The December 2015 1Up Box has a “Galaxy” theme and I’m really glad I was subscribed because anything Star Wars tends to make me pretty happy. I saw The Force Awakens last Friday and enjoyed it. I promise not to spill any spoilers but I freely admit that I had tears a few times. The nostalgia of it all really got me.
1Up Box is a geek and gamer geared subscription box that sends a t-shirt every month. It’s one of the reasons I like this box so much. It is definitely cursed with the inevitable “filler” but I feel like getting a t-shirt can cover a multitude of sins.
The Cost: $18.92/month (including shipping)
What You Get: $40+ Value of awesome stuff in each box. Every month features a new collection with an exclusive EPIC Shirt!
Star Wars Chewbacca Plushie- Yess!! Who wouldn’t want a Chewy plush?! Everyone loves Chewbacca! Especially me. Well, I like Wookies in general, too, I think, since they’re pretty awesome.
Inflatable Lightsaber- I also don’t know anyone who wouldn’t enjoy an inflatable lightsaber. This was actually the first thing my husband took out of the box. He blew it up and then proceeded to play with it. And yes, he’s a grown man. I do have to admit that after he was done with it, I couldn’t resist a few swings myself.
Chrismas Star Wars Mashup T-shirt- I’m not sure what I’m really looking at here. It sort of reminds me of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe mixed with Star Wars. No idea. But it’ll be funny to wear to Christmas instead of an ugly sweater.
Lanyard- Filler alert! You’d think that after sending one or two, they’d figure out that we had enough and stop sending them. Because really, how many lanyards can you use?!
Rocket Racoon Sticker- filllllerrrrr
1Up Box Commemorative Pin
Captain Kirkby Art Print- The last peice of filler!
VERDICT: Well, there was a lot of useless filler but I’m happy to have a Chewbacca plush. The shirt… It’s a little late in the month for a seasonal t-shirt but whatever. Honestly, this box was kind of blah. Not super thrilled with it although the lightsaber was pretty fun, too. 1Up Box usually is so much better than this. Oh well.
If you would like to sign up for the January 2016 1Up Box, you can do that here. Use code AWESOME to get $3 off your first box. I think it’s worth it with a coupon, for sure.
What did you think of this box? Do you have any idea what the t-shirt is mashing up? Nothing, maybe?
