My name is Ian (aka EBoy87) and my good friend Dana has kindly allowed me to do a review of the August Zbox from Zavvi.
This is my first ever monthly subscription for a product like this. I have thought about getting something like this in the past but unfortunately I’ve never really been able to afford one. However I was given a code for a special offer for the Zbox so I decided to take full advantage of it.
And I’m glad I did!
The box is well presented , right from the get go it appealed to me, with images of characters such as Deadpool, Masterchief and Captain America (to name a few) adorning the box, you know from the outset this is a box for lovers of Nerd Culture (of which I proudly am!)
So what was in the box!?
So as you can see the inside of the box well presented as well, look what was on the inside of the box lid!
The theme of the month was Invasion, hence the multitude of alien characters adorning the T-Shirt, we can see a GORT (The Day The Earth Stood Still) like character, flying saucers, a King Kong like character as well as some Cowboys (maybe a little Cowboys Vs Aliens reference?) and also some aliens that may well be a reference to War of the Worlds.
So to accompany the T-Shirt there was an Orc Plushie from World of Warcraft. Now whilst I myself am not a massive WoW fan it was still a neat little addition. My possibly most favorite items, the Weeping Angel Bobblehead firstly, I love Dr Who and the Weeping Angels are terrifically terrifying beings, also the Bobblehead was made by FUNKO, the people who make the awesome POP figures! And finally the little Alien silicone figures, Ripley and the Xenomorph (who according to the box is called Big Chap!).
So, was it worth it?
All the boxes have been ticked for me, the box was well presented and the items within, I believe, are of a decent quality.
I have a 3 month subscription and the next box’s theme is Marvel, which I’m really looking forward to.
Final score? 9/10 purely because I wasn’t too bothered about the WoW Plushie. I would heartily recommend the Zbox from Zavvi.
I have uploaded an unboxing video for the August Zbox to my YouTube channel you can see it right here!
