Just a few short days ago, toy manufacturer Funko revealed that it will be bringing a new line of Pokémon Pop! Figures to stores. Starting with Pikachu (of course), this series could include a variety of different creatures - Funko has even invited fans to share their suggestions. As if Pokémon wasn't quite big enough on its own, however, the company has now secured a Fortnite license, too.

Yes, the Switch's latest online multiplayer shooter phenomenon will be receiving its own line of Pop! toys, with 5 Star figures, Pint Size Heroes, Vynl, keychains, POP! apparel and more on the way. It's hardly surprising, given Fortnite's crazy levels of success, but two huge franchise announcements in one week is pretty good going from Funko's point of view. The company's CEO, Brian Mariotti, has said the following:

"We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with Epic Games to create the inaugural Fortnite™ product 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 collectables 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."

This collection is set to launch in "holiday 2018" and will be available to purchase from a wide range of retailers worldwide. No specific figures have been shown off just yet, but we're hoping for some adorable Loot Llama goodies.
