why is there no monster hunter merch in the west,you need to import it for rediculous prices.....like the monster hunter figure builders for example....if they were available in my area id snag them in a heartbeat....does capcom plan on doing this?because its kind of a crappy idea that they had there "lets make resident evil merch readily available for anyone" but in reality they would sell more mh stuff because of its more iconic mascots...plus cats.voice your anger in the following posts!

Resident Evil is much more popular than MH in the west. There would be as many buyers if yet were to release the MH merch over here.

Unless a game is really popular, it's a big risk to sell merchandise in a region. There's a lot of MH merch in japan because it's also REALLY big over there, while MH is only somewhat popular over here. Aside from that, i feel like japan is a lot more interested in gaming merchandise (same goes for anime/movies/whatever) than the rest of the world, but i don't have any numbers on that.

Lao, have you checked out the CapcomUS store lately.. It's a slow start but with the 3DS/XL cases it's something.. Also, you fail to realize that a lot of the products like the figures and books and stuff are not directly from Capcom. Though a Capcom liscence all the items are often made by a seperate company. In most case with MH it's a japan owned company. For us to get these items here in the west a Western company would need to requier the product agreement from Capcom and distribute it here.

But.. those companies need to approach Capcom first. So at the moment your .. Upsetness is missguided.

Resident Evil indeed more popular in the west, because we all know how cool shooting zombies is, everyone does it. Call your neighbor and he/she already had shoot a zombie before. Cats? Psssst, they are supposed to be MEMES! And with Resident Evil being famous for shooting (zombies but you also did shoot people at some point) and MH being incredibly famous there in japan along with other cuddly anime things aren't we reinforcing stereotypes?

You have to understand, Monster Hunter JUST got a name for itself in the west in the last couple of years with Tri being the first real hit over here. I don't remember exactly where but I did read that they are currently testing the western waters to see if it will really take hold here. From the looks of things it's not doing to bad. Give it a few more years and you may start to see some merch at local nerd hangouts.

Look at how much merch we get for anything. 99% of the merch that is made here sucks ass and is meant for a five year old who doesn't care if the only thing it does is move it's arms or legs. Would you really want Monster Hunter figures that would be awful? I'd rather pay for the ridiculous prices for quality than readily available crap that America likes to make.

I'm not just ranting either, I work at Toys R Us. I see really bad toys everyday. I can't quite get why we don't try and make better toys for collectors. Hell collectors figures are just overpriced crap with no accessories or decent detail. 

I'm also not going to beat a dead horse over the whole popularity thing. In time we might get some MH stuff but who knows? Honestly we probably won't see anything besides some shirts at Hot Topic or something. Though, I have heard rumors that Gamestop is going to start stocking Figmas, sure they'll be $50 but that's about what you'd pay online. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll eventually get MH stuff. Just don't get your hopes up.

Actually... a game store in my area sells Monster Hunter figures. Picked up a few from the Figure builder series.

However, those are still imported. It'd be nice if we had some originally localized stuff yeah. I'm just lucky with the figures I managed to get, but importing is mostly the only way (And so expensive to ship!)

And I gotta agree that toys in the west look like shit. But hey, why would they make it beautifully detailed? kids will buy anything, right? Sadly, they are the priority of the sales when it comes to (most) toys
