The Amazing Mystery box company is a website that sells pop-culture items both in the form of mystery boxes and some items separately, they also sell some in a shop and are very popular at Comic cons and similar events, their boxes are often priced at £24.99 or £49.99, but they do have deals and offers, however, they will often contain items at a much higher value, this one based around gaming.
Amazing Mystery box
We have had a couple of these boxes now with different themes and like most mystery boxes they can be hit and miss depending on the theme and the customer. We in particular like an assortment of pop culture themes and with gaming especially, between us all we have a broad range of likes. As a gaming family, there would surely be something for us all? but were they worth it? we look at the box and those questions.
Keyrings are often a gimmy in mystery boxes and a great filler, they range in quality and themes but this was being metal was solid feel to it, Both Tiggr and I are halo fans, and it looks good and is a solid option.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Again Tigger and I are Sonic fans, and so is Piglet if we are honest, this box had a pen! nothing special to be fair but it’s a nice colour in the sonic blue with the pic of him on it.
Now this is going to be odd but this black cap is excellent because of two things, its streetfighter which is great lol.. but its black colour with the KO symbol on the front works equally well that it doesn’t show streetfighter, so for most generic people this is good. We all know what KO is and for hat wearers like us it’s one of the better things in the box
This is genius, Pacman ghosts as salt and pepper shakers are excellent and such a different thing, as a gamer especially a retro gamer this would look excellent in your man cave etc.. you kind of want a Pacman to go with it.
Call of Duty
A second key ring, similar to the Halo one sees a metal design, and this one looks like war badge and looks pretty good, if your are a fan of COD this is good to have in your collection
Parental Advisory Explicit Content!
It sounds so shocking! but it’s a wallet, and actually a fine one, the design and content is a unique one in that this parental advisory explicit content is all about the mature stuff one films games etc.. so for a teenager, it probably looks a bit cooler than it should be.
Mario has been around a lot, in many different forms, collectables, pop culture items etc…so it’s ever-popular but this saw Donky kong enter the box. Mini-figure collectables again come in different sizes and quality, this brand is the more common one which is great for your collection and always looks on point.
This is a figure based on mortal Kombat X, Liu Kang is one of the more well know characters and the quality is fine, I don’t like the slight cartoony edge to it but it’s still good.
Tees or Tshirts are one of the most common but popular items in all and any mystery boxes from any company, this was no different with of Call of duty taking the stage, COD is one of the biggest gaming brands in the world so would be popular for most, there’s digital time inside but often expect this type of thing to be out of date or something small, it’s about the Tee.
More Mario hits the box in the form of socks, which I went straight for as I love theme socks, and over the last 20 years socks have become are a much bigger popular item. This one was grey and had the hat from the Mario Odyssey game and looks great.
Halo Avatar Figures
A blind bag style with a choice of halo figures lies inside, these blind bags are always hits and miss, and the choice of figures is ok, if you like that.
Halo again is seen in the box, it’s a big brand but we see the third item in the set, these ones are a more lego style build blox. The mega bloks build is actually a big collection and many different haloes themes have been built over the years, this one was a small marine and turret. Worth adding if you had previous Halo Mega Bloks items.
A mug is often one of those Mystery boxes items and to be fair they are normally very good, this one was no different with the theme being Zelda, add in the hot water and the pic would add further detail based on the heat. If your a fan of Zelda then this would easily be the best thing in the box.
The value of the box is obviously good, you can often buy their smaller one at £19.99 or £24.99 depending on offers, this was one of those boxes. There is a larger one at £49.99, both boxes have an item value of at least double the price, and to be honest you can’t disagree with this in this one.
There are many good times in her and actually, the range is very broad, the three Halo items were a touch disappointing as I would be happy with one of these swapped out. ultimately you have to remember not every game gets merch, but a lot of the big brands here were covered, and for that and the price it was well worth it.
