There are Gold Chestfuls of real-life loot out there that celebrate everything from the Traveler to the Tower's own Sweeper Bot.

Best Destiny merchandise

1. Destiny Ghost Vinyl - Generalist Shell

The best all-round Destiny keepsake

Reasons to buy

+
Screen-accurate
+
In-game code
+
Affordable

Reasons to avoid

Doesn't 'do' anything

Sometimes the simple things are best. This vinyl Destiny Ghost is pretty much exactly as your robot helper appears in the game, although it doesn't unlock ancient Hive doors or feature the dulcet tones of Nolan North (or Peter Dinklage, for that matter). To make up for that lack of lockpicking skill, this figure also includes a special in-game item code. It'll look rad on your desk or shelf, too.

Better yet, there are a load of different designs available if you want something a little more adventurous. You can choose from the Hunter (opens in new tab), Cayde-6 (opens in new tab), Kill Tracker (opens in new tab), Lambda (opens in new tab), Last City (opens in new tab), or Moon of Saturn (opens in new tab) shells.

2. Cayde-6 Funko Pop

The best Destiny Funko

Reasons to buy

+
Sassy pose
+
That massive noggin
+
Cute

Reasons to avoid

-
No chicken/ramen

Of course you can get Funko Pop versions of everyone from Zavala and Oryx to Xur, and of course they’re ridiculously adorable (d’awwww, wook at the wittle Taken King!). However, our favorite may just be this miniature, big-headed version of Cayde-6. That sassy stance captures his character perfectly. Rest in peace, sweet prince. *sniffs*

3. Destiny Grimoire Anthology (Volume I)

The best Destiny merchandise for lore-fans

Reasons to buy

+
Gorgeous faux-leather cover
+
Easier to read than Grimoire cards
+
Unseen artwork

Reasons to avoid

-
Not enough new art

If you're a fan of Destiny's backstory, this new anthology series (bound with luxurious faux leather and featuring unseen art) is a must-have purchase. It gathers intriguing lore from the earliest days of the universe to the modern, Guardian-filled present, and that includes each Book of Sorrow - the Hive race's tragic origin. Because we're returning to the space-zombie strongholds with Shadowkeep, it's worth revisiting their beginnings for greater insight on what makes them tick.

If you enjoy this one, there's also a second volume ('Fallen Kingdoms (opens in new tab)') coming soon.

4. Lord Shaxx McFarlane Toys 10" Deluxe Action Figure

The best Destiny action figure

Reasons to buy

+
So, so detailed
+
Excellent paint-job
+
Captures the character perfectly

Reasons to avoid

-
Not many poses

Lord Shaxx is the face (figuratively speaking) of Destiny 2's multiplayer Crucible mode, and this McFarlane figure effortlessly brings him to life - judgy hands-on-hips pose and all. Seriously, I can't get over how detailed and screen-accurate this toy is. You'd almost expect him to start yelling motivational quips at you, just like he does in the game. At $30 or so, it's also a steal.

5. Destiny Razer peripherals

The best Destiny accessories

Reasons to buy

+
Subtle Destiny theme
+
It's all genuinely excellent
+
Headset compatible with consoles

Reasons to avoid

-
Expensive

If you’ve been one of the patient ones who's managed to resist playing on consoles, congratulations, you definitely deserve Razer’s range of Destiny 2 PC accessories. Razer’s slick Deathadder Elite gaming mouse (arguably the best gaming mouse (opens in new tab) out there) has had a Guardian-influenced paintjob, while the already lovely Ornata Mecha Membrane gaming keyboard with wrist rest now has a lovely Destination Map design. And don’t worry if you haven’t got a PC, the Razer Man O’War Tournament Headset works with PS4 and Xbox One, and comes with the slick Destiny 2 logo on each earcup as well as 7.1 virtual surround sound and thumping 50mm drivers. What better way to to hear the thrum of a Graviton Lance? Throw in the mouse mat and the whole kit is fit for a Guardian who has wants some rad real-life loot.

6. Destiny: The Official Colouring Book

The best Destiny merchandise for artistic types

Reasons to buy

+
Coloring, but Destiny
+
Relaxing

Seriously, who doesn't love coloring?

Downside? There IS no downside

Sick of not finding just the right shaders for your Hunter or Titan? Well you can change all that with colouring pens. Yep, it’s time to go analogue and pick up this official colouring book full of Guardians just waiting to suffer for your creativity. Pink ghosts? Sure. Zebra striped Cayde-6? Why not? Maybe you can even cheer Banshee-44 up with some leopard print? If anyone can do it, you can Guardian. Maybe start with the Light colours…

7. Mega Bloks Destiny Arcadia Jumpship

The best Destiny Mega Bloks set

Reasons to buy

+
Easily fits on your desk or a shelf
+
Adorably blocky
+
Teeny Warlock

Reasons to avoid

-
A bit fiddly

It seems like a lifetime ago that we found our first jumpship - banged up though it was - and took off for the Tower. This cute set celebrates that iconic spacecraft in blocky form, and you'll even get a tiny Warlock and Ghost combo to go with it. Ah, the memories...

8. The Art of Destiny

The best Destiny art book

Reasons to buy

+
Fascinating insights
+
Beautiful artwork
+
Extensive

Reasons to avoid

Still pricey

The story behind Destiny is potentially more fascinating than the one we got on screen; the game went through many forms before settling on what we have today. This art-filled tome covers the project's inception and evolution from fantasy to sci-fi, and it's a truly interesting read. Plus, that concept art is gorgeous.

Once you're done with this book, don't miss its Destiny 2-themed follow-up, The Art of Destiny: Volume 2 (opens in new tab). It's a little shorter, but still packed with awesome, illuminating work.
