Funko’s POP! collection will feature some of Overwatch’s playable characters. Four figures have been announced so far—Tracer, “the time-jumping test pilot;” Reaper, “the mysterious mercenary;” Widowmaker, “the ice-cold assassin;” and Winston, “super-intelligent, genetically enhanced gorilla.” To be released in May.
I really like the POP! vinyls, and have a growing collection. I prefer the video game ones to the TV show or movies, so these will look nice with my collection. I have all the Assassins, and Borderlands 2’s Claptrap, Moxxi, Jack and Psycho, Bioshock Infinite’s Booker and Elizabeth , and Kratos. I am missing the Evolve and Mass Effect ones :(.
