Fortnite Funko Pops Set To Arrive Later This Year
It’s been said plenty of times before, and it will likely continue to be said until it is no longer true – Fortnite is taking over the world. Season 5 has kicked off with blurring the line between the video game and the real world, and we’ve even seen a World Cup superstar throw some epic shade. In addition to quickly becoming the most popular game in the world, it has now been revealed that Fortnite Funko products will be debuting this year.
It was recently announced that Epic Games has partnered with Funko to create a “new Fortnite branded collection” that is going to “feature more than ten different product lines including Funko’s iconic Pop! figures, 5 Star figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl, keychains, POP! apparel and more.”
“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,” Funko CEO Brian Mariotti stated. “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.” Epic Games Vice President Mark Rein added a comment, saying:
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. We hope our players are as excited as we are about all of the cool stuff that’s on its way.”
The Fortnite Funko figures and other collectibles are set to arrive during the 2018 Holiday season. In the meantime, Fortnite is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and iOS devices.
