Batman vs. Superman Shirt – Value $10?

This shirt immediately reminded me of the first Collectors Corps shirt – which I loved! I love the style of this shirt – it reminds me of a poster for two Luchadores battling.

Legion of Collectors Subscription Box Review March 2016 - Armored Batman POP

Armored Batman POP – Value $40 on POP Price Guide

This exclusive POP is highly coveted on POP Price Guide and I’m loving it! Batman is armored up to fight Superman! I’m tentatively excited for the movie, and I do love that I’m getting so many flashbacks to Frank Miller’s classic, The Dark Knight Returns. Fingers crossed!

Legion of Collectors Subscription Box Review March 2016 - Dorbz

Superman/Aquaman Dorbz – Value $20-30?

Next up are two exclusive Dorbz featuring Aquaman and Superman! The set is exclusive, and also, the green and blue variants are also exclusive. You can take a look at the normal Dorbz here. Honestly, I don’t particularly like the green and blue shades on the characters – is this in reference to anything?

Here’s a closeup of the Dorbz. They have some weight to them! Overall – I like them, just not the color.

Legion of Collectors Subscription Box Review March 2016 - Batman:Superman Comic

Batman/Superman #5 – Value $2.99

This is an exclusive variant cover, but I have yet to find a value for it. I’ve thought about starting this run for a while, and this might be the push over the edge. Batman is definitely my favorite superhero in comic form. I’m a big fan of Batman Eternal, Batman & Robin Eternal, DKIII, and Scott Snyder’s current Batman run. There are so many more to read too – I could go one for a while without having finished all that I want to read! DC needs an Unlimited service like Marvel!

Verdict: I love all three of my Funko subscriptions and I look forward to them each delivery! This was a good opening box for Legion of Collectors, and in my experience, they’ve only gotten better over time. But, to this day, you can’t beat the first Collector Corps POP – the 6-inch Hulkbuster! One thing to note about these subscriptions is about customer service. I’ve seen a lot of comments that they take months, or simply don’t respond to emails. I’ve had this experience as well – and while the products are fantastic, that kind of service is a major deterrent to new, and existing, subscribers – I hope they can get this solved before they do any other new lines!

What do you think of the first-ever Legion of Collectors?

  1. The latest Suicide Squad box was terrible. They picked what would probably be the worst selling Pop in the retail market as the “exclusive”, the “extras” packaging had separated from their backcards, and the tee shirt was mediocre at best. Definitely a disappointment on this one. D-

  2. I wonder if you will be able to buy previous boxes. They did that with Marvel box. Has anyone tried? I’d have loved the pop and the comic but those dorbz are awful. And dorbz cuteness normal always makes me want.

    • I was able to buy this box right after I signed up a couple of days ago, so you should be able to unless they sell out.

  3. The green superman variant has been done in a Walmart exclusive 2 pack as well as a Walmart exclusive mystery mini. The blue aquaman pop was also originally done as a Hot Topic exclusive. The green is supposed to be reminiscent of kryptonite. Overall we enjoyed this box, but the shirt runs big and they didn’t seem to do any variant shirt colors this go around.

  4. I didn’t subscribe to this box because I’m not a big DC fan, but I wish I had. Everything in it was exceptional! I’m also grateful for your last comment. I thought it was only me having issues with their customer service. I dropped Marvel CC solely for that reason. You’d think with having such big companies behind them they’d improve by now, but it doesn’t seem like they’re trying.

  5. I really liked this inaugural DC box! My only complaint is the color of the Dorbz. They’d lead you to believe that they glow in the dark, but they do not. I love that they are exclusive, but would have preferred the more “realistic” ones. I’m also thrown off by the variant comic. It seems odd to me that they’d throw in an issue from the middle of the run, why not do a variant cover for the first issue to potentially get me hooked on the series. Overall though, I was very pleased. The Pop is fantastic, and the shirt might be my favorite funko subscription shirt yet!

    • I’m with you on all accounts. I assumed those Dorbz were glow in the dark when I opened the box. I still can’t figure out why they are the colors that they are.

      • Aqua for Aquaman and Kryptonite Green for Superman
