Monkey Island- looking for merch?

Hi y’all, I’m Ange and I’m a big MI and lucasarts fan. It was the first game I ever ‘played’- I would used to bother my dad as a kid to play ‘guybrush’ and sit with him and watch him play.

It of course is now my favorite game series. However, being young when it came out- I was still in hs when tales came out even, and not allowed to buy things online- so now as an adult I’m trying to finish a collection of all (american/europe) merch.

Not easy since most MI fans probably wouldn’t want to part with their merch- I wouldn’t!

I’ve got the main boxes and english releases of all the games, the se statue, the voodoo doll, the deluxe tales, the new sega edition, and tales buttons.

Looking for, and willing to pay if anyone is willing to part with:

- The Secret Of Monkey Island Shirt, Adventurer’s Magazine from the 90’s
- LeChuck’s Revenge Shirt, Adventurer’s Magazine from the 90’s
- Tales of Monkey Island Mug
- Tales of Monkey Island Art Portfolio
- Tales of Monkey Island Tarot Cards
- Monkey Island Special Edition Bottle Shirt (I found the treasure and all I got…shirt)
- Monkey Island Special Edition Evolution of Pirate Shirt (lucasarts site?)
- Monkey Island Special Edition Lechuck vs. Guybrush Shirt (lucasarts site?)
- Monkey Island Special Edition Buttons (lucasarts site?)

And of course, if anyone knows of official merch not listed here I haven’t heard of but need to search for the collection, it’d be greatly appreciated!

Nice, can certainly say I enjoy collecting nowadays as well as it wasn’t that accessible when I originally played them.

Didn’t know there was so much merchandise actually, do you have pictures of any?

Thanks for sharing this! Like some of those old T-shirts, the voodoo doll is a nice touch as well, probably only very few were created for PAX.

I actually own the Statue and Tales of Monkey Island deluxe edition box (that has all that merch), I believe I purchased that originally from Telltale back then when it was released. I occasionally see it on ebay, like this one:

That’s not a full tarot set, is it? It looks like one card. A full set would have been impressive but pricey, I imagine.

So you’re more looking for things like this that are a set?

Yep! I listed up above what I already have:

“I’ve got the main boxes and english releases of all the games, the se statue, the voodoo doll, the deluxe tales, the new sega edition, and tales buttons.”

I’d really love my hands on the tarot cards. Telltale sold a big set of them- I only have 1 card that came with the deluxe edition.

Really? Wow, so it’s a full set. That’s up to 78 cards. Impressive.

I don’t think it’s a full set of the traditional tarot arcana, but a full set of all the tarot cards in the game, which is like 20+. One of the links is one person’s collection and they have the cards spread out and it’s about 22. Then again, I don’t own it, so maybe there is more than shown.

At 22 cards it will be the equivalent of the Major Arcarna (used by charlatan readers as they can’t get to grips with the full 78 deck - speaking here as an ex reader of the full 78 Smile ).
