Funko’s pop culture themed vinyl figures, action toys, plush, apparel, housewares and accessories are ubiquitous. I’m sure many readers of this blog might own a bunch of their fun products. Our house is filled with them and our daughter, Eliana was actually a Funko Fanatic of the Week.
We have visited the incredible Funko store in Everett, Washington and were thrilled to hear that a second store location was opening in Hollywood this year. Funko will celebrate the arrival of this brand new location with a special event taking place on Thursday, November 7th, 2019.
Guests attending the VIP preview event will get a first look at the 40,000 square-foot store featuring life-size Funko figures, a toy version of the Batmobile, and a custom POP! factory. Funko Hollywood isn’t your typical brick-and-mortar retail location, but rather an immersive experience with an awe-inducing array of pop-culture themed “worlds” and highly shareable social media moments.
The Funko Hollywood store will officially open its doors to the public on Monday, November 18, 2019. Funko plans to celebrate with a special Grand Opening event. The store will be located at 6201 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles.
Funko Hollywood’s Grand Opening event will kick off at 10:00AM on November 18. There is no cost to enter, but entry will be subject to availability. Those interested in attending will be able to pre-register online. There will also be a standby line onsite for those who are unable to pre-register, but still hope to attend. Additional information will be announced in the coming weeks through Funko’s social channels.
The Hollywood store will be the second brick-and-mortar retail location for Funko. The company’s first and original store, located at its headquarters in Everett, Washington, has already become a destination for pop culture enthusiasts and more. The Hollywood location will be brimming with highly shareable social media moments, including life-size Funko statues and immersive “sets” inspired by some of the biggest pop culture fandoms.
