Has it really been 2 months already since the first Marvel Collector Corps came out? I get so many geeky subscription boxes that they sometimes run together lol. Well the theme for June’s box was “Ant-Man” so you can pretty much guess that this one is filled with …well just a bunch of Ant Man stuff. Not that it’s a bad thing but there’s not really any surprise to the box if ya know what I mean. So lets check out what we got…
…if you couldn’t tell, I wasn’t exactly in the mood to be filming so I just kinda phoned this one in… after all… it’s all just Ant Man. So check out the pics…
Ant-Man Exclusive Pin and Collector Corps Patch
So it looks like this is going to be the Collector Corps thing …having a patch and pin in every box. They are essentially the same as the Avengers box in terms of style and design. I’m not sure if that’s cool having them all be uniform or will it get dull after a while… at least they are nice quality and not the cheap buttons that the other boxes ship.
Collector Corps Exclusive Ant Man Comic …issue #5 ?
I totally overlooked this in my video, but the exclusive comic in this month’s box is issue #5. It doesn’t mean a huge deal to me but to most collectors that means they have to go out and buy issues 1-4 before they can read this one an know what’s going on. Me… I just read them and then store them away never giving it a second thought.
Ant Man Pop Tees
The design on this shirt is rather dull as most people have agreed. From any distance at all you cant see Ant Man on the shirt… which is the point but makes it pretty “blah”. They do get bonus points though because it is pretty clever and those who get close enough to realize it might get a small chuckle out of it.
Collector Corps Ant-Man Exclusive Mystery Minis
These are actually VERY cool. They made an exclusive line of 4 mystery minis specifically for this box. I got regular and blackout Ant-Man so I cant complain. The only down side for a collector is that they will have to buy the other 2 from flippers at an inflated price no doubt.
Marvel Collector Corps Ant-Man Exclusive Funko Pop
So the company got a TON of flak this month from crushed and damaged boxes being shipped out. They then added more bad press by claiming they were damaged in shipping while inside the box, however, most outer boxes arrived in perfect condition. I was one of the lucky ones and my Pop was only slightly bowed out on the top and bottom which easily fell back into place with a Pop protector. The unmasked Ant-Man is nothing special and some people have said its a recycled head sculpt. I don’t care for the unmasked versions myself but I thought the tiny Pop inside was just way too awesome!
…and there you have the Marvel Collector Corps “Ant-Man” box for June 2015. I don’t price this one out because everything inside is completely exclusive so any similar products really don’t compare. Overall I thought it was decent… if I had some of the issues others were having I would have thought differently. They DEFINITELY could have done way better on this box being that it comes from Marvel and Funko directly. There’s no reason why this shouldn’t be completely epic every single month when the product comes directly from the source. The theme for August is going to be “Secret Wars” so that definitely has some potential!
