Here we are, once again, with my favorite (and only) geeky subscription box from the UK… the ZBox from Zavvi. The theme for March was “Retro”… as in retro video games that is. Last month’s box was amazing so hopefully they can pull it off again! Heres the video…
Ok so you didn’t watch the video I know… but just play along with me as I say “so what did you think?” and then naturally I continue with “lets take a closer look at those items…”
Pixel Bricks Pac-Man
Pixel Bricks are fun to get, great to display, and a HUGE pain in the ass to assemble! It’s not just the tiny sized bricks that are an issue… its the difficult to follow instructions that kill it. Once I get mine together they STAY together! The finished product looks awesome though so I guess it’s worth it in the end.
Believe it or not these sell for $20
Numskull Console Notebook
This looks so much like the actual Game Gear it amazes me. Its just a notebook but at least they made it look cool. I believe you could have received a few other game systems in the box other than the Game Gear.
This is a UK item that sells for about $7.50 US with the conversion rate.
Sonic the Hedgehog Socks
These are a bit too wild for my tastes but then again… all crazy print socks are not to my liking. They are decent quality socks but I’ll wind up giving them away because I’ll never wear them.
These are also a UK item but sell for roughly $10 US
Joystick Junkies T-Shirt
I love this design! It definitely fits the Retro theme like something straight out of the 80s. I will be wearing it often!
I value all shirts at $10
Tango Fiesta Full Steam Game
This is a retro-style top down shooter on Steam. It looks pretty fun from the demo video but I haven’t had a chance to play it yet. I love that they sent a full version game and I wish more boxes would offer this instead of useless game add-ons or free trials.
This sells for $13 on Steam
I had never heard of Flumps before but holy crap that tasted good! It’s like a fruity marshmallow twisty thing which I literally just ate right now before writing this. The Lemmings door hanger is kind of a “blah” item although its been printed on some pretty nice card stock.
This has a rough value of $5 maybe
…and there you have the ZBox “Retro” box for March 2015. An estimated $65 value for $33 shipped overseas to the US. Overall I think this box was great… not quite the caliber of last month’s box but still very nice! The theme for April is “Animation” and it may possibly be sold out by now as it takes a long time for this box to get shipped here.
