Funko’s DC Legion of Collectors have returned once again with a new box in its subscription. This time, to probably no one’s surprise, the theme is the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. Will this box be worthy of the Amazon warrior princess? Read this review and wonder no more…
First we start with the box. The overall design of the Legion of Collectors’ boxes is still intact, with the featured character’s silhouette on the top, this time being WW. It is a different outline of Wonder Woman than the Women of DC Box from September of last year, with the tiara looking like the DC Cinematic Universe version. The inside of the box features pictures of Wonder Woman in various action poses. They seem to be original drawings (or from design art from the film) and I don’t recognized the art style.
Next, we get to the standard patch and pin. Of course, both are centered on Wonder Woman this month. The patch centers around the tiara and eyes of Wondy. It looks nice and you can tell it’s the movie WW because in the comics, her eyes are blue. The pin is of the movie logo, with “Legion of Collectors” on the bottom.
Next we get…socks? Yes, forgoing a T-shirt or hat, we get these Funko Wonder Woman socks. They are dark blue with red heels and a picture of a POP Wonder Woman on each sock. There are WW logos and stars done in a lighter blue. They are a bit tight on me (I am size 10.5 US in shoes). I don’t know why they didn’t go with a shirt (I’d unironically rock a cool POP WW shirt.) Just socks seems like a let down.
Next we get another Funko product, a Pint-Sized Heroes figure. These look like tiny versions of their Dorbz figures. This one comes in a blind bag, but there is only one of Wonder Woman. It’s cute, but could be a choking hazard to young kids or dogs.
Finally, we get to the Pops! We get two this time: A new Wonder Woman Pop and one of Doctor Poison. The Wondy one is new, with a more dynamic pose than the one in the Batman V Superman line. She is getting ready to use her magic lasso with a determined (for a Pop!) look on her face. Doctor Poison, a character that can be traced to the early stories in the 1940’s, is in a stand-at-ease type pose, similar to the Grand Moff Tarkin Pop for the Smuggler’s Bounty Death Star box, but with her hands in front. Her outfit looks like the one from the movie and they even gave her the half-face mask she’s been rocking in the trailers.
So, that is all that is in the LoC box for May 2017. I must admit, I an a little disappointed with the lack of a t-shirt The socks aren’t really my thing, but they even got a hashtag for wearing them to see the WW movie (#SockItToEmWW). The two Pops helps to make up for the shirt, and the Pint-Sized Hero WW gives you another Funko item to try. Still, and I will keep repeating myself, I wish they’d include more of those 3 3/4 inch Funko action figures, like the Suicide Squad ones or the first appearance Superman from March. A movie WW in that size would have rocked, Funko. Well, with this subscription, sometimes you get more, sometimes you get less.
That is all for this time. The theme for the next DC Legion of Collectors box is Batman: the Animated Series, the classic cartoon from the 1990’s that spawned the DC Animated Universe (Superman: TAS, Justice League, Batman Beyond.) You can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ in order to get your box. The deadline is 1 July 2017. By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)
