This month’s theme was Summer Mixtape – I really wasn’t sure what to make of that theme, so I was expecting a mix of any type of items.
Who You Gonna Call? Shirt – Value $10?
Like I said in the Geek Fuel review, August may have be the best geek box wearable month for me, ever! I’ve recently caught up in the IDW Ghostbusters and TMNT comic runs, so the timing of the shirt is perfect. I absolutely love this one – keep the amazing wearables coming!
Ghost Trap Lunch Box – Value $10?
Here’s one of the exclusive items this month – a Ghostbuster lunchbox! I was instantly excited to root through my box when I opened it and immediately saw this lunch box. I love the look of it, you couldn’t have picked a better Ghostbusters prop to use for a lunch box. While I don’t need it for lunch, it’s easily usable for storage.
And then, when you pop it open…
Slimer Plush – Value $10?
Inside is this exclusive Slimer plush. It’s a cool plush that the dog has totally stolen, but it’s not the best looking Slimer I’ve seen – the look is pretty generic. I tried to go to the manufacturer’s website to see what their other monsters look like – but the website on the plush’s tag didn’t exist – so I can’t tell you if this is just the look of their products.
Awkward Family Photos Postcards – Value $7.71 on Amazon
When we got a spoiler that there was something from Awkward Family Photos in here, I really just assumed it was the book, and I think we had received it years ago in a box – so I was expecting this to be a wash. But, this is something I don’t have and can use – a set of postcards – so I’m pretty happy about this item.
Here’s a look at the cards.
Rubiks Cube Stress Cube – Value $8.47 on Amazon
I love getting stress balls/squishy items in boxes. I use them all the time while I’m working – it’s a really nice distraction while I think through some website issues/features while I’m building out new features for you all to enjoy!
A Coaster Of Kings – Value $5?
The last item this month was an exclusive set of coasters. Based on the house sigils from Game of Thrones, these are subtle, but recognizable. These are cool, but they’re just cardboard, so I’m not really sure how long they’ll actually hold up.
And just to get everyone as excited as I am for next month – they included a spoiler…
How pumped is everyone for this!? What do you think the item will be? Don’t forget to sign up now to make sure you get the Star Wars item!
Verdict: I wasn’t sure what to expect with this month’s theme, and true to form, it was kind of all over the place as I thought it might be. That being said – 3 items where Ghostbusters related which is an instant win for me! I’ll definitely use all the items from this box – the coasters are good in a pinch – so I was really pleased with Nerd Block this month!
