Zbox - May 2017 - Knight - Transformers Shirt

Transformers Shirt – Value $15?

I must say – ZBox has some of the best exclusive shirt graphics around – this month is no different with this Transformers artwork!

Matching Print – Value $10?

As always, you’ll get a matching print to go with the shirt. It’s also larger than most prints you’ll get in a geek box – it’s 14×10 inches and arrives rolled up.

Zbox - May 2017 - Knight - McFarlane Game of Thrones Thrown Room box

Game of Thrones McFarlane Construction Set – Value $16 on Amazon

The big item this month is a McFarlane construction set featuring the Trone Room from Game of Thrones. We had just received this in the February Loot Crate DX, and even before then I had already owned it – it’s a fantastic set.

Dark Souls Comic: Tales of Ember – Value $2.99

Finally, you’ll get an issue from Dark Souls: Tales of Ember.

This comic takes a deeper dive into the Dark Souls universe.

From Amazon:

The Dark Souls short stories return, with eight new fresh takes on the staggeringly popular mythos! Based in the world of the global hit video game series, Dark Souls! Written and drawn by some of the comic industry’s brightest talents.

Verdict: ZBox has been hitting its value for quite a bit now, and this month hits it once more. If I didn’t already own the Throne Room set, I’d be jumping for joy when I opened this box – either way, it’s a great gift because it’s a great build. Still – overall, I did really like this month’s items!

What do you think of the May 2017 Knight ZBox?

  1. That Game of Thrones construction set is SO COOL!!!

    I get the impression Z Box is one of the better geek boxes out there. Given that it’s quite dear to buy the GoT set in the UK, and that there is currently a £3 off offer on the Z Box, if you’d subscribed recently the GoT set alone would’ve hit the box value. I’m going to have to see if anyone in the UK will trade with me for this because it’s awesome.
