Thanks to somewhat lax parental supervision while visiting friend's homes, I saw the first two Hellraiser movies at an age when I was perhaps a bit too young for it. Thanks to memorable gore and all around weirdness, the series has stuck with me, despite most of the later entries in the franchise being somewhere in the forgettable to terrible range. I missed out on the McFarlane Hellraiser toyline, and they're a bit hard to find for reasonable prices these days. Fortunately, Funko has continued its march of making Pops of any license they can get their hands on. According to the packaging, this is Pinhead from Hellraiser III specifically. I don't know if there is some subtle costume variation, or Funko was only able to license the third movie or what, but it's Pinhead. He even includes a little Lament Configuration that he holds, although it doesn't have the distinctive detailing on the sides. Which is understandable given the small size.
