Would you be interested in getting some old-school 3 3/4″ action figures for Fortnite? It appears Epic Games are on the verge of releasing some. Donald Mustard, the creative director for Epic Games, released a couple of images to his Twitter account on Friday showing off a new line of action figures by Jazwares coming your way. These are the classic action figures we used to see back in the ’70s and ’80s, specifically from the G. I. Joe line where a good chunk of the character’s limbs were moveable and poseable.
I grew up playing with G.I. Joe and Star Wars action figures. They were fundamental in shaping my young imagination. In partnership with @Jazwares we have created ‘G.I. Joe size’ Fortnite figures – and our singular goal was to make the very best action figures possible. pic.twitter.com/nZf1kcGJoq

The action figures will be dropping into toy stores, box stores, and online retail on December 1st, just in time for the holiday shopping season. The one thing that the company hasn’t done yet is revealed the entire roster of Fortnite figures you can get, only showing off Drift at the moment. It’ll be interesting to see how many figures are revealed and if they do indeed go the G. I. Joe route and include vehicles you can pose them in.
