On Saturday Funko, the nearly 20-year-old Everett-based company that has sold its coveted Pop! and other licensed action figures and collectibles for years online and through traditional retail outlets, is opening a store of its own: a 17,000-square-foot space housed on the first floor of its new headquarters, a five-story historic building in downtown Everett (2802 Wetmore Ave.).
Director of marketing Mark Robben is expecting a crowd for the grand opening which will include entertainment, food trucks, prizes, signings, artists and—of course, exclusives. “We put up blocks of hotel rooms.” he says. “They called us a while ago and said, ‘You are out of rooms.’”
Check out five of Funko's greatest Pacific Northwest-related Pops! figurines of all time.
Washington's own Chris Pratt may have recently split with wifey Anna Faris, but this mini 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Star-Lord figurine will help you remember the comedic, intergalactic times.
Funko immortalized many of the characters from the Twilight series, which was based on the tiny town of Forks, Washington, but vampire Bella is our fave.
Even in figurine form, FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (of the Washington-based Twin Peaks series) has impeccable hair.
One of Washington's pre-grunge rock greats Duff McKagan looks equally as badass as a decorative 2-inch toy than he does rocking sold-out stadiums with Guns N' Roses.
