    Silk Spectre Vinyl Figure – Retail Value $10.00

    I think this is meant to look like a giant LEGO person? Maybe? I am not a huge Watchman fan, but I find this is exceptionally timely, especially with the new HBO series coming out. This figure is of the Silk Spectre and stands about 4 inches tall and she is slightly poseable.

      Ceramic Game of Thrones Mug/Tankard

      Another exceptionally relevant item! The series has ended (don’t even get me started) and this large mug/tankard features the most highly coveted piece of furniture in all of Westeros. It is quite large, holding 13 oz.

        Ceramic Seven Kingdoms Game of Thrones Mug/Tankard – Retail Value $29.95

        Hope you are (still) a Game of Thrones fan because we received a second mug! This one is the same as the one above in terms of shape and size but features a highly detailed map of Westeros.

          LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Guardians of the Galaxy ‘The Milano’ – Retail Value $9.99 (found here for $8.69)

          Lastly, we opened a little LEGO kit based on the Milano ship from Guardians of the Galaxy. I haven’t played with LEGOs since childhood, but I figured that since this kit was a smaller one, I could handle it! It probably took me longer than most kids out there, but I finished it! I was really impressed with the detail of the build and the multiple articulated features.

            Proof that I can LEGO.

            Verdict: ZBox always feels really random to me, but maybe that is part of its charm. This was an April box, but since this is a UK subscription, it takes a little longer to get to us. For that reason, I imagine those two GoT mugs probably felt more exciting, since they likely arrived to most people before the series finale and before all of those FEELINGS. I HAVE SO MANY. *cough* the rest of the box was quite an assortment. I don’t think I am the right collector for anything related to Watchmen. I love Batman but the shirt was way too big. I did enjoy building the lego ship!

            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 homepage.

            Value Breakdown: This box costs $22.99, so each of the 5 items has an average cost of $4.60.

            I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.
