The year of Fallout continues to trek on, as Bethesda is inundating the entertainment world with as much Fallout as possible, from re-releases to PC ports to fun mobile games. This is all in anticipation of Fallout 4, which is set to be one of the biggest video game releases of all time, if Bethesda’s considerable hype train pays off.
The Fallout 4 game by itself would’ve been enough to get gamers excited about the enticing post-apocalyptic world of Fallout, but Bethesda has been heavily pushing other Fallout related items since the game’s reveal trailer a few months back. Now fans can add yet another Fallout-centric item to their wish list, courtesy of toy manufacturer threezero.
As announced by Bethesda on Twitter, renowned toy manufacturing company threezero is designing a figure for the franchise’s iconic Power Armor, as it will appear in the upcoming Fallout 4. Unfortunately, pricing and release information remain unknown for the figure, but one would imagine that it would release around the time that the Fallout 4 game hits store shelves on November 10th.
Take a look at the in-progress figure from threezero, courtesy of Bethesda’s official Fallout Twitter account:
As stated previously, we don’t know when this Power Armor figure from threezero will be available to purchase, but those interested should keep an eye on stores so that they can pre-order. After all, the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition is completely sold out, which is evidence that Bethesda tends to release these items in limited quantities.
The Power Armor figure from threezero is just the latest Fallout related item that Bethesda is bombarding fans with in order to build up hype for not only Fallout 4, but the franchise in general. This effort has included the aforementioned Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4, as well as the Fallout Anthology, which collects the older PC games in the series in a mini-nuke that has just enough space to add Fallout 4 as well.
Beyond that, Bethesda has also managed to introduce Fallout to casual mobile gamers with the charming Fallout Shelter, a mobile game wherein players try to manage their own post-apocalyptic vault. The game, which has been played for more than 29 million hours at last count, is most certainly broadening the horizons for the franchise, which has been targeted almost exclusively at hardcore gamers in the past.
All of this plus a fancy Fallout 4 art book that’s releasing later this year combine to make 2015 a great year for fans of the series. This power Armor figure from threezero is just the latest item announced by Bethesda, but we imagine that the Fallout wave will still be riding high over the next few months, so don’t be surprised if there’s even more in store for Fallout fans before all is said and done.
