If you’re like me, you already subscribe to a ‘box’ service. You know the ones? You open up a LootCrate, My Geeky Goodies, NerdBlock; and you unlock a bunch of surprises to feast your eyes on. The collectibles vary each month, but they are always geekly depending on if you’re into comics, video games, television, and more. You may have thought you were done, but you couldn’t be more wrong!
Marvel and Funko are now teaming up for the Marvel Collector Corps Subscription Service and when it launches in April, you’re first gift is going to be an exclusive 6” Iron Man Hulkbuster Pop! vinyl collectible only available through Marvel Collector Corps. The box contents also include a T-shirt featuring one of four exclusive designs, an additional stylized vinyl collectible and two premium accessories. The box represents over $50 of value.
You have the option of $25 dollars a Month plus tax and shipping, which equals to about $29 bucks a month; or a yearly option which equals to around $192 a year and you receive an additional mystery gift. Aside from being slightly more expensive than the other subscription services, the boxes will only be coming 6 times a year. I’ll be honest with you, I’m going for it. Yes, I get less stuff than a LootCrate, but I know that the products offered by Marvel/Disney are going to be of the highest quality. I will not be surprised if Marvel pulls all products from the other subscription services and we see a Disney Films or Star Wars Boxes in the near future.
Here is the Official Press Release:
