LOS ANGELES -- November 16, 2021 -- Today, iam8bit announced its lineup for Black Friday 2021, which includes an exciting range of new and exclusive collectibles. Everything is on-hand and ready to ship starting on Black Friday, November 26, when iam8bit opens its virtual storefront at 9 a.m. PST. Supplies will be limited, so fans are going to want to set an alarm for it.
  • The Muppet Christmas Carol Vinyl Soundtrack: The Muppet Christmas Carol has been a longtime family favorite, and iam8bit is bringing its music to life in a magical new edition. This vinyl soundtrack -- the first time it's been available in North America on that format -- features two LPs pressed on special translucent "Ghost of Christmas" vinyl. Miles Goodman and Paul Williams' wonderful soundtrack has never sounded this good, thanks to iam8bit's exclusive remaster. It's packaged in a beautiful Muppet-themed sleeve with original art from Kevin Wilson.

  • The Witcher First Encounter Statue: iam8bit Exclusive Variant: First Encounter Geralt is a beautifully sculpted archival resin statue, lovingly hand-painted with an exquisite attention to detail. It’s a delicate and marvelous mantlepiece — inspired by a fan-favorite illustration by Tracy Tubera — and the first in an ongoing collaboration between Netflix and iam8bit. This iam8bit exclusive colorway immortalizes Geralt in stone, as if sculpted for display in the middle of Blaviken town square. 

  • The Artful Escape Of Francis Vendetti "Johnson Vendetti" 7" Single: Folk musician Johnson Vendetti casts a long shadow in The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti, both in the Colorado town this fictional artist lived and his nephew's own musical journey. This special 7" single is an in-universe artifact from Beethoven & Dinosaur's indie game, featuring Johnson Vendetti's (Luke Legs) 1952 single “The Banks of the River are Lined with Gold” and its B-side “If It Don’t Work Out.” 

  • Dustbiters: This fast-paced card game is a great stocking stuffer for fans of car combat, post-apocalyptic vibes, and quick head-to-head action. Dustbiters was designed by the folks behind video games including Minit, Ridiculous Fishing, Nuclear Throne, and more. It's easy to learn, but contains a deceptive amount of depth. If you missed out on the Kickstarter, iam8bit is selling the game for a limited time on its store.


In addition to the lineup above, iam8bit store visitors can expect some extra discount deals, the return of a few fan-favorite items, and more. iam8bit's Black Friday sale begins November 26 at 9 a.m. PST and ends Monday, November 29 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
