New Shirts Added to Neopets Shop
  • Posted by Ummy
  • Posted on May 28, 2022, 10:44 am NST

A handful of new t-shirt designs have just been added to the official Neopets Shop. Get ready for Pride Month with some pride themed shirts, an island Kadoatie tank top perfect for summer, and a new personalized Altador Cup shirt for the upcoming Altador Cup XVII. Except for the Altador Cup shirt, each shirt design is available in 3 different colors.


Currently, only five teams are available for the Altador Cup shirt: Altador, Brightvale, Darigan Citadel, Kreludor, and Lost Desert. We imagine this was a listing error, and hopefully the remaining 13 teams will be added shortly.

these designs are actually pretty nice.

I wish we had UC faerie unis with that art though, that'd be sick.

Also, the options for Altador and Lost Desert are swapped for their Image Preview. I wanted to get an LD one, but now I'm nervous about which option they're give me. I'll just wait until they fix it haha
ummy - JN Staff, May 28, 2022 10:56 AM NST
If they offered the Island Kadoatie on a pink T-shirt I would've bought it immediately
mavegibson, May 28, 2022 11:00 AM NST
Conflicted emotions, here. On the one hand it's cool to see Pride themed Neopets merch, on the other hand it's pretty rich coming right on the heels of their absolute non-response to the queerphobia shown by their new besties Metaverse. It seems they're unwilling to take a true stand or even make a clear statement about that BS, but they're more than happy to cash in on the same people they marginalized by failing to take a stand.

If there was ever any chance of me buying a Neopets T it would be one of these, but I just feel so....
ummy - JN Staff, May 28, 2022 11:10 AM NST
^If it makes you feel better all indications is that all decisions involving NFTs were made from the top (JumpStart/NetDragon) and TNT is just kind of stuck dealing with it like the rest of us. TNT had repeatedly tried to distance themselves from the metaverse fiasco when it was going down. It's clear that TNT is fans of the brand just like the community, it's those up top who don't see things the same way.
mavegibson, May 28, 2022 11:16 AM NST
@ummy - I know it's unlikely that they have any say in NFT-related decisions, but the letter they posted was in their name, so they're accountable for what was said in it.

STOP MAKING THE KOUGRA ANGRY!!!

WE KOUGRAS ARE NOT ANGRY ALL THE TIME!!! THIS IS A POOR REPRESENTATION OF US!!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I don't like that they're using the Earth year and not the Neopian year on the AC Shirt.
animajaneofan99, May 28, 2022 12:26 PM NST
I never seen that purple Vandagyre artwork before.
roshchodesh, May 28, 2022 1:29 PM NST
Enough with the merchandise!!!!! You'll be buying stuff and 6th months later neopets will fold, and you'll look like a moron with that tee shirt on. Or like a traitor to the players who are begging the site to put resources into fixing the site!. You're paying to advertise their questionable product - they should pay you for walking around with the ir ad on your back.
What are we? Are we so weak? The hang a shiny on a stick and we intently forget about the chaos and shabbiness that it neopets? I'm sick of it.
@mavegibson who probably says it more elegantly that I, you are right.
roshchodesh, May 28, 2022 1:32 PM NST
typos about above. I apologize for not proofreading
roshchodesh, May 28, 2022 1:37 PM NST
Oh and one more thing. I would rather pay for a BLM or Pride or PEACE tshirt where the profits go to the charity.

Just once, just ONCE I would like a hoodie with a KD logo on the BACK. I don't like all these T-shirts with the logo on the front! Not a huge fan of the Pride shirt designs, either, sadly.
Not that it matters, they probably still don't ship to me anyway.
i_love_latin - JN Staff, May 28, 2022 2:56 PM NST
I actually really like the pride designs
But I totally agree that a hoodie with the AC shields on the back would be awesome
mavegibson, May 28, 2022 9:43 PM NST
@roshchodesh That is an excellent point. This is Pride merch for profit, not for the benefit of the queer community. We're better off buying merch from queer orgs, where the money goes to help our communities.
galifan, May 28, 2022 10:39 PM NST
If they sold printed N95 masks rather than T-shirts, I could wear them with my scrubs...
roshchodesh, May 28, 2022 10:59 PM NST
Yeah. Great. An N95 printed with, "Your neopets are dying".

20% of the proceeds from the Neopets Shop Pride collection is donated to the It Gets Better Project.

roshchodesh What you said.
apophis324, May 29, 2022 12:16 AM NST
Be proud, live loud? Why? Can't we just live a peaceful, quiet life? And while the message on these shirts is a good one, the world just doesn't agree. That is a VERY sad truth that SHOULD change.. though I doubt some Neopets tees are going to make that difference.

Happy American Pride month everyone
dzufiasta, May 29, 2022 2:39 AM NST
Why those shirts cannot all have black colour option? The pictures would all look awesome, and this is literally the only colour of tees I'm wearing.

And I love the flannel, would buy it~!
roshchodesh, May 29, 2022 3:49 AM NST
@joe
Thank you. I stand corrected.
But my cynicism compels me to question the motive - it's a lame attempt to deflect attention from their homophobic partnership.
neocoladude, May 29, 2022 7:40 AM NST
@mavegibson - You hit the nail on the head. Until JS themselves come out and admit that going with their initial Metaverse team was a terrible idea, and that they don't condone anything that the team did or said, any attempts to pander to the LGBT crowd have just as much merit as Disney doing the same - except with maybe even less sincerity, since a major Disney show (that just finished its 2nd season) DOES feature a lesbian relationship involving the protagonist. Neopia, on the other hand, has had exactly...0 real attempts at LGBT characters ever. @_@
neocoladude, May 29, 2022 7:43 AM NST
^ In response to my own statement above...why CAN'T they just rebuke them already? They aren't working with them anymore, so surely they have the power to say that much at least! After all, they have a completely new Metaverse team now, right? .....Right?
roshchodesh, May 29, 2022 8:07 AM NST
@neocoladude heartbreaking but beautifully said ๐ŸŒˆ
The voice of greed drowns out all others.
mavegibson, May 29, 2022 11:11 AM NST
@joe thanks for pointing that out. Still, if it's 20% of the profits made from the shirts going to a queer org, they're still 80% profiting when - as @neocoladude so eloquently pointed out - they've never made any attempts at real inclusion.

20% is tokenistic and paltry.
1jediboy, May 29, 2022 11:41 AM NST
So many of us are staying silent because theyโ€™re afraid that if we say something it will hurt our chances of ever getting a job with Neopets and revitalizing itโ€ฆ

NetDragon has been poisoning the well ever since they acquired Neopets and the only way to get Neopets back is if somebody who actually cares about not only the IP but the LOYAL HEARTED USERS buys the IP from NetDragon.

A few people asked about if Crowd-Funding is possible.

Is it? Iโ€™d definitely contribute!
roshchodesh, May 29, 2022 1:42 PM NST
They (NetDragon/JumpStart) should just give neopets away to someone who wants it. Painfully, PAINfully obvious they don't want it. It won't make them money they way they keep beating it into something it isn't and never will be. EVER.
solid_119, May 29, 2022 1:59 PM NST
what's with all the unreleased items that you're posting on the JNID ?
fluffymcgerbilpants, May 29, 2022 2:03 PM NST
If they didn't want Neopets, they would have pulled the plug on the site a long time ago. Why bother keeping it around if it's such a waste of resources for them, after all?

It's probably the IP they want, because isn't the Neopets IP still valuable?
verdego, May 29, 2022 2:13 PM NST
Yeeeeeeah... unless the brand as a whole is gonna address the real issues with what's going on in metaverse nonsense, this is just very hollow rainbow capitalism. I can donate four dollars directly to queer causes without going through a company that refuses to address it's own problems.
sprite_83_4, May 29, 2022 5:16 PM NST
@solid_119~ yes!! i was also wondering about all of the unreleased items that are newly listed!! is JN posting old items just for documentation or is neo doing something behind the scenes ?
ilovedachshunds, May 29, 2022 6:09 PM NST
My guess is that the items recently posted on the Item Database are old designs that never made it. Note this old style Koi art:

https://items.jellyneo.net/item/71001/
sprite_83_4, May 29, 2022 7:08 PM NST
@ilovedachshunds~ hm could be! some of the art looks rlly outdated and some of it looks like it couldโ€™ve been released today and no one would look twice. well i mean maybe they would tho cus neo barely releases NP items lol
on a side note, TNT pls release those two babaa furniture items!!
apophis324, May 30, 2022 12:25 AM NST
@people discussing the item database: Ooh, have they been datamining Neopets, digging for unreleased items that were programmed and received art, but nothing more than that? How lovely!
See, it just goes to show that JellyNeo would treat Neopets better! They don't have the people for it, nor the time and resources, but dang would they cherish the IP more...
sprite_83_4, May 30, 2022 3:58 AM NST
@apophis324~ data mining! thatโ€™s closer to the words i was looking for in my first comment haha
awโ€ฆyea ;( JN would take such good care of the current site! the fact that they do this for free is admirable, they should be paid employees at this point tbh. i wouldnโ€™t go on neo much if not for JN

roshchodesh, May 30, 2022 9:59 AM NST
I bet they would have made a ton of money if they designed a
#NoNeoNFTs T-Shirt! That would be so fun on so many levels!
apophis324, May 30, 2022 11:55 PM NST
@roshchodesh: Oooh, I would definitely buy a photo of such a t-shirt~! XD
roshchodesh, May 31, 2022 3:56 AM NST

kiriska, May 31, 2022 8:56 AM NST
Agree it's super weird for them to use "Altador Cup '22" instead of "Altador Cup XVII" if they found "Year 24" confusing or whatever.

@neocoladude, Shenkuu's AC team blurb this year reveals that its captain is lesbian/bisexual, but her girlfriend is an unnamed off-screen character, so while this is an okay first step, it's still pretty non-commital imo. Then again, aside from within canon characters and storylines, "relationships" between Neopets are still against the rules probably, so lol.
sentehisshou, May 31, 2022 10:25 AM NST
a fine corporate pride trifecta: homophobic company, no proceeds donated, and the merch is ugly!
parody_ham, May 31, 2022 3:28 PM NST
Aww, if the AC shirt had the Roman Numerals and was in a color other than white, I might be interested. Too easy to stain :<
