Spring 2018 “The North and Beyond The Wall” Game of Thrones Box Review

This quarter’s delivery features a bunch of items from House Stark and everything to their North.

You’ll get an information card that details the items in your box.

Hold The Door Shirt – Value $15?

This is only the second shirt from the box, but I already have a good feeling that I’m really going to like each one – because this is another hit for me.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a GoT fan – but SPOILER ALERT – this features poor Hodor’s collapse into his current state by saving Bran.

The only other bit is this bottom tag on the front.

House Stark Scarf – Value $20-25?

Culturefly has been really good at Cosplay-style items across their boxes – and this scarf definitely falls into that category.

It has faux fur around the neck, with these leather (possibly faux-leather, I’m not sure) squares down the side.

You’ll see the sigil and the show’s logo on the front as well.

Here it is, front and center. It could probably be used as an actual scarf. but it’s much better in a Cosplay sense.

Three-Eyed Raven Vinyl Figure – Value $20?

The second vinyl figure from the Game of Thrones box is another animal of the realm – and a special animal at that – the three-eyed raven.

It’s around 5 inches tall and has a good weight and detail about it. Culturefly is very good at their vinyl exclusive game!

House Stark Enamel Pin – Value $15-20?

Thankfully, we get a second gigantic house banner pin to add to the previous boxes’ House Greyjoy pin!

These “pins” are gigantic – 4 inches tall and 2 inches wide! They’re hefty as well, I’ve been simply keeping them in their window cases for display!

Things Jon Snow Knows Notebook – Value $15?

Ready to reveal what Jon Snow knows?

NOTHING! “You know nothing Jon Snow” – I thought this was a bit of a geeky-funny take on a Game of Thrones notebook.

This notebook is a blank slate for sketches or writing. It’s also a really well-made hardback binding, it’ll hold up!

Westeros Sigil Coaster Set – Value – Value $15-20?

This item is one that I would’ve expected to see in the Westeros box, but I always have room for sigil coasters at the office.

It’s a set of 5 house sigil coasters.

Each has a cork bottom and is a tiny bit flexible.

Wun Wun Bottle Opener – Value $10?

Wun Wun is here for you when you need to crack open a beverage!

It could be a great idea to glue a magnet onto the back of this – then you’ll be able to store it on the fridge!

King In The North Print -Value $10?

The final item is an exclusive print. It features Jon Snow and is printed on a thicker glossy cardstock. It’s ready for framing, I’d say.

Verdict: I’m a fan of the shirt, vinyl figure, and gigantic pin. That’s only about half of the items in the box though. Overall, I really wasn’t blown away like I was for the first box – and while I’ll get some use out of the coasters and notebook – this box just didn’t seem to hit the right notes for me this quarter.

  1. I agree with you! Nothing nearly as cool as the fun stuff in the Harry Potter boxes. I found the box random and kinda odd when there’s so many magical and amazing elements in the series. I liked the three-eyed raven the best.

  2. Thanks for a thoughtful review. Interestingly, I like the more practical items, like the notebook and coasters. The bottle opener! The coasters would be great for having friends over next season- viewing party time! It’s the collectible items that don’t work with my life. I think they are trying to strike a balance?

  3. I liked everything in this box except for the scarf. Who needs scarf in May?!! I understand it goes with the box’s theme, but it’s just a weird item, very stiff, and I thought exactly the same thing- it’s good for cosplay but it’s totally unusable in real life, looks kind of cheap too, has a very weird smell, and you can’t even wrap in around your neck with all those leather plates everywhere. 🙁

    • I just wanted to point out that typically cosplay items do not equate to “everyday practical items”. Because this is obviously geared towards cosplay, I would never expect it to be practical for my everyday life.
