alienating not just the adult fans of the PT but the younger ones too! We NEED more PT apparel!!!!!

    Hey, I got quoted! Woot!

    ;D

    I don’t mind the set of movies either, but I do wish we would see more prequel stuff. Before Episode III came out, there was a guy on the train with a “Revenge of the Sith” shirt. My immediate thought was “Wow, where did you get that?!” ‘Cause I sure hadn’t seen them at Wal-Mart. They might have been available at Spencer’s, but those stores were so far away, there was no way I could get to them easily. I looked through Amazon and there were a hundred and three old trilogy shirts and only one shirt with Jar Jar, which was the carbonite frozen Jar Jar from “The Force Unleashed”. I mean, I like the game, but that’s not a prequel shirt. And the ones at those custom created t-shirt sites are really uncreative. They just take a picture of the logo or a tiny picture of the character, in chibi mode often, and slap it on a t-shirt! (Often with noticeable boundaries; I could do that at home with my printer!) I was going to make a comment about Plo Koon on the page, but I left it off since the message was already getting pretty long. The man rocks, yet I have not seen a single Plo Koon shirt in stores. The EU is another thing that gets shafted. I mean, I know there are some people who hate the characters, but I really love some of the books and I really like Mara Jade. Where’s my Mara Jade shirt? o_O

    It’s gotten to the point where I’m going to make my own Plo Koon shirt, with a derogatory message aimed at prequel haters (Don’t worry, it’ll be PG rated! I’m just having some fun with them. ;D).
