Funko will expand its original line of Pop! Monsters with a second wave of characters, custom video content, and a new dedicated retail space to further broaden the Wetmore Forest experience.
Wetmore Forest is a storyline created by Funko in which creatures and monsters live in an enchanting forest with magic lurking around every corner. The Wetmore Forest branded collection features three product lines, including Funko’s iconic Pop!, plush, and keychain categories. In conjunction with the new line, Funko Animation Studios will produce and release a series of online videos and other media content to showcase the characters of the Wetmore Forest world.
On Aug. 18, Funko will host a rockin’ Wetmore Block Party in Everett, Washington to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Funko’s flagship store, along with the city of Everett’s 125 year anniversary. Fans will get to experience an in-store Wetmore Forest-themed game and interact with their favorite monsters in their natural habitat.
Funko’s second launch of lovable lighthearted Pop! Monsters include Sapwood Mossbottom, Mulch, Grumble, FoxPaw, Liverwort, Magnus TwistKnot, Angus Knucklebark, Smoots, and Slog with Grub. Each Pop! Monster has its own customized storyline that helps tell a piece of the Wetmore Forest story. To further enhance the story behind this whimsical land, Funko will also be launching an interactive online experience.
Wetmore Forest Pop! Monsters are available to purchase at Funko’s flagship retail store, online at Funko.com, and at specialty retailers.
