The Bam! Box Unboxing: Adult Cartoon

 

What is the Bam Box?

The Bam Box is monthly subscription box for collectors. Each month contains nerdy and geeky items as well as autographed collectibles. The Bam Box also has an auto upgrade and instant winner system. You could receive extra items or automatically receive an upgrade to an item in the box. Upgrade examples are variant pin, print and comic colors.

What’s in the Box?

The pin for this month is from South Park. You could have received Cartman or Kenny as well. I really like Chef from the earlier seasons of the show. He was one of  my favorite characters before Isaac Hayes went nuts.

The first item is a metal print of Homer Simpson. It’s a very interesting item and would look great on my wall. I love the Simpsons and have been a fan of it since I was younger. My grandparents didn’t like me watching it which only made it cooler!

The first autographed item is from Dynamite Comics. It’s signed by cover artist Ken Haesar. Not a big fan of Betty Boop and would have liked something different. The comic books in these boxes have been misses for me. I was hoping for something more mainstream like Marvel or DC.

The next autographed item is from cosplayer Kristen Lanae. While it’s a sexy picture, it’s not for me. I’m not a big fan of cosplay and this item is wasted on me. I will probably try and sell it on ebay.

The last autographed item is “Bevis and Butthead Attack Rick and Morty” by KC Day. This is my favorite item in this box since it’s a mash up of two great shows. I will definitely be putting this up on the wall soon.

Final Thoughts

While this was a great theme the people at Bam Box missed the mark. I was hoping for more mainstream adult cartoon items and something more than just prints. This was a make or break box and I’m sad to say I will not be renewing my subscription. I had high hopes for this service after seeing past boxes but the last two months have been disappointments. I’m sure other subscribers liked all the items this month but I’m not one of them. If the quality and variety of items change in the upcoming months, I may resubscribe.

What’s in the Box

 

The shirt this month is from Fantastic Beasts. I recently watched Fantastic Beasts and loved it. Even though it doesn’t show Harry and the gang, it’s a great  It has a lot of text but it’s simple. Last month’s Negan Sluggers shirt would have been better if it was just text. I really like the color as well.

 

The Doctor Strange item is an exclusive Q-Fig. I just watched the film and I thought it was great and now I can put Doctor Strange on display. I hope Loot Crate includes figures more often.
The Big Trouble in Little China item is a comic mashup with Escape from New York, another memorable Kurt Russell film.

 

 

 

The Game of Thrones item is a lined journal. The front and back cover shows Melisandre in both her forms with the line “The night is dark and full off terrors.” The inside of the journal is not bad, I might actually use this.

 

The pin is from The Elder Scrolls Online, a PC video game. I wanted to get the game for console but my friends were not interested in it. The pin lets you upgrade to the Imperial Edition from the standard edition but it’s only for PC. I need to build or buy a gaming rig since I’m missing out on so many games! If you want the code, leave a comment below. I’ll give it to the first person who asks.

Final Thoughts

This month was not bad. The shirt and figure made this months box. The comic was okay but I was hoping for something more from the Big Trouble in Little China. The journal is alright but I don’t know if I will use it. I would have preferred a house banner over an image of Melisandre.If you want to sign up use this LINK, also use the promo code BOX5 to save $5 off your first subscription.

November 2016 Bam Box Theme: Adult Cartoons

Adult Cartoons

Last month’s theme was okay. Horror films are not my thing but I did like the autograph prints. I was thinking about canceling but then they announced this month’s theme. I grew up watching most of these shows. My parents and grandparents did not want me to watch shows like the Simpsons and Bevis and Butthead. I’m an adult now and I can watch anything I want! I’m excited to see what the prints are going to be this month especially the autographed item. Lets hope it’s something good!

Loot Crate November 2016 Theme: Magical

Taken from the Loot Crate email.

Next month is the theatrical release of two anticipated movies, Doctor Strange and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I’m not a huge Doctor Strange fan but the trailers look interesting. I’m a fan of the Harry Potter series and I can’t wait for another movie. It’s set in the United States, which will give us a new perspective of the wizarding world. Game of Thrones is my favorite TV show right now and I hope it something good. I just saw Big Trouble in Little China not too long ago. It’s now one of my favorite Kurt Russell films.

Rumors of items in this crate are a Dr. Strange figure and a Fantastic Beasts wearable. I hope we get a Big Trouble in Little China shirt but I’m not holding my breath. I’m also curious what the Game of Thrones item will be.

Loot Crate November 2015 Theme: Combat


No shirt this month but two collectible figures is not bad. I hope they are either an exclusive Pop! vinyl or a unique figure. I haven’t played many fighting games lately with the last one being Injustice. I enjoy them and I have many fond memories of Street Fighter 2 on Genesis. Blizzard may have an item from Heroes of the Storm but I’m not sure what the The Hunger Games item. I’m thinking maybe a book or a pin. This month is going to be interesting; I can’t wait.
