BoxyChan Game of Thrones Comikaze Unboxing
At Comikaze, I discovered a new monthly box called BoxyChan. The cool thing about BoxyChan is that they offer multiple themes to choose from each month, which allows you to get items that are more specifically curated to your interests compared to most monthly boxes. My friends at What In The World were about to release an analysis of the worldbuilding in Game of Thrones, so we decided to go all-in on a Game of Thrones BoxyChan and see what come out of it.
The first item we pulled out was a Targeryan patch. All of us like the Targeryans, but none of us have any particular use for patches. So, it’s a decent item, but one that isn’t necessarily relevant to our needs. AlliCat has a friend who likes patches, so she’s gifting it to her. The estimated value is $5.
The second item was a full-size Funko POP figure of Daenerys. Funko POPs are always cool, so I think we were all happy to see this. The estimated value is $10.
The third item was a silicone Winter is Coming wristband, which helped break the Targeryan streak of the box. AlliCat is a huge fan of the Starks, so she was happy to see this, although she’s not big on wristbands. The estimated value is $2.
Going along with the addition of the Starks to the box, the fourth item was a Direwolf necklace. This is a neat necklace that AlliCat, self-proclaimed Stark lover, is modeling in the picture above. Pretty much everyone likes the Starks, so this seems like a safe, fun item for the box. The estimated value is $5.
Back to Daenerys! The fifth item in the box was another Daenerys Funko POP figurine, but this time it was a mini-sized keychain. The figurine is cute and well-suited to the keyring of any Daenerys fan. The estimated value is $6.
The sixth item featured, yet again, Daenerys. It’s a unique item, though, in that it’s a 300-piece puzzle, and puzzles aren’t a common item in subscription boxes. I’m not a puzzle enthusiast, but I think they can be fun to solve, so I was happy to see this. The estimated value is $6.
The seventh and final item in the box was a mystery vinyl figurine. We discovered that the figurine was a Whitewalker that was much more adorable than a Whitewalker should have the right to be. The estimated value is $6.
Overall, the Game of Thrones BoxyChan contained merchandise totalling an estimated $40. The box cost us $25, so we got a pretty good deal. Even at the ordinary monthly price, $31 to account for shipping costs, it appears that the BoxyChan provides good value of the price you pay. More importantly, all of the items we received were relevant to our interests. All three of us were happy with how the box turned out.
For those curious, we split up the items as follows:
Kayley: Daenerys full-size POP figure; Daenerys puzzle
AlliCat: Targeryan patch; Stark necklace; Whitewalker vinyl figurine
GareBear: Winter is Coming bracelet; Daenerys POP keychain
By the way, I mentioned earlier in the post that we chose this theme because AlliCat and GareBear had recorded a video discussing the worldbuilding in the Game of Thrones universe. Well, that video is now online, and you can watch it here. A must-see for anyone interested in worldbuilding and/or Game of Thrones!
