The second wave of Jazwares’ 3 3/4-inch Fortnite line is starting to hit stores and I couldn’t be more excited. Never did I think that Jazwares would bring me back to a scale that I gave up on over a decade ago. But here we are in the year of our lord 2019, and I’m champing at the bit for more Jazwares 6-inch AND 3 3/4-inch Fortnite figures.
The builder parts are back for the second wave, and with that comes the 1×1 Builder Set. Consider it kind of a sequel to the set that included Jonesy and Raven in the first wave. This one only comes with one figure, the Black Knight, which of course is probably also why it’s about $15 cheaper. The set includes an impressive 40 parts including:
1 Black Knight figure
31 Building Squares (13 Wood, 9 Stone, and 9 Metal)
Now admittedly, I bought this set to get Black Knight. But since this is the first time I found myself with a mass of building squares, I messed around with them a bit. I built a small house, which was fine. For the most part, the squares snap right into each other with a little pressure, but some are more stubborn than others. I then went and tried to build the giant llama from the back of the box. I quickly found out after making the head that I needed quite a few more squares to complete it. I suppose whenever I get around to grabbing the Jonesy and Raven set I can make a giant llama for my guys to hang out in when they aren’t occupying my sail barge.
The Black Knight figure is fantastic! It’s yet another very strong, detailed sculpt with great paints, especially for the small size. His character specific pick-axe is included, but sadly no back bling. Now that I think about it, I don’t have very many backpacks for the 3 3/4-inch guys at all. I suppose I need to grab a few of those chests to correct this. (As a side note, those chests look like they’ll scale great with the 6-inch line)
Would I suggest Jazwares Fornite 1×1 Builder Set?
Even if you only want this set for Black Knight, the price seems to hover between $20 – $25, which isn’t much more than the MSRP for a deluxe figure like Omega or The Visitor. The blocks are fine to mess around with, but as I mentioned, some of them can be harder than others to snap into place. The Black Knight is phenomenal and if you are familiar with this line he won’t disappoint.
Jazwares’ second Fortnite series has started to show up on Amazon. You can grab the 1×1 Builder Set by going here. In addition to that, all of the second series is also available to purchase, and a 6-inch collection should be arriving shortly as well. Fortnite figures are hitting retail hot and heavy, and I’m here for it all!
