Hot Topic Expo 2022 is obviously a holiday in its own right. Funko announced new collectibles and Loungefly accessories this week to celebrate the upcoming retail event. 

Hot Topic Expo is on Dec. 13 and will feature new, Hot Topic-exclusive merch from Disney, Sanrio, DC Comics, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more. The event starts at 8 a.m. PST at and as Hot Topic stores open for the day. 

Four Disney Pops! will drop on Tuesday, including a Jack Skellington Pop! in a pink pinstripe suit holding a black rose, a Pop! Moment featuring Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood, and a deluxe Pop! and Pocket Pop! keychain of Stitch covered in suds in a bathtub. Yuji Itadori from Jujutsu Kaisen will be available in both Pop! and Pocket Pop! keychain forms. DC Comics villain Two-Face is getting the Vinyl Soda treatment, complete with a metallic chase. Two Pop! Rocks items will also be dropping for Hot Topic Expo: a metallic figure of Robert Smith from The Cure and a box set of naked Blink-182 band members, as seen in the “What’s My Age Again” music video. 

Sanrio is getting the Loungefly treatment for Hot Topic Expo this year. While there is a Devil Kuromi Pop! dropping, the highlight of the drop is the Kuromi Loungefly collection (pictured top), which features a Kuromi pin and a Devil Kuromi backpack and lanyard.
