Cobra’s Motto T-Shirt – Value $10?
This is a highlight for me. This, like all Nerd Block shirts, is from ShirtPunch. It’s a Karate Kid and G.I. Joe mashup – I was giddy when Liz pulled the shirt out and I saw “Sweep The Leg”!

Ghostbusters Wallet – Value $5-10?
I’m not sure how to put a value on this – but it’s a Nerd Block exclusive. When the wallet is fully opened, it resembles that iconic Ghostbusters trap, and on the inside it details some famous lines and enemies. While I don’t need a wallet right now, I’ll probably keep this around for future use. I’ve been very into Ghostbusters recently since I’ve started reading that latest IDW Ghostbusters run. It’s fantastic and has a lot of movie tie-ins!
Mad Max Comic – Max Part One – Value $4-5
This is from a recent Mad Max run that coincides with the movie of the same name. There are a couple of runs that focus on single characters like Furiosa and Mx – this one focuses on Max, and is the first issue. This is also a Nerd Block exclusive cover.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Titans Vinyl Figure – Spike – Value $13 on Amazon
The value I put on this is from a similar Titan on Amazon – but this is actually an exclusive variant Titan Spike figure, so the value is probably a bit higher. I was never a big Buffy T.V. show fan, I’ve probably seen the Buffy movie from 1992 much more than the show.
Iron Man Keychain – Value $6 on Amazon
This is the miniaturized version of the Age of Ultron Funko Pop Avengers line. I really like the full size version of this POP, it’s my favorite Iron Man POP that I have, so I love having a mini-version for my desk! And if you don’t use it as a key chain, like me, it simply unscrews from the top of the mini POP.
Transformers Danglers – Value $2-3 Based on Amazon 3-Pack
These are from the Dark Of The Moon movie and are made to be hung from a zipper. We got Optimus Prime!
Verdict: I *kind of* get the theme – but it does get a bit hazy when I try to include the Karate Kid into it – besides that, I liked this box. I like all the items in the box, the Transformers dangler is the one thing that I’m a bit impartial to, but that’s ok – it’s the lowest value item. I’m excited to start a new comic book as well! Has anyone read the Mad Max comics?
