Jakks Pacifics’ latest Splatoon products are nearly here. GameStop has listings up for the Splatoon Splattershot Mini and Splatoon Splattershot Blaster that will be sold on July 4. The two are priced at $30 and $15 respectively.

Both of these products are a part of the World of Nintendo line. They fire actual ink, and at least when it comes to the Splattershot Mini, it can shoot up to 50 shots.

According to Licensing.biz, Jakks Pacific has won the master toy’s license for the Mega Man animated series. With this license, they are able to make various of different products from figures and plush to costumes and play sets.

Jack McGrath the COO of Jakks Pacific says:

“I grew up with Mega Man and am a big fan, so I’m thrilled for Jakks to team up with DHX Brands and Dentsu on the new animated series,”

The Mega Man animated series is supposed to air in 2018 on Cartoon Network.

You may be familiar with the World of Nintendo toys. Jakks Pacific is the company responsible for them and in a recent press release announcing their first quarter financial results, they have highlighted that the launch of Switch has boosted their sales (probably refering to their World of Nintendo brand).

Additionally, the Chairman and CEO Stephen Berman has confirmed that they are planning more Splatoon products, which will probably benefit from the launch of Splatoon 2 for Switch this July:

“As we look ahead to the next few quarters, we will continue to focus on margin improvement and our long term strategic goals. Our fall lines are moving forward as planned and we have a strong line-up of new product introductions that are a balanced mix of owned IP and licensed brands, including Real Workin’ Buddies™ Mr. Dusty, XPV® Extreme Performance Skateboard RC, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3, DC Superhero Girls and Nintendo Splatoon.”

Aside from the strange-looking Link pictured below from Breath of the Wild, upcoming items include a bow and arrow set, jumbo plushies, Splatoon Splat Balls, Nintendo playset featuring Peach’s Castle, a repackaging of Toad at Family Dollar, and more.

A tentative schedule for some of the toys is as follows:

4″ Hitting in March
Ice Mario, Inkling Girl, Lakitu, Bowser Jr (paintbrush this time), and “Classic Mario”

4″ Hitting in June
Mario Maker, Luigi (open hands), BotW Link, Iggy Koopa, and Yellow Yoshi

2.5″ Hitting in May
Dr. Mario, Blue Baby Yoshi, Larry Koopa, Purple Squid and Red Bob-omb

Jakks Pacific is teasing a brand new Zelda figure which will be based on Link’s appearance in Breath of the Wild. For now, we’ve only heard that it will be 4.5 inches.

We’ve known about Jakks Pacific’s Trophy Series and Prototype Series figures for some time now. But before the weekend started, some new ones were shown on Twitter.

For the Trophy Series, the new additions are Ganondorf and Tanooki Mario. Toon Link and Olimar are being added to the Prototype Series.

Store exclusives seem to be involved here. With the Trophy Series, they can only be found at Walmart. Target has the exclusive on the Prototype Series.
