Top 5 Watership Down merchandise that SHOULD exist
« on: January 03, 2015, 02:46:57 PM »
Yeah, I thought of this and here are my opinions:

5.Watership Down Funko Pop figures: I don't collect them but it would be cool to see it in a store. Plus, it would give WD more recognition and a wider fanbase.

4.Watership Down: Rappin' Rabbits music album: Basically, an album done by the voice actors of the series who rap in-character. Fiver raps about his visions, Hazel raps about life on the warren, Dandelion raps a story about Frith, Hawkbit's rap is nothing but complaining, etc. I normally hate rap music but I think it would make a great "So Bad It's Good" type of thing. Also, rapping Keehar. Hilarious!

3.Watership Down fighting game: Basically, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, King Of Fighters, Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur, etc. but with a wide array of Watership Down characters from the books, movie AND TV series. Also, a Watership Down scroll fighting game similar to Streets Of Rage, Golden Axe or Final Fight would be good (Hazel would be the balanced fighter, Bigwig would be the tank and Fiver would be the speedy one).

2.Hawkbit and Dandelion plushies: And whatever other characters didn't get their own official plushies.

1.Watership Down audio book as read by TV series Hawkbit (with plenty of sarcastic commentary): Need I say more? Someone get Lee Ross to record this ASAP!

So, what do you think? What Watership Down merchandise do YOU think should exist?

Something like this?

"Hazel could recall Hawkbit -- a rather slow, stupid rabbit whose company for five snowbound days underground had been distinctly tedious."

Hawkbit: "It's not my fault playing bobstones can fill only so much time! Not that you had any better ideas of entertainment, Hazel..."

"My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today." - Hazel

If I knew how to make an OpenBor with custom sprites, I'd definitely make a Watership Down beat em up. Some of the bosses would probably include Moss, Campion, Vervain and maybe weasel and fox for filler bosses/miniboss enemies and a boatload of enemy rabbits. I've loved Streets Of Rage 2 since I was a kid so I'd be more than happy to play a Watership Down version of it.

As for a fighting game, I'd love that as well. Each character would have his or her own super move. Makes me wonder if anyone's made Watership Down characters for Mugen.

When the 1978 movie came out merchandise was quite scarce compared to what is offered now. 1.They needed to make ALL the plushies of the characters not just the four they did, which are extremely rare today.

2. A WSD metal lunchbox

3. Small toy figures that were not as expensive as the Royal Orleans figures...similiar to the ones that the tv series had.

4. A WSD board game

5.  T shirts with the characters on it and a quote from the movie.

This sound is giving for the postman
Another one that's feeling under orange skies
The summer sleeps in time for autumn
Sticking down your leaves on grass
And I don't know just where we've got to go

They do have the series plushies. They're available on UK Ebay :)
