ThinkGeek’s third capsule includes items from Doctor Who, Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them, Power Rangers, and the upcoming Justice League movie.

It comes with a large fold our information card that details the items in the box, along with possible variants that you may or may have not received.

Tardis Shirt – Value $15?

You’ll find an 8 inch tall Tardis in your box, open it up to reveal this month’s exclusive t-shirt!

It’s a nice design that focuses directly on the Tardis and not any specific Doctor – the box is awesome as well, definitely worth keeping around!

Batman Justice League POP – Value $8-11 on Amazon

You’ll receive one of six Justice League POPs – Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, and possible movie spoiler – Superman.

I got Batman with his high-tech suit to make up for not having any super powers. While it’s a pretty basic Batman sculpt, I do like how the cape lays.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Ruled Notebook – Value $7-8 on Amazon

There are two variations to the ruled notebook featuring the latest J.K. Rowling entry into the Harry WOrld universe – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

It was a hardback cover with this fun cityscape print.

Inside, you’ll have 192 pages to work with!

Pinz: Cats in Cosplay Edition – Value $5-10?

This month’s exclusive pin collectible features 7 ‘Cats in Cosplay’ variations.

I got this little steampunk cat! The pins are great quality – if you’re familiar with Geek Fuel’s pin line, then you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Retro Travel Tag – Value $10-15?

Another exclusive in this month’s box is a class floppy disk travel tag.

It has a 360-degree design to really bring back good or bad nostalgia. I still remember loading like 20 of these puppies for one application!

Your details are protected by a plastic cover, just slide it out; fill out your details and you’re on your way.

ThinkGeek Promo Code – Value $5-100

As always, the last item in the box is a promo code to buy more geeky goods from ThinkGeek.

Head over to the thinkgeekcapsule.com/reveal to reveal how much your gift card is worth. For the 3rd month straight, I received the lowest value – $5 – but it’s still a nice perk if you shop there frequently.

If you ordered the first 3 capsules up front, you’d receive a bonus item in each of those capsules.

Power Rangers Helmet Collector Clips – Value $7 on eBay

The third bonus item is a Power Rangers blind bag item.

Each blind bag contains a miniature Power Ranger helmet – as you can see, I pulled the yellow Ranger. They’re about 2 inches tall – so this will be going on your backpack and not your keys.

Verdict: I think I’m in the same place that I’ve been at with the past two deliveries – the value is definitely there, a lot of the items are fun, but there wasn’t that one hero item that really stood out to me again.

What do you think of the third ThinkGeek Capsule? Is it the best of the three deliveries?

  1. I’m totally diggin that floppy disk luggage tag! Ah, nostalgia….

  2. This was the last box they are doing right? There won’t be another in September?

  3. i got my box missing the cat pin and emailed them Monday and still haven’t heard back. I am so far not pleased with my experience.

  4. Are the cat pins a box exclusive or can you buy them somewhere?
    Must…buy..cat…pins.

    • They’re exclusive to the box – not sure if they’ll become available in the future or not.

  5. My issue with this box is they have SO MUCH amazing stuff to chose from but they send out what amounts to a box of cast offs and clearance items. It’s entirely disappointing.
