Slocum's Joe Franchise Kit by Bethesda Gear
Who else did some damage during Slocum's Joe Week on Bethesda Gear?! 😂😅 Here's one of the first purchases of mine to arrive, I'm a sucker for plushies so I had to grab this one! I also have a video review up on my YouTube if you'd like to check that out as well, as usual I like to have my bases covered as some stuff appears better in photos vs video, and visa versa. New subscribers are always much appreciated!
Before we continue this is 100% purchased by me but that I'm a Gear Ambassador for Bethesda Gear so this post will contain affiliate links and I'll earn a small commission if you follow through with a purchase. Thanks for your support!
Let's start off with a quick rundown of the Slocum's Joe Franchise Kit so you know exactly what you're getting:
1 Mini Art Print
4 Donut Plushies
1 Enamel Pin
A retail value of $75 for $45
Here's the box itself which measures 8.5"W x 8.5"H x 2"D and remember to click the arrows to scroll through all the photos~ the box itself has a nice glossy finish, and I love that it's all PINK 🥰💖
Here's the mini print, which is really cute as who doesn't love these pre-war ads?! It's 4"x6" so think like a postcard size print and with a glossy finish. I feel like they could have made it a little bit bigger considering the box is 8.5" 🤷♀️
Here's the enamel pin, it was a bit annoying to get photos of this due to the finish 🤣 so I tried getting a few photos from different angles, hopefully it helps! Later on I'll add some additional photos once I get my light box set up! This measures 2"W x 1"H, it has 2 pin posts on the back with silver butterfly clutch backings.
I didn't get photos of the other two donuts, sorry 😅 so you get 1 of each flavor/color (green, white, pink) and they're pretty soft and squishy! Measures approximately 3.5" in diameter
Here's the big reason why I wanted to get the Franchise Kit: for the cute donut mascot plushie 🍩😄💖 does it even have a name?! It also measures approximately 3.5" in diameter
Maybe I'm blind but I'm really not seeing how all this supposedly adds up to a retail value of $75...?! Even at $45 I think it's kinda pricey for what it is 😅 unless you're a Slocum's Joe enthusiast or you REALLY like cute pink Fallout merch. I'd definitely advise on waiting for a sale/promo if you plan on picking this one up! Also, I noted in my video review that this shipped in a polybag mailer 🙃 I'm lucky that my box was in decent condition and wasn't horribly dinged up or anything, since USPS likes to throw stuff into the ringer quite literally sometimes. Just something to keep in mind if you plan on also getting this and want the box in pristine condition, I'd recommend ordering this with some other merch so they'll be more likely to pack it all in a big box.
Overall I'm happy with my purchase, but definitely wish I would have waited for sale/promo before picking it up. The other big thing I ordered was the Slocum's Joe wall clock sooo~ we'll see if I like that one right off the bat or if it's another one I should have waited on for sale/promo 🤪 I uhh, accidentally ordered 2 so one will pop up as a 'giveaway' at some point. Whoops!
