Fortnite Funko POP! Figures Revealed In Leak, First Wave Coming Soon
It was recently announced that Epic Games was teaming up with Funko to create a line of merchandise based on the game that has take the world by storm. Fortnite Funko POP! vinyl figures will be included, of course, but there are so many skins to choose from that we would imagine it difficult to narrow down the selection.
Thankfully, however, a recent leak has provided fans with a look at the first wave that is expected to arrive later this year. Some fan-favorite skins are included in the initial lineup, which can be seen below:
We were already aware of the Rex figure, as it was revealed during San Diego Comic-Con last week. The rest of the first wave of Fortnite Funko POP! figures to arrive, however, will be the following:
- Skull Trooper
- Tower Recon
- Cuddle Leader
- Brite Bomber
- Love Ranger
- Black Knight
- Merry Marauder
- Highriser Assault Trooper
Personally, I find their lack of Tomatohead to be disturbing, but that’s just me. We are sure there will be plenty more skins making their way to the Fortnite Funko POP! line, but they likely won’t arrive until next year. Here’s a bit more on the partnership with Epic Games from Funko CEO Brian Mariotti:
“We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with Epic Games to create the inaugural Fortnite product collection and to bring these characters to life for the first time. 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.
We look forward to expanding this collection and combining our leading product capabilities with our strong retail platform. Ultimately our goal is to create a powerful merchandise strategy for the Fortnite brand, as well as bring these amazing collectibles to fans around the world.”
There is no specific release date as of now, but they are expect to arrive in time for Holiday season 2018. It should also be noted that while serlentpops is usually spot on with their leaks, salt should be kept nearby in case of an emergency.
