'Fortnite' Collectibles to Power Up Toy Aisle
Epic Games has inked a deal with Moose Toys to create a range of mini collectibles inspired by its hit game “Fortnite.”
IMG, “Fortnite”’s licensing agent, brokered the deal. Under the terms of the agreement, Moose Toys will produce a series of figures inspired by “Fortnite Battle Royale.”
Each figure will stand three inches and under and bring the game’s characters to life. "‘Fortnite’ has the coolest characters in gaming, and we can't wait to apply our expertise in mini-collectibles to such a deep roster,” says Johnny O'Neal, vice president, marketing, Moose Toys.
“Our line will feature high-quality designs, detailed accessories, buildable forts and a truly epic range of figures to collect.” The first set of “Fortnite” collectible figures is set to roll out this fall.
Additional items including micro-collectibles and battle playsets will debut in 2019.
