With all the new marvel movies coming out this year, finding the perfect gift or thing to wear to the movies can be challenging. Here are ten places to go to find perfect marvel merchandise for the upcoming films.
Think Geek—This small store set up online and at North Star Mall, has all the geeks from all the different universes yelling. From Scarlet Witch, Captain Marvel and Black Widow purses to T-shirts, action figures and even lamps, this store has everything that could be hoped for a dedicated fan of marvel.
Hot Topic—This store may be overstuffed with things from all different universes, but it’s a great place to go. The new Captain Marvel leather jacket caught my eye as I walked by. I was so tempted to purchase it. Captain Marvel is not the only marvel in there (but I will say the new Captain Marvel sneakers are amazing). There are so many options in this store, and even if they are out of stock, look online at their sales and prices.
Target—Just around the corner of Johnson, Target doesn’t just offer great prices for candy and decorations. Collect the movies, earbuds, action figures, and clothing with your favorite marvel characters covering them like splattered paint. The huge store offers from that cute beanie and to that one-thousand piece lego set of Wakanda. Wander and find exactly what you’re looking for.
Disney Store—Now that Disney owns marvel, they sell marvel items of all shapes at their own store set up at North Star Mall. There are tons of costumes, stuffed animals, and figures to choose from. If what is desired cannot be found in the store, there are still plenty more options and sizes online. Maybe even buy a few Disney princess items(*cough* Shuri *cough*).
Amazon—Amazon is the go-to for pretty much everything now a days. Just click and type away what is wanted and something is bound to show up. This huge empire, letting small businesses sell through them, is a great place to go for merchandise of any type, especially marvel. Find an Avengers quilt, a pillow with your favorite superhero(or villain) on the front or a phone case covered with all the characters you love with just a few types on the keyboard.
Barnes & Noble—Sure there are action figures and their are pops and jackets and T-shirts, but why not go back to the basics? Here, there are endless marvel comics to go to. See where it began with the Infinity Gauntlet and Captain America. Revisit Stan-Lee’s creations on paper, in bright colors and smooth pages. If comics is not what is wanted, there is always a possibility there are action figures at the back of the bookstore.
Mondo—Mondo is the place to go to get limited edition posters to decorate your wall for a marvel marathon, pins to put on your lanyard, music from the movies, collectables, or get figurines old and new. There is so much this places has to offer. Alamo Drafthouse event sponsors their merchandise. Just click on the link to get started on the geeky shopping.
Torrid—The new Captain Marvel Jacket has come to this store, along with everything new and bright with the upcoming films. Even if you’re not looking for Captain Marvel, this place still has plenty of heroes to choose from.
Marvel Shop—I didn’t even know that marvel had their own shop. This is the perfect place to grab a few items that cannot be found anywhere else. From T-shirts, jackets, posters and movies, the Marvel Shop has first dibs on everything marvel. If you can’t find exactly the things you want, this is the place to go.
SuperHeroStuff—Check out the new Infinity Gauntlet ring, Winter Soldier pajama pants, marvel beanies and SHIELD accessories. This places offers hoodies for every superhero you could ask for as well as watches. Maybe with a bit of extra cash, you could purchase a pair of mystery socks, decorated with the many heroes of the universe.
It doesn’t matter what you are looking for. From jackets to beanies to purses, you will find something you like from this list of stores. Every store is another option to show off your pride and love for your heroes.
