McFarlane Toys will produce Fortnite toys
More Fortnite toys are coming.
McFarlane Toys will create a "range of Fortnite premium collectible figures" in partnership with Epic Games. Resin statues, high-end accessories, and seven-inch premium figures are part of the toy licensing deal, McFarlane Toys said in a press release.
From the looks of it, McFarlane will create figures based on some of Fortnite's more popular skins, like the Cuddle Team Leader from Valentine's Day, which is showcased in the announcement.
"The Fortnite brand has taken on global status and continues to grow each day," McFarlane Toys CEO Todd McFarlane said. "The game, with its sense of skill and irreverent fun, now has hundreds of character options to choose from, which is a tremendous blueprint for making any successful toy and action figure line."
The collection is expected to launch in fall 2018, McFarlane Toys said. It'll be available from "mass retail stores." Otherwise, details are slim on pricing and variants that'll be available from McFarlane and Epic. But given Fortnite's massive popularity—it's apparently making $2 million a day—it's likely these will be a big hit with fans and players.
In July, Epic Games and Funko announced a partnership to bring stubby, big-eyed vinyl toys into the world. The Funko Pop! Fortnite toy line will include Pop! figures, 5 Star Figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl, keychains, and POP! apparel.
There's truly no shortage of Fortnite toys in our future.
