Cashing In


Some people don't like all the Twilight merchandise, but I love it. Who cares if it's cheesy... the more the better. I want it ALL. Twilight Sweethearts, stickers, band-aids, perfume, trading cards, lip balm, action figures... I'm single-handedly boosting Hot Topic's annual sales. What merchandise have they not yet created that they should? Twilight-gum? (Forbidden-fruit flavored)




I think they'd make a killing if they bottled the scent of Edward. But not in typical tacky Twilight packaging but decent enough packaging to trick our men to actually wear it! Frig, they could bottle water and say it was the rain drops they collected from the shoot and I'd pay a million for it!





I would buy a Twilight alarm clock where instead of the buzzer sound or a radio it would just be the sound of Rob's voice. That would definitely wake me up, though it might not get me out of bed if you know what I mean... Mr. Spank should send a thank you card to Rob. Seriously.






Rob could say things like "Get up, it's time to daaaaaance." **swoon** I think we need Rob Pattinson to read the series. And maybe the dictionary. (Just imagine the accent saying words like "need" and "wet."). How about an entire line of Twilight-inspired first aid supplies? Why stop at bandaids? I know after listening to the audio books and clock I'd need some antiseptic for my scratched knees *ifyouknowwhatI'msaying* **raising eyebrow**






Meadow, are you ovulating? ;)









**AHEM** Getting back to topic...How about a Cullen Family Italian Cookbook? I'd buy it. I love Italian food.









I'd buy that if Edward Cullen brings the meat.










Oh he'd be bringin' the meat (I was going to say something about sausage and Italian but that seemed a little obvious). Okay, sorry, let's take this discussion out of the bedroom (kitchen countertop, backseat of my car, wherever) and focus. F-O-C-U-S. Nope, not working. Twilight underwear, anyone?

Ooh, I could get board with Virtual Forks. Could we take a tour of Edward's bedroom? Especially his Eclipse bedroom, complete with yellow satin sheets. Expansion packs could include Virtual Isle Esme. At which point I'd need the first aid supplies again.






I'd be shredding pillows all over my house while wearing the friggin goggles! I swear if Edward asked me "are you afraid?" I'd tell him, "No, but you should be. I'll give you a head start, on your mark get set, just try and run from me."






That is one VERY good point about being a Twilight Mom. We have the experience necessary back up that threat.






I knew I should've just done this post with Mr. Ginger. Keeping you guys on topic is harder than herding cats. Or should I say herding Cougars.






**Happy Friday! What Twilight merchandise do YOU think they should make? And speaking of Twilight merchandise... who is going to a DVD Release party tonight?

They need an entire line of Twilight action figures. They already have Edward and Bella and Alice (somewhere). They just need to expand and make every single character possible.

Much as I am not Team Jacob, I think that a Human/Werewolf transformer type thing sound kind of cool.

The alarm clock definitely sounds like a good idea!

A dollhouse that is shaped just like the Cullens house. So you can set up your whole set of action figures inside.

And don't forget: Rob flavored Hot Pockets

@Spider: LOL I was laughing so hard at your line: "are you afraid?" I'd tell him, "No, but you should be. I'll give you a head start, on your mark get set, just try and run from me."... HA HA HA HA!!!
Though, I wouldnt warn him. I would just attack. LOL!!!

About the merchandise... well, they could make a full body doll of him with all the "needed" parts on them. An adult body I mean if you understand me. Who wouldn't buy it I ask you?

My daughter kept talking to me while I was trying to read. Geesh, kids, they just want our attention.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHA I cannot tell her WHY I'm laughing at Spider's comment asking Meadow if she's ovulating. Actually, I can't tell her anything about you ladies-- it would frighten her. Oh man, I JUST saw the Deep Thoughts with Mr. Ginger. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA So, cool. Back to today's thoughts...
merchandise. Hmmmm...cell phone ring tone with Edward's voice? More wallpaper for my laptop? How about a mouse with an Edward face/body? So, when you are using the mouse it's like you are...well, you know.

There is only one piece I want and I want it life sized.
Speaking of life-sized have you seen the cardboard life-size Edward in store displays? Why does he look like a preteen boy? It kind of bothers me. I know this Twilight thing is mostly a teen girl thing but seriously, if you what to sell stuff your cardboard Edward should be more buff. But, they might have trouble keeping their store displays. I know I would run through the mall headed for an exit if I could get a life sized Edward that looked anything like that photoshopped one for New Moon. Life-size Rob, no shirt, hell yes.

Erin said...

@Spank I think ALL of our husbands should be thanking Rob & Stephenie! They have much to be 'thankful' for :)!

I think they could put Rob's face on just about anything and it would fly off of the shelves!

Maybe I'll make a 'virtual tour' of Forks when I'm there in 52 days! I'll let y'all know about that one ;)!

I don't know anyone here that will go to a DVD Release with me :( and hubby doesn't want anything to do with it (even with the added *ah hum* benefits he's received!) And my pre-order DVD from Target won't be here until TUESDAY!! AHHH!

Erin said...

Oh yeah, just a little FYI...

If you have a yahoo account and add "Twilight Archives" to you My Yahoo page, it suggest some GREAT fanfic...and refreshes every so often.

robin(me) said...

Erin, I'll go with you. Meet me at 9!
How about a life size blow up Edward/Rob! I don't think my hubby would mind? pffff. Who cares?
...as if you can out run me....oh yeah, edward? you've never met a grandma of a 2 yr old, have you?

HappyHourSue said...

@meadow: Rob reading the audiobook! Brilliant! but he'd have to do his edward voice.

Also: Edward masks for our husbands. For the bedroom. What.

katarinas mama said...

Rob and audiobook is a definite MUST. Pleasepleaseplease stop the Iamsurelovely but misguided narrator from misprounouncing female protags name, yet again..Bell-AH. My youngest is an Isabella, a Bella and sometimes refred to as Smella. But really, narrator chick - buhbye. Rob would know how to say Bella and daaaaance...and what were all the other words there?? Yeah. You guys got all the good ones covered. *giggles*

Erin said...

You want your own life-sized Rob stand up poster? It seems you can actually order it...hehe!

The comment by the poster actually states "What you do with his is your business"

Here is what should happen, to add on to Sue here....Stephenie will finish midnight sun and Rob can audiobook it. OMG i would die.

I was able to watch the Twilight DVD Release on Monday....yes, total hookup...even ate the twilight-themed sweethearts while watching...

getting to the point....Rob's voice as Edward is so nice, I seriously paused the movie to discuss his voice for ten minutes.

So, audiobook for sure ;)

I so want to go to a Borders party...

rxmeds96 said...

I think they already have "Team Edward" and "Team Jacob" thongs (see Tyra clips) but maybe with Edward's face on the front of it (ooh did I just put that, bad me)

robin(me) said...

how about rob reading fanfiction in his edward's voice. i think you can actually die from that! oh but what a sweet death!

CTJenny said...

I want Midnight Sun (and every other book re written from Edward's perspective) on audiobook done by Rob... or I can let him out of the closet at night so he can read me to sleep with them. His choice... always, his choice.

HappyHourSue said...

Holy Crap Robin!!! Rob reading "Wide Awake"!!!!!!! I would spontaneously combust and orgasm at the same time.

Ana Cristina said...

Like I told the boyf last night, "Yes, if they sold crap on a stick and put a Twilight sticker on it, I'd probably buy it."

I am a sad, sad girl...

Erin said...

@HappyHourSue I think you have that right!

robin(me) said...

I would like it if my PE spoke in Rob's velvety voice so I could lay him on my pillow as he read Robporn to me. Uhhh. OOPS sorry. Got carried away.
