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 included a bunch of new product lines!

It comes with an information card that details the items in the box.

And on the reverse side, you’ll see the next theme! I’m thinking we all will be loving Hulk again after Ragnarok – so I’ll be ready for the Hulk theme!

Pin – Value $5?

A little bit ago, Funko explained that they were going to try a few new product lines in these boxes as a response to customer survey feedback. So, with that in mind there was only a pin, and no patch, this month. But, the Hela pin is looking awesome!

Thor (With Helmet) POP – Value $20-25?

So far, the Thor POP sculpts I’ve seen from the Ragnarok lines all him with without his battle helmet – showing off his (gasp) short hair!

This sculpt is just awesome. The battle shield and helmet make this my favorite POP of the line, currently. I cannot wait to see this movie!

Loki POP – Value $20-25

Like Thor, the current line of Ragnarok Loki POPs all have him with his helmet- and let’s be honest, who has a better helmet than Loki?

My Loki Dorbz figure is one of my favorites solely for the great helmet sculpt – so this one is certainly jumping up the list of my favorite POPs, and is easily my favorite Loki!

Ok – let’s jump into their new products.

Ragnarok Magnet Set – Value $5-10?

You’ll get a set of 4 magnets featuring Loki, Hulk, Thor, and Hela. These are the size of a 50 cent piece.

For me, this is an improvement over the patch – I really like the way the patches look, but I’ve never had a great use for them – these will go right onto the fridge!

Hulk Beanie – Value $10-15?

Instead of a shirt this month, you’ll get a beanie so you can wait in line for opening night in comfort.

I’m alright with this as an alternative to a shirt every once in a while, and in the right season. It’s got that vinyl like patch that feels appropriate to a vinyl toy company.

Ragnarok Playing Cards – Value $5-10?

You’ll get a standard deck of cards that feature The Hulk and Thor. These are alright, but I wish they had done something with the faces of the cards.

Ragnarok Fidget Spinner – Value $5-10?

Funko gets into the fidget spinner craze with an exclusive Ragnarok spinner.

It features 6 different POP’d characters on both sides.

Verdict: I’m totally fine with Funko experimenting with new items – but I’m also glad they did it while maintaining double POPs! I love this month’s POP selection – the remaining items I’m still on-the-fence about, but when my value is all with the POPs, I’m still a happy customer.

What did you think of the October 2017 Thor: Ragnarok themed Collector Corps box?

  1. I was actually a bit disappointed to not get a patch. I’ve been collecting them and putting them on a messenger bag and with Hela being my favorite Marvel lady, I was super excited for this one.

  2. Im so excited for this movie. Thor is my favorite avenger. I ordered this crate as a gift for my son, but now I want my own.

  3. I loved this box. The Pops were awesome (I’m so glad they didn’t send another Dorbz) and the beanie is one of my favorite sub box items yet. The playing cards are the only thing I wasn’t thrilled about, but I can always gift them to my nephew. I’m having a good time dropping the fidget spinner ☺️, and the magnets are cute and useful. And I agree about the patches. They do look awesome, but I don’t really know what to do with them either. I’m looking forward to what they do next time.
