Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon January 2016 - Scorpion bobblehead

Mortal Kombat X Bobblehead – Value $25.89 on Amazon

This is awesome! This is an exclusive variant of the bobblehead, it’s blood-spattered. I loved Mortal Kombat in my younger days! I have a distinct memory of seeing someone pull off a fatality at the local roller-rink, having him teach me on the arcade machine, then being super-excited when I went home and it worked on the Sega. Random memory.

Here’s Scorpion out of the box, you can see the blood-spatter much better.

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon January 2016 - Pokemon hat

Pokemon Beanie – Value $10?

While this isn’t marked as exclusive on the card, it does have an Arcade Block tag, so I’m assuming it is. I think I was a little older when Pokemon hit it big, so I missed out on this craze.

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon January 2016 - poral sign

Portal Saftey Tin Sign – Value $15.29 on Amazon

This tin sign is an awesome way to show off your Portal love! Love this! It’s about 10 inches wide and 5 inches tall.

Morphball Stress Reliever – Value $5-10?

The final two items are exclusives. First, this stress ball is modeled after a Metroid Morph Ball!

It’s really cool looking – I like it!

Puzzle Cube – Value $5-10?

A.K.A. a sweet Mario-themed Rubix Cube! This is the best Rubix Cu….sorry, ‘Puzzle Cube’ I’ve ever owned!

Here’s a closer look!

Verdict: This Arcade Block was a massive win for me, and might be their best box yet! I thought the items were great, and they had great value – you can’t lose there! It’s going to be interesting to see the competition between this box, and the newly announced LootGaming. In the end, we’ll all be winners!

What did you think of the January Arcade Block?
