13 Simple & Amazing Funko Pop Shelf Ideas

1. Shelves

Zigzag Shelves

If you're searching for a simple yet creative method to display Funko Pops, use Zigzag shelves. This display idea is recommended if you have a small collection, as it helps maximize space in the room.

You can customize your shelf design and make varying patterns based on your collection number or purchase one from Ikea. Using zigzag shelves makes displaying your Funko Pops anywhere in the house easy and creative. 

Floating Shelves

After you unbox Funko Pops, you'd want to keep them in a mint figure like other collectors, whether for personal, selling, or trading purposes. If this is the case, then floating shelves are another great method to display your collection [1]

This storage idea is perfect if you want to maximize space in a room. You can use vacant walls to display your Funko Pop collection. You can also get creative by using different sizes of wall shelves or fixing them in varying patterns. 

Ledge Shelves

If you're into minimalistic design, picture ledges are one of the ideal display options for your Funko Pops. This method is neat for arranging pop figures and requires only a few installation tools. 

You can place this at the end of the hallway, in between cabinets, or over your office desk at home. Also, you can use different types of wood for added accent or purchase shelves from Ikea. 

Acrylic Display Stand Shelves

Take your Funko Pop collection to the next level with the acrylic display stand - the perfect storage idea for avid collectors! This method is often used to display luxury bags and shoes, so displaying your Funko Pops through this will surely make it more fancy-looking.

In addition, using acrylic display shelves is a cool way to showcase Funko Pops, especially if you plan to take them out of their box.

2. Display Case

Display Case

While some mistook Funko Pop figurines and other action figures as toys, collectors see them as art that should be treasured [2]. If you consider yourself a Funko Pop specialist, using a display case is a sign for serious collectors. 

This method is an ideal display option if you decide to unbox your favorite Funko Pops, especially the rarest figure in your collection. Display cases are also recommended for building your own Funko Pop museum.

3. Geek Stackable Shelves Display

Since the Funko Pops line has occasionally expanded, displaying Geek stackable shelves is the best solution for organizing a growing collection. This method works similarly with a display case, but it's much better, as you can keep it in good condition after you unbox it. It can also comfortably fit 3 to 5 figures.

It offers more space than bookcases; you can stack them up, so keeping pop-figure boxes won't be a problem. 

4. Bookcase


If you're looking for sturdy display cases, a bookcase is your best choice. This one offers a lot of space and is ideal if you have a bunch of Funko Pops to display. You can also use the display cases to fill a room with different sizes, characters, and figures.

For example, you can use a bookcase to display your favorite figures or line them up on one shelf to be visible at eye level. 

5. Action Figure Stands

Our team also recommends using action figure stands instead of display cases. Action figure stands are easy to assemble and perfect for showcasing Funko Pops after unboxing.

However, choosing a safe location should be considered when using this method. Display your Funko Pop on a game room or bookcase table. You can also use this if you store your Pop figures inside an acrylic or glass cabinet.

6. Stack Them (For Boxed Items Only)

Stack Them (For Boxed Items Only)

Nonetheless, if you're keeping Pop figures boxes, you no longer need to purchase a display case or bookcase as you can stack them up. This method costs nothing, and displaying Funko Pops with their boxes is the true sign of avid collectors.

Do note that when stacking your Pop figures with their boxes, it is recommended to choose a safe location, such as a spare room intended for storing collectibles. 

7. Acrylic Riser Stand

Now, if you're purely collecting Funko Pop characters without the intention of selling them, opting for the acrylic riser stand allows you to admire your favorite figures in their full glory. 

This method is ideal for showcasing Funko Pops on your gaming den or display table after you unbox them. Furthermore, the acrylic riser display stands are a space-saving method, as you can place them on bookcases.

Special Tip: Use Backlights/LED Lights

With the nostalgia, Funko Pop figures bring, there is no limit to collecting as you can keep varying genres and all the characters in your collection [3]

So, if you want to enhance the beauty of your collectibles, we recommend using LED lights to illuminate each figure perfectly, be it in a box or an unboxed Funko Pop.

By using LED lights on your displays, you can stick them anywhere since batteries power them, and they are easier to fix. 

You also don't have to pay an additional price to install LED lights, as you can cut them to your desired size. Arranging your Pop figures with the extra illumination would make them more stunning.
