A-Box is a brand new entry into the Geek Box category! Their goal is to deliver premium geeky goods with authentic, licensed, and/or exclusive items with a promised value of over $70 in each box.
They have a monthly option - but this is a review of the Limited Edition Alien Covenant Box - which you can still get if your order before Friday, June 16!
A-Box sent us this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Before I move along - I wanted to quickly touch on how great the packaging is. It has that Apple product feel where everything is compartmentalized, sleek, and streamline - nicely done.
The Subscription Box: Limited Edition Alien Covenant Box
The Cost: $55 + $7 S/H
The Products: Authentic licensed exclusives from the Alien Covenant movie - with a value of $150 based on MSRP.

Yes - you're seeing this correctly - it has one of the best items in a subscription box I've ever seen! Read on for more details!
As you've come to expect - you'll get an information card with details about each item in the box.
Let's just jump right to the ultimate highlight of this box:
Alien Facehugger Poseable Lifesize Replica - Value $60-65 based on similar replica
First up - the single greatest item I've received in a geek box - a 4-foot Alien Facehugger!
It's similar to the NECA facehugger - but with a little more detailed paint job on the outer body, but a less detailed paint job on the underside - so it kind of evens out.
It's a foam rubber material and everything is bendable - so go to town a recreate your favorite scenes!
How could we not!?!?!
After you're done having fun with it - you'll also find out that it has a Certificate of Authenticity.
Facehugger Shirt - Value $15?
You'll get an exclusively printed shirt featuring a Facehugger.
Awesome and simple design - I'm loving the basic red on black scheme as well.
It's also licensed, so it features the Alien: Covenant logo on the sleeve.
USCSS Covenant Hat - value $15-20?
You'll also receive a crew member hat.
It's got a patch-like print that features the ship itself.
It's velcro in the back, so one size will fit all.
Keychain Facehugger Bottle Opener - Value $10-15?
Getting back to the Facehugger track - you'll also get a keychain bottle opener.
It's sturdy and thick metal - this will definitely hold up over time.
Pin Badge Set - Value $30-40?
Enamel pins are growing in popularity in the geek box market, so I see the resale value of these going up and up. This box includes and exclusive set of crew badge pins!
Represent your favorite crew with 6 to choose from. We've started a pin board - so we'll be adding them there!
Verdict: My ballparked values come to around $155, which is right in the promised value ballpark (pats self on back). More importantly - this really feels like a limited edition box! From the unboxing experience to the unique products, it was just plain incredible. Even better - there is certainly no need to debate whether this box had a hero item or not!
Don't forget - if you want this box - order by Friday, June 16th to get yours!
