The Fight theme had two main focuses – Marvel and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It will include an information card with details about each item.

Each month includes a theme button as well.

Super Tacos Shirt – Value $15?

Now, I’m typically not the biggest “mash-up” t-shirt fan, but I really love this one. I mean, taco clouds?? Yes!

It also helps that 1UP Box’s shirt are just super comfortable!

Rip Spin Warrior – Value $10 on Amazon

I had received a Michaelangelo Rip Spin Warrior in my February Toy Box Monthly – so I was already familiar with this toy.

Pull the rip cord to battle a fellow Rip Spin Warrior until one wins.

I got Raphael, but you could have received Superman, Batman, and Aquaman to name just a few.

TMNT Light Up Yoyo – Value $5 on Amazon

Next, you’d receive a light up Yoyo featuring The Avengers of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I got TMNT – and it featured Leo on the front and Mikey on the back.

Sanctorum Sticker – Value $3?

You’ll get a Doctor Strange inspired sticker featuring Spidey in a web-like sticker.

The Legends of Heart Print – Value $10?

The final item is a print featuring Link.

The material is almost like a vinyl material – I even tried to peel it thinking it was a sticker. Overall, a nicely done graphic!

Verdict: If you like their shirts then that will pretty much cover the cost of the box every month – and their shirts are always comfy, even if I don’t love them each month. Aside from the shirt, I didn’t really love the items this month – it felt like it was lacking a highlight for sure. With that being, the value is definitely over the cost of the box, though.

What did you think of the August 2017 1UP Box?

  1. I definitely think 1Up has the best quality of T-shirts! The t-shirts in Loot Crate tend to shrink or become misshaped in the laundry, but 1Up’s will last forever!
