    Pretty sure these will end up on clearance for like $7.50 within a few months of release so dont sweat it on the original price

    Fifty bucks from a company that's never done 6" before, and a face that looks like it's worn over her head, that's a huge no.

    These figures look decent but not SH Figuarts decent... closer to the Halo or Nintendo lines that have to be cheap to get away with their flaws next to other things, just with far more paint

    Would have been excited for many GOW figures otherwise,

    I expect Sony to be absolutely shocked these do not sell and abandon the line quickly

    Sony won't care one way or the other. It will be Spin Master who might need to cut and run.

    Sony cares enough to have a licensing department and to presumably have had some kind of conversation about making action figures for adults that will sell for lucrative prices, and chose Spinmaster to do it, and presumably are happier if they make money, but either way. Sure, Spinmaster will be sad too

    No Mimir is weak. I can see why they wanted to avoid it but still.

    Kratos needed a yelling head.

    It will likely come with Atreus. His signature chains are also missing. Somehow they need to justify the expensive price for the smaller figure.

    If they did a jak and daxter, I’d pick it up. Maybe some of those older mascot figures. Not feeling these other characters, though.

    Have heard Aloy is a "deluxe" release and $20 more than this Kratos. On one hand glad if Kratos is a price I would want to pay for this (especially living in a different country that remains to be seen but... not a definite no like 50USD is), on the other hand... hard not to imagine a deluxe Kratos that has the chains, the spear, Mimir, maybe an ice effect for the axe? Yelling head should have been a thing too. And it looks like the red detailing on the left forearm plate is missing, so extra paint there and for extra detailing

    Probably would not feel like it was worth $50 though so... maybe just hope for the more essential pieces (Mimir and the chains) to be with Atreus. Though Atreus himself could have a sword, the mask. Should at least have his knife. And since it would be Ragnarok, he is close to adult-sized and has a fairly detailed outfit in regard to paint, and... companies do not always care that a figure is smaller and I am not getting super generous vibes from SpinMaster with what we have seen so far... them not being all $50 does not suddenly justify the price for Aloy, and I am not sure 30USD feels better for figures that feel incomplete. If nothing else how does Kratos not have Mimir? Forget the deluxe hypothetical, the chains and Mimir if not all that other stuff are essential and... I am not expecting Atreus to rectify that. Or even do enough for Atreus in my eyes.

    The more I write the more the interest in Ragnarok figures fade and the more I feel this line still is not it.

    TNI has an Amazon link that has preorders for Aloy and Kratos up, the individual item pages are not yet live but the preorder links on that page do work.

    I just noticed, if you toggle the "in stock" button on the page, it shows info for TLOU 2-pack, Sakai, and Atreus. So if you keep that page bookmarked, you can check it periodically for those preorders I guess.
