Official merchandise overview
« on: January 17, 2019, 09:39:34 AM »
Hi all,

This website is of course very informative when it comes to U2's music and video catalogue, but what about the merchandise? Excluding t-shirts since that list would probably be longer than the Love Is Bigger Remixes one ;)

One 'History Mix' article pretty much sums up every promo item (besides music) that has been issued during the Pop/PopMart era. Before reading the article I never heard about the snowglobe or kaleidoscope items! Such kind of article, specifically by era such as the 'History Mix' Pop one, would be handy for collectors IMO.

Is there any way to sum up all the official merchandise (I know it's a lot!) including buttons, keychains, keyrings, pins etc. from each era? Websites for instance or maybe someone's personal collection?

I know it might be a long shot to list everything but it's so hard to find official buttons (for example on eBay) instead of all the fake ones.

All I've found so far is the third reply on the following page, the one by utwothefly
https://u2start.com/topic/3561/552/12/

Any help or answer would be appreciated!
Bob

Coming soon to a website near you.  :)

We are working on it.  In the meantime you can see the old section over at U2Wanderer.Org still.  It dealt more with the promotional merchandising stuff.  The new section will cover much more.  http://www.u2wanderer.org/silver/

Thanks for your quick reply Aaron. Totally forgot about the old site which had some info!
I'm looking forward to this site's latest addition. Good luck with that!

It's a couple of months away yet. But making good progress.  Should be the next area moved over.
