Each month comes with a card to detail each item inside. This month’s theme was “80’s Takeover”. This was a perfect theme for me since I love almost all things related to 80’s comics, movies, and tv!
Rick Shirt – Value $10?
Ok – not sure how this ties into the 80’s theme (maybe time travel), but I absolutely love this shirt. Of all the shirts I wear from boxes, I’m most consistently complimented on anything Rick and Morty related. I’ll add this to my collection!
Stay Puft Plush – Value $12-15?
This month include a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man plush. Again – the eyes are absolute nightmare fuel – but I also love the Ghostbusters! This is a collaboration with Monster Factory toys, and all of their plush toys have these eyes.
OUTATIME Pin – Value $3-5?
This Back to the Future pin was an exclusive this month. You can’t do an 80’s themed geek box without Back to the Future! While I’m not a big pin collection, this is one I’ll keep around!
Long Duck Dong POP – Value $11.99 on Amazon
We got a POP this month! We were promised a Sixteen Candles item, and it was a Funko POP! You could have received Jake Ryan, Samantha Baker, or Long Duck Dong.
Here’s a closer look at the POP!
Captain America Mini Mug – Value $10?
You could have received either a Captain America or Iron Man mini mug. These are 6 oz. mugs, just in time for Civil War (again, not sure about the 80’s theme with these)!
Here’s a look inside – they’re teeny!
Here’s a look at the detail and paint job.
Etch A Sketch Sticky Notes – Value $7-8 on Amazon
The last item was a pack of Etch-A-Sketch themed sticky notes. I think everyone who grew up in the 80’s had one of these – and loved them!
Verdict: This was an interesting month of Nerd Block to me. Recently, they’ve seemed to be moving towards a ton of exclusives, but this month didn’t feel like it had a lot of exclusives, so I felt there was a chance to go even more 80’s with exclusive items. Overall, I enjoyed the box – even though a couple of the items don’t really fit the theme. Now we’ll see if I can sleep without nightmares of Stay Puft’s etched in my mind 🙂
