The Icon Series is Epic's way of introducing big streamers and celebrities into the game, by creating various skins and other items designed to look like them and to represent things they are most famous for.
We've seen many celebrities before, but when it comes to Fortnite content creators, up until now only Kathleen "Loserfruit" Belsten and Tyler "Ninja" Blevins had their likeness present in the game.
And now Lachlan Power will be joining them.
With almost 15M subscribers on YouTube, Lachlan is one of the biggest Fortnite content creators in the world, so it comes as no surprise to see him featured in the Icon Series.

Lachlan will boast a full set of cosmetic items, which will include an outfit, pickaxe, back bling, and emote, and it will be obtainable through the Item Shop in Season 4.
Lachlan will fully show off the skin on 7th November at 6:50 PM EST.
Fortnite v14.50 update comes on Tuesday, 3rd November, but Lachlan's Icon Series set will come at a later date in the Item Shop, on Thursday, 12th November, at 7 PM ET.
Epic will probably sell them all in a bundle and as individual items for a higher price.
But don't worry, if you are really impatient and you want to have your favourite content creator's skin as soon as possible, read further to find out how.
