A-Box has some really great packaging – the Limited Edition box have higher-end versions of packaging – but even the monthly box has smaller items in smaller compartments to help get it to you in the best possible condition.

The ‘Power’ box featured items from Thor: Ragnarok, Mega Man, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Metal Gear.

Thor: Ragnarok Packable Backpack – Value $20-25?

4 items are A-Box Originals this month – the first is this backpack. I’ve seen totes that pack up into a small little bag – but this was the first backpack I’ve seen – it’s cool!

It has a simpler construction to keep it very lightweight and packable.

While it’s a pretty simple backpack, it has to be, there are still a few pockets – definitely awesome for emergency use! I was also shocked at how easily it went back into the small bag!

Star Trek: TNG Isolinear Coaster Set – Value $15-20 on Amazon

One of the non-exclusive items is a set of two coasters from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

These are acrylic and have a bit of a glow in the light – very cool detail.

Mega Man M.U.S.C.L.E. Figures – Value $6-10 (for exclusive color)?

I just received a few more M.U.S.C.L.E. figures in a Loot Crate DX not too long ago – so I’m now familiar with these little things!

I believe that the blue color is an exclusive A-Box variant since it’s listed as exclusive on the card.

If you liked all of the old toys, then this is a fun throwback!

Metal Gear Solid Snake Titan Figure – Value $7-10?

This is marked as an exclusive on the card – but I’m not sure why, as this figure is available = maybe I’m missing something?

This is part of a blind box line – so it arrives in a package.

Everyone gets Snake from Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain.

I’ve never been really into Titan vinyl figures – but they have some good ones in this line!

Thor Nordic Mythology Necklace – Value $10-15?

The final listed item is an A-Box original necklace featuring some Nordic mythology related to Thor.

It’s almost hammer-shaped, too!

It’s made with a genuine leather cord as well.

Star Wars: Rogue One Watch – Value $15-30?

I’m seeing a bunch of these pop up for resale on eBay – so I’m pulling the value from there.

The card mentions a bonus item – and this is that item!

It’s a basic wristwatch – it’s got a plastic band with a great ‘Death Trooper’ watch face.

The tin it arrives in is fantastic as well! I’m loving the Death Star lid.

Verdict: While the value is most certainly there this month, it goes down as my least favorite box from them yet – but they’re also only about 3-4 boxes in! It just didn’t hit a bunch of brands that I love to collect, so it’s really just a personal reaction to my unboxing. Overall, the box has been a fun entry into the geek box world and I still think there are some awesome things to come!

  1. The Titan is probably an exclusive paint. Loot Crate did the same with a Dragon Age Titan (marked as exclusive, but it was just a different paint).
