Unboxing June's Marvel Collector Corps: Spider-Man: Homecoming

With Spidey swinging into theaters with his first official MCU film, Marvel Collector Corps' theme for June was "Spider-Man: Homecoming." I'm a HUGE Spider-Man fan, so ordering this box was a no-brainer. That being said, my expectations for this one were pretty high. Unfortunately, this box didn't deliver for me. It's not that the quality was lacking, more the fact that what was included in the box was less than amazing (yeah, I went there).

First up in the box were the patch and pin. These were actually pretty awesome. The pin features Spidey's web shooter hologram and the patch of The Vulture was really well done. Both of them found a place on my backpack.

Next up was Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man #1. This issue, like all MCC comics, comes with an alternate POP!-inspired variant cover. This one featured Spider-Man and Vulture.

The T-shirt included was a "Midtown School of Science and Technology" logo tee. While I like the tee as a Spider-Man fan, this one was a bit of a letdown. The neatest part of Funko's boxes is that all of the items are supposed to be exclusives. Unfortunately, you can find the same version of this shirt at stores like Hot Topic. They're not made by Funko, but they are the same.

Finally, we get to the figures. There were two Mystery Mini's and a POP! figure included this month. There were four possible Mystery Mini's (Spider-Man, Homemade Suit Spider-Man, The Vulture, and Shocker). This box contained Spider-Man and Shocker.

The POP! figure was by far the best part of the box. This one was Spider-Man with his web wings. It's not the most exciting figure (I was hoping for a Spidey swinging on a web), but it's a nice variant to have.

-Vulture Patch
-Spider-Man Web Shooter Hologram Pin
-Shocker Mystery Mini
