Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – May 2014
Nerd Block is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers. This box typically includes at least a figurine or two, and always a new exclusive shirt. Compared to Loot Crate, I’ve found that Nerd Block seems to have more figurines each month, where Loot Crate seems to have more exclusive items.
The Subscription Box: Nerd Block
The Cost: $19.99 plus shipping (Shipping is $8.75 to Canada, $9.50 to US, $12.50 Worldwide)
The Products: Every Nerd Block comes with a custom t-shirt (in your size) and 5-6 epic items for you to tear into!
Ships to: US, Canada, and Worldwide!
I was so excited to see an info card in this month’s box! (A subscription box somehow feels incomplete to me without, and Nerd Block has never done cards before).
Fett is Coming T-Shirt – Value $18?
Every month Nerd Block creates an exclusive shirt for the box. (FYI – I think these shirts run a little large). Also, Star Wars + GoT = Nerd Block definitely knows what they are doing!
Star Wars Plush – Value $7
Super Mario Bros. Danglers – Value $2
Have you noticed the Star Wars theme yet? We’re not as big of fans as some of friends, so I think we’ll be sharing some of these items!
Stick It Pad – Value $3?
This is one of those car dashboard sticky pads that you can keep your phone on. It’s also the first “Nerd Certified Product of the Month.” I wonder if we’ll see more in future boxes?
My husband was excited to see this in the box. (We still have to see the new Spider-Man movie! I”ve been dragging my feet since it hasn’t gotten the best reviews).
Star Wars Boxos Papercraft Playset – Value $11
Verdict: We paid $30 for this box and received close to $50 worth of items. I think if we were big Star Wars fans this would have probably been the best box ever, but I always try to caution in these reviews that a good Nerd Block or Loot Crate usually depends on if they include the items you are a fan of. I think the value of this box is good, and we’ll have some items to gift/swap.
What do you think of the May Nerd Block box?
