Fortnite - SKYE & OLLIE!

Fortnite Victory Royale Series - Skye and Ollie Deluxe Pack - Hasbro 2021

Hasbro's new Fortnite: Victory Royale Series seems to be starting off with a bang. With only a handful of figures on the shelves, there are already three female figures out there (Skye and Lynx in stores, and Jules on Amazon). I tend to groan a bit when a relatively new license changes hands too often. In a few short years we've seen similarly-scaled Fortnite figures from McFarlane Toys, Jazwares, and now Hasbro. But the figures themselves have been so interesting and unique that I don't mind the shifting production. Especially when it means more figures and more gender diversity. In three years, McFarlane only had three unique female sculpts and Jazwares only had two (in the Legendary series). So Hasbro already seems ready to blow those companies out of the water. Without personally knowing much about Fortnite, I judge these figures purely on aesthetics. Skye is colorful, quirky, very well sculpted and articulated, and a lot of fun. I can't wait see what's next. Let's check out Skye and Ollie below!

I somehow forgot to take a picture of the back of the box.

I love how her hat matches her flying fish companion Ollie and the camera around her neck is a pretty cool accessory to me.

Skye comes with two translucent blue swords, a backpack, and a suction-cup gun.
And of course, Ollie, the giant puffy flying fish-like thing.

Ollie is awesome. The colors are bright, the sculpt is interesting, and the face is very amusing. He comes in two pieces in the packaging (front and back) and snaps together easily. He is unarticulated.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Victory Royale Series Lynx.

And with Skully from McFarlane Toys and Valkyrie from Jazwares.
