A funko blog worth bookmarking – thank you!
The majority of collectors have the following two questions ‘How much do Funko Pops weigh?’ and “What are the standard Funko Pop box dimensions?”
Here’s the answer…
Funko Pops weigh differently depending on the pop; however, your standard size is 4 inches (10cm), with the Funko Pop box dimensions being: 11.5cm x 16cm x 9cm. The difference between a Funko Pop in and out of the box is ~1cm.
funko Pop box dimensions you could expect to see
Since weight largely depends on the type of funko figure; Here’s a breakdown of the different sizes and weights of a funko Pop.
- Pocket Pop (1.5 inches/3.8cm),
- Standard Size Pop (4 inches/10cm)
- Supersize Pop (6 inches/15cm, 10 inches/25.4cm, (16 inches/40.64cm)
First, let’s talk about Funko Pop’s weight.
Many factors can influence value — the first and most obvious — whether it’s a Pocket Pop or a 19″ Super-Sized Pop! Now, I won’t mention the Pocket Pop’s weight as that’s insignificant, and as for the 19″ Batman, according to Amazon.com, it’s 1.87 pounds! Not much at all!
Other influences are the design of the Pop itself. For example, whether it’s holding a weapon or has big clothes. Or even whether the figure is sitting or standing! However, that being said, your standard Funko Pop will weigh between 0.25 and 0.40 pounds in its original box. Outside of the box, it will be even less!
We recommend keeping the pop figure in the box for shipping funko pops, as the package will cushion it on the journey!

supersized Pop #1 (6 inches/15cm)
The super-sized Pop is fascinating because it encompasses PopS between 6, 10, and 19 inches! Often, they’ll be larger than life characters. You can still find these in stores, but they won’t be as expected. We’ll start with the 6-inch Funko Pop.

We only have one example of this size. It’s more of a novelty and comes in at a steep price! However, you can guarantee any collector would love this gift!
While we’re on a roll, check out these two-pack Pop’s! These are standard-sized Funko’s that come in larger boxes because there’s two of them! Usually, they’re characters that would often be paired together in-universe.

I had to include this one, as it made me laugh! A famous scene of Spider-Man vs. Spider-Man from “Into The Spider-Verse.”
Funko Pop Multi-pack: Star Wars – Han Solo & Princess Leia

This Funko Pop, for the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strike Back, really proves what we meant when we said the two-pack Pops usually belong together!
How do you ship your Funko Pops?
For starters, we’d recommend double wrapping the box in bubble wrap. A square foot of bubble wrap only adds around an ounce of weight to your Funko Pop – but you shouldn’t need that much for one figure! This is an excellent practice for shipping. I’m sure you’ve seen reviews from people receiving Pops with damaged boxes. Chances are, the shipper didn’t get bubble wrap!
Moving on, an 8″ x8″ corrugated box is perfect for packing one Funko Pop. Though, if you’re sending more than that, you’ll need something larger. In that case, we recommend checking out stores such as Staples. Bring your Funko with you and ask for the salesperson’s best advice!
Why Staples? Because some locations, especially in America, have a UPS center attached to them. If yours does, they won’t only find you the right box, but they’ll also take you through the entire shipping process and make your life that much easier!
Here’s a neat little trick!
If you ordered the Funko Pop online and it came undamaged, why not package it in the box it came in before sending it on? You know that box worked, so consider it recycling!
Additional resources about funko pop box dimensions
Amazon usually uses boxes bigger than they need to, and line the cardboard itself in bubble wrap instead of wrapping the Funko Pop. It still creates a barrier to protecting the Funko Pop box; however, you could consider lining the box and covering the Funko for extra protection.
For the labels themselves, check out Dymo Label Writers! We know — nothing beats a useful old permanent marker, but if you’re making a habit of selling Funko Pop’s, you can design fantastic shipping labels right from your computer, then print them straight from your writer. It looks great, and you can be sure the shipper won’t misread it in transit!
Follow these tips, and you’ll be a Funko Pop shipping pro in no time!
- Know which category of Pop your toy falls under.
- Buy a box online or from a retailer such as Staples! Use an 8″ x8″ corrugated box for one Standard Funko — anything more extensive, and you must go beyond. (Ask your retailer for more help if needed!)
- Line your box with bubble wrap, and wrap the figure in bubble wrap, too!
- Print a label using a Dymo Label Writer if available. If not, use a clear permanent marker and a roll label! (Check out Amazon Basic’s here!)
- Take your package to your nearest UPS center, or if not available, your local shipper. Double-check the address is correct, and send your gift away for a holiday surprise!
