Dr. Bernardi Figure – Value $13 on Amazon

The Twilight Zone was represented with an old school figure! You’d receive 1 of a possible 11 figures.

At first glance, I had just assumed this was a Funko ReAction figure – instead, these are made by Bif Bang Pow.

They’re limited edition, too!

Sci-Fan-Block-April-2017-0027

I got Dr. Bernardi from the ‘Eye of the Beholder’ episode. The Twilight Zone was, and still is, a favorite of my mom – so I’m familiar with many many episodes and am loving these figures – I might have to buy a Henry Bemis figure!

Star Trek: The original Series Vintage Shot Glass 4-Pack – Value $11 on Amazon

You’ll receive a set of 4 shot glasses feature vintage-inspired art from Star Trek – there are 20 possible sets to receive!

Here is my set – how great is this artwork? What 4 glasses did you get?

Metrobot Pin – Value $5?

You’ll receive a Metrobot pin from the 1927 movie Metropolis. A fun surprise to see this included.

Sci-Fan-Block-April-2017-0018

Labyrinth: 30th Anniversary Special Book – Value $4.99 + Exclusive Variant Cover

They’ve included a 30th Anniversary Labyrinth comic with an exclusive variant cover.

Sci-Fan-Block-April-2017-0019

It features a bunch of short stories revolving around Hoggle, Ludo, Didymus, and Ambrosius – it’s a fun read for fans of the movie!

Sci-Fan-Block-April-2017-0015

Dune: Arrakis Art Print – Value $10?

Dune has made an appearance in a box!

Sci-Fan-Block-April-2017-0017

This print is inspired by the movie’s poster – it has some really cool embossed effects – it’s more of the better art prints I’ve received in a box!

Verdict: This was a fun retro-themed box for Sci-Fan Block! It spanned a lot of periods, films, and shows – but I think it all tied nicely together. My favorite item is the Twilight Zone action figure – it was a real nostalgic kick for me and may be my next collection!

  1. I got Dr. Bernardi, too. I got set #20 of the shot glasses: Where No Man Has Gone Before, Shore Leave, Metamorphosis, & Turnabout Intruder

  2. Oh I want everyone of those Twilight Zone characters!! Henry Bemis is $56 on ebay!! Yikes.

  3. This is a fantastic box. Gonna head over to swaps now…

  4. …do you mean Hoggle from Labyrinth? Either way, I’ll have to hunt down that comic!

    • Yep – auto correct doesn’t play nicely with Labyrinth character names.

  5. Yay! Mine is supposed to get here tomorrow! I ordered this box for the Star Trek & Labyrinth spoilers, and I LOVE those shot glasses! Will definitely swap for more if possible! And, not gonna lie, hoping for the Bob Wilson figure.
