ZBox Subscription Box Review – July 2016
ZBox is a geeky subscription box that ships from the UK. Each month has it’s own theme to which they send over $48 worth of exclusive merchandise.
ZBox sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: ZBox
The Cost: $22.99
The Products: The ZBOX is a monthly geek box themed around your favorite geeky interests, from zombies and the undead to retro games and pop culture. Each month you will be sent a box containing over £35 ($48) worth of exclusive, licensed merchandise.
Ships To: Worldwide
This month’s theme was Legends! There was no doubt we’d see the subscription box favorite game in this box – Zelda.
Each month comes with a mini magazine with a lot of detail on each item in the box, along with interviews and short stories.
Zelda Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s shirt features Link from Zelda. They now match the shirt design with the box and magazine cover design. I’ve liked the artwork they’ve been doing, so I have no problem with it, they’ve been doing a great job.
Zelda Mug – Value $18 on Amazon
The second and last Zelda item is this shield mug. I’ve never been a big Zelda fan, but this mug is great! I love that they designed the mug around the shield, and it’s pretty large as well. Of course, the cooler mugs like this aren’t dishwasher or microwave safe.
Mario Kart Racer – Value $15 on Amazon
The next item is from the all-time video game legend – it’s a-me, Mario! This is a pull-back racecar and is made to look like Mario’s ride from the Mario Kart Wii game.
I took it out for a spin. Pardon the shaky camera – naturally, I’d try to save the $15 toy by bumping into the expensive camera!
Arrow Vengence Book – Value $7 on Amazon
The last two items were from DC Comics. First is this Arrow book. It’s based off of the second season of the CW show – which includes one of my favorite DC characters, Deathstroke! I recommend that season of the show or the book!
Flash DC Figure – Value $24 on Amazon
This little lead figure is similar to the Doomsday figure in the May My Geek Box. I think they are a bit more rare, hence the higher price. The paint job is much better on this little Flash figure than it was on the Doomsday figure, which was my main complaint – so I’m happy! You could have received The Flash or Robin.
Verdict: ZBox has been delivering good boxes for me over the past 3 deliveries. This is probably the least favorite of the past 3 boxes, but I assumed that going into it, knowing that I wasn’t really a Zelda fan. Even though I’m not a fan, I do like the design of the shirt and the mug – add the little Mario Kart and the figurine, my favorite item, and it was a good month for me.
