Yup. Best box ever. What else can I say? It has an AWESOME shirt big enough for me to sleep in, great figures, a journal, buttons, and OMG BARB!!! It may be a little morbid but man, is that plushie cute!
I am broke as hell and shouldn’t have spent the money on this but it was worth every freaking penny and more. It has all of my favorite types of items with creative designs and you can’t go wrong with the theme.
Well, I can think of ways it could go terribly wrong but it didn’t so, YAY!
Ok, for real. This box as some really creative items in it and I was fangirling all over it. I know I get a lot of these cards and prints but I post them all over my desk. I am convinced I have the geekiest desk at work…
I think overall, this box was well worth the cost and I’m glad I got it. It’s always a treat to get geeky and nerdy things I can wear to work and still look professional (since I shouldn’t be wearing t-shirts at work). And I can change up my look (since I do tend to wear the same jewelry every day). This is one of my favorite boxes right now.
Is it bad that I stopped caring at the shirt? Because I stopped caring at the shirt. XD They could have sent JUST THAT, and the crate would have been a win.
As a total geek, I am down for old school pencils. And they are printed with sayings from the show; such as ‘I want to believe’ and ‘The Truth is Out There.’ And MAJOR props for not assuming customers had a pencil sharpener. I do, since in the rare instances I do draw, I use sketch pencils and colored pencils. These are a tiny but appreciated detail since I’m a fan of the show.
The mug changes to have Joker graffiti in the sky and the Batman signal light. Very awesome.
As for the Q-Fig, I like the fact Jessica isn’t just posed. She’s kicking a brick wall down. Much more dynamic to look at.
Oh, and the box turns into a suitcase… I never manage to do anything with the changing boxes. I give them to my kid to do.
The subject of a series of unethical experiments, Eleven escapes her tormentors and is found by three young boys; Lucas, Dustin, and Mike. But Eleven isn’t the only escapee and with townspeople vanishing, the organization is hunting Eleven down.
That’s a pretty thin synopsis but I don’t wanna even attempt to give anything away. I don’t know what is going on with these little original series these days but WOW, are they impressive. The characters are written so well you relate to them immediately and the flow of this is on point. I won’t give away too much but I will say that the sheriff character in these types of shows can take entire seasons to deduce things but Jim Hopper is on the damn ball. And Winona Ryder as Joyce? She’s just amazing. Even the kids make these fabulous performances.
The only bad thing about this is just a common writing thing where if the characters provided simple explanations, some misunderstandings would be avoided but that’s just a very, VERY minor gripe.
I get some serious Outer Limits, Twin Peaks vibes from this show and it trips my nostalgia switch being set in the early 80’s. This is yet another series where I am so glad I listened to people when they insisted I watch it. Completely worth my time and I look forward to season 2.
