OK...you've got your zombie fix for the week. NOW we take a dip into Cartoon Network waters. Jazwares blew my mind this year with their Regular Show toy line, exploring nearly every awesome episode's key moment in action figure perfection. Why they don't spend that sort of effort on Adventure Time is beyond me. IT'S ONLY THE MOST POPULAR CARTOON ON THE PLANET!! Have they kicked into high gear this year and given Adventure Time the spectacular toy line it deserves? Let's find out! Here are the lineups. We've omitted the stuff we knew was out already...
2" Collectible Figure Packs include the Pixel Pack and Food Pack
2" Deluxe Candy People pack and Fiona and Cake pack
3" Finn and Jake Comic Book Pack
3" Finn and Princess Bubblegum
3" Finn with Slime Princess
5" Action Figure Marceline with Axe and Accessories
5" Action Figure Lumpy Space Princess with Accessories
5" Action Figure Ice King with Accessories
5" Action Figure Finn with a new face and 2 swords
Still no word on that Gutgrinder Jake we saw back at Toy Fair 2012
Note: Are you baffled that there are more characters you can get as plush than as figures? Factor in that plush is cheaper to make than figures and there's your answer.
For roleplay, we get a Deluxe Fiona hat as well as a deluxe Finn Sword with lights and sounds, 24" Jake Sword, Marceline's Axe Bass, and a Jake Shield with sounds. There are also listings for Role Play Masks of Finn and Jake and Roleplay Glasses (??) of Finn, Jake and Lumpy Space Princess.
And now.. Regular Show...pardon me if some of this stuff is out already. I'm not as well versed in Regular Show toys as I am with Adventure Time...
Thumb Wrestlers Assortment : Mordecai vs. Forearmegeddon and Rigby vs. Urge
4" Episodic Figure Assortment : Mordecai with Guitar and Fanny Pack, Rigby with Guitar and Hat, Skips with Fists of Justice and Battle Harness, Benson with Walkman and Rage Blast, Pops with Ulti-Meatum Burger and Wallet and Muscle Man with High Five Ghost and Bandana
6" Slack Pack Figure Assortment : Mordecai, Rigby, Muscle Man, Pops, Skips and Benson
Plush includes Muscle Man, Hi-Five Ghost, Benson and Skips, and a 10 inch Pullstring Plush assortment with sound featuring Mordecai and Rigby
Role Play: Glasses Assortment with Mordecai and Rigby
This is by no means the be all and end all of release lists for Jazwares this year, and seeing as how we saw some of that Adventure Time stuff at Toy Fair 2012, there's no telling what may actually make it out this year...so I'd just look at this list as a "What Could Be" lineup and if you like something in particular on it, be sure to be very vocal about it on Jazwares' Facbook Page. They are always watching!
Note: This is not a rumor list. Just wanted to make that clear!
