Well it's November. So you know what that means, I'm late with the review of the latest TMNTbox again. Though I wasn't responsible
for the delay this time. For reasons unknown, the boxes did not ship out at the beginning of the month as usual. I did not receive my
boxes until the last week of October. I had also tried to drop the second box from my subscription since they no longer have the Classic
and Modern box options. But I still ended up receiving two. Oddly, one was almost an exact repeat of last month and the two boxes, both
of which should have been classic boxes, had significantly different items. So while questions still abound, lets see what this month's
boxes have to offer.
Packaging - 4/10No change in the box design yet again. That is no big surprise. Though I do wonder if the existing shape/size of the boxes is limiting the selection of items that can be included since it needs to be able to fit in the existing box size.
Contents - Box One 3/10, Box Two 5/10The first box I received this month had six items:
The second box had five items:
Value - Box One 2/10, Box Two 5/10The value of one of these boxes depends a great deal on whether you have any of the items already. And the likelihood of that increases greatly if you are already a TMNT collector. (It's all but guaranteed when you buy every TMNT figure you can find like yours truly.) Unfortunately it also seems like the likelihood also increases the longer you are a member when they repeat items. That really should change. The last thing they want if the service is to be a long term success is to give customers a disincentive to remain subscribers. But to their credit, there is no question that you are getting more product than the $16 to $20 price tag that the subscriptions cost.
Happy Hunting:As usual, if you are interested in these particular assortments of items, you're out of luck. But there is still time to sign up for next month at www.tmntbox.com.
