Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - coupon

This month came with a 15% coupon to Factoryent. I’ll probably find a use for this since I’m a collector – but I was looking forward to that ShirtPunch voucher so I could buy more POPs! I’m assuming we’ll find the voucher in next month’s box.

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - shirt

Jurassic Pops Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Jurassic Park. Get a free Velociraptor claw in each box  – it’s a fun shirt, but not really my type.

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - POP

David Levinson POP – $Value $8.79 on Amazon

I just received the younger version of this character in my POP in a Box from May – so it’s cool to get the older version from the new Independence Day movie. A movie I never thought they’d actually make – is it any good?

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - coaster pack

Back To The Future 4-Pack of Coasters – Value $10-15?

These are a set of exclusive coasters from Back to the Future! I love the outer casing  – Cafe 80s!

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - coasters

The coasters are AWESOME. I love that they included some images that you’d expect, like the Flux Capacitor, combined with images I would have never guessed, like the Pizza ad from BTTF 2!

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - print

Back to the Future Delorean Art Print – Value $10?

Staying in the Back to the Future theme – we also received an Andy Warhol style print of the Delorean. If I knew what to do with prints, I’d be ecstatic with it – but I never know what to do with them without space on the walls.

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - comic

Battlestar Galactica Exclusive One Shot – Value $3.99?

I valued this as a regular comic since it’s an entirely exclusive one-shot made for Comic Block. The first thing I thought was, I really hope I don’t also get this in the next Comic Block!

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - toy soldiers

Aliens vs. Colonial Marines Toy Soldiers – Value $5-10?

The last item is another exclusive. It’s a set of Aliens and Marines toy soldiers.

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - Marines

Here’s a closer look at the Marines.

And a closer look at the Aliens.

Sci Fi Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - toy soldier battle

It’s an interesting item – and I will admit that it brought out the inner child in me when I was setting up this shot!

Verdict: Overall, I really enjoyed this Sci-Fi Block! The Back to the Future stuff was cool and unique, and I got a POP – usually that’s enough for me. I really wasn’t too happy with the one-shot – it’s cool, but since it was made for Comic Block, I’m guessing that I’ll be getting a double of this soon. I hope they can keep up these strong Blocks, and am looking forward to getting the ShirtPunch vouchers next month!

  1. I got a voucher for shirt punch in my box.

    • Now I’m bummed out!

  2. Prints- maybe get a scrapbook for them, divde it by theme/character?

  3. Maybe you could get a standard-sized frame for your office and swap out the prints every once in a while?

    Those toy soldiers remind me of Toy Story…
