I think it was a mashup of Salvador Dali and Star Wars

Not my bag either, they have had some really cool SW shirts though over the last 18 months (Calvin and Hobbes as Solo and Chewie!)...I'll just keep posting them as they come up in case someone is interested



I gotta say, this one pisses me off.  While I'm sure they are paying Lucasfilm a fee, I'm pretty sure that Bill Watterson isn't getting any.

It's a parody.  They don't have to pay anybody.

From the comments section for that shirt:

    KyleMittskus said: With how opposed Bill Watterson is to allowing his art to be parodied at all, I am disappointed in this shirt. Not that I don't like it, but I can't get behind it when the originating artist is so openly opposed to such things.



Hi Kyle

When this was first released a couple of months back I did have reservations about whether or not I was disrespecting the original artist and his characters. A lot of people who I spoke to put my mind at ease, assuring me that this fell well into the realm of parody to not be a problem. Reading up on Bill Watterson I never read that he was opposed to people parodying his work, but he was always against merchandising the actual characters Calvin and Hobbes and other people misusing his characters (eg Calvin peeing on the car logos). This however was never meant to be Calvin and Hobbes but rather Chewie and Han drawn in Bill Watterson's style. Yes there are echoes of Calvin and Hobbes in the design but that's necessary for the MashedPotato to work.

I appreciate your comment though.

If you like Star Wars and you like Calvin and Hobbes then you should like this design. It wasn't created with any malicious intent so why have a problem with it? As well as being a parody it also a homage, even more than a parody in my opinion. Both IP's are treated with respect and not misused in anyway.

Who is the guy to the far left (with the Sword) and the little guy to the right of Optimus? Is that just a generic Lego figure?

Thanks for letting me know, because I almost posted this one, too:



Same place also has several other SW designs featuring vintage Kenner figures but it isn't Tee Fury so I can't really talk about it here.

Anyway, my bad.

I don't know what I did to deserve such treatment from you, but keep it up, mister, and I may just start up my own message board and take a bunch of people from Jedi Defender with me.
