Dark Crystal Lunchbox

2013-12-11 16.43.34

It’s got Jen! It’s got Kira! It’s got a bag full of Doritos and a Thermos full of Kool-Aid! It’s the Dark Crystal lunchbox, straight from eBay to me!

Last week on Throwback Reviews Sean and I along with special guest Doug McCoy did an entire show dedicated to The Dark Crystal. While Sean and Doug are both fans of the film, I was more of a Labyrinth guy as a kid. Unfortunately for me eBay is fresh out of Labyrinth lunchboxes, so I had to settle for this Dark Crystal one instead.

I love displaying my retro lunchboxes but I also love bringing my lunch to work with them, which I do fairly regularly. Funny, I never noticed until this morning how much Aughra looks like a baggie full of raisins.

If you’re a fan of the film as we are here at the Retroist, don’t forget to check out some of our previous Dark Crystal posts and the Retroist Podcast discussing the film.

    Confession time: I have never seen the Dark Crystal; but I know a thing or two about lunch and the boxing of same and I would love to find this one.

    Flack, did you ever get the message I sent you (don’t remember where) about the Photon lunchbox in a local store? Not sure if it is still there but I can check.

  2. I just checked and Dark Crystal is available via Netflix rental (but not streaming).

    I don’t remember seeing that message, but I already have a Photon lunchbox. Thanks for thinking of me though — I love Photon! One of these days I’m going to track down one of the original helmet/gun combos and/or the paperback books (I think there were six in all).

    I would buy Dark Crystal anything.

    Dark Crystal Fizzgig fuzzy slippers? Yes. Dark Crystal tire iron? I need. Dark Crystal coat rack? I’m in.

    Nevermind the Photon books; I’ll send you Photon books. Find us a slightly used Photon ARENA.
