Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. The theme this month is Combat.
Link vs. Ink Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s shirt features a pirate Link battling a squid. I’ve never been a big Zelda fan, so I wasn’t too excited for this shirt – but I’m sure any Zelda fan would be excited for it.
Funko Wolverine Dorbz Vinyl Figure – Value $10.61 on Amazon
This is my easy pick for favorite item this month. Wolverine is one of my favorite characters since way back, and I love collecting wolverine vinyl figures and status, so it’s an easy way to my heart, for sure. The new Dorbz line is slowly growing on me more and more, probably the same way Funko’s POP line did, and then all of the sudden, I owned 100 POPs.
Dragon Stress Ball – Value $3-4?
Next up is an exclusive Dragon Ball stress ball. If you’ve read my recent reviews, you’ll know I like getting stress balls in boxes – I’m using the Rubik’s Cube one while I’m reviewing this box!
Catch-Them-All Sweatband – Value 5?
I can’t find this exact sweatband online – so I’m really just guessing on value. This is a Pokemon sweatband – this is another one where I’m not a huge fan of the subject, so I’ll probably be gifting.
Combat Panda Patch – Value $3-4?
The last two items are exclusive for 1Up. The patch is a Deadpool Panda bear, and the sticker depicts the likes of Mega Man, Pikachu, sonic, and others in their combat positions – fits well with the theme!
Verdict: 1UP Box definitely delivers on value. Last review I said that it feels like a geek box focused on a younger crowd – and I think it makes sense for these items as well. And I think they’re definitely doing a great job for a younger audience while still including items that I love – like my Wolverine Dorbz figure!
