Collector Corps Deadpool Unboxing

Happy Thursday, fellow book bloggers!! The weekend is sooooo close! Just hang in there a little bit longer! Today, I am here to share with you my very first Collector Corps subscription box unboxing.

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!
