Interesting thread! I feel this deserves a bump up, to perhaps gather in more opinions and votes for the poll, in regards to the merchandise pricing in the MusicToday store.
The way I voted for this poll is the following:
$11 - $15 for the Red-Echelon and Black Glyph Wristbands
$21 - $25 for T-Shirts
$36 - $40 for Hooded Sweatshirts
Of course, I find the prices they currently charge for the wristbands and t-shirts a bit ridiculous, so my votes were influenced on the maximum I could envision myself spending for each category.
Indeed, I did go check out some other band's official online stores to compare prices, and it was sorrowful to see that Thirty Seconds to Mars prices seem to be double of what other bands charge for a similar item. *such as t-shirts and rubber band wristbands*
To simply name one example, this Aftermath rubber bracelet
from the My Chemical Romance online store only sells for $7.99, while one of the same size in the Thirty Seconds to Mars online store goes for $15! The rubber bracelets of smaller widths go for $13.
Additionally, at the Blink-182 online store, you can get a rubber bracelet AND A MATCHING, RUBBER RING
for only $4.90!
Hmm, and I cannot help but wonder that if the glyphic rings, one day, miraculously make it into the MusicToday store after years of campaigning, if they will be wonderful, great quality *perhaps silver or white-gold casted*
rings, or something along the lines of a rubber one, which could be obtained from a quarter machine...?
