1Up Box May 2015 "Sidekick" Review and Coupon Code

1Up Box is a geek/gamer type subscription box. I usually get Loot Crate but I've decided to test out other boxes. I'm SO glad I picked this month to get 1Up Box because the contents were perfect! The theme was sidekick and contained some fantastic Adventure Time goodies.
The true Adventure Time fan is my husband. He watches the episodes on his phone while he's working or before bed. Since we share an office, I hear all the episodes even if I don't see them all. So yes, I sing the Bacon Pancakes song.

The Cost: $18.92/month (that includes shipping)

What You Get: $40+ Value of awesome stuff in each box. Every month features a new collection with an exclusive EPIC Shirt!

Adventure Time BMO Plush- BMO is one of Finn and Jakes friends in Adventure Time. He is a video game console (but all the games are dumb) and he can be a toaster, too. Typical cartoon craziness, of course. This had to be rescued immediately from Bugsy because it is much too special to be ripped apart. No. This is being displayed.
Value: $16

Jake of Hearts Decal- A sticker with Jake from Adventure time on it, looking like a card from a deck.

Love my Sidekick Wristband- This is silly.

Sidekick Dog Tag- This has a figure on it that looks suspiciously like Robin. Apparently, DH doesn't like Robin for some reason. I remember being sort of in love with him when he was in the Batman show with Adam West. Only "sort of" because I didn't want to cheat on my love for Aquaman. :D
Beep Boop Drawstring Sack- Ok, this would be super awesome if it wasn't a tacky drawstring bag. If it was a poster it would be perfect. I wonder if I cut it up, glued it somehow to tagboard and then framed it, if that would be cool or not. Hm.
I like it because it's R2D2 but it has the Millenium Falcon, a battle scene, Luke, etc, etc compiling the image. There's probably a word for art like that...
Fist Bump T-Shirt- Yoshi and BMO fistbumping. Is the glowiness from Tron? Is it not significant? I can't figure out why they are sort of skellington looking.
Value: $14.99

VERDICT: This 1Up Box was made when I saw the Adventure Time plushie. It became perfect when the T-shirt turned about to be nerdtastic, too. The rest... Meh.  Luckily, the two things I did like are worth more than the box cost so I'm happy. There seems to always be some filler crap like decals and pins in these types of boxes. Some months are worse than others for filler but I've never actually hated a box. There's *always* something good that makes it worth it.

If you want to sign up for 1UpBox, you can do that right here.  Use code AWESOME to get $3 off your first box! That makes your first box about $15. Totally worth it.

What do you think of 1UpBox? Compared to Loot Crate?

  1. BMO!!!!! This box is actually pretty awesome, makes me wish I had subscribed!! I think the fact that this box has a plush and a t-shirt has it beating out Loot Crate for me...
