Merch Mashup - PAX Australia 2013
Jess takes a look around the show floor at PAX AU to find out what's hot in merch and geek memorabilia.
I liked the look of everything!
...ugh...argh...i think im turning into...a merch zombie...AAAARRGHHHG
...MUST HAVE MERCH!!! MERCH!!!
mmmmmmmm not that much of what I could see looked all that interesting.
I'd go for a Nuka Cola poster (didn't see any T-shirts of it)
It looked ok enough. A nice frame for it and it could find its new home on one of my walls. Should have been tin though. Tin retro parody is pretty cool.
I'm still miffed I missed out on those great Futurama propaganda tin signs a couple of eons ago.
Do a google for " futurama tin" and gasp and the beauty of such masterpieces as
"The Future is today - worry about it tomorrow"
"See outer space - First stop ~ The Moon! It's not just an airless desert anymore"
"You're not paid to think - a mindless worker is a happy worker! Shut up and do your job!"
"Resist the permanent career implant chip - YOU... have the right to choose your own dead-end job!"
"Unite - Join the Man-Machine Brotherhood"
"When working on the sun... ....use protective eyewear!"
and a handful others. You need to see the retro art on the tinplates to appreciate the beauty of it all. I'd want something similar on my walls.
Be it from futurama or fallout or something else I enjoy.
Thanks for the vid!
is the price marked up really high for stuff at conventions like this? Can't this all be found online and cheaper? or is it just part of the experience - I mean who buys a $129 skyhook? If I were a millionaire sure
I don't want to leave any merch out nor do I want to discriminate against any of it. So I'll just take all of it.
I watched twice and didn't see anything I think I'd buy. :s
The Street Fighter Monopoly game seemed kinda fun, though. Charging Ryu $2000 for using "hadoken" on Boardwalk with a hotel; who wouldn't wanna do that?
Australian dollars though
