Just thought I'd point out to some people some of the FMA merchandise available online and in comic/anime stores in North America.

This store lists most of that which is available - pay close attention to the Armor!Al plushies, he is holding a little kitty in his hand, and he comes in two sizes. Comparing the prices on that site to the ones at the shop I usually go to (Canadian), the prices are about equal, though you will pay more for shipping. But, there are more offical sites to buy from. This is just one I've browsed.

I so wanted to buy Movie!Ed and Movie!Roy plushies, but they were $30 each. Theya ren't listed on that site, but theyre the same as the series versions, just dressed as per the movie. There's also Series versions of everyone too, in small and large sizes. I also fell for a little pale green Kakashi wallet there, I may go back and buy it. :p That or Naruto's frog coin purse. The headbands and armsplints were too weird.

Since I am broke and try to stem my geekiness, I bought the Ed from this set, though they had them all there. Not a very good picture, but there's Anime Pride, Lust, Envy, Huges, Izumi and Ed. If I get another it'll be Izumi, her figurine was very nice. They also came with a stand, and some bits are removeable. Ed's long jacket can become a short one. I can also pull him apart at the waist, but that's a tad bit private... >.>

Anyway, just telling people to keep an eye out and that it's popular enough now that you can probably go to your local comic store and buy/order some peices. You can also buy different Chapters of the Manga in a box set that come with figurines. I saw Volume 4 with a shirtless Ed, and one with an Armor Al, too. Since the owner of the shop knows me, he got mad when I told him I'd downloaded everything. :p

My Ed is now sitting ontop of my monitor beside my stuffed BaaBaa from Neopets. ... And yes, I am a grown adult.

Also, I'll mention I flipped through one of the official North American mangas there and a little booklet fell out... advertising a FMA book. I don't remember the title, something about the desert, but keep an eye out for that.

The Al kitty plushie is just <3

I so want the Al pillow but can't find of a reputable(sp) store with low prices... do you know of one? @_@ (I saw it in a store in person like, few weeks ago for fourteen dollars but I just found out the store closed. >_< Doh!)

I have no idea of online sites... Like I said, I know people who run an anime store so I get everything from them. ^^; Try looking up some of the bigger anime conventions and follow thier links to the shops that sell things there. Will probably be able to find something through them, and possibly some discounted things left over from cons.

Okies, alright, thanks. X_x I'm just unclear on stores because I've been hearing stuff like one store's not so great. (I can't even remember the name of it at all!)

If you'd like I got my Al pillow from Suncoast Video for $14.

Yeah, that's the problem. Was talking about that Suncoast. :/ It's gone. Augh.

Your best bet is to try Ebay, I've seen quite a few Al pillows on auction at the moment. Yesasia is a pretty decent site too.

That's it. Does it just novel-ify a few of the manga chapters, or is it something else?

The first novel is where Russell and Fletcher Tringham first appeared in; it's what the two episodes "The False Elric Brothers" were based on. (It's slightly different than the anime.) The second novel has been released too, it's called "The Abducted Alchemist" and it's quite possibly the funniest thing I've read in quite a while. It's not covered in either the anime OR the manga, so out of the two I definitely recommend Abducted Alchemist.

I'll second that reco, I was 'meh' about the first novel but the second was great. Seems like maybe the translators hit their stride more with that one.
