ZBox’s are supplied from Zavvi and can be bought from there website and at events around the county like MCM Comic Con, these focus around pop culture and can be themed like anime, films, gaming etc or they can be completely random.
This box is the last in our Comic-Con editions in which we picked these up at MCM comic con, they are special versions but in reality a little less stuff but at a cheaper price, which in reality you could get a bargain or something that isn’t completely your thing, but if your a family or friends and fans of many pop culture references, then odds are there will be something for each of you. We did buy and open a small one for family use as well which ill share at the end as an additional.
Mystery Mini’s, a small little mystery box with the chance to get a 1/12 chance of a figure, including may of the main characters in the film, this is a good little pocket money gift for kiddies.
AMC Walking Dead
A lanyard with plastic sleeve holder as well as badge style attachment, this reads Walker Hunter and has a Crossbox and arrows, probably based on the character Daryl, its good colours of black and red with white, and the lanyard strap is black with the simple names of the show, if you attend a lot of conference like events then this is pretty good to have, plus there are people that collect themed lanyards.
An Exclusive Cylon Raider 4.5″ Scar Titan, (apparently a Loot Crate exclusive “caugh”) this is, unfortunately, the third one I’ve received, 1 in each of these boxes, don’t get me wrongs its a great Vinyl figure and replication of the ship, and if you were a fan of Battlestar Galactica then these ships are pretty good.
Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy
The biggest and heaviest item in the box! Produced by DK Books and Marvel, its a complete guide to their characters, history, villans, ships, stories, comics and generally anything to do with the history and stories of the Guardians of the galaxies (not the MCU), many will not realise how long they have been around and who has actually been in the guardians of the galaxy and may surprise many as they are different to the films, which in reality is very different to there history, being the main force in space for many years, many other characters like Silver Surfer, Thing, Ironman, Captain Marvel, has crossed over to it. The box is well done and very good for those more hardcore fans of the franchise.
A little extra
In our other smaller box we got another Battlestar Galactica Ship as mentioned earlier, a little toy story 4 egg, a Zuru mini marvel spiderman figure, and a Foomi, in which you can paint or colour a little generic figure, personally not a great range.
In the main box, the selection is ok, and actually, between the two it was good to see some stuff for younger kids as they are often missed, so seeing some smaller pocket money items like Disney was great! The walking dead Lanyard is fine, as is the Battlestar Galactica Ships, we just seem to be unlucky with the amount we get. The main item, in my opinion, was the Book, but I do realise if you were a fan of Guardians of the Galaxy then this is perhaps not great for you, but Tigger and I think it’s great and very interesting, personally I wouldn’t have paid top dollar for this, and I’m glad it picked it up cheap at Comic-con because it was well worth the £9.99 I paid, I’m keen to try there bigger subscription boxes I the future.
