March's box had a theme! The theme was CYBORGS - and hinted at 4 franchises in the box.
Ghost in the Shell Shirt - Value $15?
This month's exclusive shirt features the super-popular, and upcoming movie, Ghost in the Shell. The graphic is huge on the tee, taking up most of the front of the shirt.
Cyborg Martini Shaker - Value $15?
There are two Cyborg bar items this month, the first is a Martini Shaker.
I think this was a good idea, but it's not the best quality. Everything is plastic and doesn't feel like a high-value item - but it's also top-rack dishwasher safe and microwave safe.
Cyborg Bar Mat - Value $5-10?
To go with your shaker, you'll get a Cyborg branded bar towel.
It's got an embroidered Cyborg logo, but other than that, it's a normal towel - but it creates an interesting set that I didn't expect to see in the box.
Star Trek Borg Ship Pin - Value $9.95
This pin is HUGE! It comes in at 2.25 inches tall and features the Borg Cube Ship from Star Trek - easily one of the cooler pins that we have received.
Judge Dredd Travel Pass - Value $13 on Amazon
I was surprised to see a $13 value for this item - I think that's overpriced for sure.
This is just a thin piece os plastic with clear plastic inserts to hold a few cards.
Wild West vs The Future Art Print - Value $10?
The last item in the box is a Westworld print.
The print itself is unique - the gun has a bit of a 3D feel since it pops out from the page - it was hard to capture with a picture.
It also came in a protective plastic sleeve to keep it protected during shipping.
Verdict: This box was hit and miss for me. I really want to like the Cyborg shaker, because it's a unique idea, but I think the quality just isn't quite there for me to be really excited about it. But all of the other items, barring the Judge Dredd badge, were unique and high-quality - so, like I said, I'm just torn!
