Jazwares has announced its partnership with Epic Games for "Fortnite" toys and collectibles has been extended through 2025, in a deal brokered by IMG.
Beginning January 2022, Jazwares will be the exclusive toy partner for "Fortnite" and its four inches and under action figures and their compatible vehicles, playsets, accessories and more. Jazwares will also continue to produce new R/C vehicles, all of which will be compatible with Jazwares' full four-inch action figure line and plush in varying sizes.
Scheduled for 2022 is an all-new lineup of two-inch action figures with multiple points of articulation and accompanying playsets, vehicles and accessories to build out their world of "Fortnite" in miniature scale.
Since 2018, Jazwares and Epic Games have worked together on "Fortnite" licensing to more than 50 countries and launched more than 350 toys and collectibles at retail.
"These toys and collectibles have opened up the action-packed world of 'Fortnite,' adding a whole new level of detail that fans can connect to like never before," says Laura Zebersky, president, Jazwares. "Through the continually evolving four-inch action figure universe and now the new two-inch range, we are expanding collectibility to help fans build out the world of Fortnite. We are thrilled to be bringing these new, detailed micro scales to life for the first time, and look forward to working closely with Epic Games to continue growing fans' 'Fortnite' collections."
In addition to the latest items scheduled for 2022, Jazwares has unveiled new action figures, R/C vehicles and more, set to roll out at retail through 2021.
Available now, Jazwares latest "Fortnite" toys include:
- "Fortnite" Legendary Series Figures;
- "Fortnite" Feature Vehicle – Choppa; and
- "Fortnite" Agent's Room.
This fall, Jazwares will further expand its "Fortnite" offerings with three new vehicles: R/C Mudflap, Whiplash and the Reboot Van feature vehicle. Inspired by cars unveiled in past game seasons, this marks the first toy versions of these vehicles brought to retail. Two new "Fortnite" Supply Llamas filled with an outfit and the best gear from the game will also be available in the fall.
