Bam Box May 2017 - Revenge Bad Blood - Sabretooth autographed 8x10

8×10 Sabretooth Print Signed By Tyler Mane – Value ??

Value is up to you on this one. Tyler Mane played Sabretooth in the first X-Men movie. I liked his portrayal a little bit more than Liev Schreiber’s – but I’d like to see them bring this character back properly – like Deadpool before the Deadpool movie – this character wasn’t done right.

As always, autographs from The Bam Box come with a certificate of authenticity.

Bam Box May 2017 - Revenge Bad Blood - The Punisher Print

The Punisher Art Print – Value $10?

You also get an exclusive, limited edition, print from Dave Perillo featuring one of my favorite characters – The Punisher.

There are two variants to this print – mine and a purple version that is limited to 500 copies.

Bam Box May 2017 - Revenge Bad Blood - Baba Yaga 50 caliber bullet bottle opener

Baba Yaga 50 Caliber Bullet Bottle Opener – Value $10-15 based on similar products

The last item in the box is inspired by John Wick – and let me just say, YES – you can’t have a “Revenge” box without John Wick these days!

Since John Wick is the “one you send to kill The Boogeyman”, this item is very appropriate to the character, theme, and movie.

Verdict: This box felt really light, and it turns out that it’s true – an item is missing due to issues and subscribers will get a bonus item in the June box. The items in the box definitely cover the value, but like many recent Bam Box themes, there hasn’t been that amazing hero item.

What did you think of the May 2017 “Revenge: Bad Blood” theme from The Bam Box?

  1. Solid c+ for effort. B for communication regarding their shipping problems. Overall, Bambox delivers more consistently that the other geek boxes. I hope they cap their subscriptions.

  2. No item was missing, it was late due to customs and they are making up for that for people who got April’s box by including a bonus item in June’s box if they get it

    • Totally misread that header on the sheet – thanks for this.

  3. Uhhh, a print, button, inconvenient bottle opener (could have at least been a keychain or something) and a signed photo of a meh character/actor…. for $35 dollars? How does that even come close to the $60+ value being advertised? I’ve considered this box, but I’m not so sure after this. Definitely feels like its missing a hero item.

    • Tyler Mane charges $30+ for autographs, pins are $10 value. look up this artists work, no way to put a real value on it, but one could say $20 easily, $10 – $15 for bottle opener. Like the items or not the value is there, if you get the limited variants it’s even more. People tend to ignore the fact that these autographs are authentic and that isn’t cheap.

  4. I was a bit bummed by the box, but they tend to make up for it every 2-3 months. I also heard they might be capping the number of subscribers because they’re getting to big too quickly.
