Epic Games’ Fortnite is floss dancing its way into the Funko portfolio.

The king of pop culture collectables has unveiled a full range of Fortnite goodies across its Funko Pop!, Pint-Size Heroes, 5 Star, Vynl, and Pocket Pop! Keychains brands inspired by the battle royale shooter.

Some of the most popular skins are present, from the timely Skull Trooper to the Black Knight, Merry Marauder and Brite Bomber.

If all of this looks like a foreign language, here’s a breakdown: Fortnite players can equip skins, which are quirky outfits such as a suit of medieval armour, skeleton costume or even a ginger bread man, for their in-game characters to switch up their look and express themselves on the battlefield. These can be earned through a mix of playing the game and buying them with microtransactions and is a major draw for the game’s millions of fans.

The Omega skin, a high-end customisation option for long-time players, is also part of the collection, alongside, the Highrise Assault Trooper and Cuddle Team Leader.

The range is “coming soon” according to Funko’s website and are available to pre-order online now. To support the launch, the company has teamed up with a host of video game streamers on Microsoft’s Mixer platform for a schedule of giveaways, unboxings and costumed gameplay streams. Fans are also invited to get involved in the fun on social media with the hashtag #FunkoFortniteFriday.
