A Dozen Doctors Tee – Value $10?
This month’s exclusive t-shirt is and homage to Doctor Who. It includes the 12 doctors as eggs in a Tardis egg crate. It’s thin material t-shirt – and it’s a District brand T-shirt for sizing reference – typically I’ve seen mostly Gildan.
Vader of the Lost Ark Poster – Value $8-10?
This exclusive 8×10 print depicts the classic opening scene where we first meet Indiana Jones – and as I write this I’m taking a mental note to re-watch all three movies. And of course, the Varder part of the print has his helmet replacing the golden idol. I like that the print is on very solid hard stock paper, and it’s glossy!
Adventure Time Cinnamon Bun Plush – Value $15.53 on Amazon
First thing to note is that this is actually a dog chew toy (which all plush items become in my house anyways). I was so excited to see something from Adventure Time included. And even more excited to see that it wasn’t Finn or Jake! It looks like you could receive Cinnamon Bun, Gunter, or Peppermint Butler – what did you receive?
Free Regular Modern Submission during any 2015 Wizard World Comic Con Event – Value ?
For the life of me I can’t find what a Free Regular Modern Submission actual gets you. But, if you’re planning on going to a Wizard World Comic Con you probably already know!
Marvel Ant-Man Comic #1 – Value $3-4
We received Ant-Man #5 in June’s Collector Corps, and I haven’t read it yet because it’s going to throw me into the middle of the run – so I’m excited to get #1 so I can see if it’s something I want to continue. This is also an exclusive variant cover – which is becoming very commonplace in geek boxes.
Jurassic Strike Force 5 One-Shot Terror and Tacos – Value ?
This is a short comic. It’s marked as exclusive – I’m not sure whether it’s the cover or the whole one-shot that is exclusive. I gave it a read, not really up my alley.
Antboy DVD – Value $9 on Amazon
I had never heard of this movie, so I had to do some research. This is a 2014 Danish film that is kind of a Spider-man parody. The boy gets bit by an ant, and receives super heroes powers – sound familiar? If you’re interested in taking a peek, here’s the trailer.
Well, now I can’t stop thinking about Zoolander. Sorry, I have to do it. Sorry, not sorry.
TOMY Zelda Mascot Danglers – Value $5.37 on Amazon
Inside you receive 1 of 6 characters. I received Princess Zelda. The little figures have a small lanyard attached for handing them from a zipper.
NECA Scalers 2-Pack SDCC 2104 Exclusive – Value $16
I got the value from eBay postings of this 2-pack since it’s an exclusive. I like the little NECA scalers, and I’ve even swapped for them in the past, so I love this Comic Con exclusive Iron Man and Spider-Man set!
Chomping Dinosaur – Value $4
I could only find this on eBay – so that’s where I pulled the value from. This is basically a dollar store t-rex toy.
VERDICT: The value comes in over the cost of the box – but some of the items seem like after thought toss-ins. Maybe Adventure is just too broad of a theme, because the items do feel a bit random as opposed to fitting into the theme. I’m a fan of the NECA scalers, and the dog has already taken Cinnamon Bun, but the other items will be swaps for me.
What did you think of the third Comic Con Box?
