Product: Justice League Wind Ups
Retail Value: $10.00 (Estimated)

There are a total of seven characters from this collection of DC's classic heroes. Subscribers will receive one at random. I got Green Lantern. These wind-up figures are made by Bulls-i-Toys. The value is estimated based on eBay auction price since I couldn't find any retailer listings.

Boxometry 1Up Box July Review - Exclusive Super Rangers T-Shirt

Product: Exclusive Super Rangers T-Shirt
Retail Value: $14.99 (Estimated)

For this month, the exclusive t-shirt is a mashup of Super Mario and Power Rangers. It's a pretty neat idea. Also, I like the gray background color since most shirts tend to be black. It's a nice change and adds a little variety.

Final Thoughts: While I enjoyed this month's 1Up Box, I feel like most of the products are geared towards a younger audience. Items like pencil topper, wind ups, and temporary tattoos are things I'd use or play with if I were much younger.
