The Funko Hollywood store lets you make your own POP figure!

The Funko Hollywood store is the newest Funko store in North America and right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s also walking distance from the Pantages Theatre, and yes, you definitely need to add this to your Los Angeles road trip.

Visiting the Funko Hollywood store - livingmividaloca.com

We took the chiclets to the Funko Hollywood store to check out the larger than life Funko Pop creations, purchase some exclusive merchandise, and of course, create our very own custom Funko POPs!

Funko Hollywood is 40,000 square feet of whimsy, adventure, fun, larger-than-life photo opportunities and immersive sets inspired by your favorite worlds, characters and moments.

The first photo opp is right as you enter the store. You’ll see Freddy and a friendly Funko store rep who might be open to taking your picture (just ask nicely!).

Grab a map from the entrance as well so you can plan out your visit. This map also has a price list on the back of the sheet as you’ll find that merchandise is not individually marked.

We started our visit entering near the Freddy statue, and followed the map by working around the perimeter of the store.

The Guardians of the Galaxy room and the Wizarding World room are set up with photo opps – perfectly lit.

Everyone visiting the Funko Hollywood store was very accommodating and stood by waiting for their turn to take a picture.

The Little Mermaid

My favorite part of the store was The Little Mermaid shipwreck photo app. It’s super cute and huge!!!

By the way, you’ll definitely want to pick up merchandise as you walk through the store. Make sure to grab a Funko shopping basket. It’s narrow so you won’t bump it into people as you walk through the store.

Frozen

After The Little Mermaid photo opportunity, make a right and walk through the Frozen section. There you’ll see Anna, Elsa and Olaf!

The whole scene is super cartoony and so cute.

You’ll also see non-POP figure merchandise here – like Loungefly backpacks and wallets.

TV

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, this is one spot you won’t want to miss. You get to climb atop the dragon with blue lighting surrounding you, and the white walker in the background.

Fright House

This is perhaps the creepiest part of the Funko Hollywood Store. All the major horror characters can be found here, including Bettlejuice, Annabelle, Freddie Kruger, and Jason.

Inside the house, you’ll also find Ghostbusters t-shirts and bins of other fright favorites including plushies. Don’t forget to stop and take a look in the mirror for a spooky surprise!

Star Wars

Perhaps one of the most popular spots at Funko Hollywood is the Star Wars section. This is one of the larger areas with multiple photo props like the speeder and the Cantina.

All around this area are also more POP figures and Star Wars Loungefly merchandise.

Anime & Games

This room can be accessed from multiple points. Inside there are enormous POP figures featuring popular anime characters rotating in the center of the room.

Music & Sports

This genre is off in a corner, but has hard-to-find POP figures like Freddy Mercury and KISS artists.

Saturday Morning

My all-time favorite part of the Funko Hollywood store is this one right here – Saturday morning. It’s just like it sounds – a combination of vintage candy brands, cartoons in the background and your favorite food brands!

This room is huge and has a ton of photo opps that you can pop yourself into like The Flintstones car, and even a huge bowl of Captain Crunch cereal! It’s a dream come true.

There’s more than just POP figures here – you’ll also find t-shirts and Funko cereal boxes – with real cereal! It’s like being in a huge commercial with all your favorite brands and cartoons. The feeling that you get walking through that room is such a blast.

Disney

This last part of the Funko store leads you into the factory. The designers did a great job with this space to really make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale.

The streets are paved with faux pebbles and enormous buildings surround you making you feel like you’re in a story book.

There’s also merchandise lining the streets, featuring some of your favorite Disney characters… and villains!

POP Factory

Finally, what truly sets this store apart is this space where you can make your very own Funko POP! figure.

You have two options to make your own figure – either choose Freddy Funko, or a Monster POP! figure. They’re each $15 and takes about 20 minutes to customize and put together.

The space is split into two different areas. You start off by choosing a head and a body and then you go down the line… like a little Funko POP! factory.

My chiclets put together a few different options until finally deciding on their final figures. This is why I’m estimating 20 minutes at creating one – there are so many possibilities!

Once you put your figure together, you’ll make a line to pay at the register and the person working the register will use a mallet to finish off the POP! figure and ensure that it doesn’t fall apart. You’ll also get a box for your figure to use as a display.

On busy days, the register at the POP! factory will also be able to finish your transaction to pay for your other merchandise. It’ll help you avoid a longer line by the front entrance.

Tips for visiting the Funko Hollywood store - livingmividaloca.com
