The Fortnite Stonks skin is wonderful
Now in Fortnite, Stonks has been immortalized as a skin. It prices 1,200 V-Bucks and comes with the Gains! again bling, which is the pink arrow that’s depicted within the unique picture.
Fortnite Diamond Hanz takes some liberties with the design. Like his namesake, Diamond Hans has diamond textured palms. The swimsuit is torn across the shoulders, with extra tears round the best leg and ankles. The face seems to be extra like a crash take a look at dummy than the unique Meme Man, however the seems to be feels good. Epic Games have had a protracted historical past of creating close-enough-but-legally-distinct variations of memes, in spite of everything.
The merchandise store itemizing notably has a possible typo. It says “Hodl” after I assume they imply maintain, as evidenced within the splash artwork whenever you load in. It might have been intentional as an April Fool’s gag.
