Good To Know: Sci-Fi Block, like all other Nerd Blocks, does not have a monthly theme – but you will know at least a couple of the franchises that will be in the box before it ships.

Blade Runner Shirt – Value $15?

I love this month’s shirt. It features Blade Runner and is a call-out to the end of the movie where Deckard found the origami unicorn. I seriously need to rewatch this movie!

This was an amazing cinematic experience for myself when I was around 10 years old. The first time you saw the T-Rex, it was a special moment!

Judge Dredd Year One Omnibus – Value $7.99

The Judge Dredd item this month is the Year One mass-market paperback book – but with an exclusive variant cover!

From Amazon:

Three celebrated Judge Dredd writers take you back to Dredd’s first year on the streets of Mega- City One as a full-eagle Judge, in three thrilling novellas.

Bred to dispense Justice, the young Dredd is not the wizened veteran we know, but a Judge with built-in determination and little experience. In City Fathers, the brutal murder of a Justice Department-sanctioned spy uncovers something new and dangerous in the sector’s murky black market. Unless Dredd can stop it, chaos will be unleashed.

In Cold Light of Day, a savage killing spree results in the deaths of two highlyregarded Judges, and many consider Dredd to be responsible: a decision he made five years earlier – while he was still a cadet – has come back to haunt him. The third story in the collection will debut in this collection and is guaranteed to thrill.

Alien Abduction Pin – Value $5?

The final item of the month is an exclusive pin. I’m not big on pins, but I really like the design this month!

Verdict: This might be one of my favorite Sci-Fi Blocks to-date. I had multiple excitement gasps – which makes for a fun unboxing experience! From the shirt to the DVD’s – I think this month was a major win.

What did you think of the October Sci-Fi Block?

  1. I just got mine and it’s probably my favorite box so far! The MST3K set & the shirt pretty much made the whole box for me (but I liked everything). Definitely makes up for last month!

  2. I love this shirt! Any idea of the brand/ if it is sold separately as I missed out on the box!

    • Scratch that. I just read the little card and it said exclusive. 🙁

  3. I signed up because of the MST3K item and it ended up being something I already had! Still a great box but will be swapping a bunch of it.

  4. Love the scarf!!

  5. That scarf is hilarious/perfect! What a good idea to include a comics omnibus, too, rather than a single issue!
