IMG_20150528_122439From UK-retailer Zavvi is the ZBOX. If you’re not familiar with Zavvi, it was originally the Virgin Megastores which then became Zavvi stores. The stores ended up closing but they rebranded and relauched as a strictly online store selling video games, dvds, clothes and collectibles.

Their subscription box ‘ZBOX’ is similar to other geeky-type boxes but each month has a very specific theme. This month’s theme is Animation.

ZBOX arrived in a large black bag and inside of the black bag was their large black box. Phew, say that ten times fast. The box features their logo on the front.

I have to stop right here and point out how awesome the box art is, INSIDE of the box.

I’ve never heard of ‘Imagine Bullyland’ but this is pretty much a small blind-bag envelope with a Disney toy. This one happened to be the truck from Cars.

IMG_20150528_123212ZBOX Magazine

Instead of a simple item card ZBOX includes their own magazine that details all of the items and features some cool articles. I enjoyed the piece where the staff picks their favorite cartoon characters.

IMG_20150528_123236IMG_20150528_123303

IMG_20150528_122722With the comic and the Funko POP! pretty much paying for the box, Zavvi’s ZBOX is a pretty solid value considering everything else you get. I really dig the lenticular card and the retro Transformers stress ball.

If you’re looking for another fun geeky subscription box option, consider importing the ZBOX.
