Subscription box services are blowing up, and rightfully so – if you can offer something on a regular basis that fans will shell out money for, then it make sense to make an offer. Funko teamed with Marvel last year to create the Marvel Collector’s Corps, and now it is doing the same for DC fans with the Legion of Collectors.
Like the Marvel box, the Legion of Collectors service will be bi-monthly and include at least one Pop! Vinyl figure in addition to a bunch of other DC related goods. The first month’s box will be Batman v Superman related, and will include an armored Batman Pop! Vinyl. With the movie also arriving in theaters in March, this seems like the best time to launch the service.
The six box Hero Membership will set you back $150, which may seem like a lot until you realize that the stuff you receive from the service is worth at least $50 per box.
Of all the subscription services we’ve had float through the Major Spoilers HQ, the Marvel Collector’s Corps seems to be the most suited to our likes and interests, so I expect the DC Comics Legion of Collectors service to be a success here as well.
