Dizzy Merchandise

Post by Dizzy » Thu Feb 18, 2010 1:47 pm

Hi All.
Its been a while since I last posted a proper update.
I would like to post a link to you all about some 'new' Dizzy Merchandise over at Retro GT.

http://www.retrogt.com/retro-t-shirts/Dizzy-80.cfm

See what you think?
Perhaps we should look into doing some similar hand crafted goodies for the fans. :v2_dizzy_walkman:

Let me know what you think and perhaps we would open our own store with eggcellent Dizzy goodies

A rather interesting image there, sort of like a new symbol for Dizzy in a way. :say_yes:

Also a piece of the description on that page I found a bit amusing :p

These antics where due largely to the fact that the Oliver Twins had previously developed a program called 'Panda (PhillipANDAndrew) Sprites' which enabled them to rotate sprites by any degree.

I remember that old Yolkfolk.com T-shirt you wore at that Classic Gaming Expo almost 6 years ago.

Our own Dizzy Store sounds like a good plan, as long as I don't have to dress up as Shopkeep :p

I used to have a red Dizzy sports bag that I used to take my swimming gear to school. I was pretty rad, you see.

Why not? Its just surprising that merchandising hasn't been explored before.

It could be a good revenue raiser for this site and might even go some way for paying for those upgrades...

Loving it! Really like the fact it's a little abstract and thus more symbolic.

Didn't read this thread was just thinking last night about making a dizzy t-shirt.

the RetroGT stuff doesn't stand up to repeated washing.

Finally got around to ordering one. Hope they don't degrade too quickly :/
