  1. Have pre ordered mine, this is the link metropolis1927.com or search google for it, you do have to pay upfront though :( shame.

  2. Yeah, it's a shame they want the money 3 months up front, but if you want the t-shirt then you have to do it. I've just pre-ordered mine from Play which is a little cheaper, and you pay for it when they send it to you.

    Can't wait to see this!

  3. I can't find a payment link on metropolis1927.com. How can I order it?!

  4. Hi Goatrider,

    Try this link, I checked it and it still works. Don't think you can get the tee any longer. Alternatively, you can order it from play. Hope this helps.
