I sub to all 3 boxes and got the (free) SW Cantina box yesterday. Got a different shirt than what I got the first time I got this box, so that's cool.

That's the idea. They want to do something nice, empty out their extra stock AND try to get you to subscribe to one of their other services. If you look in the email it says that they are going to send you a box from one of their other services.

You are absolutely correct. I think there is confusion because Funko's original instructions have been lost along the way. We subscribe to SB and received Ant Man and Secret Wars boxes. We couldn't be happier and are appreciative of Funkos generosity.

Mine arrived today, spider-man box. Not too shabby, I'll keep a couple things for myself and give a couple of things out.

Still no order in either of my accounts after my "Gift from Funko" e-mail. Not mad, just sad :(
I wouldn't doubt if they flip flopped on internationals due to the shipping costs but wouldn't blame them either.

Hmm, no tracking # with the email? The one I received had one but I also ship to a US address so maybe that's why.

We only subscribe to the SB boxes. Our gift was the exact same box we had already received from SB - even the exact same tshirt. But it was a nice gift none-the-less.

That is hard to understand given the fact they stated they were going to award past boxes outside of our subscription. I can understand if a person was receiving all three subs, then it would be impossible to meet that criteria. It is just hard to make sense of it all.

Not sure how they determined what box to send us.

I got a second Guardians box. I can't really complain as it was free, but I'm a little bummed. They must really have had a hard time selling them.

Correct, no tracking. Just a general message, and yeah I have it shipped directly to home.

I'm in the same boat, received the same email that you did on the 29th of last month. Still nothing in my MCC recent orders, no further email with a tracking number. Only thing I can figure right now is that the storms on the west coast are wreaking havoc on Funko, Having said that though I'd appreciate perhaps an update from Funko explaining that it'll take a little longer than originally expected.

Seems like I'm in the same boat. I only sub to SB, and I got the Bounty Hunter box... which I've already gotten. I get it if you sub to all 3, you would naturally get one you already had, but this seems like a waste. Guess it was free... but still. Bummed. In the e-mail they said it would be to one of the lines I didn't subscribe to, so what gives?

Got mine today and got the MCC Spider-man box. I'm really happy because I don't actively subscribe to MCC so that was one I really regretted not getting because I wanted the Pop. I'm definitely glad it wasn't one of the few I already have. Thanks Funko!

Just received the Spider-Man box! I only subscribe to SB, and have only picked up two Marvel boxes along the way. I was honestly expecting a DC box because of that, but Spidey or Strange were the two MCC boxes I was hoping for. So yay!

Has anyone gotten a DC box at all as their freebie?

I get the DC Legion of Collectors box, so I got a Star Wars: Smugglers Bounty box Free. It was the Bounty Hunter themed Box with Boba Fett and IG-88 Pops, Boba Fett Patch, Bossk pin, and T Shirt.

Pretty cool box, and definitely even more cool for FREE! Thanks Funko :)

Not sure how they determined what box to send us. It was certainly not based on what we do not subscribe to since I got the exact same box, same tshirt, same subscription that is the only one I do subscribe to. I am not complaining mind you, but I am bummed a little.


Your experience seems to be the exception and not the rule. Several have posted the original e-mail from Funko that specifically says we are to receive a sub other than from the one we subscribe too in the hope we will order from that sub group. Why not e-mail Funko Subs and let them know a mistake has taken place and they may send you one of the other subs since that was their original intention.

I finally got around to picking up my post holiday gift box today from my PO box and it was the Smugglers Bounty Force Awakens box with the Phasma and Tie Fighter pops. I do have this box already (it was actually the first sub box from Funko I ever got) but was quite pleased that the t-shirt was different. There was even a little anticipation before I opened it on which tie fighter I would get...it was the regular one (no red stripe) same as the first time I got this box. Since I already purchased the "chase" on Ebay for a hefty price just after the box came out that was okay too. I feel fortunate I got a box since I subscribe to all 3 with autorenew. :)

I think this was pretty common by the sound of it. Go back through this thread, there are plenty of people reporting duplicate boxes, or boxes from a line they already sub to.
I got the same email as everyone else, and since I've subbed to both SB and MCC from the beginning I expected a LoC box based on that bit about receiving something you don't already sub to. Got ant man. I'm not gonna write to Funko about it, it was free so whatever. To me it just makes it seem like it was more of an inventory dump that they turned into some good publicity instead of trucking it off to a landfill. Still definitely a very cool move, shipping out probably thousands of free boxes. They absolutely did not have to do that. Congrats to folks who got something new.

Mine says it is marvel. Hoping for the women of power box or maybe the xmen box because those are the only two I don't have. Don't really need/desire either though
