Even with San Diego Comic-Con 2016 looming, the King of Exclusives–Funko–never slows down on any front! And so, last night Funko sent out an E-Mail to Marvel Collector Corps Founders (those who signed up for a one-year subscription to MCC before the first box and have remained active members) announcing a big surprise: the biggest Marvel Collector Corps box ever (with the same cost as five smaller Funko Collector Corps boxes)! Read on for my thoughts and the known details on the Funko Marvel Collector Corps Year One Super Box that goes up for order today…
I’ll give my thoughts and speculation on this box in just a moment, but a good place to begin would be by sharing the text from the official E-Mail that I received from Funko last night regarding the Year One Collector Corps Super Box…
When you signed up, we promised that, as a Founder, you’d get some special perks. One of those perks will be available to you starting tomorrow!
In honor of our fantastic first year, we’re releasing a Year One Super Box. This box is bigger and better than anything that’s come before, and it’s available to Founders first through 7/13 (while supplies last)!
The Year One Super Box will cost $125, including shipping, and will be available until stock runs out. Supplies are extremely limited, so if you want the box, you’ll need to act fast! Simply log into your account at 10 am PST tomorrow morning and check your Members Only Products section. As long as you have an active Founder membership, a credit card attached to your account, and a US or Canadian shipping address, you should see the Year One Super Box in the Exclusives section as long as supplies are left!
Limit is 1 per user account, and the box will ship in late July.
Note that, if you’re a PayPal customer, you’ll need to switch to credit card before tomorrow in order to be eligible!
Thank you so much for not only being a Founder, but for renewing for a second year! And don’t forget to set an alarm if you’re interested in this box — we expect it to sell out fast!

Well, Funko has been pretty tight-lipped about the contents of this box–as they’ve literally given zero hints of insights regarding its contents–but given that they paid for a mold for a Funko Hikari Captain America figure that’s only been used for one colorway, and taking into consideration that this box is large enough to fit both a Hikari and a POP Vinyl, I’d almost be willing to bet money that we see an exclusive Funko Captain America Hikari vinyl in this box.
Other than that, I can’t even begin to guess what might be included, but I’d say without any question there will be both an exclusive Marvel POP Vinyls figure and no repeated exclusives/leftovers from previous boxes. If Funko shilled off leftovers old stock to their Founders who are guaranteed to already own those exclusives, they would quickly have no Founders left.
The Funko Year One Super Box will be available at 1PM EST today (7/7/2016) in the Members Only Product section of the Marvel Collector Corps website. This Members Only Product page is a new addition to the site that’s only popped up recently, so a lot of MCC members may not have even known of its existence until they got this E-Mail. They’ll sure know about it now, though, that’s for sure!
What do you think or hope will be in the MCC Year One Super Box, Marvel collectors? Are you willing to drop 125 bucks sight-unseen on a Marvel Funko Mystery Box, or is this too much of a gamble to earn your dollars?
