Popular esports organization 100 Thieves is gearing up for another merchandise drop, and here’s when fans will be able to get their hands on the new gear.

100 Thieves merch is never in stock for long, so anybody looking to snatch up some apparel will need to set an alarm and act fast.

The organization gave fans a look at what to expect, but it’s possible the reveal could be a bait and they could have some more exclusive gear locked away.

When is the 100 Thieves merch drop?

Taking advantage of the leap year, 100 Thieves will be releasing their next line of merchandise on February 29 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET in their physical store.

For most potential buyers, they will have to wait an extra two hours until 12 PM PT / 3 PM EST which will be when the online store opens up.

Luckily, the two shouldn’t be sharing the same stock, so fans won’t have to worry about the whole collection being scooped up physically before they even have a chance.

What to expect from the release

If we’re supposed to take the image at face value, then we should be able to get our hands on a selection of sweatpants, hats, shirts, beanies, and sweatshirts.

It’s easily the most plain-looking drop we’ve seen from the organization, but that doesn’t mean it won’t sell out extremely fast as fans will scoop up anything that’s available.

After everything sells out with this drop, there’s no telling how long it’ll be until another one is available. It’s entirely possible the org will wait until the summer to release more gear, so if there’s something you want, then you’ll have to act fast.

Stock will be extremely limited, so don’t even wait five minutes or it might end up being too late for you. Keep your eye on the store for your opportunity.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
