The much-anticipated debut of the most important vehicle in the Fortnite video game as a 13-inch play set is upon us, as the Battle Bus drops into action aisles at major retailers everywhere beginning today. Expected to be a top toy this holiday season, the Battle Bus includes the famed hot air balloon, and comes packed with two exclusive figures: Burnout and Funk Ops. The vehicle takes its place as the flagship piece in Moose Toys’ Fortnite Battle Royale Collection of 2-inch scale action figures, vehicles, and play sets. The Battle Bus has space to display figures on top of the bus, and can hold an additional 15 passengers inside.
“The Fortnite Battle Royale Collection is already the bestselling licensed brand in the action figure collectibles category,” says Joe Smith, global marketing director, Moose Toys. “The introduction of the long-awaited Battle Bus is highly anticipated by Fortnite fans, and with strong presales and major support from retailers, it is expected to be one of the hottest toys in the industry this year.”
By the end of October, the Fortnite Battle Royale Collection will include the following lineup:
- Battle Bus Play Set
- Mega Fort Play Set
- ATK (All-Terrain Kart)
- Glider and Figure Assortment (Only at Walmart)
- Solo, Duo and Squad Pack Figure Assortments

Looking ahead, Moose Toys expects to have more than 100 characters available across its full range of Fortnite toys.
