Marvel has teamed up with the folks at Funko to create their very own monthly subscription service, Collector Corps. Check it out here.
I am honestly very excited about this, as there should be no surprise based on my own Marvel fanhood (seriously I should just let Marvel have a direct withdrawal from my account), but the allure of a Funko in every box makes it that much better. My own collection of Funkos now stands at over 30 figures which is much less than some, but still a sizable grouping of Funkos.
The initial box scheduled to ship in April is listed as the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” box. It will include a special 6″ version of Iron Man in the hulkbuster suit. This alone is enough to get me off the fence and go ahead and purchase, but it will also to include a t-shirt and “two premium accessories” (whatever that means).
The box itself is a little more than Loot Crate and Nerd Block, but the allure of a Funko guaranteed in every Collector Corps box is enough for me to pay $25 a month instead of the standard $20. However, if you feel like being a high roller, you can sign up for the Founder’s Program ($150) which includes a six month subscription plus a special Founder’s figure on the one year anniversary.
Check out April’s special Funko below and let us know in the comments what you think of the announcement.
