I’m not usually a fan of mystery boxes because I do NOT like surprises and I have very reasonable fears about being ripped off.
HOWEVER! This was Comic-Con and there were sooo many mystery boxes to choose from and there was a special buy 2, get a free prize. At first I didn’t see one that was to my liking but then the man was like, this doesn’t look like Steven Universe, but it is! And so my interest was piqued. I choose SU, my bf chose Nintendo.
The outside of our mystery boxes both looked like dis:
And I was totally happy with all my loot. Steven Universe is over (sad) so I figured anything in this box would be good since I rarely see SU collectibles anymore. Except for Funko Pops, I remember there was some good SU swag at Hot Topic, buuuut they’ve def moved on. Sorry, Steven!
Obviously the mug and blanket are my FAVS. I totally used to collect blankets back in the day, but those Hello Kitty and Adventure Time blankets are long gone. Maybe I should get back into this, since the only other cool blanket I have is one my bf got me for Xmas with pot leaves that says “Serial Chiller” that we have to hide from the parents whenever they come over. 😹
I never really go for mugs, but I get them as gifts sometimes and I love them! I would dive deep into these collectibles if only I had enough room in the cabinets. 🤔
Bonus: this was the prize we got for buying two mystery boxes!
The person picking her prize before us rejected the Pikachu glass and I REALLY wanted it, so when it was my bf’s turn and he rejected the MegaMan plush, I Secret’d this glass into our lives. 🤣 Can’t believe it worked. I didn’t even care for the Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite as a potential bonus prize. I wanted that glass.
I don’t see myself getting mystery boxes often in the future, but this time around it was definitely worth it!
