If there are two inescapable truths, it’s time and Funko Pops! That’s particularly true when Halloween’s creeping up on us.
It might feel a little late, but Funkoween 2022 is Funko’s helpful way of telling us that we’re halfway to All Hallow’s Eve. That may be a scary fact for some of us, but for fans of the pop culture collectibles, it’s one of the year’s highlights ⏤ a multi-day event revealing the freshest and scariest new Funko Pops!
This is Funko’s third Funkoween event. While it has a lower profile than 2021’s, running three days compared to last year’s five, it’s bound to be just as popular with collectors.
Previous Funkoweens have brought us exclusive waves from movies like The Craft, Zombieland, and Killer Klowns from Outer Space. In 2022, the event revealed classic Universal Horror monsters and a variant Stephen King Pop! holding a red balloon. Who doesn’t want that staring down at them from a bookshelf? In 2021, the event brought us a wave of adorably mean Disney villains and a memorable Jaws Movie Moment.
We expect icons from horror movies, TV, and video games to pack out the event this year, including new variants and new designs for some iconic characters. Every Funko Pop! announced is scheduled to release in the months leading up to Halloween, but many will be instantly available to preorder from leading retailers. Keep an eye out for exclusives you’ll have to hunt down from specific stores.
Funkoween 2022 begins on May 17 and runs through to the 19th. We’ll keep this page updated with the latest announcements and brand new Pops that will be flying off of shelves soon.
May 17: Funkoween 2022 Day 1

The Silence of the Lambs: Hannibal Lecter Funko Pop!
The 1991 version of Hannibal Lecter returns to Pop! form for the first time in three years. This may be his most disturbing look yet ⏤ suave and calm in his hospital, as chilling as it is collectible.
