? A GAotW four-parter?! Madness! First up, a shirt that made me chuckle ruefully. It’s $10 at TeeFury, today only.

? Given the nerd girl love for Tom Hiddleston’s Loki on nerdgirlernet, I assume this shirt featuring an adorable pile of Lokis would be up somebody’s alley. It’s one of the winners of We Love Fine’s Marvel villains design-a-tee contest; you can see all the winners (including Hiddleston’s personal pick!) here; this particular shirt is $25 here.

? Bustin’ makes Dave of Dave’s Geeky Jerseys feel good! You can order this new jersey between now and September 5th; it’s $95, but remember, all the designs are actually embroidered on, and the materials are excellent. You can pre-order it here.

? Last but not least, it’s the truest shirt in Westeros! It’s from Chico Rei, which is a Brazilian shirt company, which means the shirt costs R$46 (about $23) and you’ll have a hell of a time trying to order it if you don’t read Portuguese. You can give it a shot here, though. Thanks to Andre M. for the tip!

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
