Wish list for future products....

Postby Steve Hubbell » Wed Apr 08, 2015 21:08 +0000

Whenever I go to the local comic shop and see all those fancy pint glasses sporting the different superhero characters, it really makes me wish that there was a set of glasses something like these......

Judging by how well the tote bags, new shirts, and baby items sold at WonderCon, I'd expect all those to become part of the regular lineup. Towards the end of the third day, Stan didn't have much merchandise left.

As for things I'd like to see and would use: Usagi Yojimbo water bottle (something like a Klean Kanteen); embroidered patch; baseball hat; and -as much as I like the current tote bags- a larger, reusable grocery sized bag would get a lot more day-to-day use from me (now that plastic grocery sacks have been banned here). Actually, the current totes are decent size in height and length, but the width of the bottom is pretty narrow, so not that great for groceries.

If I'm recalling correctly (and not confusing the panels I attended at WonderCon), Stan said the merchandise people considered Usagi boxers at one point. Not that I necessarily need Usagi boxers. But if someone made them, I probably wouldn't say "no" to owning a pair. Or two. 8)

That's not a bad idea Steve :)

And assuming Stan has more merchandise at SDCC, then I suspect I'll be adding a few bits to the prospective shopping list request heh.

This. I seem to remember seeing photos of Stan with the Usagi symbol on hats (like the one in this photo). I would love one in black hat with that logo.

Also, of course, Rokutoys Series 3!!! :D

I do not drink Sake, but I would buy Usagi Yojimbo Sake merchandise.

Buck, I was just digging up some images, like that hat.

I would like to recommend bringing them back, maybe different than the originals.

Anything with the Usagi Yojimbo chop..... Hat, Cloisonne pin (or other cheaper pins), sticker, t-shirts....

Image Image Image

Other items...

UY Hana Fuda cards....
Image Image

More collectible cards...

At the recent Long Beach Comic Expo, I saw a lot of artists selling cards, either pre-printed or blank one that they sketch/paint on.

We had the UY mug and tea cup, which I have and like very much...
Image Image

But I'd like to see Usagi on more traditional Japanese ware, and maybe with a different style (more like some of Stans recent watercolors).

I like this idea too. Dark Horse used to do shot glasses. I have some Hellboy (and Sin City?) ones somewhere...


And we would need coasters to go with the glasses...

My usagi chop hat has seen it's better days. I would love an new Usagi themed hat.

How about car decal? Those made out of magnets and you can just slap on the trunk of your car? It's better than a bumper sticker because you can remove it without an glue sticking to your car.

Peace, maka

Usagi decals for your car would be bad BADWORD. I would also want a Usagi Mecha logo from Senso hood ornament for my car too.

Another thing that would be cool would be a Usagi notebook or binder. I would definitely buy one (or two, or ten) of those.
