    One of the things that gets me excited about the upcoming TV series is the likelihood of merchandise. While there are a few places to get WoT themed items, they are usually treated as "specialty items and fetch a high price. I am hoping that the release of the show inspires more companies to create some nice merchandise and memorabilia. Here are a few things that I have wished for...

    A WoT set of dice (With the pips arranged as seen in chapter logos)
    An "Official" WOT version of Stones (similar to Go)
    A WoT version of Risk (played the same way on a randland map with different factions)
    Snakes and Foxes
    Angreal, Ter'angral and Sa'angreal
    Clothing items
    Speaking bobble-head Narg

    What are you guys hoping to see as far as merchandise when the TV show comes out?

    I assume WoT Monopoly is a given.

    I want replicas of the swords and things like Mat's ashandarei, like were done for Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, etc.

    I wonder what the player pieces would be. One of them has to be a seal to the DO's prison.

    WoT Monopoly would be great.

    Just had a thought. My kids like collectibles like pokemon cards and Pez dispensers. If they were to come out with a collectible card game or some pez dispensers they would go nuts.

    I expect that there will likely be another release of the books with new cover art once the TV show increases interest.

    I'll betcha Aes Sedai shawls will suddenly be a lot easier to get. :)

    And I hope I can get a letter opener of Tam's heron-marked blade to keep next to the Sting one I've got! :yay

    It would be nice to have some things easier to get, but hoping the quality doesn't go down for the sake of having more available faster.

    I don't know if Harriet McDougal has given any companies the exclusive right to produce official merchandise but that is what I think she would do. There will always be companies that will try to undercut quality products with cheaper options.

    I hope that any clothing they make is of high quality. Especially things like shawls, warder cloaks, and gleeman cloaks. Accessories like hadori, jewelry, and weaponry would be best if it is hand made. The more I think on this subject... the more I think that I am going to go into debt when they release everything.

    I have yet to see any company make a fox head medallion the way I imagine it should be. I am also curious what a paralis net would look like. Probably takes forever to put it on.

    There's so many jewelry ideas, that's for sure. Excited to see what is developed.

    I made some Ajah Faerie Doors a few years back but they didn't sell well because no one knew what they were, perhaps I should make some new ones!

    Probably depends what gets licenced. We have seen a couple of companies that made WoT themed material stop doing so (Taverern Tees And Badalli I think), and I haven't seen anything replace them yet.

    As of April 28th 2019, Badalli was no longer allowed to make new jewelry. They are allowed to sell any remaining stock up to October 2019.
    Ta'veren Tee's also has not been allowed to make any new items since April 28th 2019, but they posted that they will have their remaining stock available for a time.
