Nerd Block does not have a theme each month – but, you will know at least 3 of the franchises included in the box when it becomes available for sale.

Each month also comes with an information card. You’ll find details on each item, including possible variants if there were any. This month was almost all exclusives!

Each month includes a $10 voucher to ShirtPunch. You can use this to purchase shirts and toys on their site – they have some POPs, too – you can get them for just the cost of shipping!

OK – on to the items!

The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features The Simpsons with a play on their classic Treehouse of Horror Halloween episodes! This past weekend was their 600th episode, which was also a Treehouse of Horror episode!

Ghostbusters Slimed Ray Stantz Vinimates Vinyl Figure – Value $15-20 for this variant

The next item is from the original Ghostbusters franchise and is a new vinyl toy line (for me, at least)! These Vinimates vinyl figures are from Diamond Select and are as tall as a POP.

This exclusive variant features a slimed Ray Stantz! There’s no articulation on these toys, except a very slight head adjustment.

Beetlejuice Handbook For The Recently Deceased Journal – Value $10?

I love this item. I’d love to see more Beetlejuice in all geek boxes – so I’ll take what I can get!

This 5.5″ x 4″ notebook has no secrets for drawing a passage door on the wall or anything like that – just a normal notebook!

Alien Xenomorph Egg Sale and Pepper Shakers – Value $10-15?

These are about the grossest looking salt and pepper shakers you’ll see.

These Xenomorph eggs have a glossy finish, giving them a little extra grossness – perfect for your Halloween party!

The Walking Dead Ear Coin Purse – Value $10?

The Waking Dead item this month is a mini coin purse.

Collect your coins like Daryl collected his ears with this little purse.

Scream Ghostface & Sidney Prescott Art Print – Value $7.84?

The final item of the month is a Scream print. This was created by Matthew Terrien – I like the art style! This is a limited edition run – you can find more side-by-side prints like this on his store.

Mine was also signed, I’m assuming by Michael.

Verdict: This month was mostly hits for me, so I’m happy with the October Nerd Block! I was really excited to see the notebook, shirt, and ghostbusters figure this month! New vinyl figure lines are always scary for me – I don’t want to get addicted to collecting another new vinyl line!

What did you think of the October Nerd Block? Did you have a favorite item?

  1. I love everything in here!!! Dang it

  2. I like the Walking Dead coin purse. it would be useful to put ear buds in as well. And I like the notebook although I wish there was secrets in it.

    • Earbuds…that’s hilarious!

  3. I love that journal!! @Eric Is it hardcover? I looked on Amazon and only see a larger-sized paperback version.

    • Well, I just saw that this is exclusive to NerdBlock….so likely won’t see it on Amazon 🙂

    • It’s a hardcover notebook!

  4. I am in love with the art prints on his site! I especially like the Alien one, but they are all great!
