Always being wired into what’s happening in the toy industry, it’s really exciting when something genuinely surprises me! It’s funny how I’ll have every Marvel Legends purchase planned out for the year, but any given day a Jazwares Fortnite figure will show up on Amazon that I had no clue was even in development. Ragnarok was one of the more recent occurrences of this phenomenon.
Ragnarok is the second (or third if you are picky since Omega had a variant) figure in Jazwares’ Max Level subset of their 6-inch Legendary Collection line. Essentially this series showcases deluxe versions of their standard 6-inch figures by including various armor and costume parts that replicate the different unlockable styles for the character in-game.
I was surprised that they picked Ragnarok next. The obvious assumption was that Carbide would follow Omega. Regardless, I’m glad they chose Ragnarok. He compliments the recently released Valkyrie, and the optional armor parts actually work a lot better for him than they did with Omega. He’s a really fun figure that works surprisingly well with any configuration of armor on or off. While I didn’t love this feature with Omega, I did think the concept had merit and could be pulled off better. Ragnarok proves that this is the case, it’s a really great way to get those various looks in one package.
Ragnarok is packed with a total of 18 different parts including 3 head portraits, his skull mask, torso armor, a shoulder strap, a utility belt, 2 shin armor parts, 2 alternate hands, 2 should armor parts, 2 wrist guards, a soft goods cape, harvesting tool (Permafrost), and a gun.
Ragnarok is up on Amazon, it’s where I first discovered he was an actual toy I could buy, in fact! Of course a big thanks to all my Instagram Fortnite bois who usually give me a heads up when these things show up. I love you all!
