Live classic synth pop tracks you might have forgotten about.

So far it seems it is a massive secret! This tour has very little info from fellow fans, setlists take a long time to appear, videos are often the big hits (yawn).
I hope the programme is good as the march overall is not really that amazing, but then I was complaining about the opposite back in 1992 when there was sooo much great stuff and my
funds only allowed to buy a few of the things. That programme was just beautiful, as were many of the other things on sale.

Well 1992 was a whole giant production- like a broadway show. We will never get anything like that again, much less the Merch. But, being the environment now, you would figure they would have a whole range of stuff to offer since that is where the money is made these days. Even live recordings after the show are missing on this tour

Hmm, seems like a fair bit of merch this time around (and at that link). Although, I think merch rarely goes outside the box these days. We aren't likely to see condoms again, for instance.

Enough so that fans are making their own (Check UEC).

I know that back in those days the produced a vast amount of merch, and that meant the quality was way beyond what other artists offered. The whole thing was just get.
Back to the here and now, i think the march is a bit too generic, bands with smaller audiences have better and cleverer stuff out. I am not saying that I won't be buying anything, but I will limit it to one or two items.
As for programmes apart from the fantastic 1992 one, I think my favourite is the TinyTour one with all the bad reviews and of course the The Erasure Show one which had lots of little stories of fans inside ...... They were always just so down to earth.

Well, merch today is like corporate promo products - same selection, and different logos applied. It IS sad that is the standard now, but even back in the day, the most notable items ended up being promotional and not retail.

The one item type that seems to have been a standard which I had expected to easily continue is the enamel or die-cast pins. It's crazy, since the last WBG keychain fit the bill, yet wasn't made as a pin. The last we had was the skull in the TVF boxset. Frankly, I prefer the enamel ones like Innocents and Wild!, but either way, we ought to have these. The home-pressed button pins are no comparison whatsoever. Anyone can make them, and some do. Just check eBay.

Well, there's the tour scarf, but at least that came back. The shame is that it's really nothing compared to the ones from the heyday. I wanted one emblazoned with the band logo just like every footie scarf out there, but this looks like another corporate promo style type.

With the advent of digital printing, things seem more pedestrian in nature. I would imagine that since album sales profits are comparably low these days, that they would offer a vast array of things to pick from

Technically, the digital printing you're speaking of is geared to certain types of items. That's the cause of the homogeneity to what's offered from one band to the next that I mentioned. Even the custom embroidery that's present on the tour scarf is fits within the size template that one would find on a hat or polo shirt breast.

These days, we really only get the diversity of merchandise we do due to infrastructure; not potential sales.

As for how much the band makes from merchandise sales, you can get a better idea from seeing the wholesale prices from a company like BandWear who does the merch for Pledge:

http://store.bandwear.com/PledgeMusic/Bandwear-Pledge-Catalog-2.pdf

It's not BMerch, but probably comparable.
