Killer Pumpkin Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt wasn’t specific to any fandom – but it was very Halloween themed. Your jack-o-lantern comes wielding two axes.

Dementor POP – Value $8 on Amazon

While I already own this POP – It still makes sense to own a gaggle of dementors!

This is one of my favorite POP sculpts from the past year – it really captures the dementor vibe. It’s also my favorite in the Harry Potter line – although my mind could be changed if I get a 6″ Hagrid.

BONUS POP!!!!

Collector’s Case randomly inserts a bonus POP each month – this is my first month getting one, I couldn’t have been more excited. It’s the Inception of subscription boxes – a mystery box within a mystery box. Yes, please.

K-2SO POP – Value $10 on Amazon

Not only is it a Star Wars POP, but it’s a brand new POP from Rogue One! I’m so excited for Rogue One, and it’s only about a month and a half away!

So many Rogue One POPs to collect! All Star Wars POPs come with a Star Wars branded stand, but, you can remove the POP from the stand with you like them to be freestanding.

Five Nights At Freddy’s Funko Plush – Value $20 on Amazon

The third, and final, Funko item this month is a plush from Five Nights at Freddy’s. You receive 1 of a possible 5 plushes of the animatronics-gone-bad. I got Chica.

This one was unlike other Funko plushes that I’ve received – I even tripled checked that is was Funko – I’m used to the Mopeez and Fabrikations, but this is something new and different. Much more along the lines of your standard plush toy.

Has anyone played this card game? It seems like it could be fun this time of year.

Overkill: Halloween Slasher Game – Value $10

There’s a second card game, too – again, perfect for Halloween!

Here’s a little bit about the games from Cool Stuff Inc:

Overkill is a card game where you compete to come up with the most ridiculous or creative horror movie-themed kill. Players take on the roles of various monsters from horror movie lore, and compete for the most prized victims – when the sun rises, the player with the most total point’s worth of victims wins!

Scar & Rip Tattoos – Value $2-3 each?

Get your costume ready with some injury tattoos! There are 31 total tattoos between the two sets:

What are you going dressed up as this year? Are you using fake scars like these?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone 7-Card Packs – Value $1 each

The final item of the month is from Harry Potter.

the-collectors-case-october-2016-0028

Each 7-card pack lets you relive certain moments of the movie, and includes some extra information on movie characters.

Verdict: Getting a bonus POP will always win me over for the month! The Funko items were definitely my favorite items this month – everything else was only ok for me. I’m not sure that I’m the target audience for the box, but this could be a great box for collectors of card and card games!
