|First Marvel Collector Corps Mystery Box|
Marvel and Funko have teamed up to produce the ultimate mystery box every other month, this is big news, this is big companies.... and this is one box that I won't be continuing with when my subscription finishes!!......
Yeah, I know, MARVEL, FUNKO, geek boxes - this ticks all the right boxes except one..... at £40 a POP (see what I did there....) this is way too rich for my blood!!
Let's rewind shall we?
I've been reviewing various mystery boxes over the year on the hunt for my perfect one (for my family which may not suit all) it's been, and continues to be fun and I did think that the arrival of the Marvel Collectors Corp box would put an end to my search.........
This is a new box. The first box was sent out in April, the Funko Pop was not a surprise as the Hulkbuster had been plastered all over Collectors Corp's Facebook page, but what else came in the box, now that was the surprise.
|I almost have as much fun creating these as opening the boxes ;)|
The box itself is pretty cool, very impressive and as I had to pick mine up from the post office I was in smug mode coming home!
|New Marvel Collector Corps April Box|
|Rather impressive inside too!|
|Hulkbuster - Exclusive to Marvel Collector corps and going for a song on eBay!|
|Collector Corps Badges|
|Collector Corps April T-Shirt|
|Ultron Dorbz Exclusive|
So what do you think? Do you think this box is worth £40? I'm not convinced of it myself, saying that, the Hulkbuster IS going for silly money on eBay....
|6 bids already and doesn't finish for 2 more days!!! (THIS IS NOT MINE!!)|
The cost of the box is $25
Shipping to the UK is $18
Convert that to GBP = £28 (approximately)
Customs and Royal Mail charges = £11.40
and THAT is how the £40 price tag is calculated
Too rich for my blood and for that I will give it its own special mention but will not be rating it in my top geeky boxes. It is, at the end of the day, in a league of its own!
I'm sure there are going to be die-hard fans who totally disagree with me - but this is my blog and my opinion!
I'll leave you with my 3 years old doing his first unboxing on YouTube - enjoy
