Funko and Playstation Collaboration Sees New Line of POP Vinyls
Kratos, Jin and The Hunter join forces in Gamestop exclusive figures.
Over the PS4 generation Sony have become more and more known for their fantastic range of exclusive titles. From 2018 smash hit God of War to the more recent, but absolutely fantastic The Last of Us Part II, Sony have rarely missed. The games have achieved a multitude of perfect scores and hundreds of Game of the Year awards between them. Now however, arguably in the greatest honor of all, Playstation have had a handful of their characters immortalized in a new line of Funko POPs.
Joining a line of recently announced Cyberpunk 2077 POP figures, that include both male and female versions of the player character V and Keanu Reeve’s character Johnny Silverhand, are a handful of Sony’s most recognizable characters.

The three characters were announced through Funko’s official Twitter account and are exclusive to struggling US retailer Gamestop. All three figures are now available to pre-order from the Gamestop website.
The first of the three POP Vinyls shown is Kratos with the Blades of Chaos (that glows in the dark) from the God of War franchise, which has actually already had a line of POP figures released. Second is the protagonist from Bloodborne, The Hunter, sporting his iconic look. Finally, and most recently is a Blood Splatter Variant of Jin Sakai from Sucker Punch’s upcoming title Ghost of Tsushima.
Ghost of Tsushima is available for PS4 this Friday and recently had a stunning launch trailer released alongside an awesome free downloadable PS4 theme. Like with all Sony first party titles, you can expect our review at some point in the not too distant future, so make sure to check back when that becomes available.
