Star Wars Travel Vintage Poster T-Shirts

kessel run tours 570x570 SR Geek Picks: S.H.I.E.L.D. Sucks At Everything, Batsuit Fan Design and MoreSteve Thomas has long held a love of the illustrations seen in vintage poster art. As he says on his website bio:

“My love for vintage poster, propaganda and product art from the early 20th century and an interest in retro-futuristic art from the mid-20th has led me to create some cool poster art. I mean, who doesn’t want to travel the solar system or join the fight against the villains of 1980s arcade games?” 

It’s in this vein that Steve has designed a set of six gorgeous travel art-inspired designs from a galaxy far, far away. Celebrate your favorite Star Wars locations with one of these new styles: bask under the glow of the Alderaan moon, or float through a Bespin sunset!  Hit the slopes on Hoth, and cruise the forests of Endor. Adventure awaits, scoundrels!

Each available for $25 at WeLoveFine.com.

  1. SHIELD Sucks was funny. “Try not to think about how Nazis helped us save New York vs Aliens.” Although… The fact that only one or two people were against the nuke, kind of makes sense now. In fact, so much about how quick they decided to “nuke” makes sense.

  2. The “fan designed” bat suit is absolutely horrible.

    • It would’ve worked if he was designing for Image comics Shawdowhawk

    • Speaking of DC, they announced their actor who’s gonna be playing Cyborg in the MOS sequel.

      Also, Feige said they have Thanos cast but will save that announcement for later (SDCC maybe).

  3. I like the idea of the nostalgia critic but I dont think he does it that well.

    • Yeah, all he does is yell hysterically, which gets old and annyoing REALLY fast. I stopped watching his stuff a long time ago.

      But that “SHIELD sucks at everything” video is genious, not that is has anything to do with the Nostalgia Critic… :D

  4. Batman Beyond-er

  5. That fan-designed Batman suit would be a perfect BatWING (Lucas Fox) suit for the cinematic universe.

  6. Batsuit redesign sucks, It abandons everything that makes Batman who he is.

    • The Batman as is theoratically can’t even go toe to toe with Black Widow or Hawkeye. Forget Superman and or any upcoming villains DC is going to throw at Justice League…. so for them to be able to get me to suspend my belief they’d have to give him an armor such as this one.

      • Can’t go toe to toe with Black Widow or Hawkeye?
        What are you smoking and where can I get some?

        • Hes right though. The cinematic universe Batman is not as skilled a fighter as the comics Batman. Black Widow and Hawkeye from the cinematic universe are better and more powerful fighters than Christian Bale’s Batman.

          • @ Law
            As a cinematic universe character fir DC
            Batman doesn’t exist yet. Christian Bale’s Batman is part of a seperate entity tied to
            the Christopher Nolan trilogy.. with that said
            Hawkeye nor Black Widow perform anything remotely hand to hand against a chitauri in The Avengers. Black Widow does more hand to hand combat in Iron Man 2 than n The Avengers.
            We all complained about Hawkeye being mishandled for that reason..

  7. KKAgents of Shields doesn’t suck
    U guys don’t know nothing.

  8. The fan designed Batsuit looks like a Guyver suit. Meh. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bio_Booster_Armor_Guyver

    The SHIELD sucks video was classic.

  9. Kryptonian Batman look like ultron

  10. @Michael B
    Ur crazy to think them two are on the same
    level as The Bat.. even crazier to think there
    above it.. forget standalone films they’ve yet to
    hav their own animated films or series..
