Infinity Crate April 2016 – Allegiance

There’s no shortage of geeky boxes out there but a lot these days can be hit and miss. I’m still looking for one that doesn’t disappoint or even a box that can give me a few great boxes in a row… if not indefinitely.

Infinity Crate

Little spoken about is Infinity Crate, we stopped ordering as we were getting double pop vinyls and the stuff wasn’t really worth the wait at the time but I know a lot of people that are dedicated to the boxes.

That said it has changed a lot since the last time I ordered from them, the website has had a major overhaul and the new design is much better. Also the subscrption service has changed you can have the the classic box which is £16.99 p+p and a premium box £23.99 p+p for the ultimate geek.

That said I couldn’t find many reviews about there April 2016 box with the theme “Allegiance” which I thought was a pretty good box.

I’m just going to jump right in with the contents I’ve seen and you can tell me what you think.

The classic crate: Pop & t-shirt personalised to you.

  • Superman Funko Pop Vinyl
  • Captain America Funko Pop Vinyl
  • Batman socks (with capes)
  • Games of Thrones : Jon Snow tshirt (depends on your interest)
  • Batman vs Superman Keyring
  • Batman vs Superman Vinyl Sticker
  • Batman vs Superman Mini Poster
  • Captain America Shield Mouse Mat

Two Pop Vinyls alone are a good deal, my son would have loved to get his hands on it but I don’t know if two pops are common for the classic crate and Batman socks with capes (hell yeah) only way that would be better if they were Harley Quinn.

Not a Game of Thrones fan but it’s got a huge fan base,so Jon Snow tshirt for them my only complaint would be white tshirts….hate them. Keyring and vinyl sticker for the long awaited Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice again yes… I may be weighed down by my many keyrings in the future but they aren’t boring ones.

Mini poster is a bit crap but oh well and as for the mouse mat I know what your thinking, who sits at a PC these days…not many of use its true but did you know mouse mats make great dinner table placemats. Your probably laughing but it’s true plus you’ll have extra geeky ones that no-one has (unless they’ve read this too) and in that case they have good taste 🙂

The Premium Crate:

  • Batman Inflatable Bat
  • Superman Socks (with capes)
  • Batman Wallet
  • The Hobbit Stickers/ tattoos
  • Funko Pop Vinyl Captain America Civil War Iron Man
  • Game Of Thrones / Captain America Civil War Mug
  • Mini Poster (same as classic)
  • Tshirt (as per interests)

What do you guys think?, May’s theme is Honour.

Marvel Collector Corps Civil War Box unboxing

With the film finally realised and many now receiving their Marvel Collector Corps Civil War Box in the mail, this seems like the perfect time to discuss what’s in the latest Marvel Collectors Corps Box. But before we do…

Who has seen Captain America Civil War, my husband was lucky enough to have the release day off work so we dropped the little ones off at the grandparent and had a night off. It was amazing! . my eldest was not happy we went without her but geeky date night comes first as it doesn’t happen often. I won’t give any spoilers for the people that haven’t been yet but two things I’m still #teamcap all the way and secondly as with all Marvel films the clip after the credits, this time there’s two :).

Anyway back to the Civil War box, as you may remember last time we didn’t actually receive this box at the time I didn’t really care there are things I’m gutted we missed but to me the contents are so similar to the general stuff available. The other half is the complete opposite he would have loved the box and its contents. There is no way we’re paying rip off prices so we’ll probably back order with the next box.

So here goes if you’ve got to this point and don’t want to know the contents, turn back now!

  • Crossbones Patch & Black Panther Badge
  • Captain America Civil War pop T-shirt : Who’s side are you on?
  • Black Panther Variant Cover Comic
  • Civil War Lanyard (Iron Man & Captain America)
  • Exclusive Captain America Civil War Tony Stark unmasked Dorbz
  • Exclusive Captain America & Iron Man Action pose 2 pack Funko pop vinyl

What do you think of the contents?. Did you miss out?. Let me know in the ccomments.

Marvel Collector Corps Febuary 2016 – Deadpool

I know it’s not Febuary anymore and the latest Marvel Collector Corps is already on it’s way out to people but I haven’t yet reviewed this box which was one of my all time favourite geeky goodies boxes.

Marvel Collector Corps Deadpool box 1

I have a tendancy to not write a review if I don’t like a box, that’s not to say I just can’t be bothered but I end up disappointed after you wait for it to turn up and the last thing I want to write is a full post of I don’t like this, don’t like that….blah blah talk about negativity. so yes in short I wasn’t a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy Box, the Villans box wasn’t for me but I quite liked Marvel’s Secret Wars. I was literally over the moon about the Deadpool box I couldn’t wait and I’m looking forward to Junes theme but i’ll get back to that later.

Deadpool was constantly a topic leading up to Febuary whether they were talking about this long awaited box, the just as antisapted film or a multitude of opinions on what the films rating should be. Now mine and the husbands Valentine Day was cinema to see the film and we loved it so the box coming about two weeks later wasn’t bad timing.

Unfortuetly no video this time around but a look at what was in this awesome box:

  • Deadpool Patch & Pin Badge (Of Course)
  • Funko Deadpool (Leaping) Pop Vinyl 123
  • Funko Dorbz Deadpool Cowboy
  • Deadpool Variant Cover Comic
  • Deadpool T-Shirt Grey (3 other designs available)
  • Deadpool inverted Mopeez

What an amazing box in my opinion, my son wanted to steal everything I think we now have a new Deadpool fan in the house, wait until I show him there is a Pirate Deadpool Dorbz. I wanted the t-shirt so I think I’m going to see if I can get hold of another one hopefully in a different colour so I don’t mix the husbands ad mine up.

It’s a pity but we won’t be getting the Captain America Civil War, I’ve seen a spolier online and although I love the films theres nothing new or different in the box that I feel I’m mssing out on. Obviously that’s a personal opinion as my husband is gutted we’ve missed out on it.

Anyway June is what I’ve got my mind set to now with the theme Marvel’s Women of Power, I’ve been waiting for one like this and I’m quite excited to see what they come up with. There is so many directions they can go with the idea lets hope they don’t let us down.
