Yesterday, I emailed Funko Support about an idea that they should bring Save The World Funko Pops into production since BR is getting a line of pops soon. I got an email back today, this is what it said.
Thanks for reaching out to us! I would be happy to share your request for Fortnite Save the World figures with my larger teams. I can also give you some insight into a few factors that allow us to create characters if you're interested in learning more about how we work!
Beyond what fans are looking for, one of the largest factors behind what we're able to create lies in licensing rights. That's a fascinating topic in itself, and if you're interested in hearing more, our Funkast (aka our Funko podcast) recently had a segment on licensing. You can find it here, and the licensing conversation is in the first 10 minutes.
Our artist and production schedules are another big factor. Would you believe that, last year alone, we introduced over a thousand new figures across our Vinyl lines? This isn't even including existing figures that are still in production, or items from our Plush, Home, Apparel, or other product lines. We love creating new figures for fans, but the requests (and our own wishlist!) are always something we need to balance in our jam-packed art and production cycles.
We are incredibly devoted to our Funko community — you're the reason we all love doing what we do each day — so while I'm not able to make you any promises, I absolutely will pass your wishlist onto our licensing, art, and production teams! In the meantime, I'd recommend signing up for our newsletter if you don't already get it — that's a great place to hear exciting product and company news!
Thank you, The Funko Support Team"
Anyone from Epic, if you are seeing this, this would be an AMAZING idea. Especially since BR is getting their own pops. STW pops would be very popular with not only the STW community but the BR community as well, for the fact that since it's branded with Fortnite, people should be interested in it. I would buy these pops, 100% and I bet a ton of other people would too.
Sorry for the long post, but I hope this can happen soon.
