I just got the latest DC Legion of Collectors subscription box from Funko today. This month’s theme is Batman: the Animated Series, the modern classic that kicked off a wave of superhero cartoons that prized good storytelling over selling toys. I have been looking forward to this box so lets takae a look.
The box features the silhouette of the Penguin (from his 1997 redesign when the series was revived on the WB) done in blue. The box is rather large this month. Other than that, it is just a box.
Opening the lid, you can see the box’s interior is decorated with art done in the DC Animated Universe style, which Batman: The Animated Series started.
On the top flap are the pin and patch, as always. The patch features the Joker (in his original design for the series). As you can see, it is a nice looking patch. The pin features Catwoman (again in her original design) on top of a diamond-shaped background.
Under the flap we have the comic book. It is a reprint of The Batman Adventures #1, which tells stories in the style and set in the BTAS universe. This was originally published in 1992 and I remember actually having this issue. It is a self contained story written by Kelley Puckett with art by Ty Templeton and Rick Burchett.
The T-Shirt this time features a Pop version of the Batman the Animated Series logo. Done in black, white and red, it looks awesome on the black t-shirt. I think I have a new favourite shirt.
Next is the Pop! We get a Mr Freeze pop vinyl, which was the most requested pop for the BTAS pop line. Mr Freeze’s colours are cartoon accurate and even has a dome over his head. The body is well done, if in the standard pop stance, but there is some nice detail with his gun, and the tank on his back. This definitely the Pop to have for any Batman fan.
Finally, we get to… the Dorbz Ridez?. We get a Dorbz Batman along with a little Batmobile for him to ride in. The Batman can be taken out of the Batmobile easily enough, but the tires to not roll. I think it is great. I like Dorbz well enough, it is just I am running out of room with my Pops and this…this isn’t helping. Oh, the trial of being a collector…
That is all for this box. There was a lot of awesome stuff this month. My favourite has to be the T-shirt, though. The next DC Legion of Collectors box ships late August and will feature DC’s Most Wanted, centering on the villains. If you wish to get the next box, you can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ . The deadline is 1 August 2017. By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)
