I’ve been getting some awesome shirts in these boxes. The pins and patches are cool and the figures are really nice but I’m a sucker for these shirts (even though they’re in the stylized Pop art). I have the feeling my kid is gonna end up stealing those figures…
This crate was certainly worth the price in terms of content. Those Pop figures ain’t cheap. I do like how I’m always pleasantly surprised by what Marvel sends me.
If comics were a drug, X-Men would have been my gateway. I was SO into X-Men starting in grade school and up till college and I still keep tabs on what’s up in the universe now that my job is to get graphic novels for the library. Obviously, I was SUPER hyped for this box.
If I were to have one gripe, it would be the flagrant lack of Rogue here. She was always my favorite and I don’t think she gets enough spotlight time. Mystique is cool and all, tho.
But what X-Men fan in the UNIVERSE didn’t want an Xavier’s school shirt!? I don’t know why I didn’t think of that immediately when I heard this month’s theme for the box but that is my favorite item here. I may gift the other stuff but that shirt is all mine.
In an amazing amount of zero shock, the Marvel box this month is based on the upcoming Dr. Strange movie. It includes:
Dr. Strange patch
Dr. Strange pin
Dr. Strange mug
Dr. Strange Pop Figure
Dr. Strange comic
Dr. Strange Pop Figure shirt.
My favorite out of the lot is the shirt. Because it’s cute. I’ve never been the biggest Dr. Strange fan; not because I didn’t like him. I just never got into this comic. When a kid has an allowance for her comics, you can only pick so many. I’m sure I’ll take a dive into this character more now that the movie is coming up.
As for the rest? Eh, it will probably end up over on eBay. I don’t need more mugs or figures so I think they will be better off in the hands of a bigger fan than me.
Spider Gwen shirt wins this box. This shirt is awesome. I still need to invest in a pin board to mount all the pins, I pass the patches on to my kid, I like the figures, but it’s the shirt that hooked me this time. I haven’t even read that comic yet. Very happy with this month’s box.
