At last year's E3, Microsoft announced Gears Pop! - a mobile game mashing the company's popular Gears of War franchise with toymaker Funko's collectible figures. Since then, 'Pop!' figures for some of the game's most beloved characters have been released. Today, Microsoft revealed that a new wave of such figures will be hitting the market on May 23.
As was announced earlier this month by the company, the mainline collection will include Kate Diaz in her winter gear - that you might recognize from the Gears 5 trailer shown at E3 2018 - and Marcus Fenix in his classic gear. Furthermore, other characters' figures such as Queen Myrrah and the Locust Boomer will also be arriving, alongside Gamestop exclusive Skorge.
The limited-edition 'Collector's box', previously unannounced, is being released on the same day as well. Its details are as follows:
"Also releasing on Thursday is a limited-edition Collector’s Box which includes four Gears Pop! pins, a Gears Pop! baseball hat, a Gears Pop! artbook and four limited release Pop! figures: a red Skorge with shaded details, a gold-dipped of Marcus Fenix, a patinaed Myrrah, and Anya Stroud. The Collector’s Box is available exclusively at GameStop (in-stores and online) with limited quantities at EB Games, Sportscard Australia, select retailers throughout Europe and at E3."
Notably, all of the Pop! collectibles will have a code associated with them that can be redeemed to your Xbox Live account starting May 23. Following the launch of Gears Pop! later this year, the content will be unlocked simultaneously as it is released in the game.
