Unboxing October's Marvel Collector Corps: Villains

Marvel Collector Corps spotlights the villains of the Marvel Universe in October's box. Being the month of October, it seems like the perfect time to do it. For those that don't know, the Marvel Collector Corps subscription service focuses on a theme for each box they release. Past boxes have been Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and Secret Wars. Each box comes with exclusive collectibles, including an iron-on patch, a pin, T-Shirt, a Funko POP! figure, a variant cover comic, and one or two other collectibles which has been different with each box. All for roughly $31.00 (shipping included).

This month's box included all of the regular items and added a Dorbz figure and a mini POP! keychain.The Dorbz figure was Loki and the keychain, which was my favorite item, was Venom. Next were the pin and patch, those featured Green Goblin and Red Skull and both were pretty awesome. The variant comic was for Invincible Iron Man #1. When it came to the T-Shirt, I loved it! The only problem was, Funko shirts tend to run on the bigger side, so the large that I ordered fits more like an X-large. Normally, I would just change my order to a medium, but different companies have made the shirts in their boxes. Unfortunately, this  means at one point I'll end up with a medium that will be too tight.

Finally, the item most of us order the box for, came the POP! figure. A lot of ire on social media has been made over this figure. It's mostly due to the fact that for one, people are unfamiliar with the character. The other reason is that we've been totally spoiled by Funko/Marvel. The first box shipped with a hefty 6" Hulkbuster POP!, while the second came with an Unmasked Ant-Man, and the last box gave us two POP! figures in Miles Morales' Spider-Man and Jane Thor. This box's exclusive POP! was Morbius the Living Vampire, which came in one of two versions- regular and zombie. I received the regular version of the character and personally, I totally dug it.

Inside this month's MCC box:

- Funko Dorbz Loki
- Funko POP! Venom Keychain
- Red Skull iron-on patch
- Green Goblin pin
- Villains T-Shirt
- Invincible Iron Man #1 variant comic
- Morbius Funko POP! Figure

Worth every penny.
