Collectors Corps

Recently in an effort to capitalise on the rise in popularity of geek mystery boxes like Loot Crate and Nerd Block, Marvel decided to launch their own version; Marvel Collector Corps. Unlike other boxes Marvel have been able to secure a deal with Funko and their ever popular figures which means that each box will have an exclusive figure in every box along with a load of other exclusive items.

As I hinted in earlier posts I have always had a life long ambition to create a giant robot and last year while discussing with friends what I could cosplay to this year's LFCC I played with the idea of doing Blastoise. Luckily I talked myself out of that and instead decided to do the far more achievable Hulkbuster...
