Funko Legion of Collectors Suicide Squad Unboxing
The DC Legion of Collectors subscription box pushed things into overdrive this month with the Suicide Squad-themed box. Though Funko has yet to put any attention on the comic book side of the DC brand (the upcoming Women of DC box should fix that), the offerings tied to the cinematic side of things haven't been a disappointment. If anything, the Legion of Collectors has been on an upward path since inception, improving upon each release with new goods and more variation than the other two sub boxes Funko currently offers. That's doubly true here as the Suicide Squad Legion of Collectors box introduced an entirely new and exclusive action figure line. Of course, the standard fare is also still included, so don't worry about missing out on that patch, pin, t-shirt and Pop. Before covering all the good inside though, it's worth mentioning that this month our box was absent the exclusive variant comic of the original Suicide Squad #1. A small oversight that in no way ruined the rest of the contents, especially given the lack of mistakes we've experienced across the rest of the company's sub boxes. Still, would have been nice to enjoy the earliest adventures of DC's most reluctant heroes.

Funko's second Legion of Collectors subscription box brings all your favorite characters from DC's television universes together mostly in time for their season finales. Though Supergirl ended in April, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow are all nearing wrap dates on their respective seasons. Thus far, Funko's DC efforts have all been tied to the cinema or television worlds, and that trend will continue into the next box, which is themed around Suicide Squad. You would think eventually Funko will get around to linking these boxes to the comic universe (as they have with Marvel a few times), but perhaps it's for the best to focus on the one consistent constant in DC's stable right now and hit up the Rebirth Universe later. For now, all we actually have is the DC TV box, and it's pretty good.

If you were wondering why there wasn't an armored Batman in Funko's recent deluge of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice collectibles, today we got the answer. Though it's been in the works for some time, Funko has only just now unveiled its DC Comics subscription service, Legion of Collectors. The very first exclusive figure included will be the armored Batman from the upcoming Warner Bros. feature film, which makes perfect sense given that the bi-monthly box will launch in March alongside that movie he stole from Superman. The Legion of Collectors borrows a bit of its name from DC's spacefaring superteam of the future, but considering the Legion's presence in the current DC catalog, it's unlikely we'll see a Matter-Eater Lad or Saturn Girl Pop figure any time soon. This is the third subscription service from Funko launched in the last year or so, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the charge into Funko's direct-to-consumer sales. Like those other two subscriptions, everything included will be 100% exclusive. It also gives people who've subscribed to all three a new box of Funko goods every month of the year.
