Champloo--the Merchandise

<====UPDATED JULY 2009====>
Be sure to see our much expanded Bookshelf and Figures & Toys Sections!

This is by no means all of the stuff that's out there; think of it as a substantial sampler of the available goodies. There's been a surprising surge of licensed Champloo merch in the past year, a very encouraging sign that even in the absence of new series material, SC's fandom and its commercial viability are alive and well.

So...money burning a hole in your pocket? Desperate to know what cool Champloo stuff has been released that you may have missed? Welcome to a handy guide. We may not be able to tell you where to get some of this stuff, but it's out there..

IGN called "Sidetracked" for the PlayStation 2 "an enjoyable, sword-filled, very odd adventure"; GamePro wrote "One part break dancing samurai, one part insane musical combo fighting system, combine and serve", and GameZone commented "only in this game will you encounter a group of gangster monkeys". Make you want to know more? I sure did, and our own Laura Bryannan delivered.
