Tekken Merchandise

Besides ‘playing’ Tekken ‘collecting’ Tekken stuff became a hobby of me too. Maybe I’m still into it even more than before! First of all I bought Hwoarang’s Tekken3 actionfigure in NY, (that was my coolest holiday ever!) Cause I could not get it anywhere in here in Holland. I searched the whole of NY, have seen all corners of the city, but even there I had trouble finding it … I still had 1 hour to go before going back to Holland, but suddenly I was standing in a normal, very little ordinary game shop, and what did I see there? All sort of actionfigures including Hwoarang !! I went completely crazy, my day could not go wrong anymore. I was so happy! After a while (back in Holland again) I saw it in another game shop (X-Com) .. I decided to stay cool, I thought ‘what the hell, I’ll just buy another one’ !! And now they’re standing pleasantly with the rest of my Hwoarang / Tekken collection .

The Tekken3 Jin actionfigure was very hard to find, though all other actionfigs were very easy to find. I have not bought all characters, cause I do not think they’re all nicely made. f.i I do not think Paul looks too good, and Yoshimitsu could have been better too, just as King, and I do not like True Ogre as well. Whatever, does not matter!

To get the Jin actionfigure I decided to sign up on ebay and buy it there. It’s as easy as that, and since then I’m completely mad about ebay..It’s very addictive, you know!

What I also bought on ebay (or other sites);

  * Hwoarang side decal art! It’s huge! I use it as a poster. I put it on a big black paper. It looks good, and I’m really happy with it! I look at it all day, especially at night, while laying in bed …

* Namco official collection cards sealed box (contains 20 packs, 8 random cards in each pack). Besides Tekken, Tekken2 Tekken3 and there are more games mixed into it (by Namco). The box is really beautiful, and so are the packs. I do not know if I want a new box again, or just a few packs, to get the complete collection. I’ll see! Now I’m trying to get a box of the ‘Tekken official collection cards’.

* Tekken3 keychains (set # 1; Hwoarang, Jin, Yoshimitsu, King, Lei, Law, Eddy, Paul, Nina and Xiaoyu). They’re just so cute and cool !!

* Tekken official collection cards (3 packs). Sadly enough I discovered that there was not ONE Hwoarang card in it … that was really dissapointing, though I was very happy with the remaining cards, they’re just great in your collection and they look beautiful. But whenever I get the chance to buy / get more cards, I will buy them until I’ve got all the cards incl. Hwoarang!

* Tekken4 + Tekken3 poster and a Tekken4 shirt, from Namstore. The posters are really nice, glossy and huge !! The shirt of Tekken4 is cool too, I love to wear it, not all the time ofcourse, cause I’m very careful with the stuff I collect, I do not want scratches or spots on it, so I wear it only on special days , = P

* 12 Hong Kong Tekken3’s manga; vol. 6,7,8,10,11,13,14,15,17,19,21 and 26. Okay, they may be Chinese, so I can not read the shit of it, but who cares? I love to turn over the pages, the art is beautiful.

* Tekken3 manga doujinshi. When I saw this book on ebay I did not hestitate and bought it immediately. It looks cool and it’s funny too!

* Tekken4 original soundtrack CD. Yeah, this is just great. I love the music in Tekken4! Especially I like tracks such as ‘parking garage’ and the music from Hwoarang’s…

Feelings For Tekken

Basically!! my feelings for Tekken are huge!! I fell in love with Tekken 3 in 98 and from then on I still love it.If you dont love Tekken you can not be a Tekken master..cos if you love it you adapt to all the moves and they stay in your head for years to come and you always want to play it all the time.!!
The character Hwoarang is the best fighter on any game on any computer. he’d kick hell out of all the street fighters,all the DOA fighters,all the virtua fighters everyone in the world basically!!! As for Jin Kazama he is my second favourite cos he looks cool for one (not as cool as Hwoarang) he hits hard! and he will kick the shit out of all the other fighters in all the other games aswell..
There is loads of Hwoarang and Jin fans out there who probably think the same as I..and I bet you’ve all tried to copy there ways ie.hair cuts,hair colours etc…!! so any way enough blabbering!! I will Discuss more about this matter in my personal section! aswell it might lead into my Tekken master tips section located in Hwoarang and Jin’s main page .
