A list of potential minifigure parts that may be included as part of an upcoming LEGO x Fortnite collaboration have begun to emerge.
Earlier this week the LEGO Group released a tease via its social media accounts, suggesting that news of an imminent crossover with Epic Games’ Fortnite might be revealed soon. An image of a brick-built Loot Llama was all we had to go on at first, but the game’s upcoming Big Bang event next week might be when full details of the long-awaited LEGO x Fortnite collaboration are finally revealed.
The current season of Fortnite closes out on December 2, with an update to the game that will see rap star Eminem make an appearance, plus multiple new game modes rumoured to arrive in the coming weeks. One of the latter is said to be a full-on crossover with the LEGO Group that could add minifigures and building modes to the popular third-person shooter.
Details then emerged yesterday of a number of rumoured skins that may be added in the forthcoming update, with LEGO minifigure versions of classic Fortnite characters said to be appearing in the game. Now comes word of various minifigure parts that might also be available in the update with which players can customise their brick-based avatars.
Twitter user GMatrixGames has revealed (via 1414falconfan) a variety of elements such as hairpieces, hats, helmets, caps and other items that are said will be available for non-Fortnite minifigures to use in the game.
The source first reported on a potential LEGO x Fortnite collaboration back in January 2023, a crossover that is now imminent. The minifigure parts selection looks to include pieces from themes such as City, Castle, Space and many others, but there’s no way of knowing at this stage if any of them will actually be included in the update.
The Big Bang event is due to kick-off in Fortnite from December 2 at 7PM GMT, with recent rumours suggesting that the LEGO-related content might be arriving from December 9. For now though, do treat all of the information above with a large pinch of salt.
