Jazwares – Fortnite Squad Mode Core Figure Box Set Review

 

Jazware’s Fortnite line is one of the hottest properties right now on the market, and this includes a full line-up of action figures, including a multipack and singles, and this Squad Mode Core Figure Box Set that gives you four figures to add to your collection. This box set includes Rex, Ragnarok, Cuddle Team Leader and Brite Bomber. We previously covered the packaging that was sent out, which is a life-size chest, that carried all of these sets when Jazwares shipped them out. That chest is truly amazing, and definitely one of the most impressive packaging we’ve ever seen.

A Fortnite Loot Chest that carries accessories for the 4″ figures is also featured in this review, and this particular chest is labeled as D, out of versions A,B,C and E variations that are also available. This particular chest includes an Uplink, Heavy Shotgun, Minigun, and a Burst Assault Rifle, as well as 2 Buildable Materials. Each of the chests like this one are sold separately, and each variation includes different accessories that the figures can hold. In the game, chests like this are scattered around and its up to the player to find them and take the contents.

Thank you to Jazwares for sending along this Fortnite Squad Mode Core Figure Box Set and the Loot Chest along for review.
