The standout item, for my kids at least, was the Wonder Woman DC Bombshells figure. However collectors were upset as a) it wasn’t exclusive as the box stated every item was and b) it wasn’t worth £25 as promised and Zavvi themselves were selling it for £9.99.

Most disappointing @The_ZBOX ever. How can the figure be "rrp £25" when the line has been sold for £9.99 on your website since day one?! 😤

@The_ZBOX this ladies and gentlemen is a lie, this is a mininfigure worth £10ish not £25 as advertised, i subscribed due to your lie

@The_ZBOX How is the "exclusive DC Bombshells figure worth £25!" in the box as its listed on your own site for £9.99 with a rrp £10.99 ?

So @The_ZBOX advertise the Heroines box as having an exclusive Bombshells figure worth £25 and then send one worth £10 ???????

Cue an apologetic letter…
We just wanted to drop you an email to apologise for a mistake regarding our February box, Superheroines. We originally believed that the box would contain a DC Bombshells statue worth £25. As you know, this was not the case and we would like to sincerely apologise for this mistake on our part.
We’d like to give you a £5 voucher on us and assure you that we won’t be making that mistake again! Alternatively, you can view our FAQs here.
Apologies for any confusion this has caused. Thanks for being a ZBOXer and we hope you’re looking forward to Anarchy. We’d like to give you a sneak peek of what’s coming up – the Deathstroke item is an exclusive colour variant XXRAY figure and we hope you enjoy it.
Will it be enough? I don’t know. But the unlicensed Wonder Woman shirt is still pretty sweet…
