August ZBOX unboxing time! — This month’s theme is “Invasion”.
ZBOX is a UK-based subscription box that sends you a mystery collection of geeky goodies every month. Each box will feature a new theme — from zombies and the undead to retro games and pop culture — and contain over £35 (roughly $48) worth of exclusive and licensed merchandise. The interior of each month’s box will be designed specifically around the theme and include a little “Easter-egg” for you to seek out.
Subscriptions are $31.58/month (£19.99) and they ship worldwide.
Let’s see what’s in the August 2016 ZBOX!
The ZBOX box.
A peek inside!
A ZBOX mini mag revealed August’s theme — “Invasion” — and included an interview with artist Boneface, a collection of the worst special effects in movie history, a soundtrack to an invasion playlist, and more. It also listed all of the items inside the box, along with brief descriptions and photos of each one.
Invasion T-Shirt – A super detailed cowboys vs. aliens (I think?) design created exclusively for ZBOX by artist Boneface. It kinda reminds me of the type of artwork on some of the old Atari game cartridges. Very retro. 😉
Doctor Who Weeping Angel Wacky Wobbler Bobble-Head – Try saying that five times fast. This wacky wobbler depicts the popular villain from the Doctor Who series on BBC. He measures roughly 7 inches tall and is quite terrifying. I didn’t realize it at first, but it’s actually made by Funko. Neat.
Titans Alien Exclusive Twin Pack Vinyl Figures – A set of two 3-inch vinyl figures depicting the Alien splattered with its own deadly blood and Ripley in the midst of changing into a spacesuit. The latter was kind of an odd design choice, but at least they didn’t have her completely in her underwear… So there’s that.
World of Warcraft Bleacher Creature – I don’t know a thing about World of Warcraft, but I do know that this dude is rocking one seriously gnarly rat tail. The little hang tag tells me that this is “Durotan”. Durotan is a wee bit creepy and I’m not too sure I want him making himself at home here…
As expected, another collection of geeky goodies from ZBOX! My favorite item this month was probably the Alien figure set (though the half-dressed thing was a little odd). The exclusive t-shirt design was pretty neat too. Psst… Spoiler alert: The theme for September’s box is “Marvel Universe”!
