Zanini Box (August 2019) Unboxing!
Five (Mostly) Badass Characters in August’s Zanini Box!
August’s Zanini Box is the third shipment in the subscription’s excellent run thus far, and it’s also the first one I wasn’t there for! Damn me! But at least I get to watch my giddy hubby fawn over another five amazing pins!

So Who’s On the Roster This Month?
August’s package came with five pretty iconic characters, three of them classics, two of them a bit newer to the scene. All five are pretty badass in their own ways too (at least, I think so)!
Everyone’s Favorite Web-Slinger
Find me a geek who doesn’t at least have a standard appreciation for Spider-Man and I will show you a bloody liar. Everyone loves Spider-Man, and don’t you dare argue with me!
The Zanini Spider-Man pin features a close-up of the web-slinger’s head, over top of a set of blue spider’s legs from his suit design. It’s simple, straight-forward, and perfectly executed.
Cobra Commander is On the Attack!
The G.I. Joe line of pins continues with one of the biggest adversaries of our childhoods: Cobra Commander! This pin is designed in the same vein as the previous one, looking almost part-cartoon, part-toy, all-awesome. I absolutely love the pose he’s been put in, and the colors are spot on. Definitely an awesome addition to the pin-line!
Mr Witcher Himself
I personally haven’t played The Witcher III myself, but Jason has, and because of that I know that: a) it’s a pretty wicked game, and b) Geralt is one of the coolest game characters out there. It’s totally understandable, then, that Zanini would do a pin of him! It’s a close-up of his head and chest over a shield shape, with the three claw-marks at the bottom indicating the third entry in the franchise. And of course they didn’t forget his awesome face-scar!
If you’ve not seen any of the John Wick movies…what the hell are you doing with your life? Wick is such a cool character, sympathetic but also wickedly badass and a little frightening in his ability to murder multitudes. I’m extremely pleased that Zanini made a pin of him because he’s probably my favorite thing Keanu Reeves has ever done (aside from that whole “YOU’RE breathtaking!” thing). His glaring visage is plastered over top a red-and-black triangle, just simple enough while being instantly recognizable.
Are You Telling Me That You Built a Time Machine…Out of a DeLorean?!”
Last but not least, we have the infamous Mr Marty McFly, who, honestly…at this point if you’re going to try to tell me that you don’t know Marty or don’t like Back to the Future, I’m just going to have to ask you to leave.
The Marty pin has him lifting up his glasses with one hand and checking his watch with the other, a great pose in my opinion. And with the iconic red vest added into the mix there’s no way you’d mistake this incredibly important pop culture icon!
But Which is Your Favorite?
Those were the five Zanini pins for August, and personally I loved them all! But which one is your favorite? Are you all about the nostalgia or the newer designs? Video games or movies?
