Nerd Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon – May 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.
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 Ani-May. (I’m completely out of my element with this theme, so I won’t have much to add to this review, but I will add a giveaway to the end of this review for the entire box. I’d like to see it go to someone who would appreciate it!)
On the flip side of the card, all the items included are detailed.
Dragon Ball Z Frieza (Final Form) POP Vinyl – Value $9
Totoro Buttons – Value $4
Subscribers will receive one of three Dragon Ball Z POPs. (I couldn’t find these exact buttons online, so I’m estimating on value).
GUNDAM T-Shirt – Value $10
This shirt is 100% heavyweight cotton.
Cowboy Bebop Brandana – Value $4?
This convertible bandana comes with a visual instruction guide to show you all the different ways to wear it.
Attack on Titan Cinch Bag – Value $14.50?
I’m not sure if this is a Nerd Block exclusive, but I wasn’t having luck finding the exact bag online, so I used the pricing from a similar bag.
Neon Genesis Evangelion Manga – Value $8
The book summary from Amazon:
Stunning, hot-headed Asuka Langley Soryu has been friends with Shinji Ikari since they were little. And she always sort of assumed they’d stay together – until the day the beautiful, brilliant Rei Ayanami showed up in class! When Shinji starts to get curious about Rei, Asuka needs to figure out if she wants to be just friends with Shinji, or something more. But why are so many people keeping an eye on these relationships – people like homeroom teacher Misato, school nurse Ritsuko, and Shinji’s mother – NERV’s chief scientist, Yui Ikari . . . ?
Verdict: As I mentioned earlier in the review, I’m out of my element when it comes to the Ani-May box, so I don’t feel I can do a good job giving a verdict, besides to say that I think they did a good job of curating around a theme, and the retail value seems to be there too.
