Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - Box

Collectible Geek is a relatively new monthly box based around Funko Pop Vinyls.

This box I’m reviewing is the June Collector’s Cache which is the “Intergalactic 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 Cost: $33.50, includes shipping.

The Products: “Each Collector’s Cache comes with five meticulously chosen items from the staff at collectibleGEEK, featuring a different theme each month.”

Good to Know About Subscriptions: They’ve recently done away with subscriptions – so, if you love these boxes, you’ll have to buy one each month!

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - info

This box they included an info card detailing the items in both the regular cache and the “I Want It All Exclusives” upgraded subscription.

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - tee

Firefly T-Shirt – Value $10?

I can’t find this exact shirt online, but I also don’t think it’s an exclusive. Past exclusive t-shirts had the CollectibleGEEK logo on the shirt, and it’s nowhere to be found here. I’ve never watched Firefly, I know there are a lot of fans though. “You can’t take the sky from me” is a line from the show’s theme song.

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - posters

Micro-Poster 2 Pack (includes one exclusive print) – Value $10?

This micro-posters are from Culture Shock Print co. This is also a special edition sci-fi television set. There are 8 variations of posters that you could’ve received + one exclusive that everyone received. The exclusive is a Firefly print. The second poster was marked as a “Rare” frequency poster, and is a Star Trek – ‘Borg Collective’ recruitment poster. What poster did you get?

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - cards

Star Trek Portfolio Prints Trading Cards – Value $3 (Linked is the 24 Pack set, so the value was derived from the cost)

The artwork on these cards are just beautiful. I love the style. I couldn’t find single packs online, but I did find a 24-pack set available fore purchase. I never got into the Star Trek TV series, although I had a college roommate that LOVED them. I did love the recent movies, and I’ve tried to start watching the old shows after seeing the movies, but I couldn’t get into them.

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - plush

Gir Plush – Value $12

This is an 8 inch tall Invader Zim Gir plush toy. Again, here’s another show that I never got into as well – but it’s a very nice plush toy.

Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015 - POP

Gattlestar Galactica Cylon Pop – Value $12 (including value for the plastic case, which you can buy separately)

This is Funko POP Television #231, and it arrives in a plastic protector sleeve – which is top of the line for collectors! Well, I can’t lie, I’ve never been into this show either (strike three on me for this box).

Verdict: Theme-wise, it’s not up my alley as you can tell from me saying “I don’t watch this show” in about every description. Luckily, CollectibleGEEK tells you the theme up front, so it takes some of the risk out of it, but you won’t know the items/shows/movies in the box until you open it. The value, around $47, does come over the cost I paid for the box – so it does deliver on that front.

What did you think of the Intergalactic collectibleGEEK Cache?

  1. Dood! Doooooooood!!! How can you call yourself a geek if you’ve never been into Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, OR Firefly??? Next you’ll tell me you thought Star Wars was overrated! 😉

    Seriously though, I can understand why getting into classic Trek would be hard. The show is 50 years old.

    I will always have a soft spot for Firefly since I adore all things Joss Whedon. And this show was very Whedon-y in terms of great characters with depth, great dialogue, and having unexpected things happen.

    Battlestar Galactica, otoh, was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. I say this as a total TV snob as well as a geek. It transcends geekery. It’s smart and demands that its audience use their brains, it’s beautifully acted, it’s perpetually surprising… I can’t even put it all into words without writing an essay. Go. Watch. It. (…To be clear, I am talking about the new one. Not the bit of silliness from the late 70’s. Although that Funko is from the original. Mostly.)

  2. How could you not have seen the three most amazing sci fi shows? Im very dissapointed in you. Just kidding. 🙂 I love everything about this cache. Seriously though you HAVE to watch Firefly. Best show ever.

  3. I just realized in Eric’s picture, that’s not a beard…it’s a dog!

  4. I love Gir from Invader Zim! I already have two of those though, and one I got at Hot Topic for $6.00

  5. So jealz of your Gir! Funniest cartoon! Great review Eric!

  6. Worthless to me : (
    Already had a Cylon. Loved the Firefly show but the worst thing about it was that ultra generic intro song, of which they used on the shirt. Not into western stuff so the shirt plus the print, nope. Not a Trekkie either, so nope to the cards. Never watched Invader Zim.

    Already got rid of Gir to a neighbor and everything is up for swap. Only thing I kept out of this was the Cyberman mini poster : (

  7. I think they did a good job with the theme.

    I bought a grab bag cache cache for $20 plus almost $10 shipping (yikes!) as part of their post 4th of July . 3 out of the 5 are guaranteed to be FUNKO. My older son runs the risk of repeats when it comes to the Avengers, but my younger boy wants to be like big brother and have his own collection. Eric – You are their hero when it comes to FUNKO Pop collections.

    Here’s the details.

    “Post Fourth Of July Sale
    Only 3 days left to purchase the Animation After Dark Cache

    In honor of the Fourth of July we are having an inventory reduction sale. Everything is on sale at CRAZY prices. FUNKO POP!s are just $6.00, Wacky Wobblers $7.50. We also put together some great GRAB BAG CACHES for you, each will contain 5 items 3 of which are guaranteed to be FUNKO products, and just to keep things interesting 17 of these special caches will have Exclusive POP!s that we have never sent out in a cache before.

    GET YOUR GEEK ON

    Oh and I almost forgot the best part, $1.00 from every item sold during the sale will go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project.”

    • I’m definitely running into the same issue with repeats – but I’ve always been able to find a friend to gift it to. We’d love to see their POP collections! I’m sure it’s growing every month!

      • My older son wants to know where you bought the shelving units.
