ComicCon Boxis “a premium monthly box service that brings everything Comic Con to the doorsteps of fans.” The price is $29.99 plus shipping.
This month’s theme was “Star Box.”
2 Star Wars: Vader Down #1 Variants (Retail $4.99 each) – Not sure why they bothered with 2 variants. I can’t imagine most people would care for this. I’m keeping one and getting rid of the other.
Excusive Metallic Metroid Samus (Retail $?) – Another toss for me, since no one I know even knows who this is.
Star Wars Connexions Collectible Trading Discs and Game with BB-8 Disc (Retail ? – you can’t even buy 1 at a time at Walmart as far as I can see) – Cheepo Star Wars filler.
Star Wars Kylo Ren Earbuds (Retail $10.99) – These are fun. I may keep these, though I have more than enough earbuds.
Random filler that has nothing to do with the theme:
The Walking Dead #1 comic (Retail $2.99) – Pass.
Home #1 Lighter than Air (Retail $2.50) – Flipped through this and tossing as well.
Helifun Copters (Retail $1?) – Looks like something from the dollar store.
Dark Side B Tshirt (Retail $10?) – This is one of my least favorite Star Wars shirt designs. I already have plenty. So, this will be finding a new home too.
Summary: This month was crap. I opened the box and immediately was disappointed not seeing so much as a Funko POP. The past 2 months have been major letdowns. I’m skipping next month’s “Vengeance” box. And if February doesn’t impress, I’ll probably be dropping this sub. It used to be one of my favorites. But 2 month’s of filler and not even hitting the value of the cost of the box is just ridiculous. Just include a Funko POP and a graphic novel, and I’m a happy gal.
