There are a few monumental events I remember from my days in elementary school. Every summer my sister and I were allowed to choose the lunch box that would define our upcoming year. There was a definite process to my selections. Something cartoony might have seemed too childish (especially for an 8 year old), which is why I’d go the film route. My two most memorable lunch boxes were from Gremlins and Rambo: First Blood Part 2. What was I thinking?
If you want to relive the days of your youth, Dark Horse has released several lunch boxes from the Hot Lunch exhibit. Back in 2005, the La-La Land Gallery held a custom lunch box show featuring over 30 artists. Eight of these designs have been released to collectors.
The designs are as follows:
Amanda Visell – A Robot Wants My Lunch Box
Gary Baseman – Lunch of Unearthly Delights
Greg Simkins – Wanna Sammich
Joe Ledbetter – Dragon Tongue
Kii Arens – La-La Lunch
Niagara – Baby Doll
Shag – My First Cocktail
