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 :).

I wanted to point out that this month’s shipment was packaged MUCH better and more secure than ever before. The POPs were all bubble wrapped and the box’s empty space was filled with this sealed air packaging. All of my POP boxes arrived in pristine condition!

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.

individual POP

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.

PIAB collection

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!

Ghostbusters Kevin

My first POP was from the new Ghostbusters movie – it’s Chris Hemsworth’s character, Kevin. I’m a fan of POPs with glasses – I think they just add a little more to the POP and you can really, immediately, tell which character it is.

Princess Leia

This was my favorite POP of the month – it’s Princess Leia from The Force Awakens! I love the design and build of this figure. It’s really solid feeling, too.

McLovin

“Hey, It’s You! McMuffin!” – that’s what I always think of when I here McLovin. This is one of those movies I end up watching if I stumble across. I’m not sure why, but it’s engrained that I must watch it.

Zoe Washburne

Finally, another Firefly POP! Zoe is the second in my collection – she joins Malcolm. How are there not so many more Firefly POPs!? Unfortunately, she also has a paint error directly on her face 🙁

Hiro Hamada

Hiro is the main character in Big Hero 6. Liz and I like animated movies – and this was one that we really enjoyed.

Unmasked Vader

Ok, maybe it’s a tie for the best POP this month, because how great is this one? I love the all around look and sculpt of this POP, I’ll have to find some room for display!

Verdict: This was a great month of POPs for me. I cast a decently wide net of which POPs I thumbs up – so this was a really good collection. This is a great way to keep track of your collection – and a great way to start your collection with our 50% off of your first month (any POP count) link!

My only question – where is the POP advent calendar?!

What do you think of POP in a Box? Do you subscribe?

  1. Pop in a box is horrible. After not getting anything for over a month, and contacting them, they went on about not discussing the details because of the data protection act they have to follow and the mailing address was in my 14 year old sons name. So I went and changed it to mine and when I did that they said oh well now we need your credit card information to verify your identity. I’m to give a faceless voiceless entity my card information? I went to a review site and left a complaint. What do you know? They publicly posted details of my account and information that I had fought with them for two days to get. So much for their law. When I messaged them with a screen shot. Their reply was well we follow a different process for trust pilot. So a private message won’t get you help, but write a scathing review and they will put it out for all the world to see. No one has offered any options, they closest thing to a apology is “well I’m sorry you feel that way”. Stay away from the them. Go to Walmart or Amazon and buy them. This company is nothing more than a unethical joke. I found them through this site.

  2. We subscribe and only do 1 pop/month. We had a pretty bad experience in September – our box was super late and they refused to even acknowledge it. (Definitely wasn’t a postal service problem because we received several packages in the time we were waiting) It’s the first time in 4 months that we had any issues. Their customer service was pretty disappointing- we’re thinking about cancelling but will give it another month to see what happens.

  3. POP advent calendar? Eric, you are a genius! I would buy that in a heartbeat!

  4. I thought that mark on Zoe’s face was suppose to be a scar ;-D
