Good To Know: This box doesn’t have info cards.
It was nice to see some new packaging from Powered Geek Box – they’ve moved away from their black boxes to a more fun box featuring some of the best characters in video games and comics.
This was also the very first month with a theme! The theme was Villains.
Godzilla Shirt – Value $12 on Amazon
This month’s shirt features Godzilla. I can see Godzilla as both a hero and a villain – but in the case of this shirt, he’s most definitely a villain!
The Joker POP – Value $8 on Amazon
The Joker is the ultimate villain in my book. This is Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad. I’ve still yet to see the movie, but I’ve heard mixed reviews from comic fans and non-comic fans. I’ll do my best to go in with an open mind!
DC Original Minis – Value $6 on Amazon
My next item was also from Suicide Squad – it’s a DC Original Mini blind bag.
I got The Joker once again – no complaints here!
Murloc Pocket POP – Value $7 on Amazon
We got a second Funko item this month – this time, it’s a Pocket POP from World of Warcraft. I got Murloc, but I would guess there’s some variation with this item. Who did you get? I really like Pocket POPs – they’re easily my favorite Funko item behind POPs. The keychain will easy unscrew, and you have yourself a mini POP.
Batman Villains Playing Cards – Value $7 on Amazon
It’s pretty common to get a deck of playing cards in geek boxes lately – but few have been as awesome as this deck.
Here’s a small sampling of the cards. The villains are shown in all their different forms, too! Just in this picture, you’ll find The Joker from the Arkham games, New 52, Animated Series, and the classic comics! These are just awesome!
Joker Air Freshener – Value $10 on Amazon
The final Joker item I received this month was this air freshener. The scent was not very good – but it’s the Joker, so I’d probably still display it.
Hydra Pin – Value $5 on Amazon
The ultimate evil organization in the Marvel Universe – Hydra! Show your allegiance with this mini pin.
I Love Harley Quinn Sticker – Value $1-2?
The final item is a Harley Quinn sticker – I’m not a fan of Harley, but it’s a cool looking sticker.
Verdict: My values come to around $57 – which is decent for a box costing me $40 shipped. This box is hard to predict, though. While this month was the first with a theme, the spoiler released included all kinds of villains, including ones that were not seen in this box – so it’s still kind of a toss-up at the moment. Overall, it was a good box for me – all the Joker items probably put it over-the-top for myself, but a lot of the non-DC items we not in my wheelhouse.
What did you think of the August Powered Geek Box?
