Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. The theme this month is Arcade.
Super Street Fighter Bobble Budds Ryu – Value $24 on Amazon
First off, I was surprised by the value, but I haven’t been able to find a Ryu Bobble Budds lower than $20-25. This bobble head is 3 1/2 inches tall and all the pieces come apart. This is the first time I’ve seen a bobble budd – not sure if I’m the target audience for it though.
Space Alien Lanyard – Value $5?
This lanyard celebrates Space Invaders, with a classic “Game Over” arcade aesthetic.
Spider-Man Zipper Pull – Value $5 on Amazon
At first, I couldn’t figure out what Spidey had to do with Arcade, but it makes sense that this would be the ‘Marvel’ side or Marvel vs Capcom.
Pac-Man Candy Tin – Value $5 on Amazon
You have to include Pac-Man in an arcade themed box! I really like the tin this comes in. The bottom pulls off so you can munch on strawberry flavored Pan-Man candies.
Metallic Arcade Decal – Value $2?
I couldn’t find this for sale online. It’s a flexible, metallic looking, Arcade sticker
Fight Fight Revolution T-Shirt – Value $10?
This exclusive t-shirt is a Dan Dance Revolution and Street Fighter mashup – combining two extremely popular arcade games. It’s a nice, thin material t-shirt.
Verdict: The value of the items comes in well over the cost of this box. While I love the arcade, and arcade themed boxes, this one focused on games that I wasn’t as much of a fan of.
