outsmart originals

I’ve never heard of Carson Catlin so his influence and fame in the vinyl toy world is completely lost on me, but I do rather like this design anyway. It’s up for pre-order now for $20 at outsmART originals.


I usually quite like the pre-order tees from outsmART Originals but this one just isn’t working for me, it doesn’t show the amount of creativity that I’ve come to expect from them. It’s kind of disappointing to see that stereotyped ‘Asian’ font being used for the word ‘sumo’ on this design, especially since that font is meant to look Chinese (right?) and Sumo is a Japanese thing, it just seems a bit lazy. It’ll ship in late April and you can pre-order now in S-5XL for $20.


Not a submission but their press release says everything that I want to:

BearChamp Limited Edition Tee by JC Rivera

Based on JC Rivera’s numerous BearChamp customs and original creations, outsmART originals is proud to release this original design as part of our Designer Series Collection. Out of the ring and onto your back, this fighter will be screen printed on grey American Apparel Fine Jersey t-shirts and available for both men and women.

Shipping in Mid-April for only $20.00, reserve yours today and support this brute as he goes on to become the heavy weight champ of the world (or the woods)…

The problem with this being a pre-order is that I reckon this would be a great shirt when printed and the kind of thing that I’d like to wear, but just seeing it as this flat image makes it appeal less to me. It’s unavoidable for a company that releases everything as a pre-order, but it makes me wonder if they’re missing out on sales from people that want to see the print before committing.


To be completely frank, I don’t like these designs, they just don’t suit my personal taste, but I can see them being popular with some people, and I’d also be willing to bet that they’ll look a lot better when printed than in this mockup form.

Pre-order now for $20 at outsmART originals and be entered into a giveaway to win a customised 4 inch Munny by JFURY, whose work has been featured by KidRobot, so it’s safe to say he’s pretty good at it.


FRANK MYSTERIO x outsmART originals

Shipping March 20th are two colorful t-shirts from one of the more prolific designer toy customizers in Mexico, Frank Mysterio. With two completely different t-shirt designs, it is clear of the artist’s ability to morph into various forms. One focuses on the world of the masked wrestling warriors – LUCHA LIBRE. Screen printed on black ultra cotton tees and available for both men and women, Frank’s luchadore style has been seen on numerous custom designer toys of various platforms and now finally available in apparel form. Only $20.00 and shipping worldwide.

I really like the style of these designs, one of the best releases from outsmART to date I think.

Is it just me or does that skull seem to be a bit too tall? Hoping that Doug will chime in down in the comments since he is our resident skull expert.

Known for his incredibly detailed and sometimes strange custom art toys, Dave Webb has also created some amazing 2D art as well. Decorum, taken from an original design from 2007 is now being released as a discharged printed t-shirt for that classic vintage feel and look. Shipping in mid-February – this tee will be available for both men and women in sizes up to 5XL.

And as a bonus ( a tradition with outsmART originals) – with every preorder made – customers will be automatically entered for a chance to win an original custom 4? Munny from the artist! This original will be made exclusively for this giveaway and will surely make one lucky customer the envy of all. So reserve yours today!

There doesn’t seem to be any mention of when you can actually buy this, but it is on preorder now for $20 at outsmART Originals.
