Metal music evolved somewhere in the late ‘60s, a decade before Star Wars first blew nerds’ collective minds. But Star Wars takes place “a long time ago,” so it seemed like the movies should be able to accurately post “First!” But kids don’t need to get caught up in that kind of temporal argument to appreciate this fine piece of apparel.
It’s adorned with the two most ridiculous, least Metal (but actually made of metal) characters of the original trilogy: R2-D2 and C-3PO. Posed in classic robot style, they’re framed by brutal lightning and Iron Maiden inspired text all knitted together in vintage, distressed style. It’s a limited-edition tee from the folks who know how to make new threads that look aged to perfection, Junk Food Clothing. Your young music nerd will no doubt enjoy it, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better mash-up for a fan of sci-fi and all things old-school metal.
It’s a worth-it look for young fans which will separate them from the pack of latecomer classmates only obsessed with The Clone Wars or – eye roll – pod racing. Made in the USA, this shirt is sold in boys sizes extra small through extra large.
