The third Marvel Collector Corps mystery box has shipped, and the theme for this month is “Secret Wars.” The current major comic book event, “Secret Wars” is at the halfway point, so this box arrived at a perfect time. Whether people are reading the series or not, all the items in this box are nice collectibles to have. Warning, for those who don’t want to know what’s inside, stop reading here, the big reveal will continue after this paragraph. If you’re anxious to see what’s inside, keep reading and enjoy the slideshow included. Without further ado, here are the contents inside the Marvel Collector Corps “Secret Wars” mystery box for August 2015…
As collectors know, the box is decorated with the theme’s main character on the top of the box, and this month’s box has the Lady Thor printed on top, and “Secret Wars” in bold print on the front of the box. The inside of the box has comic book panels printed in red ink, and this is when collector’s know they’re in for a real treat. Starting with the smaller items, as is customary with these mystery boxes, there is a pin and a patch with the Marvel Collector Corps logo and the main character for the monthly theme. Since this month features a vast amount of characters, the pin has Iron Man and the patch has Captain America (Sam Wilson) on it. A copy of Secret Wars #1 is also included in this box, and it has a Marvel Collector Corps variant cover featuring the Funko Pop! Lady Thor on it. What’s really nice is that the book comes bagged and boarded, so it’ll arrive in mint condition.
The bigger items in this box are the t-shirt, which has the characters featured in this box (Lady Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Ultimate Spider-Man), in the Funko Pop! style, with the Secret Wars logo on the top. Also, there isn’t just one Funko Pop! vinyl figure inside, but TWO of them. As many collectors speculated, Lady Thor would be one of them, since she’s on the box, but the other figure is of Ultimate Spider-Man. They’re both exclusive to the Marvel Collector Corps, so this makes them nice collectibles to have in any collection. There may only be six items in this box, but it’s all so worth having. Another superb mystery box from Marvel Collector Corps, and once again, no filler items. This is what makes this bi-monthly box worth subscribing to.
According to the website, their motto is, “No Fluff – $50 Value in every box! When you spend just $25, you’ll get $50 in value of exclusive, high-quality collectible products including but not limited to apparel, accessories, toys and memorabilia. No fluff, no filler!” Three boxes in, and this statement still remains true, there’s no room for items that can’t be given away for free at comic conventions here. The October theme will be revealed in September, so we’ll have to wait to see what the next theme is. It may be a character, a team of characters, or a current story line, but the bottom line is, it’ll be exciting to see what Marvel Collector Corps will have in store for us next. It would be nice if it had a Halloween theme for the month of October. For more information, pricing, or to place an order for the next box, click HERE.
