Avid fans of the animated series “Rick and Morty” were delighted with the confirmation of the show’s return this month. Their excitement will likely go up a notch higher, as new and exclusive merchandise for the show were revealed.

Vinyl and pop culture toy manufacturer Funko unveiled the Tinkles with Ghost in a Jar Pop! Figure. The figure, which comes as a San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) exclusive is Funko’s take on Summer Smith’s imaginary friend.

The character appeared as an Alien Parasite on the episode “Total Rickall,” said a report from Comicboob.com.

Tinkles comes with a mini companion and fellow Alien Parasite, Ghost in a Jar. The report also noted that Ghost in a Jar is a rare item on the “Rick and Morty” Mystery Mini line. Furthermore, “Rick and Morty” fans can also look forward to the famous Portal Gun, as seen on the show. The replica gun sports all of its key elements, namely, the red display, three plastic emitters, and a black knob. It also comes with a green plasma tube placed at the top.

To imitate how the gun works in the show, “a variety of lights and noises” will come out when the trigger is pulled. The Portal Gun rolls out in November. On the other hand, Tinkles with Ghost in a Jar’s release date will be announced later this year.

Adult Swim recently confirmed through a trailer that “Rick and Morty” season 3 episode 2 will air on July 30. The announcement was made after months of uncertainty, which led to speculation that the show may not return after all.

In April, the show’s co-creators, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, surprised the fans on April Fool’s Day by airing the pilot of season 3. What followed were two months of waiting, up until Harmon took to Twitter last month. “Anyway, season 3 is coming, we took too long writing it, they’re finishing drawing it, it’s coming, AS said summer, that’s real, press covfe,” Harmon tweeted.
