Unboxing | Marvel Collector Corps Superhero Showdown

It's that time again for another Marvel Collector Corps unboxing!  I feel like it's been a while since we got just a "generic" box that wasn't themed around a movie or property, and I didn't really know what to expect with this one.  February's box was themed as Superhero Showdown, showcasing some of the classic Marvel rivalries.  Let's take a look inside!

As always, the first thing you see when you open up a Collector Corps box are the patch and pin. We have an Ironman v. Ultron patch and a Hulk/Red Hulk pin.  I still have yet to find something to do with these, so if you have any ideas help a girl out!

Next up is the t-shirt, which showcases one of the more popular and well known rivalries in Spiderman and Green Goblin.  Of course they have been Pop-ified!  It is designed to look like a comic book cover and is pretty cute.  It will more than likely go in my workout clothes collection.

We always receive a variant cover, and this month's is Inhumans vs. X-Men.  I'm not reading this one and don't know that I'm terribly interested.  I generally just add these to one of my boxes of comics.  It's rare that I actually ever read them.  I think the only one that I read and ended up really liking and getting every month was Black Panther, which I believe we got in the Civil War box.

Now these guys I like!  How cute are they!?  They are (obviously) Captain America and Red Skull.  I figured they were going to be represented in this box and I'm happy that they made them into the Pint Size Heroes!  I love this new line of bitty guys that Funko makes.

Last up are the exclusive Pops, which ended up being a dual pack of DareDevil and Bullseye.  The DareDevil is an air-born one that comes with a clear stand for display purposes.  I know there's a lot of people who don't like these jumping ones much, but I think they're pretty cool.  They're fun to style.  I'll be honest that I'm not overly familiar with DareDevil and his villains.  I've watched the first season on Netflix and half of the second season, so I'm unsure of whether he is in the show or not, but I think the Pops are pretty cool!

And that is it for the February box.  I think I mentioned before that I'm giving up my Founders subscription, as there are enough months that are underwhelming and I just have no desire to display anyone that I get.  I'll be going more on a month-by-month basis.  The next box in April is Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to get that.  I'm sure there's going to be something Groot in there that I'm going to need and I'll be mad at myself for not getting it!

Of course, once I had come to terms with the fact that I would no longer be receiving a Funko box they announced that they would be doing a Disney box.  So naturally, I have subscribed to that one.  I think this one is better suited for me.  While I really do like Marvel, I feel like that universe is so vast that I don't know a lot of people in it, or don't really care much about them.  With Disney, I generally like pretty much everything.  While I may not love a certain movie, I'm certainly never going to turn anything Disney down.  So I'm excited to get in on this one!   Subscribe to the Disney Treasures box by I'm going to assume the end of March (it doesn't give a cut-off on the website) to receive the Pirates Cove box!  This features an exclusive Smee Pop, as well as a Pirates of the Caribbean park ride themed Dorbz Ride!  They both look absolutely adorable.  The boxes also include other Disney and Disney Parks merchandise that is exclusive to the box.  I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!

You best believe I will be back next month with the unboxing of that one, so stay tuned if you're unsure about that box and want to see what it's all about before subscribing!

Did you received this Collector Corps box?  What did you think?  Are you equally excited about the Disney Treasures box?  Because I'm pretty much jumping out of my skin about it.  Let's chat in the comments!
