Hasbro has announced its release of a new range of Fortnite blasters – and it's partnering up with the team, SoloMid (TSM), to promote it.
While they are not wearing their branded TSM jerseys in the promotion, the three-man competitive team – comprising of "Myth", "Daequan" and "Hamlinz" – will appear in Hasbro's international commercial campaign. TSM's "non-competitive influencers" will also be involved, talking about "their best Fortnite battle moments in real life".
According to The Esports Observer, TSM negotiated directly with Hasbro, which paid "to sponsorship fee" to TSM in a separate deal to the licensing arrangement it has with Fortnite publisher Epic Games.

The range is now available to pre-order the US Hasbro website with prices starting from $ 10 for Microshots Dart-Firing Blaster – including a Llama-styled one – and rise $ 50 for the AR-L Elite Dart Blaster. Sadly, there is no sign of the UK web site yet, but we have reached out to Hasbro and will update as / when we know more.
But that's not all. Hasbro has also tweeted about Overwatch Nerf MicroShot range too, as well as a new selection of Overwatch figures:
