Couldn't agree more...There is certainly a market for Universal's Monsters being their Disney Princess in a wayI love this so much! Universal was built on these Classic Monsters in the same way Disney was built on Mickey and Snow White. A store like this and (hopefully) the rumored "world" at the new park means they recognize there is great value in tapping into this. In a way, I'm glad the Tom Cruise Mummy failed and the Dark Universe was put on hold for a rework. It is far more compelling from a theme park perspective to utilize the classic Gothic art and set direction from the old films as a template for the new land instead of the modern super hero vibe the new films were going for.
I get their line of thinking to thin out merch across two different shops a double the amount of eyes that see the same amount of stuffI agree. Perhaps there will be more unique stuff coming in eventually.
All the more reason to get in there and buy some stuff so Universal sees that they're moving product.
