First Order Stormtrooper Shirt – Value $10?

I’m loving this month’s shirt! You can expect a ton of Star Wars in boxes this month, which makes me excited! I love the graffiti style, and the colors, on this shirt.

sci-fi-block-dec-2015-POP

Firefly Funko POP Captain Reynolds – Value $9.95 on Amazon

They include a POP this month (yay!) and it’s from Firefly! According to the card, it looks like you could receive 1 of 5 possible POPs, and we got the Captain! Since I’m not a huge Firefly fan, I’m slowly building a good giveaway.

Here’s a look out of the box! Just noticing that the mark on our photo board makes it look like he’s got a smoking gun!

Star Trek Tribble Screen Cleaner – value $10?

One of the 4 exclusives this month is this Tribble screen cleaner. I gave it a test cleaning the screen of my iPad and it worked really well, so I was happy about that. I’ll just have to watch where I leave it because it is a prime example of a toy that my dog would love.

Paranormal Investigator Patch – Value $5?

Another exclusive this month is this X-Files inspired patch. Has anyone stayed up-to-date with IDW’s X-Files series? Is it worth reading?

Sci-Fi Block Ray Gun – Value $2-3?

The last exclusive is this little ray gun keychain. It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more keychains/metal exclusives from this company, Pennyroyal Studio since they’ve now had a couple exclusive across the different blocks in the most recent shipments.

Star Wars Villain Prints Set of 3 – Value $30?

These prints are designs from Lee Howard, who did one of my favorite items from a subscription box – this Hellraiser Canvas! While I wish these were also canvas, these are very nice, thick cardstock prints that are ready to be framed!

Verdict: I thought this was a strong month for Sci-Fi Block! I really enjoyed the print set, tribble, shirt, and Funko POP! This is looking to be a really promising block moving forward, so I’m excited to see what the future holds for it!

What did you think of December’s Sci-Fi Block?

  1. Does anyone know how to get a customer service issue escalated? I’ve had lots of trouble just getting my Dec Sci Fi block and then it arrived and the prints were obviously damaged prior to shipping.

  2. I just got my block today and I was very pleased – I was almost ready to give up on Nerd Block but the Sci Fi block has, so far, been consistently strong. I’ve been even more pleased with it than with LootCrate. I’m probably going to keep it.

  3. What a great box! I have all of those pops already except the Captain and Zoe. I wish theyd hurry up and make pop versions of Inara, Book, Simon, and River. If anyone has info on those let me know please. Also Eric you have to watch Firefly. Best show ever!

  4. I really lived this box. Can UK based people use the swaps page?

  5. And this is the point at which we all say “ERIC, YOU HAVE TO WATCH FIREFLY!!!!” 😉

  6. I’m not into geek boxes, but what amazes me is that you get a shirt, three art prints and four other items in a $30 (shipped) box. And four are exclusives that actually have time and thought put into them. Not to mention, it looks like they have 21 shirt size options, and box options to suit various interests.

    Meanwhile fashion/lifestyle subs rarely offer exclusives or customization and cost at least $10 more. I don’t get it!

  7. Omg i neeeed that patch!!!
