The BAM! Box Subscription Box Review + Coupon – May 2016
The BAM! Box is a geek subscription box that focuses on limited edition, exclusive, and autographed geeky items!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: The BAM! Box
The Cost: $24.99 + $4.99 S/H
COUPON: Use coupon code CJMARKET10 to save 10% off of your first box!
The Products: Limited edition, exclusive, and autographed geeky items with $60+ in value and 1 in 10 boxes contains an autographed item. Plus, every box is guaranteed to have an exclusive or limited edition art print.
The box comes with a large info sheet. There, you can find this month’s theme, “Abilities”, and a list of all the items in your box! I really liked how they did this box – they focused on super powers and dedicated an item to each one.
The first thing to note is that this is the first month of their ongoing Bam! Pins. This month is a mash-up of Charmander and Spider-Man.
Tony Todd “Zoom” Signed Photograph – Value ??
One of the signed items this month comes from CW’s “The Flash”. Zoom is voiced by Tony Todd, who also happens to play the role of Candyman in the horror classic. Very cool. This is the type of item you subscribe to this box for!
“The Wolverine” Designed and Autographed by Rick Martin – Value ??
This is the second autographed item, and I love it. Very cool print of Wolverine. I like these ones that are numbered – totally into the FOMO/exclusivity of it. They do a great job of getting these autographs.
Magnetic Thinking Putty – Value $10?
I listed a similar product from Amazon for comparison. This was in homage to my favorite character in the Marvel Universe – Magneto. This putty has micron-sized magnets in it, and it comes with a square magnet.
It was fun to put the magnet on top and watched it get sucked to the bottom!
I had also left it out over night and it crawled up my scissors!
I tried to get a gif of the putty “reaching out” to the magnet for example!
“One Ring” From Lord of the Rings – Value $10-15?
The power of invisibility goes to the one ring to rule them all, your precioussssssss!
It comes on a chain so you can keep it safe like Frodo. There was a gold variant in some boxes as well – I wish I had received that one!
Finally, here’s a look at the ring itself.
Cardboard VR headset – Value ??
We had received these in a past Birchbox Man – and they were really fun to test out! I definitely recommend giving these a try if you have them. I’m excited to see if any of the big VR technology can start to really take hold towards the end of this year! Does anyone have the Oculus? Or are you planning on getting PlayStation VR?
I was also lucky enough to get a bonus signed issue of Gen 13 #41! I’m not familiar with this title, though, so I’m not sure #41 is where I want to start.
Verdict: I always have a blast unboxing The Bam! Box. While this box didn’t reach the high water mark of last month’s amazing Jason mask for me, I still really enjoyed the autographs and surprisingly had a blast messing around with this magnetic putty! The always include some fun collectibles (the batarang comes to mind!) with their autographs, and I feel like they’re getting better as they go – it’s a good sign!
