“The road ahead is long and unforgiving. No place for a BOY. You must be a warrior…”
Kratos and Atreus have arrived! NECA sent through an early copy of the upcoming God of War (2018) 2 pack featuring the father and son duo from the game. Kratos is a remold of the original figure they put out last year and Atreus is all new. The both come packed with tons of extras in an awesome fold-open display box. Kratos comes with his Axe, Blades of Chaos, Upgraded Blades of Chaos with chains, an extra head featuring that awesome SCREAMING face, two flame effects for his hands, 1 flame effect for his blades, an ice effect for the axe, a knife, his shield in open and closed forms, open and closed fists. Atreus comes with his knife, bow, 5 arrows, hands for arrow holding and knife holding.
Noticeable differences between the first Kratos and this one include the Blades of Chaos forearm guards with chain wrap and Mimir’s head hanging off his back belt instead of the horn. This version of Kratos also features a less heavy paint application for his white skin, it has almost a pinkish undertone, but the sculpt shows much cleaner through it. Atreus is well done in regards to sculpt and paint head to toe.
This is a set I’ve been looking forward to since the original release, and especially since the game came out. The only thing that could have made it better was if it came with the boat :). We’ve run the pair through a session here, showing them off in standard and fancy style photos. Read on to check out over 120 images! These should be shipping to retailers soon (check our sponsors below), so get your pre-orders in!
