Fortnite lovers, this is excellent news!
McFarlane Toys and Epic Games announced a partnership to create Fortnite Premium Collectible figures, statues, accessories and more.
The collection will feature seven-inch premium figures from the game, as well as high-end accessories and collectibles, according to a press release.
Todd McFarlane, CEO of McFarlane Toys said in a statement Monday,
“The Fortnite brand has taken on global status and continues to grow each day. 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,”
He went on to say,
“The developer’s art team at Epic Games wants to bring that same attitude into the creation of their toys, and everyone here at McFarlane Toys will be doing all we can to bring Fortnite fans the very best products,” said McFarlane. “With such a deep and visually interesting library to choose from, I have no doubt that we will be able to showcase both current and ‘classic’ looks from the Fortnite franchise. After talking with some of the top creators at Epic Games, I’m delighted they are as stoked about our partnership to make cool toys as we are!”
Worldwide Creative Director of Epic Games, Donald Mustard, expressed his excitement as well,
“We’ve been fans of Todd and McFarlane Toys for years and years, and it’s been a dream come true to have an opportunity to collaborate with them. I’ve seen some of the prototypes and they’re so sweet… I think players are just going to be blown away.”
The collection is bound to be awesome, and it’s set to be released very soon-within a matter of months. Let the shopping rush begin-because there is bound to be one when these hot figures hit stores!
Figures will start hitting shelves and become available for order in Fall of 2018!
