Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon November 2015 - shirt

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!

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon November 2015 - POP

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!

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon November 2015 - stars wars and doctor who

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!

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon November 2015 - mad libs

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.

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon November 2015 - Claudia Wells Autograph

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?

  1. Being in a house of nerds, we had to add this to our subscription list. My husband gets nerd block (minus any vinyl figures) my son gets arcade (again minus any funkos) and I added this for me. I was not disappointed. The two funkos made this box for me. I got the BB82 funko and the 11th doctor. Loved the T-shirt and gave the Claudia Wells autograph to my husband. Was an all around win. I just wish my son wasn’t around the see the Mad Libs they would have been great for his stocking.

  2. Definitely a strong first month! I would’ve wanted the BB-8 Pop, but all of them are good.

  3. I thought this was a great initial offering! I got the C-3P0 Funko Pop! (to join my BB-8 Funko) and 11th Doctor keychain. Also got the same t-shirt and can cozy.

    Next month….Firefly! Pass? Go for it? Pass? Go for it?….

    • I was beyond excited about the Claudia Wells autograph!!! Just that made the box worth it. It will go great with my Pepsi Perfect, USA Today, Doc POP, mini hoverboard etc….okay yeah I think I might have a problem.

      I am so jealous of people that received C-3PO. If anyone receives C-3PO and would prefer BB-8 let me know.

  4. I know I’m reading the right review site when a Claudia Wells autograph is valued as being priceless. YES!

  5. Alright, now let’s create a Fantasy Block. You know you want to.
