Epic Games and McFarlane Toys have teamed up for a new lineup for Fornite toys, according to a press release. The partnership will include “premium collectible figures, related accessories and resin statues,” with the first part of the collection set for a fall release.
McFarlane Toys founder and CEO Todd McFarlane cited the game’s immense popularity as one of the reasons behind the partnership.
“The Fortnite brand has taken on global status and continues to grow each day,” McFarlane said. “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.”
McFarlane added that the visual diversity of the Fortnite franchise should translate beautifully into a line of toys. Really, it’s surprising the partnership didn’t happen sooner considering Fortnite’s incredible success.
Unfortunately, McFarlane Toys only shared one image of what its upcoming partnership will produce. But the good news is fans will only have to wait until the fall before the collection comes out.
