An official Fortnite Nerf Blaster is coming next year

Fortnite is getting Funko Pops, because of course it is, and it's also getting the Monopoly treatment. On top of all that, a Nerf Fortnite AR-L Blaster is coming next year, too. 

The Fortnite Nerf Blaster was actually announced last month, but this is our first opportunity to actually see what it looks like. The slightly cartoon-like design looks very much like the real deal, and in case there's any doubt it says "Fortnite" on the side. 

According to IGN the weapon has flip-up sights and "rapid-fire motorized blasting" fed by a ten-round magazine. It comes with 20 Elite darts, runs on 4 AA batteries—not included—and will sell for $50, which is a hell of a price for an otherwise unremarkable Nerf blaster. It's expected to be in stores on June 1, 2019.   

The Funko folks also shared more information about those Fortnite-themed Pops, Pocket Pops, and Pint Size Heroes. There's still no solid date on those, but Funko said they're "coming soon," and a full gallery of the little units can be seen now at funko.com.
