Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Info Card Back

And the back side has the spoiler for box five’s theme – Back To School! Brings back memories of that dreaded time…

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - How To Make Your Alien T-Shirt

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!

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Colossus Funko POP

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!

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Comics

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!

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Portal 2 Keychain and UFS Card Game

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!

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Stick-Onz and Steam Game

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.

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Gods and Titans Art

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.

Comic Con Box Subscription Box Review - July 2015 - Rocket and Stitch Art

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!

  1. I always start thinking “Ooh I want that box!” and then I realize that what I really mean is “Ooh, I want that Funko Pop!” and then I go to Amazon and buy the box’s value in assorted figures.

  2. I haven’t seen anything on this site, but did you see that Pop in a Box now ships internationally!!

    • I was so excited to see that! And the shipping isn’t bad. But after the exchange rate, it would be over $18/month, so not worth the cost for me. 🙁

      • It depends on what you put on your list of wants and what ones you get. They have a good number of exclusives and the cost per figure on the subscription is the 8,49 pounds, not the regular store price. I will soon find out whether it is worth it or not. I will be getting my first one soon and, while I tried not to peek, it is hard for someone who uses a screen reader not to hear what the reader says, so I know my first box includes a La Muerte GITD Pop and a K-3PO exclusive. I managed to close my ears so to speak after that, so I will still get a couple of surprises, but I was quite happy with the two I spoiled by letting my reader read the page. I was careful about what I put on my thumbs up list, so I may not always get my full compliment each month, but I like the fact that if you don’t have enough on your list of wants, you just get charged for the number of Pops they have. I’ve been tempted by the Comic Con box along with a couple of other newer ones, but I had to drop two other boxes to be able to try PIAB, so other experiments will have to wait. We’ll see how worth it I find PIAB over the next couple of months.

  3. Wow, this is an amazing box!

    The Rocket & Stitch Art looks really cool–I like the colors/style. Which is a little crazy because I am not a Lilo & Stitch fan to begin with and haven’t watched Guardians of the Galaxy yet…

  4. Funny – I just posted my review of the same box today on!
    I would’ve preferred your graphic novel to the one I received, but I was very happy overall too.

    • Nice review, awesome box, I would have squealed too! Will have to consider adding this one to our monthly subs.
