Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. The theme this month is Transform.
Mega Millionaire Shirt – Value $10?
This shirt makes me feel old because I can’t determine who is mashed up here. I see Mega-Man, but who/what is the Millionaire part?
Kirby Plush – Value $12.03 on Amazon
The big item this month, and it goes well with the theme, is this Kirby plush! Kirby has been around for a long while now – and the games are always fun to play!
Adventure Dog Sweatband – Value $5?
Jake is featured on this sweatband. This also is perfect for the theme since Jake can transform into anything he wants to!
Mutant Spider Necklace – Value $5-10?
They include this spider necklace as a call-out to Spider-Man and his transformation when getting bit by the radioactive spider.
Hero Tattoos – Value $2-3?
They include temporary tattoos featuring The Hulk and Iron Man. These are pretty large, too – probably 3 inches tall, each.
Power-Up Window Decal – Value $5?
The last item is a set of Mario window decals that help Mario transform into different suits/sizes.
Verdict: I thought 1UP Box stuck to the theme pretty well this month. While I wasn’t a huge fan of the items this month – I’m also not sure if I’m the demographic for this box – it definitely feels like a box for the younger geek! The Kirby plush is great, though!
