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!
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!)
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.”
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!)
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.
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.
