iam8bit Releases Monument Valley Capsule Collection, Gifts for Your Favorite Game
November 25, 2015

iam8bit and ustwo have teamed up to debut an exclusive line of Monument Valley merchandise just in time for the holiday season, featuring the mind-bending visuals of the game and its beloved protagonist, the princess Ida. Awarded Apple’s “Game of the Year,” Monument Valley peacefully explores concepts of sacred geometry and the journey to restore a labyrinthine world to its original shape. The collection reflects the course of Ida’s odyssey and the tranquility of her environment. Starting today, fans can pre-order the capsule collection of Monument Valley clothing, hats, pins, and plushies directly from the iam8bit online store.


Enthusiasts can show off their fandom for the award-winning game with t-shirts lovingly crafted by Monument Valley’s own designer, Ken Wong, featuring extractions of the serene, Escher-esque monuments, princess Ida, her obliging companion Totem and the mysterious Crow People.





Fans of this cult-favorite game can collect the Monument Valley trinity of soft plushies and stylish pins. Princess Ida, the Crow and Totem will all be available in time to be the perfect holiday stocking stuffer. The plush Ida and Crow sit, stand and chill charmingly on shelves, and each block of the Totem ACTUALLY SPINS, just like in the game.

The t-shirts will retail for $25, the pins for $10, the plushies for $22.50 (Ida & Crow) and $35 (Totem). All orders placed prior to December 15 will arrive in time for the holidays.


As a special “Black Friday” promotion, running November 25 through “Cyber Monday” on November 30), the Ida, Crow and Totem plushies will be bundled together at a discount: $70 for all three (a savings of $10).

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
