Marvel Collector’s Corps: Secret Wars Unboxing

DSC03479

Although this is the third Marvel Collector’s Corps box that Marvel and Funko have put out, it’s the first one that I am doing an unboxing for.  Back in July it was announced that this month’s theme was going to be Secret Wars.  I’ve been knee deep reading comics for Marvel’s Secret Wars event, so a whole box dedicated to Secret Wars is right in my wheel house.

First lets get a rundown of all the items in the box:

  • Marvel Collector’s Corps Secret Wars Pin
  • Marvel Collector’s Corps Secret Wars Patch
  • Secret Wars Funko Pop Tee
  • Exclusive Marvel Collector’s Corps Secret Wars Issue 1 Variant Cover
  • Ultimate (Miles Morales) Spider-man Exclusive Funko Pop Bobble Head
  • Lady Thor Exclusive Funko Pop Bobble Head

First there is the Collector’s Corps Pin and Patch which look like they will be coming with every shipment.

This is only the third Collectors Corps box to be released but the first to have more than one exclusive Pop Vinyl figure.  Based on the art on the box (which was revealed ahead of time) I had guessed correctly that one of the figures would be Lady Thor and was very pleasantly surprised to find not only Lady Thor but Ultimate Spider-man too.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that they had altered the box to put a divider in order to prevent the figures from jostling around too much during shipping.  This is a great improvement as the box for my Ant-Man figure from July got crushed during delivery.

Next is the T-shirt which is my favorite T-shirt to date.  It is a Funko Pop Tees brand shirt with Captain America, Thor, Ultimate Spider-man, and War Machine.  The Ant-Man shipment also had a Funko Pop Tees shirt so hopefully this is the type of shirt we will get going forward.

Last, and certainly not least is a exclusive Secret Wars Issue 1 Variant Cover with the Pop Thor on the front.  It came in a poly bag with board so you don’t have to worry about it getting messed up during shipping.  I’m not super worried about keeping it for resale so I’ll probably take it out of the bag but haven’t done so yet.

I’ve been receiving the Marvel Collector’s Corps boxes since they first started back in May just to get the Exclusive Hulkbuster Pop Figure.  I kept it through the July box to see what the Ant-Man themed box would have and was a little underwhelmed when I got it.  If this August box had been something other then Secret Wars I probably would have canceled.  However, this has been my favorite box in the series by far and has got me much more excited about the series on the whole.  On the website it says the boxes cost 25 dollars but after shipping and taxes it comes out to around 35 dollars, which is a lot.  It does help that they only come out every other month but it’s still a high price for possibly only a single exclusive Funko Pop Figure.  If every box is as good as this box I don’t see me canceling my subscription anytime soon!

My Top 5 Funko Pop Vinyl Wishlist

My name is Jason and I’m an addict.  My addiction is Funk POP Vinyls.  It started off innocent enough with just a Batman figure but soon blew up to over 50 figures.  Funko has put out a massive collection of these figures across multiple series of TV, Comics, Books, Movies, and Video Games.  These days the series they haven’t created figures for is almost smaller than the list of series they have created figures for.  However, there are few things they haven’t made into figures that are still on my wish list.

5) Britney Spears

Who better to make a series of Pop Vinyls then the undisputed Queen of Pop?  I understand that I may be alone as not every one shares my obsession with Britney, but hear me out.  They have made quite a few musician Pop Vinyls in the past and even did an entire series of Pop Vinyls just on Michael Jackson.

Who then also has a series of incredibly iconic outfits that are begging to be turned into cute pop vinyl form? Britney Spears.  I went ahead and pulled some pictures of some of her most iconic looks that would make a great series.

4) Death Note

Death Note is easily my favorite anime and has just the right size cast where it wouldn’t take more than 4 figures to cover the main cast.  They could easily just do Light, L, Ryuk, and Misa and call it a day.  The characters are already so stylized in their animation that they would look amazing in the pop vinyl form.

3) Archer

Archer

Out of everything on this list Archer seems like the biggest no brainer to me.  It has a huge cast to work with and is beloved by the same people who already love Pop Vinyls.  In fact I would not be surprised at all if Funko had an Archer series announcement by the end of the year.  I mean come on! Just think of how great a Pam with a dolphin puppet, Krieger’s Anime Hologram wife, or Babou the Ocelot would be!

2) Studio Ghibli

HOW ARE THESE NOT ALREADY OUT!  Studio Ghibli is one of the most obvious choices for the Pop Vinyl treatment out there.  There dozens of extremely iconic and popular figures they could pull from that fans will throw money at.  Just a Totoro alone would fly off the shelves and with out expensive most Ghibli merchandise is it would be a steal at Funko’s 10 dollar price point.  They would have a big selection of characters to chose from and my top five characters I would like out of this series would be a Kiki and Gigi, Totoro, Nausicaa, and Howl and Calcifer.

1) Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy Full cast

This is the big one.  They would probably have to just pick a couple of the more popular games but I would really like to see a collection of Final Fantasy figures that cover the entire series.  If they did anything I would assume they would start with Final Fantasy VII which would make the most sense.  Final Fantasy VII is one of, if not my favorite game in the series so if Funko only made figures from it I would be still be super happy.  But I am also a huge fan of Final Fantasy VIII and would really like a Squall figure.  My top five Final Fantasy Characters I’d like to see would be Squall, Cloud, Aeris, Terra, and Lightning.

That’s my top five list, what would you like to see get the Funko Pop Vinyl treatment?
