(I'd love to see this on black - the design would pop more and it would tie the whole "space" element into the design)

Oh man i hate star wars and any reference to it but this is just so damn brilliant because it's so covert and obvious at the same time.

And oh yeah, this would've sold at least 10,000 pieces on woot and at least $20,000 in your pocket! haha. So make sure it wins Bestee of the Month and Bestee of the year lol

ummm the image is quite similar but maybe lets hear from buko first ebfore jumping to conclusions?

Swordsaint

please make this happen.

FRICKINAWESOME
FRICKINAWESOME profile pic Alumni

The 3po boombox I could see more than one person doing that as a concept, and there are a bunch of differences between Buko's and that 3d real-world rendering of it...although there are LOTS of similarities as well, but I would think those similarities came from logical placements of translating 3po to a boombox style? Anyway the addition of the r2d2 headphones puts this one over the top, but maybe Enkel saw that piece a while back and unconsciously reinterpreted it? Hmmm.

mark722

you got the droids bass ackwards Evan ; )

ndstillie
ndstillie profile pic Alumni

with a track record like buko's are people really suggesting that he copied this? crazy talk.
Awesome work.

wytrab8
wytrab8 profile pic Alumni

^agreed. Don't think he copied it, just happened to come up with the same concept. Collective consciousness.

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

where did anyone say he copied it....?

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

There are too many similarities for me. The sliders are a massive give-away.

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

It can happen though I guess. Benefit of the doubt to Buko.

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

The sliders are completely identical in shape to be honest. :/

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

ha, yeah. oops :0

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

Yeah I know that. Just amazing similarities in the concept and execution, imo - but I know it does happen. I don't think Enkel would have ripped it off. Maybe he'd seen it before and it was buried in his subconscious? :o Maybe it is just one those coincidences.

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

Ha! The artist himself. Crazy.

the110
the110 profile pic Alumni

Oh man called out by the original artist.

buko
buko profile pic Artist

Sorry everyone i feel really bad and i already contacted the artist to apologize. It wansn't my intention to rip off, i got the idea from somewhere and i thought it could look cool on shirt. But when i saw that image i realized that I've seen it before and probably got the idea from it but it was totally unconsciously. I never used it as direct reference and if i had it and wanted to rip off i probably would have changed the sliders to avoid similarities and hide the truth, but it was totally coincidence. I'm really sorry that this happened and i know that can happen to anybody but i feel so bad about it.

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

Don't feel bad, man. It's happened to us all :P It's good to come out and acknowledge it.

Print and share money with artist?

FRICKINAWESOME on Mar 24 '10 The 3po boombox I could see more than one person doing that as a concept, and there are a bunch of differences between Buko's and that 3d real-world rendering of it...although there are LOTS of similarities as well, but I would think those similarities came from logical placements of translating 3po to a boombox style?

None of this bothers me....EXCEPT the fact that FA is confusing R2D2 with C3PO.

Naolito
Naolito profile pic Alumni

I think that it's isn't anything bad in what you've done Buko.
Everyday many designs use known characters, antique art or films references, and anything happens.
This time, he has used a funny image on the internet, adding more funny stuff to it with an awesome result.

I don't think that you have to apologize buko, the only thing that maybe you could do when you submited is to post the image that inspired you.

I hope that it prints anyway, You did a incredible work here and this isn't different to any comon spoof that we see everyday at threadless.

Naolito

One more thing, Share the money???

So, if this prints:


50% to leonardo da vinci?

briancook
briancook profile pic Alumni

Seriously...how does a pop reference god like FA not keep his droids straight? Major disappointment.

the110
the110 profile pic Alumni

I'm pretty sure this is still going to print!

brentendo

how does FA not know his C3pos from his R2D2s?

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

More power to you buko, the c3p0 headphones as an addition are enough to make this unique. Hope it prints for you cos I'll still buy one!

Naolito on Apr 06 '10 One more thing, Share the money???
So, if this prints:
50% to leonardo da vinci?


I was just trying to come up with a compromise.
But I think the situation you described is slightly different. The arist who did renaissance rocks is spoofing da vinci, buko is not spoofing mcmullen. Buko is spoofing star wars. I am not implying he share the money with George Lucas.

But Mcmullen was already spoofing star wars, and buko, as he explained, probably got that idea from mcmullen, which makes it seem more like a collab, which a lot of people here on threadless already do, and often share the money. Just a thought.

No matter what, I still think it should print and I'm probably going to buy two of them.

igo2cairo
igo2cairo profile pic Alumni

It's OK Buko, this kind of thing happens to the best of us and it wasn't intentional. It's still an amazing tee design with your own unique twist, so if the original artist agrees with it I'd call it a collab and split it 50/50, that way you both win. :)

make this shirt already!!!!
