Big changes to the Nerd Block subscription for 2017! The items are now selected across a theme, with new packaging and a mini magazine!

This month was all about Iron Man!

The info cards are now all gone – instead, you’ll be able to browse this mini magazine.

If you subscribe to other geek boxes, you’ll be familiar with the format of this magazine. I’m glad to see them move towards something a bit more detailed!

You’ll still get a $10 voucher to the Nerd Block shop. This code is free to the first reader to use it!

Iron Man Blueprint Shirt – Value $15?

This month, everything is exclusive to Nerd Block. This month’s shirt shows off some Tony Stark blueprints for an early suit.

Stark Industries Whiskey Glass 2-Pack – Value $20-25?

I was a bit surprised to find these in the box this month – in a good way.

These glasses have an etched Stark Industries logo in the glass.

 These reminded me of the glassware from the initial Loot Crate DX delivery. That’s a pretty great item to receive in a normal tier geek box!

Engraved Drinking Stones – Value $15?

What’s better to go with your drinking glasses than some Iron Man drinking stones!

Nerd-Block-January-2017-0022

There are 4 different designs for each granite cube. These are about the size of a normal die piece, may slightly bigger.

Iraon Man 3D Molded Mask Magnet – Value $5?

The next Iron Man item is a mini mask for your refrigerator.

This magnet is about 2 inches tall and looks like it’s hand painted on porcelain. The painting itself it’s the most precise, as well.

Nerd-Block-January-2017-0014

Arc Reactor Pin – Value $5-10?

The final Iron Man item of the box is an Arc Reactor pin.

Nerd-Block-January-2017-0015

This is definitely a pin that makes the most sense in an Iron Man box!

Verdict: There were a lot of changes for Nerd Block in the beginning of 2017 and this certainly feels like a bit of a different box. I;m always very much in favor of a theme – and the fact that this one was such a specific theme – Stark Industries – was even better. I’m really excited to see what’s next for all the different Nerd Block lines in 2017!

What did you think about the new format for the January 2017 Nerd Block?

  1. Wow! December and January were a big win for me! I forgot to pause January’s subscription due to the theme, and I’m glad I did forget! I was about to also cancel February since I’m not a fan of Donnie Darko and Back to the Future (though I like Doctor Strange and I’m curious about the t-shirt’s design), but now I’m not so sure, maybe the itens will be worth it.

  2. I guess whiskey glasses are a step up from the mugs we always get, but I’m still not crazy about them. And unfortunately the magnet, ice cubes and pin don’t really make up for it.

  3. I cancelled the Classic Block several months ago. This is the first box I have seen in a year that I actually would have wanted. Even though sad I missed out on it, hitting 1/12 isn’t a good ratio. :/

  4. Looks great, slight FOMO but I cant afford them all haha.
