Should it stay or should it go?

When I designed our infamous Swellington tees & totes last Summer I was all over them, but people didn't really seem that keen, maybe they didn't get it or it was just too cheesy, but when we had our final sale at the old shop they sold like hotcakes, it seems they have come into their own... Or maybe I'm just waaaay ahead of y'all!
Anyway I had thoughts to update our beloved Swellington- just revamp it a little but keep the idea the same. This is what I have come up with-
NEW

What do you think? Should we bring in the new Crabby Swellington or keep the old Neptune (God of the sea) style?
OLD

I tried on Neptune but he looked a little funny on me. I'd probably wear the crabby, depending on what colours he came in!

Also, I posted my outfit today (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v662/hannahjv/WIWT1-1.jpg) to whatiworetoday on livejournal (http://community.livejournal.com/whatiworetoday2/). Here are some comments:

"Oh my gosh, that t shirt is just perfect! Lovely :)"

"i love the t shirt!"

"that t-shirt is adorable"

"i love love love this"

and

"So cute I love it! Swonderful is so lovely, it used to be just down the road from my house. I must check out their new store!"

You are loved!

Oooh I like the crabby guy! I'm not a tee sort of a lass, but if I was I'd be rocking a crab one!

I'm a die hard neptune swelly tee fan but the crabbie is so cute I think he could bring about a switch in me! Even if I am an Aucklander :) Swellington rules.

Another vote for Mr. Crabby. Kool Krab! And yes I, another AKL citizen would wear it. You just need to open an online store :)

loving crabby!! but could easily go with both! you can do a new one each year and over time would have a delicious swellington collection.
