Fortnite is the biggest game in the world right now. Even if you do not play the game you will no doubt have heard about what a huge success their Season 5 has been already. For as big as Fortnite has been in 2018 there has been one thing missing….. merch!
Every big game these days has a lot of merch for it. For me Forbidden Planet is my biggest comic book store and while there is a lot of Marvel, Star Wars, DC, Game Of Thrones and so on. There is also a ton of things like Overwatch, Street Fighter, Warcraft, Mortal Kombat and many other popular video game franchises as well that all have their own merch section.
Well, fans of Fortnite Battle Royale will soon be able to have some really cool Fortnite stuff in their game rooms, on their desks at work or even in their backpacks to play with at lunchtime while they are at school.
Funko is the company that is going to be making the Fortnite products and they have said that there will be ten different kinds of Fortnite products. They mention Pop Figures and Key Chains which is a give in. As they say ten I would imagine that we might see some Funko Fortnite Bobble Head figures, Funko Fortnite Reaction figures and I would bet my next mortgage payment on that we will get a few different series of Funko Fortnite blind boxes!
People love Funko and people love Fortnite so I see this as being a smash hit. While I am not a huge fan of the whole blind box thing. I do think that Funk prices their toys and other items very fairly so getting a Fortnite Funko Pop will not only be pretty cool, it will also be very affordable.
Funko has said that the first wave of their Funko Fortnite line can be expected by the end of the year. If you have kids that love Fortnite my advice is, do not sleep on these toys! These are going to be one of the most wanted items for Christmas 2018!
