Funko Teams Up with Warner Bros. for a San Diego Comic-Con Pop! Up Shop [UPDATE]

Funko’s Pop! Up Shop (get it?) was one of the biggest offsite hits of the con last year – a place where attendees could score awesome exclusives, scope out cool art, and more. It always had a line out the door.

This year, the Pop! Up Shop is getting a bit of an animated make-over, as Funko teams up with Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera to offer another year of awesome exclusives, only available at the offsite. Daffy Duck is even getting all-dressed up for the occasion, as he will get a special Superhero variant available only at the Pop! Up Shop

The shop will be open Thursday-Sunday 10AM-3PM at 448 West Market Street in the Marina District, directly across from the Grand Hyatt Manchester.

[UPDATE July 7]

Funko has just unveiled the line-up procedures the Pop! Up Shop this year, and it’s similar to last year. It’s essentially the same as last year, in that line-up will be first-come/first-serve, and those who arrive will need to form a single line. There is a limit of one of each item per customer. You can read more about the process on Funko’s site.

    I could care less about the panels. I go to other conventions that have one-on-one photo ops like wizardworld, ECCC so panels are a bore. Autographs are ok only if you can get pictures. Signatures are worthless next to photo memories IMO.

  • maxhdrm

    That’s probably better asked from the funko shop itself. It could come down to a city ordinance and considering its a distance from the convention center, it’s not going to have the security that CCI contracts for crowd or crime control. I only know there is typically a line but will be my first time. They don’t open until 10am so I’d have to say you are pretty safe that early.

  • Akiba4tN8

    That would surprise me NOT AT ALL lol

  • Djai Freehugs

    You are not late. I advised emailing me so I can tell you what our game plan aynakusidj@yahoo.com

  • leezus2000

    I was in the Fukno line starting around 11:30 12ish. My friend is a Pops obsessed person and has about 1000 of them which spans 4 rooms. I don’t care at all about the stupid things so I feel I was probably one of the only objective people standing there. My friend didn’t really explain the whole thing until we were already heading down to San Diego. We came from the Palmdale area. I had originally thought we were going to go to a store that was doing a special opening at midnight for the beginning of Comic Con. I had heard my friend mumble something about how they have these special give away spots. I didn’t realize that we were about to basically sit on the street like homeless people or stupid girls that want to meet New Direction (or is it One Direction or No Erection? one of those). I also thought this was happening near comiccon so that I could at least snap some photos with some crazy cos players and the religious freaks daming comic lovers to hell and telling us that Jesus is coming (all over your face). No none of that. My friend also had not been to San Diego to know that downtown is not a place where you can just park right near the event. So it took us three hours to find a place. (i stopped and had pizza). We ended up parking near actual people that lived in tents on the street and I told him that was actually the end of the Funko line, which he actually believed it for a moment. Since we were carrying portable chairs the tent city also thought we were moving in or somethings. A lovely young lady with no teeth let us know that the 5.0 was coming right behind her. I assume she was meaning police. (that was who gave me the advice where I could park and no one would be going near it (they would have to go through this little village of campers that smelled of urine and lost dreams.)

    Anyway, I tried to make the best of it and hung out with the my friend and these people who many of them had paid to be at comic con and had good hotel rooms they could have been sleeping in but instead were there. I jokingly said then can i go use your room? (that dude was paying to stay at the Marriott and he was on the sidewalk.) he thought he might lose his place and called the other guy who was sleeping in the real bed to come down and stay there so he could pee. I explained that if he had to pee in the future Its cool I wont pull the “hey you got out of line” We were 260 and 261 in the line. Which didn’t actually seem like even that far since I went around and counted only 150 or so were there. I did see a good handful of empty chairs and there was a few closed tents, I also figured that obviously people were going to hold it for their friend or if someone was smart just hired a line person on Task Rabbit to do the whole thing for them. I mean if you can afford to spend 300 on these stupid dolls that no one even takes out of the box. Then you should be in the income bracket where paying a 100 bucks to not have to go is also affordable. (I know that isnt the reality, sigh). So my friend spent all night refreshing the Barnes and Noble and FYE and Hot Topic sites to try and get the pops that had just been released to those places while he waits to get the ones in the morning. He used up not only all of his phones battery he also used up two external batteries I had one of those that was brought to jump start the car in case of that needing to happen. Barnes and Nobles site was experiencing problems and everyone near me that was not asleep seemed really into repeating the process of trying to get to the check out with their purchase and one person would get there and others would have the site time out. It sounded like the most boring new version of the Candy Crush saga, So I went around the block and watching people sleep and resisting the urge to take photos (although had i known what was to happen that morning I would have.) I might have also given more thought to swiping that idiots laptop that he had open and easily grabbable while he slept. I just knew that if he woke up and I had the laptop that would be kinda awkward and so I let him be. One guy was flat on his stomach and must have been like 400 because he was not at all on that tiny towel he thought would be enough and he seemed to have rolled out because no one was able to sit in that spot. Although she wheezing and snoring was so loud i could hear it as i turn the corner. ($5 says he dies of sleep apnea) When 900 rolled around that’s when all were awake and people put away their camping gear and got into a single file line. Right before the store was to open 945 a guy comes up to one chunk of people (no megaphone just yells quietly) I couldn’t understand what he was saying, but it sounded like something about he was saying come back tomorrow. Which when he repeated himself a bit further down. He states that the only ones that will be allowed to buy that day were the first 200 people and we were 260. Then we will be given an armband that will allow us to make our purchases on Friday morning. I yelled “FRIDAY?
    ! are you kidding? and he responded “oh yeah your guys are way into Friday” as though this was know to all about the 200. I looked and see nothing that says only the first 200 hundred will get to buy. It says First come first serve. I also says no saving spots in line and I can assure you all there were not 250 people there all night. The girl two in from the front got there around 8 o clock with her mom and someone. I remembered because she looked 14 and had the biggest set of honkers that she held down in a tight white shirt. I mean, I am gay and you tend to notice that. So if we are going to play by rules that aren’t written I think the ones that are written should also be enforced. I told my friend that I’m sorry but i am not staying to do this again to get the knick knacks. So then the guy says “if any of your party has stepped away for the restroom, tell them to be back immediately because when they come back, and the person is not there, they dont get anything. Then after hes gone down and said this over and over, I hear him say “We will back out within the hour” to get you the bands. It was now after 10 and we were standing all in in direct sun trying to get shade. I knew my face was going to be red as hell. I wouldn’t have said ok to wait all day in sun. I burn super easy.

    It actually was almost 1220 when they came up with this system where they will give each of us a numbered order form and that way in the morning we just hand them that and they will have it quickly ready for you and it wont take long. Yet no reason why they couldnt just do that on Thursday I mean it was open until 3pm. First come first serve, the only reason that people were treated in this manner was so that the store wouldnt just be empty for the rest of comic con. Well I am so glad that we could waste our time to help your poor company get more publicity. What was so annoying was how everyone was complaining and whining but you know they spent a butt load of money on these exclusives. My friend left money with someone who said they could get them for him. I had sent out notice on facebook that if anyone wanted in to get over there and my friends ex and some of his friends came in. (if you arent going to get mad at funko and do something about it, dont whine that others now are cutting. shut up and take it or no pops for you).

    My friend was actually quite irritated that i gave my order form to a guy who asked that was there all night. Mainly because he was the first to ask and i was done with it. I was going to rip it up after the guy handed it to me, although all i would have done was probably upset people that didn’t understand they are rewarding the companies mistreatment of them by not only abiding by the new rules that they just made up and then said now wait 90 min more for no reason. Funko handed the people bags and told them to clean up the streets from the trash that was left. I said if any of the people i know pick up a bag and start cleaning, I will really hit them.

    We were done and back to the car about 1pm. then the car broke down outside a barnes and noble my friend went to because he loves books (just kidding) because he wanted to get the more pops. I couldn’t jump the battery because no juice was left in that device. Triple A came and we ended up being towed all the way from San Diego to Palmdale and I got home about 10pm.

    Heres a big shock. I tried looking for anyone else that was complaining about this, nope no one, no a peep. They aren’t even that amazing of an item and you people deserve the treatment you get. Next time you get treated like crap and you are holding the money, think for a moment about how you are telling everyone you will lick the shoes of someone that knows that your a pussy, just for a bunch of toys that you don’t play with.

    Dont even start with me on the value and how much they are worth, Sell them and invest in the stock market if you are doing it for profit. You know you aren’t ever going to sell them. I at least am never going to ever get something from the jerks at Funko. Comics are one thing and there are many of them, a plastic toy is nothing, get something cool for a few hundred even a hooker would be worth it (these dudes were not laid by anything hot like ever)

    I did love the crack head street whore that kept doing laps saying to stop looking at her and the slapping her ass. She needs to get her own show. She probably thought she was on television already.

    The numbered order form was not made known to anyone I spoke to. It actually was something that appeared as they came up with later because it was originally wristbands and then they said the crap about the form and how it was for our benefit. I am just sharing what they said to us. Conan yes you needed a badge. If it was already planned out then their was no excuse to make everyone wait 90 minutes to make the forms.

  • Paul Peniscocker

    I said the same thing but i was coming off like debbie downer because I wasnt as excited to get a marvin the martian or a phillip with a flag. I remember when comiccon was about comics and all kinds of fandom. Not pops.

  • Paul Peniscocker

    see above. and know that lived experiences will be the thing you enjoy more in the end and let that be the guide to what you are in line for.

    Hello, Im planning to try and get tickets for sdcc 2018. I am interested in exclusive pops (who isnt) anyways i was wondering say i want a rick and morty exclusive (for example) would i go to the main shop or the pop up stand. Also are they open the opening night at 6 am?

  • Akiba4tN8

    Hi,
    This blog site and Funko will have a comprehensive list of what Pop’s are available at the booth as opposed to the pop-up shop. Be aware that most are “shared” exclusives which u can get at other stores; literally the only difference is the single SDCC sticker. But collectors swear by it, so w/e… Pop-up shop opens 10am on Thursday, but fans (and yes, flippers ) line up well over 24 hrs in advance… I usually only get my Pop’s at other booths like Bait or Funimation, their Exclusives are real exclusives i.e. U can only get them there. Along w/ the Conan O’Brien Pop’s which were much more limited this year. But I’m not a die-hard collector. I did want a few items fr Pop-up shop but I refuse to camp out for anything lol. Time is ur most precious commodity during Con. Good luck in 2018! 👍🏼

  • Akiba4tN8

    Oh, I forgot to mention to take note of daily allocations & lottery rules… Exhibit hall booth is a lottery. Pop-up shop (at least so far) has been first come first serve. Worst thing would be to waste sooooo many hours in line to come up w/ nothing. Read previous posts in this article, u’ll learn A LOT.
