From the site:
“We’re ThinkGeek. We enjoy movies, books, and long space walks outside the vehicle. We want everyone to embrace their inner geek, and the ThinkGeek Capsule is our monthly mystery box that gives you the fun of a blind box with the security of knowing you’re getting gear hand-selected by ThinkGeek.
Each ThinkGeek Capsule is packed with $50 worth of collectibles. Items may include desktop replicas, stuff for your home, enamel pins, art prints, t-shirts, and more. Contents will vary by month, but you will ALWAYS get an exclusive t-shirt.”
Cost: 1 month plan starts at $24.99 plus $5 s/h
*SciFiChick.com received a box for review purposes.
This is ThinkGeek’s first Capsule, that shipped in June.
The box came with a list of spoilers that I decided to forgo until I went thru the box on my own.
Because pins seem to be the norm in most mystery boxes.
I received an BONUS The Name of the Wind Playing Card Deck. There were 6 possible themes. Goonies or Ghostbusters would have been great too. But as a scifi/fantasy reader, this was a great selection for me.
PINZ: Fantasy Edition Pins – I received the potion one.
Magical Mixing Pony Pint – My niece will get a kick out of using this.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Alumni Socks – I love socks. And these cute ones will be a lot of fun to wear in the fall.
Fallout 4: Helmet Coin Bank – I’m not a gamer, but this is a really fun design. It’s made of a nice, hard plastic.
ThinkGeek Promo Code – This is a great idea to get people to go buy more stuff from the site!
Zelda Tshirt – This is a fun design of the iconic game. Heads up for the ladies – the sizing is Juniors, so you may want to order 2 sizes larger if you’re older than a teen. My niece will love this shirt though, so all is not lost.
SUMMARY: This was a great first box! There’s a wide variety of wearables and collectibles, as well as a great variety of geek culture. I enjoyed several of the items in the box. And the bank and tumbler were fun, unique ideas. I’m excited to see what the next Capsule holds!
