It is November, so it is time for the last Funko/DC Legion of Collector’s subscription box of the year. To probably no one’s surprise, the current theme is the Justice League movie, coming to theatres 17 Nov 17. What’s in the box? How many Pops do we get? Can Jason Momoa make Aquaman seem cool? We will answer two of those three questions in the review.
The box design remains the same. This time, we get the shadow of Aquaman, as portrayed by Jason Momoa. He is holding his signature weapon, a…Quindent? It is not a trident, because there is too many prongs. Maybe it is a giant shrimp fork? An Atlantean pitch fork for kelp farming? Hopefully the movie cleans that up.
The inside liner features the symbols of the six heroes from the movie.. We also get the Justice League movie logo.
No patch again, but we do get this pin of the Batman. He is wearing goggles, which makes me think of Nite Owl from Zack Snyder’s other superhero film, Watchmen. Snazzy pin, though.
Next it this T-shirt. This black shirt features a straight up illustration of the heroes in the Justice League movie. The art reflects their look in the movie, but depicts the characters in a way more akin to the comic book, not going for the actor’s likeness.
Next, we get stationary, featuring the Flash (think about it!) These sticky notes feature a running Popified Flash. All of the pages are the same, so no flip book action, which would have been cool, but more expensive to produce.
Next we get… a straw! A subliminal message to all the Zack Snyder haters to “suck it”? No. It goes with this!
It is a Wonder Woman tumbler with a lid. It is made of a very thick plastic and seems durable. It is a nice change from the coffee mugs. I am going to have to fight the wife over this one.
Now, we get to the Pops. Yes, we get two of them: Steppenwolf and Aquaman. Both of these are exclusive to the Legion of Collectors. First is Steppenwolf. A general of Darkseid’s army and a vanguard for his invasion forces, he will take you on a magic carpet ride of destruction. I’m sure he was born to be wild. Next we get Aquaman.. He comes with a stand to show him bursting out of the water.. He is shirtless and we get to see his tattoos.
So that’s the box. This is a really solid one and I like all the items included. The pop vinyls are probably the highlight for me (as they should be) with the tumbler and T-shirt close behind. I hope the movie will be as good or better. I plan to do a review of it next weekend, providing I go see it.
The next DC Legion of Collectors box ships in January 2018 and will feature the (mostly) Teen Titans. It looks to be based of the comics, not the crappy Teen Titans GO! cartoon. You cancelled Young Justice of that, WB? If you wish to get the next box, you can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ . The deadline is 1 January 2018. By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)
