Pop In A Box Subscription Box Review – December 2015

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

Pop In A Box Subscription Box Review December 2015 - box

Pop In A Box is a UK subscription box that sends you Funko POPs every month! They’ve started to ship to the US earlier this year, and I finally caved and gave it a shot! You can sign up to receive 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, or 12 POPs each month. This is a review of a single POP delivery.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Subscription Box: Pop In A Box

The Price: $9.99 + Shipping (My shipping was about $5)

COUPON: Save 5% off your fist shipment, no coupon required, just use this link

The Products: Pop In A Box allows you to grow your POP! collection every month with a guaranteed mystery Funko POP! Vinyl that’s not in your collection.

Ships to: US, UK, and Canada

This is a no-frills box for sure. There is no card, not box design, nothing. Just the POPs that you request. I was wary of subscribing since it’s a UK subscription and I thought the shipping would be high and I’d have to receive my package through DHL. Luckily, this came to us via USPS! I was excited that was the case.

Once you create your account, you’ll want to set up your collection. This is an important step to ensure that you don’t receive a duplicate POP or a POP that you may not care about.

You can cycle through POPs and selection options for each one. Mark ‘I HAVE THIS’ for POPs you have and avoid duplicates. Give POPs a thumbs down to let PIAB know that you don’t want it, and mark it as thumbs up to let them know that you’re really interested in that specific POP.

There are a TON of POPs to go through. I haven’t even gone through all of them, but in the end, you’ll have built your own collection! This will help you keep track of what you have, and it will help PIAB know what to send.

Honey Lemon POP – Value $9.14 on Amazon

I received Honey Lemon with my first shipment! This is perfect to start building Big Hero 6, and goes along with my big Baymax POP!

Here’s a close up of the POP out of the box. These POPs with a small bottom also come with a clear base, and unfortunately, I’ve accidentally thrown some away in the past and can’t find replacements! Seriously, Funko, sell replacement stands!

Verdict: I was excited to find out what I got in my first shipment from Pop In A Box! That excitement made up for the lack of an unboxing experience, for me. This definitely feels like a subscription where you might win some and you might lose some on value. If you’re getting an older POP, they’re probably cheap on Amazon, but if you get a rarity or a newer POP, you could win on value. For that reason, I’m definitely going to try this subscription out for a couple more months.

What did you think of Pop In A Box? Have you set up your collection?
