Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Flying Squirrel Mario Plush – Value $14
Super Mario Pull Back Racer – Value $10
Super Mario items are always a hit with us! Subscribers either received the Mario or Luigi plush, and the pull back racer is varied as well. We lucked out with all Mario!
Freeman’s Crabshack Tee- Value $15?
This is going in the swap pile. (After a little googling I found out this is from the video game Half-Life).
Portal 2 Key Cap – Value $6
Street Fighter Pixel Bricks – Value $12
This Street Fighter Pixel Bricks set contains 188 Pixel bricks! Thankfully it also comes with a visual instruction manual.
Notes from Hyrule – Value $4?
These are two postcard-sized white-board magnets. I didn’t have any luck finding them online, so they may be made for the box.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $60. I’m happy with the retail value – but this box is a bit of a miss for us this month since really the only two items my husband loves are the Mario toys! (But that’s the gamble with these geek and gamer boxes – it really depends on if they send items from your favorite characters/games/shows/movies etc).
What did you think of the second Arcade Block?
