Funko Amps UP Original IP, Considers eBay Collab

Funko recently discussed a slew of new initiatives during its Q1 investors’ call, which was transcribed by

Seeking Alpha

.

During the call, the company shed light on its first-time original IP Wetmore Forest and its discussions with eBay to develop a collector’s marketplace for its figurines.

Barnes & Noble is expected to launch Wetmore Forest books, figures, plush, games and puzzles in late Q2. The collection had a smaller launch last year, but the Barnes & Noble deal marks a significant expansion for the brand.

Funko also reported on the call that it had begun discussions with eBay about a potential secondhand market for its various licensed collectibles. The marketplace would serve as a place that Funko Pop! collectors could buy, sell or trade figurines.

While no deals are confirmed, the conversations point to Funko’s growing interest in diversification of its portfolio.
