The Collector’s Case POPPED! Box Review – March 2017
Every once in a while, The Collector’s Case releases a POPPED! Limited Edition box. There were two options to choose from – the Mint box and the Non-Mint box. I’ll be reviewing both in this review!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
These are sold out at the moment.
The Subscription Box: The Collector’s Case POPPED! Box
The Cost: Non-Mint – $15 + $8 S/H, Mint – $30 + $8 S/H
The Products: Exclusive t-shirts+ 4 POPs
Ships To : US and Canada
I purchased one of each box to see what the differences were – we’ll start with the Mint box.
Mint POPPED! Box
The Mint box is the more expensive of the two, but offer some advantages:
- 2 Guaranteed Themed POPs of your choice
- 2 Random POPs
- Official Funko Shirt
I chose Marvel as my theme.
The shirt is the same in each crate – it’s a Funko brand shirt, and I love it! As a collector, it’s fun to have a shirt to represent it!
My first POP is from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, it’s poor Cameron.
It’s a simple POP design, but I like that he’s wearing his Red Wings jersey!
I receive Sabretooth as 1 of my 2 theme selections. Sabretooth is the ultimate Wolverine villain, and having grown up on Logan – Sabretooth became a favorite character.
Naturally, I have this collection completed! Which leaves me with this question, why isn’t there a 6 inch Juggernaut POP yet!?
My second themed POP was Gwenpool! A new addition to my collection!
This is an absolutely awesome POP!
I’ve recently re-watched two of my favorite animated movies – Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie and Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie – so this one is timed just right.
It definitely had me shouting ‘DUCK DODGERS in the 24 1/2 CENTURY”!
The wraps up the Mint box – I received two Marvel themed POPs (Gwenpool and Sabretooth) with two mystery POPs (Cameron and Duck Dodgers).
The Non-Mint option sent you POPs with slightly damaged boxes – without the choice of a theme, so these are completely random. This is a great option if you’re building a collection to display out of the box.
You’ll get the same Funko shirt in your box.
My first POP is from Adventure Time – it’s Finn and Jake’s greatest villain – The Lich.
He’s even creepy in POP form! I MUST get my hands on that Jake Car Funko Ride!
I received King Bob from the Minions movie.
Minions really lend themselves well to the POP sculpt!
I received one POP from a comic line, and it was DC – It’s Reverse Flash.
I’d love to see a Legion of Collectors exclusive that had The Flash in motion, as a POP.
The final POP of all of the POPs was Cady from Mean Girls.
I passed this one along to Liz for her room!
Verdict: $23 ($15 + $8) is a great value for 4 POPs with slightly damaged boxes. The boxes themselves were just that, slightly damaged, some to the point where I couldn’t pick out the damage. If you’re building your collection – the Non-Mint might be worth it even if you only get 2 POPs you like. The Mint box, at $38 ($30 + $15) doesn’t end up being as good of a value. Even in selecting a theme, the theme is so broad that you still have a good chance of duplicates – and $40 is about the price you’ll pay for 4 POPs, so it’s riskier. I will say – add in the value of the shirt, and both options definitely become more valuable (and I love the shirt), but unless the shirt is different for the next selection, you may not need a second.
Did you pick up a POPPED! box? What did you think?
