Quarterly Co. Wil Wheaton **SPOILERS**

Recommended Posts

@@gcc69 Thanks for posting so quickly!!  I've been dying to see what was in there & I've gotta say...thank god I cancelled.  I don't think there's anything in that box that I would've liked (idk what I was expecting, but I guess it wasn't that)  But I'm glad you're happy with it & hope everyone that's getting it loves what they get!

Well, in the bigger picture, if the box were just for me, I wouldn't have liked it, esp at that price. I was glad my husband liked it and thought it was fun. I've tried getting him sub boxes for 'geeks and gamers,' but really they end up being a lot of vinyl figures, t-shirts, and stickers, and he lost interest pretty quickly. I was a fan of Stars Wars (huge crush on Luke Skywalker) when it first came out so that stuff was fun for us both.

My husbands box came in. I'm not impressed, but maybe if the action figure had been in there it would have made it look more substantial. Does anyone have experience with their customer service with missing items? I hope they work something out to extend the coupon. Husband is happyish though, and I finally have justification for my subs, lol.

I'm sure they will send you one if it was left out. Ours was just a small one loose in the box (not in original packaging or anything like that), almost overlooked it since it was buried in the shredded packing paper stuff.

Our box came yesterday! We've been playing with the Littlebits electronic set a lot. My girls and husband love mixing the modules up and seeing what everything does. It's really cool! I'd love to get more, but it's so expensive. We figure with the $20 we'll get one or two more little parts. The action figure we got was Princess Leia. I happen to be reading the old Star Wars comics right now, so that's pretty cool. One of my daughters actually put her on the rod sticking out of the motor from the LittleBits kit (she has holes in her feet) and set up the lights, so when you turn it on, Princess Leia spins like she's having a dance party. Lol The cards we got were mostly from Star Wars and one from Planet of the Apes. They're cool, but we don't have much use for the cards or the poster. He said there will be a poster in each of the four boxes this year and at the end, you can put them together to form a mega poster. That sounds neat, but I guess we'll wait and see. :)

This sounds so cool! My daughter would have loved this box especially the Littlebits electronics set. Anything Star Wars is great too. Sounds like a fun box.

Have you tried to redeem the code yet? It says it's $20 off kits so we weren't sure if you had to use it on a kit or if you could just pick out $20 worth of additional pieces--we were thinking the same thing, that the kits otherwise are quite expensive and we don't want to buy an entire kit, even with $20 off. In addition did you notice the code expires already this weekend?!

Oh, no. We haven't tried it yet. Ugh, I hope it's not just on kits because $20 isn't much helpful then. lol Well, there are a couple pieces we're looking at. I'll try the code when we decide which and report back if it worked. It's crazy that the code only lasts until this weekend. I guess we'll have to hurry!

I did see on the quarterly facebook page very recently that "the vintage action figures took a bit more time to source and arrive at our warehouse than expected." They were supposed to send that box out earlier...

I just played around with the shopping cart at LittleBits and it seems like the coupon is just on the kits, not the expansion packs or anything else. It would have been nice to have $20 to use in the shop unrestricted, but I do not think I can go in for a full kit right now. :/ It's too bad because they are cool!

The last few days I looked for when this was shipping because it had seemed like a long time. It seems quarterly is full of issues and we were thinking of canceling our subscription.

 

Anyway, it charged today. Hopefully it's worth the wait!

Was there only one spoiler? All I remember hearing about is the D&D starter set. That's cool, but I didn't know if anything else was mentioned. Ours is supposed to arrive on Tuesday. :)

Several weeks ago I did some searches for hints to WIL02:

 

 

Jun 4 mysubscriptionaddiction.com

 

During the 1980s, Wil was obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons, so naturally for #WIL02 he had to include the new Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set. This is your gateway to action-packed stories of the imagination. This box contains the essential rules of the game plus everything you need to play heroic characters on perilous adventures in worlds of fantasy.

 

May 28 findsubscriptionboxes.com

 

The #WIL02 June 2015 Wil Wheaton Quarterly Box theme is 80s!

 

Short of including a time travel machine, we will include some amazing things that represent this decade of Wil’s life.

 

We’re also excited to share the first #WIL02 Wil Wheaton Quarterly Box spoiler! Delivering a modern take on the 80’s, the June 2015 Wil Wheaton Quarterly box will feature the RPG (Role Playing Game) Dragon Age!

 

During this time, Wil was obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons, so of course he wanted to include an RPG (Role Playing Game). In this box you’ll find Dragon Age, the new age of fantasy role playing.

 

 

May 7 http://blog.quarterly.co

 

 

Q. So #WIL01 was about the 1970s, which we’re pretty stoked about. #WIL02 is going to be about the 1980s, do you have any hints for what this box will include?

A. Well, I don’t want to give too much away, but I think it’s safe to presume that there will be something related to arcades and video games in there.

We can't get our RetroDuo to work. After we hook it up to the tv, put in the game, and turn it on, we just get a blank screen. We tried several different NES cartridges, incase that was the problem, with no luck. :/ Did anyone else get theirs working?

Oh no! My husband's actually not hooked it up and tried it yet and didn't bring it with him this weekend. We've been really busy this past week, and he barely had ten minutes to look at the box's contents when he was finally home to open it. I told him he needs to try it as soon as he's back home. Did you contact Quarterly?

 

My husband liked the first two boxes that Wil curated. He is about the same age as Wil, and all of the items were things he and his brother liked and were into in the 70s and 80s. Between the price of the box, shipping no longer being free, and the next one having a 90s theme, which doesn't interest him, he cancelled his subscription.

The socks were the color scheme or design or something like that was on his Wesley Crusher shirt.

    • Nice. Thanks for sharing this. Wearing makeup is common place in today's society, worn for anything from a day at work to a formal night out. Makeup may do magical things, but it doesn't have to be a mystery. Applying a basic, natural look doesn't require a lot of skill or tools. You can do lots of the blending with your fingertips, and choose to leave out certain products if they don't appeal to you. So have no fear: enjoy the process and your fresh, glowing face!
    • What is a good ,lightweight and affordable sunscreen? Any Suggestions...
    • There are so many recipes to make clear lip gloss at home. The easiest I say is using plain tocopherol T50 vitamin E oil in a roll on bottle. It was works wonders. Apart from glossy lips it heals dry chapped lips. A cheaper version of the gloss is castor oil. Castor oil is thick and glossy. A little of beeswax or/and shea butter too can be added. A recipe with castor oil, shea butter and castor oil. Castor oil 8 grams Shea butter 1 gram Beeswax 1 gram. I know it is quite difficult to make with such small measurements. Can multiply with 3 or 5 and you get 3 or 5 lip gloss roll on. Take all the three ingredients in a microwave save bowl, heat in short span of 5 seconds till everything is melted. Add flavour oil. (A lip safe flavour oil can be added for some fragrance and taste. Just a drop or two is more than enough for each roll on bottle.) Let it cool. Fill in roll on bottles or tubes or just any smallest container you have.
    • You should also heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer before curling. Helps them stay curled for longer. Just make sure the eyelash curler isn’t too hot before using it.  
    • With my emotions my skin is drying too. #sad and had to do something for both.  for the same this article saved my back #dryskin Click for dry skin this article is THE BEST.
