Searching and collecting you Funko Pop’s is exciting, but once you have all these boxes and piles of Funko’s, what do you do? It would be pointless to spend all the time, money, and energy getting all your favorites to have a few display Pops on your desk, and the rest hidden away. What you need is a Funko Pop display case!
what should you consider when buying funko pop display cases?
No matter what style you like or how many you have to display, there is a display case out there for you, it just might take a little imagination. A few things to consider when buying anything for your display pops are:
- What style would best suit your home?
- How long is this project going to take?
- Does this fit in my home? (Let’s reduce the clutter and not add to it!)
- Is it easily kept clean?
- Will it last?
- And what kind of warranty does it have and can you return it if it isn’t for you?
We have pulled together a list of different funko pop display ideas (setups) to use in your home to show your style and safely share your collection for everyone to see.
If you are looking for a more simple and modern look for your home, then lack shelves, also known as floating shelves, are the way to go. They are relatively inexpensive depending on the type of material you get, and it can come in different sizes, colors, and styles. Picking durable hardware to secure it to your wall is the most critical part of any shelf set up and is even more critical with floating shelves.
The Ikea version of this shelf can hold up to 11 pounds of weight, is just over 43 inches long, and comes in a few different colors. This shelf has space for roughly 6 Funko’s with enough space between each to not look cluttered. If you get creative with it, you could also add a narrow acrylic shelf on these to have two levels on your floating shelf to hold double the Funko Pops. If you keep yours in the box, you can stack up, and the amount you can display is limitless!
These shelves are also a convenient shelf from Ikea, and you typically see them used for leaning frames, artwork, books, and records. These are also an excellent option for your Funko Pop display case. Mosslanda shelves for funko pops are an excellent option because they hold 10 Funko Pop boxes perfectly! The lip on the edge of the tray holds them safe and secure as well. Keeping them in the box will make it much easier to stay on top of dusting them and make your collection look fabulous.
5 Shelf Bookcase
This type of display has a lot of opportunities to be customized. Depending on the quality of the shelf you go with, and size will decide if the shelf is a good option or not for your display. The Billy bookshelf from Ikea comfortably holds eight Pops and leaves enough space to put smaller collectibles in front. These also offer the opportunity to add lighting if you are capable! There are different sizes to fit into any space you have.
Acrylic display shelves and cases are an excellent option for a full 360 view of the Funko Pops. There is a massive selection of them from small to large. Acrylic shelves make for stylish table displays and standing units. It’s a higher-end looking display and can be jazzed up with different lighting, sizes for multiple sized Pops, and endless creativity.
For a more free-floating system, this is the way to go. It can easily hold up to 100 Pops, depending on how you customize it. It is relatively inexpensive but will take some work on your end since it is open-ended on how to set it up. Levels and stud finders are your friends here! Also, don’t forget to order the screws.
Copco spice 3-Tier shelves
That’s right, a spice shelf. It’s a great way to display multiple Pop’s levels on bookcases, shelves, tables, and anywhere you want to show off your stuff. These would fit on any bookshelf to give you maximum space. An average size one could easily fit 15 or more Pops out of their box. These come in different sizes and colors so you can customize them to your liking. Accessible and inexpensive at it’s finest.
4-Shelf Glass Curio Cabinet
These displays give a more sophisticated feel and look. Glass cabinets are excellent for large funko pops or very unique and rare ones. Since it has a higher price point than most funko display cases, you’ll want to determine if this is necessary for your collection. You could also add lighting to it, but make sure you clean the display well because it would show all the fingerprints! Maybe use this for the large Pop you just snagged? These cabinets are a significant investment to display all your rare Pop’s but do not crowd the shelves because it will lose its high-end feel.
With so many options to choose from, it can be daunting when thinking about your needs when displaying your Pop’s. If you keep your style in mind and how many you have to show off, it will help guide you to the right choice.
