Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. (Not every item is listed, so there may be some variation in this box). And on the flipside of the card they give a preview of the theme for next month:
No Strings Tee – Value $12?
This tee is made with 100% pre-shrunk cotton, and exclusive to Comic Con Box.
Avengers Kree-Skrull War Card Pack – Value $4?
It looks like this card pack is only available for attendees of Wizard World-sponsored Comic Cons. Here are details on the card pack:
The 10-card packs include nine “The Avengers: Kree-Skrull War” trading cards from Upper Deck and one special promo card. If put together like a puzzle, the first nine cards will form an exact copy of the actual cover of one of the fast-approaching Kree-Skrull War tales being released by Upper Deck via a special Marvel® comic book card product!
Billionaire Playboys Print – Value $10?
Marvel Secret Wars Comic (Exclusive Variant) – Value $5
Both of these items are exclusive to Comic Con Box. This is our second exclusive variant of the Marvel Secret Wars Comic! (We also received one in Comic Block).
Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Mug – Value $13
Metal Earth Halo Master Chief Helmet – Value $9
This mug is oversized (20 oz), and both microwave and dishwasher safe. (And I think it might be my husband’s favorite item in the box!)
We’ve never received anything like this metal model kit before in a geek box – it’s pretty interesting! (You can see the finished product from Amazon).
Mustache Friends Plushstache – Value $10
Marvel Smashem – Value $2
The Lego Movie Luggage Tag – Value $5
These items aren’t listed on the info card, so I’m guessing they may vary box-to-box. The lego luggage tag is pretty fun – and surprisingly well-made!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70. I think that’s good for the $37 cost. (I did estimate the value of a few of the items though, so my calculations could be a little off). I’m curious to see a few more Comic Con Boxes before I make more of a verdict on this subscription, but so far so good!
