Sci-Fan Block is a block from Nerd Block. It was originally Sci-Fi Block (check out the old Sci-Fi Block reviews) but has now grown to include Science Fiction and Fantasy franchises. They set out to send 4-6 collectibles with an exclusive shirt each month.

March’s box had a theme! The theme was CYBORGS – and hinted at 4 franchises in the box.

Ghost in the Shell Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s exclusive shirt features the super-popular, and upcoming movie, Ghost in the Shell. The graphic is huge on the tee, taking up most of the front of the shirt.

Cyborg Martini Shaker – Value $15?

There are two Cyborg bar items this month, the first is a Martini Shaker.

I think this was a good idea, but it’s not the best quality. Everything is plastic and doesn’t feel like a high-value item – but it’s also top-rack dishwasher safe and microwave safe.

Cyborg Bar Mat – Value $5-10?

To go with your shaker, you’ll get a Cyborg branded bar towel.

It’s got an embroidered Cyborg logo, but other than that, it’s a normal towel – but it creates an interesting set that I didn’t expect to see in the box.

Star Trek Borg Ship Pin – Value $9.95

This pin is HUGE! It comes in at 2.25 inches tall and features the Borg Cube Ship from Star Trek – easily one of the cooler pins that we have received.

Judge Dredd Travel Pass – Value $13 on Amazon

I was surprised to see a $13 value for this item – I think that’s overpriced for sure.

This is just a thin piece os plastic with clear plastic inserts to hold a few cards.

Wild West vs The Future Art Print – Value $10?

The last item in the box is a Westworld print.

The print itself is unique – the gun has a bit of a 3D feel since it pops out from the page – it was hard to capture with a picture.

It also came in a protective plastic sleeve to keep it protected during shipping.

Verdict: This box was hit and miss for me. I really want to like the Cyborg shaker, because it’s a unique idea, but I think the quality just isn’t quite there for me to be really excited about it. But all of the other items, barring the Judge Dredd badge, were unique and high-quality – so, like I said, I’m just torn!

What did you think of the March 2017 Sci-Fan Block?
