Box Review: Bam Box – May 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

There’s a nice, full-color sheet with plenty of details about what’s in the box.

Bam Box

GI Joe Pin – Standard filler.

Bam Box

Fallout Platinum Chip Prop Replica – I don’t care for gaming, so I would have had no idea what this was.

Bam Box

Infinity War Art Print – This is the 3rd of 3 Avengers prints. It’s nice that they all have the a similar look. I’m very glad I didn’t get stuck with a black and white variant.

Bam Box

Stefan Kapicic (Colossus) Signed Print – I would’ve liked one of the other more realistic prints. But I definitely wont be keeping this cartoonish print.

Summary:
I enjoyed the Avengers art print again this time. This was another slim box, with only 2 prints, a small trinket, and a pin. But this still one of the least expensive boxes that wont bankrupt you.

Bam Box

We’re back to the nice, full-color sheet with plenty of details about what’s in the box. Love it.

Bam Box

Back to the Future Pin – I would have had NO clue who this was supposed to be without the detail sheet… and I’m a huge fan of the series. Unfortunately, this looks nothing like Marty McFly or Michael J Fox.

Bam Box

Super Troopers 2 Signed Print – Unfortunately, this isn’t scifi or fantasy, and the first installment never interested me. So, I definitely wont be seeing this one.

Bam Box

Han Solo’s Dice Prop Replica – I remember these from the last Star Wars installment. These are a nice, heavy replica with plenty of detail. I’ll be keeping these.

Bam Box

Infinity War Art Print – Like last month’s, this is another gorgeous print with some of my favorite characters. I like this print much more than the possible black and white variant as well.

Summary:
I enjoyed the art print again this time. And again, it’s probably my favorite item in the box. This seemed like another slim box, with only 2 prints, a small trinket, and a pin. But this still one of the least expensive boxes that wont bankrupt you. I like the variety of genres and the nod to Solo who has a movie out this month.
