This box comes with a card detailing each item you’re about to pick through.
Boba Fett Shirt – Value $10?
Ok, so this is weird. This shirt is completely different from the shirt on the card (see above pictures). My box came super late this month, and I wonder if they ran out of shirts which is why it was late? I really can’t figure it out. That being said, I like this shirt more than the shirt on the card!
Doctor Whoo Wacky Wobbler – Tenth Doctor – Value $12.78 on Amazon
The featured item this month is a Doctor Who bobblehead from Funko! You could have received either the tenth or eleventh doctor.
Here’s a closer look at the bobblehead. It should come as no surprise that I like Funko bobbleheads!
ET Magnet – Value $5?
This is an exclusive E.T. item this month. It’s a little Speak and Spell magnet!
Here’s a better look!
Star Wars Projector Pen – Value $6.90 on Amazon
This pen projects a First Order Stormtrooper helmet on to the wall. I’ve received a bunch of these types of pens in subscription boxes. They’re fun to play with for a bit, but luckily I always need a pen!
Star Wars Sock Set – Value $10?
I’m estimating this value from similar products I found. This was a 5-pack of ankle high socks! Mine were all First Order related socks too. There were 3 different sets you could’ve received, which seemed to be heroes, villains, and first order.
Here are all of the socks! This was my favorite item of the month, I’m even wearing some right now.
Mad Max Comic – Max Part One – Value $4-5
This is the third time I’ve received this issue in a block – I received it in Comic Block and Nerd Block Classic. I’ve already read this one, and it’s a good issue – but I wish we’d get something new.
Firefly ReAction: Kaylee Frye – Value $10-12 on Amazon
The final item is a Funko Reaction figure from Firefly. You could have received Malcolm, Hoban, or Kaylee – and I got Kaylee! I can add this to all the stuff from Firefly Crate! She comes with a little wrench too – always ready to keep Serenity flying.
Verdict: This was a good box from Sci-Fi Block! The value is definitely there, and it spanned across a number of fandoms, so hopefully there was something for most fans. I’ve started getting into socks from subscription boxes, it’s kind of my thing at the moment, so the socks are a big win. I do wish the E.T. item was something a little more significant, but a Speak and Spell magnet is a fun little item, too.
