Game On At McFarlane As They Announce Multiple New Licenses

Our good friends at McFarlane Toys are certainly having a good week, with the announcement of two brand new licensing deals for two of the biggest video games currently on the market!

Starting this fall McFarlane Toys will be producing new construction sets based on the award winning retro-modern sidescroller video game ‘Cuphead’! The game itself is made using high quality hand drawn animation and is heavily stylized; inspired by classic cartoons from the 1930s. Each of these new construction sets is planned to stay true to the stylized nature of the game by bringing Cuphead, Mugman, and even the villainous Devil himself to the forefront and recreate memorable sequences from the game.

Also launching this fall is an all-new set of premium collectibles based on the massively popular online shooter game ‘Fortnite’! McFarlane Toys is planning a whole line of ‘Fortnite’ products including 7″ scale premium collectible figures, related high-end accessories, and resin statues. Fortnite itself is an action-building game that allows you to team up with friends for a co-op campaign or to drop directly into a gargantuan 100-player PVP battle to save the world from a horde of monsters! The game itself is even free to download on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, iOS, and (soon) Android!

Hopefully, we will get some more insight into what some of these new figures and collectibles will look like after not too long! In the meantime, it looks like this fall is going to be a busy time for McFarlane collectors and gamers alike!
