Star Wars Jelly Belly – $1.95 on Amazon

Try to use The Force, or just pour the whole bag into your mouth. Whatever works for you!

Crystal Growing Kit – $11.29 on Amazon

I thought they were forcing the ‘science’ part of their subscription into this item, but the card has a really cool fact I hadn’t known about.

Ever wonder what powers a lightsaber? According to Star Wars lore, a set of crystals resonates at the heart of every lightsaber.

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon December 2015 - Socks and book

Star Wars Force Awakens BB8 Socks – Value $8.99

These aren’t for sale anymore but were on sale at SuperHeroStuff in the past. I can’t lie. I immediately put on my BB8 socks and had coffee out of my BB8 mug. I’m ready for Friday. This is two pairs of socks.

Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind – Value $8.04 on Amazon

Very cool! This is a smart way to introduce the science aspect for Star Wars as well! From Amazon:

From its very first frame, the Star Wars series created a compelling universe with complex characters and engaging storytelling. In advance of the highly anticipated new movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this collection offers a fascinating psychological analysis of every aspect of George Lucas’s richly rendered galaxy. Expert contributors led by Travis Langley ( Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight; The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead) examine such topics as family ties, gender, prejudice, values, villainy, and heroism itself, including a look at how psychoanalysis and archetypes directly shaped the original trilogy. They shine a light into the hidden part of the psyche and reveal the ultimate lesson of Star Wars.

Star Wars Pin – Value $1-2?

It looks like there may have been numerous iterations of this pin from the basic logo to Han’s blaster. I got an X-Wing.

Star Wars Canon Timeline Poster – Value $15-20

This is cool, and exclusive. They put together the timeline from all the movies, comics, animated show, video games, etc. It’s huge too, coming in at 39 inches tall! It’s so exciting to be moving into unknown territory with The Force Awakens!

Kylo Ren MimoPowerTube – Value $29.99

This was missing from my shipment. If you are also missing it, make sure to contact supplypod@outerplaces.com and they’ll fix the issue. They’ve already shipped mine out!

Verdict: This was a great box from Outer Places! Once I get my charger, I’ll have plenty to geek out about from this box. I think they did a good job mixing science with Star Wars this month. it’s an interesting and unique subscription, so I’m excited about February’s box!

  1. I ordered this month’s Star Wars themed Supply Pod and really enjoyed it. I love how they put Sci Fi and science together in one box. The canon time line was also one of my favorite items. Hands on learning of science is an awesome way to stay interested in learning new things so the crystal growing kit caught my attention also. My Star Wars Psychology book was signed…very excited about that! I can’t wait to learn about all the mental goings on of Star Wars.
    I will definitely be ordering the X Files Supply Pod which I am extra super excited about.

  2. I like this box and the first box too. As a result and because the spoiler for February is X-Files!! I signed up! I wish I had gotten the other two boxes, but its ok I have so much stuff. I also like that its every other month. I got a few pairs of Christmas themed Star Wars socks from Target (it was a gift from my hubby – I am way more geeky than he is – I got C3PO and R2D2 in Santa hats). The socks I have look very similar to your BB8 Socks, which are very good quality. It may sound strange, but I like the Timeline poster the best!

    • Hi Anne. We are so glad to welcome you to the Supply Pod community! I will pass along your kind words about the timeline poster to our creative team. They spent many hours researching and designing the poster.

      • I actually was thinking about trying to make my own Star Wars timeline like this one after I saw this, but then I realized that would be super hard to do. Your creative team has done a fine job indeed! I totally believe they spent many hours and that is why I like this the best of everything else in the box. I can’t wait to see what you guys do with the X-Files theme!
