“Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers” Side-Scroller Beat ‘Em Up Looks Awesome

Check out this brand new Cartoon Network game for PS4 entitled ‘Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers’. Featuring characters from Steven Universe, The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Clarence, and Uncle Grandpa, this side-scroller that was just announced seemed to slip under the radar. As a fan of most of these shows (even Uncle Grandpa, but I will not openly admit that), this looks like a pretty fun game with a great art style that brings together these diverse characters in one banner.

Check out the trailer below:

When Uncle Grandpa accidentally drives the UG-RV through multiple dimensions, he picks up some surprise passengers in the form of Gumball, Steven Universe, Finn, Mordecai and Clarence! Now they’ll have to band together to defeat the evil shard creatures and set things right. Use each character’s unique attacks and special moves to conquer the elements, fight your way through all the levels and beat some brutal boss battles. Replay maps with special modifiers to switch up the fun, and unlock bonus rooms along the way.

The game will be available on November 8 exclusively for PS4.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Titans Vinyls – X-Files, Doctor Who, Cartoon Network – VIDEO

We are big fans of Titans Merchandise and their vinyl figures, and are always excited to see what new licenses they will bring to NY Toy Fair 2016. This year was no disappointment, as we get to see a sneak preview of their newest lines from The X-Files, Hannibal, Edward Scissorhands, and the continuation of their Doctor Who and Mass Effect lines.

The big news for me is their Cartoon Network line, which has the ability to access 25 years worth of toons that can become toys. The first series will include Johnny Bravo, Dexter’s Laboratory, Regular Show, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and the Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy to name a few. We also learn about some of their exclusives that are already out, as well as what might be on the way.

Cartoon Network announces five partners to create “Steven Universe” toys

Cartoon Network has just signed on five partners for their hit animated series, “Steven Universe”. Funko, Just Toys International, PhatMojo, Toy Factory and Zag Toys will be creating all kinds of products based on Rebecca Sugar’s hugely-popular show, one that the folks that write this site are immense fans of.


Funko and Just Toys International will be launching their products in time for this holiday season, with Funk creating vinyl figures from their “Pop!” series based on Steven and the Gems (Amethyst, Pearl and Garnet, and maybe others in the future), while Just Toys will release an assortment of blind bag novelty products including dog tags, fun packs, minis, 3D backpack hangers and other things. Expect to see all of these items pop up in Hot Topic and similar retailers.

In spring of 2016, PhatMojo will launch an assortment of plushies as well as foam and plush weapons from show, and Zag Toys will have mini-figures, including bobble heads, that we will hopefully see during NY Toy Fair 2016. Personally, I am grateful that the line was not picked up by Jazwares, who did not do such a stellar job with their toys from “Regular Show” nor the upcoming figures from “Gravity Falls”.

Toy Factory is expected to add a line of plush and assorted novelty items in 2017, so keep your eyes open and your money saved for whatever they make. I look forward to seeing what Funko makes, especially if the line does well and we can get a bobble-head of a gem fusion!
