This second edition of the world’s greatest nerd box from Marvel and Funko is centered around the movie studio’s newest release, Ant-Man, starring my personal hero and the man who I’d want to play me in a movie, Paul Rudd, as well as Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, T.I., and rising star Corey Stoll (of the wildly successful Netflix series House of Cards). This box contained Funko’s unmasked Ant-Man Pop! doll, along with the shrunken version which is the company’s smallest vinyl collectible. Along with that, there were two bobbleheads, including another unmasked Ant-Man, and Yellowjacket, the movie’s villain. June’s Collector Corps box was rounded out by an Ant-Man t-shirt, a collector’s pin and patch, and a comic book. I received this box in the mail before I actually saw the movie, so that only amplified my excitement for the film, which, of course, was loads of fun. For my money, Ant-Man was the best standalone Marvel movie so far, short of only the first Iron Man, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The movie was loaded with comedy, the action was great (the shrinking scenes were done particularly well), and let’s face it, everyone loves an underdog story. Michael Pena, who I love in everything he shows up in, stole every scene in which he appeared. Ant-Man will be featured in Captain America: Civil War next year!
Without further ado, I present to you Marvel Collector Corps’ Ant-Man box!
