Resident Evil 2 Safe House Experience

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months (or of course, you simply have zero interest in video games) then you probably know or heard all about the much deserved hype surrounding the anticipated release of Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 REmake.  All the diehard RE fans, including myself, have been excited…

MCM London Comic Con May 2019

MCM London Comic Con in the glorious spring is always an event we look forward to.  Our only concern was that we didn’t have all of our stock to do it with but sulking about it wasn’t going to make it arrive so we just got on with it and packed what we could.  We…

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It !!!

Just a heads up to let you all know (in case it wasn’t obvious or you just hadn’t noticed) but we have reverted back to our original logo. Truth is, I was trying so hard to fit in when we tried broadening our horizons with the tattoo conventions and retro shows but to be honest,…

Portsmouth Comic Con 2019

Portsmouth Comic Con, I’d heard nothing but good things regarding this convention.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get in the previous year because I’d left it too late but I made sure I got a place for this year’s event.  It was being held at the Guildhall which is a lovely historic building in the…

Walker Stalker London 2019

Just like Christmas, Walker Stalker only happens once a year and just like Christmas, we eagerly await it’s arrival.  Walker Stalker has always been a family affair for us, it’s the only one I do with both of my boys.  Now we might not be the biggest Walking Dead fans anymore, although the last season…

Christmas Markets 2018

Here at PlayBox Designs, we like to constantly come up with new and bright ideas.  However, not all of those ideas actually turn out to be that bright.  One of those ideas was to have a go at the Christmas Market scene.  Seems legit right?  I mean, MCM Birmingham is always our last gig of…

MCM Birmingham Comic Con November 2018

It feels like a million years since we were at MCM Birmingham Comic Con last November.  I don’t know if that’s because I’ve been so lazy with the blog or if time has really flown by. Now, if you’ve been reading our previous blog posts, you’ll have a pretty good idea how I feel about…

Worthing Wormhole 2018

This is a short, but sweet account of Worthing Wormhole from last November but there is a very good reason why I still wanted to include this one. Worthing Wormhole is a film and comic con convention right on my doorstep so it’s always a no-brainer to do these ones, cheap tables, no sky-high hotel…

MCM London Comic Con Oct 2018

It’s been a while! I don’t really have any valid excuses. I’m sorry to say I did get a bit lazy about the blog and to be fair I’m never going to have a more exciting blog post than the last one anyway (about the RE2 Safe House Experience). However, I’m going to pull my…

Meanwhile… Worthing Comic Con 2018

Okay so this is probably going to be the shortest convention blog post ever.  Unfortunately, some conventions just don’t turn out the way you want them to.  Noone’s fault, it’s just the way it is sometimes. Now, I always enjoy the local shows.  They’re close to home so I don’t have any hotel expenses, minimal…
