MELBOURNE, Australia, Aug. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Moose Toys today announced a new partnership with Epic Games to create a wide range of Fortnite™ mini collectibles, in a deal brokered by IMG.

MOOSE TOYS AND EPIC GAMES PARTNER TO LAUNCH FORTNITE™ BATTLE ROYALE COLLECTION.

Moose Toys will be the global partner for Fortnite branded figures 3 inches and under, starting with a new line to be unveiled this fall. The Fortnite Battle Royale Collection will give fans the opportunity to collect a huge roster of characters and miniature scale fort building sets.

Mark Rein, Epic Games co-founder, commented, "We love the idea of giving fans the chance to build a huge collection of figures and forts at an awesome mini scale!" 

Johnny O'Neal, Vice President of Marketing at Moose Toys said, "Fortnite has the coolest characters in gaming, and we can't wait to apply our expertise in mini-collectibles to such a deep roster. Our line will feature high-quality designs, detailed accessories, buildable forts, and a truly epic range of figures to collect."

Launching in December 2018, the Fortnite Battle Royale Collection will be available for purchase at retailers around the world. Additional Fortnite lines from Moose Toys, ranging from micro-collectibles to battle playsets, will hit stores in 2019.

Fortnite is the action building game from Epic Games that lets you drop into a massive 100-player PvP Battle Royale or team up with friends in a co-op campaign to Save The World against a horde of monsters. Craft and loot in giant worlds where no two games are ever the same. Fortnite Battle Royale is free and available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, iOS, and soon, Android.
