A big superhero movie having merchandise isn’t news. Every movie gets t-shirts and Funko pops and all that stuff. But, for Captain Marvel, Marvel’s first superhero film with a woman in the lead, the studio is going above and beyond. There’s jewelry, there’s a bicycle, there are amazing jackets, and it’s all so gorgeous, it may just bring a tear to your eye.

At any rate, it’ll definitely make fans reach for their wallets. The official Marvel website shared all of these images and we won’t post them all, but here are just a few of the highlights of this awesomeness.

And again, that’s just a little bit. There are toys, Lego, Funko, and way more apparel. It’s a truly impressive line up for what we hope is a truly impressive movie.

It’s especially impressive when you remember back to just a few years ago, when Disney all but forgot the lead character of another big, blockbuster movie, Rey, in that film’s merchandising. Maybe, just maybe, things are actually changing. See more merch at these two links.

Captain Marvel opens March 8. Check the sites of the appropriate brands for more info on the merch.

Here’s something interesting: you know all these red and blue, with yellow star designs? That comes directly from Jamie McKelvie’s redesign of Carol Danver’s costume when she became Captain Marvel. A redesign that, initially, Marvel didn’t want. They had a completely different costume designed, but Kelly Sue DeConnick didn’t think it was that good and wanted Jamie McKelvie (the artist for Young Avengers and The Wicked + The Divine) to design a new costume, but Marvel didn’t want to pay for him. So DeConnick said that she would pay McKelvie for the design herself and if Marvel didn’t like it, they didn’t have to use it. McKelvie created the iconic costume, Marvel loved it, and now we have all this merch.

And that was your Captain Marvel fact for the day.
