— The Spy on quality toys
What's in the Sandvich Box? is an Action item for all classes. It appears in the backpack as a purple gift box with lime polka dots tied with a fuchsia ribbon. A Description Tag is attached, printed with a question mark.
The box was given to those who purchased the 1:1 Sandvich toy made by ThreeA Toys either at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, or during the limited Valve Store re-release on December 7th, 2012, October 17th, 2013, and April 19th, 2014, and redeemed the included in-game code.

The package for these toys is marked as "Valve Store Edition", and the included card with serial code is plastic instead of paper; Aside from this, nothing else is different. This limited re-release sold out in hours.
