- A lucky fan stumbled upon a rare God of War action figure at a yard sale for only $1, a steal considering its usual price of around $70 on eBay.
- The figure is based on the Dark Odyssey Skin from God of War 2 and represents a more powerful version of Kratos.
- The action figure is part of NECA’s God of War line, which includes other versions of Kratos from different games, but there are no plans for a God of War Ragnarok figure yet.
A fortunate God of War fan discovered a rare piece of merchandise for the award-winning franchise at a yard sale. And the price that this merch was purchased for would put a smile on the face of any God of War fan.
In the world of video games, it’s hard to find a protagonist more prolific than Kratos from the God of War series. Born in the Greek city of Sparta, Kratos is half god, and half mortal, with a rich backstory marked by violence and tragedy. Kratos made his debut in 2005’s God of War on the PlayStation 2, and ever since then, players have gone on a journey with the character, watching him slay gods with enchanted weapons and his bare hands. In the modern-day God of War games, the life of Kratos is still a tragic one but leans more toward the theme of redemption than revenge.
While browsing through a yard sale, Reddit user GundamEnthusiast found a Kratos action figure from God of War 2, back when the character was in his prime years. Not only that but the highly detailed figure had a price tag of only one dollar. GundamEnthsiast went on to explain that the figure was missing a blade, but it’s still a great find regardless. A sealed version of this figure typically goes for around $70 on eBay.
The heading for the Reddit post mentions that the original poster rescued the figure out of the blazing sun, which may lead some people to believe that the darker complexion of the plastic is due to heat. But actually, the skin color is supposed to look like that, as this version of Kratos is based on an unlockable skin from God of War 2, called the Dark Odyssey Skin. Players can unlock this version of Kratos by beating God of War 2 on God Mode. The Dark Odyssey skin not only changes the look of Kratos but also increases his power.
The action figure that GundamEnthusiast found is part of NECA’s God of War line of figures and was released in 2008. This line also included the “Poseidon’s Rage” version of Kratos from God of War 2 and the “Ultimate” version of Kratos from God of War 3. NECA’s most recent addition to this collection is Kratos from God of War (2018). There are no official plans for a God of War Ragnarok version of Kratos for the line at this time, but fans of the series have expressed plenty of interest in it.
