It seems like they are dabbling with themes across their boxes. This one didn’t have a theme – but you’ll at least know a couple franchises in the box before subscribing.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt brings back Buffy! I like the graphic even if I was never a fan of the show – was I the only person who really enjoyed the movie from the early 90’s but didn’t follow the show?

Ghostbusters Funedibles Vinyl Figure – Value $17 on Amazon

The hero item of the box is this little vinyl figure featuring either Slimer as a jello mold or Stay-Puft as a, well, as himself – a marshmallow.

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0025

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0026

These figures stand 4 inches tall and have a great weight – they feel well build. I like the look of both vinyl figures – but it’s almost too easy to fashion Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man after a marshmallow!

Alien Chestburster Apron – Value $10-15?

This month features a kitchen item as well – you’ll get an Alien themed apron.

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0029

It’s the normal length, but quality-wise, it feels a little thinner and less durable than a typical apron. That being said, this apron has a MAJOR advantage over other aprons:

You can reproduce your favorite Alien scene!

Supernatural Belt – Value $10?

They include a belt featuring Supernatural.

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0016

It’s not the best quality belt and the belt buckle is just a sticker – so I’d imagine it could easily be damaged.

Hellboy Companion Trade Paperback – List Price $14.95 but it’s pretty old so you can get it new for $8 on Amazon

The last item is this Hellboy companion paperback. MAJOR book/comic foul – this was bent around another item to fit into the box!

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0018

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0019

Sci-Fan-Block-February-2017-0022

This is a cool item for Hellboy fans, though – or even someone just getting into Hellboy! It includes a ton of information on Hellboy, his enemies, and his world!

Verdict: I’m liking this month’s Sci-Fan Box – the only item that I wasn’t pleased with was the belt, but that was due to quality – if you’re a Supernatural fan, you might still be happy with it. When I first saw the vinyl figure, I didn’t think much of it, but after a closer look – I’m liking them and considering getting the rest of the collection!

What did you think of the February Sci-Fan Block?

  1. You are not alone! I liked the movie. I thought it was hilarious but thought the show took itself too seriously. So there are at least two people who liked the movie.

    • We do exist!

  2. I would buy this box INSTANTLY for the T-shirt alone, if it referenced the tv show. A Bronze shirt would be killer. Sorry, the movie holds no light compared to the tv show.

    • The shirt quotes the BTVS episode “Showtime.” I’m a huge fan of the show. The movie did nothing for me.

      Love this box and I’m so glad I got it. Although that belt is pretty lame in my opinion. I love Supernatural so I’m pretty bummed that is all it is.

  3. That vinyl figure is adorable! I might need to add them to my vinyl collection!

    I was/am a MASSIVE Buffy fan so for me the shirt is amazing!

    • I love buffy too (so much!) and I ordered the crate just for the buffy item, since you can’t find that much buffy stuff. I like to shirt and I usually like designs that aren’t in your face with the reference but I feel like this shirt is a little too sneaky. It’s very hard to see that it’s a buffy item.

  4. Love the Stay Puft figure!!
