Stop the presses! Read all about it! Hello space cadets! Calling all Ratchet & Clank fans (or “Ratchet & Clankers” as the community is unofficially known as)! According to Insert Coin Clothing’s previous tweets (and official blog posts), it’s been hinting at Ratchet & Clank making a comeback to the store for the first time in a few years.
To people that are new to the Insert Coin Clothing online store, keep in mind and most importantly, customers are able to pay via PayPal, credit card or debit card and any piece of clothing or merchandise you choose are eligible for worldwide shipping. As with almost everything else on the internet, there is obviously worldwide or national shipping costs to bear in mind. Be aware the prices vary from one piece of merchandise to another. Keep an eye out, seeing as there will be times when the store launches a sale or organises a competition and sometimes, there will be discounts but it depends on how much merchandise you bought.
In regards to the designs, they seemed to be based on the Ratchet & Clank Future series due to the aforesaid designs based on the concept art and Ratchet & Clank (2016)/Ratchet & Clank (PS4).
However, this isn’t the first time Ratchet & Clank made an appearance on the store. The first crop of designs made their first appearance to coincide with the release of Ratchet & Clank (PS4)/Ratchet & Clank (2016) and the Ratchet & Clank movie.
My main, major critique is the prices are expensive by t-shirt price standards and pieces of clothing price standards. The prices can sting, are hard-to-swallow, are sometimes unjustifiable and they may put off a lot of customers from purchasing any piece of clothing that are themed after video game franchises, video game consoles and video game companies. I still don’t understand why the merchandise are still pricey to this day.
This brings me to the next critique. The fabric threads or strings occasionally come off from the aforementioned pieces of clothing as a result of being constantly washed or being overworn/overused. Not to mention, some creases are left on some clothes throughout the years.
Despite that, the clothes are comfortable to wear indoors and outdoors.
This isn’t really a critique but more of a suggestion. I may be saying this on behalf of the Ratchet & Clank community but Insert Coin Clothing should restock the previous Ratchet & Clank designs in the future just in case some of the fans might’ve missed out on them.
On the other hand, I initially didn’t want to purchase the Clank Robotics shirt and the Qwark hoodie since despite I’m a Ratchet & Clank fan, Clank and Captain Qwark aren’t my favourite characters. Ratchet and Orvus (from Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time) are my favourite characters. In spite Clank and Captain Qwark aren’t my favourite characters, I eventually decided to buy the designs based on them anyway, seeing as there may not be a chance they will reappear in the store ever again.
In conclusion in spite of the brutally honest, ludicrous and highway robbery-esque prices, the clothes are worth every penny and you’ll get your money’s worth and one can never have too many Ratchet & Clank pieces of clothing, regardless of the steep prices which I can’t stress enough.
