Finally! We have the long awaited Custom Fan Box that has been bombarding the internet with ad after ad for a solid month. Other than the ads, and what little information we could get off their website… the only thing anyone really knew about the contents of this box is the T-Shirt they let you pick when you order. For those who don’t know, Custom Fan Box runs $30 shipped and you select your T-Shirt at the time of order. Then you choose from a grouping of themes of movies, games, comics, etc that interest you and the box is then custom tailored to your likes. So what does a box look like? …well check it out for yourself…
So was it what you expected? I’ve seen a few other people’s boxes and they were all very similar so it seems they may only have one item to fit each of the themes. Let’s take a closer look at what I got…
Cowboy Bebop T-Shirt
So this is the one item I knew was coming… because I picked it out. I love Cowboy Bebop and this shirt design is awesome! I like that there is no guess work here. I get a shirt that I like and I know I will wear and no disappointments.
I value all shirts at $10
It’s supposedly bacon flavored. I haven’t tried it out yet myself but I saw someone else on YouTube say it had no flavor. I’ll try it out eventually…
These sell for around $5
Groot Flakes Mug
I love the classic cereal box design on here. There has been a large amount of coffee mugs shipped out in geek boxes lately so my cupboard is starting to overflow. I like it but after 4 or 5 mugs it’s hard to get excited anymore… no ones fault, its just what comes with getting so many boxes at a time.
Similar mugs sell for about $10
Tyrion Lannister Funko Pop
I love Game of Thrones so any GOT Pop is welcome! I like that he is smaller than the others… its the little differences that make a Pop worth owning. I will point out that the box was slightly crushed because it was so tightly pack for shipping which doesn’t bother me so much but for others it’s a big issue.
I value all Pops at $10
Star Wars Patch and Random Buttons
Well… Custom Fan Box has filler just like the rest of the geeky subscription boxes. At least I picked out the filler. I’ve never used a patch ever on anything in my life so it’s not much use to me. I do like the Cowboy Bebop pin but well… it’s still just a pin
I estimate the value at $5
…and there you go. Mystery solved! The Custom Fan Box with my selections for March 2015. An estimated $40 value for $30 shipped. I’ve ordered up another one for April which had different questions including shoe size so I’m guessing there will be a sock item in it. If you’re interested in checking them out I have a link posted on my Geek Boxes page on the tab at the top.
