I was really excited when I heard that the box was going to be Civil War themed. Obviously it wasn’t a surprise or anything but I felt like the possibilities were endless with what we might find inside our box of goodies. Now, going into it I thought the chances were high that we’d end up with two Pops, especially in maybe a fighting stance and I nailed it. I mean, what could be more perfect right? I guess Collector Corps was listening because that’s what we ended up with! I really loved the inside of the box too and that everyone is represented in the artwork. The amount of Black Panther is pretty awesome as well. I do find it funny though that it took them this to give us a lanyard for the pins. Fun Fact: I bought a denim jacket to put all my pins and patches on but have yet to actually do it. The shirt design is pretty nice and I’m glad they didn’t do a Team Cap or Team Iron Man thing because I know some of us would be upset if we got the wrong team. The Unmasked Iron Man Dorbz is pretty cute, which isn’t a surprise. I do wish that maybe it was one of the female characters, or even just someone besides Iron Man since we did get a full size Pop of him. Variety is the spice of life after all! I do like the Crossbones patch because who doesn’t love Frank Grillo.
I’ve been looking for this guy for awhile now and finally found him at my local comic shop! I don’t know why he was hard to find but now I have him and I can end my search. Kinda like Steve, eh? Oh I crack myself up! I really love the little details on this guy, like his gun and how they didn’t ignore the backside of the Pop. His little straps go all the way around. Personally I think his arm has better detail this time around as well. I think it’s great too that even without a mouth, they’re still able to give these guys emotions/attitude just by using their eyebrows. I’m super happy with him and hope they do a Civilian Version as well! It’s nice to see that Bucky managed to get some color as well while on the run.

It’s Funko Friday! The theme for this week was Show & Tell but I wanted to change it up, again. The only new Pops I have are Agent Carter and Deadpool and I already did posts on them. Like most Pop collectors, I have them all over the place. I have them in my room (I live at home), in the living room, at work. I bet if I looked I could find one in my car. I don’t have never ending space though, and that was obvious on my desk at work. I had them all in a nice little line but was pretty much out of room for them. I have other goodies like framed art that take up space as well. I finally decided to do something about it and started poking around the internet to see what I could find. Basically, I knew I wanted something that had levels, that’s the only way I could “add” to the space I have. I had to go vertical! The main consensus was to use a spice rack. I’m picky though and wanted to make sure I bought one with the right amount of space for them to stand on. Some of them come with stands which means I needed something where the steps had some width. After doing tons of searching, I landed on the 3-Tier Acrylic Cabinet Organizer from The Container Store. One reason I picked this one over others was this review:
This item is a great riser for displaying Funko Pops on a bookshelf!
Yes, that is a legit review that was left! I couldn’t believe it. I actually laughed a little bit over it. Glad to see other collectors are out there helping their fellow Pop Fiends out. It was only $14.99 plus if you signed up for their email you got a 15% off coupon. Plus The Container Store is part of Ebates which means I earned some cash back! Shipping was a little high but if you have a store nearby, you can do a pick up option. And honestly, I’m sure you could find something similar at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, or some other random store. Enough blabbering, onto the photo!
There you go! It does the job perfectly! It’s a little longer than I was expecting but I’m horrible with picturing stuff like that, even with measurements. I’m still playing around with placement. I already moved the Game Stop Widow down a step, in order to see the shield. I might end up using all the levels, in order to space everyone out nicely that way everyone is 100% visible.
How do you store your pops? In box? On a shelf? In a display cabinet? Everywhere? Let me know in the comments!
I know this isn’t the theme for the week but my box arrived and I figured what the hell. I’ve really been looking forward to this box since it was announced. I love Deadpool and couldn’t wait to see what goodies were included! As always, the box came with a patch and pin.
I really need to start putting these things on the jacket I bought. Oops. They aren’t anything super special but I do like them. If you were hoping for a shirt, you’re in luck! This time around there’s a super cute Deadpool Funko shirt! I love these shirts and glad we scored one for free. I always think about picking one up but never do. Of course there’s the free comic too. After seeing the nice mix of items in the GOTG box, I was hoping for more of the same this time around. While we didn’t get one of the mugs, we did get three pretty awesome items! There’s the cute little plush, plus a Dorbz, and a brand new Funko Pop!
I love that he’s leaping! I will say be careful with him though. He’s not attached to the base. It just slides into a little hole that’s on his back. It’s not a big deal, but just don’t freak out if you drop him and he falls off. It’s not broken! My nephew dropped him and was worried he broke him but have no fear, TeeTee is here. I love that Deadpool is holding a little horse. Granted, I think after seeing the movie I wish it was a unicorn. In the final photo you can see all the goodies together.
I was really pleased with the box! I know some people are “eh” on the shirts but I really like this one and know it’s one I’ll wear out. I like that we got a Pop that’s different and not just a repaint. I might end up giving the Mopeez to my nephew but we’ll see. What do you guys think? And if you didn’t hear, the next box is all about “Captain America: Civil War!”
I’m not normally a sucker for variant versions of Funko Pops unless something is really different. A few examples would be the Black Widow where she’s holding the shield, or the faded Vision. But when I saw the POP Marvel: Agent Carter – Sepia Tone Amazon Exclusive I knew I had to have her! In my opinion, I think this looks even better than the original.
You can find her on Amazon for $12.99 with a shipping date of February 15th! Do you think you’ll be adding her to your collection? Once I have her expect a review post!
