Merch and Collectable Ideas
« on: October 15, 2009, 11:24:19 PM »
First of sorry if a thread like this has already been started (I had a look at the last few pages but Im lazy and gave up)

After todays blog post: "I've been thinking of offering more collector's items like this in the future. What do you think? Do you like that I'm offering this Allomantic Table print? Should I get Isaac to make Feruchemy and Hemalurgy tables? What other items are you itching for? I'm considering having a swordsmith make Nightblood replicas, but they would run about $250 and that doesn't even include a sheath. Do I have fans who would go for something like that? (And how much would a sheath be worth to you?)"

I thought it would be nice to post some of our ideas here.

I am all up for the sword idea, I have a couple already and they are great and I would love a Nightblood personally. The sheath is a pretty important part of the design so I would like to see that included, maybe have it available with or without so people have the choice if they are willing to pay extra. I get my swords from a place called Global Gear they are Australian and I dont know if they ship internationally but they have a good website http://www.globalgear.com.au/ and have pictures showing what kind of result we could get.

As far as other ideas go I don't have many. There hasn't been that many hero items in the Brandon Sanderson books yet (like the WOT has the Ashendari, the heron mark blades, the Aes Sedai rings etc)

Elends Duelling cane
A scaled model of Nightblood,  Koloss sword and duelling cane
Vins mistcloak (for real not just the dead link in the store :) )
Sazeds pheruchemical stores/ bracelets etc
A cloth bag of boxings 
Wisdom cannot be found in a single sentence...

...You need at least two.

A table that shows you how to draw an Aeon... like what you would see in Elantrian schools

I teach government and I would kill for the *real* world map from Alcatraz.

In no particular order:
-Mistcloaks
-Feruchemical and Hemalurgic tables
-Nightblood/dueling cane/syre replicas
-Additional miniatures added to the range (a few ideas: TLR, a WoA terrain-piece, any of the crew members)

On a more humorous note:
-Do-it-yourself Hemalurgy kits!
-Actual beads of Larasium! (We know you have them. Share the love, man.)
-Full suits of gyorn armor!
-Pre-shredded and tasseled clothing - Awakening made easy!

there was also a thread somewhere on here where people gave a lot of ideas for different shirt possibilities. i'm eagerly waiting for someone to make a "Devoted Follower of the Church of the Drunken Monkey" shirt

Oh, I second this. That would be freaking awesome!

I also agree with the mistcloaks. I would pay good money for a mistcloak. I'm not nearly savvy enough in the sewing department to make one myself, but I would love one.

Maybe a shirt with something about the Great Kitten Conspiracy on it....

I would buy this in a heartbeat, holy crap!

I'd buy that shirt especially, but the others in that thread were really good.

I can't wait for Feruchemical and Hemalurgic tables.

Should I get Isaac to make Feruchemy and Hemalurgy tables?

Yes.  Yes.  YES, YES, YES!  A thousand times YES! 


I would very much like Feruchemy and Hemalurgy tables to go with the Allomancy one.

I'm all about the REAL map of earth. That would be awesome.
I also like the idea of a "how-to" on drawing Aons and such.
Ooh! A do-it-yourself Koloss making kit! (just add the bodies of a few of your friends, and, BAM! Instant Koloss!)
Okay, maybe not so much on the last one.
You know, Maps are just cool, no matter what. So, although the REAL map of earth would be my top priority, I'd also be interested in larger, detailed, and even colored maps from Elantris and Mistborn.
