Forbidden Planet Haul

IMG_8562

When working in London yesterday I was only about 20 minutes away from one of my favourite shops and I had my fellow comic and pop hunter not far away so I put two and two together and headed for a good old Forbidden Planet Haul. Now, I know that I’m like a kid in a sweet shop when it comes to Forbidden Planet, so I only let myself in there every now and again for a haul. Enjoy!

Cedric Diggory Funko Pop 

I’ve been after Cedric for a while now, people have been selling him for silly prices because of the Underground Toys sticker (stickers are a big deal in the pop collecting world), but I managed to pick him up in a very beautiful Harry Potter section. IMG_8563

Maz with Lightsaber 

I knew I wanted to get a Maz figure, I didn’t know there was one with a lightsaber. This one is a little different and because I’d never seen it before I popped it in my basket.

Stark Direwolf and Jon Snow Funko Pop 

If you’re friends with me on Goodreads, you’ll know that I am currently making my way through the Game of Thrones series. I’m loving so many characters, particularly Jon, Arya and Tyrion. I’m only on the first book so I’m excited to see what happens (even though I do know that secret from the end of season six) but I do have a soft spot for Jon and the Stark’s.

Nemi and Star Trek trades. 

Nemi reminded me of the comic book strip from Kerrang magazine growing up and as it was in the sale I thought I’d give it a go. I also saw the latest Star Trek movie on Monday after seeing the other two and so I’m getting into Star Trek and wanted to take a look at the graphic novels that are being produced.

Marvel Collector Corps: Deadpool – Unboxing and Review

IMG_6484

Today I got some post that was certain to cheer me up, after ordering the day it was due to close I’m so glad I did. After the success of my Deadpool post last month and my Lootcrate unboxing post I decided to share the new subscription in my life! Of course if you haven’t gotten your box yet and don’t want any spoilers then don’t read this post!!

I have a serious Funko Pop! collection (but that’s another post entirely!) so finding this exclusive Deadpool Pop! in a really awesome pose was great. There are about £15 at least in value, so it’s great value for money too. Now I need to find the Deadpool bathtime pop, hmm.

Of course with every Collector Corps box there is a pin and sew on badge, again they’re good quality, I’m not sure what I’ll do with them but they’re cute. I also got this little stuffed Deadpool, he’s adorable and I love him!

Now, I’ll admit that I’m not keen on Dorbz but, again, this shows the quality of the box itself as they’re not cheap. In his little cowboy hat I can see why a lot of my friends are in love with him, this just isn’t my thing!

Two classics in a good sub box, a t-shirt and comic book. There were 4 different shirts available for this box and I’m glad I got this one, simply because I like the colours and will wear it more. As for the comic book, I haven’t read it yet but I’m looking forward to curling up with it.

Overall I’m really impressed this box, it’s fun and well worth the money I paid for it. I also like the fact that because the boxes come bi-monthly, not only does it spread out the cost, but it also means that there isn’t any rubbish in the box (from what I’ve heard anyway). So I’ll be keeping this subscription, especially as next is the Captain America box, I can’t wait! IMG_6490

Of course, I’d love to hear what fellow collectors or just Deadpool fans thought of this box, leave me a comment below!

February Loot Crate unboxing and review

loot-crate-logo

As something new to my blog, I’ve decided to talk about the subscription boxes I get, review them and just generally have an excuse to geek out! If you don’t want any spoilers then do not read this post as it contains the contents of this month’s box, but I will tell you it’s a good one.

I’ve been getting Loot Crate since December, starting with the galaxy crate which I was really impressed with, particularly the Han Solo exclusive pop. I say exclusive, it really just had a Lootcrate sticker on and then got released later, but I can live with that. Last month we had the Invasion crate, which was ok but not really my thing. This month however we were promised some Deadpool and, you guys know I love Deadpool.

My absolute favourite part of this crate was the official Marvel t-shirt. It’s soft and a great colour as well as a fab design. Great start to the crate, absolutely love it.

This month’s pin, they’ve changed for 2016. Now going to proper metal pins. I’m not sure in the point of these pins, don’t get me wrong they’re cool but I don’t usually know what to do with them.

IMG_6447

Another awesome Deadpool part of the Crate. I loved this, it’s funny as well as being a really cool edition to the house. I’ve also never seen these before, it’s something fun and a little different.

IMG_6449

I don’t know what the deal with this is, because I’ve never watched the Walking Dead. I was torn between being grossed out and impressed by these, I’ve never heard of soap being in a subscription box but I like the idea.

Lego type mystery pouches. These are kind of cool I have to admit, although I did give it to my boyfriend. I’m not a zombie girl.

This month’s crate was definitely worth the money and I am absolutely in love with the contents. Next month’s theme for the crate hasn’t been released yet but I’m hoping the standards keep up to what they have been for the last few months.

Great shout Loot Crate!
