Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – August 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.
Nerd Block ships from Canada, and has reasonable shipping rates to the US and worldwide.
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!
Each box comes with a card detailing each of the items included.
Pokemon Shirt – Value $18
This shirt isn’t a hit for my husband – we may swap it or gift it.
Funko Batman PX Previews Exclusive – Value $11
This month subscribers either got Batman or Harley Quinn. My husband was thrilled with this one, and I think he’s already swapped to get Harley Quinn too!
New Adventures Doctor Who Comics – Value $3.99 each
These comics are NerdBlock exclusives. We’re not Doctor Who fans, but my cousin is, so these are going to him!
Bravest Warriors Keychain – Value $7
MiniKins Mini Figures – Value $2
Verdict: This box has a value of about $46. We paid $30 for the box, so the retail value is good, but for us this month was a miss because of the characters/tv shows selected. The only item my husband loves is the Batman. We should be able to swap for some items we do like so it’s not a wash. (And we always go into these geek subscriptions knowing that it could be hit or miss depending on which items they include).
What did you think of Nerd Block this month?
