The one good thing about currently being stuck in Seattle for work is getting a chance to attend the Grand Opening of Funko’s new HQ. If you are in the area or made plans to travel and attend this Saturday, here are a few things youll need to know.
Most of this info is on their blog in various posts so we tried to sum it all up here. The main thing is it is going to be a ticketed event. Tickets are free on a first come first served basis.
Due to anticipated attendance, entry into the Funko HQ Grand Opening will be a ticketed event!
Tickets distribution will begin at 7:00am in the Wetmore Plaza area (the public space on Wetmore Ave north of Funko HQ, on the other side of California St) until all tickets are claimed. You will see a table and sign for ticket distribution in this area.
Tickets are for one person for one trip through the store. You must be present at ticket distribution to receive a ticket. You will not be able to save a spot in line for somebody else.
A new group will enter the store at the top of every hour between 10am and 7pm. The store will be cleared between each session. You will have one hour to browse, shop and experience Funko HQ!
You will not be able to line up for your session until the previous session has entered the store. For example, the 11am session will not be able to line up until the 10am session has entered the store.
I hate to see people spent insane amounts of money for Star Wars figures on the secondary market, even if I am the one selling it. If you missed your chance on these they are currently up for pre-order again over at Entertainment Earth. Pre-orders get filled on a first come, first served basis so don’t wait.
