The first theme was Toonami.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The box is massive! It’s got great design inside, too – with little compartments and flaps that reveal items.

Adult Swim Box Winter 2017 Review – Toonami
This is the first delivery from the Adult Swim Box – and it was originally marked as the Fall 2017 box. It was delayed for quite a bit and is essentially now considered the Winter 2017 box (the Robot Chicken themed box is now marked as Spring 2018).
Toonami Shirt – Value $15?
The Toonami box start with an exclusive shirt design featuring TOM and SARA. It’s a 52/48 cotton/polyester blend – it’s VERY soft.
SARA Crystal Cube – Value $30?
I’m really not sure how to value this at all – my value is just a guess. I consider this the hero item of the box – and neat alternative to featuring a vinyl figure!
The transparent cube is a little under 2.5 inches tall and features an etched version of TOM’s AI pal – SARA.
Messenger Bag – Value $20-25?
You’ll also get this messenger bag – with is totally different from the “Vindication Emergency Kit” that they had spoiled – I’m not really sure what’s up the change, or if I missed an email – did you get this in your box as well?
It’s a pretty basic bag – with two large pockets for storage, handles, and the optional shoulder strap.
Toonami Mug – Value $10-15?
You’ll get this exclusive Toonami print mug.
I’m a big fan of the matte black color choice, as well.
TRAPPED #1 – Value $3.99
While TOM is featured in short segments on the show, you can read about the expanded universe in a comic series.
I like that comics are being used to really expand different fandoms – I can’t get enough of some shows, so it’s great to have comics as an option to get more and more!
This is where the subscription goes into left field a bit…
Fisher Space Pen ECL – Value $9
It includes the ECL model from Fisher Space Pen.
There isn’t anything exclusive about the pen itself other than the Toonami packaging.
The space pen can write in temperatures from -30 to +250 degrees. underwater, and in zero gravity – pretty cool.
Maglite Solitare – Value $10+ on Amazon
The final item in the box is a Maglite Solitare.
It’s branded with the Toonami logo on the side – but apart from that, it’s your typical little 3.5-inch flashlight.
Verdict: The box felt disjointed and underwhelming – not only for the cost but even from the awesome packaging and presentation. While the space pen and flashlight are useful – I don’t think they are items that anyone would expect in their Adult Swim box. They were odd choices. The shirt, mug, and crystal etching are cool – but weren’t enough to save it this quarter. While I’m disappointed with their first try, I’m still excited and hopeful that they right the ship with the next box.
