They changed the info pamphlet a little bit from the first box. It’s now this horizontal style instead of vertical.
It fully opens up to give you all the details about where to find the bonus content for the Power box.
With all of the item information on the flip side.
This month’s pin is from Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment. This was the first spoiler of the box, and I was thrilled to see that it simply replaces the monthly pin and wasn’t one item this month.
Skeletor Long Sleeve Shirt – Value $15-20?
This is a 65% polyster/35% cotton mix work out shirt. I LOVE the design! This really brings me back- I like the material of this shirt, but I tend to like more breathable, performance/workout material slothing to begin with.
Captain America Snapback – Value $15-20?
With Civil War being a big focus of this box, the Captain America item is a snapback hat. A snapback hat is my least favorite kind of hat, but I can see how it’s really the only way to include a hat that fits all subscribers. having said that, the hat is awesome! I love the simple design and the protruding Captain America shield.
I also like that the back portion of the hat is perforated and breathable.
Hulk Lithograph – Value $10?
They include am 8×10 Hulk lithograph print. It’s got some cool textures since it’s a lithograph – which also makes it more unique. I like the print, but I wouldn’t expect a print or lithograph in a deluxe geek box.
Street Fighter Duffel Bag – Value $25-30?
The next item is this Street Fighter branded duffel bag. This is a decently sized duffel, I’d probably call it a medium sized bag, and I love the graphic. It has 2 outer zip pockets and 3 outer mesh pockets.
The lithograph is 8×10, so I wanted to include it to show the size of the duffel bag. It’s not too small, but it’s definitely not big either.
6″ Light Up Iran Man Figure – Value $30-35?
Right off the bat, this is a cool item – but I cannot figure out why they chose an Iron Man 2 branded item as opposed to a Civil War based item. Maybe I’m just being too critical?
This figure is all metal and is modeled after the Mark V Iron man suit. That’s also what makes it exclusive!
There’s a little button to press and light up his arc reactor!
Verdict: I really liked most of the items this month, and felt that it was a step up from the initial box last month. I really hope that they reconsider sending out prints in these high-value boxes, I have a tough time putting a value on a print in a box, but maybe I’m alone on that? Outside of that, the other 4 items were both awesome. It took a while for the core crate to build up and become awesome – so I think a lot of their new boxes are heading in the right direction – Loot Crate DX included.
