The range: Founders edition. This very special limited edition run of t-shirts are the final spec from the manufacturer and we are giving our fans the chance to own a piece of Player history. Each tee is the result of almost 7 years of development from scratch being custom made from the bottom up. The founder editions each come with a signed certificate of authenticity from the artist and are instant collectors items. With less than 10 available of each design, and some designs and features never to be repeated in their present form – we wanted our loyal fans who have stuck with us on this journey to own a unique part of the Player history.
The design: Bowser is the arch nemesis and serial captor of the Mushroom Kingdom. The lava heat and fireballs of Bowser’s iconic boss level provides the imagery for this design. Bowser here is reimagined as a BBQ pit owner, with Roasted Goomba and BBQ mushroom on the menu. Along with the other range, there is the retro Famicom swoosh, and detail relating to the spikes on the shell of Bowser. The kanji reads “Bowser” then “Roasted Goomba” and “BBQ Mushroom”.
On the back you have the flag of Japan, which is a reference to the games country of origin.
The tee: As with all Player Clothing garments, there is an embroidered neck detail, and hem logo along with being 100% cotton and made with 200 GSM weight fabric to offer you the highest quality. The iconic player logo is included in the garment label – and the founders editions come with a certificate of authenticity from the artist and chief designer Mike.

Interesting facts: When translated from Japanese, Bowser (or King Koopa as he is also known), translates to “Cool Bully King”.
