Epic Games Fortnite has finally hit the next level with Moose Toys announcing today it will start to create a bunch of action figures and forts on a smaller scale. It looks like for anything that is 3 inches and under Moose Toys will be the global partner and based on their Shopkins and Pikmi Pops brands (along with others) we think this is going to be a home run. They have made Shopkins one of the most popular toys we have seen in a while from the collectible end.
What makes this so interesting is because Fortnite is a skin based game, the amount of characters that could be created will be large. Also because it is a sandbox type game, the types of forts will also be large creating the ability to bring this to market like Shopkins from that regard. We are thinking we may see blind packs and collectible sets along with maybe some larger 3 inch products. Kids everywhere (and probably adults) will have these in their rooms, on their desks, and in front of them as they continue to play this hot game.
Moose Toys today announced a new partnership with Epic Games to create a wide range of Fortnite™ mini collectibles, in a deal brokered by IMG. Moose Toys will be the global partner for Fortnite branded figures 3 inches and under, starting with a new line to be unveiled this fall. The Fortnite Battle Royale Collection will give fans the opportunity to collect a huge roster of characters and miniature scale fort building sets.
Mark Rein, Epic Games co-founder, commented, “We love the idea of giving fans the chance to build a huge collection of figures and forts at an awesome mini scale!”
Johnny O’Neal, Vice President of Marketing at Moose Toys said, “Fortnite has the coolest characters in gaming, and we can’t wait to apply our expertise in mini-collectibles to such a deep roster. Our line will feature high-quality designs, detailed accessories, buildable forts, and a truly epic range of figures to collect.”
Launching in December 2018, the Fortnite Battle Royale Collection will be available for purchase at retailers around the world. Additional Fortnite lines from Moose Toys, ranging from micro-collectibles to battle playsets, will hit stores in 2019.
