If there are two unavoidable truths, this is the time and Pop Funko! That’s especially true as Halloween creeps over us.
It might feel a bit late, but Funkoween 2022 is Funko’s helpful way of letting us know that we’re halfway to All Hallow’s Eve. That may be a scary fact for some of us, but for fans of pop culture collections, it’s one of the highlights of this year’s multi-day show that reveals the freshest and scariest new Funko Pops!
This is Funko’s third Funkoween event. Despite having a lower profile than 2021, a three-day run compared to five years ago, it’s definitely just as popular with collectors.
Funkoweens has previously brought us a wave of exclusives from movies like Craft, Zombielandand Killer Clowns from Space. In 2022, the show revealed the classic Universal Horror monster and the Stephen King pop variant holding a red balloon. Who doesn’t want to stare at them from the bookshelf? In 2021, the event brings a wave of ruthless Disney villains and unforgettable Jaws Movie Moments.
We expect icons from horror films, TV, and video games to fill this year’s event, including new variants and new designs for some of the iconic characters.
