Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – May 2015
Collectible Geek is a relatively new subscription based around Funko Pop Vinyls – my husband’s favorite thing to get in any geeky subscription box!
This box I’m reviewing is the May Collector’s Cache which is the “Cowabunga Cache.” (They let you know the theme ahead of time).
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache
The Cost: $33.50, includes shipping. (FYI – we purchased a 6-month subscription, and with shipping and tax the total came to $201.35, or $33.55 a box).
The Products: “Each Collector’s Cache comes with five meticulously chosen items from the staff at collectibleGEEK, featuring a different theme each month.”
Ships to: US and International (additional shipping costs)
Good to Know About Subscriptions: “This is a 6 month subscription to our Themed Collector’s Cache. Our subscription works a little different than most do though. If for any reason you don’t want to receive a month’s theme all you have to do is send an email to [email protected] by the 5th of the month; with your name in it, type SKIP THIS MONTH in the subject line and we will just skip that month for you.”
This box they included an info card detailing the items in both the regular cache and the “I Want It All Exclusives” upgraded subscription. (Looks like POPs
Raphael POP! Keychain – Value $5
Michelangelo Shot Glass – Value $2?
These mini POPs are just too cute! And this shot glass is totally something I would have bought my husband at Urban Outfitters years ago…
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Comic – Value $4
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Can Hugger – Value $7
My husband loves TMNT and comics – so I think this is his favorite item in the box. I’m sure he’ll use the “can hugger” too!
Foot Pad To Do List – Value $3?
Kraang Magnet – Value $2?
These are two desk items my husband loved. This is what every page of the To Do List looks like:
TMNT MiniMates Series 2 – Value $6
I love that this MiniMate comes with a pizza!
Micro Posters – Value?
Subscribers will receive 2 out of 4 micro posters. Here are all the variations:
Verdict: My husband loves TMNT, so this box was pretty much a win as soon as we opened it. It seems like Collectible Geek is now sending full-size POPs in the Want it All upgraded subscription (which is a little disappointing), but we still liked this box.
I had to guess on a lot of the values of items in this box since some are exclusive (or just not easy to find online), so I’m not sure exactly how it stacks up to the cost of the box, but we’re definitely happy with the curation.
What do you think of the May Collectible Geek subscription box?
