Wave 2 is coming later this year.
Overwatch Pops are a hot ticket item, between the run away success of the game and the sweeping popularity of all things Funko Pop. While there are only so many characters in the Overwatch universe, there are plenty of cool variations on familiar characters to make any collector excited. Recently Funko announced wave 2 of its Overwatch Funko Pops, which means completing your set got just a little harder. Especially since the new figures open up new possibilities for exclusive variants.
Let’s take a look at the best of the best of Overwatch Funko Pops. Most of these Funko Pops are exclusive to specific retailers or were only sold at specific events, but they can still be nabbed for a premium price from Amazon, Ebay, and other retailers via third-party resellers. So if you see one you just have to have, you aren’t completely out of luck, if you have some extra dough. Let’s take a look:
The Winston Pop is another 6-inch figure, which means in Pop form, he retains his stature over the rest of the Overwatch heroes.
The Soldier 76 Pop is a GameStop exclusive in the US. It’s not the hardest to find, since GameStop has thousands of stores in the US, but the retailer exclusivity does make it a little cooler than if it were available everywhere. Resellers are also selling it on Amazon and elsewhere, if you’re especially lazy.
Pharah is another Overwatch Pop only available at one retailer, but unlike the Soldier 76, Pharah can only be bought first-hand from Blizzard itself. The good news is, of the Blizzard exclusives, it’s probably the easiest to get your hands on.
This cool exclusive Reaper variant has red eyes, which makes the Pop slightly more menacing than usual. BoxLunch is a specialty retailer with tons of cool pop culture swag, and the company also donates meals to the hungry. Win win.
Here’s another Blizzard-exclusive Overwatch Pop. You can’t order it directly from Blizzard’s store, so you either need to go to an auction site or attend a Blizzard event in person.
The Gold Soldier 76 Funko Pop is a BlizzCon exclusive and it’s a really cool variant on the GameStop exclusive Soldier 76. Once again, since it’s an event exclusive, the only way to get it is through auction sites or third-party sellers.
This Tracer with neon green Sporty skin was a Loot Crate exclusive for June 2016, which gave it a pretty limited run. Not too hard to find if you’re looking to round out your collection, but you’ll need to cough up a few bucks. If you can’t nab a neon green Tracer, her standard Funko Pop is still available on Amazon on the cheap.
The Wight Reaper Pop is maybe the hottest of the BlizzCon exclusives, with figures going for hundreds of dollars right after BlizzCon wrapped. The price has come down a lot since then, but it still fetches a premium. And it’s hard not to see why: it’s awesome.
This is one of the newly announced Wave 2 Overwatch Pops, and of the new series, this is easily the coolest. It’s an oversized, 6-inch Pop, one of two coming later this year (the other is Reinhardt, which is also a really cool figure).
