Jazwares are getting back into the swing of things with Adventure Time, Fanboy & Chum Chum, Mortal Kombat, Sonic, Street Fighter and the last remnants of Robot Chicken action figures on the pegs at Toys R Us as we speak. Now they've got a new wave of Adventure Time goodies landing and a second helping of Mortal Kombat on the way.
First up, we'll show you what Adventure Time toys you can find on the shelves right now. Just found at Toys R Us are new 2 inch pvc figure 2 packs including a Battle Pack with Finn and Jake ready for war, a Gladiator Pack with Jacked Up Finn, Mud Jake and the ghostly Gladiator from the episode Morituri Te Salutamus, and a Wizard Pack with fully powered up Finn and a mustachioed and afro'd Jake. We also spotted the dreaded, ugly as sin "beaver" Jake Football and some splat characters.
Up for pre-orders are new 2 packs including a Food Pack, Pixel Pack and Party Jake and the Party God Pack. We've also got listings for a 5 inch Lumpy Space Princess and Marceline the Vampire Queen. No pics of these items so far.
Jazwares also dropped some advance images on us today for their Mortal Kombat line! Say hello to the 6 inch Reptile action figure and Deluxe Shao Kahn action figure, featuring a hammer accessory for Kahn and removable mask for Reptile. While I do wish these figures were a little more detailed (both paint and sculpt wise), it's nice to see more video game action figures on the pegs.
It's also been announced that Jazwares will be tackling Cartoon Network's OTHER mega popular cartoon series; Regular Show! I sincerely hope all this success will lead to better paint applications, more detail and all around better toys! I'm a massive Adventure Time fan and I've passed on all the toys at retail so far. I hope that tells you something. Make great toys and you'll own my bank account.
