ThinkGeek Exclusive: Star Wars BB-8 Wallet

BB-8 Wallet

This ThinkGeek wallet is my new favorite. It’s a standard women’s wallet made by Loungefly and officially licensed. I LOVE the BB-8 cloud design. It’s geeky, yet pretty and subtle.

BB-8 Wallet

It’s a thin wallet that fits well in my purse. Yet there is plenty of slots for credit cards, space for bills on either side, and a zippered inside pocket for change. It’s perfect for my use and the perfect size.

Star Wars BB-8 Clouds Ladies’ Zip Wallet retails for $34.99.

Box Review: Bam Box – March 2018

Bam Box

The Bam Box was founded in 2015 by Bloof, the same team of geeks, comic book lovers and pop culture collectors that started ComiconAuction.com. We love collecting. We love the thrill of it, the mystery of it and especially that feeling you get when you have a collectible in your hands that you are really excited about. So we set out to bring something different to everyone.

There are some great subscription boxes on the market, but we felt there was still something missing. We went to the drawing board with the goal of creating the box we would want to show up on our doorstep. After a lot of ideas and prototypes we arrived at the Bam Box. From the design of the box to the items inside to the instant winners we send out, we accomplished what we wanted to do: give you the subscription box we would be jealous of.”

Cost: 1 month plan starts at $24.99 plus $7.99 s/h

Bam Box

This month the box just included a simple sheet of the items included. But it’s certainly better than nothing!

Bam Box

Ghostbusters Pin – This is a fun design – I love Ghostbusters.

Bam Box

Lonestar’s Birthright Pendant – I’m glad this was referenced in the page above, or I would have never guessed! This is a nice, heavy prop replica that Spaceballs fans will enjoy.

Bam Box

Infinity War Art Print – I really like this print – though I’m trying to figure out why Thor has his eye, when the artist went to the trouble of using the most recent looks of Captain America and Black Widow.

Bam Box

Greg Berg Signed Print – Apparently he was the voice of Donatello and Bebop from the TMNT cartoon. Meh.

Bam Box

Star Wars Data Storage Unit Prop Replica – This is another strange one that I would have never guessed. It’s very heavy, but pretty simple.

Summary:
I really enjoyed the art print this time. It’s probably my favorite item in the box. I wish there was a box or something that identified the pendant. Something on the back of the pendant that said “Spaceballs” would’ve been nice as well. Regular printed handouts will be back next month, but even this black and white page is better than having to go to the website to figure out what items are. I have no complaints this time.

Bam Box

There is a nice, glossy page of the items included, which is a necessity for some items at times!

Bam Box

T-800 CPU Brain Chip ReplicaTerminator fans can power up their Skynet unit. This is a nice, heavy replica that’s definitely heavier than an actual chip would be. But it won’t break!

Dana Scully FBI Badge Prop ReplicaX-Files fans could have also received a Fox Mulder badge.

Bam Box

Laura Vandervoort Signed Print – She played Supergirl on Smallville, she was the star of Bitten, but my favorite was her role on the V reboot.

Bam Box

“Harley Girl” Fan Art Print – This is a miss for me, as I don’t care for the pin-up look nor Harley Quinn.

Bam Box

Wakanda Fan Art Print – I usually don’t care for fan art. But this print of Black Panther is pretty great.

Summary:
There were no filler pins this time, which I didn’t mind at all! The descriptions on the list of included items is nice, but if I wasn’t a fan of the show or movie, I wouldn’t have known what franchise some items are from, like the chip. The Laura Vandervoort signed print was impressive. But the Black Panther print was my favorite item.

Star Wars Shirt – This is a fun cartoon design on a charcoal gray shirt. It’s a nice material that I’ll enjoy wearing.

Tee Blox

Star Wars Stickers – These were fun filler that matched the Star Wars theme.

Summary: I was happy to see a gray shirt instead of black again. The color and quality is great!
