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‘. This month has a fantastic old school vibe!

You’ll get an information card that shows off every item. It also talks a lot about production details and choices made while curating this theme.

Patch + Pin – Value $5-10?

Every box opens up to an exclusive patch and pin set. This month features Cap, it plays off a lot of his early-appearance poses. The pin features Nick Fury from his first appearance in ‘Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos’ in 1963!

The Incredible Hulk Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features a POP version of Bruce Banner and the Hulk!

They pulled this straight from the cover of The Incredible Hulk #1! it’s a fun way to tie in with first appearances.

Iron Man (Tales of Suspense #39) POP – Value $20-25?

This month didn’t pull the punches and sent two brand new POPs! The first features the very first look at Iron Man!

I love that they added the cover of the issue on the back of the box. I have about 5-6 variations of Iron Man POPs, this one will fit perfectly with the entire crew.

Vision (Avengers #57) POP – Value $20-25

The second POP finally gives us Vision in the classic green and yellow!

Once again, they include the cover of Avengers #57 on the back – a great touch! I also love the cape sculpt!

Verdict: For me, two POPs is an automatic home run, pretty much all the time! I’d actually love for them to do more ‘First Appearance’ boxes like this – even a second one for Avnegers like Hawkeye! If you’re a POP fanatic, you simply have to subscribe to these to keep your collection up to date – and I have not regretted in yet.

What did you think of the August 2017 First Appearance Avengers themed Collector Corps box?

  1. I love everything in this box.

  2. Is there a mistake at the start of the review? It says the theme is Spiderman Homecoming…but that doesn’t seem to track.

    • Sorry about that – sometimes I mess things up when I copy bits over. Updated.

  3. OMG that shirt is the sh*t!!

  4. Vote for Hawkeye as well!!!
    I desperately need more of his merc!

  5. I like the idea of the box, but I really only liked the shirt. The pops were both quickly made and not that original IMO. No one likes Vision and the iron man pop has been done before.

    • I was totally in love with the shirt. I had the hubby put it on immediately…lol

      • I’ve worn it a few times but my 3 year old is so confused why hulk is grey.
