Jinx Figure Of Witcher 3's Geralt Looks Like A Real Sourpuss

Dark Horse released the first details on its upcoming line of figures based on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a few days back, but they're not the only company that's creating toys based on the successful RPG. Jinx has announced that it, too, is creating a collectible based on Geralt, though their take on the hero is slightly more stylized.

The toy is coming this July, though further details aren't currently available. The company does say that it will be available through the official Witcher store and at its own site, and that an exclusive variant will be sold as well. Would it be too much to ask for a smile, Gerry?

When I went to see Deadpool last night, among the expected trailers for X-Men Apocalypse and Suicide Squad was something off the beaten path. Hardcore Henry is a film shot entirely in first-person, in which the audience is the main character.

You have a foul-mouthed friend (Sharlto Copley) to fill in the exposition. And there’s a stereotypically creepy villain Danila Kozlovsky) that wants to gut you for your bionic components.

Note that the trailer below is most certainly full of mature content.
