The latest TMNTbox arrived this week. But it's arrival reminded me that I never got around to posting a review of the box in April. I wish I could say
that I have a good excuse, like that the box was late once again. But the truth is that TMNTbox's second offering at their new lower price point just
left me so underwhelmed that I set it aside and completely forgot about it.
Packaging - 4/10The packaging remains the same once again. There's nothing terribly wrong with the box per say. Though now that they only include a couple of items each month, it seems like a lot of wasted space. And as I have lamented in the past, there is still no effort improve the experience with any sort of background on the items. Although, since they tend to repeat the same items so many times, perhaps they don't want to encourage customers to buy more of the items that they receive in the boxes so they can continue to include them in future boxes.
Contents 2/10This is the second month of the new, smaller TMNTboxes. So we knew to expect fewer items. And the April boxes have just two items:
Value - 5/10The TMNTBox are selling at their new, lower price tag of $9.99 plus shipping and handling. It's not a steal. But given that a Dorbz figure on its own carries a suggested retail price of $10, I can't complain about the price too much either. Of course, since the Dorbz figures have been out for almost six months now, you should be able to find them for less than retail fairly easily if you wanted to.
Happy Hunting:The website for TMNTBox is TMNTbox.com. So if you have the urge to sign up, that's where you can do so. Though to be honest, I'm looking forward to the end of my subscriptions in a few months.
