Box Review: Marvel Collector Corps – December 2015 – Guardians of the Galaxy

Collector Corps

This is the 5th box from Collector Corps with the theme Guardians of the Galaxy! The Marvel Collector Corps offers these boxes starting at $25 plus s/h.

Collector Corps

Each box comes with an exclusive badge and pin.

Collector Corps

Guardians of Infinity #1 Variant (Retail $4.99) – I haven’t started reading this series of Guardians yet, so I’m excited to give it a go. I usually wait and buy the graphic novels.

Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy Scarf (Retail N/A, tho starting at $18 on Ebay) – This awesome, reversible (image below with the opposite side) scarf was in place of a tshirt this month. Which I was really happy about, since I have so many Guardians tshirts already. I loved getting something so unique and wearable.

Collector Corps

Star-Lord POP! Mug (Retail $19.84) – This is a huge, wide-mouth mug good for cooling off hot drinks quickly. But unfortunately, the design is not great. Star-Lord is barely recognizable, unless you already know what you’re looking at. I’ll keep this with my Guardians collection for now, but I’m not crazy about it.

Collector Corps

POP! Bobblers Groot and Rocket (Retail $17.96) – These are actually ornaments. They stand on their own, but not well. By this point, I realized that there would be no POP! vinyl exclusive, so I was upset. These are basically the same design as the full-size POP, only smaller. Cute, but a disappointment nonetheless.

Summary: Being a HUGE fan of Guardians of the Galaxy, I was super excited for this box. They could have put in ANY character exclusive POP, and I would have been ecstatic. Instead, I was beyond devastated. There was SO MUCH potential, and Funko blew it. They made a lot of fans upset with this box, not including a (promised) exclusive POP! vinyl. Funko claims the little ornaments are the “exclusive POPs.” Um, nope. Epic fail. I love the scarf, but it in no way makes up for the fact that all of us Collector Corps subscribers were left wanting this month. They better not pull this again. The Deadpool box has a lot to make up for next month.
Also… I want a new Guardians POP!… excuse me while I go cry in the corner…
