I’m absolutely gutted my popinabox subscrption hasn’t arrived yet, it’s not that it’s late, it hasn’t even been a week but I’m just very impatient and looking forward to the suprise. In preparation I’ve been clearing out a couple of my Funko Pop Vinyl, there are a few that look completely out of place in our collection and it’s time I found them a new home.
I knew I’d accumulated quite a few geeky goodies that I would never use but I wasn’t quite aware of just how much it had added up. That been said I’ve started adding my Funko Pop Vinyls that need a home as well as other geeky items to my store. If your interested just press the buy button. All prices include signed for postage and are available to UK residents.
Our collection of pops have changed so much I think its time for an update, with new buys, delivery’s from pop in a box its hard to keep track of all of them, some have gone while our favourite collections have only expanded.
There are some sets I favour overall and personally for me my Supernatural pop vinyls are my favourite with my Once Upon A Time coming in a close second.
There’s nothing quite like getting a long searched for pop either out in the wild or buying from a fellow collector. Most our new arrivals are mystery pops but there are a few that I ordered from the Pop in a box shop which have arrived lately.
If your anything like me then waiting for certain pops to possibly be put in your monthly subscription isn’t an option so I like to pre-order the ones I want the most from the pop in a box store. There are plently places to pre-order pops from but pop in a box is my go to as you know where you are in the queue to recieve one, its usually cheaper and payment isn’t taken until they have stock.
I put in two pre-orders last year (December) for Once Upon a time Captain Hook and Regina these were a small part of ever growing pre-orders list but I knew I wanted them. When payment was taken it wasn’t long until they arrived as I had good queue numbers, I recieved Hook early January and Regina a couple of weeks later. They arrived in great condition, bubble wrapped and in a sturdy box. I was really pleased as I hate when pops arrive damaged.
As you can see perfect packaging, I then ordered Supernatural Bobby Singer because no collection would be complete without him, it arrived just in time for Mothers day again perfectly packed and no damage.
Just make sure to mark off the pops once you’ve recieved them otherwise you may end up with a second one in your pop in a box subscription. Any questions feel free to leave me a message and I’ll get back to you.
I’m a little late writing this up considering we had it the same time as our Marvel Collector Corps Ant-man box but if you have kids then you know weekends are super hectic, sometimes as busy as the week.
Anyway getting back to the Infinity Crate June box which the theme of the month was Gather. Now as soon as I heard this I was thinking Pokemon etc as you gather and collect objects. I can’t say I was super happy about the theme because I didn’t think there would be anything in it I would like but it was already paid for.
As usual hubby and son unboxing in which he insists on one of the items 🙂
And below is a list of the contents:
Funko Pop Avengers Age of Ultron : Ultron
4 Pin Badges
Hulk vs Thanos t-shirt
Yoshi mini soft toy
Not super impressed which is a pity as I enjoyed last month’s theme and was hoping to carry on for next months theme which is Time & Space. It’s a shame that it can’t be more personalised as we may have got a Borderlands Claptrap Pop which we haven’t got yet. White t-shirts also drive me crazy most prefer black but even grey would be better than white. Loved the Minecraft badge and the one I think is supernatural but still figuring out what to do with them. I don’t think we’ll bother next month but we’ll see.
I am am super excited this morning, even though I was woke at ungodly hours (well for a saturday atleast) it was for a very good reason. Epic mail call of our second box from Marvel Collector Corps this time Marvel Collector Corps Ant-man aswell as our infinity crate.
Originally I wasn’t that excited about this box as I wasn’t an Ant-man fan and I was really hoping we weren’t going to get stung by custom charges especially since we had no idea what was in the box and if it would be worth it. But this time around no shipping issues, no customs charges and it was delivered very quickly…it was worth the wait.
As usual we have my awesome hubby unboxing and my hansome little boy making a guest appearance. Take a look at what we recieved in our box:
I loved this box,the pin and badge are great little collectables. I hope they keep these coming in each box. For those who just want the contents,here’s what we had:
Funko Exclusive unmasked Ant-man with mini little bobble head Ant-man
2 Ant-man mystery minis
Ant-man comic #5 varient cover
Ant-man Pin Badge
A great box and I’m looking foward to the announcement next month of what the theme for August’s box will be. Any guesses?
Another first here on MsRetro,we signed up to My Geek Box June for the first time, we’d thought about trying it a few times but for us hearing that they were having a European Exclusive Pop Vinyl in the box was it’s selling point. We not only ordered one but two boxes because once again we argued over the t-shirt and I wanted my own.
Mine hasn’t arrived yet sadly so I’m hoping for Monday but the hubbie had his delivered today and we were dying to know what goodies it had inside.
Unfortunately we knew what the Pop was before we had the box as the whispers went to full blown yells in our Pop communities when a very popular website put the Pop up for sale with the sticker on the box.
Take a look at the unboxing with our excited shouty mini humans:
For those skipping the video or didn’t quite catch everything here is the list of the contents:
Funko Pop Vinyl Unmasked Cyclops (European Exclusive)
Mutant Academy t-shirt
Star Wars Heros Mouse Mat
Hero Pin Badges
Spiderman Heros and Villans Cards
As a first box it was quite good, I wish the pop had been better and a true exclusive but I don’t hate it. Love the t-shirt design but hate white clothes. I love the pin badges but as I’m no longer in my teenage years I’m wondering where to put them… I will think of something. The cards are great for my girls but I’ll have to work out how to use them and show them.
Overall I’m not overly excited to keep my subscription with them as there are better boxes out there and the exclusive Pop was a let down which doesn’t give me much to go on with their future boxes. We’ll have to see what happens.
Seems I’ve had so many new pops since our last pop in a box came and now it’s here again. This monthly box always gets me excited for what pop we will recieve, if it will be an exclusive or something I’ve been looking for,I love the suprise.
I’m hoping this month for something rare or different to the pops in our local stores so fingers crossed for a great sub this month. I spent hours (not jokeing) thumbs up and thumbs downing so many pops in the hope of just pops we want.
Here is the husband unboxing our box and yes I stole the popping candy…yummy cherry.
So an you can see above we recieved original Iron Man which is okay pretty common available in Tesco but he has a really good paint job unlike the Tesco ones and Hawkeye from Marvels Avengers Age of Ultron which is cool now we just have Hulk to go but again he’s in the local shops.
Still happy as they are ones I would have bought at some point but I want something new and exciting so I’m hoping next month we get a WOW pop.
If you’ve been keeping up with my geekaverse posts then you know my husband suprised me with a Shabby Geek box a couple of weeks back and has been hinting at every opportunity for me to repay the favour. Of course i rapidly ordered him once my bank balance allowed me to do so but kept it underwraps so I could suprise him.
Finally it arrived today in perfect time for an early fathers day present/ awesome husband gift. Keep in mind when ordering that they estimate 2 weeks at the moment as they are super busy with very good reason. Really good customer service and they take their time getting the content just right.
Here is his unboxing video, he may seems a bit crazy but that’s because he’s insanely happy to have something fun to open over a bill and really wasn’t expecting it. Haha my plan worked.
To sum up what my husband recieved:
Funko Pop : Breaking Bad Gus (Dead)
Minecraft Cushion Cover
Breaking Bad Gym Bag
Plants vs Zombies Notebook
Plants vs Zombies Plush Zombie
Fast and The Furious Mouse Mat
Husband is very happy and hopefully he’ll buy me another very soon. Thank you again Shabby Geek for an amazing box.
We went on a POP Vinyl Hunt today it was a really fun time finding all the new items that were on offer.
It all started from a rumour that Sainsburys is going to be stocking Funko POP! as part of their Fathers Day Promotion. Some stores had already rolled them out and others had no clue about it so we had to investigate naturally.
To our disappointment there was no sign of anything in our local Sainsburys store and we had heard some stores have been lucky to have a few Metallic Chase Jokers in. After some digging and a conversation with Sainsuburys Twitter Team we discovered that even though they have the stock they’ve been told not to sell until it’s closer to fathers day.
So disappointed and empty handed we thought that’s where the day would end and went to get some new shelving but still needed a POP! Fix. This took us to Smyth’s Toy Store and thank God it did.
We have been to this particular shop a good few times checking in every now and then to see if they have any hidden gems but today was an extra special surprise. They must have just had a delivery in and now had a full section of Inside Out figures from the new film and so the promo stand was the fullest we had seen it.
We thought this was amazing in its self lots of pops to choose from is always a good thing but as we walked around the store we just found more and more hidden in different sections they had clearly run out of space on the stand and decided to spread them out but this was awesome and it became a little bit of a treasure hunt.
Going from section to section seeing if there was any pops hiding on the shelves, we found WWE, DC, Frozen, and to our delight Cinderella.
Cinderella came home with us as our girls love the new film, our collection is growing so fast . Here they are now proudly on their “Out of Reach” shelf 😀
My husband has been teasing me for the last week that he has ordered me a suprise and today it finally arrived. I was so excited as I had no clue what it was going to be in any shape or form.
It was quite a big box so that immediately threw me as I thought he’d just ordered me a Pop Vinyl so at this point I was even more intrigued.
I opened the box took out the brown paper wrapping and sat on top of bubble wrap was Nerds and a tootsie roll lollipop. The Nerds took me back to childhood as I loved buying these from the shop but anyway under the wrapping was an amazing amount of goodies really well wrapped.
To start off I unwrapped a Pop and it was Cowley from Supernatural now this starts off my Supernatutal collection and I love it. Everything that followed was equally as awesome just take a look at the video.
Pop Vinyl Supernatural : Cowley
Harley Quinn Pillowcase set
Harley Quinn Tote Bag
Supernatural Castiel Mug
Harley Quinn Note Book
Harley Quinn Magnetic Interchangeable Vinyl
I’m blown away with the contents of this Shabby Geek Express box and love the way the contents have been put together with the themes asked for.
After been dissapointed by other companies this is a breath of fresh air and I wouldn’t mind getting another box. Best husband ever for this present.
I’m slowly thinking that Pop Vinyls are becoming an obsession in our house. Not an entirely unhealthy one but an expensive one to say the least. Saying that I don’t think it will stop anytime soon as its something us and the kids love (especially us!). Our youngest daughter has now asked for Elsa from Frozen for her Birthday which will start yet another collection.
I couldn’t wait for our May Pop In A Box to arrive and as usual we couldn’t stop ourselves from buying a couple before hand which is dangerous territory when the Pop Vinyls you get are a mystery until you open the box. It’s our second box from Pop In A Box and once again we weren’t dissapointed. If you are looiing for a Pop subscription then I couldn’t reccomend them anymore highly. You will not be dissapointed beleive me.
So this month we recieved :
Guardians of the Galaxy : Groot
We also ordered an extra Pop this month, we were very very lucky to get Master Chief from Halo 4, this was sourced by Ed from Pop In A Box and it really is awesome so we’ve proudly added him to our ever growing collection.
