Unboxing Fugitive Toys' F-Box December 2015 Edition

Fugitive Toys is an online site that specializes in selling vinyl toys. They had their own version of a monthly mystery box, known as F-Box, that is/was insanely popular within the Funko POP! community. While it was themed, it was not a monthly subscription box, like many others are. In order to obtain one, fans would have to follow their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages in order to see when sales for them went live. They usually contained exclusive and hard to find POP!'s as well as other cool items centered around the theme.

Because of the limited number, they would literally sell out within minutes of going up for sale. People were so passionate about getting one that earlier this year, due to threats of violence against Fugitive Toys employees, they stopped offering them. In a statement from Fugitive Toys, they said, "Effective immediately, the F Box will be taking a break. It may be a month or two, or it may be forever." This Christmas, Fugitive decided to put together an F-Box to celebrate the season and offer it to fans after months of being off the radar. There's no word on whether or not this was a one-time F-Box for Christmas or if it's back for good.

This was my first F-Box, as I was never quick enough to get one when they were offered regularly. Excitement was high when this showed up on my doorstep. I tore into this bad boy as soon as I got inside. The first thing I saw was a black Santa hat with the words, "Bah-Humbug" on it. Digging further into the box, I peeped my first Funko Horror Dorbz (Jason) and a Nightmare Before Christmas POP! keychain (Vampire Teddy). After that, I got to the good stuff- the POP! figures! I pulled out a Santa Claus (Awesome!) from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Fugitive Toys exclusive Zombie Ed from Shaun of the Dead. The Ed was an awesome surprise as I had literally just gotten home after picking up a Shaun figure from Toys R Us earlier in the day. Definitely worth the $23.00 (plus shipping) for this box, hopefully it comes back monthly!

In this month's F-Box:

- Fugitive Toys Exclusive Ed (Shaun of the Dead) POP! Figure
- Santa Claus (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer) POP! Figure
- Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th) Funko Dorbz Figure
- Vampire Teddy (Nightmare Before Christmas) POP! Keychain
- "Bah-Humbug" Santa Hat
