Sweet!

Any guess as to when / if the Shadowrun T-shirt will hit the online store?  I could use a new one for GMing at the local cons. 

While I like the thirtieth anniversary shirt, unless someone is in on the joke it's not the best for the general gaming public sometimes.

No official word on the shirt, but I'm willing to bet it won't be until after GenCon.
