Funko's Disney SDCC 2017 Exclusives

Funko announced their 8th Wave of SDCC 2017 Exclusives. This wave of exclusives features all DISNEY!!! This wave includes a Glow in the dark Jolly Roger from Pirates of the Caribbean (1000 LE), Mr. Toad from Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (1500 LE), Hei Hei from Moana, Glow in the dark Negatron from Darkwing Duck, Flocked Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, Flocked Chip and Dale 2-pack POP! Vinyl and Aladdin & Abu with Magic Carpet Dorbz Ridez.

WOW! So many great exclusives. Really want the Jolly Roger and Mr. Toad POP! Vinyl Figures but these will be tough to get! Even though most of the SDCC Exclusives are shared, we have a feeling that certain ones that are limited to a certain number etc... most likely won't be sold as shared exclusives.

Wetmore Forest & POP Monsters Tumblebee

Funko announced POP! Monsters Tumblebee Vinyl Figure. Tumblebee is the first monster revealed  from Wetmore Forest which is Funko's Original Line / Characters designed by various artists that work at Funko.

Bio on Wetmore Forest: 
Somewhere deep in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, there is a wooded glen known as Wetmore Forest. Among the great mossy, bearded trees, shrouded in mist, lives a mysterious furry band of critters that come in all shapes and sizes, each with their own distinct personality. They are called POP! Monsters.

Who is Tumblebee? 
He’s at home in the misty meadows of Wetmore and gets his name from the bold stripes across his furry body and his love for tumbling aimlessly among the wildflowers. He is well liked among the other creatures of Wetmore because he is kind, caring, and honest.

Everyone loves Tumblebee! They know that through rain and snow and highs and lows he can be counted on to protect you from danger and give you a bear hug and a big laugh when you most need it.

You can purchase Tumblebee HERE for $15.
