Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – October 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. This month’s box is curated by Kevin Smith and the theme is Marvel vs. DC.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (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.
Jay and Silent Bob Tee – Value $18
This is pretty much the perfect shirt from a Kevin Smith DC themed box!
Funko POP Vinyl DeadPool – Value $11
Subscribers will either get this figure in grey or red. My husband is all about building out his POP Vinyl collection, so he was very happy with this inclusion in the box.
Arkham Asylum Patient Notes – Value $5?
Both of these items are awesome and make me wish Kevin Smith curated all Nerd Block Classic boxes!
The Arkham Asylum patient notes book is actually various post it notes.
And these replica vintage Captain America trading cards are such a cool collector’s item, and from what I can tell are already sold out online. There are two packs available (regular and blood stained), and subscribers will get one version. UPDATE – this pack actually includes both sets of cards!
POW! Pins – Value $3?
Jay and Silent Bob Stickers – Value $3?
Zelda Dangler – Value $4
Danglers seem to be relatively prevalent in NerdBlock boxes (and Junior boxes) and they are one of those items that we just don’t use, so this goes to the swap pile.
Verdict: I think this was a great box. The POP Vinyl, Arkham Asylum and Captain America items were the stand out hits for us. What did you think of the October Nerd Block box?
