It’s the first Funpack of the new year! Dino Drac’s January Funpack is here, and it’s ready to lure you in with its hot mix of, uh, Batman and Gonzo. Keep reading for the deets.
Subscriptions are currently closed, but I have a solid number of spares that I can sell on an individual basis. The cost is $25, and that includes shipping to anywhere in the United States.
Given the cold weather, I wanted this Funpack to be extra-cozy. The kind of thing you can drag to the couch on a stay-at-home snowy night. Jump to the bottom to order one, or keep reading to learn about everything in this month’s box!
Leading the charge is a case-fresh, never-used copy of the Batman Forever Activity Book, from 1995! What a freakin’ score this is. Pages and pages of puzzles, mazes and other activities, all based on Batman Forever, with loads of quirky illustrations and even some black-and-white photos from the movie.
This book is SO much fun, and it’ll take you straight back to the days of elementary school book clubs and book fairs. In fact, I think that’s where these books were originally distributed! These aren’t ratty copies – they are crisp with fresh binding. Some of the back covers have a little wear from storage, but I know you’ll dig ‘em!
I’ve included plush dolls in prior Funpacks, but I think this might be my favorite yet. Keep a seat ready for your new/old Muppets Gonzo plush doll!
These are ridiculously cute! I didn’t measure them, but I think they’re around six or seven inches tall, and in absolutely perfect condition, complete with the original tags still attached! While undated, I believe they’re from the early 2000s… though they sure don’t look their age!
Each Gonzo doll has a plastic clip attached to its back, so if you wanna stick him onto your purse or backpack, have at it. Gonzo is dressed well, and ready to keep you company on those lonely nights when it’s just you and whatever you can dig up on Tubi.
It’s been a minute since we’ve had some killer trading cards in a Funpack, and I think this’ll help make up for lost time. From 2015, it’s a special double-pack of Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens cards!
These are unreal. Made by Topps, the goal was to create trading cards that looked and felt like the OG Star Wars cards from the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. The set features characters and scenes from the original and sequel trilogies, plus The Force Awakens.
Each set includes two packs with six cards in each, and Topps even included an exclusive bonus card in every package. You’d really have to HATE Star Wars to not enjoy these, but honestly, they’re so cool that they might soften your stance even if you do. I am so into these cards!
NOTE: Outer cardboard packaging may have some minor storage wear. Packs and cards are in perfect condition.
January is one of the few months of the year that I can get away with mailing you chocolate, and I wasn’t about to waste that opportunity. In fact, I’m doubling down!
You’ll each receive a Reese’s Big Cup with Pretzels, AND a Reese’s Big Cup with Potato Chips! Hooray for weird snacks! I’m sure you’ve seen photos of these delicious oddities on social media over the years. Well, now you have a chance to actually try them!
These are oversized peanut butter cups with other snack foods mixed in. Sounds weird, but they’re seriously delicious. Have yourself a little taste-test and decide which works better! (I know my vote, but for now, I’ll keep it to myself!)
This month’s 5×7” cardstock mini-poster is a hot one. It’s a copy of an old Pizza Hut advertisement starring the Ninja Turtles, and it’s absolutely frame-worthy. You’ll also receive this month’s exclusive 2×2” sticker, featuring Cool Ranch Doritos in their classic (and sorely missed) window bag.
Rounding things out, you’ll also receive this month’s Funpack Newsletter, plus an exclusive essay that will never be reprinted on the site!
This month’s essay collects some memories about what it was like to shop online in the late ‘90s and very early 2000s, when retailers were so desperate to make their mark that they did all kinds of insane promotions that we’re unlikely to ever see again. Enjoy the trip back!
So yep, you’ll get all of the above, for $25 shipped!
