Funko Pop fans – if you’re looking for the Age of Ultron Hulkbuster, there’s only one way to get it. That’s by being a member of Funko’s Marvel Collector Corps. The Collector Corps will offer a new goodie box every two months to members. For $25, you’ll get a box with $50 worth of Marvel merchandise. The first is due to go out this month, and will include the Funko Pop Age of Ultron Hulkbuster Iron Man, a variant Marvel comic book, and a t-shirt (one of four designs). The next box hasn’t been revealed, but it will have an Ant-Man theme.
But that’s not all – Marvel is sponsoring weekly giveaways leading up to the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (pre-order your Avengers: AOU tickets on Fandango). Each week, a lucky winner will get a whole year of the Marvel Collector Corps as their prize. That will include the Age of Ultron box with the Hulkbuster Iron Man, five more Marvel boxes with $50 worth of goodies in them, and an exclusive Founder’s statue. (You can get that too even if you don’t win the giveaway, by subscribing in April and going for the full year.)
It’s easy to enter the giveaway – just post a fan photo on Twitter or Instagram with the #AvengersUltimateFanSweeps hashtag. You can even use one of the pics of the Hulkbuster included here.
Repost that photo with the hashtag #ONE12TFEX – if you can’t figure out how to get the photo out of Instagram (for example, by taking a screenshot of it in the Instagram app on your phone), you can download the photo here.
Mezco will pick a lucky winner on Monday, April 6. Good luck!
Mattel is continuing to clear out remaining inventory at Mattycollector – on sale tomorrow for 20% off are DC Universe and Masters of the Universe Classics figures from San Diego Comic-Con and the “traveling conventions.” Most of these are from the past two years – but I’m surprised that Matty still has some of the Mo-Larr vs Skeletor 2-packs from way back in 2010 in stock. I’m a Robot Chicken fan, but maybe the Eternian Dentist was too much of a stretch for the hardcore He-Fans.
The sale at Mattycollector starts at 9AM PST tomorrow, April 2nd. It lasts for 24 hours, but judging from previous sales, your best bet is to get there at the opening bell if there’s something you really want. No April Fools, and happy shopping!
It’s a one-day sale, so don’t delay. Happy shopping!
Note: Our email digests are sent out once a day (we don’t want to clog your inbox when we post more than that), and some subscribers can miss out on these one day only sales. Please consider following AFP on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter for instant updates. Happy shopping!
