Pop In A Box Subscription Box Review + 50% Off Coupon – August 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 12-POP delivery.

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 :).

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 is from this summer’s Star Trek: Beyond. I haven’t made it to any movie yet this summer – and this one is on my must-see list! Civil War was the last movie I’ve seen this year, so I have A LOT of catching up to do.
General Hux is from The Force Awakens. Surprisingly, he survived the movie! I expected him to be force choked to death at any point in the movie.
This is another movie on my ‘catch up’ list. I like the look of this POP – it’s got a wide base, no worries about it falling from its shelf when displayed – that problem is very common for me!
Yet another movie that is a must-see for me, no matter what the opinions are, is Ghostbusters! I’m a huge fan of the original movies, they fall into the category of “I’ll watch it any time I come across it on TV”.
ME-809 is also from The Force Awakens. It’s a protocol droid from Maz Kanata’s castle.
Here is 1 of 2 Harry Potter POPs this month – It’s Ronald in his outfit from the Yule Ball! I think I like this version of his POP better than the original.
I REALLY like this look of Scarecrow’s character from the final installment of the Arkham series. He is one of the characters that I look forward to seeing the different takes on – even in the comics, you can get some great looking Scarecrow characters.
My next POP came damaged. At first, I thought this was some super-rare variant, but no – the glasses arrived broken off of Harry’s face – and not even in the box at all! This was a big disappointment for me.
Leia made an appearance in my box this month, too! This is a great POP to put next to my snow suit Han Solo!
This is just a cool build. I love the look of it – with the tentacles coming off it’s back – so cool.
GAH! I really want to see this movie – and now I really want to rewatch the first two movies as well! Any opinions on Star Trek: Beyond?
The final POP is from The Force Awakens as well. Snap is a Resistance pilot – honestly, I’m a bit surprised he got his own POP! Maybe we’ll see more from his character in a future Star Wars movie.
Verdict: Overall, I’d be paying $100.27 for these 12 POPs on Amazon, shipped for free with Amazon Prime. Those prices can change if you don’t have Prime, or buy from other resellers. A 12-POP box would cost you $104, so you’re coming out pretty even – but you have a higher likelihood of getting a rare variant, POP Ride, or oversized POP with POP in a Box – so there’s is a luck aspect as well. I was a bit disappointed that a POP arrived damaged, though – it’s the first time that I’ve ever had that happen since I’ve started reviewing them in December 2015.
But, you can get extreme value if you get a 12-POP box as your first month with our 50% off link. You’d only be paying $4.33 per POP – which is incredible!
