Hi, just wanted to share this t-shirt i found in a 400-Yen store in Harajuku, Tokyo.
Is there any connection to giantbomb.com? Probably.

I'm gonna say that it is not related

#3 Posted by Veektarius (4922 posts) -

My money's on coincidence - I can't see how the crew would have much appeal with a Japanese audience.

#4 Posted by Chaser324 (6651 posts) -

Probably unrelated. Definitely awesome.

@taketrasar: Probably completely unrelated, but you better have bought it.

I mean, probably, yeah. I don't see how it couldn't be a discarded Giant Bomb design, really.

Japanese t-shirts are for jerks.

would buy

Now replace that bomb with Bomby Bomberson and I would be so down!

#11 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4976 posts) -

That bomb does not have a visage on it. Debunk'd.

#12 Posted by mintyice (189 posts) -

I want that so much.

#13 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3882 posts) -

I think Bombey should just be a bomb with "BOMB" written on him instead.

Japan don't care

#15 Posted by Sammo21 (3370 posts) -

Yeah, I would say its unrelated, but still funny.

Uh oh, watch out Gamebomb.ru there's a new Sherif in town called Giant Bombu.jp.

The font and word placement make me think this is indeed a rip-off.

I would buy that!

#18 Posted by Codeacious (960 posts) -

Can't see that being related, but totally would buy regardless.

#19 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5808 posts) -

That's pretty neat, but I doubt it's related.

#20 Posted by EuanDewar (5033 posts) -

not related but the design is definitely more to my liking than anything I've ever seen on the GB store

#21 Posted by ghostyTrickster (318 posts) -

A 4 dollar shirt store? Man that sounds like the best.

#22 Posted by Buneroid (428 posts) -

I know it probably has nothing to do with the site but that just makes it seem even more fucking weird. Now it's just a shirt with a giant bomb on it and words letting you know that it is. Why Japan?

#23 Posted by Kaibar (83 posts) -

Fuck, I was JUST on vacation in Japan. I was even clothes shopping in Harajuku! Guess I'll have to visit again sometime.

CHEMTRAILS

If a russian can rip off the entire site, and gradually grow it into its bizarro own thing, anything is possible. I can imagine some Japanese t-shirt bootlegger browsing the internet for ideas for a new hot shirt, coming across Giant Bomb and thinking "that's a greatu idearu" and doing a shady Giant Bomb rip off t-shirt.

That's how I like to imagine it going, anyway.

But also - 400 Yen? That's next to nothing, right? You should bulk buy them from that store, and start your own bootlegging business selling them to Giant Bomb fans internationally for a handsome profit. You'll make a fortune. Although I guess unless they sell them in sumo sizes, only small people will be able to get one.

Fuck, I would buy that in a heartbeat for 400 yen.

#27 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

So you bought it, right?

You know a size medium there is probably a size small everywhere else. Japanese sizes don't correlate with oversea sizes. Trust me, I found out the hard way...

Hey whatever happened to the new support Ryan Davis shirt?

Due to some sort of production issue, I think the initial effort to make that shirt was cut off. No clue on the specifics...

still, that's 4 dollars give or take.

I've spent more than 4 dollars on something that forever lives in the closet.

Cool ok ... I know 99% of people on here would still buy it.
