Last night was a highly anticipated day, because Evike was, once again, going to sell its "Box of Awesomeness" (BOA) for the "Pre-Airsoftcon 470K Fan Celebration". The "Box of Awesomeness" was announced in an e-mail newsletter the day before and it was going to become available at 6:30 PM PST. There are only going to be 269 boxes available for purchase.
In anticipation to purchase this box, I had already gone through its list of possible goodies and decided that I was going to get a box. So I had set-up my browsers to the "Daily Deals" page, the "Box of Awesomeness" page, and the "Coupon Page" to ensure my success. I had read the user comments and determined that the "FREESHIP" coupon was the only coupon that would work. Though I was still going to try to use the 20% off coupon as well.
I had set my alarm clock to remind me at 6:20 PM to get ready. I logged into Evike's web site at that time. At exactly 6:30 PM, I refreshed the "Daily Deals" page and found the "Box of Awesomeness" to be in stock. I immediately added the item to my shopping cart and proceeded to check out. I finished checking out at 6:35 PM. At that time, I noticed that the "Box of Awesomeness" is already sold out.
The box won't ship until October 8th. And I would still have to patiently wait for its ground shipment. When I get the box, I will provide a full review of it. In addition, I will provide reviews for each of the major items in the box.
In the mean time, let's go over the list of possible goodies I could get and the order of my preference.
$500 Shopping Spree!
$500 value! 1 Winner!
This is likely the most preferred win for most folks. Because it lets you in control of what you can get versus being handed something in this deal.
World's first CB-88 Chrono Blaster Evike.com Custom Build Rifle Advanced Computer Chip controlled AEG Rifle.
$185 Value / 1 winner!
There are rumors that Evike may or may not sell this gun in masses in the future. I'm collecting science fiction airsoft guns, so I would definitely want one of these. Sadly, "This item may not ship until beginning of November".
A Custom Hi-CAPA Gas Blowback, a full metal gas grenade launcher, a piece of Lima Victor limited edition gear and a used AEG from Evike marketing office.
$N/A Value - 1 winner
I needed a secondary AEG. This win would serve its purpose. Plus, it would giving me a side arm and a grenade launcher, which would be interesting to use.
Two Mystery Skirmish grade full metal gearbox Airsoft AEG!
$240+ Value - 100 winners
I needed a secondary AEG so that when I take apart one gun, I would still have another one to play with. Having two extra guns means I can build one for indoor and one for outdoor or a sniper. This is one of the two most likely wins.
A Mystery Skirmish grade full metal gearbox Airsoft AEG! AND a full metal 1911, Hi-capa or M9 GBB Pistol by WE-Tech
$240+ Value - 100 winners
I'm not all that thrilled about having a sidearm. But given one, I can definitely use it. This is one of the two most likely wins.
FN Licensed FN-57 Airsoft Gas Blowback by Marushin. + An skirmish grade mystery full size metal gearbox AEG!
$N/A Value / 1 winner!
Same as previous items. I looked up the FN-57 on Wikipedia. It is not too thrilling for me. But the chance of getting these item is only 1 out of 269 chance. So I'm not too worried about it.
The Evike.com USA Exclusive MG42 Airsoft AEG Machine Gun by Matrix.
$630+ Value / 1 winner!
Possibly the only thing on the list that would be worth more than the $500 shopping spree. And it is not a M4!!! It's an interesting gun to own if I get it from the BOA. Not something I would buy myself. "Shipping time may be end of October."
An Evike.com Custom AUG H-BAR Airsoft AEG Rifle with Integrated scope and bipod.
$380+ Value / 2 winner!
Yes! I want to build a custom DMR or sniper rifle. This would serve the purpose well.
Matrix AEG Electric Powered AEG AK SVD Rifle with reinforced internal parts, metal receiver & Real Wood furniture.
$299+ Value - 3 winners!
One of my favorite guns in FPS video games. I am thinking of getting one for sniper role. If I win it, it'll be in for a lot of modification. Evike claims that it is "currently highest performing in it's class with the Real Sword AEG SVD no longer available." A great treat if I get it.
A Custom Build Evike.com World-wide Exclusive Socom-47 AEG
$400+ Value / 1 winner!
This would be an interesting custom gun to own and would serve well as my second rifle. But "This item may not ship until beginning of November" really hinders my desire for it.
An Evike.com USA Exclusive G&P Custom "Silver Bullet" M4 CQB Carbine with G&P High performance gearbox & Motor.
$320+ Value - 2 winner!
Another M4. :-( But at least it is silver and look different from everyone else's M4. Looks good too. A good win.
An Evike.com Exclusive WE Barry Burton custom Bio-Hazard M9 Limited Edition Airsoft GBB Pistol. (With 3 extra magazines)
$190+ Value / 3 winner!
I'm not a fan of pistols. But I am collecting science fiction airsoft guns. So I actually would like to get this gun. And the three extra magazines will really come in handy. A very good win and three possible winners. Thumb up.
CAA Roni P226 Carbine Airsoft GBB SMG Pistol - Dark Earth
$190+ Value / 3 winner!
Like I said, I'm not a sidearm fan. And this item is only worth $45 more than the cost of the BOA. And I'll have to pay the high cost of getting more pistol magazines. But I'll use it if I get it.
APS Full Metal M4 URX raptor Airsoft AEG EBB Rifle with APS newest hybrid quick spring change gearbox and 5 (FIVE) spare hi-cap magazines!
$250+ Value -50 winners!
This would be the last item I would prefer to win. I already have an APS Mini Patriot M4 with all the features of the URX raptor. And I have already gone mid-caps, so the spare hi-cap magazines are useless to me. Luckily it is only the third highest chance of winning. And even if I do win it, it will a good spare gun.
