Minecraft CalendarIn February 2013, a contest was held by Mojang to collect work for J!NX to help produce a Minecraft Calendar for 2014 that featured sixteen months and was filled with fan-art. The contest's category was "Minecraft Humor", where the artist must display a working with humor of adventure or a funny story. The calendar was produced for UN Habitat after Mojang AB officially announced their partnership in September 2012. The contest was for the Block by Block campaign hosted by Mojang for UN Habitat. All proceeds headed towards this very goal.
The contest ends with twelve winners and the following prize(s):
- A Glow-in-the-dark Creeper Vinyl autographed by Notch and Jens (Jeb).
- $500 worth in cash.
- $500 J!NX certificate.
Original idea for contest: "What's the funniest thing that has happened to you in Minecraft?"
A second calender for 2015 has been produced.
Mojang and J!NX have released have released 2 ranges of figures: large scale, and 3" action figurines. The 3" high range have currently been released in 3 series and several 'core' packs. Each regular set normally includes a figure, block and either a tool or an item, though the Blacksmith is an exception to this rule as his 'item' (apron) is applied during manufacture.
Series 1 was released end of 2013/beginning of 2014, with series 2 arriving from July 2014 onwards with a phased introduction. Series 3's "Alex?" arrived in December 2014, and there have been no new announced action figures since.
