@FunkoDCLegion Review: May 2016

The first volley fired by DC looks strangely familiar.

Review by Matt Cummings
On our last installment, we introduced you to DC's Legion of Collectors box, an eerily similar Funko every-other-monthly that made a very good first impression. And although the stink of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still in our noses, we're ready to move on to the (much better) television side, as Arrow and his posse arrive.

The Promise Before we begin, let's look at the deal again: promising a value of $50, the sub continues the tradition of Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure and t-shirt without the fluff or filter (their words). Joining at the VIGILANTE MEMBERSHIP, members receive 6 boxes every year, with the promise of an exclusive themed collectible gift on the one-year anniversary of your annual membership pf $150 p sh/h. You can also subscribe at the SIDEKICK LEVEL at $25 with $6.95 shipping. That's literally the same deal as Marvel Collector Co…

#MarvelCollectorCorps Review: April 2016

It's a month of Marvel Movie Ass Whoopin', as Marvel Collector Corps delivers another exceptional sub box.
Review by Matt Cummings
With Loot Crate long gone and our faith in Geek Fuel going ebbing and flowing from month to month), we're really enjoying the Funko runs of DC, Smuggler's Bounty, and of course Marvel Collector Corps. This month's CIVIL WAR theme is ready for next May's superhero throwdown, filled with excellent items but a couple that give us slight pause.

The Promise
Before we begin, let's look at the deal again: promising a value of $50, the box would keep the "fluff" (their words) to a minimum with Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure. Joining at the Founders level would get you an 8" exclusive figure on your one-year anniversary, but you can also subscribe at the Collector level at $25 with $6.95 shipping.

With Year One Founders receiving a Captain America statue, it's clear that a long-term…

#GeekFuel Review: April 2016

April's Geek Fuel is an appealing mish-mash of geeky goodness.
Review by Matt Cummings
March's Geek Fuel box provided us a bit of relief from the stink of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, mostly completing its mission of delivering high-quality goods to our doorstep. Mostly. And while April's haul is filled with a mish-mash of geeky goodness, it's a mish-mash all the same.

Before diving in, let's review the details:
The cost for a Month to Month is $17.90, $16.90/month for a 3-month subscription, $15.90/month for a 6-month tour and just $13.90/month for a one-year subscription. Shipping $6.00 to the US, Canada, and at least a few other countries.
We use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see how this box stands up. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after the unboxing:


Winners
We love the Rockem/Sockem t-shirt. A lot. But it's way big on us...way big. As a result, it's probably going to survive …
