TruffleShuffle's Knightmare merchandise

Post by Drassil » Sat May 09, 2020 1:19 pm

TruffleShuffle now do Knightmare merchandise comprising T-shirts, a mug, a tote bag and a doormat.

Given TruffleShuffle's status, I'm assuming this is licensed. Previously, to my knowledge, the only way to get licensed merchandise like this was via David Rowe's Zazzle shop. Indeed, the 'exclusive' black T-shirt on TruffleShuffle, using the Labyrinths of Fear dungeoneer artwork, is very similar to the one on Zazzle.

Putting 'I survived Knightmare 1989' on the mug is an odd decision. There are only four people who could legitimately own it i.e. Chris, James, Alex and Tim from Series 3 Team 12.

Then again, had they put this on the mug -

Oooooh, nice tea!
- I might have sought legal advice.

Where the Zazzle shop refers to the 'Fright Knight', TruffleShuffle calls it 'Armoured Knight'.

The doormat is a nice idea (though perhaps not one for the immediate future). When first promoted, it was going to say 'Welcome Dungeoneer', but they saw sense and changed it to 'Enter, Stranger'.

Wasn't aware of these items, in fairness have never been compelled to purchase series items (or) from what was listed. Own a number of the books / literature episodes but as for wanting actual merchandise you can wear and present around the house, not something that has ever really come to mind. Is twenty pounds for a Series doormat a little expensive ? Yes it's a unique item to own but even so.

Of course my number one wish for buying items would be to have the series available on Blu Ray / DVD if possible. Something tangible that you can watch over and over again but realise it's not possible for whatever reason. Frustrating but all the same that's not to say it won't ever see the light of day.

I did a little investigation on these.

They are certainly not 'official'. They are not endorsed by Tim, nor is the use of the Knightmare name in any way licensed.

They could perhaps be considered 'legit' in that David Rowe appears to have an understanding with them regarding the use of his images. Some of their other images have been ripped off other places such as the cassette inlay for the computer game.
