Pop In A Box Subscription Box Review + 50% Off Coupon – July 2016
Pop In A Box is a Funko POPs subscription that helps you build out your collection 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 6-POP delivery.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This is a no-frills subscription. You’ll be getting the amount of POPs of your choice in a plain brown box – not really photogenic :).
The Subscription Box: Pop In A Box
The Price: $9.99 and up + Shipping (My shipping was about $5)
COUPON: Save 50% off your first 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 box ships very quickly, so they must have distribution in the US now. About 2-3 days after I was charged, the box was at the door.
I went back to a 6-POP box, it still provides good value and it reasonable for the budget.
Here’s a quick run-down of creating your PIAB account:
The first thing you’ll want to do is 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.
Ok – on to the POPs!
My first POP completes my Hateful Eight collection! I was excited to unbox Samuel L Jackson’s character from Hateful Eight – the best character/actor in that movie, in my opinion.
My second POP is my first in the Arrow line, surprisingly. I made it thorough 2 season of Arrow, and I enjoyed both, but I never picked it back up – and the thought of having so many episodes to catch up on is a bit daunting, to be honest.
Liz and I both really enjoyed Big Hero 6 – and I’m starting to fill out the POP collection. Fred was one of the Big Hero 6 POPs that I had been hopefully for, because the costume is just awesome.
Another Big Hero 6 POP to add to the collection. With this addition, I only need 2-3 POPs to complete the set!
This is another show that Liz and I really enjoyed but haven’t continued. I think we got through season 3? It’s been a while. But, it’s one that I’m sure we’ll complete – that first season was great!
And I got the ‘Pencil in the Eye’ variant of Rachel Duncan! I believe I just need Helena (our favorite character) to complete the set!
I did spend about an hour going back through all of my POP likes/dislikes on my account before this shipment. I didn’t receive anything that I disliked, which is good, but I also didn’t receive many of the POPs I’d consider more popular – hopefully that changes as I’m completing certain collections.
Verdict: I’m always excited for POPs – so I love when my POP in a Box delivery makes it here. One thing I will say, their boxes tend to take a beating before they get to my door – there was a baseball sized hole in the corner of my box this month – luckily it wasn’t big enough for anything to fall out of the package. With that said, beware if you’re a collector looking for mint boxes, I often get damaged boxes from the shipment – but I display POPs out of the box, so it doesn’t bother me. If you’re looking to build out your collection and can afford the higher POP count – you’ll get a good discount while filling out your collection.
