Evolutions Shirt – Value $10?

This months shirt celebrates Pokemon’s 20th anniversary. There were 3 possible iterations of the shirt that you could have received. I never got into Pokemon, but I like the design of this, and the other, shirts.

Hyrulian Treasure Chest – Value $5-10?

This little treasure chest is celebrating all things Zelda, especially the release of the latest entry in the series on 3DS, Hyrule Warriors. It’s not much more than a little tin chest, but I love the design! Opening it up was like find a chest in the game, what could be inside??

Here’s what is inside the chest. While there’s nothing functional about it, it was still fun to unbox, and I can use the tin at my desk.

Mushroom and Pip Shakers – Value $20?

How cool are these salt and pepper shakers? Perfect for any Mario fan, these salt and pepper shakers feature two items you were always on the look-out for while gaming.

They’re made to be stacked on each other.

And finally, a look at the shakers themselves.

The BIT.TRIP Collection – Value $40-$50 on Steam

I’m pulling this value from the Steam cost for this collection, except the Steam collection includes a couple of bonus games, hence to dollar estimation. This is an exclusive DVD for Arcade Block, though, and it works with both MAC and PC! Yes! You also get a Steam code for the game as well on the back side of the info card.

I just tried out one of the game in the collection. It’s challenging and really run!

Sonic the Hedgehog Drinking Cup – Value $10 on Amazon

This was the month’s only non-exclusive item. I love Sonic the Hedgehog, I still play it today from time to time, so this tumbler will go to good use!

Here’s a look at the back of the tumbler as well.

Arcade Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon February 2016 - Hyrule map towels

Map of Hyrule Tea Towel Set – Value $10?

The final item this month is also from Zelda. These are exclusive towels depicting the map of Hyrule!

They were pretty large and hard to photograph. Here’s a good look at the entire towel.

Verdict: Another fun, and solid, month for Arcade Block! Nerd Block is getting pretty good at getting some fun exclusives, so this year has a good outlook for all the blocks. I had a blast unboxing this month’s box, tons of fun and original items in this box! Keep it up!

What did you think of the February Arcade Block?

  1. Did anyone else get soaking wet tea towels? Mine are really wet, and I’m not sure with what. It smells like some kind of chemical. MAYBE tea tree oil? It smells kind of herbal, not sure. I’m really weirded out by it.

  2. Loved everything especially the charmander T-shirt.

  3. Those maps looks amazing! And since they’re towels that mean it’s less risky if you ever get it wet at some point (unlike paper posters).

  4. This block was awesome for me! I loved every item I received!
    So much better than the junk we got in this months Horror Block!!
    Well Done Arcade!

    Did you guys manage to get one of the C2E2 Blocks they had a few weeks ago?

  5. I actually really love those salt and pepper shakers! I love that they stack! My son would also get a kick out of them. I wish I had stuff to swap for them. 🙂

  6. WOW, I love the Zelda items and the salt shakers! I need that Hyrule tea towel.

  7. This is the first time I’ve really loved everything in Arcade Block. After a year I was debating sticking around but this one has convinced me to stay. I am completely in love with those salt and pepper shakers.. I don’t care if I have too many!

    • I think the salt & pepper shakers are so cute! I just love little unique shakers like those.
      And I don’t think you can ever have too many… there was a story on “CBS Sunday Morning” yesterday about a salt & pepper shaker club or convention. Then they showed a few people’s colletions… some have hundreds, some a few thousand, but one lady has 55,000!
      It was a cool story, I think you can find it online to watch if anyone wants to.

      • Randi, if you’re ever near Gatlinburg TN, there’s a Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum that’s pretty amazing! 🙂
