The latest format promised 4 POPs and 2 Dorbz – being a POP collector, it’s hard to pass these up, but I haven’t had the best of luck with duplicates in the past, so this was another chance.
3 out of 4 POPs ended up being duplicates, which is a total bummer. I’m having some back luck with limited edition POP boxes lately! My first POP is Ronan from Guardians of the Galaxy. While it’s a duplicate, it’s also a sculpt that I really like. Luckily, POPs have been easy for me to gift.
My second POP comes from Game of Thrones. Grey Worm is the leader of the Unsullied and right-hand man to Danaerys.
The next POP and last duplicate is from Sixteen Candles – it’s Long Duck Dong! This is a great POP, but a duplicate – like most, they’re instantly gifted.
The only non-duplicate POP I received was from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which I’m not a follower of. Luckily, we have a big Buffy fan working with us, so it was easily gifted!
On to the Dorbz. I’m not sure if everyone got the same pair of Drobz figures – but they seem like they thought out what to send. My first Dorbz figure was Rocket, which is a duplicate.
And lastly, my first non-duplicate figure that I want to keep, is Rocket’s partner Groot! I’m not a big Dorbz figure fan – but I like some of the sculpts. I like the leafs coming from Groot’s head in particular!
Had to get the group shot!
Verdict: These boxes are tough for me as a POP collector. I own a lot of POPs, so the chance of getting duplicates is pretty high. This would be a great box as a new collector – 4 POPs and 2 Dorbz figures are a great value at $25-30 shipped. I will call this out again because I love that they’re doing it, it helps to get the $10 ShirtPunch credit with all of these blocks – it’s fun to grab something I know I’ll love even when I get a box of mostly duplicates.
