“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
SciFiChick.com received a box for review purposes.
The box comes with a half sheet, full-color information on what’s in the box.
This month’s theme was ABILITIES!
Right away, I knew I was going to enjoy this one!
Spider-Mander Pin – One of the unique and fun things about this box is that they offer 1-Up variants of some of the items in the box! I scored a Gold version of the pin (limited to 250).
Tony Todd “Zoom” Signed Photograph (Retail $20?) – Signed prints usually go for about $20 each at conventions. And signed items in Bam Boxes always come with a card of authenticity. Fans of Flash will appreciate this cool item.
EXCLUSIVE “The Wolverine” Print, signed by Rick Martin This is a very cool piece, signed and numbered by the artist. I love this one.
“One Ring” from the Lord of the Rings (Retail $10-15?) – 600 lucky people received a 1-Up for a gold-plated version! Still, this is a fun replica even as the black variant.
Google Cardboard VR Viewer (Retail $15) – I’ve had a lot of fun with this little gadget. It took me a while to find a QR code that worked to stop double-vision, but now it works like a charm. There are several free VR apps that work with it that I can’t wait to try out.
Magnetic Thinking Putty (Retail $10) – This was another great item too. The texture of the putty is like silly putty, but magnetic. So, when you get the little magnet close to it, the magnet snaps to the putty and slides through – embedding itself. It’s fun for all ages – I’m sure my niece or nephew will try to confiscate it.
Summary:This month was a great month of curation and value! At first glance, there didn’t seem like much in the box. Surprisingly, I liked both of the signed prints and the cardboard VR viewer was not something would’ve ever bought for myself but ended up really enjoying it. Finds like this are what makes mystery boxes so much fun.
