Posted August 6, 2012
Are you a fan of The Hunger Games? Well, this isn't for you.
This is for superfans, people who are willing to spend big bucks for a special collection of keepsakes at Target.
Here's the deal: "Premium items" ranging from $349 to $999 (Target has never offered licensed products at this price point, notes the release) will be introduced one per day beginning on Aug. 18 to coincide with the DVD release of the movie.
The keepsakes, available in very limited quantities exclusively on Target.com, include:
- a 14-karat gold replica of heroine Katniss Everdeen's famed Mockingjay pin, with 100 available at $999 each.
- leather replicas of Katniss' hunting jacket, with 100 available at $349 each.
- The Hunger Games lithographs autographed by 10 top cast members including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, with 100 available for $699 each.
Target's deluxe edition of The Hunger Games for DVD and Blu-ray features a collectible case and 45 minutes of exclusive content, including personal video diaries from the cast. The special DVD ($20.99) and Blu-ray ($25.99) are available for pre-order now at Target.com/HungerGames.
Don't worry: Target is also offering a more affordable ($6.99 to $37.99) assortment of Hunger Games goodies, from backpacks and lunch boxes to jewelry, pillow cases and life-size cardboard cut-outs of movie characters Katniss, Peeta and Gale.
