Your Cartoon Network And Adult Swim Geek Swag Gift Needs Covered For 2018!
If you are someone interested in gifting Cartoon Network and Adult Swim swag, there are a number of exciting things for you to choose from. The offerings from Cartoon Network Enterprises include items from Playmates Toys, LEGO, Mattel, and more!
Let’s begin with Playmates Toys (one of our favorites) and the items for the highly popular Ben 10 series on Cartoon Network. Ben 10 fans can go for the:
- Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber
This item allows you to create your own custom 3-inch mini alien hybrids using the Omnitrix-inspired chamber. The set includes 4 figures including Heatblast, Four Arms, Wildvine, and Grey Matter. The back of the chamber serves as a storage unit. This product will cost you MSRP $29.99.
You can collect more figures by buying the Alien Figure 2-Packs (sold separately for $6.99 each).
- Ben 10 Omni-Launch Battle Figures – Omni-Enhanced
With this, “kids can transform Ben’s Omni-enhanced aliens in a whole new way and
launch them into battle!”
You can use the Omnitrix launcher to load the figure disc and then launch it. The disc transforms into a figure in mid-air, ready for battle. I did try out a few of these at my little cousin’s place. It is going to take you a bit of practice to get the figures to land on their feet.
The Omni-Launch Omnitrix is fully adjustable to fit a range of wrist sizes. Each pack (costing MSRP $19.99) comes with 1 unique Omnitrix Launcher, 3 Omni-Enhanced Battle Figures and a tabletop target.
LEGO brings you The Powerpuff Girls sets!

The getaway car features an aimable stud shooter, space for the robot or stolen jewels and a handle on the back for one of The Powerpuff Girls to hang on as they chase Mojo Jojo. You can push the button to launch ice cream scoops and toppings at Mojo Jojo and his robot!

For fans of games, there is:

This tabletop game is based on the hugely popular “Pickle Rick” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. In this game, one player acts as Pickle Rick as he tries to escape a heavily armed compound, while the other player takes on the roles of both the Russians and Jaguar as they try to stop him.
The Pickle Rick player uses weapons cards to dole out damage and Air Vents to get out of jams as they try to get to the rooftop. The Pickle Rick and Jaguar miniatures are moved across a dynamic board made up of tiles that are constantly being added, rotated, and flipped.
It includes Pickle Rick and Jaguar miniatures and a custom, collectible Pickle Rick game case that measures approximately 12.75 inches tall and holds all of the game’s components. You can buy it for MSRP $45.
- Samurai Jack Back To The Past Strategy Board Game (USAopoly)
As a fan of Samurai Jack, I am very excited about this board game. With this new board game, fans can accompany Samurai Jack on his quest to vanquish the Shape-shifting Master of Darkness, Aku. As beloved companions from Jack’s adventures, players strive to gain the most Honor by helping him gather Allies, Weapons, and Traits.
Even if you aren’t into playing this board game (costing MSRP $34.95), it includes collectible Samurai Jack mini figures!
You should also consider Steven Universe: Save The Light.
