October 2017 Pop In A Box

Hey everyone! It's been a ridiculously long time since my last Pop in a Box post! Who's missed them? I missed receiving my monthly Funko Pop! subscription so much! I received my last one back in January, just before ESA decided to leave me with no income despite being unable to work due to my mental illnesses. Let's not get into that though, because I'll go off on a rant haha! My regular followers will know that I appealed the government's decision (a very long & stressful process >.<) and won my case! I have finally been able to get so many elements of my life back on track, and have also been able to treat myself a little. Because after 7 months with no money at all, I bloody deserved it ^.^ And thus, Pop in a Box has returned to my life and I couldn't be happier! My Pop figure collection was getting neglected! So in today's post, I'm going to show you the figures that arrived at my door early this month. Enjoy!

If you haven't read any of my previous Pop in a Box posts or even heard of this subscription before, let me tell you all about it. Pop in a Box is a service that offers a monthly subscription, containing anything from 1 to 12 (I'm sure it's 12 but don't quote me on that haha) Pop! vinyl figures by Funko. You may be thinking... what if I get figures that I don't like? Well, the service stops this happening with their thumbs up/thumbs down system. Basically, you can use this to select the individual Pop's you'd love to receive and which you never want to get. There's an option to select if you already have a particular Pop! in your collection too to ensure that you're not sent it. You get a discount on the price of each figure with the more you get each month. I get three every time, which costs me £20-something with free shipping. Here's a link to the Pop in a Box website, where you can also purchase one-off figures too. There's an awesome deal, 5 figures for £40!

Since I used my new Ron figure for the thumbnail photograph, I'll start with him :) I love this figure, it's super cute and really eye-catching. This version of Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series (there's a few different Ron figures available) is my favourite. Mostly because it's based on his character in the third movie, The Prisoner of Azkaban, which is my favourite of the Harry Potter movies. I really like the style of Ron's hair on this particular Pop; it has a lot of detail and looks textured. I also love how bright the ginger colour is. He looks fabulous! I also really like Ron's outfit with the messy yet very cosy looking jumper (I'm also happy that it's jumper weather now too!). 

Although I love this figure, if it wasn't for the fact that Ron is holding his rat, Scabbers, I wouldn't have given it a thumbs up. How flippin' adorable is his little rat!? It's just peeping at us! I love Harry Potter but I only wanted to collect my most favourite characters from the series: Luna & Snape I already have, and I would love a figure of Professor Lupin too. Now that I have Ron, I doesn't feel right that I don't have Harry and Hermione. I need to get his best friends to join him! Fellow Harry Potter fans, who's your favourite character(s)? 

The next figure I received in my subscription was...

Yayyy! I got James Hetfield from the heavy metal band, Metallica. I have been a fan of Metallica since my early teens; they are actually one of my all-time favourite bands. James Hetfield is awesome and will forever be one of my celeb crushes *heart eyed emojis needed here*! This figure is fashioned after James Hetfield's look from the 80's when the band was established. I am very happy about this because what's not to love about long hair and a dude who can rock a mustache!? I very much like the stance of James' figure. It represents his stage presence really well! He makes a very cool figure! Another thing that I like about this Pop! is that James' blonde hair is a realistic-looking shade, and also how epic is that mini guitar!? You can get all four members of the band in Pop version. I really like that Funko have released a Rock musicians collection!

OH MY GOSH, I GOT AN ELEVEN POP! Eeeeee! If you know me well, you'll know that I am a big fan of the Netflix sci-fi, horror-esque series Stranger Things, so you can imagine my delight when I opened my subscription box and discovered I had Eleven. There are so many reasons why I love Stranger Things, but the main reason has to be because of little Eleven. She's such a badass character. Don't you agree? (Actress Millie Bobby Brown does such an amazing job!). I wanted an Eleven figure so much that I put a thumbs up to all of the versions available to give myself a better chance of getting her, but to be honest even thought I now have her, I would still happily have all of her other variations. My top one is Eleven with her shaved hair and her beloved waffles in hand! 

As sad as it is to see El in her hospital gown all beaten up, as it makes me picture the scenes in the show, I still really like this figure. I'm certainly impressed with how detailed the bruising on her face looks! So realistic. Aww no though, isn't it sad that she's holding carrot sticks in her hand. She needs her Eggos! My new Eleven in Hospital Gown Pop! is the best out of all three of the characters I was sent. I just love her so much! I cannot wait for Season 2 of Stranger Things to start.. TOMORROW GUYS!

Overall, I am delighted with my October Pop in a Box subscription. All three figures that are got are in almost perfect condition with regards to their paint-job, which is hardly ever the case compared with the figures I've received in the past. They always seem to have some little problem, but not this time! All of my boxes were also in the best condition. I am very much looking forward to the start of November when another subscription boxe(s) will be delivered to my door! 


Thankyou for reading!
