Crazy sponsors lady.
Yeah, we rarely see anything that isn't generic Mario, platformers or Mario Kart either. We've actually managed to find a fair bit for Mario Kart though, over the years we've found all sorts from badges to bedsheets, clothing, tracks, and a big remote control Bowser. You can really tell that there's demand for other characters though, there's a toy shop by us that have really upped their Mario game recently on the figure lines, and it's always the rarer enemies and characters that go first and just leave the plain Marios. Most of the Mario shirts I have are from Primark, but they go in fits and starts so it's random if you find any. And yeah, I hope that isn't stolen art on those shirts because they are really nice designs. It's hard to know if they are though, as someone in my computer science class has had several pieces of her art stolen and put up on Red Bubble without her knowing.Heck yeah! There's a market out there for other characters. They should be well aware of it. And heck, it's not just the characters that are limited, I really want Mario Party shirts, Mario sports games shirts, DDR Mario Mix shirts. I've seen only basic Mario platforming (mostly retro stuff like NES, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, maybe one Odyssey shirt?) and the very, very occasional Mario Kart. I did saw some really neat Mario shirts at Box Lunch but everything else just seems to be way too small for me, too basic, or NES style.
I'd buy these sweet designs like these if they weren't just Red Bubble items, but actually found in whatever geek store I walk into.
Even Red Bubble isn't 100% giving me designs from other games but they still have a lot of tight stuff in there (but be warned, there's some really dumb/distastefull stuff in there too that'll make you look like an asshole with a poor sense of humor if you wear them, so, really, no point to buying those in the first place),
Only thing I'm hoping is that they're all original designs because I'd feel bad if they weren't and the person who made the art doesn't see that money.
But maybe I'm looking in the wrong place all together, but I just can't help feeling disappointed when I go into GameStop, Hot Topic, etc. and find nothing I really like.
