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”!

Nerd Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015 - wallet

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!

Nerd Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015 - madmax

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.

Nerd Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015 - pop-mini

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?

What did you think of this month’s Nerd Block?

  1. This is my first month trying this sub. I avoided spoilers except for what inspired me to push me to get this sub. – the Buffy hint.

    I was giddy to get Spike. I always preferred anti-heroes and Spike had some if the best lines! I for one thoroughly enjoyed both the Buffy movie and the series (and Angel FTW – one of best episodes ever – Smiletime!!!). The movie is lighthearted cheese sorta like the Xena series. The series gets a bit serious at times but has its share if laughter too! (Thinikin of Anya’s fear of bunnies). They did some serious stuff, think Joyce episodes, Halloween episodes were always a blast and I am nit ashamed to admit that I am still afraid of the gentlemen. *getting off Buffy soapbox*

    I have to say I was even giddier to see the T-shirt. I have lots if geek tees and this will he up there as one of my favorites!

    The ironman bobble is cute but will probably take a backseat to my Groot keychain and reside on my desk with all if my other toys.

    The ghostbuster wallet. Man, I love me some ghostbusters but this wallet us just…meh. I know it would be too much but even a mini (like the iron man) figurine would gave been awesome – thinking Stay Puft ideally.

    I loved Mad Max growing up (Tina Turner one) – I haven’t seen the latest movie but I heard it had some awesome girl power so its on my list when it is available on Redbox/whatever.

    That transformers… Argh. I loved transformers as a kid and these latest movies seem like an abomination so I didn’t even look at it much. If it us old school it will get a place amongst my toys if not…

    • Smiletime may have been the best TV episode of all time. …Okay, maybe not, but it was beyond awesome. Puppet!Angel nailed it. 😀

      I never used to have major feelings about the Transformers. Now I hate them. Thanks, Michael Bay.

  2. This is my first Nerd Block and I’m pretty happy with it! I couldn’t resist the Buffy spoiler – and Spike is my favorite character!!! WOO! 😀 (I wonder if we all received the same character.) I don’t collect vinyls, but he’s going right next to my Saul Goodman! 🙂

    HOW have you seen the awful Buffy movie more than the glorious TV show??? Bad geek!! … 😉

    I was also excited to see that the Mad Max comic is from Vertigo. I’m a liiiiittle bit of a comic snob and their books are usually smart and interesting. (Although I suppose they could have used the Vertigo imprint just because they can swear and be generally naughty.)

    The Ghostbusters wallet is a really cute idea but I don’t have a use for it, so I’ll swap it.

    It took me a minute to get the t-shirt mashup. It was cleverly done, but these are not my fandoms so I’ll likely put it up for swap.

    I think the G.I.Joe part of the t-shirt fits the Save the World theme, but yeah, the Karate Kid part muddies it a bit.

    Still loving your reviews, Eric!! 🙂

  3. I think this is the first Nerd Block that has more than one item that I want to keep. I gave the comic to my bf’s friends and I gave the transformer keychain to my niece. My bf is a huge Buffy fan so he was super happy with the vinyl and I kept the rest. That being said, I have the tshirt in a ladies 2XL to swap as I’m not really a fan of GIJOE or Karate Kid.

  4. I just wanted to say I love the IDW Ghostbusters comics! I’ve only read up to volume 7 so far, but they’re really great. I love the tribute they did for Egon. ❤️ 🙂

    • I haven’t read up to volume 7 yet – but I’m glad they did a tribute! I’ve been binging on IDW Ghostbusters and TMNT. Can’t get enough right now!

      • Yes, TMNT! That is another great series! IDW is doing well with the reboots. 😀

      • I too have gotten into the TMNT IDW comics as of late. It’s a good combination of the original story lines with a modern twist. I don’t recall seeing Ghostbuster issues though, I’ll have to look more into it.

        Also enjoy the Archie vs. Predator spinoff that’s out.
