Good To Know: These are all exclusive items!
Collector Corps is a bi-monthly subscription for Funko fanatics. Every delivery is themed in some way – some are themed after comic events/movies, like ‘Civil War‘, or a category of characters, like ‘Women of Power‘, as well as specific characters like ‘Ant-Man‘ and ‘Deadpool‘.
Each month now comes with a large information sheet. With this, you can find our additional details about each item in the box – including concept art – I’m loving this new addition!
The first items you’ll find in your box are your themed collector patch and pin. This month, both are themed around the classic Spider-Man.
Spider-Man POP – Value $25 on POP Price Guide
This month contains an exclusive POP (YAY!). In my opinion, I think it’s essential for them to include a POP in every box – no POP, no party!
This month’s character? It’s our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, of course!
Here he is, mid-jump, ready to web sling!
I also wanted to give a closer look – I think the paint jobs have been getting better for Funko over the past few months – Spider-Man looks near perfect.
Spider-Man Fabrikation – Value $11 on POP Price Guide
I’m not sure if I’m in the minority, but I really like Fabrikations. While I’m not a fan of their other plush lines – I like how this is essentially an oversized POP.
The legs/feet are also filled with heavier beads, making it easier to stand them up for display. This is also the first exclusive Fabrikation from Collector Corps – more, please!
Spider-Man POP Top
The typically include one wearable each month, too. Sometimes it has POP’d characters on the graphic, and others have just been exclusive graphics of the actual comic character. Lately, they’ve been pushing their new POP Top hat line pretty hard.
Nothing too special for the underside of the brim this time – just POP and Marvel logos.
You’ll find the Spider-Man logo on the back as well. Expect to always receive a snapback hat in these boxes, they are one-size-fits-all, after all.
The Amazing Spider-Man #16 – Value $3.99 + Exclusive Variant Cover
The final item is the latest issues from the on-going Amazing Spider-Man run. This is a great run, I definitely recommend it to any Spidey fans looking to break into comics. I also highly recommend The Superior Spider-Man run – I won’t spoil anything, but it’s a great concept and a fun series! I wish it was still going!
Verdict: I love these boxes for the POPs, and this month delivered a great POP and Fabrikation! Those two items alone make this box a win for me. I’m still not sure about POP Tops, though. I’m a hat person myself, but I’m willing to bet that more people don’t wear hats – making the inclusion of a shirt much more valuable to more people – so I’m curious to see where that goes. I had a feeling I’d enjoy this month, because Spider-Man, and I was happy to be correct.
