Fallout Original Amazon Series Soundtrack: A Musical Journey

As the Fallout Original Series Soundtrack – which you can now get on Amazon – proves, everything there is deeply melancholy, caught between a past it can’t reclaim and a future it can’t contemplate. This two-LP release is as memorable as the series itself, and it was composed by the amazing Ramin Djawadi.

Limited Edition Fallout Lithographs: A Visual Feast

Amazon is still a treasure trove of collector’s items, even plugging the pre-order of the limited edition Fallout lithographs by the artist Kevin Tong, who has immortalised the series in a deeply nostalgic, textured print. Surely the pride of any collection.

Embracing Fandom with AMAZON

Through Amazon, this series and others can now invite their fans to decorate their homes with their favourite characters and storylines, consume other series’ merchandise alongside their own, and explore a wider array of goods than they could ever imagine, all designed to celebrate and expand their chosen universe. Amazon not only creates room for cults: it promotes and elevates cults in unprecedented ways. Through its personalised suggestions for viewing, reading and consuming, Amazon has fundamentally transformed how we interact with (and sometimes even celebrate) our favourite series. Amazon offers every fan of a given series the ability to communicate their passions to the world through an enormous selection of merchandise, collectibles, and special bundles. Where there was once just a TV show, a book, or a movie, there is now a dedicated space in which every fan’s desire to externalise their passion can come to life.

Diversity, quality, and accessibility are the company’s virtues, and it remains a champion of collector culture A fan of fetishising the desolate dystopia of Fallout? Scoping out the Assassin’s Creed universe of blades, gambits and broken hearts? Mastering the challenge dungeons of Dark Souls? Amazon – it turns out – is your gateway drug. Next week, more awesome from the Amazonian universe, where the market reigns and fandom has no limits.
