Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Mug

For Fox Sake Mug – Value $9

This mug is awesome – I think my husband and I will be fighting over who gets to have this one!

Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Pen

Angry Birds Star Wars Giant Pen – Value $3?

Angry Birds Star Wares Mini Note Pad – Value $1?

Angry Birds Star Wars Notebook – Value $3?

I realize now after taking this picture that the scale of the pen doesn’t really come across correctly. (It’s 11 inches long!)

Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Socks

Lightning Bug Gummy Candy – Value $2

These gummies come with tongs that light-up as you press down to pick up a gummy worm – making them “light up.”

The Nightmare Before Christmas Socks – Value $8

On the bottom of these socks: “Somewhere Deep In These Bones.”

Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – May 2015 POP

Frankenstein Jr. & The Impossibles POP Vinyl – Value $10

This is a POP my husband doesn’t already have! (He’s become quite the collector, so that’s an accomplishment!)

Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Tee

Star Wars Return of the Jedi T-Shirt – Value $15?

This is a licensed, 100% cotton tee. Licensed tees are pretty rare in geek boxes, so I’m impressed with this inclusion.

Power Up Box Subscription Box Review – May 2015 Star Wars

Star Wars Comic 004 – Value $4

Star Wars 100 Piece Puzzle – Value $6?

My husband loves getting comics in subscription boxes, so this one is a win! We’ll probably swap or gift the puzzle though. Here is what the puzzle looks like completed:

Verdict: This box has a value of about $61. (That value could be a little off since I had to estimate prices on a few items). I think that’s good for a $40 total cost of this box – especially since everything is licensed.

What do you think of Power Up Box?

  1. I NEED a hero!

  2. Love the mug and all the Star Wars stuff. It seems a bit hodge podge for the intended ages of the items though. The mug, adult men socks/shirt is adult like whereas the rest of it seems more kid like.

  3. I love the mug! But this box doesn’t really seem worth the $40. I would rather stick with Loot Crate at less than $20 per month.

  4. I NEED those socks!!!

    • Me too!

  5. I NEED that mug!!!

  6. I NEED that puzzle!!
