The muddy-funsters of Good Smile Co. have unveiled the next cutesy Nendoroid toy in their rapidly-expanding Overwatch range. This time around it’s non-other than the deviant from Down Under, Junkrat!
I’ve always been amused by Junkrat in regards to his depiction by Blizzard. The guy is often used as goofy comic relief, but he’s also pretty much a cut-throat murderer, who’d blow up your mum for three bucks. I guess in that sense Jamison Fawkes is Overwatch’s equivalent to the Green Goblin or The Joker; the charisma of a wacky doofus but, at heart, an incredibly dangerous individual.
Junkrat’s Nendoroid figure stands at a pocket-sized 100mm in height and comes complete with a selection of faceplates, allowing for a variety of dynamic, wild-eyed poses. Also included are his annoying bear trap, proximity mine and Rip-Tire weapons, as well as his trusty grenade launcher, so he can stand around the corner, randomly firing into the air above The Point and racking up a gauntlet of skill-free kills.
Already available for pre-order at Good Smile Co. and the official Blizzard Store – ahead of his early 2019 release – Junkrat costs around $50 USD, not including shipping or any applicable customs charges.
