wow. so for the longest time, i have been craaaaazy about game merch. i like it, ok? there’s a lot worse i could be doing, i.e. crystal meth, but i like merchandise. a lot of the games i play aren’t really mainstream enough to warrant their own line of collectibles though. the saboteur, for example. fantastic game, but likely not going to get action figures anytime soon.
i drool a little bit everytime i find something, and today is no exception. little_nerdxo has been telling me that ardene has the sackboy from littlebigplanet. naturally though, a girl going into an accessories store asking for video game merch would likely be seen as an act of rebellion, so every time a clerk approaches me and asks if they can help me, i shake my head no. sometimes i look for myself, but they never have it.
bah. i digress. it turns out that once again, the french have the answer. this great place called ‘toys on fire’ in montreal has a whole pile of littlebigplanet merchandise you can order online, or pick up in store. they’ve also got a location in nepean, but i love montreal a lot more.
