Saturday August 19th I was lucky enough to enter the brand new Funko Headquarters in Everett Washington, though that is not when the adventure began, that started on Friday August 18th. Without getting into to much detail, sometimes plans change and you have to make adjustments on the fly, so when I arrived into Seattle on Friday, I had to get my car, check into my hotel, and go hangout outside in a line around 9:15 pm to 7:15 am Saturday morning. I was not lucky enough to get a ticket time before hand, so instead of spending hundreds of dollars to go up north and end up with nothing I waited with other friends in line, we had some rotating through the night. With an event like this you need to have a trustworthy group and work together, luckily we had some locals that gave me a blanket and I used a chair. I ended up staying up for 23 hours straight, and the mentioned 10 hours lined up outside in the elements to make sure to attend and to bring pictures back to share with you all. With that said lets get started.
Funko announced some things that weren’t up and running for the opening. First is Pop! Factory, which is a way to customize and make your own Funko or vision a the facility.
In addition, it was also announced that a couple of the artists have decided to volunteer time on the weekends o teach local children all about drawing and art and the business. I have a feeling this will be a great thing for the locals and might end up being a favorite.
So besides all sorts of loot to buy, regular common pieces, exclusive pieces to the event and or the store, the place was brimming with all sorts of display pieces, and secret crowns to find. I’ll include a few pieces from the different categories, but not everything in case you do get a chance to check it out you can still be surprised.
Funko Head Quarters is located at 2802 Wetmore Ave, Everett, WA 98201.
