Elitist Collectible

Fandom crosses over to exclusivity with items based on in-jokes

Implications - The nature of fandom and the idea of deeply loving, and connecting with others, over a niche interest has clear social motivations in that it encourages a sense of belonging. This practice has shifted from niche to elite, appealing to adult consumers who bond over insider knowledge within a specific behavioral tribe. This reinforces the idea that consumers are looking to bond over deeper connections than surface commonalities.
