When Pop Mart Ximen first opened in late December 2023, people queued around the block to get in and check out all the exclusive merchandise and opening offers plus see the magnificent MEGA SPACE MOLLY showcase.

Even the Pop Mart Ximen building looks the part, with vintage movie theater vibes inside and out.

From the Pop Mart range to a floor by floor overview, here is our ultimate guide to Pop Mart Ximen Mega / flagship store in Taipei, Taiwan in 2024 (with photos):

A visit to Pop Mart Ximen

We visited Pop Mart Ximen most recently in early 2024 about a month after it first opening – thankfully the long queues to get into Pop Mart in the first few days of opening has since vanished – but it is still VERY busy inside!

As you first approach, the Pop Mart Ximending store literally is MEGA – it looks huge and is reminiscent of an old school movie theater, complete with Hollywood style cinema billboards and lightbulbs.

In fact, even if you aren’t a Pop Mart fan, it is still so worth a visit, just for the experience and opulent interiors.

The Pop Mart Ximending store has four floors, which we’ll look at in more detail:

  • Floor 1 – Blind Boxes and Exclusive Pop Mart Merchandise
  • Floor 2 – PopBean and IP Merchandise
  • Floor 3 – Broadcast and Mega Pop Mart
  • Floor 4 – Monthly Showcase (alas closed on our visit).

Pop Mart Ximen – Floor 1; Blind Boxes and Exclusive Merchandise

The first floor (ground level) at Pop Mart Ximending is brimming with blind boxes (mystery boxes), cabinets full of collectibles plus some huge Pop Mart figures.

Be sure to check out the huge Skull Panda Red Beret Diva model in the elevator plus the massive Pop Mart Skull Panda taxi in the window (which you can also see from outside).

We found floor 1 the busiest place, where most people were frantically searching shelves and shaking the mystery boxes – lots of staff were also on hand to help out!

Floor 2 – PopBean and IP Merchandise

The second floor of Pop Mart Ximen is all about its IP range, featuring characters such as Disney or Harry Potter.

Here you’ll find such characters as Disney’s Snow White, Toy Story, Ariel The Little Mermaid in Pop Mart form plus League of Legends, awesome Astro Boy toys and Care Bears.

Also look out for Pop Mart perennial favourites like Pino Jelly, Cry Baby, Dimoo and Pucky.

On level 2, there is also a customizable area where you can create your own unique PopBean figurines or frames. Many of the frame types were sold out when we visited – but it had just opened so they will likely restock soon.

The create your own customizable Pop Mart PopBean figures (where you fill transparent cases in the shape of popular Pop Mart figures) started from 1700 TWD for the figure with 28 pieces to put inside.

Floor 3 – Pop Mart Broadcast and MEGA Pop Mart

For us, this was our favourite floor at Pop Mart Ximen as the setting and styling was superb and looked incredible.

Easily the most Instagrammable Pop Mart Ximen floor, we can only describe this as a MEGA Space Molly museum, celebrating MEGA SPACE MOLLY in all her forms – it almost felt like a sublime showroom.

On the third floor, there is a Pop Mart Broadcast studio where they do live streaming sessions (it looked like they’d just finished a Pop Mart live stream when we visited as the studio was full of toys).

There was also a small theater and Pop Mart VIP lounge (for Very Important Pop Marts we guess!).

Floor 4 of Pop Mart Ximen was open in early 2024 when we visited but it promises to host Pop Mart exhibitions and beautiful things to buy in the future.
