Well, it seems that hounding Largo and me does at times result in action. I think if i got one more email that ran something like 'please oh please make that 3V1L L33t shirt!!!" i was gonna scream. ^_^ so, quite literally brought to you by popular demand, Largo's '3V1L L33t' shirt is now available. Just don't go sloppin around in sewers with it, ok? :P
Actually, if you notice, Megatokyo now has it's own store over at CafePress. You no longer have to go to three or four different stores to get MT swag - they were nice enough to give us our own cart system - so no more worries about having to pay shipping and handling twice if you want multiple designs. The other benefit to the store design is that it will let us offer a better variety of stuff in the near future.
For starters, the plan is to have two groups of 'designs' - art shirts which feature full color CG works of characters and whatnot (which is basically what the first four designs represent) and a new category Character Wear for shirts like '3V1L L33t' and perhaps some other designs sported by the characters themselves.
We will also be offering, finally, some black t-shirt designs in the near future, as well as hats (these things are kinda neat - cafepress sent me a few samples. I'm probably the only one in the country with a 'megatokyo' hat right now) as well as some other gift ideas. Largo seems to be excited about MT boxer shorts. I'm hanging out for the posters. Either way, the store gives us a single location for you to get MT stuff - which is the best way to support Megatokyo, plus you at least get something to wear in exchange for your dollars.
I know there was a price increase - i apologize for that. Cafepress raised prices across the board, but us and other stores like ours the increase was pretty minimal. Buying shirts contributes to largo's beer fund and my 'new computer' fund, so in some ways it could be considered a good cause.
Hopefully today's comic isn't too confusing. There is a fine line between taking one comic to do what would normally take a page or two - you build a lot into the visuals to try to provide more information so that the story can chug along. ^_^
Things at least start to get interesting from here on out...
