Oddly enough I got my ZBOX really early this month compared to normal. Since it’s shipped overseas I don’t normally see it until well into the following month. January’s theme was “Blockbuster” and they didn’t release many spoilers for the box other than the cover art. So there’s only one way to find out what this month brings… and that’s to unbox it!
…so what did you think? Well don’t make up your mind yet because you haven’t seen the close up pictures yet…
Batman Arkham Knight Genesis w/Exclusive Cover + Extras
SO we got an exclusive variant cover for the Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #1 which is pretty cool. I always like getting the variants over regular comics any day. Also included was a Marvel 2016 Calendar and Star Wars free preview comic.
Doctor Who Cardboard Figure
If you know me then you know I don’t watch Doctor Who but that I can appreciate a good item once in a while. This is essentially just a cardboard cutout standup figure but there may be a little more to it than that… I just haven’t opened it to find out. From what I’m told, I need to watch the episodes where this character is featured… maybe one day I will get around to it.
Fallout Nuka Cola Cap Keychain
I am a huge Fallout fan and usually go nuts over every little item. This one falls a bit short for me because it’s just too big… a more realistic sized Nuka Cola cap would have looked so much better than this big flattened medallion. Oh don’t get me wrong I’m still keeping it on display with my other Fallout merchandise but …ya know… I’m just being picky.
Mad Max Fury Road Chatty Feet Socks
I usually don’t like crazy socks but you have to admit these are pretty awesome! I mean seriously …socks with Mad Max’s “face muzzle” on it is absolutely genius!
Mini Spider-Man DIY Munny
I love the DIY Munnys but I know there are plenty of non-artistic types out there so the Sticker Art Munnys are perfect for everyone. Decorate it with stickers or draw your own… whatever makes you feel good. Since I already made a Spider-Man Munny maybe this one will become a Deadpool or something.
The Martian Paperback Book
I love getting books in geeky subscription boxes. There’s something about a book that adds value to a box… some may disagree but that’s my opinion on it. Even though I totally don’t have any time to read them I will eventually some day. I used to read all the time but now I video and write so much that it takes up all my free time. I haven’t seen the Martian movie yet but I heard it’s great …I’m sure I’ll see it long before I ever read this but I WILL read this someday!
…and that was the ZBOX “Blockbuster” box for January 2016. I thought this was a pretty decent box although the theme “Blockbuster” is definitely up for interpretation here. The ZBOX is a UK based subscription box but has extremely cheap shipping to the US making it about $33/month shipped.
