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.
Here they are apart.
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.
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!
