BAM! Box Exclusive “Frederick Charles” Fan Art Pins by artist, Brian Romero – Retail Value Unavailable

Next to Michael Meyers, Freddy Krueger may be my favorite horror movie villain! I was so pleased to see this creep in this month’s BAM! Horror box! This pin was the more mild and wider released of the three variations, but I would have been pleased with any of the three selections!

BAM! Box Exclusive “13” Fan Art Collection Art Print by artist, Oscar Van – Retail Value Unavailable

To be honest, I had no idea what this was referencing till I went to good ol’ Google! The prints’ art references the early 2000s movie, Thir13en Ghosts. There are two variants and I got the rarer of the two that is limited to only 500! The print is signed by the artist, Oscar Van, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

BAM! Box Kellen Goff aka “Freddy” of Five Nights at Freddy’s Signed 8×10 – Retail Value Unavailable

Guys, I have seen this Freddy character on merch at Target and Five Below, but this is the first time I really read up on the independent video game, Five Nights at Freddy’s. I like the concept that revolves around a Chuck E. Cheese-like restaurant Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. The first of the five games revolves around night time security guards trying to escape the homicidal animatronic characters at Freddy’s! This 8×10 is signed by the voice of Freddy, Kellen Goff, which is pretty neat if you are a big fan of the games and movies!

Imhotep’s Scarab Ring as worn by Boris Karloff by Dark Matter Props – Retail Value Unavailable

Finally, we have a recreation of the Scarab ring from 1932’s, The Mummy, by Dark Matter props. This may be one of my favorite props, in part because I can wear it. Universal Horror movies and Boris Karloff are legendary, so this is an awesome piece!

Verdict: This month’s BAM! Horror was alright, but not amazing. My favorite pieces were the Freddy Krueger enamel pin and the Scarab ring from The Mummy. I would love to see more wearable horror themed items in this box, whether it be other pins, t-shirts, hats, etc. Heck, even exclusive figures or Funko collectibles would be a fantastic change up! The signed photos and art are fine but aren’t terribly exciting. I am hoping the September Anniversary box and October Halloween box will be more energetic and thrilling in terms of their selections! Fingers crossed, fellow horror fiends!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the October box. From Bam!:

Your box will ship on the 28th of every month. Please order by 5 pm on the 17th to get the current box.

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $26.99 + $7.99 shipping, which means that each of the 6 items in the box has an average cost of $5.83.
