Star Wars Jelly Belly – $1.95 on Amazon

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.
Here’s the kit without the band around it.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
