ZBox Review #1

I received a ZBox subscription from my brother for Christmas and it is great! The first box I received was this one, which is the Star Wars box – completely full of Star Wars related goodies!

So I opened up my box and this is what I saw so far..

I had a R2-D2 Desktop Vacuum which will come in handy with my desk as I’m forever munching away whilst trying to be productive!IMG_6508
I then received some Gadget Decals that we sell in work, I thought that these were all going to be huge and mainly for a MacBook (that I don’t stick anything to) but luckily there were about 3/4 sheets of all different size decals! So now my hard drives are all funky Star Wars chic (whatever that means..), at least I can tell the difference between mine and my mothers now as we ended up with the same hard drive and colour!IMG_6519
I then saw an original film cell from The Empire Strikes Back which is so, so cool! I absolutely love this!

Moving on, there was a bunch of stuff at the bottom including my film cell – I had ‘The Force – The Zbox Magazine’ which has all previews of new stuff, all the latest Star Wars gadgets coming out and had previews of the new comics coming out!
I also received a Force Awakens poster, which is so cool!

You can’t have a Star Wars related box around the new hype, without BB-8 now can you..
I love BB-8, ‘he’ is such a lad with sass! So I was chuffed when I saw this, this can go with my other BB-8 t-shirt that I have – it’s time that I start thinking of a BB-8 tattoo next!IMG_6512
So that’s it for my very brief details on the ZBox that I received! I do have another box, also but I will write about that one in a separate post to save confusion!

You can order ZBox from Zavvi from this link – BOOSH.
It is £19.49 per month, when you have a 3 month subscription so it’s well worth it. So go and have a little look at that if you’re interested as they are having some cool new boxes coming out like Deadpool, sometimes they have Animation, Back to The Future..

May The Force Be With You,
Zoe

LOOK WHAT JUST DOWNLOADED ONTO MY KINDLE!

Yes, that’s right. The book that I have been counting down the days for, and irritating Ernest Cline (and my followers) on twitter for!
I cannot wait to get stuck into this book, I am way too excited as when I read Ready Player One (£5.98 Kindle Edition, £6.29 Paperback) a few years ago, it instantly shot up to my ‘favourite books’ pile! Definitely in my Top 3 so far!

I have heard that this one is based on Aliens and slight video games, compared to the last book which was an actual video game itself (the storyline).

You can find Armada here: CLICKEDY CLICK! (£9.09 Hardcover, £7.99 Paperback, £6.02 Kindle Edition).

Let the reading and coffee drinking commence!
Have any of you preordered this?!

Big Hero 6 Review

BIG HERO 6?! – Oh my, this film blew me away!
I have a huge passion for animation and this film was incredible!

I have heard that it’s a good film, but usually I don’t believe the hype on some things. Yes, I was sceptical about this film at first, but as soon as it started I was in love!
I love the environment design, character design, the humour.. everything!
This film definitely appeals to children and also the older audience – I think that a lot of ‘nerdier’ people would love this too, and I even spotted a Stan Lee-esqe character who is Fred’s Dad in the film and is actually voiced by Stan Lee!

I don’t want to write a lot incase I spoil the film, so I will leave it here with my overall, general opinion. Go and watch this film! *These aren’t my images*
If any of you have seen this film, then please let me know what you thought about it, I would love to know!

My Star Wars Tattoo Update: Admiral Ackbar!

10561534_10152309608752362_6244765838306389815_nI have an addition to my back piece! I have a massive love for Star Wars, since I was a child, so that explains my SW tattoos! I decided to get Admiral Ackbar this time, as he is one of my favourite characters and I needed a bit of variety for my piece!
The next character that I am going to get on the left side, will be Yoda! I am going to make my back symmetrical as I have roses on the right of C-3PO, I will then fancy this up and make it more feminine with some more filigree and flowers!

I will post a better photo when everything has healed and the colours have settled!

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

IMG_6392

WOW. This book blew me away! I have never read a book like this – as I am a rather nerdy girl, I was in my element; especially the references!

This book is basically about one of the world’s biggest game developer that has created a virtual world that people tend to live in, instead of their everyday lives (as their world is corrupting and becoming miserable). The game developer dies, once this has happens, there is a video posted on his website from the creator himself saying that he has built a game within the virtual world. The objective of the game is to proceed through several levels (if you can find the starting point), they will need to solve riddles and puzzles. The winner will win the creator’s entire will, which is valued of billions of dollars!

So this book is mainly about the journey of this one guy, trying to solve the riddles and levels within the game. I won’t tell you anymore about the book, as it’ll spoil it!

I couldn’t get over how much I enjoyed this book – I didn’t want to put it down, I was that engulfed in it. This is definitely one of my favourite books now, AND it has been revealed that it is being turned into a film adaptation!

Go and read this book!
