The first Marvel Collector Corp box isn’t set to ship until April, but now we know that Hulkbuster Iron Man will have something to read while he’s making his way to your house. Today Marvel and Funko announced the addition of a variant cover of Guardians Team up Meet the Avengers #1. This book, as obvious by the title, will feature both the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers.
“We are excited to announce the addition of the variant cover to the Avengers box,” says Funko CEO Brian Mariotti. “This addition proves our promise to provide exclusive and premium product, to the dedicated Marvel fan through Marvel Collector Corps.”
“What a better way to kick off the historic launch of Marvel Collector Corps than with the Avengers AND by throwing in the Guardians of the Galaxy for good measure,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “We’re beyond excited to bring this stunning variant cover exclusively to subscribers, uniting the current roster of Avengers with the biggest movie stars of 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy for an all-new action-packed adventure!”
This debut box will ship in April, for the Marvel Studios release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in theatres May 1, 2015. The Marvel Collector Corps subscription service from Funko is available for $25 per box, and fans can sign-up now at www.collectorcorps.com.
