The Marvel Collector Corps have finally shipped out!! After roughly 2 months of waiting since the box was first announced, we have finally got them in our hands. If you’ve been hiding under a rock, or simply just don’t follow the world of geeky subscription boxes let me fill you in… Marvel and Funko teamed up together to create their own subscription box dubbed the “Collector Corps”. The boxes are shipped every other month and they have nothing but exclusive merchandise inside. Because of this, I am not going to price them out because it’s pointless since you cant get this stuff anywhere else (unless they are flipping them …which they most definitely are). So pricing is simple… the contents are worth exactly the price of the box (about $30) unless you feel the need to pay the outrageous mark ups on it. Ok enough talk on to the video…
ok so let’s take a closer look!
Exclusive Collector Corps Pin and Patch
I’m thinking these are a kind of “welcome to the club” type item for the first box. Maybe they will do it for every box who knows but they are kinda cool. I’m not really into either so they will just be tucked away somewhere.
Exclusive Hulkbuster Funko Pop
Of course this was in the box… everyone has seen the pics a million times… it’s still a very awesome item to behold. The Hulkbuster is heavy… like seriously heavy! He is every bit as cool and detailed as one would expect from a Funko such as this. He is eventually going to have a place of honor among my geeky displays.
Exclusive Avengers Issue #1 Variant Cover Edition
This is another item that got leaked to the public long before the boxes shipped out. It’s a very cool Avengers / Guardians of the Galaxy team up issue which is very cool and I will definitely read then hang on to in a safe place.
Exclusive Ultron Dorbz Vinyl Figure
At first I thought this was just a blind box until I realized that everyone got the same guy. Ultron is the exclusive and the rest of the figures are in a regular blind box. I don’t really need another vinyl figure series to collect but he is pretty cool… although a bit too happy and well …bowling pin shaped for my tastes.
Exclusive Marvel Collector Corps T-Shirt
Everyone got a ___ vs. Ultron shirt. Mine was the Hulk but the others I believe were: Iron Man, Thor, & Captain America. (but I could be wrong) Either way its a really cool shirt design and I’m glad I got Hulk over some of the others.
…and there you have the very first Marvel Collector Corps geeky subscription box. Personally I thought it was awesome! Worth every penny and if I were to price it out I would find the value well above what I paid. So (naturally) this box was themed “Avengers” and the next box …due in 2 months, will me “Ant Man” themed. I’m not at all familiar with Ant Man but with the movie coming out I’m certainly not going to miss what they have in store for us. So that’s that… and we now have to wait for another 2 months for the next box to ship so I’ll see ya then…
