GB Zaxxon shirt design

Here's one I've been meaning to do for a while. There was some event or another (probably more than one) where Jeff was wearing a Zaxxon tee. I've loved the Zaxxon logo ever since I was a kid, and I figured it was about time I blended Giant Bomb and Sega's isometric shooter into some sort of t-shirt homage.

I'd started it a while ago and abandoned it because it wasn't working the way I wanted it to. But today, for whatever reason, I got it into my noggin that I should probably finish it off. A bit of nipping, tucking, primping and poking later and it's done! Obviously it's not exactly the same as the Zaxxon logo, but more inspired by it and other games of my childhood. Actually, I've only just noticed how similar the Zaxxon and Xevious logos are now that I'm thinking about it.

Those logos scare me. I sucked at games that looked like that.

Reminds me of the old days in the arcade circa 1978-1983. Arcade jocks ruled the world back then. I bet they don't play shit now. I showed their ass.

Those are pretty damn amazing, I hope they commissioned those for some sweet shirts.

This is why GB needs a full on store.

you should put the avatar subscriber's "medallion" below it and only make it available to subscribers.

You take that shit over to Busted Tees!

Awesome!

Posted by LordAndrew

I would pay upwards of $2,000.00 for this shirt.

Posted by ChrisTaran

Awesome shirt. Would very much love to own one! 
If GB won't open a store, I think you should open your own  buzz_clik!

Posted by Emilio

looks pretty awesome. Good job, dude.

I love it, but I can't seem to put my finger down as to what the typeface resembles... is it Xevious? Or Gradius? Or am I completely off? 
 
[edit] Ah, didn't notice Xevious was mentioned in the OP.

Posted by KuribosShoe

zaxxon is wack, son.  but xevious is straight devious.
 
I don't know what I'm doing.  That's a sweet logo.

Nice one. Looks great, man! :D
 
In regards to old game logos, have you seen the one for Tyrian? It says Tyrian forwards and backwards; which is crazy.
