PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve pointed out a number of times in the past, I really don’t add too many of the variant cover editions to my collection based on trying to keep the budget for a wider assortment of titles as opposed to more of the same issues with different covers. The “Fortnite” property is a juggernaut of popularity and we love all of the toys that we’ve observed over the last couple of years at the Toy Fair. I’ve never played a moment of the game but it looks like chaotic fun. Have you played? Do you collect any of the wide assortment of action figures? Chime in down below and let me know which covers are on your must have list. See you next time.
