Wind Walker T-Shirt – Value $10?
This month’s t-shirt is a Legend of Zelda t-shirt. At this point, I expect to find a Zelda item in every Arcade Block – it seems like it’s almost a requirement for a video game themed box!
5″ Goomba Plush – Value $7.58 on Amazon
This is my favorite item this month, it immediately put a smile on my face! It looks like this is one of two possible plushes your could have received this moth, the other being a Ghost plush! I really like both, but I’m happy I got the Goomba! Such a classic!
Springz Chicken – Value ?
This is another throw back to Zelda and attacking chickens instead of getting on with your quest! We received a Star Trek Springz item in this month’s Nerd Block Classic – it seems like Springz maybe become a mainstay? I hope not, I like my Star Trek Springs item, but one is enough for me!
Galak-Z 7″ Record – Value ?
I thought it was pretty unique including a 7″ vinyl in this box! I’m not sure if it’s the best idea – I have a lot of vinyl, but it will probably find more people who don’t have a turntable than do. Smartly, they include a link to stream the record as well.
If you got the urge to get back into vinyl – they also threw in a 15% coupon to use at Crosley’s website!
Key Chain the Hero’s Shield – Value $5?
Here’s an exclusive this month – it’s a Zelda shield keychain. Lots of Zelda this month – and this isn’t the last Zelda item! This is a cool little keychain!
The Hero’s Triumph Canvas – Value $15-20?
Last but definitely not least – this beautiful Zelda canvas! I love that they included a canvas – and a beautiful print to boot! The last time a canvas was included in a block was the Horror Block from this March – and I absolutely loved that one too! More canvas art please!
Verdict: This month’s Arcade Block was good, but was heavy on Zelda, which isn’t my favorite game, which decreased my excitement a bit. That being said, I’m a big fan of the canvas print and the Goomba – more canvas prints please! I love the art that I can immediate display, unlike the prints that are on a piece of card stock or something. While this box would be a major hit for Zelda fans, it wasn’t my favorite Arcade Block.
