Marvel Collector Corps - X-Men Review

What is Marvel Collector Corps?: Marvel Collector Corps is a bimonthly subscription box that is curated and sent out by Marvel itself. Each box will have a theme that coincides with a release that's upcoming. I stopped our Founder's Program (yearly) to only buy boxes that sound really good to one or both of us.

How Much is Marvel Collector Corps?: Marvel Collector Corps is $25/month (plus $6.95 shipping) or $150/year (plus $41.70 shipping). If you do the year-long subscription, you get a bonus gift at the end of your subscription each year.

Of course, the box had to be about Wolverine. Is there another X-Men character that's more popular?


Info card. I'm glad to see this being a continuing thing.


X-Men Comic Variant Cover ($4.99) - Still not a comic book person, I don't collect them and I prefer to read them on my iPad so this was a pass. 


Pin/Patch ($5.00 each) - Both are really cool, I love the pin and it looks nicely on my pin board. Patch, as always, goes to my husband.


Pop Ride (Wolverine's Motorcycle) ($25.00) - I wasn't expecting a Pop Ride, just a variant Pop. we don't have any Rides so this was something new for our collection. We didn't have any X-Men Pops either so it was new on both accounts. We both liked it and it looks nice in our collection


Rock Candy (Mystique) ($10.00) - Rock Candy is a different line of collectibles by Funko that aren't as popular so I was a little disappointed to see it in the box. Most people don't collect these so it's not only useless but worthless in the aftermarket. It's cool but not something I'd ever buy willingly.


Xavier University Shirt ($20.00) - Husband usually is the owner of these shirts but unfortunately he isn't a fan of baseball tees. Fortunately for me, I am and this is a nice oversized shirt. I'm not the biggest X-Men fan (I haven't seen all of the movies like he has) but I understand the reference!


Overall the box was good, not great. The value was $69.99 so more than the cost of the box. What you are really paying for, though, is the exclusivity of the items rather than the actual cost of the items but it's still a good box regardless.


The next box theme was Super Hero Showdowns. I love that they are including the next box's theme in the most recent box.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
