Fortnite - LYNX!

Fortnite Victory Royale Series - 6" Series Single Packs - Lynx - Hasbro 2021

I wasn't sure how I felt about Hasbro taking over the license for 6" Fortnite figures.  We had two similarly-scaled lines from McFarlane Toys and Jazwares that had petered out rather quickly. Is third time really a charm? I had my doubts. But I must admit I have been converted. Purely going by quantity of female figures, the Hasbro line has already blown the previous two out of the water.  I now own four females in the Victory Royale series and it's only been two months on the shelves. In several years of producions, the McFarlane line only had three female sculpts, and the Jazwares line only had two. And this inaugural figure, Lynx, is really stunning. She looks sleek and mysterious with a futuristic sci-fi vibe. Plus I'm a sucker for any cat-themed characters. She's very different from the other Fortnite figures I've purchased. My Fortnite collection is mostly colorful and quirky, but Lynx has a dark serious aura. I think she's great and she makes me excited to see who's next. Let's check out Lynx below!

Hasbro's 6" Fortnite line is one of the first examples of their new plastic-free (or reduced plastic) packaging initiative. There is only a small window in which to view the characters head and partial torso. The accessories were wrapped in tissue paper and contained in a cardboard partition in the box.

Lynx comes with a rifle, a sickle, and bear backpack.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Lynx with her 3.75" version from Jazwares.

And here is Lynx with two larger-scale Fortnite figures from different companies: Skully from McFarlane Toys and Valkyrie from Jazwares.

And here she is with two recently similarly-scaled Hasbro figures: Sylvie and Scorpina.
