Collector Corps is the official Marvel subscription box by Funko. Unlike other subscription boxes, this one is only sent every two months. This box has been around for awhile, but I finally decided to try it out after having a great experience with the Smuggler's Bounty subscription box, also by Funko! You can check out that unboxing here!
Right off the bat, I had a little bit of trouble with Collector Corps. Boxes begin shipping out on the 15th of the month and I still hadn't received any shipping information by the 20th of February. In fact, my order still said processing. I contacted support and got a couple of general, pre-written replies, which was annoying. My order finally switched to "complete" on the 22nd and I got a tracking number, although by the 25th it still said "pre-shipment" on the tracking.
My box did eventually show up though, so I actually DO have something to share with you! As you can see, the theme for February was Deadpool! I had only seen the movie a couple days before the box arrived, so I was really excited to open it!
The first thing I saw when I opened my Deadpool box were the patch and pin that come in every Funko subscription box. Just like when I got my Smuggler's Bounty box, I wasn't sure what I would do with them... I foresee a large pile of patches in my future. One thing I did notice was that these were much more hastily thrown in than those in my last box, outside of their borders, which isn't a huge deal, but it was noticeable.
The next thing in the box after flipping up the top was a Deadpool comic, the first in what is apparently going to be the official Collector Corps "World's Greatest Comic Magazine." I haven't actually taken this out of the plastic yet, but I do think it's a really fun thing to include in the box, especially if these are going to come in future boxes and all tie together!
Next was this month's t-shirt! This one was a super fun Deadpool shirt that I've already worn a few times and gotten a couple compliments on! This Deadpool on the shirt came in a few colors - red, yellow, gray, and black that I know of. I also ordered this month's shirt in an x-small, which worked out a little better.
Underneath the shirt was probably my favorite part! Not only was there an exclusive Collector Corps Deadpool Funko Pop! There was also a Funko Dorbz, the first in what I assume will be my new collection. Both of these were totally adorable and are currently being displayed proudly on my shelf. There was also a Funko Mopeez Deadpool plush that matched the shirt!
I really, REALLY enjoyed the contents of my first Collector Corps box and definitely think it was worth the price ($25+S/H)! I actually might like this one a little more than January's Smuggler's Bounty box, to be honest. I felt like the items were useful and I love the exclusivity of the collector's items!
I highly recommend the Collector Corps subscription box if you're a Marvel fan! Despite the shipping issues, I have already signed up for the April box and have faith that it will be a smoother experience next time! The theme will be Captain America: Civil War and I am probably going to go crazy from waiting! You can check it out and sign up for the April box here!
