*SciFiChick.com received a complimentary box in exchange for an honest review.
This month’s theme was RPG!
The box comes with a nice flyer detailing the items included in this month’s selection.
World of Warcraft: Sylvanas Funko POP! (Retail $10.79) – There were 3 options that subscribers could receive from WOW. This was my favorite of the 3, so I was happy to get this one.
EXCLUSIVE Viking Pin (Retail $2-3?) – Cute little design that my niece or nephew may want to pin on their backpack. But now that I look at it… looks like that one helmet from the Elder Scrolls series. My nephew was trying out some New eso sorcerer build and I could have sworn I saw this helmet on one of his friends. If that’s the case you could probably get away with giving this to an Elder Scrolls fan.
Vault Bookmark – This is a fun, holographic bookmark for anyone who is a fan of the Fallout series. Not sure if my nephew has played that but I’ll find out soon enough.
Assassin Emoji Stickers (Retail $1?) – A page of 6, large stickers for the young gamer in your life. My niece loves emojis, so she’ll get a kick out of these.
1Up May 2016 RPG Pin – This is a little collector pin that must come each month.
EXCLUSIVE 1Up Buddies TShirt: The Furry Assassins (Retail $10?) – This is a super-cute design on a nice shade of pale blue. And the shirts come in women’s (junior) sizing! They do run small, so order a size or two larger than normal.
Summary: This month’s box was really small, but I was surprised they were still able to fit a POP and shirt in it. The value comes in just over the $20 price tag, so it’s a decent value. And it’s one of the most inexpensive geeky boxes I’ve see so far. Cheaper, if you buy multiple months at a time. And, of course, I’m partial to boxes that include Funko POPs!
