Wish this thing would sell out already. It screws up the price for Punch-Out!! on my CAG wishlist.

I picked this up during the lightning deal, and it's honestly not a terrible piece of game-related merchandise. I think if the whole 'cancer' thing hadn't come up, it'd certainly sell better.

That being said, I can't even really recommend it for $6.98... it's nice and all, but you'd really just be paying for the King Hippo crown. As someone mentioned, the lightning deal was $2.98, and this is actually just the normal price it's been for a while, so this isn't really a 'deal'.

It doesn't come with a cancer disclaimer, so it's definitely not the worst part of this kit.

I ordered it for $3 as well. It's not too bad for a punching bag, chocolate bar, and crown. I'm a little confused by the cancer tag on the boxers, though. The crown looks surprising durable and heavy, I thought it would be a cheaper plastic.

I picked it up for three bucks while it was the lightning deal and after checking it out I'd say it's worth $6.98 if your a fan of Punch-Out. The king hippo crown was better than I expected it to be and my kid loves the desktop punching bag. The other two items, the chocolate bar and the boxers, I took a look and and just left in the box. Even if the boxers didn't cause cancer I'm not sure I would wear them. Seems like tissue paper would provide better warmth and coverage.

Totally worth $3. Might even be worth $7.

The crown is pretty solid and the punching bag is a fun gift. Perfect for White Elephant or Gag Gift.

I'd say don't buy it. I got it the other day and it's a bunch of garbage I wish I didn't spend money on. Only buy it if you want a constant reminder of why you should not make impulse buys.

Got this free with Punchout. I expected the worst, but I have gotten more mileage out of the punching bag and crown than I thought (I like putting random junk on my desk at work).
Let me show you them.

That seems like an easy fix. Just don't wear these shorts in California.

Everyone does realize that California is a leader amongst the "may cause cancer" line? They have a whole document that outlines it, including things like 'alcoholic beverages', 'lead', & 'oral contraceptives'.

For your reading pleasure: California's 19 pages of "cancer causing ingredients".

Actually like 90% products you can buy now anywhere has the same label about California, and ONLY California. I have own 5 products with that label, so you shouldn't skip out on a great deal just because of the label especially when it is only in 1 State out of the entire US and World for that matter.

Living in CA and Los Angeles specifically, I breathe carcinogen everyday so that label really shouldn't be cause for alarm. What prevent me from adding this to my collection is that I just don't fancy keeping a chocolate bar for many years...
