@fobwashed: Oh, sweet, I ordered 2. Hopefully enough people order for a re-print.

Thanks! =P

Dammit i came home too late last night to order :( maybe ill try anyway.

@ripelivejam: It looks like if 10 more orders go through it'll allow for another printing. SO KEEP ORDERING!!! :D

Made a reservation. Let's get another printing!

So yea. I guess enough ppl tried to order on a closed campaign that it's gonna auto relaunch or something. I have no idea what that means or how it works but I guess people will be able to place orders again sometime soon?

A message from the seller of:

RU GAMƎ BOMB!?

Hello Komrade XXX hailing from the XXX Land! I have decided for the sake of getting while the getting is good to end this campaign…. NOW! Actually, a while ago! Congratulations! You now (in 10 to 15 days) probably own a bootleg GAMEBOMB shirt! The only way this shit could have been more funky is if you downloaded it from a torrent site! To be honest, I expected to need two weeks to sell through the 50 shirts set as the goal. Once again, I have underestimated the internet’s appetite for stupid jokes =D Thank you all for your support! I love you all!

Fobwashed

PS. I have heard that shipping to countries outside of the US was astonishingly expensive. I’m sorry! >,<

And now the site has relaunched the campaign. I have lost control. The campaign is sentient.

Sweet, hope it makes it, er, again. I wants me shirt!!

For me this is also the first tangentially related GB apparel i've tried to acquire; not sure why specifically. Guess harmonix/lang/drake and friends know how to bring the hype, and i suppose it's a sweet design too ;)

Maybe there just wasn't anything dumb enough yet =P The shirts I've picked up are the original roller coaster members only shirt and the luchadeer one so far. I've also been into Vinnco but haven't taken the dive. At both PAX and TI4, I've seen plenty of people representing GB. It's always nice to be able to throw out a "duder" while at a game show =]

I was contacted by the guy that runs the actual Gamebomb.ru site. On his request I've stopped all sales but keep your hopes alive. We MAY end up doing some sort of official Gamebomb merch >,< In talks now.

Oh the irony. The site that used Giantbombs API to almost make a copy of the site is now complaining about infringement. This is just to good and dumb to be true :D

Dammit, should have ordered immediately. I really hope it goes through, it's too good of a design to die.

Just to say, from a Russian perspective, I actually visited the website years ago to see how it compared to the OG. Needless to say, the personalities weren't as appealing, but it seemed like they had a decent following with actual discussion. Videos were decent as well.

I thought something like this might happen. Did no one involved in the prank ever think that maybe the people running Gamebomb might take issue with the prank or anything related to it?

If we ordered one in the first batch do we still get them?

Just got mine- looks awesome! Although it does look to be a bit of a factory second (the image is at least an inch or two off center) Do you think it would be worth contacting tee-spring about?

Awesome! =D

As for contacting Teespring, that's your call. I got mine a few days back and everything is good. This picture does look slightly off. The star on top shouldn't be centered. I'm wondering if they did that on purpose or if this one tee just wasn't centered properly during the printing process. If you do contact TeeSpring, lemme know how things turn out! If you need, you can use the reference images in the OP to show how the thing should be positioned. I took those images off the campaign itself.

Freaking bummed out!! The post office misdelivered mine and all they said was "sorry its probably gone, you should contact the seller." Hopefully Teespring will be more helpful then USPS.

Oh ya, I got my shirt a few days ago btw. Interestingly it came the day after my GBeast shirt came in.

Very awesome. Note that it is wrinkled because I washed it and I just throw my shirts in a drawer.

It's an awesome shirt!

T-shirt now received (UK) and am now wearing it proudly under an open lab-coat in the genetic sequencing lab at work.

Our Ukranian lab technician was suspicious of the potential pro-Russia sentiment and is now amusingly confused by my explanation.

Sorry i didnt thank you earlier fobwashed; received mine a few days ago and it's terrific. The red actually looks a ton better in person than on the site preview so im happy for that. Also good to know that if someone out there recognizes my shirt i know theyre a REAL fan and we can discuss our dark profane rituals freely with each other >:)
