Funko will be hosting an exciting beach bash-themed event featuring a notable mascot, exclusives, and a special D.J. this weekend’s Wondercon 2022.
Comic Conventions are the holy grail or the meccas of pop culture media, celebrity appearances, and exclusive collectibles, especially everyone’s favorite Pop dolls. After all, this is a brand notable for always making a huge splash at large well-known Comic Conventions and Expos.

Funko announced that they would be returning to this year’s Wondercon and having a three-day special event. This special event is called Freddy’s Beach Bash.
Party With Funko At Pop Pier
Toy collector Mike Becker founded the company then sold it in 2005. Since Becker sold the brand, the company has expanded to the highly successful company we know today. The brand has made manufactured many recognizable themed merchandises. Those merchandises include licensed accessories, plush, apparel, action figures, bobbleheads, and Vinyls.
This weekend, attendees visiting Wondercon can purchase some of these licensed and exclusive merchandise. Even joining a beach bash!

The Wondercon Beach Bash event will also include an appearance from the brand’s mascot Freddy Funko. Attendees who attend the event will have a unique chance to play games and win special prizes by random selection. Limited edition tote bags featuring a Freddy Fukno beach bash design will be available to receive. Included in the exciting event is a 20-foot inflatable Tiki. Besides the Wondercon exclusives, other Funko inspired merchandise from legendary franchises will be available. Then finally DJ Chino will make a special appearance.
Since I am attending Wondercon this weekend, I can’t wait to visit and possibly participate in the Funko Beach Bash. Or, of course, purchase more Funkos Pop as I am an avid collector (especially the Disney-themed Pop Vinyls). That Wall-E Pop vinyl would look nice with my collection of Disney Pops. I hope they don’t get sold out once I arrive there! Wondercon 2022 is this weekend April 1-3.
