Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - all items

This month’s box was in collaboration with Phoenix Comicon and was based on Space Exploration. This is also the first box not based on a popular movie release.

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - shirt

Phoenix Comicon Constellation Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt is a call out to the Phoenix Comicon logo. That Comicon just finished up on June 5th – did anyone in the area attend?

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - solar rover

Solar Rover – Value $10.99 on Amazon

The second item is a buildable Solar Rover! This goes along nicely with one of my favorite items from their first box – the Weather Station. I think items like this can separate this box from other boxes – and they’re fun for kids to build!

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - metal space shuttle

Metal Earth Space Shuttle – Value $20.99 on Amazon

They include a metal model to put together as well. This one is a Space Shuttle. I see these metal models everywhere now – they’re becoming more and more popular. I tried to put together a Halo helmet metal model, but my hands were too big to deal with the small intricacies of the model 🙁

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - astronaut ice cream

Astronaut Ice Cream – Value $6.15 on Amazon

We had received an Astronaut Ice Cream Sandwich in the first ever box – that was my first taste of it! With that in mind, I was excited to get another taste of ice cream – it’s great!

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - Mars Attacks comic

Mars Attacks #3 – Value $3.99

This issue is an exclusive variant cover from Phoenix Comicon and Supply Pod! I haven’t read any Mars Attacks comics as of yet. I loved the movie (and still do) and love IDW comics, so it might be a perfect match for me!

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - space blanket

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - blanket open

Space Blanket – Value $6-7?

The next item is a thermal blanket. There wasn’t much information with this item, but this is what I’ve found on Amazon about it:

  • Rescue Blanket provides compact emergency protection in all weather condition
  • Made of durable insulation Myalr material
  • Retains/reflects 90% of body heat
  • Waterproof and weatherproof

Really cool – and useful as a “just in case” item.

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - lanyard

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - lanyard close up

Lanyard – value $5?

They included a lanyard to take to the Comicon (FYI: this box did arrive before the Phoenix Comicon).

Supply Pod Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - infographic poster

Infographic Poster – Value $10?

The final item is this infographic poster. It seems as though you can expect one of these in all Supply Pods as they consistently show up. They’re well done, and on a thicker paper, so they’re great for display.

Verdict: This was a good box from Supply Pod. It was also their first box that doesn’t focus on something in the geek pop culture world. They seem to be consistent with value and keeping to a theme – but it seems like a box where you’ll want to know the theme before taking the dive. Overall, I’ve liked this box through the first 5 boxes because it’s geeky but unique – hopefully, they return to the geek pop culture world for the August box!

What did you think of the June Supply Pod? Did you make it to Phoenix Comicon?

  1. Thanks everyone for the great feedback! We had a great time at Phoenix Comicon as well!

  2. Can you try a tweezers, needle-nosed pliers, or similar tools to put the metal model together?

  3. My sister went to Phoenix Comic Con. She got to meet James Marsters too. It looked like tons of fun. I was super jealous.

  4. I worked at Phoenix Comicon over the weekend (still recovering!). I got a chance to go to Supply Pod’s booth wearing the shirt and they gave me the choice of a bunch of different prizes. I chose the R2-D2 portable charger because, duh. My daughter was with me and they offered her a prize, too. She picked the Dana Skully POP! figure because I audibly gasped when I saw it. Then she ended up keeping it for herself. Dang kid.

    It was a great Con! My daughter is a huge BTVS fan. James Marsters was there, so she cosplayed as Spike. During her autograph op, he filmed her stating her name and her cosplay. You can watch the video on his Facebook page. She’s the adorable blond vampire at 2:02. Best day of her life!

    • They are super nice! Thanks for sharing what prize you got! I hope they come to Wizardcom in Chicago in August!

    • He is so awesome! I’m glad he helped make the day extra special for your daughter. Makes me love him even more!

  5. I didn’t get the infographic poster! I was wondering where that was because I was expecting one. Its usually one of the things I like best about the box. I think I will send them a message about it because I would like it.

    It was an interesting box and I still love it. I like the model and will try and put it together. The space blanket I am putting in the car for emergency purposes. The solar car is awesome and I am going to gift it to my niece and nephew.

    I can always use the lanyard. I really like the design of the shirt too – my husband remarked on how cool it looked. I haven’t read the comic, but I hope to.

    The ice cream was pretty tasty – it was kind of weird, but I liked it.

    I did not go to Phoenix Comicon because its too far from me, but I wish I could. This was a cool and different box. I hope it helps to keep Supply Pod going!

    • Hi Anne,
