Do you collect any Tintin Merchandise? How do you feel about it in General? Do you think they are taking it too far? I mean, you can pretty much find anything with Tintin's pictures or logo on it these days.
one of my keychains
I think I read somewhere that Herge himself wasn't too found of it and didn't want there to be so much commercial exploitation. As for myself, I sort of agree, but still it's hard not to buy your favorite Tintin stuff when they look so amazing. I don't have a lot though. I have a few keychains (including a wonderful plush snowey, I'll post the pic later), both anniversary Swatches, the 10 Euro coins, and most of the calendars from 2001 (wall-sized and agendas). I specially like the calendars for the art, the best is a special edition 2001 giant calendar and all the images from it are from "Explorers on the Moon".
Of course I've also got all the books in English and Persian, and a lot of newspaper clippings related to Tintin.
Anyway, I don't think many people can beat this guy's collection though, check it out, it's amazing.
