  • We've partnered with Gaming Heads to create these Kratos and Atreus Exclusive Mini Figures. The two-pack includes a 3.5-inch-tall Kratos figure and a 2.75-inch-tall Atreus figure -- perfectly sized to display virtually anywhere. With Kratos holding his Leviathan Axe and Atreus with his Talon Bow at the ready, these figures are surprisingly detailed. They've also made an exclusive Bronze version that looks straight out of Tyr's temple.
