Green Arrow Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s shirt focuses on Oliver Queen. I’m not into a lot of the TV superhero shows, but this was one that I liked for 2 seasons and eventually interest trailed off. That being said, I still really like this shirt a lot – and Arrow was kind of a defining moment for the DC TV Universe – so they had to include Oliver!
Jay Garrick POP – Value About $39 via POP Price Guide
They include a Jay Garrick POP this month. He’s showed up in season 2 of The Flash – and is widely know as the original Flash from the comics in 1940! Great idea to include this exclusive POP this month.
Here’s a closer look at the POP.
Supergirl Rock Candy Vinyl – Value About $10 via POP Price Guide
This is my first time receiving a Rock Candy vinyl from Funko. They remind me a bit of the QM vinyls we sometimes get in Loot Crate. This line is dedicated to female superheroes, and this month we get the TV version of Supergirl.
Here’s a look out of the box. I love the details on these vinyl figures – very cool! I’m surprised they don’t expand this line of vinyls, I think it could be really popular.
The Flash #123 – Value $1.99
The final item is The Flash #123 from 1961 – but with an exclusive variant cover. This issue is included because it’s the issue where Barry Allen meets Jay Garrick. It’s a smart issue to include based on the TV show and the POP this month – nicely done!
Verdict: This was a fun month of Legion of Collectors – but I knew the theme wasn’t for me going into it. I’m not a big superhero tv fan, even though I did recently catch up with Gotham, so I knew the items might be a miss for me solely based on my interests. I thought they were smart with their selections – and I love getting 2 vinyl figures – but I wish they had tossed in something from Gotham as well! With the CW expanding their DC lineup, I can easily see a dedicated box to Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow in the future.
