Marvel Villains T-Shirt – Value $10?

This month’s shirt is very true to the theme and displays some of Marvel’s rogue gallery! The shirt features Thanos, Red Skull, Green Goblin, Ultron, Venom, and Loki. This subscription has had great shirts so far – and this one is great as well!

Here’s a closer look at the graphic and the villains!

Loki Dorbz – Value $15

All the vinyl figures in the box this month were exclusives! I’ve mentioned in past reviews that I’m starting to slowly come around to Dorbz, and this one is totally awesome! Loki’s horns are giant, true to form, and I’ve already got this one on my desk!

Here’s a closer look at Loki!

Morbius Funko POP – Value $30+

The Funko POP this shipment was an entirely exclusive Morbius Funko POP! It looks like you could’ve received a Zombie Morbius version, but this is the normal, Vampire, version. What I find interesting is that this is an entirely new Funko POP. Typically, exclusive and variants of pre-existing POPs, but this is entirely new – that’s cool, and I hope it continues.

Invincible Iron Man Exclusive Variant Cover – Value $3.99

I’m REALLY excited for this one. While it doesn’t really fall into the theme of villains, it is a comic that I’ve been holding off one reading – and now I can jump in! This is the first issue of the brand new Iron Man run! I’m even more excited after reading the blurb on Amazon:

Exploding out of the pages of Secret Wars, one of the most popular super heroes in the world gets a gigantic new series. From the creators that brought you Ultimate Spider-Man comes new armor, a new supporting cast, new villains and a new purpose that is going to tear itself across the entire Marvel Universe and beyond. With a shocker of a last page that will have everyone talking and the return of one of Tony’s biggest nemeses, you will not want to miss this! Also, who are Tony’s biological parents? The quest begins here!

Collectors Corps Patch and Pin

Exclusive Venom Pocket POP – Value $8+

The last item in the box features one of my favorite villains – Venom! This tiny pocket POP has a bobble head (all Marvel Funko POP items are bobble heads) and is a perfect addition to my collection! I’ve mentioned this before with Pocket POPs, one of the thing I like is that you can unscrew the keychain from the top of their head and use it as a mini, free-standing, POP!

Here’s a closer look with the keychain still attached.

And here’s a little shot of mini Venom next to my life-size Venom bust! Did I mention Venom is one of my favorites!?

Verdict: There’s never a dull moment with Marvel Collectors Corps! Honestly, they’ve really surprised me with how great each delivery has been. This is the kind of model that Loot Crate has been moving toward as well, all exclusive, and super quality, items! I’m excited for the next theme, Guardians of the Galaxy! I’m also really excited for their new themed boxes Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty, and next year’s DC box!

What did you think of Marvel Collectors Corps Villains box!

  1. So I live in the UK and have a continuous subscription to this yet the last one i recieved had Miles Morales and Lady Thor Funko Pops, the next listing I have is the Guardians of the Galaxy but not seen this up until now, is there a reason that anyone knows?

  2. Those busts are awesome! The Bishop one standing on a sentinel is my favorite.

  3. Question for subscribers: I ordered Oct and received but I also purchased past boxes. No word on shipping. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to mail past boxes?

    • For past boxes they take forever to ship. I ordered 1 of each of the previous boxes late in August (3 total). Took them 3 weeks to send the first box. The next box was send out about 5 weeks after the order date. And the last box I received a couple weeks ago.

      Ive send them multiple e-mails during this time about the status of the boxes and was like wtf is taking so ridiculously long. Apparently they only ship out boxes once or twice a month. So if you ordered a box and they just shipped out the day before, you might be waiting another month.

      The first few e-mails I sent were basically links to their faq on the website. They didn’t even take to time to actually read the e-mail I send to them. Finally on the 4th email I got an actual human response who fully answered all the questions I had asked. I actually got his name and stated that he needed a raise for being the only support person who actually cared.

  4. The boys love the Venom picture. I would be freaked out by it if it was in my home. My older son received Zombie Morbius.

    I thought that the shirt seemed larger too. My older son received a small and it fit him the way some of the mediums do from other geek boxes. I was surprised when he told me it was a small. I thought they sent us the wrong sized shirt.

  5. I changed my address a couple of months ago on the website, but they still mailed it to my old address and now it’s being sent back to them. I can’t even get ahold of anyone there. These guys are so frustrating to work with. ?

  6. Another good box.

    I cancelled after the 2nd box then I saw it was the spiderman and lady Thor so resubscribed and ordered that box as well.

    Don’t like the way that you don’t get both exclusive figures. Hope this ain’t the way forward.

    I love guardians of the galaxy and if its an exclusive Groot and star load and I get Groot I won’t be happy!

  7. I canceled this box because up to now the box design was a dead give away to what the exclusive pop item was and I really have no interest in venom.

    Butttt they charged me, refunded me, and then sent it to me anyway. Glad they did though! Best t-shirt design after avengers and OMG adorable Loki.

    I’m not into Morbious but my niece is so this will be a great gift (I got zombie Morbious)!

    Unexpected box blew me away!

  8. I loved the box … but would have loved something Dr. Doom related myself

    • Dr. Doom is lurking in the comicbook.

  9. Looks like a great box! Loki is Ah-Dorbz-able (sorry couldn’t help it)… I thini that is a really well done shirt. I like the outlibes on a heather grey background. The Venom Pop is awesome! (I seem to really like all of the keychain Pops and I unscrew the keychain part too).
    Yup… I got box envy… 🙂

    And that Venom bust is sick! What an awesome Venom collectible you have there.

  10. I LOVE your Bishop figurine standing on a Sentinal. VERY COOL!

  11. I thought it was great, I got the zombie variation. Did the shirt seem bigger than past shirts? I think it is much longer than previous boxes.

    • I just tried mine on, followed by some older shirts from them, and they seem to be the same. But – they also could’ve changed shirts for specific sizes only.

  12. we received the zombie version of morbius
