Back in June, I reviewed Marvel Collector Corps, powered by Funko. I loved it, but I did not realize they hadn’t added me for just June. So you can imagine my reaction when I came home yesterday and saw this on my porch:
So, you might ask, what’s in the box?If you subscribe and don’t have it yet, stop reading here. If not, do read on.
As always, you open it to find a pin (dibsed by my daughter) and a patch. The patch uses a “new rounded design.” I don’t know how I feel about that, but I’m anticipating adding this and future patches to a jacket I own.
Since the last box was largely claimed by my daughter, I told myself my son would get most of this box. At five (“an free quatahs!”), he’s a big Spider-Man fan. Of course, that does not include the very nicely designed Spider-Man bobble head POP! figure. Interestingly, he is Funko’s 10th Spidey. They wanted to do something a little different this time, so they posed him as leaping. This is a nice variation from your basic POP! design of “just standing there.”
The second atypical thing was a very cool Spider-Man hat. It won’t fit my son, so, you know, I’ll just keep that. And yes, I do intend to wear this collectible hat. I’m a monster, I know.
Thankfully, the final portion of the box is perfect for my son. A massive (for a box thing), Funko Fabrikation of Spidey. This thing is seriously huge. Gloriously so. I was surprised to not see a Spider-Man in the Fabrikations line, and now I know why–they were saving him for this. For which I thank them, because my son will go insane for this.
EDIT:Yes, he did. He really did. Also note that this is ages 14 and up, officially. Use your judgment. I wish I had a photo of his face when he got this.
On top of that, there’s also a collector cover of Amazing Spider-Man #16, which is the most recent issue as of this writing. Nice touch.
After two months of getting these, I have come to the conclusion that MCC is absolutely worth it. So far each box has had something for my entire family. I look forward to checking out the Dr. Strange themed October box (synergy with theatrical releases is an MCC standard). If you’ve been on the fence, I suggest you try ordering that one as a one-off.
Note: All photos have been taken by me, with the new Honor 8. What do you think?
More Important Note: This box and future boxes were provided by Funko for review purposes.
