Title: Buzzr Merch
Post by: PPatters on November 20, 2020, 03:07:17 PM
It appears that Buzzr has opened its own merch shop with Amazon. You can get various t-shirts and sweatshirts for Buzzr itself, Let's Make a Deal, Tattletales, I've Got a Secret, Classic Concentration, Password, Match Game, Body Language, Family Feud, Card Sharks. To Tell The Truth, and Supermarket Sweet. You can access the site at Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/buzzr).

They've somehow uploaded the O'Hurley TTTT and Dwyer IGAS logos into the merch-making machine, which is beyond silly.

Probably done by somebody Photoshopping logos onto t-shirt JPGs that doesn't know any better.

(I am looking at my O'Hurley TTTT desk clock as I write this.)

In the banner at the top of the page, the image of the Press Your Luck board comes from what I presume is fan-made software.

Would almost have to be, since I don't ever recall seeing a Whammy in square #6.

Wouldn't surprise me, considering there's a screenshot of Curt King's Press Your Luck game on the official Buzzr lunchbox.

Iíll say this: they went with more exciting To Tell The Truth and Iíve Got a Secret logos, but completely ignored the 1970s Password logo or even deciding just to go with Password Plus or Super Password... choices.

I have come to the conclusion that Buzzr is being operated by people who care about game shows, but people who just don't know about game shows.

I freely admit that I caved and a Tattletales shirt will be in my possession shortly.   :)

Right? I'd buy Password Plus in a second.

Most (all?) of these shirts lack flash and color, just the thing that made these logos so iconic in the first place...

But I'm still tempted all the same...

I don't think you could have put it any better...they want to be better and really serve the hardcore fans but they just don't quite know how to do it...

I donít know if thatís fair. This is a small diginet dedicated to allowing a company (Fremantle) showcase its library that is otherwise sitting there. Theyíve brought us shows we havenít seen regularly in years (black and white The Price is Right, Concentration, and Classic Concentration), while keeping a lineup of favorites and doing stunts that allow us to see rarely-seen gems. I think they legit do care and spend the money that they can for what this endeavor is.

How about that Password '75 logo? The early '70s logo with all its hexagons would make a great one too.

Ultimately, the conclusion is: there were so many options for Password logos and they chose the worst one lol

I ordered a BUZZR shirt last Friday.  It arrived within the last hour.  The fit is good, the shirt material has a decent thickness.  I'd buy from them again if they ever offer a MGHS shirt.  Yes, I'm that guy.

You're valid, I'd much rather buy a weird/obscure game show logo shirt than one with, say, the Family Feud logo.  Speaking of, my Tattletales shirt arrived a few days ago and I can cosign this.  Great fit (and I'm a big person in the first place) and would definitely buy from again.

I don't mean to poo-poo their efforts...in fact, I applaud them tremendously, especially when considering how the mighty GSN has fallen over the years...I just think that they miss the mark at times and in places that could have been otherwise likely avoided...case in point, selling merch...if you want it to sell at a rapid rate, you would think they'd want it to be as attractive and colorful as to catch the buyer's eyes more easily...I mean, the buyer will bear the cost of the added colors and such so why not make your merch a must-have?

I can appreciate that. Like I said, some of their choices were off (why Passwordís 1960s logo?) and itíd be nice if the colors matched the shows better (Body Language legit had colored sweatshirts, why not recreate those?). But I do appreciate that theyíve put some effort in ó weíve never gotten stuff like this before and Iím happy weíre at least getting something now.
