An Eclectic Selection of Exclusive Collectibles – November 2017 TMNT Box Review

One look at the image above will likely surprise some of our readers. Needless to say, the limited edition t-shirt design on display here is one of the big ticket items included in this package. This artwork might be much louder than anything else we’ve seen from the subscription box thus far, but it’s also one of the most unique Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products I have ever seen. In addition to the shirt, this box also contained a few smaller collectibles that just about any fan can enjoy. With that said, let’s take a look at the contents of this month’s TMNT Box!

SPLINTER T-SHIRT

This exclusive TMNT t-shirt design comes to us from artist Zachary B. Friedberg and the artwork is entitled “No Shredder, No Shoes, No Problem.” Although the colors and concept on display here may not be of interest to some fans, I can personally see myself wearing this with a hoodie or a Hawaiian shirt during the spring and summer months.

Perhaps November is an odd time of year to promote this kind of graphic tee, but it’s still an excellent piece of original art which you won’t find anywhere else. I’ve got two Splinter t-shirts now, and I have to say that this one might actually be my favorite.

 

RAPHAEL/ROCKSTEADY COLLECTIBLE COIN

As you can see, TMNT Box has decided to continue their work with these awesome collectible coins. This month brings us Raphael and Rocksteady, two of the most hot-headed characters in the entire franchise.

I could be wrong, but I believe this marks the final turtle in the series, which would mean that any further coins would have to feature different heroes and villains. Thankfully, there are still quite a few people and mutants in the turtle-verse to continue this series of coins for quite some time!

MIRAGE MICHELANGELO COLLECTIBLE PIN

In my humble opinion, this collectible pin might actually be the best item in the entire box. With artwork taken from the original Mirage comics, the Michelangelo pin included in November’s TMNT Box is sure to please pretty much any long time fan.

Personally, I’m hoping this is just the first of all four Mirage turtles in pin form! One thing is for sure – I am definitely wearing this pin to my next convention. Say what you will about the rest of this subscription box, but I don’t think anyone could come up with anything negative about this fantastic item.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Even though the Splinter t-shirt might not be every fan’s cup of tea, I doubt anyone will complain about that Michelangelo pin. While the graphic tee is worth anywhere from $10-$20, it’s fair to assume that both the pin and the coin would fetch around $5-$10 on the open market. That puts the value of this box at anywhere from $20-$40, which is pretty darn good for a $9.99 monthly subscription. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have much to complain about when it comes to November’s TMNT Box.

What do you think? Is the Splinter t-shirt a little too loud for your tastes? Do you want to see more collectible coins and pins? Share your thoughts on this TMNT Box either in the comments below or on Facebook/Twitter.

Although the TMNT t-shirt might not be for everyone, the Michelangelo pin makes up for any eclectic design choices.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
