I stand corrected. But you know what I mean... you have to be at the very least a young adult to remember the show back in the day when it was new.

Will I be able to see reviews and then decide whether I want to buy it, or would that month's window be closed by then?

well... you can only see the reviews of the May box that just passed. Obviously you can't see what's up for June because that defeats the purpose of it being a surprise blind box. At least the May box gives you a general idea of what to expect.

i checked on the site, you gotta order Julys by the 4th to get it, which is really dumb. You should just be able to buy it until like 3 days before the month ends. They ship out on the 14th. I won't be able to get it now cause i don't get paid till the week after. But unboxing videos do come out fairly quick so if you want to see what you missed you can check it out lol.

None of the boxes being shipped are the same. It's all random stuff. If you order for the July or August box isn't going to affect what goes in your box.

It's always random but it follows the same general Scheme for specific months. A Marquee item if you will, Like of the people i've seen who got the Classic and mixed, they all got the turtles in jail shirt and a mask.

Also on the classic they also all got the pocket pop figure.

I'm on the fence about signing up for this. I love the T-shirts, but the rest of the stuff feels a bit knick knack-ey to me

If you want Value, go with the Classic box, if you want just random merch go with the mix or Nick box

I finally got it when they dropped the price to 10. I'm glad they finally started giving out shirts. I felt dumb giving them a shirt size when month after month I wasn't getting any shirts. After the August box a try (with my bro there too) I finally dropped it. Kinda good timing since I saw the recent September box came with a Shredder pop which I already own.

Wow.... so the Turtle Box lasted for a few years before it died out a few years ago.

They changed a lot. At first it was 'choose if you want the 80's TMNT box or the 2K12 TMNT box, or a mix of both'. Then they just left it was a mix of a both, I'm assuming cause a lack of demand for both or not enough items to separate.

Then they dropped the price some and the items became pretty much 1 big item and a small thing just so you can't say you only got one thing lol. The lamest one was a TMNT-themed journal/notebook (like an empty book you would fill out) and like a pin or something. Been a while, forgot what it was.

Then they went quarterly which did give shirts and cool items. My bro still owns a light up TMNT lamp that changes colors. I still own some of the shirts and actually met Paulsen wearing one of them.

It only lasted an extra year after that quarterly thing. The final box was a huge box full of (I'm assuming) leftover pins, cups, tmnt squishy plushies and whatnot and a letter explaining it was the last box.
