Channel Your Inner Jinx With the New Nerf LMTD League of Legends Jinx Fishbones Blaster
Hasbro has joined hands with Riot Games to launch an all-new Nerf LMTD Jinx Fishbones rocket launcher, which lets you channel your inner Jinx, though with only Nerf darts and not mayhem-causing death rockets. Whether you’re an avid League of Legends player or were ushered to the franchise via the Netflix series set in the same universe, Arcane, you probably know/have heard of Jinx, a somewhat childish yet downright insane character who loves blowing up things for fun. The iconic League of Legends character has now bagged a new collaboration with Hasbro, which has turned her “favourite” weapon Fishbones, a rocket launcher whose design is inspired by a shark into a Nerf gun.

This new Jinx Fishbones rocket launcher is part of the Nerf LMTD series, which the company calls “a premium, special-edition, fan-focused line from the Nerf brand that brings some of the most iconic items from movies, video games, and entertainment to life.” And aesthetically speaking, this new toy gun indeed captures the essence and raw nature of Jinx’s weapon. Right off the bat, the blaster’s design and purple paint job will make you feel at home. The metallic borders, leather strap, and rugged-looking exterior, all add to the weapon’s charm and appeal.
Even though you won’t be able to blast actual rockets out of this thing, the Jinx Fishbones packs in enough firepower to wreck “dart havoc” and annihilate the enemy team. The Jinx Fishbones Blaster has an 18-dart capacity drum and it shoots these in groups of three via the shark jaw that will open and close as demanded. Measuring 35″ in length, this rocket launcher needs no batteries and can be reloaded by simply pulling back the fin, which sounds super cool. Bundled with the Jinx Fishbones rocket launcher are 18 Nerf Elite foam darts, allowing you to load these and go about your business.
For those who love showing off, these Nerf rocket launchers come included with a “Jinx-inspired display stand and premium packaging.” With a price tag of USD $170, the Nerf Jinx Fishbones rocket launcher isn’t your average off-the-shelf toy gun and seems to be targeted at hardcore fans of the franchise who love to build a collection rather than use it for everyday Nerf warfare. That said, if you already are head over heels for these, you can pre-order the Nerf Jinx Fishbones via the official Nerf website or Amazon. Pre-orders are already underway and are slated to end on January 3, 2023, with shipping to kick off sometime in December 2023.
