Nerd Block Subscription Box Review – April 2015
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, so this box is now known as Nerd Block Classic.
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)
The Products: Every Nerd Block comes with a custom t-shirt (in your size) and 5-6 geeky items.
Ships to: US, Canada, and Worldwide!
This month’s theme is Growing Up 80s – and I think this might be the best Nerd Block box we’ve ever received!
On the flip side of the card, all the items included are detailed.
88 Miles Per Hour T-Shirt – Value $10
This shirt design is exclusive to Nerd Block subscribers, and officially my husband’s favorite tee he’s ever received in a subscription box!
Titans Vinyl Figures Ghostbusters Ecto-1 – Value $14?
This piece is designed exclusively for Nerd Block subscribers, so it is kind of impossible to know the exact value, but I suspect this piece will be especially popular on ebay/swaps – it is awesome!
PAC-MAN Heat Change Mug – Value $10
Another fun 80s item! (And a useful one too). Here is what the mug looks like before you add a heated beverage to reveal the characters:
I love that Nerd Block has started to include books in their boxes! Here is the summary from Amazon:
That Kevin Smith? The guy who did Clerks a million years ago? Didn’t they bounce his fat ass off a plane once? What could you possibly learn from the director of Cop Out? How about this: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-three, and since then, he’s done whatever the hell he wants. He makes movies, writes comics, owns a comic book store, and has built a podcasting empire.
Tough Sh*t is the dirty business that Kevin has been digesting for forty-two years and now he’s ready to put it in your hands. Kevin provides you with a blueprint for success, taking you through some big moments in his life to help you live your days in as Gretzky a fashion as you can: going where the puck is gonna be. Read all about how a zero like Smith managed to make ten movies with no discernible talent and how when he had everything he thought he’d ever want, he decided to blow up his own career.
Nerd Play Series 1 Cards – Value $3?
This is another Nerd Block exclusive item that I’m not sure how to put a price on. Here is the complete list of card options.
I was surprised to see these in the box since they were also in the February box, but everything else in this box is so awesome, it’s not a big deal to me.
Verdict: Based on my estimates this box has a value of about $50. I think the retail value is good, but even more importantly, we’re really happy with the curation! I hope they do a 90s box next!
What do you think of the April 2015 Nerd Block box?
