I <3 Star Wars T-Shirt – Value $10?

I’m loving this month’s shirt! Everyone has seen the ‘I Love NY” shirts, and this plays off those – but I love the Rebel symbol in the Millenium Falcon!

Funko POP The Collector  – Value $7.49 on Amazon

They include one of two Funko POPs from Guardians of the Galaxy! You could have received either The Collector or Yondu, and I got The Collector! I loved the GOTG movie, so of course, I immediately bought both lines of POPs. So, while I already own this, it still is a really awesome item!

Alien Funko ReAction – Value $8.28 on Amazon

A second Funko item! There were 4 possible figures from the Aliens franchise. Ripley, Kane with Facehugger, Kane with Chestbuster, and the Alien itself. I got the Alien, which is actually really cool – the best ReAction figure that I have received – but man, do I wish I had got Kane with Facehugger!

Here’s a close up. The clear plastic head comes off so that you can push a slider forward to push out its tongue.

Star Trek Communicator Note Pad – Value $5?

One of the exclusive items this month is this little notepad fashioned to look a Star Trek Communicator.

Star Wars Beanie – Value $24.89

The final item this month is this awesome Star Wars beanie! This is a great classic look and perfect for the current weather which is in the single or negative digits 🙁

Verdict: I loved this month’s Sci-Fi Block! I really do feel like this might be their strongest Block, in a close competition with the Classic Block. What was interesting this month is that (besides the shirt that’s always exclusive) there was only one exclusive, and it was a tiny item. It actually worked out, though, as the other non-exclusives were home runs.

What did you think of the February Sci-Fi Block?

  1. My son was looking at his Funko collection the other day and out of nowhere wondered if there was a Pop figure of The Collector! I told him I doubt it- shows what I know! Since you already have this one is it going up for swaps? 😉

  2. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your “nerd” box reviews! I read them all and save ideas for gifts for my dad and boyfriend (he loved his Batman Valentine’s Day items)- you make me look really creative and thoughtful 🙂

    • Awesome! So happy to hear it! 🙂

  3. With the exception of the notepad this box was awesome for me!!
    I already had an Alien figure and the one I received was a slight different variation so I was happy with that, the beanie….I currently wear that for work, Pop’s are always gratefully received and I got Yondu (which was awesome) then the tshirt was brilliant!!!
    Sci-Fi FTW this month!!

  4. I’m actually a bit disappointed in this month. For how much they pushed GotG and Star Trek in their newsletters and on FB, I expected there to be more in those categories. The Funko was kind of lame, and the note pad was a joke.
