New Wave Of Expensive Destiny Figures Coming From 3A

Bungie and Activision are teaming up with toy company 3A once again to bring more Destiny action figures to fans. The manufacturer put out the Titan class last year, and is scheduled to release the Warlock and Hunter this year.

Each class will have three separate versions depending on what retailer the figure is ordered from. Both Bungie and Bambaland, 3A's official store, are offering exclusive figures with different color schemes, weapons, and Ghost accessories. There will also be a standard retail version available for both classes. The Titan figure from last year only came in one color scheme, but offered additional weapons to those who ordered from Bambaland. Each individual figure will cost $190, so collecting each variation might be a costly venture.

These figures stand at 12.2 inches tall, with 27 points of articulation and interchangeable hands, weapons, and accessories.The Warlock class comes with a pulse rifle, fusion rifle, and heavy machine gun while the Hunter includes a sniper rifle, heavy rocket launcher and hand cannon. Pre-orders from each retailer start on July 7 for the Warlock and July 21 for the Hunter. You can check out a gallery of each option's color scheme and weapons below.

August Cover Revealed – E3 Hot 50

Now that the dust has settled on another E3, we have a better perspective on where the games industry is headed in the near future. With new console announcements, another big virtual reality push, and several new game reveals, we had a lot of ground to cover in roughly 90 pages. Our August 2016 issue distills the expo into a potent collection of stories that tells you everything you need to know about emerging technologies and ranks the 50 games we think had the best showing.

Our E3 trailers feature breaks down everything we know about debuted games like Death Stranding, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Prey, and Spider-Man. And finally, the E3 Hot 50 features several multi-page previews on titles like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and of course The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

To celebrate the annual gaming extravaganza, we commissioned the talented artist Alex Griendling to create two unique covers starring two of the biggest stars of E3 2016 – Kratos and Link. Check out his impressive work below:
