Plus, I can now confirm the LEGO "Polybag Llama" rumor! 🔥
The idea of bringing these two iconic brands together doesn't seem all that surprising, given their respective colossal successes. It was almost inevitable that such a collaboration would eventually see the light of day. By the way, this is not the first time that rumors have circulated on this subject. Already in September, leaks had hinted that Lego and Fortnite could unite to the delight of fans.
Hints from the end of August/beginning of September
It all started with a video featuring content creator Loserfruit, as part of Lego's "Play Unstoppable" campaign. Loserfruit, a fixture in the Fortnite community, with his own skin and in-game accessories, has also explored other video game universes such as Minecraft. She had already been sponsored to play Lego 2K Drive. The connection between Loserfruit and Fortnite is undeniable.
However, one detail caught the attention of the community: a custom BrickHeadz, appearing at the beginning of the teaser of the video, faithfully reproduced the official Loserfruit skin and its pickaxe in Fortnite. The use of these elements undoubtedly required the approval of Epic Games, which owns the rights to the game. You can find the tweet alluding to this discovery below.

All of this information points to an increasingly likely conclusion: a major collaboration between Fortnite and Lego is in the works. This is not the first time the famous Danish company has tried its hand at making a name for itself and knows how to capitalise on successful franchises. Whether it's Star Wars, Mario, Jurassic Park, or Harry Potter, Lego has always been able to take advantage of the most popular universes. And while the Fortnite craze may have had its ups and downs, Lego continues to shine with its creativity and adaptability, promising an exciting future for fans of both brands. So stay tuned, because this collaboration promises to be epic!
