The Armored Maiden tee design is for the Metroid fans that dig the awesomeness of the metal band Iron Maiden.
So instead of the band name "Iron Maiden" there is "Armored Maiden" which is making use of the actual definition of the term "Maiden". The concept is cool and much like the Galactic Empire tee and it makes a much better mash up or parody of Iron Maiden's The Trooper than say the Skeletor version (which isn't bad) or the Mars Attacks version.
As for the artwork, it is epic. It features Samus Aran instead of Eddie and the substituted flag has the breast sigil of Samus's Zero suit instead of the Union Jack. It has the "The Hunter" as the album name instead of the original "The Trooper" which is parodying. Other game elements replace the rest of the album cover such as her crashed ship in place of the canon and various enemies instead of the Grim Reaper in the bottom right corner. All mirroring their counterparts perfectly. The shading and coloring is masterfully done as is expected from Ninjaink.
This Armored Maiden tee will make a nice gift for the Nintendo and Metroid fans. Plus it is available in kid sizes so they won't miss out on this sci-fi and rock legend tribute.
This is a good gamer shirt that fits in anywhere such as Comic-Con or to rock concerts.
