Minecraft Merch Store is Up and Running
By on March 24th, 2011

So when Notch was talking about a Minecraft franchise, he absolutely was not kidding. The first step of this franchise is to start your own merchandise store as opposed to letting other people mint money with your game’s designs. (Kidding everybody loves the diverse collection of Minecraft tees). Mojang Specifications have opened up their merch store on J!NX and are already taking orders on the different kinds of t-shirts up for order.

The best part about this entire merch store? The t-shirts (especially this one) is in tune with pop culture on the internet (albeit slightly late); seeing a Three Wolf t-shirt parodied by a Three Creeper t-shirt is hilarious. For those that did not understand that the Three Wolf Moon t-shirt is a pretty normal t-shirt featuring three wolves howling at the moon. What is hilarious is that it attracted ironic reviews on Amazon such as:-

Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women

Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

This review by Brian Govern sparked off an insider joke that not only resulted in hilarious Amazon reviews, but also great sales for the t-shirt since it became an internet phenomenon. A Creeper is the name given to the most irritating monster on Minecraft that follows you and when it comes near you, it hisses like a dynamite fuse and explodes killing you in the process.

So which t-shirt will you be buying today, intrepid miner?
