I’m not big into subscription boxes, but when I saw that Marvel Collector Corps had a Women of Power box, I had to have it. Some of my favorite superheroes are the ladies of Marvel, and I was thrilled that these women would be spotlighted. So, I succumbed to the subscription box madness–just this once.
The results blew any expectations I had out of the water. When my box arrived earlier this week, I found it to be rather hefty (a good sign). The actual box was beautiful: it was emblazoned with illustrations of Thor, Captain Marvel, Spider Gwen, and other powerful ladies. Opening the first flap revealed a Ms. Marvel patch and a Spider Woman pin. I was so glad they used Kamala Khan’s Ms. Marvel on the patch. The next flap revealed a bounty of goodies. Not only was there a Spider Gwen t-shirt and a Civil War II #1 variant cover, but there were three bobble heads by Funko: a Pop! Vinyl of Squirrel Girl and Tippy Toe, and two mini ones of She-Hulk and Captain Marvel. I was blown away!
The information card that came with the box detailed all of the time and consideration that went into curating this box. That made the box all the more special to me. And, of course, the cool things were a nice touch. There was just one more thing I had to do with my new swag: I had to introduce the newbies to the rest of my collection.
The next Marvel Collector Corps box will feature Spider-Man goodies. Since I’m not a big Spidey buff, I won’t be getting that box, but I will seriously consider getting another one if I like the theme. You’re truly getting your money’s worth out of one box.
