Geekgear box_ World of Wizardry June 2017

Unboxing WoW July 2017

Hi guys, i'm back for another unboxing, this one is the geek gear box for June 2017. 
For those of you who do not know this box, it is a monthly subscription one with a price of 19.99 £ (about 22.68 €) and a shipping cost outside UK of 5.99£ (about 6.69 €). It always brings a t shirt and more 5 or 6 items all related to the wizarding world of Harry Potter.  

Every month we received clues about what the box will going to contain, and the clues for June are: 
1- Phoenix 
2- Lightning bolt
3- Whomping willow
4- Exclusive edition figure

I confess that i was both excited and apprehensive to received this box  because i didn't like the last one but at the same time i loved the clues for this! 

When i open the box this is what i see!!!
Again the paper tissue is blue (because i'm a ravenclaw) so all the house related items will be from this house. 

So let's begin with the content of this month.... 

The first thing that is visible in the box is the shirt, and OMG i love the design of this one!!! It is a house themed shirt which means that if you choose a different house, our design will be different from mine. 
This one represents the eagle (Ravenclaw's mascot) with the diadem, but also there is one with a lion and the Gryffindor's sword another with a badger and the cup from Hufflepuff and finally a snake with the locket of Slytherin. 
They are all in this shade of grey but the colors of the image change depending on the house. 

And the magic continues with this awesome deck of cards! Last month i see in a facebook post that there was a harry potter deck of cards on primark, but when i go there to buy it they have sold everyone... i was so sad!

Now it seems that geek gear knew and they send me another deck even more beautiful =D  The cards are all black with the scene from the last month painting(crossing the dark lake in the 1º year) in the back. 
The king, queen and jack have the face of Harry, Hermione and Ron respectively and the joker is Dobby. 
I only have to decide if i would use them to play cards or if it will be a collection item and be on my shelf. 

The next thing from this month box is a little replica of the ford anglia flying car from the Weasley's.
It is so cute =D i like it and will put it next to my funko pop figures. The replica came with a plastic suporter that makes the car appear to be flying. 

This box also contain a gold necklace with the lightning bolt symbol as a pendant. 
That is not my favorite piece of jewelry that i have received from geek gear, but i like it and will definitely use it and i have to tell you guys that the pendant is very robust and not hollow. 

The WoW start this month a new collection of exclusive pins and the first character represented is Hagrid with a little buckbeak. 
Like some of the items on previous boxes, this one has different possibilities: there are a regular one, a silver one (that have a chance of 1/50) and a gold one (1/100). 
Like you can see in the image i got the golden, each means that in 100 boxes mine was chosen to have this special pin. 
When i see which i get i could not decide if i has happy or not, because the regular one has the original colors and i would like it, but now i really like this one and let's be honest it's a limited edition =D 

The last item before the print is a scarf, and let me tell you a little bit of information about me, I LOVE SCARFS!!! 

I love winter and winter clothes and especially scarfs or gloves and i have a huge collection. So you can imagine how happy i was with this one. 

 It is so silky and smooth you can't imagine, it's perfect for a summer night out. This one is black with all the crest from the four house in it, with the respective colors and it's almost see through.   

I only hope they give more items like this, i love the shirts but i would also like more wearable items. 

All the boxes brought a print or a picture and this month there are two different options. 
The design was the same but the colors change, you could received this one with a white background or one with a black one. 

In this you can see a phoenix and dragon shape emerging from the goblet of fire. It is really simple but at the same time you can perceived that there are a lot of thinking behind this print. 

Let's talk a little about the clues! 
1- The first one (Phoenix) refereed to this month print. I was expecting that it will be something in a shirt or a little figure of a phoenix, but i have to admit that this one was imaginative and a little outside the box. 
2- The Lightning bolt obviously is in the necklace. There is many costume jewelry with this symbol and shame on me, i have none before this one. I was thinking this clue refereed to the print but i'm glad it doesn't.
3- About the Whomping willow i get the reference to the flying car figure but i was not expecting that for sure. I was thinking it will be something with the tree itself and not a reference to the scene of the 2 book when they crash the car on the Whomping willow. Again this only show the detail geek gear put in every box. 
4- Exclusive edition figure of course it the pin of Hagrid and Buckbeak!!! OMG i love that idea and i only hope there is one in every box from now on to make a huge collection. I was expecting something like a funko pop or the Hedwig they send in a past box, but i'm really glad it is a pin collection we could not get anywhere else. 

In general i have to give a 4 or even 5 * to this box, it was one of my personal favorites from them and i expect geek gear maintain this level for future months. As for my favorite item (Oh god what a difficult choice....) i have to say.... the shirt! i really like it and i'm sure i will use it so many many times. 
My least favorite this month was the car figure, and don't get me wrong, i like it but since all the other items are so so good i have to pick this one only because i will not use it this much since it will be on my shelf. 

Please tell me what was your favorite item and if you like this box, fell free to follow my blog to more posts about harry potter and have a great week guys =D
