It’s very unusual for a box company to break their normal routine, but that’s exactly what ZBOX did with their “The Force” box. It was originally announced as the November theme… then November came and went and no box was shipped. I went to their site to check things out when I saw that their December them… was “The Force”. So I shot them an email just to see what’s up and they explained that they were having such a good response to the theme that they extended the sales window right up until The Force Awakens came out. I was satisfied with that and awaited my shipment… so you wanna see what was inside? Of course you do!
…so did you think it was worth a 2 month wait? Let’s take a closer look…
Kylo Ren Print
This is a nice quality print that even appears to be licensed (something not always common in geek boxes). I like the layout and the detail is nice and best of all it is printed on a thick cardstock so it arrived in pristine condition. Now where to hang it….
ZBOX Exclusive Variant Cover Vader Down Comic
I already have the standard cover for this comic but I welcome the variants… especially on a Star Wars comic! I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but I have it at the top of the pile on my “to read” stack.
Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Film Cell
I received one of these in Nerd Block if I’m not mistaken over a year ago. It has a completely different scene on the piece of film though so they are not identical. These always confuse me as to why they are valued… it’s a piece of the movie sure… but I’m betting there are thousands in existence. Either way, it’s cool I guess.
Star Wars Decals
Normally I would say that I hate stickers but these are actually pretty awesome! First of all they are removable so I’m not stuck with it forever… and second… hello it’s Star Wars! I’m going to see if I can fit one on my phone case, and maybe some on my desktop PC.
Licensed BB-8 Shirt
I love the shirt… it would be SO much better though in literally ANY other color. White just looks a bit trashy if you ask me. Oh don’t worry… I’m still totally wearing it!
Star Wars R2-D2 Desktop Vacuum
This is the weirdest useful toy thing I have ever seen. It’s a USB powered vacuum in the shape of R2-D2. I haven’t tried it out but whether it works good or not I am totally keeping it on display. I find it funny that it’s the Force Awakens R2 vacuum though… maybe that’s because he needs to clean up all the dust he had been collecting over the years lying dormant.
…and that was the ZBOX “The Force” theme for November & December 2015. Personally I think it was worth the wait… I mean, everything in the box was licensed which adds lots of value compared to mash-up shirts and interpretation prints.
