Safety glasses? Check.
Sweatshirts? Check.
Targets for boulder shooting checks? Check. X marks the spot.

AndyMark once briefly considered also selling belts, suspenders, earrings, and other fashion accessories. Here we see one of the very few leaked pictures of their prototyping process.

During the off season, instead of building a t-shirt cannon we decided to venture into designing merchandise. The result was disappointing yet somehow expected.

Their challenge was to make two backpacks using only parts from AndyMark's inventory. This was as far as they got.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #724

There were supposed to be magnets in the wearable treads to hold tools, but it was determined that most items would stick to the tread well enough that magnets weren't required. While this did allow easy storage of non-ferrous articles, the project was abandoned after early wearable treads containing magnets were accidentally shipped for robot use. There was also the issue of anyone wearing the tool holder treads being followed by an increasing number of random people in search of the sugar cookies.
