Weapons of Mass Imagination
When you were a kid I’m sure you had toys that you imagined were real. The water balloon that was your grenade… the pop gun you used to take out zombies and save the world… the ray gun that protected your dog from aliens. We present to you, “Weapons of Mass Imagination”. This collaboration is between Mindtrance and Flying Mouse. Mindtrance came up with the idea, and Flying Mouse did the artwork, placement and colors. This works especially good as a kid’s shirt, and on crème or banana.
I don't think that kids are allowed to wear shirts with weapons on them anymore :( But I really like your idea!
yes, i'd like it better in the center
I'm glad you all like the concept and the art (Thanks to Flying Mouse for the artwork). He posted the center placement, it looks good!
ha love it! but did you really have a hunting knife as a toy when you were a kid? because i did too......
a plastic one yea :) It came with some crazy army kit, binoculars, a plastic rambo knife and a grenade.
I like it off to the side, I guess that's just me. I dig it.
I definitely like it off to the side, I guess that's just me. I dig it.
We had tossed around the idea of replacing the knife with something else like a stick that looks like a sword. If it gets picked we may end up going that route for certain.
maybe if flying mouse is up to it he can replace it with a long cardboard poster tube and post a updated version :)
Update for the CARDBOARD SWORD :)
flying mouse you are the man bro, thanks :)
urban: no, but it could be.
Fun & cute! The funky bubble letters really enhance that child-like persona, too.
Like this a lot. A lot a lot.
A wooden or cardboard sword instead of the plastic knife would be better.
When I was three, my Mum made me a He-Man outfit - it rocked. It had fur boots and a fake-leather bandolier thing and everything. I used to run around the house shouting and swinging my sword around.
5$ - for the memories!
Okay folks, here is two options for knife replacement.
One or Two.
I think two looks more like what I used to use as a sword. :) Thank you for the quick changes Flying Mouse!
I don't think that kids are allowed to wear shirts with weapons on them anymore :(
if that's true, i'm moving.
how about a wooden sword instead of the cardboard tube
We tossed around that idea too, but I think that it doesn't leave much to the imagination compared to a cardboard tube.
I disgaree. Wooden sword fits the design much better than the tube. I used tubes as swords, but none of the other weapons require imagination to know what they do, so the sword shouldnt either. Its a good design none the less.
I see your point Ste7en, I just think the tube is more young kid friendly like say 8 and under. :)
wheres the kiddie a-bomb?
AHH! Center!! THis is so awesome
The placement is better to the side than the centre, a little bit different.
lol...i like how the knife makes a sound like a basketball going through the hoop!
btw, nice collab guys! I love collabs....yeay!
It's a well known fact that the origin of the knife in fact comes from the basketball. Swish was something they came up with together one night after heavy drinking, and playing texas hold`em.
I love the off centre placement!I also love the idea - it takes me back to my days of hiding water balloons under my bed to protect me from burglars...! $5
I hope so too, thanks!
Only 4 more days left!
do you prefer center placement?
1 more day left!
Sweetness! I think either placement would do. $5.
This is great, mindtrance. Thumbs up!
thanks everyone for the comments and score :)
i'm gonna sabotage this!
I wish :)
cough should I resub this with the cardboard tube version? cough
