Winter 2018 Walking Dead Supply Drop Review
Included with this drop was a fold out information sheet.
It had a summary of all the items inside.
Carol and King Ezekiel Collectable Pins
Carol was always one of the most interesting characters in the show for me personally. She has quite an arc! This pin set has her and her love, King Ezekiel. I wish his pet tiger Shiva was included! The Carol pin makes me really miss her short hair.
Daryl Dixon Winged Hoodie
I am more than sure this hoodie made a ton of subscribers very happy this quarter! So many people absolutely love Daryl Dixon and this well-detailed sweatshirt is an excellent tribute to his winged vest. I like that it is very wearable and subtle, while still being incredibly iconic when it comes to this franchise. It is a heavier weight and super warm!
Art Print with Certificate of Authenticity
This print is really very cool! I love the style chosen by the artist Tracie Ching. The minimal color palette and engravers style really works for this trio of our favorite characters. There is also a red variant included in a handful of boxes that is super rare! We received the orange one, which I actually prefer, personally. Included is a certificate of authenticity, which this box tends to send with its more unique offerings.
The Art of Peace Official Prop Replica
The Art of Peace is an iconic work by Morihei Ueshiba. It was also a source of comfort and clarity for Morgan that completely changed his outlook on life after the death of his wife and son. What makes this version of it unique is that it comes with a cool box and bookmark!
Like our hoodie above, I feel like Daryl would be totally into this beanie. Again, this accessory is not over the top branded, which for someone like myself, makes it even better. I don’t often tend to broadcast my fandoms in how I dress, but I love a cleverly themed item that only other true fans would recognize! This beanie is quite warm and has a sharp blend of both black and grey yards. The faux leather patch simply states “TWD”.
TWD Wrapping Paper
I thought this final item was super clever! It is a set of 5 different wrapping paper sheets that are all Walking Dead themed. Although a few of them are obviously Christmas themed and might have to wait to be used until next December, the blue and green ones could be used any time. My personal favorite would have to be the zombies in Santa hats!
Verdict: This box had a really great mix of items for any Walking Dead enthusiast. You get two wearables (hat and hoodie) along with collectors pins, an art piece, a thoughtful prop replica book, and wrapping paper if you feel like gifting any of the items. The curators did a great job of including items that touched on many different characters, so at least one of your favorites was likely to be included. One of my favorite things about this box is that you get some really interesting items you wouldn’t be able to source anywhere else, like the art print. The exact value of this box is hard to pinpoint because the items themselves are exclusives, but I know that a good hoodie can run at least $25-$30 at a minimum and limited art prints can be really expensive too. Though I do not have numbers to offer, the value of this box is really easy to see that it is a good value for it’s $50 price tag.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: Taking into account the $49.95 box cost + $6.99 shipping, each of the 6 items included in this box has an average cost of $9.49.
