And the back side has the spoiler for box five’s theme – Back To School! Brings back memories of that dreaded time…
How To Make Your Aliens Shirt – Value $10?
I believe this is a Comic Con Box exclusive item, I haven’t been able to find it for sale other than eBay (which list it as a Comic Con Box item). I love the style of this shirt. I’m really into the more subtle approach to my geeky t-shirts – and this one hits the nail on the head for sure!
Colossus Funko POP – $7.68 on Amazon
This is from the latest X-Men line, which highlights the costumes from the 90’s animated series (cue a binge watch trigger…). Colossus is one of my favorites from that line, and while I already own this one, I’m about to have a very happy friend. A POP is always a great addition to a geek box!
The Amazing Spider-Man: Matters Of Life And Death – Value $12.92 on Amazon
I just about squealed when I saw this in the box. This is my favorite item (hence squealing) and I’m about to start digging into it. While this is deeper into the Spider-Man series, a volume is a great way to get an entire storyline – so I’m really excited for this one!
Marvel Civil War #1 – Value $3-4?
This is the beginning of the Secret Wars’ Civil War storyline. We also got this in July’s Geek Fuel Box. What’s nice is that each box had it’s own variant cover – and I love them both. It seems like you’re not a real geek box until you have your own variant cover nowadays. I’m ok with that!
UFS Mega Man Cards – Value $5-10?
I had to watch a video to understand just how this card game works – maybe I’m too old? I also found out that they have national and world championship – and if you win, they customize a character card just for you. This came with a nice link to a video tutorial of how to play, plus two decks of cards.
Portal 2 Keychain – Value $10.91 on Amazon
This is a very nice, decently sized keychain. I remember receiving a Portal toy in the past from a geek box – that one was really flimsy and kind of just fell apart. This on is a lot of solid – so it’s going onto the desk!
Star Trek Stick-Onz – Value $1-3
I’ve only found these on eBay for right around $3. You get a one that is almost the size of a hand, and a mini.
SpeedRunner Steam Game – Value $15
Love getting Steam games. Hate that most aren’t compatible with Macs. This one isn’t Mac compatible, which is really disappointing since I was pretty excited to try it out.
Gods & Titans Print – Value $5-10?
This print was created by Rob Prior (he also did the print from the last box). While I’m not a big fan of Godzilla and the monsters depicted, I do appreciate that it comes on nice glossy card stock.
Rocket & Stitch Art – Value $5-10?
I LOVE this print. It kind of looks like an animated film cell, and I actually check that it wasn’t in the unboxing video. It also comes in a nice, hard plastic protector – it’s like a big baseball card protector. This was created by Bill Martin who has done some work on IDW’s TMNT line and is also the lead guitarist for the band Good Charlotte.
Verdict: I’m a big fan of this month’s Comic Con Box. It’s easily my favorite, and I think their best, to date. It was really, really packed – I had trouble getting everything into the frame for pictures. It also has a great value, coming in around $80-90 value, and unique items – it’s winning on all the levels for me this month. I hope they continue this trend, they can really become a big player in the geek subscription box world!
