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,

You need Star Wars Battlefront!

Are you a huge Star Wars fan? Or even just a general lover? Star Wars Battlefront is definitely the best video game for the season this year, hands down!
Star Wars Battlefront is the latest craze from EA which is an action game that is either first person or third. You can play as classic characters such as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia, Boba Fett, Palpatine or even the man, Darth Vader himself!
It is seen as a reboot from previous Battlefront games, but the graphics and the recreation of scenes from the older games is just mindblowingly beautiful!

I jumped onto my Xbox One and headed to the store to download the Battlefront BETA straight after work in November and I was not disappointed from what I saw. This took my breath away instantly – from the fact that I could play as Emperor Palpatine to defeat the rebels in a VS match to riding a speeder bike through Endor or even driving AT-ATs and X-Wings.

I would personally say that this game is 90% Online Play to get the most out of the gaming experience, but they do have a few missions and lessons that you can play by yourself where you have to defeat Boba Fett and protect your pods.

Like I said at the beginning, if you love the original trilogy, you will probably fall in love with this game. Travel to Hoth, Endor, Tattooine and fulfil your Star Wars dreams in an instant! The detail that has been put into this game is incredible – although people sometimes describe this simply as a Call Of Duty-esqe, shooter game with a Star Wars front it is still so much more than that for any Star Wars fan.

Why wouldn’t you want to run up to people and fry them to pieces with a lightsaber or force choke them? Also, there is a great achievement that you receive, if you get hit by an Ewok which made me laugh more than anticipated..

Have any of you play this game or are getting it for christmas? I think that this is an immaculate game which I will not tire of easily! It is perfectly timed with the fully blown Star Wars hype at the moment with the upcoming movie and I would recommend this for all ages, as there is no blood whatsoever in this – all friendly ‘shoot and disappear’ action.

May The Force Be With You,

Harry Potter and the Illustrated, Beautiful, Hardcover of Loving Goodness?!

*These images are from Amazon*
I have recently stumbled across this gorgeous book, whilst I saw that Bloomsbury were releasing a purple hardcover, with golden pages of Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone full of illustrations which is beautiful – BUT it’s $270.
So I started to read the comments for people’s reactions and they all thought that is was very expensive, nice but too expensive. Somebody then posted a link to an alternative which looks pretty similar on Amazon. HERE IS THE LINK TO IT.

It’s not going to be the same, of course. But it is still illustrated, has a beautiful hardcover and would look incredible on a bookshelf AND it is only £19.99! What a bargain! I just know that I need this book in my life, right now!
