    I'm going to end up spending so much money in there. I do hope they eventually roll out some more men's t-shirt designs for the Classic Monsters, because the women seem to have a lot more variety.

    Also, the Bates Motel stationery is an item I never realized I needed until right now.

    And putting the Telepods in there is such a wonderful tip of the cap to the old version of the Makeup Show.

    The new shop is everything honestly...Went in yesterday

    I do wish for some more exclusive horror merch that is only available in that store

    You can pretty much find everything in the store around the parks

    I 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've watched a couple of videos of the new store today. Had only seen some pictures before. The stuff on sale looks awesome, but it seems like most of the shirts are ladies. I'd like to see them bring in some more men's shirts as well

    It's interesting for me to see what's the same as Hollywood and what merch is different. I'd say 80-90% of it is what Hollywood already has had for a while, since HHN. But wonder if we'll eventually get the 10-20% that seems new.

    For a while, some of the HP merch was exclusive to Orlando. Only now, three years later, is Hollywood finally getting caught up in some of the HP Orlando merch. I've been surprised there isn't more consistent synergy in the merch between the two coasts.

    Couldn't agree more...There is certainly a market for Universal's Monsters being their Disney Princess in a way

    It fits and feels organic to their brand

    I also feel like HHN has shown Universal that it's ok to have the two elements interact in their day product

    I 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.

    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 stuff

    Also, Sci-Fi works better in the MIB store

    A lot of the stuff they have brought in here looks like it used to be in the film vault. Have they replaced the film vault with something else now?

    No, there's still a lot of UCM stuff in there.
