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!

What did you think of the February 1UP Box?

  1. The mashup is Iron Man and Mega Man. The colors of the suit and design are similar to that of the original Iron Man suit. The bar on the left is from the Mega Man games. On the character’s chest, there’s also an Arc Reactor, from Iron Man. Now why this was called “Mega Millionaire”, rather than “Mega Billionaire”, I have no idea, considering Tony Stark is a billionaire puzzles me. Hope this helped to anyone who was wondering.

  2. It’s Iron Man mashed up with Megaman. You can tell its Iron Man by the red color of the armor, and the round white Arc Reactor in the middle of his chest. It’s Megaman because of the style of drawing, he pose, and the left hand being a large blaster.

  3. I love the realistic look on the Mario decals! The t-shirt is also pretty neat =)

  4. Now that doesn’t make sense. Tony Stark isn’t a millionaire, he’s a billionaire.

    • Maybe they worth Millionaire because it made a double M like in “Mega man”? It’s just a guess xD.

  5. I’m pretty sure it’s iron man. The colors and design of the suit are similar to iron man.

  6. Might the Millionaire part of the shirt be because he’s dressed like Iron Man?

  7. I can’t figure out the millionaire part of the shirt either. No one I’ve asked knows either!

    • I believe it is an ironman mega man! I get these because I feel like there is always something in them for everyone in my family. My boyfriend loves the shirt, my daughter likes the necklace and Kirby, my son loved everything else!
