Copies of them could be sold in stores to get more potential consumers interested in BT products. The BT Puzzle 3D products could even be miniatures that hubeings could glue the pieces together of, but they’d probably have to appear nice looking. Some dolls could be full scale to be used as collectors’ items. The boxes could be school supplies boxes and toolboxes. How about furniture, bedsheets, blankets, quilts, comforters, and pillowcases, and various clothing? What’s any of your ideas for new BT products? BT affiliations’ clothing? Mazes booklets, coloring books.

There is already an official Activity/Coloring book on the CGL store.
Also a puzzle.

Then there is Esty for the rest.

I've got coasters that my wife made me. WD, KH, and a Banshee silhouette.

A Flashman ‘Mech plushie would be ideal. :)

Thanks for compliment. I think you could make BTU become so advanced more than BT official website than what BT TPTB could ever dream of. :)

BT TV, postage stamps of BT objects; Cereals, Candies, Pastas, Cookies, Chips, Cookie Cutters

Post by eLMsm »

So what is each of your opinions of broadcasting or making one or more:

BT TV Channels?

postage stamps of BT objects?

candies, cereals, cookies, cookie cutters, chips, and pastas that each look like BT objects?

BT TV: not enough interest to justify cost. We ARE discussing, what is at its core, a table top board game based in a fictional universe.

Stamps: maybe on Etsy, but nothing official. See above

Others: also on Etsy.

Maybe those millions of new players, that want BT clair skills rules and BT magic spells skills rules, could chip in sufficient money to pay for BT TV Channels. There could be a BT version of Double Dare, Jeopardy! , Let’s Make a Deal, and The Price Is Right.

Catalyst Game Labs could make wallpaper of some BT pictures to be put on murals with clear plastic covering (to protect against rain, hail, sleet, snow, ice) ; some cities are now paying homeless hubeings to put pictures on murals. On murals, BT pictures could depict nonviolence like JumpShips, worlds, colorful map sheets, portraits of BT Characters, etc. ; that will provide BT some publicity for more BT items to be sold for more money for Catalyst Game Labs.

How about BT versions of backgammon, chess, and checkers games? Pictures of BT Characters could be printed on such games pieces, and be in stores to attract potential players to BT.

Maybe charge $1 per each, of a huge variety of, downloadable BT screensavers?

some of the Very Best BattleTech themed art started out as Free.
example: ShimmeringSword originated from Deviant Art.

I think TPTB is doing quite well with their KickStarters and related tie-in like the UrbanMech plush.

that said:
If they EVER made the 25' tall inflatable UrbanMech available for sale ... I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Bro, I'm pretty sure my wife would smack me for buying it because I'd want to take it EVERYWHERE!
