If you have to own a piece of Big Trouble in Little China, here are your options, which I’ve compiled over the years:
Official Tee Shirts
Through an arrangement with a 20th Century Fox licensee, I was once able to sell official Big Trouble in Little China tee shirts and tanks. The shirts are all sold out now and the distributor sadly no longer holds the license to make more shirts…
You can find many unofficial shirt designs floating out there on the Internets…
You can find these designs at:

Years ago I acquired an actual crew jacket worn during the filming of Big Trouble in Little China in 1985/1986.
Pork Chop Express Clock
At one time I acquired an unusual desk clock shaped like Jack Burton’s Pork Chop Express, with the same Big Trouble in Little China logo from the crew jacket, and the message “As ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like this – thanks.” with a signature (Kurt Russell).
According to the Making of Big Trouble book, this was given as a gift by Kurt Russell to the cast and crew associated with the film.
Dragon of the Black Pool Letterman Jacket
After many requests, I was able to track down the same type of Letterman jacket style and color scheme worn by actor Dennis Dun as Wang Chi, and after applying an embroidery design inspired by the original, came up with a pretty nice quality replica jacket.
If you are interested in acquiring one of these jacket replicas with a design closer to the original, please contact me or visit Movie Geek Tees.

Big Trouble in Little China is currently available on DVD and Blu-Ray. Older releases (VHS, Betamax, Laserdisc) can probably be found on eBay.
The Video Game
Released in the mid-eighties, this action-fighting game lets you guide Jack Burton, Wang, and Egg Shen through the streets of Chinatown and into Lo Pan’s domain, battling the Storms along the way. Now, through the magic of of a C64 emulator (which turns your PC into a C64) you can download and play the game right now! (Note: May not work on newer Windows systems)

The Big Trouble in Little China Screenplay by W.D. Richter is a 125 page script that contains:
– Missing Storm lines
– Missing Miao Yin scenes and lines
– Extra Jack Burton monologues
– An even less serious tone than the existing film
– Explanations regarding the conflicts between the Bing Kong (Wing Kong) and Suey Sings (Blue Turbans)
– A different and less satisfying ending
