Good To Know: This box doesn’t have themes or info cards.
This box doesn’t come with a card or have monthly themes. Although, an argument can be made that this month has two themes – TMNT and Marvel.
TMNT Party Rockin’ Shirt – Value $17.95 on Amazon
I’m a 32-year-old man who grew up on the TMNT arcade games, cartoons, and movies – so you can see why the child in me is excited to wear this shirt! While I prefer a good understated geeky shirt now, this is still awesome.
Raphael Pocket POP – Value $7.82 on Amazon
This month came with a Funko item as well – this TMNT Pocket POP. I’m not sure if there was any variation to these, but I received Raphael.
Since this is a heavily themed TMNT box, I started looking around at older TMNT clips and was quickly reminded of my favorite Raphael moment from the first movie:
You just can’t beat that first movie!
I digress. Back to the items!
Here’s a look at Raph!
TMNT Lunch Box – Value $11.79 on Amazon
I would have LOVED this item when I was younger and obsessed with TMNT.
It’s got the classic ‘Turtle Power’ graphic on the back.
Here’s a look inside the lunch box – it’s pretty spacious.
TMNT Drinking Glass – Value $5?
I can’t find this exact glass online, but there were a number of similar glasses to compare it to. The glass I received had my personal favorite turtle on one side, Michaelangelo.
With Leo on the on the other side.
Wolverine String Doll – Value $5 on Amazon
One of the things that I loved just as much as the turtles when I was young, was the X-Men. I’m not sure why these string dolls are a thing – I’m not even sure that I’d like it as a kid (but probably, since it’s Wolverine).
Here’s a look at the doll.
Deadpool Air Freshener – Value $6.49 on Amazon
The final two items felt like filler to me. I can’t understand how an air freshener would cost $6, but I’m simply reflecting what Amazon is telling me.
Verdict: This was a fun box for me because it brought back a lot of memories. I wonder how much money I had dumped into arcade machines between the TMNT games and the X-Men arcade game – I probably don’t want to know. They seem to be grouping some items together recently, and while it’s still a complete mystery box – they are somewhat catering to a couple franchises in the past couple boxes.
