New ‘Fortnite’ Collectible Collection from Funko and Epic Games
Due to Fortnite’s rising popularity, developer Epic Games teamed up with Funko, the pop culture collectibles company, for an upcoming collaboration of Fortnite toys.
The line, based on the battle royale-esque third-person shooter, will feature over ten product lines. Fans will be able to purchase five Funko Pop! figures, five Star figures, keychains, Pint Size Heroes, and Pop! apparel based on notable imagery and characters from the game, all to be available this upcoming holiday season.
Funko CEO Brian Mariotti is esctatic about the pairing, saying:
“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.”
At this time, there are no official photos of the toys to come, but they are sure to be a hit this holiday season, given the game’s universal popularity and success on mobile, PC, and consoles.
This announcement followed Funko’s reveal of a new Pokémon Pikachu figure, releasing as a Target exclusive in July.
Funko has created toys celebrating everything from television and movies, to video games and comics, so it was almost inevitable that Fortnite join the lineup of coveted toys.
