The world’s biggest game is partnering with the world’s biggest pop-culture saturated, big void eyed toy makers as a deal is cut between Epic Games and Funko. Fortnite toys and collectibles are now on the way.
Funko announced the partnership today, revealing that a number of lines of Funko Fortnite toys will be hitting shelves by the holidays. The Fortnite collection will feature ten product lines in total, including Pop! figures, 5 Star Figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl, keychains, POP! apparel, and more.
“We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with Epic Games to create the inaugural Fortnite product collection and to bring these characters to life for the first time,” Brian Mariotti, CEO of Funko, said. “This collection will be a true celebration of Fortnite’s incredible popularity and cultural significance, and we believe our Funko Fortnite collectibles will strongly resonate with fans of the game.”
If you can think of a video game, TV show, movie, comic book series, or fandom, odds are that Funko has the license to create toys. Their Pop! line is incredibly popular, taking over entire walls of stores like GameStop. Giant games like Overwatch and League of Legends already have gotten the Funko treatment.
“We’re all big fans of Funko’s collectibles, so we were thrilled when we had the chance to partner with them on the Fortnite collection,” Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, said. “We hope our players are as excited as we are about all of the cool stuff that’s on its way.”
It’s unknown what the Funko Fortnite lines will look like. Odds are they will feature some of the more popular outfits and skins that have been released for purchase through the Battle Pass or store over the past 10 months. But who knows, maybe they’ll do every skin. Maybe there won’t be room left for any one or thing that isn’t a Funko Pop.
