And a card detailing the contents of the box with a look at early concepts.
Guardians 2 Tshirt – Not happy that it’s yet another black tee. And I’m not a fan of the POP-style shirts. And I don’t care for the two-toned look. So, I’ll be giving this to my niece.
Secret Empire Comic – Cute variant!
Star-Lord and Milano Dorbz Ride – While it’s cool that this is the first ever Dorbz ride, I would’ve preferred another POP instead.
Rocket and Groot Funko POP Set – I REALLY wish we would’ve gotten a new character in this box. The last Guardians box included these 2, so it was quite a disappointment. I would have loved a variant of ANY other character. I already have too many variants of these guys.
While the dual POP is cute, the rest of the box was a disappointment. Especially, considering this is my favorite Marvel series right now.

Doctor Who Shirt – I’m not a fan of the show, but I do like the fun Dalek design. And the gray, charcoal color is nice.
Comic and Pin – Generation X Comic and cardboard Super Mario Bros Coaster. I have all of this run of Generation X, but I’m a big fan so that’s ok. I’ve gotten a similar coaster in a previous bag.
There is also a instructions on how to frame a favorite shirt. This is a fun idea, if you have a unique design you want to keep on display.
Summary: This is the first shirt I’ve received that hasn’t either been Star Wars or Star Trek. I don’t like Dr. Who, but I do appreciate variety. And I have family members who do enjoy the show who I can pass this on to. If you need to replenish your geek wardrobe with nice quality tees, look no further. And the bonus comic is always fun too.

“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

The box has a mini mag called “Spoiler Booklet” with details on the box, with all possible items subscribers could receive.
This month’s theme was “Indestructible.”
“Indestructible Heroes” Parody Pin – There were 4 options that subscribers could receive – Superman (above), Hulk, or 2 limited edition Chuck Norris.
Assassin’s Creed Hidden Blade – The other option was a Captain America shield. While I’m a little bummed, this hidden blade replica is actually a much cooler, intricate design.
Bionic Woman – Lindsay Wagner Signed Photo – This is just awesome. I was definitely a fan of this and Wonder Woman as a child.
“Old Cat Logan” Print – This is pretty funny. It’d make a fun gag gift for a Wolverine fan.
Vampirella #1 Signed Comic – I’ll definitely be selling this, as I’m not a fan… to say the least.
Despite the comic, I thought this was a solid box of great picks. I love the unique items – like the Incredibuilds’ Assassin’s Creed model and signed pic of Lindsay Wagner.

The theme this month was REBELS!
Patch and Pin – these are small collectibles included in each box.
The box comes with a handy card detailing the items included.
Star Wars Rebels Tshirt – ANOTHER black tshirt. But the I do like the vibrant colors. Though the characters were already cartoons, and they’re barely recognizable as POPs.
EXCLUSIVE Chopper Mini Hikari – I could have done without this sparkly figure. There was a possibility of 5 different colors, but I just don’t like Hikaris, so I won’t be holding onto it.
EXCLUSIVE Captain Rex Funko POP – This is pretty basic, but I like that he’s holding guns in both hands.
EXCLUSIVE Darth Maul Funko POP – This one is awesome. The detail and design is great – and I don’t have a Darth Maul POP yet.
I love boxes with 2 POPs! It means I’ll at least love one of them. I do watch Rebels, though only recently – so I at least know most of the characters. I’m sure it will be a struggle to come up with different themes for this box after a while.
There are growing dangers in the wizarding world of 1926 New York. Something mysterious is leaving a path of destruction in the streets, threatening to expose the wizarding community to the No-Majs (American for Muggles), including the Second Salemers, a fanatical faction bent on eradicating them. And the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, after wreaking havoc in Europe, has slipped away…and is now nowhere to be found.
Unaware of the rising tensions, Newt Scamander arrives in the city nearing the end of a global excursion to research and rescue magical creatures, some of which are safeguarded in the magical hidden dimensions of his deceptively nondescript leather case. But potential disaster strikes when unsuspecting No-Maj Jacob Kowalski inadvertently lets some of Newt’s beasts loose in a city already on edge—a serious breach of the Statute of Secrecy that former Auror Tina Goldstein jumps on, seeing her chance to regain her post as an investigator. However, things take an ominous turn when Percival Graves, the enigmatic Director of Magical Security at MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), casts his suspicions on both Newt and Tina.
Now allied, Newt and Tina, together with Tina’s sister, Queenie, and their new No-Maj friend, Jacob, form a band of unlikely heroes, who must recover Newt’s missing beasts before they come to harm. But the stakes are higher than these four outsiders—now branded fugitives—ever imagined, as their mission puts them on a collision course with dark forces that could push the wizarding and No-Maj worlds to the brink of war.
Newt Scamander is a socially awkward man who connects better with creatures than humans. But with the help of some new friends, he must protect his magical creatures from false accusations as well as themselves from an ominous investigator.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a prequel to the Harry Potter series. With all of the magic and wonder of the Harry Potter books and films, this standalone story is a fantastic installment. The magical creatures are incredibly fun and exciting. The characters are complex and well-developed. And the story is a great combination of fantasy, mystery, suspense, and humor. While there are some dark elements, it’s still a great family film. And I hope to see a sequel with these characters soon.

Like the other mystery boxes from Funko, each box comes with an exclusive badge and pin.
And this detailed card of everything included in the box is handy.
Superman Tshirt – I really like the color of this shirt, but would have preferred it not be a Funko POP character.
Superman Comic #1 – I LOVE that they include comic variants in these boxes. And I only read ecopies of graphic novels of the DC lines, so it’s nice to get hardcopies.
Superman Pocket POP and Superman Retro Action Figure – This were a nice addition. I would of course have preferred an extra Funko POP, but this retro Superman will go great with my retro Wonder Woman from a past box.
EXCLUSIVE Classic Superman Funko POP! – I really love this design!
SUMMARY: This was a really fun box. Superman is probably my all-time favorite superhero. My mind reels with what could have been done with this box to take it over the top awesome. But the DC box has yet to do that. Hopefully with next month’s box, they’ll do something more unexpected.
