Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache Review – June 2015
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 Subscription Box: Collectible Geek Collector’s Cache
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.”
Ships to: US and International (additional shipping costs)
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!
This box they included an info card detailing the items in both the regular cache and the “I Want It All Exclusives” upgraded subscription.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
