Algebraic! Adventure Time Toys!

Adventure Time Toys!

I haven’t watched TV in years, but every once in a while a show comes along that I go out of my way to watch. In Bubble Pipe Theater terms, I make sure to digitally acquire every episode of the few shows that I’m interested in, and Adventure Time tops that list. It’s like Pendleton Ward created the show just for me, and didn’t put much thought into if anyone else would like it.

Every since I’ve been into Adventure Time, I’ve wanted toys, and now they’re finally available. I guess they’ve been out for a while now and I haven’t noticed. I don’t make it to toy stores as often as I’d like.

Well I’m impressed. I assumed that when/if Adventure Time toys came out, they would be lame, but these look awesome. The 10 inch deluxe Finn figure with interchangeable faces is particularly awesome. There’s a Jake to match (with Beemo!) and there are also smaller versions of the characters. The two-packs of PVC figures would make good desk buddies.

I think it’s safe to say there will be a lot of people rocking the 24 inch sword as part of their Halloween costumes this year.

The toys are made by Jazwares and are available online and in toy stores. I can’t wait to get my hands on these. What other Adventure Time toys would you like to see made? Besides a 10 inch deluxe Ice King figure (with drums!), I’d love to see a huge tree house playset. That would be totally math!

As I’ve said before, I love a good mash-up. This Threadless submission by Steven Lefcourt is another brilliant example. He combined the two most iconic of Marvel’s Avengers with Finn and Jake from Pendleton Ward’s animated series Adventure Time. The character cross-over is brilliant but title combination makes it almost a magical mix. (The inclusion of Mjolnir in the title graphic is an extra special touch.)
