It’s time to review of Marvel Collector Corps, and this month we’re talking about Deadpool! Since he is a part of the Marvel universe it was only a matter of time until Marvel Collector Corps announced the release of a Deadpool themed box! You are just in time for more Deadpool goodness. If you’ve seen this post then you already know just how much I love Mr. Wilson and if you haven’t had the time to check out my previous post I apologize in advance for my mild Deadpool obsession.
What is Marvel Collector Corps?
If you haven’t had the chance to check out Collectors Corps yet, here’s a little info: it is a subscription box that comes out bi-monthly, focusing solely on Marvel and Funko products. For as little as $25 + shipping and handling this box can be yours too! In the past they’ve done boxes for the latest incarnation of Thor aka (spoilers, highlight to read) the amazing Dr. Jane Foster, Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron. A not-so-thorough search on their website has alerted me to the fact that you can still purchase boxes from previous months should you see something you absolutely need to have.
What’s Inside the Deadpool Marvel Collector Corps Box?
Onward! The first thing you come across when you open up the box is an iron on patch and an enamel pin. Easily applied and a nice little add on for folks looking to jazz up a bag or jacket. An awesome thing that Marvel Collector Corps does each month is make sure that everything down to the boxes themselves fit the theme. The more you open up the box, the more you encounter little comic strips featuring Deadpool and friends like Bob; yes, Hydra Bob. No relation at all to the Bob that showed up in the movie (can you hear my sarcasm as I type this?).
The next thing to make an appearance was this lovely t-shirt. This month you had the chance to get one of four color variants for DP, all based off of different groups he has found himself in through the ages. Collector Corps t-shirts are nice and soft, however the sizing is a little hit or miss. I normally order a men’s medium and this fit more like a small which was not what I wanted at all. I even double checked my inovice to make sure that I ordered the right size. Sadly, this is something I’ve noticed in more than one box. This little snafu can be fixed by ordering a size up, so not all is lost.
Next up to make an appearance was this comic featuring Deadpool of course, but in his lil Funko form. Isn’t it the cutest?
On to my favorite things! Funkos! There were three different type of Funko products thrown into this month’s box, you got a Pop, Dorbz and a Mopeez. The Pop was of Deadpool leaping (which happened a lot in the movie), the Dorbz features DP with a cowboy hat (?) and his lil unicorn plushie (which also made a few appearances in the movie); and last but not least is the fluffiest little plushie of the one and only Deadpool himself in his inverted uniform.
As far as price goes you’ve definitely made all your money back by the time you reach the bottom of the box. Say the pin and patch only came out to $10 together, and a t-shirt is normally $15-20, a comic is $4, pop’ vinylss are on average $11, a Dorbz figure usually comes in at $8 and Mopeez are about $8 as well. Adding everything together your box comes in at a value of at least $55. At the end of the day you walk away with twice as much, I’d call that a win.
Let me know what you think of last month’s box and whether or not you’ll be subscribing for the up and coming Civil War box, set to be released in April. Until next time!
