The 12 Rarest Funko Pops Ever Made

Funko Pops are as adorable as they are collectible. Due to their large heads and oversized personality, they can also be common to rare, depending on how the company releases them. For instance, certain Funko Pops were produced in extremely small numbers. So, which are the rarest Funko Pops ever made, and what could they potentially be worth? Let’s talk about them.

While there are many popular Funko Pops that have thousands of figurines around the world, there are many rare ones, as well. Do you have any of these? If so, they could be worth a small fortune.

1. Freddy Krueger

The Freddy Krueger Funko Pop was so rare over 10 years ago, that the few that were sold fetched around $1,000 each. And these days, you could probably fetch closer to $3,000. Not bad!

The Freddy Krueger limited edition had a run of only 48 pieces and was only available at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con.

However, if you want a Freddy Krueger Funko Pop, and can’t get your hands on the 2011 Limited Edition option, there are other Funko Pops that have been released that you can grab!

2. Glow in the Dark Franken Berry

Another 2011 San Diego Comic-Con release, Franken Berry has managed to increase in value from around $725 to over $6,000 in the last decade.

It’s not surprising that this Funko has been able to attain such outstanding sales figures, given that the Franken Berry Pop is both distinctive and popular among Funko fans, and most collectors enjoy acquiring all of the numerous iterations of the brand’s mascot.

The Freddy Funko glow-in-the-dark version of Franken Berry is a much-desired cereal mascot. It’s so sought after that it’s almost impossible to find, and even if you do, you can expect to spend a fortune on it.

However, there are other options if you’re starting your collection. While not as popular, or glow in the dark, they’re still super cute.

Our Pick
Funko Pop! Franken Berry
  • Great for fans of the cereal mascot
  • With the box, it measures 10 inches in height

3. Gold Dumbo

Only 48 of these gold metallic Dumbo Pops were created by Funko, and 2013 San Diego Comic-Con attendees were the only ones to receive this unique Disney Funko Pop.

If one of these uncommon, big-eared animals turns up in your collection, you may end up with as much as $4,000. That’s because less than 500 were made, making the item rare.

This Gold Dumbo is difficult to find; not only because of its high collector’s price but also because Disney enthusiasts, even those who aren’t Funko Pop collectors, might be interested in this one. Of course, if you want a plain Dumbo to add to your collection, that’s much easier to find!

4. Clown Paint Dumbo

An even rarer Dumbo Funko Pop is the Clown Paint Dumbo. At the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, an elephant dressed like Clown Dumbo made its premiere, and it soon rose to the top of Funko’s most popular (and rarest) products.

With only 48 in existence, a collector may need to shell out almost $7,000 to purchase this expensive artwork. And some Clown Paint Dumbo’s have sold for around $9,000.

5. Superhero Stan Lee (Red Metallic)

Stan Lee’s death in November of 2018 was a sad day for many Marvel fans all across the world. Since then, there have been several more Stan Lee Funko Pop releases honoring the renowned author’s appearances in his MCU movies.

Those who were fortunate enough to obtain one of the initial releases are one of 12 individuals in the world who can claim to possess this extremely rare Funko Pop Vinyl figurine. The superhero red metallic variation of Stan Lee, released in October 2017, is currently valued at over $10,000. But, honestly, we wouldn’t recommend selling it if you do have it!

Most likely, you won’t be able to get your hands on one of the 12 even if you do have the money, but there are some less rare Stan Lee Funko Pops you can have if you’re a fan.

6. Golden Ticket 2-Pack Funko Pops

The 2016 Golden Ticket 2-pack Golden Edition of Willy Wonka and Oompa Loompa might be the rarest Funko Pop ever made. When these special edition Funko Pops were released, they were done as a prize, and only ten winners received them. These Funko Pops are worth at least $70,000 each, and the two-pack went for $100,000.

Unfortunately, at this point, you most likely won’t get access to these, as they are also considered one of the most sought-after and rare Funko Pop packs. In fact, the one that sold (and that has ever been sold) went to a private collector, and it’s worth millions of dollars.

But no worries if you can’t get your hands on these gold Funko Pops. They still have some Willy Wonka options available for us regular people. And these are still worth a little something!

7. Glow in the Dark Clockwork Orange

Another expensive and rare Funko Pop is Alex, the main character from the beloved movie A Clockwork Orange. The limited edition “Chase” glow-in-the-dark version has sold for more than $32,000 in 2022 on eBay. Quite expensive!

Alex, along with a few other A Clockwork Orange figurines, was part of a 2012 collection that was never available in stores due to licensing and copyright concerns. Only 24 still exist in the entire world, making these extremely rare.

In fact, these are so rare that we don’t even have another option that you can grab for your collection unless you’re willing to spend over $5,000 on a figurine.

8. Bloody Jaime Lannister

You’ll enjoy this Funko Pop if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones. It’s a “bloody” Game of Thrones Jaime Lannister version that was only made available during the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. Be willing to shell out around $13,000 for it.

Why? This Funko Pop isn’t easy to obtain. There are 12 ordinary and 12 glow-in-the-dark Bloody Jaime Lannister Funko Pops available around the world. But, if you want any other of the Game of Thrones options, there are a few online that you can grab, although they won’t be as rare as this one.

9. Metallic Mickey Mouse

Now, the Metallic Mickey Mouse isn’t technically as rare as some of the other Funko Pops on our list, and that’s because there are currently 480 in circulation. However, compared to more common Funko Pops, that’s still fairly scarce!

This silver version of the well-known Disney mouse was made available back in 2011 for San Diego Comic-Con as a part of Funko’s Comic-Con exclusives lineup. This mouse has an estimated value of a little over $1,000, which is still a great price for something that was only available during a conference.

10. Planet Arlia Vegeta

A particular Dragon Ball Z figurine that showcases a distinct Vegeta is the Planet Arlia Vegeta Funko Pop. It’s really difficult to locate this vivid Pop, and not just because it costs around $3,000. It was an exclusive Funko Pop from the 2014 New York Comic Con.

Fans of Dragon Ball Z will want to purchase this Funko Pop as soon as they see one because it is incredibly popular with Funko Pop collectors all around the world. And, luckily, it’s not the rarest on this list, with around 5,000 in circulation.

11. Metallic Ghost Rider

If you’re not a Disney fan or don’t like the super “happy” Funko Pops, no worries, there are other rare Funko Pops out there for you. Take the Metallic Ghost Rider Funko Pop as an example.

Freddy (the Funko Pop name) is dressed as Ghost Rider, complete with a leather jacket, chains, and skull head. Also, the metallic sheen makes him appear considerably more dramatic than he would without it.

Only twelve of these figures were ever made and were only available at San Diego Comic-Con. So, it’s rare indeed, but one of the best dark options.

If you’re trying to find a less expensive and rare option, they’re out there! Although, we can’t admit that they’re as cool to look at.

Our Pick
Funko Pop! Ghost Rider with Bike
  • Fan-favorite stylized design
  • Weighs 4.2 ounces
  • Recommended age: 15 years and up
We earn a commission if you make a purchase, at no additional cost to you.

12. Holographic Darth Maul

This 1 in 480 special glow edition of Darth Maul was a brand-new release for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. The original retail price was significantly cheaper than the almost $7,000 you’d spend to get your hands on one today.

The Star Wars Pop! series included the holographic Darth Maul Funko Pop based on the Darth Maul figure from the movie series. And many people want to get their hands on it to complete their Star Wars collections.

Can’t get your hands on the holographic version just yet? There are some regular Darth Maul figurines that you can still grab for under $25.

The 12 Rarest Funko Pops Ever Made: Wrap Up

Some of it simply depends on luck and acquiring the things you truly enjoy. And if you can’t get your hands on the “rare” items, no worries. You should collect what genuinely makes you happy!
