Biff’s Pit Bull Hoverboards shirt – Value $10?
This month, you could have received 1 of 2 different Back To The Future designed shirts! As you know at this point, I love BTTF, so I was excited to see this Pit Bull hoverboard shirt, and I like that maybe it’s a bit more obscure. The second design is a simple ‘Hoverboards’ logo, with ‘Off The Ground’ as the tag line, as a call out to ‘Vans: Off The Wall’ slogan!
Poe Dameron The Force Awakens POP – Value $8.99 on Amazon
This month includes a Force Awakens Funko POP! On top of that, you received 1 of 5 possible POPs, I’m totally jealous, because I want them all – it may be a fun time to swap for these. You could have received, BB8, Kylo Ren, C-3PO, Stormtrooper, or Poe Dameron. I received Poe Dameron, who is played by Oscar Isaac – This gets me really excited for Star Wars: Battlefront in a couple of weeks, and then the movie next month!
Here’s a look at the POP out of the box!
Twelfth Doctor Pocket POP – Value $12.99 on Amazon
There were two possible Doctor Who Pocket POPs you could have received, the 11th or 12th doctor. I got the 12th doctor! I recently started to dabble into watching an episode or two of Doctor Who, but with so much TV to catch up on, I’m afraid I’ll get addicted to another show!
Episode 7: The Force Awakens Can Cozy – Value $5?
Next up, something to keep your drinks cool while binge watching Star Wars before December 18th! There were 4 variants of this cozy, you can see them on the card above. I receive the version with a grouping of the best droids out there – C-3PO, R2D2, and BB8!
Star Wars Mad Libs – Value $3.58 on Amazon
The last Star Wars item is a copy of Mad Libs. We’ve been getting a lot of Mad Libs in Nerd Blocks lately – so this trend seems to be continuing.
Claudia Wells Autograph – Value…um, priceless!
The very last item is a Sci-Fi Block exclusive Claudia Wells autograph. Claudia played Jennifer in the Back To The Future Trilogy – this is a great, and unique, addition to the block!
Verdict: This is a great first entry for Sci-Fi Block! I enjoyed every item included – I don’t have much use for Mid Libs though. I have the value around $41 + whatever you might value the autograph at. I did like that there were a lot of variations of the items this month, it will make for good swapping! I’m excited for the direction of this box, anytime you can get two Funko POP items in a box, I consider it a win!
What did you think of the very first Sci-Fi Block?
