This month’s theme was British Invasion! The Mr. Bean spoilers had me super excited for this box!
On the flip side of the card, all the items included are detailed.
Mr. Bean Teddy – Value $10-15
Let’s start with my absolute favorite item in the box – Mr. Bean’s Teddy! If you are a Mr. Bean fan, you know that this Teddy is as iconic as the man himself. Upon opening, I immediately snapped a photo and texted a fellow Mr. Bean fan – so many memories! I couldn’t find this exact Teddy online, it’s made by ‘Fiesta’, so I had to ballpark the value with comparable Teddies available for purchase.
Mr. Bean Bendable – Value $8
An awesome representation of Mr. Bean! With Teddy in pocket and all! These two items had me absolutely geeking out.
Doctor Who Titan Figure – Value $10-15
This is the Titan of the 10th Doctor. It’s also a Nerd Block Exclusive (The glasses seem to be the differentiator from the non-exclusive version), hence the value range – I’ve only seen it available on eBay. Nerd Block has been including more and more Titan vinyl figures of late – I can’t remember getting a Titan in other geek boxes, but they are, at least, much more frequent in Nerd Block.
Monty Magnets – Value $10
I *think* this is an exclusive as well. I love the inclusion of Monty Python into a British themed box. It just makes sense. Most importantly, you have the capability of wording out “Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries” with these! Win!
Whovian Art Print – Value ?
This is an exclusive. Most of these Dr. Who prints are blue, like mine, but the info card says that a select few are green as well. Anyone out there get a green?
ShirtPunch Sherlock ‘Bored’ T-shirt – Value $10?
This ShirtPunch design is exclusive for this month’s Nerd Block. We love the BBC Sherlock show, it had been a while since we’ve last watched, so I admit I had to google the reference. But, then I instantly remembered, and Liz and I had a good laugh.
Verdict: I absolutely love the Mr. Bean stuff this month. I used to love watching old Mr. Bean episodes, so I’m immediately biased towards loving this box! While I don’t watch Dr. Who, the items are always so easily giftable or swappable. It certainly looks as if the trend for geek boxes is moving toward most, if not all, products being exclusives. I can’t argue with that, but it does make valuing items pretty difficult.
