CultureFly’s World’s Finest Collection fall 2021 unboxing and review

CultureFly’s latest World’s Finest Collection box has arrived. Here’s a look inside the fall 2021 mystery box.

The fall 2021 box did arrive late. Subscribers got an alert about this. It’s all linked to the recent shipping problems, which you’ve likely heard about in the news. The World’s Finest Collection box wasn’t the only CultureFly box delayed. The Nick Box and the Supernatural box were also delayed for me.

Despite the delay, the box is still great. The Arkham Asylum theme was certainly appreciated for a Halloween-timed box. Plus, it’s just so great to have a box that isn’t the usual DC Justice League characters. Something many have been asking for is different characters, and it looks like CultureFly is listening.

World’s Finest Collection fall 2021 unboxing video

I’ve gone back to doing some unboxing videos. They’re fun to do, and the one for the World’s Finest Collection fall 2021 box I did without even looking inside the box first. It is a true unboxing video.

Take a look below:

It’s going to be hard to break down all the items. I used to do the good, bad, and okay items. As more items became great, it was harder to do that. So, I broke them down into types of items. This is a bit harder to do as nothing really fits together. So, I’m just going to break it all down in one.

The best of the Arkham Asylum inmates

We get to see most of the Arkham Asylum inmates in a tapestry. There are a few missing that I’d have loved to see included, but I’ll take what we’ve got. The villains surround Batman in it, and that’s something that I adore. We see all the villains Batman has had to face over the decades.

The tapestry itself is made of fairly thin cloth, but it’s still good quality. There are holes with metal rings already placed in, so you can literally just hang it up on your wall. This is going in my office.

We also get a tin Arkham Asylum sign. The tin itself is wobbly, but that doesn’t take away from the fun. There are small holes so you can nail it up. I’m going to add some string and hang it on my office or bedroom door. I might even hang it on the outside door next Halloween!

My favorite item of the lot is the Poison Ivy planter. It is on the small side, but it’s a great item for my desk or windowsill. I do wish the small ivy flower was included, even if it was just a small plastic item. It would have added a bit of color. I can’t really see myself adding any flowers to this planter so I’ll have to find something colorful for Poison Ivy to hold.

The vinyl is Penguin, and it is detailed. I love the umbrella. The vinyl actually has a bit of a weight to it, which is perfect for the old-school Penguin. He will sit next to the Joker, who I already have on my shelf.

Speaking of Joker, he’s included in the box via a pin. I’m not usually a pin fan, but I adore this one. It’s a Joker card, and it’s sure to look great on the Batman bag I got a few boxes ago.

The T-shirt is Bane. As usual, the quality of the T-shirt is good. This is one of those to wash inside out. I get a feeling the detail will come off in the wash if not. It has a comic style to the image, and there’s no denying that it is Bane just at a glance. Sometimes I don’t like this, but if you come across a non-DC fan, there may be questions. The villains aren’t always recognizable, especially if it’s not the Joker or Harley Quinn!

Please ignore the bits of dog fur on the T-shirt. I accidentally laid it on my lap when pulling it out of the box and have two huskies. Huskies shed…a lot!

There are a couple of items that I probably won’t use. The first is the GCPD Evidence Vial. I thought this was Scarecrow at first, but it’s Clayface. That doesn’t really matter. It’s what is in the vial that puts me off. It’s slime! Now my kids will love it, but it ends up being so messy! It’s probably best put on a shelf and left to remain sealed.

Then there’s the Killer Croc decal. I’m not sure what the quality of the decals are like. I just have no place to put them because I rent and refuse to put anything on the walls. Smaller ones end up going on my kids’ notebooks, and you know how long the notebooks (don’t!) last, so I’ve never been able to test them out.
