Fortnite is moving beyond gaming and heading onto retailer shelves courtesy of our friends at McFarlane Toys. Fans can expect to see seven-inch premium figures from the Fortnite franchise and high-end accessories this fall as well as resin statues.
“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,” said Todd McFarlane, CEO, and Founder of McFarlane Toys.
“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!”
Donald Mustard, Worldwide Creative Director of Epic Games commented: “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.”
We've seen the stellar work McFarlane Toys has done with other gaming IPs including Cuphead, Destiny, Hello Neighbor and of course, Five Nights at Freddy's so Fornite should be no different. Are you going to add Fornite figures to your collection? Let us know in the comments.
