Funko is getting spooky for its return to the Big Apple • The Pop Insider
Believe it or not, it’s that time of year again: New York Comic-Con (NYCC) is only a month away, which means some of the biggest names in pop culture are gearing up to show off their latest products and limited exclusives at the Javits Center. One of the biggest names? Funko, a company returning to the New York show for the first time since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the show, the renowned collectibles maker will adopt the October schedule of the show to offer “Frightmare on Fun Street”, a Halloween and horror-themed booth experience. During the experience, attendees will get a closer look at Funko show exclusives, which will be available at the booth and in limited quantities through funko.com and/or shared retailers. The booth will also feature exclusives from Funko affiliates, Loungefly and Funko Games.
Speaking of exclusives, Funko revealed its exclusive collectibles this week on social media. The company will bring a variety of Pop! and Soda figures at NYCC, featuring fandoms ranging from Yu-Gi-Oh! and Borat to Harry Potter and Stranger Things.

Outside of the showfloor, Funko will also be hosting a separate Funko Fright Night event. This ticketed event will take place on October 7 and is only available to NYCC badge holders. The event is a costume party, where attendees will receive a special bag of fun and enjoy celebrity appearances. Ticket prices and information will be available soon.
NYCC fans can experience Frightmare on Fun Street at booth #1419 October 6-9.
