Street Fighter V Shirt – Value $10?
This exclusive shirt has two variants, Ken or Ryu! We’ve seen a lot of Street Fighter in geek boxes with the new game being released this month! Expect more in February!
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.
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.
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!
