There’s no shortage of geeky boxes out there but a lot these days can be hit and miss. I’m still looking for one that doesn’t disappoint or even a box that can give me a few great boxes in a row… if not indefinitely.
Little spoken about is Infinity Crate, we stopped ordering as we were getting double pop vinyls and the stuff wasn’t really worth the wait at the time but I know a lot of people that are dedicated to the boxes.
That said it has changed a lot since the last time I ordered from them, the website has had a major overhaul and the new design is much better. Also the subscrption service has changed you can have the the classic box which is £16.99 p+p and a premium box £23.99 p+p for the ultimate geek.
That said I couldn’t find many reviews about there April 2016 box with the theme “Allegiance” which I thought was a pretty good box.
I’m just going to jump right in with the contents I’ve seen and you can tell me what you think.
The classic crate: Pop & t-shirt personalised to you.
Superman Funko Pop Vinyl
Captain America Funko Pop Vinyl
Batman socks (with capes)
Games of Thrones : Jon Snow tshirt (depends on your interest)
Batman vs Superman Keyring
Batman vs Superman Vinyl Sticker
Batman vs Superman Mini Poster
Captain America Shield Mouse Mat
Two Pop Vinyls alone are a good deal, my son would have loved to get his hands on it but I don’t know if two pops are common for the classic crate and Batman socks with capes (hell yeah) only way that would be better if they were Harley Quinn.
Not a Game of Thrones fan but it’s got a huge fan base,so Jon Snow tshirt for them my only complaint would be white tshirts….hate them. Keyring and vinyl sticker for the long awaited Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice again yes… I may be weighed down by my many keyrings in the future but they aren’t boring ones.
Mini poster is a bit crap but oh well and as for the mouse mat I know what your thinking, who sits at a PC these days…not many of use its true but did you know mouse mats make great dinner table placemats. Your probably laughing but it’s true plus you’ll have extra geeky ones that no-one has (unless they’ve read this too) and in that case they have good taste 🙂
The Premium Crate:
Batman Inflatable Bat
Superman Socks (with capes)
The Hobbit Stickers/ tattoos
Funko Pop Vinyl Captain America Civil War Iron Man
I’m a little late writing this up considering we had it the same time as our Marvel Collector Corps Ant-man box but if you have kids then you know weekends are super hectic, sometimes as busy as the week.
Anyway getting back to the Infinity Crate June box which the theme of the month was Gather. Now as soon as I heard this I was thinking Pokemon etc as you gather and collect objects. I can’t say I was super happy about the theme because I didn’t think there would be anything in it I would like but it was already paid for.
As usual hubby and son unboxing in which he insists on one of the items 🙂
And below is a list of the contents:
Funko Pop Avengers Age of Ultron : Ultron
4 Pin Badges
Hulk vs Thanos t-shirt
Yoshi mini soft toy
Not super impressed which is a pity as I enjoyed last month’s theme and was hoping to carry on for next months theme which is Time & Space. It’s a shame that it can’t be more personalised as we may have got a Borderlands Claptrap Pop which we haven’t got yet. White t-shirts also drive me crazy most prefer black but even grey would be better than white. Loved the Minecraft badge and the one I think is supernatural but still figuring out what to do with them. I don’t think we’ll bother next month but we’ll see.
Our very first Infinity Crate has arrived and it has not dissapointed us. For those that have not had Infinity Crate before, it is a subscrption box which makes your boxes with your interests in mind but also has a monthly theme. As you can see from the title this months theme is “Loss”. The subscrption can cost from £14.99 upwards depending on t-shirt size and how many months you pay for upfront. The face that you are guarnteed a Pop Vinyl and t-shirt seals the deal for me.
Our May Infinity Crate arrived looking a little banged up this morning so we had our fingers crossed all inside would be okay.
Thankfully all was okay and I really loved the box so much so that I think we will stay suscribed for another month. But anyway back to the contents of this months box, you can either take a look at the video below which is my husband and my very bouncy 4 year old (its her Birthday) unboxing the box or skip to below it where I’ll list the contents for you. Also handy if you miss a bit in the video.
There can be a variety of different so not everyone gets the same thing, this is what we recieved:
Supernatural T-shirt (love it!) – Also available Halo,Walking Dead,Batman & Joker.
Causes of Death Poster
Daryl (Walking Dead) Pin Badge – Also available Final Fantasy,Hershal,Supernatural.
Selection of Temporary Tattoos
Batman Pop -Some have had Firefly (jealous!)
Walking Dead Vinyl
It was a great first box with a great selection of items that I’m really happy with especially at such a great price. Looking forward to next months box now I hope it doesn’t dissapoint.
