New Photos... and shirts!

Been fooling with the light tent more -- here are some of the latest shots. I think I'm starting to prefer the grey background over the white!


Godzilla requires no explanation, really.

Neo Shifters are kinda cool.

Neo Shifters are giant robots that fold up into balls. They're kinda neat, though I'm not sure I'd recommend them for kids -- unless, of course, the parent is willing to go through the lengthy and potentially headache-inducing assembly process. Putting them together isn't quite as involved as, say, Lego Daleks, but it's enough for me to not want to do it again unless I come across one of these things at a hefty discount.

Again with the Lego Daleks!

And speaking of those 150+ piece custom creations, here are the Lego Daleks with Dalek Sec and one of the shuttlecock brood. Apparently I was mistaken before, as the Legoleks are actually a little larger than those guys. One of these days I'm going to have to see if I can crowd my entire Dalek collection into the light tent -- but with the current count at 21 (3 shuttlecocks, 2 Legoleks, 1 shower gel, 5 of the 5" Character Options figs, and 10 paper), I'm not sure they all could fit. 😛

New Scary-Crayon shirts!

In other news, I've added some new shirts and other merchandise to the Scary-Crayon store -- these ones are based on the new site header and lack the decidedly not-family-friendly hockey mask-wearing crayon. I've also reduced prices by at least $1 on all items (base Cafepress prices are still kinda high, though, so that's not saying much). So if you were ever contemplating getting a SC shirt but didn't want to freak out your grandmother with mentions of homicidal cock-blocking, you may now do so. I'm looking forward to ordering one of the black tees myself! :mrgreen:

    Yeah, those prices are kinda high for a t-shirt, even in today's economy. How much of that do you get? I wonder if it would be cheaper to just print them on your own?

    Happy New Year, Wes!

    I'm not sure what I set for the exact prices of each item, but I get somewhere between $1 and $2 for every sale. However, I only get a check when I get $25 in my queue -- which I don't really expect to happen! -- so it basically ends up being a way of saving me a few bucks (or, more realistically, cutting down on shipping costs) whenever I order stuff from the store.

    It would probably be cheaper to print them on my own if I had the capabilities for doing so, but I don't have that technology at my disposal! At least judging from the ones I've gotten so far, the Cafepress shirts are pretty good quality (I'll let you know how the economy-priced one I ordered most recently turns out when it arrives), so it does make sense that they'd cost as much as they do when one considers that they're essentially single-run custom print jobs. It doesn't make things any easier on the consumer, though. 🙁
