Kind of insulting....

The jellyfish are perfect, but it's too simple for a threadless shirt. From the viewpoint of a customer, I buy shirts that are worth my money in either the category "neat idea/funny" or "pretty".
To go for the "pretty" category, try adding a subtle background that complements the quiet wavy theme. For example:
What if you made the shirt black with the current background color as a splotch in the middle with the jellyfish on it, and fades out to the black. Add some patches of light here and there along with some subtle undersea scenery.
Definitely a good idea for the flip flop contest.

This is just my artistic taste, but I think it looks more artsy than pretty. I like the top right corner with the black, purple, and white against the sun. If I had to turn this painting into a t-shirt (and if I knew anything about how to use photoshop!), I'd start with a black background, then add the purple and white (maybe some grey too?) against some fraction of the sun. It's a simpler, prettier design.

Definitely stay with the side-by-side, wraparound concept. That looks more exciting...like they're racing. This one is a little too busy, and kind of boring...like "Look! I have a picture of light cycles on my t-shirt!"
Maybe add a hint of flames to the beams. I always like seeing a realistic take on familiar animated designs.
Nice job on the cycles. I like the choppers too, but if you decide to stay with these, try to draw them in only one color (with black as the background) . The black lines don't fit the style. And try to tilt them forward to create a sense of motion. You could easily make them look much better than the choppers. Major improvement from the other ones though!

I like the idea, but I don't think the satellite is drawn skillfully enough. (No offense, of course, it's WAY better than I could do. If you could somehow make the lines straight (or smoothly rounded when they need to be), it might have a chance.
That's really the only thing wrong with it. This is the sort of drawing that you can't do freehand unless you're an expert. You'll need drafting materials (ruler, straightedge, compass, etc)
