Merchandise

I've already spent money on the pre-order, but I want to spend more. On merchandise! Does the license allow you to create merchandise around the game? If so, I'd love to see some... soundtrack, Steve Purcell prints and so on. What says ye?

  • @Jenny said: The basics, T-Shirts, Mugs, posters are a good start. Possibly the T-Shirt you get in the SMI when you dig up the Treasure of Melee Island? References like that? All Monkey Island Canon in one easy to read book? Some of LeChuck's pirate pamplets. The Phatt Island Library could provide a ton of titles to be bought as merchandise.



    Those are some great ideas, I really like the idea of using in-game references as real merchandise - especially the Treasure shirt. I also think a music album covering the entire series would be incredible. It could contain music from games 1-4, 1 Special Edition, and Tales. Maybe even have some live tracks or remixes on it.

    If there was ever a time for a MI merchandise blitz (and well, it has been for 20 years now!), this is probably the best time considering the reignited passion of the long time fans and the newer fanbase that can be reached.

    I hope Lucasarts gets on this further and/or allows Telltale some leeway in coming up with some new stuff to buy. Otherwise it will be slightly awkward for all of us fans to be eagerly pulling out our wallets only to be rebuffed and told not to spend our stinking pieces of 8 on their treasure :D

  • Just give us a monkey island themepark!!!

    Thanks, and yes, a music album of the entire series would be fantastic! Or even 5 different soundtracks if they want to make some extra money. I'll buy them all.

    If this ever happened, I would probably have to seriously consider quitting my job and working there for at least a few years.

  • Just a month ago I made an unofficial Monkey Island-inspired tea blend called "Pirate's Brew" on Adagio.com.

    They even reviewed it here on Adagio TeaV, their weekly tea blend review video podcast.

  • Due to the level of Fandom here I suspect come of you may have purchased on of these:
    Sam and Max Statue

    I certainly did!

    I have spoken to the guy there and he says they are trying to get rights to do other Lucas Arts Characters. I seriosuly hope they can do a Guybrush\Elaine or similar statue, perhaps using artwork from CMI.

    That looks like awesome tea! Rum and Gunpowder though? I'm assuming those are just nicknames right?

    Rum tea is rum flavored black tea, and gunpowder is a green tea that is so curled up that it resembles gunpowder, and to top it off it has a rather smoky taste to it.

  • I'm going to have to order some!

    Awesome, if you do, you've got to let me know what you think of it once you've tried it. :D
