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 comes with a large information sheet. With this, you can find our additional details about each item in the box – including concept art.
The first items you’ll find in your box are your themed collector patch and pin. The patch features Iron Man vs. Ultron, while the pin features Hulk and Red Hulk!
Spider-Man vs Green Goblin Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s exclusive shirt features a POP battle between Spidey and Green Goblin. I like that the graphic is like a comic book cover – even though I prefer non-POP shirts, I still like this one a lot.
Bullseye/Daredevil POP 2-Pack – Value $30+?
This month features a POP 2-Pack which is very appropriate for a showdown box!
This is similar to the Civil War 2-Pack we got in April 2016 – but I’m loving the weaponry on both POPs for this exclusive set.
I love this set – while it was never my first thought for the ‘Superhero Showdown’ 2-Pack – it turns out that it’s just awesome. I believe that this is the first POP appearance for Bullseye as well.
Captain America and Red Skull Pint Size Heroes – Value $5-10 each
This was my first-ever pint size hero figure – so I’m happy to get a look at them.
These vinyl figures are tiny! Each figure is only 1.5″ tall – and I can see why these might be highly collectible.
Normally, Pint Size Heroes are all blind bag as well. Cap and Red Skull is such a good Superhero Showdown – so these were a great choice!
Inhumans vs X-Men #1 – Value $5.99 + Exclusive Variant Cover
The final item is a variant cover comic – which is typical for these boxes. I think Wolverine vs Sabretooth might have been my choice for the POP set, but it’s nice to see them represented on this cover. This is a longer issue, too – so it’s like getting two issues this month!
Verdict: I think a lot of people will be happy with this box – no mugs or hats – which seem to be really divisive. Overall, I’m loving every vinyl figure in this box – so everything else is just a bonus for me!
