Epic Games has teamed with McFarlane Toys for a range of collectible figures inspired by its hit game “Fortnite.”
IMG, “Fortnite”’s licensing agent, brokered the deal.
The new “Fortnite” collection will include seven-inch figures that bring the game’s characters to life as well as themed accessories.
“The ‘Fortnite’ brand has taken on global status and continued to grow each day,” says Todd McFarlane, chief executive officer and founder, McFarlane Toys. “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.”
The “Fortnite” range is slated to launch in the fall at a variety of mass retailers.
