The Armored Maiden tee design features a Metroid parody of Iron Maiden's The Trooper with Samus Aran as the Trooper.

TheĀ 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.

Iron Maiden The Trooper Album Cover

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.

Bottom Line

The products and retailer TeePublic are high quality with a better price than most of the other Print On Demand services ($14.00 – $20.00 range for Tees, $38.00 – 40.00 for Crewnecks, $45.00 – 47.00 for Hoodies). Most of the designs can be found elsewhere but the color and print quality may be weak in comparison. The brand of blanks that they use are for the Men’s Alstyle, for the Women’s Next Level and for the Pullovers American Apparel. They are extremely soft and very comfortable. It is nice to have fabric color options as each design usually has a few choices to choose from, so that is a major plus. There are plenty of sizes and styles as well. The garments are TAGLESS which is awesome because tags are itchy and annoying. As for the printing method, they use the Digital Print or Direct To Garment (DTG) technique. They have excellent ink coverage, which is where they shine compared to their competition. The ink colors are good but could be bolder which is the only area where one of their competitors out does them. So the print method gets a 5 star rating, especially when taking the price into consideration. We feel that this Armored Maiden Tee is a worthy purchase and therefore should not result in any buyer’s remorse.
