Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – September 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. Nerd Block recently introduced Arcade Block, (I’ll have the review up of the first box hopefully soon!), so this box is now known as Nerd Block Classic. Each month will have a different theme. (October’s box is curated by Kevin Smith and the theme is Marvel vs. DC!)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Nerd Block
The Cost: $19.99 plus shipping (Shipping is $8.75 to Canada, $9.50 to US, $12.50 Worldwide)
COUPON: Use coupon code SUPERHERO to save 10% off your first month!
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.
Sounds of the Galaxy T-Shirt – Value $18?
This is the custom t-shirt made for subscribers this month. My husband loved Guardians of the Galaxy, so this was a hit!
Scribblenauts Unmasked – Value $10
Mega Bloks Marvel Series 3 – Value $7
Blind box items are pretty common in Nerd Blocks – great if you want to swap and try to get the whole set! (I think we’ll be swapping these.
My husband loves TMNT, but I don’t think he wants to put this set together. It will make for a great gift or swap item though!
Giant Microbes STD Plush – Value $12
Nerd Block Stress Relief Brain Toy – Value $2?
Well, I was a little surprised that they sent plush STD toys in this box because I’m pretty sure these boxes are enjoyed by both adults and kids? Oh well – another dog toy!
Verdict: This box has a great value – about $70 – but besides the t-shirt, it wasn’t a huge hit with us. That’s usually the case with both Nerd Block and Loot Crate – depending on what brands/characters they feature really depends on how much you like the box. It’s definitely worth the gamble for us though – and we just swap the rest for FUNKO items!
