This is a no-frills subscription. You’ll be getting the amount of POPs of your choice in a plain brown box.

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 ‘Add to my Collection’ 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!

Deathstroke

I received two POPs from the CW-world of Arrow.

My first was Deathstroke – and I was absolutely excited to finally get this POP. Deathstroke is one of the cooler DC villains in my opinion.

The Arrow

Who better to receive in the same box than Deathstroke’s adversary – Arrow!

Season 2 was the last season that I watched of this show – and I did really like the Deathstroke storyline – but Liz and I kind of got out of it when The Flash started and you needed to follow two shows. Maybe one day I’ll start it back up.

Gremlin

This one is just a blast from the past. I remember watching both Gremlins 1 and 2 so many times when I was younger!

The possibilities for different Gremlin POPs seems endless – wasn’t there a punk rock Gremlin?

Odin

This was a POP that I have always had my eye on, but never bought. I like the sculpt and Odin is just a classic character.

I have my fingers crossed for Heimdall in the near future!

Ned Stark

Ah, Ned Stark. What a guy. There’s a variant of this POP the demonstrates what happens to him in the storyline – I’m doing my best to not spoil the show/book to anyone!

I am SO far behind on my Game of Thrones POP collection. It’s at the point where it seems so daunting because there are so many.

Cersei Lannister

I also received a second Game of Thrones POP – this time it’s Ned’s arch-nemesis, or at least arch-nemesis family – Cercei Lannister.

Anytime I think of Cersei now, all I can think of is:

Verdict: POP in a Box’s subscription can be a great way to build out, or even start, your POP collection. You’ll get much better value if you’re doing a larger number of POPs each month – you can get the cost per POP down to $7.92 with a 12 POP subscription – which is good value for the newer POPs that can go from $10-15 on Amazon. You’ll also have a better chance of getting an exclusive POP or POP Ride since they randomly add these to subscriptions.

  1. I would caution anybody who subscribes to this box. I canceled my subscription after receiving a Pop I did not want and did not get a return email about trying to return it. I then kept on receiving Pops, of which I DO NOT WANT. After an additional complaint this month, I am able to return the Pops I received in January, but not the previous ones, all of which are fandoms that I do not follow.

    If you do not CONTINUOUSLY look to update your preferences – they can send you pops you didn’t even want! They offer new Pops, and will send them to you as long as you haven’t given them the thumbs down.

    I would never recommend somebody subscribe to this box.
