No idea but I’ll guess the Beatles jumper which had something to do with the Beatles Monthly book. I think if you wrote in you got the instructions on how to knit it. No idea if it’s classed as official merchandise but they would have known about it and Brian didn’t get it stopped. Maybe that’s official unofficial merchandise.

I’d like to buy a really cool Beatles T-shirt but dislike the ones I can find online which are available. There is one which bugs the living crap out of me.

I’m pretty sure the Official Fan Club welcome package included pictures with facsimile autographs and a badge from early ’63.

There was certainly a badge, it was in the shape of a beetle if I remember correctly.

A Beatles advent calendar for £99.99. 
Why on earth do I want to buy this, all that’s stopping me is that I have a new bank card coming in the post so I can’t?

It looks chic but it’s probably full of shite.

 

I found an article with some of the contents

 

Yellow Submarine -shaped tea infuser, a set of coasters decorated with the Beatles’ 45 sleeve art and a Beatles Christmas tree ornament.

They could include a facsimile of a teabag Ringo drank during recording Sgt Pepper and I still would want to buy it.

Stay strong and and in a few days I’ll be back to mocking it for the overpriced tat that it contains.

That sounds way more exciting than candy like most advent calendars have where maybe I’ll like half of it. It’s too expensive, though.

Honestly I’d rather have the neat bookshelf in the backdrop with all the album cover cubbies ahdn_paul_02

I think it looks pretty good value.

While the goods included, having bought official merchandise, from the three of the 24 that have been revealed…

…the Yellow Submarine Tea Infuser:

btcal001-the_beatles_advent_calendar-teainfuser.jpgImage Enlarger

…the Christmas tree bauble:

btcal001-the_beatles_advent_calendar-christmasbauble.jpgImage Enlarger

…and the coasters:

btcal001-the_beatles_advent_calendar-coasters.jpgImage Enlarger

…would probably be between £3-£10 in the UK as official individual items, and many – if not all – are exclusive to this set, which is likely to make them more valuable as time goes by.

Even the trays that the items come boxed in can go on to be used as wall-mounted prints:

As a set of Beatles memorablia, if the other 21 are on par with the three already revealed, it looks like a reasonably priced set that, given exclusive items, will go up in value.

There is also a lux Doctor Who set coming out with a similar price point – quite cute and unique items in it. It has keyrings, coasters, a bottle-opener, a Sontaran egg cup and can be left as a storage TARDIS once you’ve taken out all the boxes.

Presume here is the right place to post.

 

What the hell is this (it is official)?

12778622-1084829495289516.jpgImage Enlarger

 

The description says its a Be@rbrick two pack but I have no idea what that means.

Available to buy from Zavvi for £184.99.

Edit:

Oh, gees! You can buy a different kind of similar one for £729.99 (I presume that is 70cm version). Who the hell pays £729.99 for that? Even if you have one of everything going you would surely think twice and opt to save your money.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I had sooooooooooo much stuff, and finally sold it all off for some new collectors to enjoy the stuff.

Now I’m Down to just the UK record collection, Rubber Soul t-shirt, and a few Blu-rays.

If that’s an all-over print, I had that same t-shirt. It was one of the very first Beatles t-shirts I owned (nearly 30 years ago) and I adored it to such near obsessional levels I’ve never been able to bin it even tho it’s now filled with holes and years beyond wearable. 
Out of everything I own Beatles-wise that’s up there in never going to be binned unless it’s physically rotting. 
Makes me want to go buy another one. 

I have also always desired John’s jacket (from the same album cover) and the hat he wore in ‘Help !.’  They always cost a fortune.

Ya, I believe it came out in the ’80s or ’90s.  They are going for over $200 bucks these days, if you can find them.  It’s my go-to shirt when I go see bands.  ALWAYs get great compliments….  I wouldn’t throw it out either @meanmistermustard
