Yeah yeah, I know it’s Sunday, but I still wanted to get my latest Funko Fridays posted. I had a crazy busy week, so don’t judge me for my tardiness, please=P This week’s theme is ‘Funko Finds’ which came just in time for me since I recently scored this super cute Kylo Ren Pop! This little guy is especially exciting for me because he marks my first collaboration with a brand since starting my blog. The UK-based website Zavvi contacted me earlier this month about providing a Pop! to me for an unbiased review. Of course I jumped at the opportunity, since one can never have too many Funkos, right?

I picked Kylo Ren because…well, Star Wars. You guys, we’re less than a month away from the premiere! I’m getting SO PSYCHED for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and I wanted this adorable villain to mark my first ever Star Wars Pop! Okay, I know there are cuter Star Wars characters out there (case in point) but I’m such a sucker for a baddie (you’re next, Captain Phasma). I absolutely love the little dings and imperfections in his mask…such a tiny detail, but I think it’s awesome how true to the character this Funko is. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that this Pop! is a bobble-head…something I managed to miss while I was ordering him, but yay, my first bobble-head Funko! Overall, I think he’s perfect and I’m happy to have him.

I wasn’t asked to talk about this by my contact at Zavvi (the whole conversation was completely fuss-free, actually…all they asked of me was to include a link for the site’s Funko list, which I’m happy to do) but I did want to mention how awesome this website is. I hadn’t heard of them before, and when I first glanced at the site I was a little skeptical since shipping from overseas to the US can be a bit of a pain. I’m so glad I didn’t let that deter me from working with them because I was very pleased!

For orders to the US, the shipping charge is only £0.99 which is about $1.50. Regardless of how much you order, it’s only $1.50 for standard delivery…that’s insane, right? And while shipping can generally take two weeks, I got mine in about a week. I saw some limited edition Funkos on this site that I haven’t seen for reasonable prices anywhere else, so I’ll definitely be ordering from them in the near future!

While the Funko choices are what really draw me to the site, I did want to mention that they carry pretty much everything a geeky gal (or guy!) could want. Games, DVDs, clothing, posters…even gadgets like laptops and cameras. It’s worth a look or two and it’s a definite perk that their shipping costs are so low. Handy tip: the website’s default currency is in British Pounds but you can switch to US Dollars in the upper right corner so that you don’t have to Google the exchange rate…like I was doing before I realized that I could change it, haha.

Thanks as always to the fabulous Kimi and Pepi for hosting Funko Fridays! I saw a lot of really cool Funko finds this week…I’m especially in awe of Kimi’s Spirit Yoda Funko. How gorgeous is that? Anyway, I hope you all have a fantastic week and if I don’t catch you beforehand, happy Thanksgiving to my US-based friends and readers! Enjoy your time spent with loved ones<3

    I’m a sucker for the baddies, too! Definitely have to check out their site 🙂

  2. This guy is so cool that I own him… twice. Haha I bought him and forgot and then later I bought the Target exclusive version (which is only so slightly different and wasn’t honestly worth buying a second time, oops!).

  3. So cool! We don’t have any of the new Star Wars POPs yet…my hubs is the main SW fan of the household, so I’m leaving it up to him to get any he wants!

    • My husband actually talked me into getting this guy, haha. I’m glad he did though, because now that he’s forced me to watch all the SW movies, I’m super amped for the new one<3

      • Nice! I enjoy the original trilogy (not a fan of the prequels really – Ep III is okay) but I don’t really consider Star Wars one of ‘my’ fandoms if you know what I mean. Definitely more my hubs territory haha. I’m excited to see the new one in theaters though!

        • I know what you mean! I had seen all of the movies but I was never especially excited about them. Hubby’s a huge fan though so we’ve been watching the movies to prepare for the premiere, and I’m loving them!
