One day, we posted a video to TikTok (per the usge) talking about a custom shelf I made for a customer. The shelf was a pretty big one meant to take on a Funko Pop! Movie Moment that I didn't own, but was able to get the sizing down for.
To make the shelf, I basically scaled up our popular Open Bottom Box Shelves to the size needed, and then 3D-printed it with the specifications to ensure strength.
Little did I know (no, I did know) that video would drum up some new requests for other shelves!
Following subsequent messages requested a number of different options; a shelf for the Goat Boat from Thor: Love and Thunder, a shelf for the Hall of Justice, and one for the Cloud City Duel. And then of course I remembered I already had another movie moment which I forgot to mount ...
So, I got to work!
For the Cloud City Duel Movie Moment, I had to make sure the shelf was large enough to accommodate the box, but also looked good on its own in case it was seen from the bottom. In fact, that's often my goal as sometimes you want to mount something on the wall above eye-level.
For this one, I scaled up the "hex" design shelf for Funko Pop! Albums as I knew it'd look great. Since each shelf is about 10" wide by 7.5" deep, this was going to be a big shelf! And it's a good thing I got both of my Creality CR-10S Pro V2's working too!
The shelf ended up really nice and sturdy and shipped out the next day after printing.
Another doozy of a shelf was the shelf for displaying the Goat Boat from Thor: Love and Thunder Funko Pop! Rides collectible! That Funko is pretty nuts and pretty awesome, just as it was in the movie. In fact, I think that's one of the Movie Moments that has the most "life" in it if you get my drift -- a lot of movement in it.
I wanted to make sure that it had sort of a Norse theme to it, but also captured some of the movement of the pop. Both someone on TikTok and my lovely wife suggested that I make it sort of angled out, so I did that! I ended up using the
Web of Wyrd pattern for my favorite shelf (out of the 3 options we have) as it's got that kind of ancient, Asgardian feel to it.
I was able to make the shelf both strong and fit the Rainbow Bridge of this Funko Pop perfectly - the pop just slides right into the angled version. Of course there are two other static versions, but they're just not as fun!
Another person reached out about the Hall of Justice Funko Pop that I didn't even know existed! I asked them if this was my justification for just buying it for myself, and they agreed it was! Once I had it in hand, I got to work creating a wall display for it.
I wanted to make sure the shelf was going to be stable - as always - but had a way to ensure that the Hall of Justice didn't just fall right off given the slightest nudge. So, I created little tabs that edge out around the front sides of the Hall of Justice, just to make sure it doesn't go anywhere. You can slide the long base into the shelf, then push the top of the Hall of Justice onto the base, and voila!
Finally, I realized I hadn't mounted my Batman 80th Movie Moment - it's just been sitting for quite awhile! I decided I'd just make this one very simple, with two slim yet sturdy L-shaped shelves made to fit the depth of the pop's base.
After you screw them each into the wall, you can just place the Movie Moment onto them and you've got a really simple, inexpensive wall display for this great celebration of Batman's 80th birthday. And let's not forget to remember this awesome closing scene from Batman Begins!
Alright - if you made it this far, I hope you're pickin' up what I'm layin' down: I can make a shelf for that pop! More than happy to! So if you've got a Funko Pop! that you want to display, whether it's:
- Funko Pop! Rides
- Funko Pop! Moment
- Funko Pop! Town
And remember we've already created shelves to fit a number of different types, like:
- Pop! Deluxe
- Pop! Die-Cast
- Pop! Super (6-inches tall)
- Pop! Game Cover
- Pop! VHS Cover
- Pop! Album Cover
- Pop! Comic Cover
- Pop! Standard
and of course out-of-box pops!
