These 7 items are intended to be convention exclusives that you could only get at the convention in Orlando.
Like every block, it comes with a card detailing each item.
SWCO17 Shirt – Value $15?
The first item is one of my favorite shirts ever! The shirt meshes together all of your favorite characters over the past 40 years!
It’s branded with the convention logo on the back as well.
40th Anniversary Mug – Value $15-20?
Next up is the 40th-anniversary mug.
As a major coffee drinker, I own a lot of geeky mugs – this one is gonna be up there with my favorites.
Ponda Baba Oven Mitt – Value $15?
Bonus points for people who picked Ponda Baba to get an item in the box.
This is a basic oven mitt – it will be identical to past oven mitts from Nerd Block.
Death Star Beach Ball – Value $10?
I won’t take credit for this – but this beach ball is as easy to blow up as the real Death Star!
Anyways, It’s got the SWCO17 logo on the reverse side.
And, of course, all of the basics of a beachball.
Boba Fett Beanie Character – Value $10-15?
These are essentially hacky-sacks of some of the best Star Wars characters. You’d get Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Yoda, Chewy, Kylo Ren, BB8, or a Stormtrooper.
here’s a better look – it’s definitely filled like a beanie baby – it’s not filled to the max, allowing it to sit in any position you’d like.
Pin 3-Pack – Value $15-20?
This might be my favorite item of the box – there are 5 different sets of 3-pack pins that you could receive.
The different packs or pins span across different movies or type of characters, like droids. While it’s not my favorite era, or anyone’s favorite if we’re being honest, I got the Episode 1-3 era pins.
40th Anniversary Yavin Medal Lanyard – Value $10-15?
Be like Han, Luke, and Chewy and give yourself a Star Wars medal!
This was one of the items spoiled while it was still available for purchase – it can come in use for future Cons.
Verdict: I like a lot of the items in this box, but at the $90 price point I can definitely say that I expected something more – or at least a big-ticket hero item. It’s tough to value these items since they’re all exclusive – and Con exclusive are typically more valuable – so I think the value is going to be up to you more than my guesstimates.
