Earlier this month, ThreeZero revealed they were making some beautiful, 1:6 scale figures based on the post-apocalyptic RPG series Fallout. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to “ridiculously cool/expensive toys”, these new figures might just fit the bill: A fraction of the cost, but still completely awesome.
The figures will be part of Funko’s (who are, of course, also making Pop! Vinyls based on the series) “Legacy Collection” line of 6” toys that has previously covered the likes of Firefly and Game of Thrones, this time with a general focus on Bethesda’s games: specifically Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Yes, that means you could pit Brienne of Tarth against a member of the Brotherhood of Steel on your desk, and that’s kind of amazing.
The first four figures in the line, which will cost $20 apiece, are split into two for Fallout and two for Skyrim: player characters in the form of the default Vault 101 “Lone Wanderer” and the Dovahkiin, and then two popular armor designs from either series—the Power Armour worn by the Brotherhood of Steel, and the Daedric plate worn by Daedra Warriors.
They’re sparsely accessorised (only the Dovahkiin gets more than one accessory), but look fantastic, especially the fancy gear of the Daedric Warrior. Sure, they’re not the quality of a figure like the one’s you’d buy from ThreeZero, but for Fallout and Skyrim fans who just want something on their desk, they’re pretty damn great.
The figures will be out in November to celebrate the highly anticipated release of Fallout 4, and presumably commiserate Elder Scrolls fans who are still waiting for a follow up to Skyrim.
