PAX JAX SKIN REVIEW

PAX Jax is a skin that due to its nature and implementation stands in a peculiar place.

On the one hand, it’s very similar to Classic Jax though with a new weapon and hat.

On the other hand, it’s a highly collectable skin that represents the Cardboard Tube Samurai from Penny Arcade.

Therefore, it becomes a skin that can be uninteresting or invaluable depending on how much weight the comic reference has.

On the whole, it’s not a bad skin as it suitably interprets an unorthodox fighter.

However, it’s not worth chasing to the end of the Earth and it certainly isn’t something to acquire at any cost.

PAX JAX SKIN INFO

  • PAX Jax is a reference to the Cardboard Tube Samurai from the web comic Penny Arcade (which hosts the Penny Arcade Expo - PAX). A symbol on PAX Jax resembles Pac-Man and matches symbols on the Samurai's gi and the shirt of Penny Arcade protagonist Gabe.
  • He shares this theme with Sivir and Twisted Fate.

PAX JAX SPLASH ART

  • A grey forest seems to be the frame of this piece, a forest that looks sterile and empty.
  • Fortunately, Jax’s portrayal doesn’t share those characteristics: his clothes are finely drawn with patterns and folds, his straw hat shows every fibre, and his eyes shine; even his bandages are detailed.
  • The counterpart to this attractive visual display is that the look isn’t a close match to the in-game model.
  • Furthermore, the cardboard tube looks like wood and the legs look drab while the perspective of the feet seems unconvincing.
  • In general, it’s a splash art that looks good but is a bit deceiving about its subject.
