Default Oddworld Merch Ideas?

Hey,
Lately I've been trying to think of some ideas for Oddworld Merch and while I've thought up a few things, they're mostly stuff I just personally like and I don't think would actually sell too well such as hair beads with a mud feather and the oddworld logo dangling off it, but not everyone would want one.

So I'm curious as to what you guys would want as Oddworld merch or are you happy with T-shirts and posters?

The only thing missing for me would be high-quality figurines, but those would be expensive!

Ahh true, I'd fork out for them though if they where good quality. Some members of the press got sent some for the release of NnT that looked amazing the lucky bastards.
I wouldn't mind an Official Oddworld Tea.

1. Vinyl Figurines (Such as the ones made by Pop! since they made figurines for EVERY franchise from Star Wars to Marvel to Steven Universe).

2. Posters. Can be 3D-rendered, drawn like the the concept art for the games, or be images from old items such as concept art or adverts, or be a different-styled art.

That's all I can think of for now. I might have more ideas later.

That really has nothing to do with merchandise and is completely irrelevant to the suggestion, I'm pretty sure Lorne can separate his personal life from a piece of merch.

Why is everybody obsessed with these? They look shit. I'd much rather have legitimate looking figures that are to scale and have, you know, detail.

They look adorable and are still affordable.

Detailed vinyls are VERY expensive.

Funko Pops and the like are way too overpriced for what they are, I'd happily pay £40 for a Slig Figma or something that actually looks nice. If you want adorable, why not just get a cat?

I'll not be satisfied until OW sells official fanart buttons.

Pop vinyls can look okay, but more often than not they look pretty bad, I think Munch is the only character that I can see working. I would kill for some official SSB, beside Lornes personal reason, it would be outright easier to sell regular drinks than alcohol. This is half the reason I made my own SSB replica and showed it to Lorne and OWI cause I wanted to show that people love them and want one.
We'll be getting Plushies in a few month though which is sweet.

So Gamtee have graced us with some Oddworld Socks for Chirstmas



In light of these socks I realized how much I wanted Oddworld Christmas sweaters, slouchy beanies and scarfs, all knitted and stuff for staying warm.

I love the socks and the slouchy beanie is great idea! I would also, like many, want figurines and models of things trains, native huts and and such, though they would likely be very exspensive. I also liked the mudokon pin from before but what if we could get replicas if the soustorm glukkons' medals?

Then there's the typical mugs and keychains, leather jackets and biker gloves...

After having a look around on Redbubble, I've seen some sweet af oddworld designs on phone wallets and travel cups that I would love to own, but aren't official and most likely aren't being used with permission but I think OWI should look at some of these and consider doing something similar.
Here's two of the best examples.

I have messaged the OWI twitter and linked this thread so they can see what people have said they would like and they responded saying they'll give it a look and add it to a document they have of poll results where they asked what people wanted.

The way I see it is if I can cram as much Oddworld into my my everyday life through little things like the bracelets, beanies, earrings, jackets and figures the better.
I would kill for official Soul Storm Brew, they could contact Orangina and go, hey can you stick some green food dye and this label on your bottles? The bottle shapes already almost identical.

Wow i love the travel cup and phone wallet! A regular wallet, laptop case and small bag would be pretty great too!

Hell, I'd buy an official pen or papper weight if it were a good design or model tbh

I'm the same to be honest, if the design is good enough, I'll buy it. The only Oddworld Merch I haven't brought is the Abe sneaking shirt but that's more because of the colour of the shirt, I adore the design just wish it came in other colours.
