Blaugust 2015 Day 07
In September of last year I signed up for Loot Crate because I’d heard there was Firefly and Star Trek stuff in it. There was a nice little Malcolm Reynolds figure in it but not T-shirts and there rest of the stuff in the box was pretty disappointing to me. I canceled my subscription after that and gave up on the idea of subscription surprise boxes until July.
I ran across mention of Marvel’s Collector Corp on the Marvel subreddit and was curious enough to go check out the site. At $25 per month it’s basically twice what Loot Crate costs, but it’s all Marvel stuff and looked like it usually includes at least one Funko Pop figure. I decided to give it a shot and ordered the previous two boxes, Avengers and Ant-Man, since they were still in stock. Both boxes came in today and they’re both pretty nice. I’m excited to see what the upcoming Secret Wars box has in it.
First off, the boxes are pretty striking both inside and out with the bold black character art and the red comics printed on the inside. While each box contains a patch and pin that was pretty forgettable, the big stuff inside is really nice. The Avengers box included a Hulkbuster figure, small Ultron figure, a nice t-shirt, and an Avengers comic.
Here’s a shot of Agent Coulson with the Hulkbuster figure to give you an idea of the size of this thing.
The Ant-Man box is just as good including a regular Funko Pop figure and two of the small mystery boxes, plus a t-shirt and comic. I love the tiny bobblehead that came with the regular Funko one. I’m super happy with both boxes, I can’t wait to see what’s coming in the next one.
