Which Ones Should I Get?

Post by TurbomanKnight » Wed Nov 17, 2004 12:22 am

Hello fellow KR fans. I need help deciding which KR shirts I should get. I was wondering if I can get some opinions. I plan to buy 2 out of three.

Why not pick all three? Is it that much of a difference? If so, then my choices would be the first and the second. The voice modulator looks nice but is not accurate in terms of proportion and color.

i prefer the black t shirt with kitt on it if only for the detail. the light grey one doesn't do much for me, it's just an outline of the car.

so i say the first one.

but at the end of the day, it's your decision.

I have #1 myself. I wouldn't mind getting #3, however. Wished they showed the back of #3. Wonder what they mean by control panel (dash perhaps?).

I sort of only like #1.

It's hard to tell, but in shirt #2 it looks like KITT has the mirror-image hood on him; in other words, it's printed backwards. There were a lot of publicity photos published like that and it drove me crazy.

I like the concept of #3, I just don't like the sketchy look to it. I'd prefer something that looked less like a drawing.

You can't go wrong though. If I saw someone wearing any of those shirts on the street, I'd give them a "nice shirt" compliment.

#1) Looks like someones conversion (3 foglamps on each side) 8)

#2) reversed image of KITT :?

#3) Horrid looking turd of a voicebox :shock:

If I absolutely HAD to pick ONE, it would have to be #1.

The other two just don't cut the mustard for me.......

I think they are refering to the lights on the sides of the Voice bargraphs.
The whole voicebox in general.

There is nothing on the back of the shirt. The ad says:

"Voicebox and control panel on BLACK 100% cotton shirt"

If it was a real picture capture or proper rendition, I would say yeah,

BUT NO................... :cry:

My bad. Though it said control panel on back, not black.

Never said I could read very well :wink:

At of those three picked, I would say the first one. But it is the most common of those shirts. 2, even with the corrected KITT I probably wouldn't pick cause I'm not a big fan of that distorted text.

My favorite of their shirts is this one:

I like the realistic quality of the items on it. I just actually wish they had a shirt with just the scanner alone, and no text at all. Would be a thing that only those who knew would get, which I would find interesting. Unfortunately they have to have the KR logo for copyright. :)

neps - I noticed something about that shirt in your link. It says "I'll be right there. Michael." Instead of "I'll be right there, Michael." - Notice it is supposed to be a comma and not a period as punctuation before the name. :)

BTW, now that election season is over, are you still going to ask people to Vote? ;) Actually, might it have been a subliminal message that perhaps this thread could also have had an attached poll? ;)

When you start a topic, isn't there like an option at the bottom to add a poll? Might not show up after you start the topic though, come to think of it. I haven't done a poll before but ran phpBB boards before. I just keep forgetting how that goes. :)

If you have this shirt, you should definately put some LEDs where the scanner is with a circuit to make it go back and forth.
