McFarlane Toys is producing the figures and it revealed the very first one – the Cuddle Team Leader. Fittingly that’s the character dressed as a teddy bear.
It’s coming with a few accessories and a stand. “The Fortnite brand has taken on global status and continues to grow each day. 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,” said Todd McFarlane, Founder of McFarlane Toys to Comicbook.com.
“We’ve been fans of Todd and McFarlane Toys for years and years,” said EPIC Games Creative Director Donald Mustard earlier this year, “and it’s been a dream come true to have an opportunity to collaborate with them. I’ve seen some of the prototypes and they’re so sweet… I think players are just going to be blown away.”
There will be two waves initially. The first one will feature 4 figures from the original skins. The second wave will feature another 4 figures with later skins. If proven to be popular enough, there will be even more waves.
All figures are 7-inch tall (17 cm) and will have additional accessories. McFarlane says it’s working hard on making the first wave available by the end of the year. No prices have been announced yet.
