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!).
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 $20+ order! 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 are my contents! I have found that the boxes are usually in great condition but we take them out because our kids play with them.
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! Frodo Baggins Vinyl Figure ($4.99) A hobbit of the Shire during the Third Age is included in our box this month!
The back of the box features other POPs from this series aside from Frodo Baggins. If you wish to have one of those, remember to give them a thumbs up!
Standing with all his might is the ring bearer, with his usual hobbit garb. Here, though he is in his bare feet (love the hair!), he’s sporting on his mithril coat and elven cloak.
Look at the details on his disheveled hair! It’s actually impressive!
He’s even holding a sword, ready for his quest!
And the most important detail of all… he’s wearing the iconic ring as a necklace pendant!
Funko Pop! Labyrinth Sarah & Worm Vinyl Figure ($9.73) Our next POP comes from Labyrinth, a classic adventure-musical-fantasy film.
The back of the box features other characters you can get from this film aside from Sarah and the Worm: Jareth (2 forms), A 6″ Ludo and of course, Hoggle! I didn’t know these came back (they’ve been sold out!). JARETH NEXT PLEASE!
Here they are, the heroine Sarah together with the hospitable William the worm!
In this figure, Sarah is wearing a white blouse, a patterned waistcoat, and a pair of blue jeans. It’s a practical outfit suitable for her journey to the Labyrinth.
She’s also sporting a hairclip. So cute!
Even the back of the figure is greatly detailed.
From this angle, you will see the ribbon behind her waistcoat, and she’s wearing a bracelet too.
Her face has a really cute blush too. That’s why even the Goblin King became smitten with her.
Meanwhile, here’s the small character who offers Sarah guidance when she is at the point of giving up on her quest to save her brother.
The worm has a cockney accent, and wears a bright red scarf.
Sarah encounters the worm towards the start of her journey through the Labyrinth. It may be small but the details were well done, it’s just amazing.
Funko Pop! Buddy Elf Vinyl Figure ($8.38) To complete our set of mythical POPs, here’s Buddy Elf from the 2003 Christmas movie Elf!
Other available figures from the movie include Jovie, Papa Elf, and Narwhal.
Buddy Elf holding a bottle of maple syrup is really cute!
Look at that awesome elven costume. He looks adorable wearing a green elf shirt with a white collar, as well a pair of yellow pants, a black belt, and and black elf shoes. He’s even accessorized with a pointed green hat!
His curly hair looks so cute as well!
For those who are not familiar, here’s a brief story about Buddy:
Buddy was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, he met Walter Hobbs, a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves that he’s Buddy’s father, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
I guess Buddy is just looking for some spaghetti to put his maple syrup on! Anyone?
The POPs we received this month are all looking F-U-N! Everything came in pristine condition so we really couldn’t ask for more. Pop In A Box is such a perfect subscription for Funko collectors. They have a system that makes sure that you won’t get a duplicate, just don’t forget to update your tracker! They have all sorts of Pops and all the new releases. Next up – Garbage Pail Kids?!?! (Love to hate em!)
