Playstation and Funko Collaborate for Second Wave of Figures
Ratchet, Clank, Joel, Sam Porter Bridges and Sweet Tooth are the next Sony characters to be given the Funko treatment.
Less than a month ago, Sony and figure manufacturer Funko announced a collaboration that included three of the most recognisable Playstation characters. These included Kratos with the Blades of Chaos from God of War, The Hunter from Bloodborne and Jin Sakai from recently released Ghost of Tsushima.
Now, following the first line, the two companies have confirmed that a second set of figures is due for release, containing even more of our favourite characters.

This time, the pair announced four brand new figures, again sharing a link to US Retailer GameStop where all four of the collectables will be exclusive. Each of the Playstation Funko’s are available to pre-order from the website right now.
The designs feature more of Sony’s most beloved characters from past and present. First up is a grizzled looking Joel from The Last of Us. Then, entering the line of Pop! Rides is the first crossover between Funko and PS1 classic Twisted Metal. The figure shows everyone’s favourite murderous clown, Sweet Tooth, hanging out of his ice cream truck brandishing a knife.
The collaboration offers up a double pack next with one of Sony’s most popular duos, Ratchet and Clank, who are returning soon on the PS5. Finally, and still waiting for final approvals, presumably from Kojima Productions, is Sam Porter Bridges, the protagonist from last year’s Death Stranding. The figure shows Bridges in his traditional outfit, holding a Bridge Baby.
These latest figures join a huge range of gaming characters to be immortalised in Funko form. The company recently revealed a line of Pop! Figures from Cyberpunk 2077, that include both male and female versions of the player character V and Keanu Reeve’s character Johnny Silverhand. Cyberpunk recently had the second Night City Wire event, which revealed plenty of new details about the game – including details on the three lifepaths and a variety of new weapons.
