This Reynard City merchandise blog is partially inspired by the fab people at Badge Base, who are responsible for these awesome badges!

Made In Norwich Castle Mall 6-7th July
One place you will be able to get Reynard City merchandise will be at our Made In Norwich Castle Mall stand. We are in the process of ordering items for this, so now is the opportunity if you would like to pre-order items. In the case of the hats, we need to order in at least £20 worth so we can cover the cost of embroidery, while if we get a lot of orders for one particular T-shirt design we will be able to reduce costs (though if you want a specific image let us know!)
If you can’t come to Norwich you will still be able to pre-order items as well (for outside the UK we will have to add a bit extra for delivery).
£8 Comic plus digital extra package
£10 Comic with gift (Chocolate bar, postcard, sticker, badge)
Also for people coming to the stand there will be a £1 Lucky Dip (one free go and digital extra package if you spend over £10) plus there will be some separate mystery prizes for anyone who comes in costume/wears fox ears and poses for a pic (please note- Going “as yourself” , carrying a book and calling yourself a storyteller or any other lame variant doesn’t count!)
My dream Reynard City merchandise
So I briefly mention it in the video, but one thing that I would love are Reynard City action figures. For example, one where AK Girl can have different clip on items to represent her different powers, a hook gun for Hyper Rob similar to the Jurassic Park toys I had as a kid or a Wondervixen pole with a light representing her taser at the top.
Also while we’re here check out these great toy chatting Youtubers!
A big thing for us with this stall is to be part of the Made In Norwich ethos. As much as possible we want to support local businesses and creative talent. I am very grateful to Minuteman Press, Saffire Chocolates, Green Farm Coffee, Visualise Web Design and a wide group of fantastic businesses that have supported this project. On top of that local creative talent like Hayley Evenett and Raye Springall have been crucial in helping us get out there.
The more help we get the more we will be able to give to our artists, who have worked hard and deserve all the support we can give them. If you would like to be a part of this, find out more on our advertise page. Also, if you run a local business, please come down to the stall on the day so you can take a picture with us (bonus points if you come in costume!)
Cameo appearance package
As well as our Reynard City merchandise, we do have one big thing left- there is only one slot for a cameo appearance in Reynard City Chronicles Issue 2: The Liar Revealed. Joe Draco Petterson brings a style half way between European comics like Asterix and Lucky Luke with a bit of Don Bluth thrown in, while the story concerns Sal (aka Wondervixen)’s mysterious past- as the name suggests, all is not what it seems and that past comes back to haunt the heroes in the worst possible away!
For £100 (around $130) you can get your own cameo package- not only do you appear in the comic, but you will also get an exclusive Fox Box merchandise package and previews of the work in progress before anyone else. A big thank you to Dr Jess Austin, Rev701 and Leigh Reeves (Morton Reeves estate agent) who have all booked their slots (book yours via the Paypal or email email@example.com if you would like to do a bank transfer)
6000 followers/ writing contest update
For those of you wondering John Paul Guerra is working on the 6000 followers video, we just need to put the last bits of that together. Thanks to everyone who contributed, we really appreciate that!
We will also have a site update soon where you will be able to read a collection of work we got from the writing contest, again really impressed and big thanks to Avery K Tingle for being our guest judge. While we’re talking about writing, shoutout to Melissa Compton and all the #WritingCommunity people on Twitter!
