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.

Superhero Necklaces just added!

We are a huge superhero loving family, films are watched together,our own comics are shared, we all have our favourite and we even love some of the villians but who doesn’t. Our children are growing up in the same way to love all things geeky with a mind of their own and what parent wouldn’t be proud of that.

When I was looking for a Batman Necklace I couldn’t find one I liked, I didn’t want a huge chunky metal one I wanted something lighter but couldn’t find the right one so I made my own. Once I’d made mine my eldest daughter wanted one and asked if I could make a Wonder Woman one too. So that’s how I began making superhero necklaces. With all the films and Tv shows around right now it’s no suprising how popular Superheros have become. Many long awaited films are out this year.

[shopify embed_type=”product” shop=”msretrodesigns.myshopify.com” product_handle=”superhero-necklace” show=”all”]

I currently have Doctor Who and Superman/ Supergirl available with the rest of the stock to be updated within the week. Then Avengers, Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman will also be available. If there is anything you’d like but it’s not yet available drop me a message and I’ll see what I can do.

I was #TeamBatman and #Teamcap, who were your loyalties to?

Marvel Collector Corps Ant-man Unboxing

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
Ant-man t-shirt
2 Ant-man mystery minis
Ant-man comic #5 varient cover
Ant-man Pin Badge
Ant-man Patch

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?

June Pop In a Box Unboxing

Hey guys,

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.

Harley Quinn – Pocket Pop Keychain

As you may have seen from my tweets or others posts this week I wasn’t particularly happy with my Amazon parcel I collected from the post office. I was awaiting my Iron Man Mark 43 and my Harley Quinn Keychain (Eek!)

Unfortunately although there was no damage to the shipping box, the Iron Man box was damaged and had definitely been opened before even though this was suppose to be new from Amazon. Still annoyed at this as they only offered the option of a refund and we could return it.
On the happier note…Harley Quinn Keyring, I love it!. Harley Quinn is by far one of my favourite characters and I’m a huge fan of her. If you haven’t seen the Suicide Squad series it is worth more than just a look.

The only keyring I’ll ever need for my keys or may add her to my bag either way awesome and couldn’t be happier. Now where do I find a Poison Ivy?

First Funko Pop Unboxing from Pop in a box

The first of many posts to come, I’m so excited to share this with you guys and I know you’ll enjoy the suprise of what’s in each box. The husband and I decided it was finally time to start collecting the awesome collectables we’ve wanted but didn’t want round our kids chocolate covered fingers. Now they are older we’ve jumped in head first and ordered our first round of goodies. Starting today with our first Pop in a box.
Pop in a box is a subscription service to recieve between 1 and 6 Funko Pop Vinyls a month saving money the more you order. You scroll through the site giving a thumbs up to the items you want the most and thumbs down to the ones you don’t want to recieve. So much choice and you can also keep track of the items you have by marking it in your collection, this will also make sure you don’t recieve that item.

If your interested in getting your very own Pop in a box check out their site at popinabox.co.uk

So without anymore waiting here is what we recieved this month:

Ahhh here goes!

As you can see from the pictures we recieved the new Avengers Age of Ultron Captain America and Vision. Super happy I was hoping for these but thought there was no way we would get these in our first box. Only way this could have been better to me was if we had Hulk… Love Hulk!
Also each box comes with popping candy, it was orange Tango and it was yummy.
Still have more on the way so pop back soon.
