Funko Pop Unboxing Captain America & Kylo Ren Exclusives

Funko Pops are fun minimalistic designed versions of well known pop culture entities. The main Funko Pop style is a 3.75″ vinyl figurine with big eyes, minimal facial expression, and distinctive details to represent the given character. Today, we have a new Funko Pop unboxing for you with two new Funko Pops to add to our collection. Both are exclusives from Khol’s and Wal-Mart, respectively.

The first Pop is Captain America with Photon Shield that is made for Captain America’s 75th anniversary, and it’s a Khol’s Exclusive. Khol’s doesn’t sell the most Pops, so this Pop is relatively tough to track down. The Pop takes cues from the classic comic book style of Captain America with the wings on the cap, simple costume, and the relatively dark blue outfit. The shield is the main distinguisher, and it offers a translucent style. Like other Marvel Pops, there’s the bobble head, though all be told, it’s not the most advanced variant that Funko has released.

The second Pop is Kylo Ren Unmaksed, which is a Wal-Mart exclusive. Funko has made standard Kylo, Unhooded Kylo, and now Unmasked Kylo to give you a look at his face. Unmasked Kylo takes the same stance as the standard Kylo, just with his face and black hair showing. It’s worth noting that Funko is releasing a new Battle Damage Kylo Ren in the June/July window. Battle Damage Kylo looks just like Unmaksed Kylo, but with a different in-action pose. Unmasked Kylo is another variant of the original, while Battle Damage Kylo is a new number in the Star Wars set. Unmaksed Kylo features the bobble head and black stand of the Star Wars series, and fits Kylo in the latter fourth of the movie.

We hope you enjoyed our Funko Pop unboxing, and we will have more coming soon.

Loot Crate Unboxing Video: June 2016 Dystopia Theme

The Loot Crate June 2016 theme is Dystopia with connections to Terminator, Fallout, The Matrix, and more. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month geek/gamer box for the new month. Our Loot Crate unboxing:

Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)

The June 2016 Loot Crate nails the theme, and covers each entertainment property that was teased. The past few months have emphasized fewer high quality items, but the June 2016 box goes back to the 2015 style of more items. The big item of the month is usually the t-shirt, and June offers a great print of Robocop. You don’t have the be a Robocop fan to appreciate the print. Now, instead of a Funko Pop figure, this month’s Loot Crate includes a Funko Dorbz. Dorbz is the newer, smaller, and less popular line of vinyl figures, and it instantly makes you think of a Pop instead. With that said, the Fallout Power Armor Dorbz really looks good, but it would be nice to have an exclusive, instead of a common.

Beyond the two big ticket items, there are three smaller items that definitely have appeal. The metal plate print for Terminator 2 might be my favorite item of the month, and it’s definitely worth hanging up. The metal aspect nails the Terminator theme, and there’s no fluff in the print beyond the skull. The Matrix puzzle is only 300 pieces, and the scene is from the later films, rather than the original. The puzzle is still worth putting together. Finally, there’s a blank key with a Bioshock Infinite theme. It doesn’t offer the most of the theme, but could be used daily.

The June 2016 Loot Crate offers good value, and a wide range of themed products. There could have been a few alterations to improve the overall box, but it’s definitely one of Loot Crate’s better efforts.

Funko Pop Unboxing Melisandre Exlusive and Mrs. Potts & Chip

Funko Pops are fun minimalistic designed versions of well known pop culture entities. The main Funko Pop style is a 3.75″ vinyl figurine with big eyes, minimal facial expression, and distinctive details to represent the given character. Today, we’re unboxing two new Funko Pops to add to our collection. We picked them both up at our local Barnes & Noble, and the first one is a Barnes & Noble Exclusive. It’s Melisandre from Game of Thrones, and the exclusive nature offers a subtly translucent style to her red dress. The second Pop is of Mrs. Potts & Chip from Beauty and the Beast. Enjoy our Funko Pop unboxing video below.

The B&N exclusive Funko Pop Melisandre really looks good with a light background, and nice lighting where you’re displaying it. The translucent nature looks great, and it’s an exclusive that offers worthwhile distinction from the standard Melisandre. The Mrs. Potts & Chip Funko Pop is a nice one as Mrs. Potts is about the size of Melisandre, and you get the bonus Chip included. Chip is super cute in its small stature, and Chip is a stand out in the Disney catalog for cuteness.

We hope you enjoyed our Funko Pop unboxing, and we will have more coming soon.

Loot Crate Unboxing Video: May 2016 Power Theme

The Loot Crate May 2016 theme is Power with connections to Marvel, Warcraft, and more. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month geek/gamer box for the new month. Our Loot Crate unboxing:

Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)

The big geek & gamer release of May 2016 is Captain America: Civil War. Loot Crate offered a Marvel connection this month with Thanos’ Infinity Glove oven Mitt and a QFig Hulk. The oven glove might be the best piece of this month’s crate with the power of the infinity stones, while you cook. QFigs are high quality creations, and we last saw one in February with Deadpool. The Hulk figurine depicts a nice action pose, though it’s not quite a Funko Pop.

The t-shirt of this month’s box is a silhouetted image based on the upcoming Warcraft movie, that also ties directly to the gaming pedigree. It might have been better to get a Marvel based t-shirt with an extra item based on Warcraft, rather than the other way around. The final piece of the crate is a Dragonball Z plush key chain accessory. It’s the first Dragonball Z item in Loot Crate, and it’s a nice depiction of the series. There are only four items in this month’s loot crate, as there’s an emphasis on quality over quantity. The range of items might not be for everyone, but the theme is used well. It would have been nice to see more timely Marvel items, but the items that are included are definitely good. This month’s crate isn’t the best or worse loot crate, but it’s fun to open.

Topps Star Wars Force Awakens Series 2 Trading Cards Unboxing Video

We unboxed Star Wars The Force Awakens Series 1 when the film hit theaters. Now, with the DVD/blu-ray release, there’s series 2 to unbox. The set continues the story of the movie for the base cards, and offers all new inserts to pull. We have another blaster box that contains 10 packs with six cards each, plus one medallion card. The set features 101 cards to continue where Series 1 left off, and the insert sets including Concept Art, Movie Posters, Heroes of the Resistance, Power of the First Order, and more. The Blaster Box can be found at your local Target or Wal-Mart, and retails for $19.99 as compared to the $135 price on the hobby box. Rare cards are at much higher odds, but it’s a great way to collect the main set.

Loot Crate Unboxing Video: April 2016 Quest Theme

The Loot Crate April 2016 theme is Quest with connections to Uncharted 4, Harry Potter, and more. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month geek/gamer box for the new month. Our Loot Crate unboxing:

Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)

Loot Crate has started 2016 strong with great collections in January, February, and March. Their streak ended in April with a relatively disappointing crate. The quest theme has a lot of potential, and yet the selections this month mostly miss the mark. The Uncharted item as a small poster and the Harry Potter item as socks provide two small extras tied to the big names for the theme. This month’s t-shirt is from the movie Labyrinth, and while it’s nice to honor David Bowie, it’s a relatively niche film that doesn’t hit the quest theme as much as many other franchises. The Vikings drinking cup and the 20 sided dice ice cube maker are neat, but I don’t know if many will get much use out of. The neat factor of each item will wear off quickly.

January, February, and March really nailed their respective themes with products that offer long term use. They may have set the bar high, but the April 2016 Loot Crate doesn’t even come close.

Loot Crate March 2016 Vs Theme: Unboxing Video

The Loot Crate March 2016 theme is Versus in honor of Batman vs Superman hitting theaters. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month geek/gamer box for the new month.

Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)

This month’s Loot Create nailed the theme highlighted by the Star Trek “Mirror Mirror” episode t-shirt. There’s nothing quite like Spock against goatee Spock, and the art style fits the era so well. The Alien or Predator Titan figure is a high quality piece that is definitely shelf worthy. The reversible beanie for Daredevil and Punisher is nice and timely with season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix. The only real negative is the Batman Vs Superman item. The wallet is nice, but it seemed Batman vs Superman would play a bigger role in this month’s loot crate.

All in all, Loot Crate has delivered items with lasting appeal through the first three months of 2016.

Loot Crate February 2016 Dead Theme: Unboxing Video

The Loot Crate February 2016 theme is Dead. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month geek/gamer box for the new month. The Dead theme ties into The Walking Dead and Deadpool. There are spoilers in the videos, if you like to open the box to get a surprise.

The February 2016 Loot Crate is a great one highlighted by the Deadpool content. Deadpool came out on Valentine’s Day weekend, and has blown away the box office. Getting a great Deadpool shirt, and figurine shows perfect timing, and outstanding quality. The Walking Dead additions of the soap ears and McFarlane figurine round out a great box. 2016 has been a strong one for Loot Crate so far with items that you will no doubt get use of, and show off proudly.

Loot Crate January 2016 Galaxy Unboxing Video

The Loot Crate January 2016 theme is Invasion. We’re here to unbox all that’s included to show off the $20/month edition for the start of the new year. Loot Crate’s resolution is to have a t-shirt in every box in 2016, and we kick things off nicely this year. There are spoilers in the videos, if you like to open the box to get a surprise.

The January 2016 edition delivers items from The X-Files, Alien, Space Invaders, and The Fifth Element. The highlight is The X-Files with a t-shirt and flashlight in honor of its six episode return to FOX. Not to be outdone, the facehugger plush from Alien is outstanding, especially with the included rubber band to strap it to your face. The Invasion theme is fully fleshed out, and a nice start to 2016.
