Each month, in every block, they now include a $10 ShirtPunch voucher. You can use this money to buy any type of product in their store – and they have a ton of Funko POPs! This won’t cover your shipping, though, so you’ll be paying $6 shipping for a lot of items.
Labyrinth Shirt – Value $15
This month’s shirt features David Bowie from Labyrinth! I immediately thought of the Loot Crate shirt from earlier this year – but I actually like this one better! It’s pretty straight forward and less busy, so I like it!
Lord of the Rings Eye of Sauron Snow Globe – Value $15+?
The hero item this month is also an exclusive item. It’s a mini snow globe from Lord of the Rings.
Sauron’s gaze is in full-effect with this snow globe! It’s a cool design – I really like the ring around the base of the globe.
I’d say it’s about half the size of a standard snow globe – which I actually like better. I’m not a big snow globe fan, but something about the mini version made it cooler in my eyes.
Here’s a shot of the black and red glitter raining down on the eye of Sauron!
Lisa Simpson’s Guide to Geek Chic – Value $22 on Amazon
You receive one of five possible Simpsons books. the books feature Mr. Burns, Homer, Grampa Simpson, Bart, and Lisa. I got Lisa – and it’s full of good stuff!
The front pocket is loaded with stickers and posters!
The poster is awesome! The many faces of Lisa!
Here are the 4 large stickers included as well. I absolutely love the Super Friends sticker.
It also included a foldable fortune teller. Liz kindly put it together and demonstrated it for us!
Masters of the Universe figures – Value $10?
These are an exclusive color for Nerd Block – they’re typically a pink color. The 3 I received were Beast Man, Skeletor, and Trap Jaw.
They’re very tiny little figures – similar to toy soldiers – very retro toys, for a retro show!
Back to the Future Time Circuit Luggage Tag – Value $5?
This exclusive luggage tag features the time circuit from the Back to the Future Delorean! I don’t travel much, but when I do, this will be my new luggage tag – I basically love anything Back to the Future!
Ghostbusters Print – Value $5-10?
The final item this month was a Ghostbusters print. I don’t really care for prints, but this one is really great. I love seeing all the villains in one place! Check out the Scoleri Brothers on the left! Easily my favorite print of the year.
Verdict: I liked the August Nerd Block. The shirt, book, luggage tag and print are all awesome and fun! I do think that this is more 80’s kid friendly, though – so I might just be in the perfect demographic for these items. I really love the Simpsons books, I received the Homer Simpson book in the December Geek Fuel and liked that one as well – they’re just fun. I feel obligated to mention how much I love the $10 ShirtPunch voucher – I’ll be adding a POP to my collection with it!
