Like the last box – the Fall box features a ton of Walking Dead items.
It comes with a card that features a tiny bit of item description – but not a ton.
TWD Glow in the Dark Shirt – Value $20 based on their store values
The first time is a new shirt features a glow in the dark ‘TWD’ text. It’s a simple but effective design – and I like the text in the vertical format!
Lucille Pin – Value $10
Lucille and Negan get some representation with a black and white Lucille pin! I’m not sure if this is exclusive to the box – but they only offer the color version in their store.
Megabox Pin – Value $5-10?
You’ll also get a pin featuring the Megabox logo.
Dwight Lucille Patrol Figure – Value $30-35 based on the previous figure?
The Summer box added an exclusive Jesus figure to the Shiva Force figure set – this quarter starts of a new set with the very first figure from the Lucille Patrol set!
I’ve always loved the detail on McFarlane toys, building sets, and statues! Dwight looks just like his comic book self.
Like all McFarlane toys – it’s got a lot of articulation too, even at the wrists, so you can pose them as you like.
I’m excited to see who the other 4 characters will be in Lucille Patrol!
The Walking Dead #171 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover
The last Walking Dead item is a copy of issue #171 – featuring a Megabox exclusive cover!
This issue introduces the “Princess of Pittsburgh” – which is awesome in so many ways – it’s crazy to see my hometown depicted in the Walking Dead universe!
Gasolina #1 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover
The second of three comics is the first issue of Gasolina.
I’m absolutely loving the art style of this comic. Like most Skybound books – it’s a mature read!
Fugitives. Rebels. Newlyweds. In their journey south from El Norte, Amalia and Randy have played many roles in order to survive. Now, they must become unlikely leaders in the fight against a new cartel who uses inhuman tactics to ignite the most monstrous war Mexico—and the world—has ever seen.
Slots #1 – Value $3.99 + exclusive variant cover
My least favorite – but still good! – comic of the month was issue #1 of Slots.
This one was more of a one-man-show. The story just didn’t grip me as much as Gasolina.
You can say this about the life of Stanley Dance: he did it his way. Unfortunately, his way never took getting old into account. Now, the former boxer is on his last legs, looking for redemption…but he’ll settle for going down swinging. Roll the dice with superstar artist DAN PANOSIAN as he creates a bold and breathtaking vision of Las Vegas, where everything old can become new, and superstition influences how the chips fall.
Verdict: So far, you’re going to have to love The Walking Dead to find the value in the Skybound MegaBox. Luckily for me, I do, and I’m loving box #2! As a fan and a figure/statue collector – this box hits all the notes for me, so I’m not surprised that I’m such a fanboy so far – I’m already excited for the Winter box!
