Before Christmas an advert popped up on my Facebook feed for a Zavvi loot box. I took a look – the hook on the advert was the next loot box may contain a limited Sonic coin – only 5,000 made available worldwide.
Now being a bit of a Sonic fan, and also knowing a few of the guys in work get loot boxes and speak highly of them, I took the plunge and subscribed for the year. The box came a few days ago, and along with a comic, a T-shirt, a Pop figure and a calendar, there was the coin. First thing I thought was the advert was a gimmic – everyone got a coin. Taking a look on E-bay these coins have been going for £40 or so. So maybe I was lucky this time. Next month I will post an article, or even a video, of what is in the box.
