MuchPak - June 2016

A little personal touch…

MuchPak - June 2016

Atori Biscuit Sticks (Retail $2.00) – These are labeled as “spicy” but they really aren’t. They are salty and delicious though. I’d definitely go for more of these.
Country: Thailand

Kolson Cheese Balls, Masala Flavor (Retail $1.00) – I LOVE cheese puffs, but these are quite spicy and may be a bit much for me.
Country: Pakistan

MuchPak - June 2016

Kozinaki Sunflower Seed Snack Bar (Retail $2.00) – I took a small bite of this, but it’s pretty bland for the amount of calories listed. I may offer it to a family member.
Country: Ukraine

Pei Tien Energy 99 Sticks Egg Yolk Flavor (Retail $1.00) – This “vegetarian” bar is made from “12 kinds of natural cereals by the latest technology and no preservatives, artificial flavors added.”
Country: Taiwan

MuchPak - June 2016

Lotte Waffles (Retail $2.00) – These are a cookie-like texture rather than the soft, European kind. But the flavor is still great!
Country: Korea

Lucas Skwinklote Spicy Candy (Retail $2.00) – This pineapple “flavored hot candy strip with tamarind filling” sounds intriguing.
Country: Mexico

MuchPak - June 2016

Homerun Ball Choco Flavor (Retail $3.00) – These are little pastry puffs with just a little bit of chocolate filling. Nothing like the picture. They’re still good, but not as tasty as they could be with a bit more filling.
Country: South Korea

Pei Tien Bibi Bear Rice Cake Milk Flavor (Retail $1.00) – Rice cakes aren’t my favorite, so I may offer this around the office.
Country: Taiwan

MuchPak - June 2016

Pei Tien Corn Roll (French Thick Corn Soup) (Retail $1.00) – This is like a giant puff ball (in the shape of a stick) that taste exactly like buttered corn! Really weird, but surprisingly good.
Country: Taiwan

Pelon Pelonetes Tamarindo Original Candy (Retail $2.00) – These are surprisingly tasty little candies. I’m sure my niece may swipe them.
Country: Mexico

Wonderful Roasted and Salted Whole Pistachios (Retail $3.00) – I LOVE pistachios. And I’ve bought this brand several times. I inhaled these immediately. I only wish the bag was larger!
Country: USA

MuchPak - June 2016

Worlds Sour Dudes Sour Strawz Assorted Fruit Flavors (Retail $3.00) – These are some of the best sour straws I’ve ever had! Not too sour and plenty of sweet! I’d definitely buy more of these.
Country: Turkey

Botan Rice Candy (Retail $2.00) – “Soft, chewy, slightly lemon-orange flavored candy with an outer layer of rice paper. The rice paper is clear and plastic-like when dry, but it is edible and dissolves in the mouth.” These look like individually wrapped candies. And the rice paper does look like plastic. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to stick the whole thing in my mouth when it looks like a plastic wrapper.
Country: Japan

Summary: Joselyn is a pro at packing! I could NOT get all of these snacks to fit back in this large box! There were 13 snacks (several of them with fairly large packaging) that came to a total value of about $25. So the value comes to just over the cost of the box which is great, especially when you consider the world-wide curation. The variety of items was really impressive: sweet, spicy, salty, sour, and nutty. I love trying out different snacks, and this was a really fun box with something for everyone. And the option to customize is fantastic as well. The snack scanner app is a great idea to add things to your “favorites” list or order more.

My Geek Box

SpongeBob Sandy Wacky Pack Mega Bloks (Retail $9.99) – I can’t stand SpongeBob, but my nieces and nephew will love this!

Yummy Breakfast Keychain (Retail $7) – I’m not sure what this is from or if it’s just filler, but the kids will probably think it’s cute.

My Geek Box

Ray Gun Tshirt (Retail $10?) – I have no idea what this is from or if it’s just an original design. It’s a fun design, but I wish it was any color but black. They do have womens/junior’s sizes so that’s a plus!

My Geek Box

Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Titan Figure (Retail $15) – I love the original Ghostbusters, so this will be a fun addition to my collection.

My Geek Box

Doomsday Lead Figure (Retail $25+) – These lead figures are nice and heavy figurines for display only. This has great detail and looks fantastic. As it looks sold out here in the US, the $25 is only the retail price. This was a great value addition to the box.

Summary: There isn’t a specific theme for this box, so items will always be a surprise. But the value in this box was fantastic. I’m not sure if it’s this high every month, but I’m certainly impressed. The two figures alone made this a hit for me.

Comic Bento

Ivar Timewalker: Making History (Retail $9.99) – This is new to me and about time travel – I’m excited to check it out.
Publisher: Valiant (June 2, 2015)

Comic Bento

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol (Retail $19.99) – The time travel AND Allies against the Nazis and Dinosaurs? Yes, please.
Publisher: Titan Comics (March 11, 2014)

Comic Bento

Mankind: Story of All of Us (Retail $14.99) – This one really isn’t time travel – it’s based on a History Channel show. Kind of dull. I’ll be skipping this one.
Publisher: Zenescope (November 27, 2012)

Comic Bento

X-Men: Days of Future Past (Retail $19.99) – This is the inspiration behind the film – and a fun, retro book. I also have the prose novel based on this story, but I’ll probably read this one first.
Publisher: Marvel (December 21, 2011)

Summary: 3 out of 4 titles that I’ll read and keep is great. The value is as good as always. And I LOVED the theme this month!

Loot Crate

This month’s theme was POWER.

Loot Crate

Each box comes with a nice mini mag that gives details about the items, interviews, and more.

Loot Crate Loot Crate

EXCLUSIVE Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitt (Retail $15?) – This is genius… and hysterical. I love it.

Loot Crate

EXCLUSIVE Dragon Ball Z Shenron Plush Keychain (Retail $3-5?) – This really isn’t a keychain as it’s a plastic hoop. It’s more like a strange plush toy for a child or dog. Though, Lois Lane wouldn’t care about it since it doesn’t have a squeaker in it.

LootPin – A new one each month for collectors… or hoarders.

Loot Crate

EXCLUSIVE Warcraft Tshirt (Retail $10?) – Just in time to wear to the movie release! I haven’t played the game, but the trailers look great – so, I’m excited to see it. This is a clever design on a really soft shirt that I’ll definitely get use out of.

Loot Crate

Hulk Q-Fig (Retail $10+ on Amazon) – I haven’t heard of Q-Figs before. But then, I only really collect Funko POPs. This is a really cool figure for Hulk fans though. I can’t decide if I’ll keep it or save it for my nephew for his birthday.

Loot Crate

Summary: While there wasn’t a Funko POP figure, I really like this Q-Fig for something different. And the great shirt and oven mitt made this box a hit for me.

Next month’s theme is: Dystopia (logos of The Matrix, Fallout, RoboCop, Terminator 2, and Bioshock all shown in the email.)

Box Review: Bam Box – May 2016

Bam Box

The Bam Box was founded in 2015 by Bloof, the same team of geeks, comic book lovers and pop culture collectors that started ComiconAuction.com. We love collecting. We love the thrill of it, the mystery of it and especially that feeling you get when you have a collectible in your hands that you are really excited about. So we set out to bring something different to everyone.

There are some great subscription boxes on the market, but we felt there was still something missing. We went to the drawing board with the goal of creating the box we would want to show up on our doorstep. After a lot of ideas and prototypes we arrived at the Bam Box. From the design of the box to the items inside to the instant winners we send out, we accomplished what we wanted to do: give you the subscription box we would be jealous of.”

Cost: 1 month plan starts at $24.99 plus $7.99 s/h

SciFiChick.com received a box for review purposes.

Bam Box

The box comes with a half sheet, full-color information on what’s in the box.
This month’s theme was ABILITIES!
Right away, I knew I was going to enjoy this one!

Bam Box

Spider-Mander Pin – One of the unique and fun things about this box is that they offer 1-Up variants of some of the items in the box! I scored a Gold version of the pin (limited to 250).

Bam Box

Tony Todd “Zoom” Signed Photograph (Retail $20?) – Signed prints usually go for about $20 each at conventions. And signed items in Bam Boxes always come with a card of authenticity. Fans of Flash will appreciate this cool item.

Bam Box

EXCLUSIVE “The Wolverine” Print, signed by Rick Martin This is a very cool piece, signed and numbered by the artist. I love this one.

Bam Box

“One Ring” from the Lord of the Rings (Retail $10-15?) – 600 lucky people received a 1-Up for a gold-plated version! Still, this is a fun replica even as the black variant.

Bam Box

Google Cardboard VR Viewer (Retail $15) – I’ve had a lot of fun with this little gadget. It took me a while to find a QR code that worked to stop double-vision, but now it works like a charm. There are several free VR apps that work with it that I can’t wait to try out.

Bam Box
Bam Box

Magnetic Thinking Putty (Retail $10) – This was another great item too. The texture of the putty is like silly putty, but magnetic. So, when you get the little magnet close to it, the magnet snaps to the putty and slides through – embedding itself. It’s fun for all ages – I’m sure my niece or nephew will try to confiscate it.

Bam Box – Magnetic Putty

Summary:This month was a great month of curation and value! At first glance, there didn’t seem like much in the box. Surprisingly, I liked both of the signed prints and the cardboard VR viewer was not something would’ve ever bought for myself but ended up really enjoying it. Finds like this are what makes mystery boxes so much fun.

1Up Box

This month’s theme was RPG!

1Up Box

The box comes with a nice flyer detailing the items included in this month’s selection.

1Up Box

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.

1Up Box

EXCLUSIVE Viking Pin (Retail $2-3?) – Cute little design that my niece or nephew may want to pin on their backpack.

Vault Bookmark – This is a fun, holographic bookmark.

1Up Box

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.

1Up Box

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!

Remember, use Coupon: AWESOME to get your first month for just $9.92 + S/H of 1Up Box!
