Pop In A Box is a monthly Funko POP! vinyl figure subscription. Every month you will receive the number of POP! figures you order (starting at $9.99 per POP!). 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.
You can block Pops from being sent, rate pops in their tracker, and if you track your collection with their tracker and subscribe you will not receive any dupes. They do give away figures randomly to subscribers.
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). Everything that you Thumbs Down will be blocked, and you can pull them back out if your tastes/fandoms change. Thumbs Up will place the Pops on your Wish List.
DEAL: Save 20% on your first month’s plan! No coupon required, just use this link to subscribe.
I do 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.
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.
There’s not a lot of fanfare with this box – here’s my contents! I have found that the boxes are usually in great condition but we take them out because our kids play with them. That was unfortunately not the case with this month.
Note – when you receive your Pops from PIAB they will not be added to your collection. They don’t track what you get, so when you get them, add them to your tracker so you don’t receive them again (and don’t forget to add all the other Pops you get to your tracker too).
Funko Pop! Superbad Seth Vinyl Figure ($9.97) My husband loved this one – he’s such a fan. It’s on his desk. The box is definitely no good if you’re a box collector!
Funko POP! True Blood Pam Swynford De Beaufort Vinyl Figure ($6.78) Box is crushed.
This is a terrible mold and terrible paint job. I love True Blood but getting rid of this one.
Funko POP! Talladega Nights Ricky Bobby Vinyl Figure ($9.29) Box also smashed.
Ricky Bobby is always a hit.
Despite my dislike of the Pam Pop, it was on my thumbs up list (I just went and made sure the rest of those are thumbsed down!), as were the other two. This box was a hit just for the Superbad and Talladega Pops, but a miss for the crushed boxes.
As you can see, it took about 4 months for me to get this review up. I had an account issue due to the Pop In A Box website migration (which affected literally one person – me!). It’s been resolved now, and during that time I was able to speak to the founder of Pop In A Box – who is working to have improved protection of 3+ Pop orders. We’ll update soon with a new review to see what happens!
