A Mostly Villainous Package – September 2017 TMNT Box Review
If we can say anything definitive about the TMNT Box, it is that you never quite know what to expect from this service. Most subscription boxes contain at least one familiar item per month (usually a t-shirt or a vinyl figure), but in this case you never know exactly what to expect. When they do send something routine, it’s usually a small addition to the box — like a coin or a sticker. As for the big ticket items, it’s difficult to say what they’ll come up with each month, but they usually find a way to surprise us.
September has brought yet another interesting selection which includes a few familiar sights. That being said, I definitely wasn’t expecting anything fragile!
16 oz Shredder Glass
It’s not every day that a subscription box sends something made of glass through the mail. Thankfully, there was no damage to the cup because it was very well wrapped. From what I can tell, this Shredder glass is just one of the designs you could have received in your package. The Shredder cup is actually a very high quality item and I can see myself using it for years to come. Perhaps I should make some kind of Turtle Punch to drink! Get it?
Krang/Donatello Collectible Coin
The fine people at TMNT Box have sent yet another interesting collectible coin. Based on what I’ve been told, we can actually expect a few more of these coins in future boxes. This time around, they’ve chosen to highlight Donatello on one side and Krang on the other. This pairing actually makes some sense, as Donnie has always been considered the brains of the group and Krang is literally a talking brain!
Foot Soldier and Splinter Stickers
These stickers are a lot like the ones from July’s TMNT Box, but they feature two different characters. Stickers aren’t exactly a high ticket item, but they can be a nice addition to an already interesting subscription box. Although we got Bebop and Rocksteady last time, this package includes Splinter and a Foot Soldier. These are perfect for young shellheads, but I imagine that even some older fans might enjoy collecting a few TMNT stickers.
Krang and TMNT Magnets
This is a somewhat new addition to the TMNT box, and I’m definitely glad to see it. Magnets can be very useful for hanging things up on the refrigerator, but they also make nice decorative pieces for your kitchen. Even though they aren’t the highest quality TMNT magnets I’ve ever seen, something tells me that they’ll get plenty of use in my household. Considering everything else that came in this subscription box, these little accessories just supplement an already nice selection of Ninja Turtles goodies!
Although most of these were low value items, they were also pretty nice. The Shredder glass alone is probably worth at least $10-$15, and the collectible coin could run you around $5-$10. The stickers and magnets might cost another $5 on average, giving us a total value of about $20-$30. That’s not a bad deal for a subscription box that costs only $9.99 per month!
