This is "Fear Kratos," mind you—not just plain ol' Kratos. He first appears in this contrast-heavy light towards the end of God of War 3 when he enters into dream state.

Welp, I'm not sleeping tonight.

You can see more photos of Fear Kratos in his statuesque fury over at the Gaming Heads website. And if you have $600, you can secure one for yourself before they go on sale later this year. Gaming Heads only made 100 available, so get him while he's angry!
