April 2015 "Avengers" Marvel Collector Corps Review
I’m a huge Marvel fan, so I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a Collector Corps box for a while. I had the opportunity to pick one up at Comikaze and I chose to go with their Avengers box, which originally came out this past April. Even after having been out for a few months, the box holds up its value due to the fact that the items contained inside are all exclusives. That being the case, the chances of having acquired any of the products previously was nil, and I was excited to see what I’d get.
When you first open the box, you’re greeted by a pin and patch. These accessories are themed after the box’s topic for the month and are great collectibles for long-term subscribers. Due to their collectible nature, I don’t think many people will want to sell them, but I estimate their value at $5 for the set based on the prices I saw on Ebay. This box is a bit awkward to value because of the exclusive nature of the products, but I’m attempting to do so anyway because that’s the normal structure of my unboxings.
I absolutely LOVE the second item that came in the box, a Funko POP figure of the Hulkbuster suit from Age of Ultron. Not only does the figure look amazing, but it’s a bobblehead! This figure alone helped the box win me over, and I’m not the only one. These figures are going for $40 or more on Ebay, so other people are appreciating their value too. I’ll be keeping mine, of course! Make sure to watch the video to see the bobble in action.
The third item was an Ultron Dorbz. I’m a fan of the Dorbz series because I like cute things, so I was happy with this item. I’ll admit, though, that when I unboxed this, I was still thinking about the awesome Hulkbuster POP I’d just opened! Compared to the Hulkbuster figure, this also-exclusive Dorbz figurine is selling for $5 on average. Regardless, it’s a fun figurine and great for display.
The fourth item in the box was an Avengers-themed t-shirt centered around the Age of Ultron movie. I suppose you could argue the box is a bit outdated due to the fact that the movie has since premiered, but I still think it’s a cool shirt. The ombre effect combined with the vintage design looks cool. I noticed while looking at other reviews that there are also seem to be multiple variants of the shirt, which is cool. So far I’ve spotted a green one (Hulk), a blue one (Captain America - the one I received), another blue one (Thor) and a red one (Ironman.) I think those are the only four, but let me know if I missed any. My point is that this is a nice-looking shirt that can be worn even though the movie has passed; the vintage effect helps make this option more viable. I estimate the value at $10.
The fifth and final item in the box was an Avengers comic book. The issue is the Guardians of the Galaxy Team-up #1 with an exclusive variant cover. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but it looks like a fun value. Per the cover price, the value is $4.
Overall, I really enjoyed the “Avengers” iteration of the Marvel Collector Corps box. The Hulkbuster figure stood out as the best item and that figure alone justified the box’s cost in my eyes. The box is usually $25 plus shipping per month, and the Hulkbuster figure alone is valued at more than $40. All of the other items complemented the Hulkbuster figure and provided their own inherent value. The coolest feature of this box is that all of the items are exclusives, so you know that you’re getting new, specially-curated items every month. I’m looking forward to seeing what this box delivers in the future.
