Fortnite's world domination continues with the announcement that Epic has partnered with Funko to produce a line of toys based on the hit battle royale game. Prepare to see little bobble headed curiosities based on your favorite characters like Tomato Head, and that one really cool John Wick skin.
Actually, the agreement between Fortnite and Funko will cover ten different product lines including Funko's Pop! Figures, 5 Star figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl, keychains, POP! Apparel, and more. Funko has a pretty interesting line of figures outside of the ubiquitous, bobble headed Pop! Figures and no doubt they're excited to expand the Fortnite brand across all of them.
"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," said Epic Games vice president Mark Rein. The line of Funk merchandise will launch Holiday 2018 according to the press release and will be available at several retailers.
We expect that the figures will be based largely on popular Fortnite skins which have become iconic. You can see what we think are the coolest Fortnite skins over on our Best Fortnite Skins list. I'm looking forward to a Rook figure myself.
