Pop in a Box May 2016 unboxing

Pop In A Box is a monthly Funko POP! vinyl figure subscription. Every month you will receive the number of POP! figures you order. SURPRISE! In all seriousness they have a totally awesome and exhaustive Pop tracker that you should sign in to use if you have any sort of Pop collection (we have quite a few). Shipping is always a flat $4.99 but you can get as many as 12 POP!s a month, which is ludicrous.  You can block Pops from being sent, rate pops in their tracker, and if you track your collection with their tracker you will not receive any dupes. They do give away figures randomly to subscribers. This subscription has been operating a while now – but exclusively in the UK. They’re now available in the US – hooray!

When you sign up you can add POP!s to your collection, thumbs up and down (never get a thumbs down, more likely to get a thumbs up) (thumbs up Wampa!). Everything that you Thumbs Down will be in the Pop Grave, and you can pull them back out if your tastes/fandoms change. Thumbs Up will place the Pops on your Wish List.

And block entire categories from being shipped! Find this screen in “Customise Plan.”

I find it fun and easy to do the thumbs up & down a couple times a week, and I suggest filling out your collection and blocking any POP!s you hate and marking any POP!s you really want before actually subscribing. FYI – the easiest way to thumbs up/down all at once is go to Manage Collection and check out the individual collections so you can do it all from one screen. Once you’re signed up you’ll get a new pops email whenever they add new pops to the shop – and then you’ll know it’s time to do thumbs up/down.

Pop in a Box May 2016 review

There’s not a lot of fanfare with this box – here’s my contents! I have found that the boxes are always in great condition but we take them out because our kids play with them. We are putting up special shelves for our collection after we paint

The POP!s were from the Harry Potter and Games (Fallout) collection. I had these as a Yes, Please in my category list, and both as a thumbs up in my wishlist!

We got Hermione Granger ($7.79) and Lone Wanderer ($8.98)! However, for $23.98 (which includes the shipping), this was a teeny disappointing, and $7.21 short on value. This just means I need to up my monthly pop number, right?!


We don’t play Fallout, but my son was wild about this one. He is extremely proud of his Funko collection! This was on my thumbs up list because I thought it would add some variety to his collection, which is extremely Star Wars heavy at the moment.

I should also note that Pop in a Box does not update your tracker with the Pops you receive. I wish they would actually track what they send you, but they don’t. When you get your box, you’ll need to add the Pops to your collection manually.

Whoops! I forgot to to add this one to my collection – I received it in another subscription. My daughter & I agreed that Aunt Jenny would be the lucky recipient, to match her Dumbledore.

We love this Pop! Pop in a Box May 2016 (4)

Even her little pointed hood is present.

You will find that not all the POP!s you receive will be as cheap as on Amazon, so if you want something specific, you may do better checking out the Funko availability on Amazon. It’s definitely a fun way to collect! I should note that it’s easy to cancel and you can make out great if you get the big 12 Pop! box because the per-POP price goes down quite a bit. That may be a better idea (indulge big then skip a few months) than going for the 2 Pop box!
