: 40 Years Creep (Subscriber T-Shirt)
: Arkwright99 23 January, 2017, 03:24:16 PM
Apologies if this isn't the right place exactly, but I just thought I'd mention (and say thanks) that (what I guess is) my Prog/Meg Subscription '40 Years Creep' t-shirt with Chris Burnham's Prog 2000 artwork arrived in the post this morning.

Thanks, subscription droids!  :D

Bah. I renewed in October when it was still the notepad that was the gift. Hopefully, this will still be doing the rounds later this year.

Got mine today. Nice shirt. Pity it only comes in extra large (or "tent" as Supersufer has described such things elsewhere on this forum).

I usually don't like colored, voluminous objects on a t-shirt, but I could probably make an exception for that one.

Fwiw I upgraded my Prog sub to a Combi sub in July and got the notepad & pen a few weeks (months?) later. So was surprised but pleased to get the t-shirt today. Maybe I got lucky? Dunno. Hope you get lucky as well.

Oh. Does it? I was wondering if I'd missed some way to tell them I wanted an 'M' when it arrived as 'XL' today. Pity.

I'm hoping it shrinks in the wash. Even after the Christmas holidays I wouldn't fill an XL shirt.

A year ago I would have taken a XL (possibly even a XXL) but thanks to a healthier exercise & diet regime over the last 12 months I'm down to a M&S L (even a M where their vests are concerned) but the XL '40 Years' t-shirt isn't that voluminous on me.

I suspect it may be that there really isn't a standard size where these things are concerned, so what's XL for one manufacturer isn't XL for another five who have their own measurements.

Another proud and surprised owner of a 40 years T shirt here too, was wondering what the hell the package was when i got in from work to be very pleased when i opened it up and find Dredd glaring at me from underneath a clear plastic bag. Cheers Sub droids, not knowing when these get sent out makes it a fun unexpected pressie in the post!

Got mine yesterday and, being a skinny boy these days, it makes me look like Demis Roussos.

I'll be donating it to my chunkier Squaxx pal.

Indeed - mine seem to arrive at random intervals and it's always a nice surprise - last one was the notebook and pen, not had this one yet.

Mine arrived today. Rebellion seems to be of the opinion that print subscriber gifts are just that, rather than purely gifts to tempt new subscribers on board.

Sorry for picking this old scab, but all of you are 'annual' subs, yes? Not monthlies?

Yep – annual combi.

Yay, mine's arrived  :D ... and it's a depressingly well-fitting XL  :'(

Aye, this is a bit galling as a monthly subscriber.  Regular payment month in, month out.  It actually costs more for a monthly than annual subscription (186 (12 x 15.50) vs 170).  Never have fully understood the logic on this one. 

Not even an offer to purchase either.   :(

When did this start?  I was a subscriber a decade and a half ago and only got the gift the first time I subscribed.  After a few house moves it lapsed and when I started again I didn't get any new gifts :(

Yup, subscriber to the prog and Meg for more years than I care to remember and to be honest these kind of things do p*ss me off.

Error in my listing which hopefully I can correct later. It is indeed free postage and not the £2 it currently states.

Been an annual prog & meg subscriber for a couple of years now, and usually don't get the gifts as they're not being offered when my renewal goes through - but not this time!
Lovely surprise when it plopped through the letterbox. Alas its an XL, and sadly no part of my feeble frame could ever be classed as XL (sorry ladies!).
Still nice to get one though. Thanks Tharg  :thumbsup:

when is the actual 40th specific date ? Want to make sure the shirt isn't smelly, but wearable then ;)

Yeah, add me to the list of people perplexed as to why long-standing monthly subscribers (in my case for many, many years) miss out on these...    :-(
