Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. The theme this month is Justice.
Super Rangers T-Shirt – Value $10?
This exclusive t-shirt is a mashup of Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach as Power Rangers. I never got into Power Rangers when I was young, and while I still love Mario – this is a swap for me.
Batman Super Hero Shades – Value $12.99
I thought the brand of these glasses sounded familiar – they are from a company that was on Shark Tank, which Liz and I are fans of! The lenses are reflective, and they’re made from a matte, thicker, plastic. Since I wear glasses – these are definitely a swap item.
Justice League Wind Ups – Value $5-10?
From my research it seems like these are Target exclusives – the value is just a guess. I received Batman – what did everyone else get? We received a Walking Dead Wind Up in a past 1UP Box, so we may see more of these in the future. I’m very partial to vinyl figures in boxes!
TMNT Turtle Topper – Value $2.50 Based on 4-Pack on Amazon
I got Rafael as my topper – but you could receive any of the turtles. If I can keep this away from the dog, i’ll probably use it for fun! This is a keeper.
Exclusive Justice Tattoos – Value ?
I like the idea of having 6 classic weapons, but like all other tattoos from boxes, we just don’t use them.
Princess 007 Magnet – Value ?
Princess Leia in the classic 007 pose and graphic.
Verdict: 1UP Box is usually good about coming in over value (at least in shipping to the US), and this is no exception. They did pick some great heroes for their Justice theme. Most of the items this month weren’t really for me – but I’m totally keeping the TMNT topper. T0 me, 1UP feels like a geek box more focused to the younger crowd – somewhat similar to the Junior Nerd Blocks – do you agree?
