Here it is! The Power Up Box! The newest of the geeky subscription boxes. This service offers 2 different sized boxes to match their various competition’s price points. The small box is roughly $20 shipped, while the large is $30… thus competing with both the Loot Crates and Nerd Blocks of the subscription box world. The only difference between the 2 boxes is the number of items included (you get a few extras in the larger box). So let’s check it out! Bring on the video…
So in case you were wondering, I got the large box. Let’s take a closer look…
Power Up Box Promotional Gear: Bag, Button, & Lanyard
I get it… kicking off the new service with some promo gear. The bag is a nice string backpack type and the lanyard is pretty decent quality as well. The button is just a button. Nothing to write home about but definitely way better than stickers and other useless items.
It’s hard to price these out being promotional but similar items would total about $10
Spider-man Lollipop Rings
Yuck I hate watermelon flavor! Yes I know I cant fault them for not knowing that lol. These are pretty cool looking though with their Spiderman shaped heads.
These sell for around $2 a pack on Amazon
Spider Gwen Comic
It’s like a girl version of Spiderman… sorta. I haven’t read it yet but I flipped through it and there’s Spider-Pig in it… or is it Spider-Ham? Peter Porker? (I have an old comic around here somewhere with him in it) I always welcome a comic even though I’m not really a collector.
This has a face value of $4
Marvel Mystery Minis
I love Mystery Minis but naturally I got someone I don’t like at all… Loki. I’m not a fan of Thor and likewise not of Loki either. Ah well that’s what happens when you gamble in the crazy blind box world of Mystery Minis lol.
TMNT Raphael Pocket Pop
I’m not as into Pocket Pops as I am their full sized cousins (a regular Pop lol) but I do like to get one on occasion if they’re cool. This one is definitely cool and nicely detailed for a Pocket Pop. He’s a keeper for sure!
Why So Serious Joker T-Shirt
I’ve seen a few other boxes and I believe the shirt you get is random because there were a few others. I love this design as I am a big fan of this particular Joker.
I value all shirts at $10
Fabrikations Harley Quinn
This is the main item you got if you ordered the large box (a few other smaller items weren’t included in the small box either). I’ve seen a few different variations on this… a lot of people got Batman but I’m glad I got Harley Quinn instead. These are some of the only plush toys I don’t mind getting because they are so damn cool!
I found her for as little as $15 on Amazon
…and there you have it, the first ever Power Up Box for April 2015. An estimated $55 value for $30 shipped. Personally I think they did a great job and I’m looking forward to seeing what they do for their second box.
