The days of admiring photos of friends and family on your office desk are over. Soon, you’ll be able to turn your best friend, parent, sister, cousin, or yourself into a Funko Pop! instead with the new, completely customizable Pop! People line. In these turbulent times, hold your loved ones close as a 3.75-inch figurine.
The demand for customizable Funko Pops is nothing new. Funko’s website has even offered a “Pop Yourself” feature on its site for years, which lets fans customize a virtual Pop! avatar. But now, you can finally get a real Pop! of yourself to put on your bookshelf alongside your favorite Hollywood stars — your own personal meet and greet!
The Funko headquarters in Everett, Washington and the Funko Hollywood location will exclusively offer this personalization process with mini Pop factories that provide thousands of combinations — hair, eye color, skin color, apparel, and more — to ensure your Pop! looks just like your spouse, ex-husband, high school crush, etc.
Customers will be able to visit either store and browse the various options via a kiosk. Then, they fill out an order form for their designated Funko builder, who will assemble the personalized Pop and put it in a customized, one-of-a-kind box for $25 each.
This new program is set to launch on Dec. 11, which means you can celebrate your loved ones this holiday season by giving them a cartoon sidekick of yourself to add to their collection of British royals and Disney princesses. Make the people in your life pop!
