J!NX will be taking pre-orders for the first seven characters in the Overwatch Ultimate Hoodie line beginning today (June 27th 2017) at 10AM PT (1PM ET). But, you best hurry...because that pre-order window will close on June 28th or when they sell out (whichever happens first). Available in XSmall through 4XL, the seven characters available are: D.Va, Lucio, Genji, Roadhog, Zarya, Reinhardt, and Widowmaker. That's also the order that they're displayed in the above photo. (My favorite? Maybe Roadhog) Each Ultimate Hoodie will run $59.99 and begin shipping between August 7th and October 8th, depending on the chosen hoodie.
Oh man, Rick! What are these? Well, Morty, these are Rick and Morty mini figures straight from Dimension 35C. Get yours while they last. We're no stranger to scary situations, so we'll manage.
J!NX has released a new blind bag series - the Rick and Morty Blind Bag Mini Figures. The series consists of seven different figures, including Rick, Morty, Tiny Rick, Summer, Happy Meeseeks, Sad Meeseeks, and Rick's Spaceship. (They measure in around 2 inches tall) Each blind bag can be purchased for $4.99.
The Rick and Morty review train continues to roll with a line of plush figures released by the folks at J!NX. Featuring most of the main characters from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim show, the series of 7 to 11 inches tall plushies allow you to cuddle with Rick or Morty or even Mr. Poopybutthole.
J!NX was nice enough to send us a number of those plush toys as well as a nice Meeseeks reversible beanie (great for making your kids think you’ve completely lost it) that switches from a happy and angry face on it.
The show has two seasons in the bag, with Season 3 slated to debut in March 2017. The characters from the show that are available in J!NX’s plush line include: the often inebriated mad scientist Rick; his grandson Morty; Morty’s oft goofed-upon father Jerry; Morty’s older sister Summer; the creature who lives to serve one purpose, and then die – Meeseeks (in Happy, Sad, and Caddy versions); and a longtime friend of the Smith family – Mr. Poopybutthole.
Each plush is made of velboa fabric. I actually had to look up that fabric, since I had never heard of it. It’s described as “low pile, faux fur fabric”. In other words, it’s pretty soft. And it’s probably what that faux cheetah skin throw rug you have in front of your fireplace is made out of.
As far as the likenesses, they all resemble their onscreen counterparts. Personally, I like Meeseeks and Rick the most since they are my favorite animated (and therefore plush) characters. As with most plush toys, J!NX went with mitten hands for this line. There’s nothing wrong with that. And there are some vinyl elements, such as on Jerry’s shirt and the Caddy Meeseeks bib.
Overall, I really enjoy this line. With the collectible pickings slim for Rick and Morty fans (although they are picking up), a quality plush line is always welcome. And at $14.99 for each plush (most of them measure in around 10 inches tall), it won’t break that bank to pick up a few of your favorites.

J!NX: $14.99 each
J!NX has launched two new lines of apparel for gamers: the J!NX Brand, a collection of core clothing featuring comfortable fits and soft fabrics inspired by the upbeat and relaxed attitude of gaming, and J!NX Pro, an original label catering specifically to professional gamers and esports enthusiasts. Both lines build upon J!NX’s standing as a leading designer and provider of high-quality gaming lifestyle goods online and at retail. Drawing from this experience, both the J!NX Brand and J!NX Pro lines offer consumers a means of paying tribute to not just one particular video game license, but gaming culture as a whole.
The new J!NX Pro line combines high-performance fits and fabrics with the utmost regard for form and feel to convey the dedicated look of professionalism that competitive teams expect. Maintaining focus while playing to win requires comfort and confidence, and so J!NX’s designs utilize true-to-size fits, top-grade moisture-wicking materials and fashion-forward styles on par with those of mainstream sports.
The first official J!NX Brand and J!NX Pro offerings of t-shirts, jerseys, joggers, hoodies and hats are now available online at JINX.com, with plans to expand to brick-and-mortar retail by fall 2017.
J!NX has released Series 3 of their Minecraft Hangers line of blind bag collectibles. This series consists of 10 different characters, including a Horse, Witch, Diamond Alex. Iron Golem, Villager, Rabbit, Spider, Snow Golem, Slime, and a Crafting Table. In addition to the main designs of those 10 characters, there are 3 rare chase variants (Villager, Rabbit and Spider).
Each blind bag includes one of those designs with a plastic hanger attached to its head (or top). We were sent about 6 blind bags thanks to J!NX and pulled three Witches, two Rabbits, and a Snow Golem. Let’s just say I won’t be playing the lottery anytime soon.
Out of all of the designs, I was hoping for the Snow Golem. I have a little collection dedicated to toys with pumpkin/jack-o-lantern heads. And I attribute it to being a fan of Return To Oz as a kid...and also being a little freaked out by the film.
And speaking of kids, my 4 and 6 year olds couldn’t get enough of these. They’re already fans of Minecraft, and build some of the most insanely complicated creations I’ve ever seen. So they had to snap these Minecraft Hangers onto their book bags. (Though my older son was hoping for an Iron Golem figure - hello stocking stuffers).
And I’m guessing that’s what most kids (and collectors) are doing with them. They’re somewhat limited articulation-wise, but they’re great for decorating bags or hanging from places. And at only $5.99 for a blind bag, they’re obviously a lot more affordable than other blind bag/box lines available out there.

Material: PVC Plastic
Dimensions: Approximately 3 inches tall
Points of Articulation: Varies
Designs: Horse, Witch, Diamond Alex. Iron Golem, Villager, Rabbit, Spider, Snow Golem, Slime, Crafting Table
