Like the other Funko boxes, the reveal opens with your themed patch and pin.
This month’s patch and pin feature Wonder Woman and Superman!
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.
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!
Here is the POP out of the box.
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.
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?
