Title: Re-Prints of old Shirts!
Post by: *necro* on July 23, 2009, 06:27:55 am
Well, I gues that I am not the only person who would love to get a t-shirt with MELISSA design or FATAL PORTRAIT coverartwork...also a doublesided DON´T BREAK THE OATH shirt would be cool - an if there would be an officail one withe cover of the MLP it would be great. Soheres my question to King - why don´t you reprint these old stuff? I mean, you can get some "old" stuff as bootlegs shirts on ebay these days, but official old motives on official shirts would be much cooler, right?

I'm sure the Them-shirt has been bootlegged a few times, so you might have got one of those. The official ones looks very good.

FP would be cool, why not In the Shadows or Time. We already have "9", Graveyard would be unexpected, so would Voodoo, but that ones a bit "cluttered" for a shirt-way too many details in the art, but if there's a will...it could be done

I´ve got an offrcial Graveyard shirt from the Germany-tour, where MF supported KD. Bought in in Hamburg... But I really like to get a Fatal Portriat shirt.
A lot of band reprint old shirts - so why KD does not? I mean...you can find a lot of bootlegs at ebay, but I would like to get real ones...

Well, I know someone who is seeking it in size XL, so maybe he will buy it...

I really wish King would release some album t-shirts without the tour dates on the back...
that's what's put me off the 9 tee for so long having USA 1999 with all the dates down the back to me, sucks cause I wasn't there.

Hehe, are they trying to mock King himself? He hated that logo when it came out in all different colors.  :)

It would be a great idea to re-print old t-shirts because if you really want to get your hands on a cool one from the 80's today you have to pay alot!

I want allover print t´s and long sleeves with prints inspired by individual songs and a big KD or MF-logo on them. Album covers anf tour t´s are okay but this would be something new for King. As far as album cover t-shirts I think Melissa art cover on the front and MF-logo on the sleeves would look pretty cool, or DBTO allover print on a t-shirt. But I´m sure an artist could come up with extremely cool shirts with themes from songs such as The Oath or Poltergeist.

frankly I'm against this, Iron Maiden do this a lot nowadays, printing goofy tie-dyes or 'vintage' prints in different colours and all that kind of jazz.... they've also started creating t-shirts for specific songs done by artists and they always come out really half-assed (see: Rime Of The Ancient Mariner for example), same goes for the horrible event shirts.  Far be it from me to beat down an idea before it even shows it's head but I'd much rather see some high quality prints of the amazing album artwork that's already out before people start getting TOO creative with ideas for shirts.  Hopefully when the King Diamond fanclub gets up and running we'll all get our wish.  :king:

I think it all depends on how it's done. I'm no expert on the subject but it seems Maiden´s shirts often have a comic touch to them, and quantity over quality seems to be the rule, and that's not what I want at all. The Eye and Them shirts are fine, but they've been around for a while now so why not try something new? As long as it's done right and approved by King I'm sure it would turn out stunning.

Ugh I hate those all over print shirts.  It was a bad concept to begin with and now those stupid Affliction shirts that douchebags wear has made them seem even worse.  I'll take my vintage looking black and white Mercyful Fate shirts any day.
