Jazwares Explores Minecraft

For a game as monumentally huge as Minecraft, it's baffling that there have only been a handful of collectibles on the market to feed your need for 8 bit awesome. Jazwares is about to change all that with everything from plush to papercraft to straight up action figures. Here's the run down...

The game has over 56 million registered users, over 7.6 million Youtube video uploads with the most popular viewed 111 million times, over 6.7 million Facebook fans and over 1.5 million Twitter followers. Minecraft is the hottest search term on Google ahead of LEGO, Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    You might wanna do a little more research. There's tons of Minecraft collectables on the market.

    1. Must be foreign market? I've been to every Toy Fair for over 10 years and only saw the foam pick axe and sword and the 3 vinyl toys. Also, I didn't do research. It's an article on Jazwares collectibles. If you want to show us more, be my guest.

  2. Is Lego a foreign market? There's also way more than the foam items and vinyls. Might wanna check your local Target.

  3. Is here any photos of them out of the package? And how much articulation does each figure have?

    1. Cooking up an out of package pic of at least one of the figures. They are sort of like block figures with very basic 5 points of articulation.

  4. A cow? All I see are mooshrooms.

  5. Great list, disregard the haters. Minecraft items are very hard to come buy, the lack of supplies for birthday parties is sad, the could make a killing! Thanks for the list, toys r us just started carrying some of the 'core' items.

  7. I have seen most of these but would love to find the Core Animal Mob Pack. The Core figures are all over the place but I can't find that Animal Mob Pack anywhere on the internet.

  8. The Zombie has an Iron Ore block, not Redstone.
