ZBox Review April 2019
Batarang Batman T-Shirt
This black, short sleeved shirt has a grey and gold illustration of a logo featuring the Batarang, one of the most useful and clever of Batman's tools!
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!
