Funko Subscription Box Update: ALL Subscriptions Ending

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure
Notification

Funko has emailed out to subscribers of Smuggler’s Bounty, Marvel Collector Corps, Disney Treasures and DC Legion of Collectors that all subscriptions are ending and transitioning to a retail product.

As an account holder/past subscriber, you will:

  • Receive prioritized emails communicating that new boxes are available for purchase.
  • Not be guaranteed future boxes when new themes become available for purchase.
  • Need to log in to your account to purchase each future collectibles box.

We will paste the individual letters below, which all vary, but here’s what you need to know (based on our interpretation of the below emails – if you want to see if you get your box without the additional purchase go ahead, but based on the LENGTHY and CONFUSING emails this is what we think you need to do):

  • Disney Treasures: Log In to purchase the Adventures Box
  • Smuggler’s Bounty: Log In to purchase the Endor Box (note that it says the subscription is ending in September but EVERYONE NEEDS TO BUY THEIR ENDOR BOX)
  • Marvel Collector Corps: Log In to purchase the Avengers: Infinity War box (site currently down is up now!). It wasn’t stated but it appears the Animal Instinct box will be shipped as normal.
  • DC Legion of Collectors: The Green Lantern box will be shipped on subscription as normal. If you want the advance benefits as described below for the other subscriptions, you may want to subscribe.

What do you think of this news? I couldn’t have predicted that a subscription service would be going purely retail and we’ll be following it all closely. The retail partner must be Target or Walmart (my guess is Target) but it could possibly be Best Buy, or even Amazon.

For your convenience, all four emails are replicated below. Note that we’re annual subscribers.

DC Legion of Collectors

Dear Valued Subscriber,

In effort to allow Funko to focus on what they do best – creating unique, quality collectibles, Funko will be discontinuing the subscription offering for the Legion of Collectors box on March 2, 2018. Therefore, the current Legion of Collectors Green Lantern Corps box offered by Funko will be the last collectibles box available for purchase by account holders.

Have no fear! The boxes aren’t disappearing completely. After the discontinuation date, Funko will be transitioning the DC Legion of Collectors collectibles box to retail. Funko will be partnering with an exclusive retailer to deliver a DC Legion of Collectors box as a retail offering. Stay tuned for upcoming details.

Once the Legion of Collectors Subscription service is discontinued, any refunds for annual subscription boxes that are not fulfilled will be processed back to the credit card currently on file in your account. Your action is to, prior to March 2, please ensure that the credit card and billing information for your account is up to date. As an Annual Subscriber, you will still receive your members-only annual gift.

For a complete set of Frequently Asked Questions, please visit the Legion of Collectors Blog.

We value your commitment to Funko and to the DC Legion of Collectors subscription. Funko has taken great care to curate the best of the DC Comics universe for our collector community. We take pride in the quality and uniqueness of the products we have delivered to you through this service.
