'Fortnite:' First Look at New Funko Pop Vinyl Line

Fortnite is everywhere. We mean everywhere! On Wednesday, it was announced that the latest title from Epic Games has officially become a billion-dollar franchise, which makes it the perfect time to announce that the studio is collaborating with Funko for a brand new Funko Pop line coming soon! We already have the first in the line confirmed to be the Rex Pop, but now thanks to the popular Streamer Ninja's wife — Jessica Blevins — we've got our first look at them as real figures, not just concept art.

But the real question is ... will they have Back Bling? Probably not, but if the earlier leak is anything to go by, these two are just the first of many. Fortnite has so many fun and interesting skins in the world of Battle Royale, making the team over at Funko Pop giddy with all of the potential figures they can release.

As far as the earlier leak goes — according to Instagram user SerlentPops, who is usually spot on with his Intel, the first wave of Fortnite Pops is on the way. See them below.

  • Rex
  • Skull Trooper
  • Moonwalker
  • Tower Recon
  • Cuddle Leader
  • Omega
  • Brite Bomber
  • Raptor
  • Love Ranger
  • Black Knight
  • Merry Marauder
  • Highriser Assault Trooper

The CEO of Funko himself, Brian Mariotti, previously confirmed the good news.

"We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with Epic Games to create the inaugural Fortniteproduct collection and to bring these characters to life for the first time. This collection will be a true celebration of Fortnite's incredible popularity and cultural significance, and we believe our Funko Fortnite collectibles will strongly resonate with fans of the game. We look forward to expanding this collection and combining our leading product capabilities with our strong retail platform. Ultimately our goal is to create a powerful merchandise strategy for the Fortnite brand, as well as bring these amazing collectibles to fans around the world," Mariotti said.

The new line of Victory Royale goodness is expected to arrive just in time for this year's Holiday season. Both major retailers and online stores will carry the new Fortnite collaboration, though word on exclusives has yet to be revealed.
