Whether you call it the Collector Corps or Loot Crates, they have become a trend within the last few years. Comic and entertainment companies like Marvel and DC began the trend which has now been picked up by Fanchest, which sends members team-specific exclusives and apparel every month. It has been announced that Zenescope Entertainment, creators of comic book titles such as Grimm Fairy Tales, Wonderland and Robyn Hood, has made available its own mail-order fan crate called a Zenbox.
A Zenbox can be delivered to your door with all kinds of neat merchandise, especially what seems to be a Blu-ray of Grimm Fairy Tales: Animated, which is a project Zenescope has been working on but has yet to be picked up by a network. Thought they are not currently available, zenboxes are $75 when you sign up at zenescope.com for a VIP membership. The VIP membership is $99 and also comes with exclusive art and VIP access to events. The Spring Edition looks like a good one so I can imagine all of the great stuff available in the other additions down the line. I like the “Golden Ticket” perk because it reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I am personally looking forward to the Holiday and Grimm Fairy Tales #1 Editions.
The Zenbox is another great thing Zenescope Entertainment is doing to keep their fans entertained and their products accessible. When the next Zenbox is available, I will certainly purchase one. There is nothing better than receiving new and exclusive products before they are made available to the general public. With San Diego Comic Con not too far away, be on the look out for the SDCC Edition this summer. While you’re waiting, be sure to check out zenescope.com and your local comic shop for other great products from the world of Robyn Hood, Grimm Fairy Tales and more.
