Jungle Cruise Review 'SUMMER ADVENTURE of the year'

@FunkoDCLegion Review: March 2017

Legion's DC LEGACY box pushes the boundaries of Funko cool. Review by Matt Cummings We were mightily impressed with January's DC LEGACY, a sub box that pushed the boundaries and shook off some dust that had accumulated on Funko's business plan. And even though our box arrived damaged, March 2017's arrival takes a slight step sideways with SUPERMAN, celebrating the classic character with a collection of great products that once again stretch the genre into exciting new territory. 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).

@FunkoDCLegion Review: January 2017

Legion's DC LEGACY box pushes the boundaries of Funko cool. Review by Matt Cummings With a November BATMAN VILLAINS that exposed Funko's long-term problem with all of their lines (that is, a serious amount of fatigue), January 2017's sub box is a startling lesson that perhaps the company has actually listened to fans, taken the heartbeat of the sub box genre, and arrived at a terrific solution.

@FunkoDCLegion Review: November 2016

Legion's BATMAN VILLAINS box exposes Funko's larger, long-term problem. Review by Matt Cummings After several months of outstanding boxes, DC's Legion of Collectors has already proven its worth with July's SUICIDE SQUAD and September's WOMEN OF DC. But just like their other brands which include Marvel Collector Corps and Smuggler's Bounty, Funko is in...well...a funk. Hampered by the same sorts of boxes release after release, the company is starting to show signs of fatigue. Nowhere else is this more prevalent than in November's BATMAN VILLAINS, a box that at best is a push, and at worst exposes a long-term problem with the company's business plan.

@FunkoDCLegion Review: September 2016

Legion's WOMEN OF DC box packs a Wonder Woman punch of bad ass! Review by Matt Cummings DC's Legion of Collectors box has already proven its worth with a well-appointed SUICIDE SQUAD box in July and a solid series of offerings that are also strangely familiar to Marvel Collector Corps. But the question always remained how the every-other-month sub box would handle periods where no new DC film or TV show was available. I am happy to report that this month's WOMEN OF DC reveals an impressive set of goodies that establishes itself as one of the best superhero boxes of 2016.

@FunkoDCLegion Review: July 2016

The first volley fired by DC looks strangely familiar. Review by Matt Cummings DC's Legion of Collectors box has established itself as a very good competitor to the flooded sub box market. Filled with an eerily similar Funko every-other-monthly, it's also grown to include awesome shirts. There have been some missed opportunities, but nothing so severe that caused me long-term worry. July's box all but removes any doubt, gifting us an impressive amount of Squad gear, while getting us ready for August's movie release.
