Good To Know: These are all exclusive items!
I loved the opened box lid this month!
Here are this month’s patch and pin. I like that they didn’t go with the main characters for these smaller items – instead, we get Crossbones and Black Panther!
Civil War Shirt – Value $10?
I’m liking the design of the exclusive shirt this month. I wonder if we’ll ever get a non-POP shirt in this box similar to the most recent Smuggler’s Bounty shirt? I’d be very interested in that!
Captain America/Iron Man 2-Pack – Value $30+?
These are yet to appear on POP Price Guide, so this is just a guess and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re valued even higher than this. This is the type of item I subscribe for – how cool is this set?
Excellent choice for the main item in this month’s box!
Tony Stark Dorbz – Value $15+?
Again, not available yet on the price guide, but these exclusive Dorbz have been high in value too. I really like this Dorbz – even Liz commented on how much it looks like RDJ.
Here’s a closer look at the details.
Black Panther #1 – Value $4.99
This is the first issue from the latest Black Panther run. It’s getting good reviews, so I’m excited to give it a go! This is a special variant cover for Collector Corps as well!
Civil War Lanyard – Value $1-2?
The final item is a lanyard. You could use this if you’re looking to save your theater ticket from opening day!
Here’s a better glance at some of the details.
Verdict: I’ve loved every delivery from Collector Corps so far. I’m a POP collector, so these boxes are really up there in value for me. Typically, the price of the POP and/or Dorbz figure are close to cover the cost of the box – which is great, because the smaller items and shirt are usually pretty fun too.
Here’s my MAJOR issue with Collector Corps (and Smuggler’s Bounty/Legion of Collectors) – the customer care as practically non-existent! I bought an annual subscription when this first launched. Since then, my billing address and credit card had changed. With over 2 weeks left until shipment of this box, I received an email to update my information because my card declined. In my account, everything was locked and could no longer be changed – so naturally it was time to email customer care. Well, I have yet to even get a response to my email that is about a month old now, and because of that I had to re-subscribe and I lost my Founder’s status. Hopefully, this is something that they address in the near future as they are now a BIG company with 3 subscriptions – and because of that, it’s unacceptable to not have timely customer care at this point.
