Funko Pop - Everett, WA

I had no idea what Funko was before they opened their store front here in Everett. I guess they have had their manufacturing here for a while before they decided to move their headquarters here. The best way I can describe Funko if you have never heard of them: They are like bobbleheads but their heads don't move. They have Funkos of everything: the Royal Family, Game of Thrones, Ninja Turtles, Harry Potter, athletes, and so much more. 
WARNING: if you come to Everett on a weekend be prepared to wait outside for awhile. 

Funko opened in August 2018 but before they opened they were constantly adding new tiems for show. Willy Wonka is my favorite in the meeting room that has now been changed to showcase Wetmore Forest animals.

As soon as you walk into Funko theres a set of lockers because they don't allow food or drink. So they provide lockers, but I recently found out people will get there super early to grab chases or limited supply then place them in a locker until their friends can get there. 

The first room that you'll see is the Anime section. This room has a little bit of everything from cartoons to scary movies. In this room we have gotten anything from Care Bears to Michael Myers.

When they first opened they had the meeting room but now they recently changed it. I honestly still don't know what to think of it. I am honestly not even sure what they are. They go by Pop Monsters. 

After you leave the Anime/Forest room you'll be directly looking at the sports wall. It's not thing special but this is where you find anything sports related. As a sports fan it's not much and thats a big reason we come is to see the sports figures they have. This summer they came out with a MLB collection featuring Mike Trout, Max Scherzer, Clayton Kershaw, and Aaron Judge. I was really bummed there wasn't a Brave selected, and Gary about the Brewers. Last time we went they had 30 NFL stars ranging from JJ Watt, TJ Watt, Sam Darnold, and JuJu. 

The next big room is the super hero/villians room. I would also say Lifestyle room. It's a little bit of everything that have had sections specifically for Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Royals, Grease, and singers/entertainers. Towards the back of the room is where you'll find most of the super hero or villian. 

Out in the open they have a handful of tables and other sections mostly Disney things. I have found my mom Winnie the Pooh collection. They have Toy Story, A Night before Christmas, Princesses. It's pretty cool to see the area because it's insane on what the create. 

The next room is probably the most popular because of the lifestyle Funkos area everywhere. This isn't a place where we normally find Funkos we like but still fun to walk around and see what they have. Deadpool is a one that has been popular lately. They have turned him into everything. 

Connected to that room is the Star Wars area. They have everything you could possible want Star Wars related - bags, lanyards, stuffed animals, etc. 

They also have this new area where you can build your own pop! You choose between making a Freddy Funko or Monster. We made a Freddy Funko that looks like my husband. He has a baseball bat in one hand, and ice cream cone in the other. The monster is the better deal for $15 because the monster has 3 or 4 holes to add accessories too. Either way it's a lot of fun.  

I would highly recommend coming to Funko HQ if you are in Everett or Seattle area. Funkos are priced anywhere from $10 - $35 depending on size and release. Most of the time they are $10, but during comic con, some of them were $15. A family could easily spend a few hours here, but there are some great resturants and breweries near by for afterwards.
