06 Aug Target To Sell High-End “Hunger Games” Merchandise
According to Variety, the chain will be selling a 14-carat gold reproduction of Katniss Everdeen’s Mockingjay pin for $999, a replica of her leather hunting jacket for $349 and a lithograph signed by pic’s cast, including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, for $699.
All three will only be available on Target’s website, beginning midnight Aug. 18, with only 100 of the pins and lithographs, and 50 jackets available over three days.
In stores, the company will sell more traditional movie merchandise — from backpacks and lunchboxes to jewelry, pillow cases and life-size cardboard cut-outs of the film’s characters — with prices starting at a more manageable $7.
Walmart is bundling the DVD and Blu-ray with a Mockingjay pendant and downloads of bonus content, including looks at the stunts and fashions from the pic through Vudu. Best Buy offers its own limited edition collectible with its two-disc combo packs, while Costco is theming its boxed set around the film’s District 12 with bonuses, including a necklace. Prices range from $21-$45.
