As any child of the '80s will tell you, Transformers were amazing. We're not talking about Bay-formers here - we mean Generation One, the series that started it all. We mean toys which actually looked like real vehicles, and boasted just as much die-cast metal in their construction as cheap plastic. We mean "The Touch" and Optimus Prime dying (and mysteriously coming back), that kind of thing.
Another cool product of the '80s is of course the NES, and its Japanese sibling, the Famicom. Designer MOUNTAIN GRAPHICS has pulled these two amazing things together to create a truly stunning shirt, dubbed G.O.D. Fighter.
The T-Shirt features a Famicom console (with its Disk System attachment) morphed into a butt-kicking robot. It also features the unforgettable slogan "YOU MUST NEVER FORGET MIND IN EXPECTATION AND THE LOVE OF THOSE DAYS!" Quite.

And why do I want that sooo bad!?
That is pretty damn cool!
Always a pleasure to see Japanese-style robots like that. Looks great. However, in battle, my money is on Sega Genesis Megatron. If only there was a PC Engine Soundwave.

And with that, my respect for this site has grown 100 fold. Damien is now my new favourite NL reporter.
Only one thing plays in my head as I read this... "Autobots, it's time - for rolling out! RIGHT! OhmygawdthattruckisOptimuswithoutadoubt!" (Warning: strong language)
$30 + $19 delivery to the UK.
A shame, it's so pretty.
Well, it makes me swear less than Transformers: Mystery of Convoy on the Famicom!
Beast Wars FTW!
Seriously, it actually had decent writing. A show derived from a toy-based property had decent writing. It boggles the mind that I enjoy it despite not growing up with it.
Haha, this shirt is fantastic!
Also, those are some spoilers up there in the first paragraph
@Jamotello Thats one of the most amazing things ive ever seen
Okay, but what about actual transforming figurines?
Too bad there wasn't a Nintendo console represented.
I have both of those Transformers, I was really hoping the series would continue.... maybe a Game Gear version of Soundwave with a Laserbeak cartridge, or something.
I never expected Nintendo to jump on board though....
The body makes it look a lot like a gundam, specifically the ZZ gundam.
@DrPants1412 I'd say it's the arms, the plates on the back scream ZZ Gundam & through direct connection, AGE 2 Gundam.
@DrPants1412 Did a quick doodle, should be easy to tell which Gundam this is based on.
@DanteSolablood Love me some Shining Gundam!
