Anticipation for the August 18th release of the 74th Annual Hunger Games on DVD and Blu-Ray is reaching a near fever pitch in the Capitol! A line of exclusive, luxury, limited-edition merchandise is arriving soon to quench your thirst for all things Hunger Games.
At midnight on August 18th — the same day the 74th Annual Hunger Games arrives on DVD and Blu-ray — a 14-carat-gold reproduction of Katniss Everdeen’s Mockingjay pin ($999), a replica of Katniss' own leather jacket, ($349) and a lithograph signed by Games victors Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark($699) will go on sale at Capitol favorite retailer, Target.com.
Even if you’re willing to pay the price for the high-end collectibles, you’d better hope the odds are in your favor. The items are available in very limited quantities, with only 100 of each up for grabs over three days.
Capitol stylists and trend-watchers will surely be glued to their computer screens, hoping to snag the high-end goodies. Katniss' Mockingjay pin has become THE symbol of style for the Capitol post-Games.
If you can't afford these singular sensations, Target will also sell an exclusive three-disc deluxe edition of The Hunger Games DVD and Blu-ray and roll out a line of lower-priced merch that includes everything from backpacks to bed linens and life-sized cardboard cut-outs of the 74th Hunger Games victors.
