I’ll let them explain:

These items include but are not limited to, ALL types of Funko products from Fabrikations to keychains, superhero mugs, headphones, movies, comics, and many more truly epic items. Our Deluxe boxes come with 4-6 of the most awesome items anyone could wish for. These items include but are not limited to, Funko POP items, action mini-figures, comics, lanyards, and many more truly awesome items. Whether you get a premium or deluxe box you can always be sure to get an awesome geeky or nerdy t-shirt that’ll definitely put a smile on your face.
I got in April’s box was a shirt, a comic, some candy, a bobble head, a plush doll, a lanyard, bag, button and keychain.
I’ll rundown each thing and give you my thoughts.
First up is the shirt. It is confession time: My wife loves Batman. I know, it’s a crime. But hey, she likes Spider-Man too. The shirt is something she loved as soon as she saw it. Her and my daughter (she’s pregnant, and about to pop!) are modeling it to in the gallery at the bottom of the post. When you order your box, you will need to provide details of your shirt size ( because there is nothing worse than getting shirt that’s too small or too big!)The shirt that I got was a Joker/Batman shirt from The Dark Knight. Because I should not be so serious. As
Keeping up with the Batman theme, This month’s book was the prequel to the latest Arkham Knight Video Game. I found it an enjoyable read. It picks up where the last game left off, and gives you a glimpse of the new villain for the game. It’s written by Batman and Robin scribe Peter Tomasi, so if you’ve enjoyed his work on that, you’ll enjoy his work here. Now the plush doll/action figure is Batman as well. I like it because it’s cute, and the costume is based on the Art Adams era Batman, with his blue and grey color scheme, with his chest having the yellow oval with the black bat. It’ll look very cute in my daughters room. There is a full line of these dolls, and you can find them here.
Behold! It is Galatus! The thing is are perfect for your desk. They are easily standable, and it is awesome to have this little guy on my desk. Perfect assessor
KEYCHAIN: Raphel of the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles fame, on your keys.
LANYARD, BAG, BUTTON
I lumped these all together because they are all related. They advertise the Box. They want you to refer a friend (and there is a rewards program for that!) and these are perfect for doing so.
Okay, I know that you probably are wondering if this the Batman Space or if it is Spider-Man Crawlspace. Lo, there be a Spider-Man item! It’s ringpops! They taste wonderful! My wife liked them too! Simple three pack for your taste buds to enjoy. They are from the Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I assure you, they’re better than the actual movie. (Wah Wah)
