Last year, the Vinylpalooza box also promised 4 vinyl figures as well, but this year they guaranteed only POPs. That, of course, made me bite because I love collecting POPs!
I knew I would have a high probability of duplicates, but I still took the gamble. I receive two duplicates, and this is one of them. Freddy has, and will always be, one of my favorite horror icons, and while this is a duplicate, I also have more than a couple people in mind to gift it too – so all is not lost.
Here’s Freddy out of the box.
This is the third or fourth time I’ve received this Yondu POP in a geek box in the past year! This is obviously a duplicate, but again, and easy one to gift or giveaway!
Here’s Yondu out of the box. I can’t wait for Guardians of the Galaxy 2!
Finally – a new POP! This one if from Big Trouble in Little China. I’m not a big follower of the movie, but this is a cool POP on its own!
Here’s a closer look!
Another new addition to my collection, and from a line that I had planned on collecting! It’s been a while since I’ve watched The Breakfast Club, but I’ve seen it many many time and it’s such a classic. This POP had me like…
Here’s a close up of the POP detail.
Verdict: This year’s Vinylpalooza was definitely much better than last year. Last year felt like they were getting rid of old inventory, but this year was something different altogether. I’m pretty sure at least 2 of the 4 were definitely not in any Block this year, so that’s awesome. All in all, at about $38 shipped to the US, you’re getting one POP free – and if you’re new to collecting them, there’s real value there.
