Comic Con Box is a newer geeky monthly subscription. This one brings you Comic Con in a box – and is perfect for anyone who loves the kind of toys, tech, and gaming you would see at a ComicCon convention. Boxes are $29.99 per month plus shipping ($7 for me). Boxes include exclusives, collectibles, autographs, and many other amazingly awesome things you would severely geek out to at a Comic Con including toys, comics, artwork, shirts, and various discounts.
ComicConBox has chosen not to put all the items on the cards – just the featured items, plus the featured artist – who has been the same all three boxes. The theme for July is ADVENTURE.
A Dozen Doctors Tee ($15) This wasn’t my fave. I’m not a Dr. Who fan, I don’t like the logo on the shirt, and the screen wasn’t really great quality. A miss for me.
Chomping Dinosaur ($??) This is pretty cheap plastic and worth maybe $5 if I am being generous and it’s being sold in a museum (with jacked up prices, per usual). It’s a fun novelty item, but they should’ve been able to procure an actual Jurassic World item (and lots of them are very inexpensive). Jokes on us!
TOMY Zelda Danglers ($5.38) this is a cute item that you can dangle wherever you want. I’m going to pass this on to my fave Zelda fan – who emptied my house of all Zelda items this past week! They sell for a dollar at game stores.
NECA Scalers – Spider-Man & Iron Man – Exclusive to the *2014* Comic Con. While these are fun and I’m totally going to hang a totally safe not-child-reachable cord in the boys’ room when we decorate it, this is feeling like a close-out box. Yes, it’s an exclusive item – from last year! The scalers retail for $10 each, so $20.
Rob Prior’s Vader of the Lost Ark – This isn’t my favorite of his, although he’s an amazing artist. This was the first time I actually noticed the logo, which I dislike intensely. I liked the previous prints so much I didn’t even notice it – it makes it meh for hanging/framing to me. The quality of the printing is very high and it’s large, so I’ll still value them at $15, because I understand not everyone minds!

Comic Con is the only subscription to card/bag its comics. This bag is inside the bag with the artwork, so it’s really well protected.
Ant-Man Larger Than Life 001 Variant Edition ($3.99)
Jurassic Strike Force 5 One-Shot – Terror & Tacos – I don’t know what this is? This is not a full-length thing, it’s sort of a teaser to buy more, so it’s sort of worthless.
They’re both produced exclusively for this box.
Adventure Time Plush Chew Toy ($9.99) This… is a dog toy.
August Comic Con Box Spoiler – SCIENCE! FYI – last month the spoilers were Minions, Link, Dr. Who, and Jurassic Park so YMMV on what you get seeing what was in this box. The spoilers are: Terminator, Iron Man, Mega Man, Mario, Donkey Kong, and Alien.
The value of the box was around $74, but I didn’t think it was impressive at all, and as far as I know – I wasn’t alone. I’ll decide whether to continue this subscription with the next box. There wasn’t one single thing in this box that I actually enjoyed.
Antboy DVD – I forgot this item when I published the post 5 minutes ago. It wouldn’t have made a difference in my review. That’s sad. However, I think my kids will enjoy this one so it’s not a total loss. Sort of. It’s a Danish movie dubbed in English.
