Call Of Duty MW3 Shirt – Value $10?

This one is really confusing for me. Modern Warfare 3 came out in 2011, so this is a tiny bit outdated for a featured shirt in a box.

Superman Crew Socks – Value $8.65 on Amazon

I never mind receiving socks because I’ll always get use out of them. These socks are not your normal cotton sock, in fact, it’s 98% Polyester and 2% Spandex. I might be sliding across the hardwood floors in these.

Super Mario Bros Wallet – Value $18.33 on Amazon

This is my favorite item of the box. It seems well constructed even though it has that look of a velcro wallet. I’ve been thinking of moving away from my slim wallet lately, so maybe this timing is perfect.

Lego Head Magnet – Value $5-7?

I can’t find this item online, so the value is purely a guess. I thought this was a magnet, which I wasn’t excited for – but now that I see it’s a coaster, I think it’s an awesome item! I’ll be using this on my desk all the time.

Nintendo Dog Tags – Value $8 on Amazon

These are two metal dogtags. One is just a flat black dogtag, while the other is the classic Nintendo controller!

Twisted Lip Pops Lollipops – Value $2

The final item was this Pink Lemonade lollipop.

Verdict: This was an ok box for Powered Geek Box. Actually, on first glance of the items, I was a bit disappointed. But, once I started review the individual items, I was pretty happy with the socks, coaster, and wallet. The value of the items does come in over cost of the box, which is great. I’m still really confused to find a MW3 shirt in the box! I really wish this box would have themes, or spoilers, or anything really to get an idea of what to expect month to month.

What did you think of the September Powered Geek Box?

  1. Wow I would be disappointed if I ordered this box. I actually bought that exact same MW3 shirt at Walmart 3 or 4 years ago.

  2. Yuck, yuck, yuck! I would be so disappointed if this is what I got at that price point! At least with Loot Crate the price is reasonable, so if the theme doesn’t fit, I’m okay with it.
