  1. Shirts, since we can already get accessories from Hebel Design and action figures don’t seem to really fit this series.

    i’ll defnitley buy the shirts and some of the accessories but not the action figures. I love Tmi and i’m excited for the movie or movies, but I’m too old for action figures.

    Action figures would be a little weird but shirts and some accessories like the family rings or Isabelle’s necklace, glitter make-up for Magnus fans :P, little things like that would be cool 😀

  4. Hey! You can never be too old for action figures! I’m 25 and have a decent size collection, which I keep in the boxes and display. I know I’m weird, but oh well. 🙂 Also I would love t shirts, as I also collect those.

  5. I would love a poster!

  6. I’d love to have some shirts. 🙂

  7. shirts, maybe those rubber braclets ;D agree with temp rune tattoos too though ;D makeup~ posters!!

  8. I think all the clothing should be Black represent the shadowhunters and v-necks. Bookmarks, pens that look like a stele, flashlights aka Witchlight Stone. Sorry got carried away. So excited

    EVERYTHING!! We are already getting a Codex… I LOVE the temporary runes idea!! Would definitely buy those!!

  10. the famous M ring id buy that if they made a merch of it id put it as a necklace like clary does

  11. wait is coming to an end NOOO 😦 these book are just just :O they got me through school and that ended years ago omgosh i know how the deep crazy potterheads feel (i love harry potter but still) – gulp! 😦 i feel old, sigh so glad i have food with me right now LOL

  12. Yes I’d love to have a shirt to wear! They would look pretty awesome!

  13. Yes to t-shirts, accessories, witchlight, temp. tattoos, glitter, etc. No to action figures, with one exception. Remember that little shadow hunter Jace carved out of wood when he was little? I would definately buy that if it was also made out of wood, but not some fancy plastic that has movable limbs and interchangable weapons. I collected DBZ action figures, but am definately past that stage now.

  14. Shirts, tattoos, action figures, posters! I’d buy a bit of everything!

  15. Magnus’s own glittery, warlock clothing line. This MUST happen. 🙂

  16. i want the shirts simon wears!!!! Like ” the Loch Ness Monster Adventure Club: finding answers, ignoring facts”

  17. yeah yeah yeah. where’s the cast news?

  18. shirts please! but none of that “team jace!” stuff PLEASE. just use cool quotes and graphics, but i don’t want to totally copy the team [insert boy name here] motif. it’s just so old

  19. Definately shirts, and I would Definately collect all the action figures if you guys made them. Please!

  20. IF ANY SHIRTS OR ANYTHING SAY JACE WAYLAND IMA SCREAM… am i the only one that sees him as jace herondale ..lightwood mabey

  21. Give me action figures or give me death.
