Has it been 2 months already?? I swear we just got the Antman box and another Marvel Collector Corps box shows up. This month’s theme is “Secret Wars” which I will admit I don’t know much about… at all. But I’m never one to shy away from the unknown when it’s geeky, exclusive, and shoved in a box so let’s jump right into it…
…ok so lets check out the goods a little closer shall we?
Marvel Collector Corps Pin & Patch
As with the previous boxes… they included a special pin and patch for the theme. The character on the patch had me a little confused in my video because, like I said, I’m not familiar with this series. Apparently he is Falcon as the new Captain America but I have yet to read any details about it.
Marvel Secret Wars Collector Corps Exclusive Variant Cover
I’ve received a few variant covers for this issue as it’s been out for a little while now. One of these days I will get around to reading it. I like the Funko Pop design though, it’s a nice touch to tie things in with the box.
Marvel Secret Wars Funko Pop Tees
This shirt is MUCH better than the Antman one from the last box. However, it’s not as cool as most of the other Funko Pop Tees I’ve seen out there so they still have room for improvement. It’s a cool design though and I will wear it for sure.
Marvel Collector Corps Exclusive Spider-man Funko Pop
Even without knowing the back story of this variant Spider-man I can still appreciate this awesome Funko Pop! He appears to be just a repaint of an existing mold although I could be wrong.
Marvel Collector Corps Exclusive Thor Funko Pop
More puzzling than the Spider-man paint job is the fact that Thor has boobs. So it’s a girl and I get that lol but this is one back story that I need to look up. As a big bulky dude, Thor never interested me much, but a female Thor might be something that interests me. I am a strong believer that superheroes need more strong female characters and that they don’t necessarily need to be scantily clad (although I am not complaining lol)
…and there you have the Marvel Collector Corps “Secret Wars” box for August 2015. I don’t put a value on this box as it is full of exclusives so there really isn’t another alternative for these items. Personally, I like that we got 2 exclusive Funko Pops this month. I believe that is a first out of any geeky subscription box out there. The October box is themed “Villains” and promises an all original Funko Pop mold inside… no repaints. I love getting the Collector Corps box even though I’m not a big comic book reader for the simple fact that it’s put out by the source and not just another geek box company.
