The next box of wonder is one its way very soon, the GameStop Exclusive Knock Out Funko Mystery Box!
Again as usual they are called Mystery Boxes but it’s common practice to reveal the majority of the contents before hand it seems, not that i mind too much. The contents of this box seems very fun! By the way, if you feel knowing the contents might be spoilerish then click away now! First we have Armor King which is very fun, in his usual armor and green and red eye coloration. Next my favorite of the group, a Rock Candy of Chun Li, very nice. Lastly there is a Pocket POP of Akuma.
But that’s not all, you didn’t think you’d get away with buying just one of these boxes did you? Oh no. GameStop wants you to buy many of these boxes, so the same as they did with the Black Friday box there will be rare variants of the figures inside. Again i’m going to guess that doesn’t include the Rock Candy, so you can have a selection of Chun Li’s to go with your Enchantresses. Official they say “Rare Variants” & a “Golden Figure”, this seems to mean there will be 1 Golden Figure and also variants of the POP. Now i’m assuming these will all replace the POP, it’s possible they won’t (hopefully) but likely they will. Also will this be different figures entirely or different versions of Armor King? We will have to wait and see! Feel free to share your thoughts below, glam shots and info coming up!
19th April Update: Today the box has been released! And we finally get to become witness unto the bountiful produce of the GameStop Knock Out box. How bountiful? Well i will let you decide that one. It seems all 3 of the items have a variant, that is definitely a step up from the Black Friday box where only the POP varied. So the benefit here is that if you buy multiple boxes at least you don’t have a mountain of the same things! I purchased 6 boxes myself so i will report back soon and reveal what i got, i mean it’s always possible there are more variants. I was originally planning to only get one but .. i’m really getting into Rock Candy so i wanted to get them all! Full reveal coming up!
Update 2: I opened up my boxes and got 5 regulars of each and 1 chase of each but no golden Chun Li sadly! So it seems the odds are 1 in 6 for the regular chases and either 1 in 12 or 18 for the golden Chun Li.
