Here’s your first look at Hasbro’s next Fortnite figurines and Loot Shark

Soon after launching its ‘The Foundation’ figurine for pre-order, Hasbro has taken the wraps off its next half-dozen Fortnite figurines — as well as a Shark toy that includes water skis for playing like you’re in the game. The toys were revealed as part of the Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest event, but you can’t order the items yet.

In late March, Hasbro revealed ‘The Foundation,’ a figurine of the iconic Fortnite character that is now available to pre-order from Hasbro. We knew at the time that The Foundation was the first of multiple figurines planned for release, but the other items weren’t revealed at the time.

During its Pulse Fan Fest, the company revealed the next six figurines that will be released as part of its Fortnite x Hasbro lineup, including Lynx, Meowscles, Rippley, Skye, and more. Joining the characters will be the Loot Shark which, based on the images, opens in the middle to hold the smaller toy pieces.

The images show back bling and pickaxes included with some of the figures, as well as other items like dual pistols and a weightlifting bench for Meowscles, the companion glider with Skye, a big shield, fishing pole and skis with the loot shark, and more.

Two of the six figurines will be ‘deluxe’ models, while the rest will be regular figurine toys; all of them, as with The Foundation, will measure six inches tall. According to Hasbro, the toys will feature pinless joints and realistic designs. The ‘loot’ included with the loot shark can be used with other figurines in the collection.

It’s unclear at this time when the rest of the Fortnite figurines will be revealed. The release date and prices for the current lineup haven’t yet been announced.

Hasbro’s Galactic Snackin’ Grogu toy can be fed with a spoon

Habro has introduced a fun new toy for young Mandalorian fans: the snack-eating Galactic Snackin’ Grogu. This ‘baby Yoda’ toy is as adorable as it is hungry, and it’ll be available to purchase starting in October. Among other things, kids can ‘feed’ Grogu using a little plastic spoon.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Disney’s The Mandalorian series, Grogu — most commonly referred to as baby Yoda — has quite an appetite and is frequently munching on something. It’s no surprise, then, that Hasbro went with that theme for its latest Star Wars universe toy.

The Galactic Snackin’ Grogu will arrive to purchase in time for the holidays. The toy will include some items for him to nibble on, including a soup bowl featuring some type of squid creature, a blue cookie, and a spoon so that kids can manually feed him.

The toy is designed to react to each of the included food items and to respond with what he prefers to eat. Grogu is also designed to react to the presence of his favorite toy, and the team teases that he appears to ‘use the Force when playing with it’ — though it’s a bit unclear what that means.

This new offering is a follow-up to The Child Animatronic Edition, one based on the events we see in the show’s second season. ‘Most major retailers’ are now taking preorders for the Galactic Snackin’ Grogu, including Amazon, Target, and Walmart; it is priced at $79.99 USD.
