REVIEW: ZBOX Monthly Mystery Box

So I thought I would give the ZBox from Zavvi.com a go since they are offering 2 free boxes with your first box, not bad for £19.99. Here are the boxes, their content and my thoughts.

image

The first box is called the ZBox2 which is essentially a sampling of previous boxes and is normally priced at £9.99

image

First look inside and it doesn’t look too bad!

image

We get a zombie heat changing mug, ill use it for work.

image

A pixal figure of tales from sonic, over 200 mini Lego pieces to make this little fella, I doubt I’ll bother!

image

Some Iron Man decal sticker might stick em on the fridge!

image

A Ghostbusters postcard… Yeah a postcard.

image

A selection of DC comics badges, I don’t mind these, I’ll find a place for them.

image

A lego city play set, my nephew will like this.

image

And an Xmen Graphic novel, I’ll give it a read, I’m not a big X-Men fan

Overall not bad for a freebie but I’m not sure I would have been happy paying £9.99 for it.

The the next free box is a mystery box from a previous month which is usually priced at £19.99 but again this box was totally free!

image

I got the good cop/bad cop box

image

As soon as you open it you see the standard tee shirt

image

This is a generic police badge black tee, I don’t like tees in mystery boxes, I’d rather a random comic personally

image

Next we find a mini mega phone keyring, a fun little novelty but not for me

image

A lego city play set (again) my other nephew can have this one

image

A soft Robocop keyring, too big for my keys but I like it enough to keep it

image

A chalky whistle sweet, annoying sweet from my childhood that my mum would hate me having. I love it

image

My favourte item in the box is this metel cast Judge Dredd badge, this is going on display right away

image

A Judge Dredd one shot comic, I’ll keep it with my Badge

image

And the monthly theme magazine

Overall this box was a bit of a let down with the exception of the Dredd badge  this wouldn’t have been a box I would choose!

The final box is this months box with the theme mutate, because of the release of X-Men: Apocalypse and TMNT.

image

This box is bigger than the previous two and when you open it you see why.

image

We’re greeted by the smiley face of Raphael.

image

Raphael is a soft plush by Funko, I’m not actually a big fan of the big head freaks known as Funko but the plush ones are at least cuddly.

image

The tee shirt looks to be Apocalypse from X-Men, I don’t wear random tees like this but my brother will love it.

image

Next we see a Disney Infinity Hulk figure, sadly, I don’t have this game but it’s a nice looking figure none the less.  I expect to see a lot more of these in boxes now that Disney has discontinued the line.

image

Finally we get an X-Men hard back graphic novel, again not big on the X-Men but I’ll give it a read and see.

image

And of course the theme magazine.

This is the box that I paid for, this was the theme I knew I was getting and aside from the Funko plush this box had nothing in it for me sadly, had I paid £19.99 for just this box I would be so unhappy but with the promotional offer and receiving all three boxes I’m not disappointed that I’m £20 down.

I would have to say if you are thinking of getting the Zbox only do so with the offer as three boxes for £19.99 gets you a fair bit of swag even if it’s not all to your liking, with the offer its a 5 star deal!

Do you agree with my review?
