Vault-Tec Stash Box 005 by Bethesda Gear
Updated: Jun 21, 2022
Bethesda Gear is back with yet another stash box and I can't decide if this or 003 is my favorite, haha. If you're unfamiliar with what the Vault-Tec Stash boxes are, the design is based on the 'My Stash Box' container as seen in Fallout 76 and each contains 4 items of 'random' Fallout gear that's $60 worth for only $30. 005 is limited to 700 units, so once these sell out that's it.
Before we proceed, disclaimer time: SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY so don't keep reading if you want it to stay a surprise 😅 and two, this is 100% purchased by me but I'm a Gear Ambassador (affiliate) for Bethesda Gear, so if you'd like to support me please use my affiliate links and I'll earn a small commission if you follow through with a purchase. Thank you kindly!! 🙇♀️💖 You can purchase your own Vault-Tec Stash Box 005 here while supplies last!
Video review is up on my YouTube, you can check it directly here or go to my main channel here, new subs are always much appreciated and let me know you came from my blog! Moving forward I'll be doing video reviews and accompanying blog reviews released at the same time, it's a little bit more work on my end but I insist because ~*~reasons~*~ haha. Anyways, onto the blog review!
Vault Boy 'Vault 13' Luck bobblehead
They give you 'clues or hints' as to what's inside each box, they flat out tell you there's a bobblehead so I kinda figured it was going to be another one of these. 😅 What do I mean by another one? The previous box had a Vault 13 Charisma bobblehead haha, so I think it's safe to say that the next 5 boxes will have the other ones to complete the set. I have NO idea if they plan on releasing these by themselves (or as a set) later on, so we'll have to wait and see.
The packaging because you know I'm all about the packaging 😝 it also takes up about uh, 1/3 of the space inside the Stash Box. I guess in a way it's a good thing as they don't put anything else in there to pad/pack whatever else it gets boxed up with. I should also add that you're guaranteed to get this in your box.
101 by Gaming Heads on the left, and 13 by DPI Promo on the right for comparison as there are some slight differences. I'm not gonna lie the Vault 13 ones look and feel a bit cheaper in quality. I already have a complete set of 101 bobbleheads and Series 4 of the 111 bobbleheads, so I'm burned out on bobbleheads already lmao 💀 so I'm not sure what I'll do with the 13 set if I decide to complete it.
Red Rocket Flag/Banner
**NOTE I want to update these with new photos lmao, but at least this should give you SOME idea of what it looks like and the dimensions**
...literally MONTHS later I finally remembered to get better photos 😅 anyways, keep reading!!
The 'first dibs' on one new item coming soon to the Gear Store is this awesome Red Rocket banner (flag? whatever you wanna call it lol), I love it and currently have it hanging in my garage! The banner itself measures approximately 31.5" in width by 48" in height (4 feet), with two gold grommets in the top corners so it's ready to hang, the print is also only on one side. You're guaranteed to get one of these in your Stash Box.
Mr. Handy Enamel Pin Set
I bought one of these by itself last May 😆 not that I'm complaining haha, it's a pretty awesome pin IMHO. Both pins are about 2.5" in WIDTH, which doesn't feel huge until you actually have it in hand, it definitely needs a sturdier card backing!! This is part of their 'Pin of the Month' program and this particular design is limited to 600 units, soft enamel with 2 pin posts with butterfly clutch backings. If you'd like to see more photos you can check out my May 2020 haul here! I've seen some people receive this OR the glow in the dark Grognak pin in their box. Which one would you rather get?
Lucky Revolver Pendant Necklace by Han Cholo
Here's the '1 random mystery item' I received, and this one surprised me out of everything 😱😱😱 a 'Lucky' Revolver from Fallout: New Vegas pendant necklace by Han Cholo!! The pendant itself measures approximately 1.9" in width, on a 24" long chain and is absolutely beautiful in person, I really don't think any amount of photos or video can capture it.
Here are some super closeups that nobody asked for LOL but for real the detail on this is amazing!! I'm in love 😍💖 my first Han Cholo piece too!!
I should also add you're not guaranteed to get this, from what I've seen I'm the ONLY one who's gotten this in their box 😅 I've seen others receive the 4 piece coaster set or one of the metal cards in their Stash Boxes so I feel like I'm really lucky I pulled this one haha.
And here it is all together laid out on top of the Red Rocket banner because I didn't wanna fold it up for photos 😆 it took A LOT of ironing to get all those creases out from it being folded haha. What do you think about Stash Box 005, worth it or nah? Do you have a favorite item or which items are you hoping to get if you purchase one for yourself?
Also worth noting as I kinda ranted about it in my video LMAO but mine shipped in a poly bag mailer 🌚 I'm really not happy about being charged $15 for shipping for it to ship like that, especially considering everything else I've ordered has shipped in a box. Luckily mine arrived in decent condition, but it is something to be aware of in case you're expecting yours to arrive in pristine condition.
I hope y'all found this unboxing post informative, don't forget to check it out on my YouTube channel too, it's my first video in over a year so trying to get back into editing was certainly a challenge. I'm proud I managed to get it done even if it did take me literally all afternoon to figure it out, haha 🤣 I even added captions too, so you can still watch it even without sound! Huzzah! Anyways, time to edit more blog posts and videos, so see y'all in the next one~
