May 2018 ‘Detectives’ ZBox Review

The May box included items from Hot Fuzz, Jessica Jones, and Batman.

It arrives with an information book that details each item and provides a few quick reads.

Batman Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s exclusive shirt features one of my all-time favorite members of Batman’s rogue gallery – Two-Face! It’s got that old-school comic cover look, too.

Jessica Jones Q-Fig – Value $15 based on their other Q Figs

The big-ticket item of the month is a vinyl figure from Quantum Mechanix – it’s Jessica Jones.

We received this in the April 2017 Loot Crate box – I loved the figure then, and I still do now. Q-Figs are some of the best vinyl caricature figures around.

Hot Fuzz Coin – Value $10-15?

Challenge coins seem to be all the rage this year, and ZBox is definitely front-and-center with the craze.

You’ll get the silver or gold variant of the coin – with the gold being a much more limited run – they’re limited to only 1,000 minted.

The Shadow/Batman #1 – Value $3.99

The final item is a comic – issue #1 of The Shadow/Batman with a variant cover. Batman vs The Shadow is definitely a cool matchup!

Verdict: ZBox is almost always coming in over-cost – but, lately, if you’re not into collecting coins then you might have a chunk of value gone from these boxes. It seems like we can expect a coin in pretty much every box at the moment – so that’s something to consider when signing up.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. You’ll get a peek at the currently available theme on the landing page.
