Everyone’s seen the poster of the apes evolving into humans, and just about everyone’s seen the AT-AT in “The Empire Strikes Back.” One shirt combines both of those, showing the evolution of the AT-AT.
Anyone who’s either a Star Wars or biology geek will love this shirt. Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection is the linchpin of modern biology, and the AT-AT is part of the one of the best-known pieces of popular culture, so it’s a match made in Heaven.
At the left, we see the AT-AT we all know and love, walking on four legs, ready to get tripped up by Luke Skywalker. As we move to the right, we see its descendants, slowing becoming less four-legged, until we arrive on the right with a fully-upright AT-AT. AT-ATus Erectus?
James Lillis came up with the shirt’s design for RedBubble. He says he just wanted to see what the AT-AT would look like in 1 million year’s time. If you want one, you can buy the shirt for $25.56. Just be careful of any jealous friends flying around your legs to tie a cable around them.
If you like this, you should be sure not to miss the AT-AT cable organizer. Also, if there’s one thing geeks love more than Star Wars, it’s LEGO. Here’s an AT-AT made of LEGO guaranteed to make your geeky heart melt.
