Legend Of Zelda Shirt – Value $15
This month’s exclusive shirt features Legend of Zelda. Someone mentioned it in a past review, but wow – gamer boxes send A LOT of Zelda items. That makes it a little tough for me since I’m not a huge fan. I do like the graphic, though – very cool.
Durotan Plush – Value $20
They include a Bleacher Creature plush from Warcraft as well. I think I’ve said this about every Bleacher Creature plush – I just do not like the look of these!
Super Mario Bros. Build a Level Magnet Set – Value $12 on Amazon
This is easily my favorite this month! Build your own level in Super Mario Bros with this 2-piece magnet set. I’m loving the little character model magnets!
Zelda Life Hearts Stickers – Value $5?
This is an exclusive this month – it’s a bumper sticker of Zelda HP.
NES Controller Pin – Value $5-10?
My second favorite item is this pin. I don’t really have a good use for pins – but thanks to Jay in my Nerd Block Classic review for his idea to snap the pin off the back, attach a magnet, and stick it on the fridge! I really loved the detail on this magnet – really well done.
Plants vs Zombies Lunchbox – Value $10-15?
The final item was also an exclusive item. It’s a really nice lunchbox/tin with great colors and graphs – this would be great for kids!
Verdict: This month was a bit of a miss for me, personally. My favorite items were some of the smallest items in the box. There’s definitely value here, though, for NES/Zelda fans – which is a lot of people, so I’m sure I’m in the minority on this verdict.
