Title: "Phoenix Online Shop" the missing tab
Post by: Kimmie on July 18, 2010, 05:28:04 AM
"Home" "About" "News" "Projects" "Jobs" "Fan Club" "Forums" "Contact" all the tabs we can currently see!


But what about "P.O.S Shop" tab?? ;D

To buy all things necessary like 'Replica Adventurers Cap', "Tis beyond my reach T-Shirt", 'TSL Mousemat', Poseable TSL action figures, Character Masks for Halloween  ;) etc

So if there was a TSL shop, what would you want to buy?

We're now open for business *Stands behind the counter*

shouldn't we start referring to the team and forums and such as POS and only use TSL for the actual game nowadays? (so it would be a POS shop and we can buy a Faith actionfigure!)

Interesting concept - so they can't make any money off TSL, but why not have a POS shop?

can we go for a Cesar action figure?

nah it'd be like one of those nutcracker dolls where the mouth moves up and down and a certain noise would come out...it'd very much resemble this action;  :suffer:

I really like this idea.

See I do occasionally come up with some good ideas ;)

Basically it's because I've been ordering merchandise for work which gave me the idea  :suffer:

Sweet!  Start a shop on Cafe Press for POS items!  I'd be all over that!

I made a cafepress shirt for my friend for her birthday that was pretty funny. It's basically Cedric saying "Watch out, Graham, it's a POIson..." and then graham going "Shut up, Cedric". I've been meaning to add to my collection. I was thinking of adding a Connor one sometime... Perhaps I should open a cafepress store for all manner of KQ merchandise? Of course, no TSL material will be there, and the profits would all go to me, not the team. Nor would the profits be used for the team...

DO IT!  I've scoured Cafe Press for King's Quest stuff, and there's literally only like eight items total.  I'd pay you for merchandise, d-d!

I'd rather see some official PO-sanctioned items.

Unfortunately, that won't be happening. As per the agreement with activision, we can't make any money of any kind off of TSL, and that includes merchandise. I will say this though: The idea has been tossed around before to open a CafePress account, but it was ultimately scrapped because it would conflict with the license. That being said, I'm going to try and work on some new designs for my own cafepress and maybe open a shop down the line... Most would be KQ related, but not to TSL. I've already got some MoE ideas in mind...

Have you guys looked at just doing Phoenix Online merchandise?  I know you can't do anything related to King's Quest, but now that there's more publicity you could potentially start bringing in some money with mechandise that's just branded for Phoenix.

I'll bring that up to the team. I would so buy some Phoenix online t-shirts and sweatshirts and just about everything else... What I would love to see are shirts that have phoenix's logo on the front, and then our forum names on the back. But that would get way too complicated and expensive...

I say just do shirts with the Phoenix logo on the front, we're perfectly capable of making iron-ons for our forum names on the back.  I'd totally be all over stuff like that too.

Well I tried to make the thread say POS Shop but I think now that I've already given it a name it won't have it!! But yeh thats what I was thinking was missing :) Once new games start coming out the team can create whatever they want :D

But for now, we can just discuss what we WOULD have if we could! Like WoW brought out the talking Murloc Toy, we could have a Cedric ;)...only kidding

They already have a talking Cedric, it was just marketed as "Furby."

My sister had one of those. It was freaky and a bit scary.

XD ROFLOL I hear that!

I'd like to see Graham's adventurer's cap. And of course a Graham bobblehead...

Jollo needs a bobblehead.

YES! Especially with a voice box.

everytime he's jolted (over a bump) he says "Egads!!" and if he's completely toppled over when you do a sharp corner or something, a witty death phrase comes out about your driving skill!

A replica adventurer's cap would be very, very cool.

Are we trying to rename this thread as the TSL shop instead of POS? It still shows up as the latter for me, but I can edit it if you want.
Title: Re: "POS Shop" the missing tab
Post by: wilco64256 on July 21, 2010, 12:04:21 PM
No it was TSL shop originally but we got it switched to POS Shop once it became clear people were actually interested in some Phoenix stuff.
Title: Re: "POS Shop" the missing tab
Post by: koko_99_2001 on July 21, 2010, 12:04:55 PM
I think we were wanting the POS Shop, since no money can be made off of TSL :)

Ahh, gotcha.

Then might no one mind if I change it PO Studios? We try to avoid the POS acronym when we can.
