Jack Darby’s mom, June, initially thinks that her son’s story about sentient intergalactic machines here to defend Earth is straight out of Science Fiction, and that he hangs out with a Science Fiction Club. But soon, the truth is revealed, and she gets to meet this “club”, which is really a group of autonomous robotic organisms from the planet Cybertron, also known as Autobots, led by one named Optimus Prime.
So even though it was initially dismissed as an excuse or pure fiction, I thought creating an actual shirt based on the concept would be interesting and fun. So I put the information on a shirt (with the establishment year of 2010 to coincide with the premiere of Transformers Prime), and the Autobot logo being only partially visible, since it’s supposed to be secret, but would theoretically be a decent enough cover for anyone that didn’t know any better. And so here is that design in all it’s glory in the traditional red Autobot motif.
