Funko celebrates its 21st anniversary this year, and there’s no better way than to open up a mega-store right smack on the iconic Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.
This marks Funko’s second and largest store to date, measuring in at a whopping 40,000 feet, which is more than double the size of the 17,000-foot flagship store near the company’s headquarters, in Everett, Washington.
Right at the entrance as you enter, shoppers are immediately treated to the iconic scene from the Black Panther movie, known as Warrior Falls, Life-sized, and almost 6 feet tall Funko Pop T-‘Challa, Shuri and Okoye statues stand around the waterfall, perfect for the “Wakanda Forever!” photo op. Oh, and there’s Captain America on the side, and Spidey just above too.
The rest of the store is broken up into multiple zones across various IPs and categories. From the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Disney, Pixar, to horror, TV and movie icons.
