Halloween Gift Guessers: Gift of the Survivor

On the second day of BLOXTober - the name dubbed to an October full of Halloween gifts, costume apparel and a game event; the Gift of the Survivor was released. The gift, priced at 500 R$ is the most expensive gift so far, but this price tag also gives an indication to the contents inside. This will be explained later on in this Gift Guessers post.

Our gift guesser theories are as follows:

1. The description reads:

 "Risin' up, straight to the top / Had the guts, got the glory / Went the distance now I'm not gonna stop / Just a man and his will to survive"

For those of you born in the 21st century, these are the lyrics from the famous song 'Eye of the Tiger' by Survivor. This also links with the actual name of the gift - referring to the band's name. Breaking down the name of the song, we can pick out the word 'Eye' hinting towards the contents of the gift. This prediction is supported by the use of the numerous eyes imprinted onto the gift wrapping, with the tiger stripes reflecting the chorus of the song. 

2. When the Gift of the Survivor is inserted into ROBLOX Studio, the asset is simply named 'eyegiftbox'. This reinforces the idea that an eyeball hat will come out of the gift. This is likely as ROBLOX released the Gift of Turbo Vision last Halloween which contained the Ochre eye - a retexture of the original Halloween hat; the Crimson Catseye. The fact that eyeball hats have come out at Halloween before, and that a gift heralded one inside makes it very likely that the Gift of the Survivor houses a 'Tiger Eye' - continuing a series of sorts. 

3. Finally, the gift's price suggests that there will be an eyeball inside. This is due to the fact that all previous hats in the 'eyeball series' have been priced at exactly 500R$ - the same price as the gift. This is also the same price tag the Gift of Turbo Vision held. 

Of course the item inside could prove to be more losely based on a tiger eye in the form of a hood, bandana or Tiger skin headgear. It is most likely, however, that it will be an eyeball retexture featuring tiger stripes and a detailed, glistening pupil.
